swamp:black and white...speeds up the process a lot.


Personally, I have to disagree with that, unless it's detailed painting (as you said later in your post, it depends). When I do color work for page swaps or exchanges, I'm much, much faster. Because when I envision green, I pick green. When I'm restricted to greyscale, it's a LOT less forgiving and I have to work harder to get things to pop, as you mentioned. But if someone's got a talent/eye for greyscale, they may say the opposite of me.

I don't think color or greyscale is more or less attractive though--if either is done well, I'm drawn in. As in, I'd pick a well executed black and white comic over a bad color one. That being said, I find color a bit more forgiving to read for the reasons you mentioned--it's easy to define things without losing focus in a muddled mess of black and white. If you're ever curious, take your (or your fave artist's) colored work and make it greyscale, and see how it might not pop as well as it did in color.

Man I REALLY wish I could join in on this, Serpy! I love participating in your exchanges <3 But I'm gonna be pretty busy during the drawing phase and don't want to commit to something I can't deliver on -__- Looking forward to it though!

Jean_Q_Citizen:Allison Mack could play Alvery


Holy shit that actually looks spot on O.O Smile and all!

EDIT: Xailenrath yours too! Love the references :)

I took a stab at mine as well...purely image based, no idea how well some of these kids act. And Kat gets two actresses, because either could work :)

I don't think it's cheating at all, because you are not stealing someone's work and presenting it as your own, nor are you saying "look at what I drew!" when you actually 3D modeled it. A lot of artistic industries use shortcuts or even stock images, sounds, etc (think of how much stock footage goes into movies) but people won't call it cheating because they credit the appropriate programs and people.

And as MissElaney pointed out, if it's matching your skill on the things you do yourself, it's accepted. We no longer need to be convinced you've got the skill--we just want your final product and not take forever (look at George R.R. Martin....at this point people don't even care if he uses a ghost writer)

NiaNook mentioned this, but I actually made one of my characters left handed just because of the tendencies lefties have in personality (I basically said after making his character, "huh, he'd probably be left handed). Unfortunately in my character's case, it's all the negative trends of lefties...

I haven't seen another post in a while, is that all of them? Did everyone get a piece? :D

What a GREAT spin on the Halloween exchange, Jammy! Everyone did a great job!

Yay! It's started! I'm gonna have so much fun figuring out what movies people picked! (and if their idea of old movies makes me feel old O.O)

I mainly reply because it makes me a more active reader--I analyze more on the page, I think about plot events being connected, study the art for my own learning benefit, etc. And when I do that, I find I get more out of the reading experience than when I just glance. However, I will stop commenting if the author never replies, because I take that as a "Shut up and enjoy the story, dammit" signal.

For some authors I really enjoy conversations with them, and it's the only way to talk to them that isn't maybe a bit creepy? XD

CinemochaRK:example of Frost / Nixon


Thanks for the tips! I think I'll be studying this film to get a better idea :)

Thank you so much for the thoughtful critique! You hit the nail on the head in many cases, most of which I'm already working on/fixed in recent pages so it's good to know I'm putting my efforts in the right place! I did have one question for you regarding this:

CinemochaRK:
You seem to be going for a part Hunger Games, part X-Men vibe.

Two people talking politics in an office could totally work for something like Frost/Nixon or the OTHER House of Cards, but not so much for what I'm guessing is an action comic.


I find that the assumption of my comic is always this--superheros, action...nothing political other than the cause for the conflict. (You're right on the targeting of teens though...it is a coming of age comic) Which in one sense is good--I want to capture those types of readers who assume black and white and cheer for a revolutionary hero, only to hopefully make them realize the world isn't like that. But the core of the story about politics, and I need (or rather, think I need) to have a little piece of that in there/going on while the girls are introduced, so that when the real chess game is revealed chapters later, it doesn't come out of nowhere. So why not focus on the chess game right away? My thought was that if the reader got attached to the girls first, they'd care about the chess game later (because let's face it, if we didn't care about the characters the chess game in Game of Thrones would be boring since we aren't invested)

So do you have any tips for 1) setting up the right feel of the comic and 2) presenting the main antagonist--a politician--in a not "boring" way?

Much appreciated!

I'm looking at that panel and saying to myself, "If I hadn't seen the page yet, what would I think Ryder just found out?" And you know what I first thought?

Ryder's gonna be a dad!! XD

(sorry he just has that LOOK on his face! XD)

"I'll do a simple piece" I said. "A single frame but nicely drawn" I said. Well...maybe next time XD

Panels are finally inked and I'm on to the coloring phase--should have it to you soon!

Excited to see all the art in this one, and what movies people picked!

SunnySideUpSmile:Whoops.

Project Arc - Drama

This story is amazingly made. Intriguing characters, nice and clean artwork, and an interesting story - this comic has it all. :) Project arc has some dark moments & well written characters. Well worth a read.


Awwww thank you, Sunny! <3 I am not deserving of such kind words! But I am glad you enjoy it ^_^

Princess Chroma for Fantasy!

It's kinda my latest CF binge read obsession. If you liked Rainbow Brite and Sailor Moon as a kid, but grew up and realized they were cheezy and wished there was a sarcastic, humorous, action filled version for adults then you should read Princess Chroma. Wonderfully dark and complex moments sprinkled in there but such a fun read.

Since Galaxy Knights got skipped:

Nice dance club environment! And are they about to hook up? :D

For Charlie Down:

So nice to see an old school Sunday paper comic style! It's cute!


In Project Arc, I decided to spend some extra time on backgrounds! lol

Please critique my First Chapter!

Old (crappy) art, so I'm not really looking for that kind of critique. What I'm really looking for is a way to write a more interesting/engaging first chapter. I'll be doing a redraw eventually and would like to hear how to improve. It's in a weird format (two pages per "click") but 19 pages total.

Much thanks!
