The Max and Alex Clones



Some people have mentioned to me upon seeing "Sour Grape Candy" that the characters Alex and Max look very similar. The reason for this was an oversight on my part. I started drawing the final pages for the comic without having drawn detailed character studies for Max and Alex. The visual differences between Alex and Max are that Alex has spikey hair, darker hair, slightly darker skin and wears brighter clothing while Max has lighter hair, whiter skin and wears more neutral clothing. Other than that the characters can often appear to be identical in facial features and body size. In order change this for future versions of this comic I have begun doing quick character studies of each of the main characters in order to have a more consistent and distinct look to each of them. This picture is of Alex Goodwin.
