Oojo and Bink is a webcomic that I draw about an alien prince and his closest aide exiled on planet Earth. This is what the characters look like now:
Oojo and Bink haven't always looked like this.
When I was developing the characters several years ago, I doodled them on paper in different shapes, sizes and patterns.
For example, I drew Prince Oojo with spots...
And I wondered how Oojo and Bink would move around...
Perhaps they needed different eyes...
Or their existence on Earth was a secret, and they would need to disguise themselves as humans or animals!
But, in the end, I decided to let Oojo and Bink be their alien selves. They would keep their big, bulging eyes. And they'd move around using their long, dextrous tails.
Oojo would lose his spots, of course, but otherwise Oojo and Bink would keep their original forms, pretty much as I drew them when I was a schoolboy.
