Latra & Lontra: Playing It Cool

New Comics

I felt like revisiting these characters for the first time since the end of March; you can see the first comic featuring Latra and Lontra here. My scanner didn’t like all the earth tones and red and yellows, and tried translating them all in the bright orange, and my lack of skill with image editing is pretty apparent, so I’m really unhappy with the scans here and all the inconsistent coloration. I’ll need to make sure and add some greens or other colors into future comics to balance things out a little more, and maybe fuss with the scanner and GIMP more. I guess that’s part of where digital artists have it easy–just click on a color from one page to drag it over to the next.

Right now the characters are all sort of one-trick ponies; since these are sort of a fun sideline, maybe it’s all they’ll ever be. I’m having fun with them, though, which is the most important thing. if others get to enjoy them, so much the better!

Species portrayed: Coyote (Canis latrans), North American river otter (Lontra canadensis), American badger (Taxidea taxus)
