i wish i could have read something like that when i was younger. my mother told me my cartooning was crap, my father told me comics are crap, and my "friends" (who, i suppose would qualify as the "peers" mentioned in frank's first post) in college became irate if i didn't follow their advise to perf...

it makes me wish i had a news site so i could get my very OWN todd goldman cease and desist letter.

i sort of feel for his lawyer though. poor guy's probably pulling his hair out over goldman's insistence on being a complete tool.

i love penciled comics, when they're done right, and I favor my own work in pencils--i never have found a thin enough pen nib to satisfy me. however, i do want my penciled comics to be clean. it is distracting to see the crossed placement lines on faces of characters. if someone is doing a comic in ...

i agree with the "get in where you fit in" comment. i'm like you--i'm doing a ridiculously large project without doing any sort of small ones as warm up. i had intended to do small ones, following the conventional wisdom, but, i was impatient to start the project i actually wanted to do . impatient ...

mm. i'm by no means a pro illustrator, but i wouldn't start a habit of "eating it as business costs," unless you gave her some bogus "garunted will last forever!" agreement. i wouldn't necessarily re-draw it either. she clearly likes THAT piece, and people often get attachments to particular images....

those ARE cute.

but, where are the tanuki's colossal balls? i thought those were intrinsic to the creature's myth.

i think i remember seeing this on deviantart. i'll have to double check, but i'm pretty sure i have you watched there. it amused me then, and it amuses me now. my only crit is that i sort of wish the gorilla was bigger.

reworking pages is so much harder than just doing them well in the first place.

critique/advice is deeply appreciated!

the guy accidentally shaved through a sideburn. it's very cute. you know--and this is no remark on skill, honestly. for speed's sake, if you wanted to make things quickly, you could make a standard set of backgrounds for re-use on panels like this, where only the characters change, and just lay the ...

one piece better than watchmen? . . . i ADORE one piece. however, i love it as what it is--a really goofy and fun adventure for kids. i respect watchmen as what it is: a dark and well made tale for older teens/adults. they are not for the same audience, nor are they in the same genre or really posse...

you shouldn't feel any guilt about using watercolor. it's a beautiful effect. i agree that you need a different title font--and you need to not ruin the page with bright retina-scorching red. it seems woefully out of place with your beautiful grey-toned comic. you said you were hand-lettering before...

that depends on how gullible your audience is. seriously. many people find sci-fi to be more palatable than fantasy, because instead of magic, which requires a significant suspension of disbelief, you use science to do everything. and there's people that cannot take either of them, and people that c...

that is a damn happy robot.

you say "for a publisher"--is this going in a magazine or an anthology or something?
