I like the little dachshund. Again a nice simple but expressive depiction of the dogs. Cute puppy. You should consider coloring these. I think it'sd enhance the look nicely. use flat colors maybe?
My own latest page is the last page of a 24-hour comic day comic I made a few years back. I moved the whole works to Comicfury today and plan to write a follow-up/ It's basically toilet humor. The angry muttering of an artist who's annoyed by how some people treat public restrooms put down to comic form. A cry for justice... The Porcelain Avenger!!!
Like the weener dog. though I find the idea of something sighting in a dog with crosshairs disturbing. Don't kill the normal pup please. Like the very crisp representational style of the little dog. I think this comic might benefit from color though given the cartoonish feel. Please don't kill the non-cyborg dog off. Hate seeing dogs killed. Old Yeller sucked.
My own latest is an update to the Knave's End strip. gona be getting back to it when time allows but for now preparing a cover for zinefest for it. That's what I have. Simple cover no frills. No foil wrap or dye-cutting. Just Neville the hobbit beating the hell out of a goblin. Knave's End Cover
I like the colors, very crisp. I assume added by computer? The fonts pretty nice too. I tried using fonts myself in a few comics but never really settled on a good one. I assume the hero is in some sort of limbo, it's a strange-looking place. the shadowy guide has a mildly sinister aspect a bout it but might be more so with a deeper grey tone.
My latest page is a prospective cover for the first mini-comic collection I'll be printing for the twin cities area Zinefest. Has the hero ascending a flight of stairs in full glorious color but with plenty of shadow... Samwise Pinup
Interesting bit of back-story. One change I'd make in the lower right panel, a typo really but once in a while the has-been English major in me notices these things; shipped is spelled with two Ps. Like the faded shading under the hat in the second panel but maybe it's not quite dark enough to hide the left eye totally. Might be cool to use that technique more below hat brims though as it gives it a nice dash of spatial feel in a more traditionally flat-colored strip, but that's just my thoughts.
Edit: commented on link above but clicked a reply to a comment. Oops. Went back and looked at the last page actually awaiting comment. Strong use of black and white, politically charged on a mild level. Liked the irony of mentioning the country was polluted while hopping a ride with pitch-colored exhaust fumes in full view.
Gonna leave the other comment as well. Great colors. Something about the artowrk makes me think kinda a mashup of Charles Schultz and Jim Davis. The idea that they have some alien cat but excitement still involves video games speaks to the slacker in the reading audience. Like the facial expressions. Donesimply and effectively without resorting to the anime style. Very all-American looney toonish.
My own latest entry into the Samwise Spade saga is another few digs at myself as a cartoonist and more opportunity for the titular character to showcase his inner little jerk. Samwise Spade: Patron of the Arts
Great line work, the confrontation seemed well made, awkward and angry. Not familiar enough with the story to know all the details. Seems interesting that the other woman at the end wants to discuss the body of the one in the foreground. Liking the subtle shading. Not much for variation in tone, I think I noticed about three grades, but used in a very effective and neat way. Like it alot.
Here'sthe latest page in Samwise Spade's current investigation. We get to see what exactly the first-time crime scene artist was working on that got Samwise so amused in the last page. I think Lieutenant Kiernan is less amused by it. The Crime Scene Sketch
Thats a mean girl's mean girl. Like the art style. Kinda Peanuts meets Anime. Bery expressive. The script seems good from what I've seen. Though how one of the others might see this girl as a friend may require major suspension of disbelief. Like the colors.
My own comic updates with a long-awaited look at the murder scene. I'm still tweaking my colors and kinda preferring a more faded look overall to sheer black and white and grayscale. Still interrupted by a few solid colors though. Samwise Spade and the Murderous Melody
Not entirely sure how one can follow that up for show and tell. That kid just became the coolest grade-schooler ever I bet. Great art, love the lines and love the colors. Very crisp and expressive. The excitement on the kids face is easy to read.
Mine is just the latest page in my Samwise Spade Halfling Dick For Hire series. I'm still working on making that balance of Black and White and color and perhaps colorized classic film sort of feel to it. anyhow here's the link. Samwise latest page
thanks for the imput. Yeah I'm trying to hit a good balance in the color scheme. I want to kinda keep an old movie-esque look with it but also keep it odd. I always liked spare bits of color in otherwise black and white pics. as to the hand-writing. Yeah that's all me. I have used text in other comics but they always seem to inorganic. ON the other hand I readily admit my hand lettering needs some major work. I've never had a hand for writing but something I'm trying to work on. Thanks.
A mouse (who looks somewhat Harrison Fordy) watching a boxful of kittens. Nicely drawn and an interesting premise. I love greys in comics so good work there. I like it very much. The funny animals are nicely rendered in this strip and the backgrounds are great. I never do them well myself...
In my latest page Samwise gets a quick look at the corpse only to be confronted by a flatfoot who doesn't have much good to say about the little PI.
A plea for freedom and what appears to be some sort of crazy old man as a captor warning the captive about some force that can attack him outside. I love the crisp lines and smooth solid colors, all angles and strong shapes. Think I'd need more to go on to really understand what was happening, so might have to pop back and read up on the comic before this installment. Like it so far.
My own latest page shows how the rare trip outside in the daytime forces a change in perspective on the surly diminutive detective. I hope the sudden appearance of more color then usual works to convey that. Samwise Spade: Morning People
I'm always impressed by digitally produced art. I can't even color my crap with a computer, and here's these almost human-looking characters who even have textured skin and hair. The rotating angle around a pose that only changes subtly is a nice touch I think it kinda establishes the relationship of the two characters in the panels. Very nicely done. The dialogue seems a bit content-heavy at a couple points, but that's all part of the medium I think. Very eye-catching and not as stiff as most digital art I see out there. Much more organic.
My latest page in my new webcomic follows Samwise Spade into an improptu meeting with a prospective client. Samwise Spade For Hire!
The dwarf in the above page certainly seems to have a bent towards swashbucklery. Gonna have to read up and try to figure out what led to the confrontation with the big red critter. Seems dangerous. Fantasy comic. Cool beans!
Page I'm gonna share is the first entry to my spin-off from the "Knave's End" series, "Samwise Spade, Halfling Dick." Or for those who might be fans of old redio... "Samwise Spade, For Hire!" Basically a cover for what will be one of the big storylines soon. A teaser for it has been submitted for consideration for entry into an anthology but we'll see how or if that goes. The actual story will be a bit more fleshed out then the short setup. anyhow here's the link. Sure, I'm Samwise Spade, For Hire!!!
A few pics featuring my Halfling Barbarian/Ranger, Neville the Seventeenth e was originally a throw-away PC I rolled up in Neverwinter Nights on a server wherein my characters weren't lasting til second level, but he managed to thrive until fifth. I've since played variations on this character in several PnP and online games, and made him a major character in my webcomic, "Knave's End." My style has evolved a bit over time so he looks a bit different from pic to pic.
Kinda disturbing getting some sort of plier caught in her throat while trying to eat something but I like a good D&D style fantasy strip and those looked like orcs so I'l likely go back and have a look at the rest of the strip. Looks good.
BTW here's the latest page from my D&D style strip. The search party has reached the cave and is directed into it by Boblin the goblin mutt. Caverns arc page 24
