Here are some pages I was doing for a website ( http://www.quantaacademia.com/quantoon/ ) with my friend Maki ( http://alexandremaki.livejournal.com/ ).
He wrote the script and I did the rest...it was mostly for praticing.

I really like the first one. Some of the dialogue in the others distracted me... broke up or broken up? I guess different people say it in different ways.

The first one really struck me, girls like that are ... gah.

Anyway, these are really cool with a good style but do watch that grammar eh, it hurt some times.

For example "brake" isn't the same as "break" :)

There's a lot to love here.

First of all, your colours are to die for, just across the board.

In the second strip, it's a nice conceit that the glare of the TV obscures the girl a bit, leaving the main character the focus of the shot. I also love that she's not doing anything all that horrible... just watching TV, and the guy has to take refuge from her. It says so much about their relationship.

In the third one, it's the kid in the background that gets me. Here are these two guys having a serious discussion, but there's a kid at the beach, kicking a ball and having fun, oblivious yet to all of life's big emotional crises (one hopes). It provides a sweet contrast and opens up the world behind them. It's a living world back there, not just a backdrop.

I like how the fourth one just leaves you hanging. No resolution. Just a girl left behind on the steps, and the dying rings of the bell as the relationship fades away.

Anyway, there it is... if you care what Random Artist #8,234,563 has to say.

You're very good at this. Thanks for sharing, and for the inspiration.
