Most Canadian cartoons in general. Like there's a treasure trove of interesting ideas that are undermined by really shitty flash animation and bad writing. One such offender was this kinda obscure Canadian (Toronto) about a person who can merge the DNA of two beings into one thing. Like in premise this should sound cool if it weren't for the fact the is kinda...meh? Like super meh as heck...

TheStrangerous:Think of this that way: How much of a troublemakin' outlaw you were in the past? How many enemies did you make?

I sure was a menace in countless fandoms, like one time defending a berated installment, mocking others as "unpleased entitled fanbrats". Funny enough, I realized I ain't enjoying the same installment I used to defend, many years later...



I was banned by 10 discord servers a few years ago for being a bitch. Who isn't to say this won't happen again?

I've got that tolerance limit and it's best I start from scratch.

(also no I'm not gonna call myself Bob, hello Bob was a webcomic I made several years ago which....and again I hate to be such an art crtic...charming...but crude)

I wanted to reboot under a new alias as means to show I could change. But changing quickly isn't as convincing as changing slowly.

whelp the reason is that i complain too much about my art suking while unirnically being perplexed by folks "with less artistic skill" making webcomics. naturally i feel ashamed about that and i wanna just leave that baggage behind me. along with a lot of dead comics under my belt and the same "woe is me" shit i use to do. this account won't be deleted but i might abandoned it and transfer rights to my new account. it's gonna be hard considering i feel like i haven't changed after all these years but it's worth a shot...

or just do the kyo change me user name method..and reboot hello bob while i'm at it.

Lt. Locust:I think it depends on the factors surrounding your reputation, only some of which are in your control. Sometimes the stars align and your initial post goes viral and trolls just steamroll you, especially if you react badly. They have so much fun, they keep track of you to try to provoke subsequent responses.

ie, I used to like reading BWW, the bad webcomics wiki. Not any of the more recent comic reviews - they all have the same repetitive edgy humour and mean-spirited takes - but the older reviews and the forum discussions. They had some really interesting points about how stories could be improved, how characters could have better arcs, etc.

But bww also has an area on their site where they collect angry responses from people who react to the bad reviews. If they know the real name, they post it. If they know subsequent work that person is doing, they also post it. (not sure if that's true any more)

Anyways, I guess it depends on which people on the internet are remembering your reputation and why. Especially among artists, I think there's honestly only a few things that could permanently damage your reputation (stealing or plagiarizing, for instance).




So I have a confession to make...am a member of the bad webcomics wiki forum, not officially considering I'm way too scared and kinda polite enough not to make a review but I'm mostly there to learn how not to make a bad comic.

But beside,can i make a new account? I'm not fan of the ewolf name I've been under and I've decided maybe it's best to start fresh. It won't get rid of the lying and whining reputation I have but it's a start...also cuz I legit idk how change my username apparently.

Merged Doublepost:

E-hero Vulven:As an artist, people will recognize your style. Unless, you can make your new identity's style different enough from your old one then it's only a matter of time before someone puts 2 and 2 together. That's internet magic for ya. I believe there's no obligation to apologize for posting a piece of art or hold an opinion on the internet unless a website's ToS says otherwise. You should be in the clear if you can keep your real life and internet reputations far from each other as possible. It's like having your very own superhero identity.




Is my style really that recognizable? I'm not trying to bring myself down again but it keeps on changing every once and while that it's hard to keep track of it.

On paper that sounds nice since I wanna break into doing nsfw but there are times where my art still remains the same no matter how hard I try. Also, my rendering skills could use some work.

TheStrangerous:How my animal characters don't look like Disney knock-offs, and how manly(beastly) it looks.



Happy for that. Nothing against folks who draw anhtro characters in a Disney style, but sometimes it might not fit inn alot of places. And looking at your banner alone, it looks pretty neat.

ShaRose49:What I like about my artwork (or at least, my more recent artwork) is, I guess the sincere expressions, the warm colours, and the sort of soft, kinda squishy texture, if that makes sense. I feel like it helps make the story feel lighter even though overall it is pretty dark (at least this episode is anyway). My art keeps changing rapidly though as I experiment, but I enjoy that, though I should probably think a little about consistency ;)


Merged Doublepost:



Your art is very good! I love the sort of softness to it, and it looks sophisticated and yet simple. Also that guy’s pretty good lookin’, just sayin’



Holy mackerel you've improved alot!

Merged Doublepost:

kv03:(Please no negative responses about your art in this thread! )
I'm working on making an avatar on myself, and one of my family members pointed out how my coloring is simple and goes well with the linework. Honestly thinking about it, It's become something that I like a lot about my artwork, alongside my line work.

(Heres an example thing from my commissions, please dont copy, trace or claim my work as your own lol )

What's something you like about your artwork? I'd like to know! I love seeing other artists' work. (Please keep the posts on this thread sfw)


I'm so jelly about that line work of yours. How did you get it.to look like that?

Idk what I like most about my art. I guess it's how depsite my expectations getting the best of me, with a few tweaks my set's pretty alright (if you wanna be general). Want I like the most however is my fondness for color and nice blend of anime and western influences (well mostly shows that trying to emulate anime never anime themselves)

HeSerpenty:To ewolf:
Sorry if this came off harsh but like..I'm hoping not to see more of this kind of stuff on the forums. I have nothing but good intentions, even with this tone ^__^;;;


jesus i need to stop saying this but this isn't harsh. to be harsh is to do a full on character assassination.


think we're at the point where we NEED to be harsh, because ewolf, you keep making these threads where you put yourself down, where you either vow to give up or work yourself to death with no resolves in between, and now you're outright putting down others with "less artistic skill."

