Zita on her own?

Post by househatke » Mon Feb 16, 2004 8:13 am

Hey folks.

I've been thinking of giving Zita the Spacegirl her own website so that I can separate off my portfolio from a place where I can just have some fun.

Here's a homepage image I came up with (you have to imagine some links below the title):

Here is an older picture I made that might also work:

And just because I can, here are some too-cute cats the I drew up for a Kindergarten phonics book:

Those pictures are extremely cool! I actually like the second Zeta picture better than the first... I dunno why. I think you should definitely give her her own website. Yep.

All the pictures are nice but from what I've seen of your site and the Zita strips on there, plus the one posted here, the first image captures the feel of the strip best. By all means, give her her own site, or at least a sub site or page dedicated solely to Zita. How about some more Zita strips on a regular basis (hint hint)? Pretty please? :D

That's a great idea, Ben! I say do it! :D And I like both images, but the first Zita looks better.

I like the first one alot more, its just a better drawing all around. If you choose the second one I think you should re-draw it. Update it with your new style, cause the styles are totally different to me too.

Really nice pieces though. I wanna see more stuff.

The first one is much better. Can't wait to check the site.

The first one is definitely the best. Zita doesn't look like someone who would shoot another being...ok, maybe I don't know her well enough.
I wish ...

I agree, the first image seems to fit in much better with the comic's style & themes. They're both great, though.

Coming from a purely graphic designer standpoint I think you should go with the top image. Make sure to send along the link if and when the site ever goes live. I'm doing something along the same lines with my own site...seperating things and what have you.

Thanks for all the opinions!

Looking at the two images, I'll definitely go with the first. The second (older) one is not as in line with the way Zita seems to be going, but I've always liked that mushroomy alien.

The comics will start coming along more regularly starting this summer when my schedule clears up a bit. I'm also planning on releasing the site in the warm months. Right now I'm living the artist's dream of having more work than I bargained for!

That's a cute character, and I liked the Zita strip posted in the other forum. Nice logo, too.
