bug and worm and such...

Post by almo » Tue Jun 13, 2006 6:39 am

I don't know if this is the right place for this message or not, so let me know if I'm in the wrong. I don't normally post on message boards for lack of anything to say, but I'm desperate for some critiques of my comics/web site, and I value the opinion of the folks on these boards. If anyone has a chance, please take a look and give me some comments.

And like I said, if this is the wrong place for this, please let me know.

Thanks!

I really like them! it may be that I do like it because I like pixel art in general... but anyway there's sometghing interesting about them. I think the dog in space comics are visually less catching (maybe the fact that you combined photos with drawn characters is a bit strange... or let's say the combination is a bit too crude maybe). nonetheless I think there's some potential.
(but of course I'm nobody to say anything right now... since I just arrived to this forum as you can see :) ).

For some reason, I really like the way it looks when people combine live action stuff with animation. That was the look I was going for in Dog in Space. It may not work as well when the planet/rock is the only photo peice of it, though...

I actually enjoy dog in space quite a bit as it is. I wouldn't change anything about it.

my 2 cents

I'll try to explain it a bit better: I really like to combine photografic material with handdrawn one, but somehow I think tecnical aspects should never be too much in the foreground in an illustration or a comic, exept when that is what I want to talk about in the story/picture. When I immediately see that the dog is handdrawn and the palnet is a photo, I focus too much on that tecnical aspect, I expect it to be a relevant part of the story, I expect it to tell me something... what I want to say... it might not be what you intended, is it?
a good example of how to integrate the two things IMHO is this: http://www.samorost2.net/
