Hey, you can't get any feedback.






only teasing.

But the feedback i'll give you is: just keep making images and you will gradually refine and develop your unique personality quirks...

second, your comic would look much nicer if the gutters were white, IMO. The heaviness of the black is stifling the delicate watercolor images.

Funny that Frank would say that. It's the very first thing i noticed too..the black lines.
None of the values of your watercolor are as intense as that black, hence, it is the first and almost only thing you see. If you try squinting your eyes, you'll see what I mean.

White would work well indeed.

Other than that, I think your watercolor work is great.
It does feel a little heavy handed at times, and I'd like to see you be a bit more spontaneous in some areas, but that will come with time and.....practice. Tons of practice!

Good job overall.

thanks for the feedback - white borders may have been a better choice - I think I was in a mignola mood when I did the border treatments, but what works for him doesnt work for me, seeing as he has much more black in his compositions than I (also hes brilliant). I am by no means a master at painting and all I do is practice and practice - when I get some more stuff up ill be sure to post it - thanks again for your time.

I really dig you clean watercolor style. It shows that you have excellent control and a good eye. I especially like the cover of you comic "Me and the Devil". The compisiotn is brilliant and I really like the colors.

I agree with the others about the black gutters. They do stifle your brilliant watercolor and if they were whit it would look loads better.

All in all though these are all amazing pieces. Well Done!!!
