My guess is that they would still pretty much mean the same thing.
R. Stevens said via Twitter: “@pierski, nicely done!”
Richard Stevens, not to be confused with myself Steven Richard, creates Diesel Sweeties. And I felt that it would be a fun still to emulate. I like creating the sprite based What if…?s, but there’s so few of them. I mean you’ve got 8-bit Theater, Diesel Sweeties and… that’s about all I can think of. See what I mean?
Clarification: Let me specify that there are a lot of sprite based comics, but there are so few big name webcomics that use original sprites. Diesel Sweeties and Comet7 (which no longer updates) used their own custom sprites, but that’s about all I know about. I made an exception for 8-bit Theater because of being synonymous with sprite comics themselves.
Oh, here is a non anti-aliased version of comic before it was shrunk down for the website.
