EDIT: Well, it seems to be using the last modified time from the server on the local filesystem... EDIT2: I'm now using "wget --trust-server-names --no-use-server-timestamps -a [Image URL]" as my command.
Female-stick-figure has turned her head back, but it's a different image than the first two.
Maybe it's just because it's really late and when I first saw the comic I expected it to be animated and was half-expecting a screamer or something, but the mysteriousness of it all is just giving me kind of a creepy vibe. The comic went up at am (stupid DST), first update at am, second at am. We're actually up to no fewer than 4 distinct images now. -- Day 1 --0000ish: (real URL unknown, this is from this post)0030: ...
A new image every 30 minutes seems to be the pattern.

OTOH, the comic is simple enough that the placement of heads, arms, and legs could be algorithmically generated.
The third picture could be a representation of the time when he used that style there perhaps were hard times between the two of them. While there is a certain beauty that comes out of a slow, drawn out tease, I too would like to see what happens when a very bored, and properly motivated group of people can do. Randal could draw one of these perhaps every 5 seconds - if he spent 12 hours total doing so, this would go on for 6 months. Perhaps this is a recollection of how he's become better at drawing and developed his style as time has gone on? As someone on explainxkcd pointed out, 5 years from now, there very well could be a tree growing there.

Perhaps this is a recollection of how he's become better at drawing and developed his style as time has gone on? Ignoring how exactly he's doing this, one thing I've noticed between the images is that the drawing style is slightly different each time, while the position has been relatively the same save for the third picture.
