Looks like page 1 is done with all fine-line marker, and page 2 is done with a lot more brush. So it seems inconsistent for that reason. The fine-line marker gives a somewhat unreliable line, because of these fuzzy bulges in the extremities and fading in the longer strokes and lines. The panel borders are inconsistent and often transgressed, but I guess that's okay because you can fix it digitally, or with white paint. In page 2 panel 2, they look like stick figures, and page 2 panel 4, the shadow on the neck falls short of the jaw line, and mohawk suddenly grew sideburns, page 3 panel 3, perspective slightly off, page 3 panel 4, the hands need his body behind them, and page 4 panel 3, the nose looks misshapen, and those are signs you aren't giving it 100 percent effort. Tons of potential here, though you need a better pen and maybe better paper.

I like your drawings and characters. Good grasp of anatomy, and posing. Maybe need to mix it up with more body shapes and heights.

I'll have an extra spicy bloody mary or a dirty martini with extra feta-stuffed olives.

The drama and mystique of absinthe is good once in a great while.

Oh! I saw that movie, and today Howard Roark would be a terrorist for blowing up a building. Extremely unethical "philosophy," if you can call it that.

quoting a speech from a 70 year old movie

What movie was that?

There's a fascinating documentary series on YT, called Years of Living Dangerously. The first two episodes have Harrison Ford in a state of authentic righteous indignation over the corrupt use of vitally important rain forests in Indonesia. Plus a real-life Christian climate change scientist. (Highly recommended if you don't mind some Showtime pop-up ads.)

Did you want to bump an advertisement thread?

Shameless Ad Rules:
2. Don't make lots of ad threads. If you already have an ad thread, bump it instead.

3. Don't bump your thread more than four times a week or more often than you update. (Answering questions posted in thread is fine.)

Isn't the right-wing is just as capable of corrupt statism? The cash-grabbing corrupt politician, in the pocket of the corporate-run state, is using the Bible to promote liberty, promoting apocalypse to encourage gun sales with morbid fear-mongering and fetishism of scorched-earth Armageddon.

To use the bible to promote reckless use of the Earth, that's offensive to Christians who affirm the reality of climate change. Jesus said, "Give unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's." What if Caesar wants a better environment? Romans 13:1 "Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities."

Surely there's a more moderate option that regulates climate change without taking away some vague liberties, at least for the sake of future generations. Otherwise, both the left-wing and right-wing state will have nothing to govern (if we keep everything status quo).

If it's true that all scientists are liars, then doesn't it make more sense to aggressively conserve natural resources (as opposed to aggressively burning them up)?

If it's true that humankind has broken nature, then doesn't it make sense to take responsibility for it?

If it's true that climate change science is actually a covert political agenda to take away certain liberties, then what liberties are at stake? The freedom to burn up and contaminate natural resources, freedom to be irresponsible for the environment?

If we're being honest, several regulations already exist to curtail excessive greenhouse gas emissions, and to prevent fires, chemical dumping and garbage littering. Those were liberties that you don't even miss and did not need protected.

@Letter M, are you using the Simple Layout Editor? I think applecitrus' suggestion was meant for the prefab layout editor, where you get two source code windows, the bottom is titled "Editing the Layout CSS," and that's where you put those lines at the bottom, probably.

Though I don't have much experience in this area, here's my 2 cents:

For accessibility let's consider the entertainment experience we want to give. I imagine two alternative transcripts.

Option 1 (like a comic script).

Panel 1:
Hero on left and Heroine on right facing each other. Fear is on their faces.
Hero: We have to defeat Master Evil!
Heroine: I agree!

Option 2 (like a novella).

The hero and heroine face each other. Their eyes burn with fear.
"We have to defeat Master Evil!" said Hero.
"I agree!" replied Heroine.

So all this has to be in the transcript and somehow supply alt text for the comic image. The most feasible way to do this seems to be with and ARIA labels, like this:

<br />
&lt;img src=&quot;comic_image.png&quot; aria-labelledby=&quot;comic-label&quot;&gt;<br />
<br />
&lt;!--begin transcript --&gt;<br />
&lt;p id=&quot;comic-label&quot;&gt;The hero and heroine face each other ... &lt;/p&gt;<br />
&lt;!--end transcript --&gt;


Source: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Accessibility/HTML

According to Kyo:
By default, the transcript variable gets HTML escaped (so you wouldn't be able to use HTML tags in it), but if you use this:

[f:rawhtml|v:transcript]


It won't be escaped.

That's a good idea. I don't know who did this drawing, but it's an interesting example:

Maybe a good topic for a group practice thread, "Draw your character from every angle."

Energy consumption is increasing much faster than population growth. Ever notice how many 2 ton cars carry a single 200 pound person 1 mile to buy a 5 dollar lunch?

The reason human civilization exists isn't just because of inventions like writing and fuel-burning engines, it's also because of biodiversity. The great wisdom of plants and animals is how energy frugal they are.

RJDG14:My current problem is that I still struggle drawing my characters face-on,
[...]
Secondly, I need to continue working on poses and anatomy.


You're correct that sketching anatomy studies will improve your stylistic cartooning. I suggest taking life drawing classes. If that's not expedient enough, try some of those anatomy sketching sites.

www.posemaniacs.com

www.quickposes.com

Drawing hands and faces can be improved by seeing and drawing the negative space in addition to the figure contours. In other words, train your eye to see things in more than one way, like those optical illusions.

Also learn and memorize more standard anatomical proportions. Of course you can use whatever proportions you want for your stylized cartoons.

The only thing I can think of is stop whatever it was you've been doing and get up and take long walks to get your posture to normalize naturally.

And prolly maybe see a doctor.

Hope you get better.

From the layout reference:
[v:chapterlink]
Link to the comic archive page for the chapter that the displayed comic is part of.


I interpret this to mean that you have to make a special menu option targeting [v:chapterlink] and then Comic Fury will automatically generate a limited archive loop for that chapter alone when a visitor clicks on it.

So if you have 12 Chapters, it will always link to the chapter archive index for that specific page, not always the latest chapter, unless it's the latest pages. (Though I haven't tried it to be sure) Yeap, I tried it and it works pretty much like that.

Since [v:chapterlink] generates a unique URL for that chapter like "http://webomic.com/archive/22001", you can hard code that link into your menu whenever you create a new chapter.

Another thing you can do is rearrange your chapter order index. Since the lowest index will always be the first to display in the generic archive page, set the latest chapter to index 0, then you can use CSS to hide all the rest of the rows in the archive table. That might be a bad idea because some (if not most) readers like to be able to see the entire archive index.
