At this rate I'm never going to get the game done; I spent a few hours putting together a mockup of the bar scene using graphics similar to the old demo. I decided to scale the characters up a little bit as the current scene made the ceilings look 20 feet high (I could fit 2 doors top of each other on one wall in the office from the demo.) They still seem a bit too high, but it's much better than before. I've also swapped the PoV; originally you were looking at the front of the bar whereas you're now looking at the back.
I'm still not very happy with this art style. It doesn't look terrible or anything, but I'm wanting more of a cartoony style with a light palette (something similar to Phineas and Ferb.) I have a couple other people that I know that draw, so I'm going to check with them; hopefully one of them will pan out. If not, I'll take to the interwebz to see who I can find.
Back to working on the demo data and seeing if I can push any more bugs to the surface in the editor.
