So much talent and yet so little idea about the comic process work. First off I highly suggest you don’t delete this. I’ve been looking at this comic for awhile now and I’m going to offer some tips for the trade. Also, I’m NOT A TROLL I detest them myself but I’m also a pretty harsh reviewer to boot. So I’ll try not to sound too harsh but I can’t promise anything.

I’ll start with the good. The comic is nice and original your doing something different within the sea of boy/girl/ pixel comics that are flooding smackjeeves like some teenage girl’s fantasy of two men fucking. Or that special kid that won’t fuck off with halo and mega man. So you good get good points there. Also, the cast is a bit color if adbit crazy but colorful none the less. The art I like it but it could be better. But might I add my two cents.

It looks a lot like you're forcing the lines out with references and stuff. The faces don't look natural and sometimes quite oblong. I think, before posting stuff online, you should improve greatly.

I'm not saying you're a bad artist. I'm saying you have the potential of getting a lot better. Your lines are quite messy and the attempted shading techniques are quite elementary. I think you have a lot to learn before attempting comics and stuff.

-one of the biggest recomendations I can make to you is to be more patient in your drawins. Plan them out first- if you tend to start out with an eye or hair, you'll more than likely end up with skewed proportions. Sketch out the drawing, then add features, ink over it, and erase the pencil.

-Another thing I noticed was strange anatomy. Your figures seem vertically challenged and rather scrunched- there's nothing wrong with this, really, an it's pretty unique, but the positioning and oddness of the shape makes it look more accidental than intentional.

-Also- some of your papers look a bit dirty and this distracts from the artwork. Clean paper and lines can make a world of difference.

-I know that sounded harsh, but I'm just trying to give you some constructive criticism here. I think you should learn to improve the anatomy first; there are several websites that show you how to draw a proportional face using circles and stuff. I improved greatly with those things. Keep it up!

Hopefully you not one of those artist who say “I know what needs to change thank you very much so fuck off.” Cause if you are then you won’t go far. Then you might as well act like a prick like Tim Buckly of control alt delete. He’s good but he sucks so much dick at story pacing and lining up punch lines.

Also, if you have any of those fan club twats (they know who I’m talking about) that just pop on and comment about the comic saying how they like movement and this and this. Tell them to stop trying to suck your balls through a straw. They aren’t offering any help.

Also, your process of comic making doesn’t seem to help the comic. I don’t know if it’s the markers or the printer but the lack of contrast is really killing the overall comic. I suggest you work in photoshop or you use a acid free sketch pad and some good inks. If your using high price copic markers then I highly suggest looking up a tutorial on how to use them. Cause it seems like your color’s bleed within each other.

You could also stand for an overall site make over as well. Use the fourms or find a friend good with coding and have them customize your site cause the site is an eye sore honestly.

He offers great tips but thing is are you going to listen to him or just be a twat?

I believe he has the right to mod his site as see fit but people like you running around yelling at him is what people on the 360 do and think it's funny to act like an asshole 90% of the time when you know in real life you'll get your teeth kicked in faster then you can say what mother f---.

However I do agree he needs to change some things but you guys are going abiut it the wrong way. But he does need to accept that people will bitch about things in life. But I give him props for not aiming the gun at you guys.

...If I was going to copy and paste advice, I would at least delete the original posted date...

^.^ Bwahaha! About time Rachel punched something, I'm glad it was Jase. ^.^ I think I see a little bit of blood in that spittle. ^.~

...Yes, I edited my post. I do believe others who posted after me said it much better than I did. ^.^ Thanks!

I smell the new hotness that is bitching.

Now I've been in the comic game for about 3 almost four years now. But you guys are taking the cake on bitching about this man's skills. I've known this dude since middle school and our skills have grown since then.

Plus we are unknown artists. We don't sit here trying to sell you merch and ignoring your cries about what could be better. We do what we can. He's trying to master the whore that is photoshop like myself. I've gotten better in the program but there's alot to learn from it.

I believe it was Jim Lee who said "An artist always wonder if what they have been created is good enough by there measure." or something like that.

Point is leave him alone and let him find his niche.

I don't who you are "Shadow Reviewer", but you have had enough trolling around despite the obvious I'm NOT A TROLL. Your comment is obvious copy and paste and stolen. Bad Artist? Bullshit, you cannot define art as good or bad, as a style that is unique to everyone. Just because YOU don't like it, doesn't mean you have to tell what style he has to do to make it right.

Another thing, your comment that has to drawn unknown 'Guest' within the same hour, within two minutes after your latest post, is also very suspicious. You need to stop being a bitch and try to mask yourself as a guest and come out, as REAL Artist don't hide their name or skill from others.

Since a mood has been set on this site I should break it. Hey Age, I'm re-working on that Guest comic.
