Hey guys and gals!
I'm the guy who draws Mad Dog!
For those of you who read it, and for those of you who don't I could use your help.
I need your opinions on my word bubbles.
Do you like them? Do you think I should switch to the more industry standard round word bubbles?
Or maybe the same word bubbles but with better line work?
Here's an example of my word bubbles from my latest issue, Let me know your thoughts to help me imporve my style! I'd really appreciate it!
Oh, and if you have any other opinions on my art style, aside from word bubbles, please feel free to let me know. Anything I could work on that maybe I'm not noticing? Thanks!!
The name's Looey Q, I draws what I likes and I likes what I drew!
I'd use a thicker stroke, personally... And there are some areas where the bubbles feel constricted around the text... I'm not sure if I'd change it to standard, but there is something to be said for standard... We use rounded rectangles right now, but I think that any future project is going to use the elliptical ones.
In a world of intelligent, human-looking zombies, their only hope might be the one human they didn't "Enlighten".
Well, they're a bit crowded. There's not much white space, the bubbles are wobbly instead of smooth, and there's a lot of text. None of these is a problem on their own, but each of them makes things a bit more crowded.
I recommend trying to reduce the amount of text per comic, and to increase the white space between the text and the edge of the balloon. Wobbly balloons are a style choice which fit this style of comic, though, so I'd probably keep them.
We confess to being somewhat old school, ascribing a different meaning to each type of balloon or panel border, according to time honoured traditions. As such, these balloons would suggest to us either wraith like entities, or characters of a very advanced age.
We would suggest a more traditional approach and feel it would sit better with the fine quality of cartoonship on display here.
