Evolution of the SQUID

Its been over 6 years since I first drew my little squid mascot and hes remained fairly unchanged. Until now that is. As I move further along the design process for my SQUIDTANK shirts, I’m finding a need for him to evolve. I’ve been pretty reluctant to change his look, though with the shirt designs and potential comic needing a more versatile character, I’m finding his current design a little too restrictive. Hard to get expressions across without any eyeballs. My dilemma is how far do I go. At the moment I’m sitting comfortably with the second option though I may need a lil of number 3 thrown in. Its going to take some experimenting to get right and I’ll need to run him through a rigorous testing routine, but I’m sure I’ll work it out.

Rest assured, he will never go as far as number 4!
