Re: 6-Commando

This project goes forward apace. I am particularly happy with the current page. http://www.viciousprint.com/6commando/comics/2010-03-31-E1P19.jpg I've gotten a lot of really great comments and support from lots of Flight forum contributors, so thanks everyone! And if you haven't yet, I hope you'll s...

Re: MEGA WEST (*updated 3/29*)

I like the facial expressions on this page in particular. And the line work is really falling into a very good groove. Keep it up!

Re: the End. (short comic)

In spite of your preliminary statement, I have to say that this reads more as a kind of limited and snarky jab at christianity, which is disappointing. But on the other hand, the linework is really impressive - clean and very slick, with expressive layouts and colors. A really nice piece of artwork,...

Re: Moon Town - Book #1 COMPLETED!

Congratulations on the completion! A real milestone. After a certain point this kind of project reaches critical mass and sustains itself, and having an actual book in your hands is a really wonderful accomplishment.

Now excuse me while I nick off and order my copy...

Re: New guy, new work, looking for a critique

The layout of the latest page is really quite good! In particular I like panels two, four and ten, which are remarkably expressive - two and four, in particular, with just the face in the corner, suggest the gesture of the rest of the body, with the robot leaning in closely to observe. I love it, fr...

Re: 6-Commando

So, I went off a-traveling, and Flight denizens Joost and Gunwhale rose to the occasion and filled in for me! And HOW! Their guest art was not only much appreciated, but was really stunning, and I wanted to take the opportunity here to direct everyone to it! These guys blew me away, and I can't than...

Re: 6-Commando

I appreciate the advice, Joost, and it's well bethought! Frankly, things are still in flux anyway, so there's little reason to be thinking about editing now anyhow! It's a backwards way to go about a graphic novel, I guess, being so experimental, but it's working for me, so I'm just running with it!...

Re: New guy, new work, looking for a critique

A agree about the lineweights - if you're using technical markers like Microns or Copics, you might buy a couple different thicknesses and vary them as you go. But I think that only a little variation would go a very long way. Part of the charm of this is how clearly readable it is - you immediately...

I agree! There's something about it that reminds me of Edward Gorey, for some reason. Keep it up!

Re: Photoshop color management

There's a color-matching client I've used in my studio (the professional one, not my personal setup) called Chromix Color Valet that, if I remeber right, supposedly syncronizes color settings to the pantone catalogue so that they transfer properly to other computers and to printers. So it might be w...

Re: The Wellkeeper

The trailer was a great idea - I toyed with something like that for my story Hotel Metropolitan , but I had to put that project on hold before I got anywhere near putting that together. I think it's remarkably clean; I was surprised, actually, as I was expecting a Flash animatic or something, not an...

Re: Semmie the Forest gnome [Updated 29 jan]

The last three panels are particularly effective, I think - the progression of action is very good and easy to follow - and you ended the page on just the right note - it almost compels you to turn the page! This is really developing well!

Re: Are all of you full time artists?

I'm an architect. I don't know if that counts. I consider it a kind of applied art - not really "Art" art, but kind of half-breed, when all the engineering and such is added into the mix. Comics are what I do to relax. If you could call it that.

Re: Zita the Spacegirl: Infectious

I love these. I love them completely and totally, in ways that man should not love an inanimate object. But seriously. What I love is that they're so expressive, and seem so effortless. They're another example of what I believe comics ought to be - not an imposture where the art overwhelms the reade...
