Damn that's good. Your cartooning is so evocative and there's such a good sense of motion. It's well inked with lots of professional looking line variation. I also enjoy your character designs and ability to tell your story (or at least this scene) without dialogue.


Heyo, so this week is not a new page but then again, it's still a comic I'm proud of. That said, I totally redesigned my comic page today. It's the first time I've not used a full template but created my own look, and i would love to get some opinions. Here's what it looked like yesterday Old comic and here's the new version new comic

I like your style of dialogue a lot. It's naturalistic and evocative and the characters feel like they are actually conversing instead of reading a script.

My latest comic (click on banner) is a rumination on the forty hour a week factory job I work in the summer. I did it with paper cutouts and am really proud of the effect.

This is in fact shameless advertisement. My latest comic is done primarily in paper cutouts (with a little photo edition to make them look less faded) and I would love to get some opinions. That said, I would also like to hear if anyone has any of their comics (or comics they have read) that are made with non traditional (i.e. not ink and pencils) materials they'd like to share.

So, as so many of us do, I took a 2D design class. For my final project I was allowed to do basically whatever I want, so I made this paper cutout comic of an Aesop's fable. It's larger than it looks, but I am really pleased with how it turned out.

Raymond_Binger:@Eloim Meth

I love the suspenseful, dark look of your story, don't entirely know whats going on yet, but it leaves me wanting more. Great work.

Today on "Alya The Last Child of Light," Alya has lost her cool as Lucidius tries to calm her down, but she may be more than he can handle.


Oh Man, your line work and sense of motion is amazing. Also I admire your detailed yet streamlined character design; it's hard to strike that balance between personality and readability if that makes any sense.

"Explanation" I return from a long hiatus and am playing around with color and being neurotic.

A-man:Oh yeah, I am good at navigating these things. It helps to begin with the supposition that you hate everything.
You say that now, but give it a year or two.

Trust me.

You'll find rather quickly that you love everything.
love. eeeeeeeeeeeeverything.


Well, I don't like to brag, but I recently quit playing Terraria.

Doomy:Oh welcome back to CF, A-man.

Poor guy, you're gonna get sucked into this abysmal vortex we call the CF Forums.

Hope you have come prepared.

Hello comicfury, I don't know who is still around from when I was a regular a few years back, but I have been considering starting my comic again and, whether that happens or not, I'd love to get to know everyone on here and possible get some feedback about more recent projects.

Anyhow, as far as introductions go, I am a 19 year old art/mathematics student at a liberal arts school of which I am not particularly fond. I still love comics and read comics a lot. It's interesting liking comics at a liberal arts school because something you have liked casually for years seems to take on a pretentious bent I'm not sure I approve of (but that's a whole separate conversation).

So again, hello everyone, please take a look at my comic, and hopefully I'll get to know the site and community again fast.

I've always wanted to make comics (I own about seven different books on making comics), but the idea was always incredibly intimidating to me because I am not a great artist. Then one summer I read through "Making Comics" by Scott McCloud which highlighted the parts of comic making that have always intrigued me (the lack of limitations on your scope, the ability to represent the passage of time, symbolism, etc.) and became convinced that I needed to try making a comic. It was at this time that I was a hopeless teenager (still am, but it's almost over...I hope) with a crush and was making these horrible stick men diary entries about being shy and confused.

The two ideas just sort of fit together nicely into a stick-men comic that managed to express some details of my life in a way that makes me really happy. I like the idea that a comic can represent, by mixing art and prose, something that I could never quite express with either. If I can represent an idea or mood on paper, I feel like I can understand it a little better or at least document it to think about later. Anyhow, that's probably a bit pretentious sounding for a guy who never updates a stick-man comic, but this is a really cool thread and I am enjoying reading it.

So, I am not exactly new here, but over the last two years I've been around really rarely because of school, work, and life. That said, I have returned and will hopefully have more than a single new comic to show for it. Also, I sort of love this type of thread (seeing what people look like is very cool). So here's me!

Welcome to the site, I hope you enjoy it here. And as you will gather from my comic and many others, you don't need to be much of an artist to make a comic.

Lee V.:I just realized I never introduced myself, so:

Hi, I'm Lee. You may or may not have seen me commenting on/subscribing to your webcomic.

Feel free to check out my new comic if you want, but no pressure.

And that's pretty much all I have to say.


I personally have not seen you commenting nor subscribing to my comic. For shame Lee, for shame.

Haha, but yeah, I will be sure to check yours out immediately.

So here's a sort of interesting thing I've been pondering. One of my personal comic-making heroes is Bill Watterson (for whoever doesn't know, he created"Calvin and Hobbes"), and I've always found his decision not to merchandize very interesting. He doesn't only avoid the tacky stuff like stuffed animals, cartoon series, and greeting cards, he has completely avoided all merchandise excepting books (no calendars, mugs, t-shirts, etc.).

I have always had a huge amount of respect for his position, but in thinking about it recently, I've wondered what I would do under similar circumstances. Sure I wouldn't want to bastardize my creation, but what about merchandizing it just enough to make some extra money? Is there a dollar amount that should make anything go?

It's of course all abstract as you have to make it really big for this to matter, but what do you think? What would you do?

Hello everybody; I know mine isn't a comic many people probably remember, but I have just, after two semesters of business, restarted "State of A" and would love for you to check it out. I hopefully will be updating more regularly over the summer. Click the banner link to go to my first new comic!
