Electroboy started life as a sketch for Friday Coloring Book on LiveJournal. My first version cast him as more of a Hornboy (as seen below), but I really wasn't happy with it after I was done. Just to see what would happen, I turned off all of the strokes (the hard black outlines) and was immediately enamored of the result. I changed the color scheme, removed the horns and replaced his hair with fire. Oh, and I added an eye. Electroboy has been more or less my mascot and sidekick for a while. I'm very fond of him.