You keep making these threads, we keep giving you advice, but you're trapped in this mindset that your work needs to be at its best to be valued, when in reality, our work never stops improving, our styles and work methods change overtime and we learn from experience. What we DON'T learn from is constantly criticizing ourselves to the point where we don't have the confidence to draw anymore.

We can give you tips, tricks, advice, but we can't give you self-confidence. That's something you need to work out for yourself. We can lead you to water, but there's not much else we can do when you don't drink it.

And, I agree, we all need to stop putting ourselves down. It's not only harmful to us, but to anyone who enjoys our work.


sorry for the artistic skill comment. i didn't know how to word it right without being egotistical about it. besides that point...am about to go to college soon. and knowing how busy my schedule is gonna be, it's a good opportunity to work faster cuz i can't just take my time during college. at most maybe for an hour before going to back to hit the books.

There's this weird feeling I get when think up a new exciting idea then overtime I start growing bored with it and moving on to a new idea...the cycle starting anew. That and I feel like Peter Molyneux when comes to over promising things. When it reaches that point, I realize I can't make it like that and move on to a new one. Big issue here is do it of the ideas have are too big. I literally can't think small, when I do it ends up a web comic begging to have its own site.

Right now I wanna do a 4 page story but I don't know how to condense it to just 4 pages...without having it turn into something much longer.

Like how do you even do it? How do you decide that despite not being professional, your able to meet for deadline when possible. I've seen folks with less ...I hate to be rude since you guy's astonishing shut way it is... Artistic skills manage to be devoted to their craft. Maybe I don't lack the drive and time to work on such a demanding hobby as despite my love of art...I much rather go to bed then finish a whole page in 24 hours or more.

(I hope I'm not talking up my ass with this one but)

I always love jokes that end on a twist when you least expect it. It always feels kind of fun wondering what's gonna happen next. Or not.

Or twist in general. I blame m night shaimlayian for this.

Another thing I like is the idea of transformation or changing. It could be just plain magical girl stuff or power rangers but also something super horrific. The very concept of turning into someone else has always been a fave of mine. Though, nowadays I kinda stopped doing The horrific or erotic take on transformation.


Horror or dark aesthetics but not The horror or dark tones. I just like The look of gothic horror and fashion as I naturally wanna get into it more once my hatred of taking things slow dies. Also, I will never be sick of vampires and werewolves but other monsters need love too. I fucking hate zombies through. They're only undead I hate. skeletons are way cooler anyway.


Heck, I love monsters in general whether they be good or evil though I much prefer to portray nonhumans as more neutral than just " ALL MONSTERS ARE EVIL AND MUST DIE!". I ain't no goblin slayer. I'm indifferent to aliens though considering I don't think extraterrestrials could exist. But knowing Th r vast nature of the universe, who knows, may be they are real.

Also, I tend to enjoy stories with lower to mid tier stakes for the most part. I don't mind save the world stories but once it reaches save the universe stories and characters are just dicking around doing nothing, that's when I drop your comic like hot cakes. Then again, I never cared about space operas and I perfer things to be "grounded" or just on earth or a simlar planet . I mostly like reading and wiritng speculative fiction along with future and cyberpunk stories.

and speaking of unorthodox sci fi, how about unorthodox fantasy with genres that are hard to pin down...or really just me saying... "What medieval europe but with Victorian decor and east asian myths" . I love worldbuilding and this is always fun. My favorite being my African inspired bug world setting.


Last but not least,

-3-5 character ensembles
-character motifs
-snarky know it all and serious straight man combo
-DIVERSITY! Can't get enough of that
-nerdy introverted dorks (who sometimes have a more suave sexy alter ego...this stop being a thing years ago)
-human and non human love
-biracial characters and interracial relationships
-different ideas of family
-monster of the week stories
-one liners
-Saturday morning cartoon vibes
-rule of cool as long as it's believable
-teenagers...just teenagers. There teen angst is fun to write.
-a few anime tropes I admit to liking like dere personalities....sans yandere, I fucking hate yanderes also cat people.

I'm wary of the sub model any thing and even if it's more convenient, titles in these services just vanish without second thought in time. It's why games like scott pilgrim end up unavailable due to right issues or rights laws. Not saying these services might fail but knowing Th r increasing loss of ownership over the years, I'm not pressing my luck. As a matter a fuck, piracy is rising as a result of more streaming services becoming available.

I actually use to use gimp some years ago with just a mouse and keyboard. Freedrawing on it can be quite hard at first and I found that doing paper sketches first then inking it digitally does wonders. Though once I did get a drawing tablet, I moved ship to medibang then finally csp. Not today gimp is bad, i've seen a lot of good art made in the program but you gotta tweak it a bit for art.

As much as it pains me to say it, kirta is a good option if you willing to work with it. I kinda gave up on it once the latest updates started treating my intuos like crap but maybe it might work for you. You won't regret it.

Shekets:Here's a work around: draw and ink pictures traditionally, scan them and then digitally color them using your intuos pro.
Coloring will help you get used to/more comfortable using your tablet. You're not drawing with it, so you don't need to be as precise with the pen in order to color it.
Also calibrate your tablet and play around with the pen settings. These can help a lot.


I personally don't ink traditionally anymore. they always end up looking off balance. It could work though.

whelp, me oldest brother said no on buying the cintiq 16 so i guess i'll buy it myself and no i couldn't find any used ones then again heat, hands covering screen are common concerns so nothing of value is lost. but at the same time am tore....i find it hard to get artwork done faster on a screenless tablet then i do paper sometimes...and i kinda have patience issues so there's that. hopefully i might earn enough money to afford one someday...but now..sometimes i wonder if it's even fucking possible with the the set up i have. the only work around is do traditional sketches first then redraw it over digitally.
