Sketching and doodling are very important. Its often where ideas are born. I first sketched O-Boy on a 3 inch piece of scrap paper. I was trying to draw a cute baby like character. I thought his hair kind of looked like a retro space boy, so I decided to make him a super hero complete with a cape.
All this time I was putting together a story for him as well as other characters which will be featured in the comic
Update: That first drawing was done over 2 years ago. Since then O-boys look has continued to go through some variations as you can see below.
