Well, I can show the first couple of changes.
After getting some flack on the internet for the original design basically being Superman, I decided a redesign was in order. I took a bunch of unflattering reference photos of myself and got as far from the last design as I could (except for the cape). Another problem with the original design was the short legs. It looked tolerable standing up, but tipping him on his side while flying was a little ridiculous. Those tiny legs just didn't hold up.
With the new design in place, I built the character up in pieces from both the front and side angles (additional angles coming). Then, I started rigging the bodies with a skeleton so that they could be animated.

With the rigging in place, I animated a simple "idle" loop and attached a cape animation. I did the two separate to break up the cycle.

Next, I started rebuilding the backgrounds. I reworked my first "shop" in a more simplified design to keep my file size down. The new version is bigger and only 12kb.
There is still plenty more to do, but I thought I would show some of the new changes. You can see much more at my personal blog: www.NeedYourDisease.com
