When I initially drew the dummy for Icky Ricky I used a very different design for him. My editor loved the dummy, and most of the character designs, but felt that Ricky wasn't unique enough. So I sat down and tried to come up with something that would stand out on every page. Here are 6 pages of Ricky sketches that eventually lead to the final design.
There's some stuff in there that doesn't work at all, but you have to get the crummy ideas out of the way so that the good ones can show up.
