The inking's not bad in these strips. It shows that I had learned a lot since the first GGaR chapters, and let me tell you, traditional inking isn't easy to master! And I'm far from being master of any tools (which is fine since I love improving over time :)) 

I switched to digital inking in later GGaR chapters, and stuck with it for quite a while, before returning to traditional ink for the 1000th strip I think. This comic was always a bit experimental, and I'm glad I leaned on that to try out new things, while still keeping the same (ever evolving) style. Though I can tell which art phase I'm in when looking back at these, which comics or other art mediums influenced me at what time. 

The skinny waist, sometimes angular, cartoon vibe is heavily influenced by Bruce Timm (who shaped the style of the 1990s batman animations) and these strips above must be around the time where I took a lot from Disney's way of depicting female faces (big eyes, button nose, perfect oval shaped head, you know the drill!)

Whatever the influence and changes, I feel (I hope!) that the main vibe from GGaR was kept intact from start to finish. Yes there were changes, even story-wise, but I'd rather risk disapproval of too much change than realizing that a comic of mine becomes stale, or stuck. 

I know there definitely was a few readers who stopped reading GGaR later on because there isn't as many boobs and sex jokes :D
