Nyomi:Oh man, Leafa, I just checked it out to see how long it was, and when I saw it was only 15 pages I had to read it right then! Especially since I'd literally just finished the Art of Monsters.

I'm a bit afraid I don't have anything helpful critique-wise to say! I think it's lovely all around. The way you tell stories is something I admire- I sort of lack the ability to tell short stories, and the way you go about it is pretty amazing. I can also appreciate how you change your style to fit the tone of the story- and in particular the way you colored it gives it an amazing old-timey vibe I admire, and the watercolor backgrounds are... wow when they happen. The characters are likable- I was rooting for the kid all the way through, and I think that's always a good thing.

Overall, I really enjoyed it! I'm gonna need to check out the rest of your work later! :)


EEE Thank you! And I think what you've said is definitely helpful, because I've had mixed feelings about the comic and whether it was working. I'm particularly pleased you were rooting for the main character kid. He's never called by name in the comic, he spends most of his time going ":c" and it's taken until page 15 for him to actually speak, so he's a difficult protagonist.

Nyomi:Alright, first up is The Ward!



Anyway, Imp is next up! :D I'll get that out soon!


Just read this critique, thank you so much for putting the time and effort into it!

Not blurring the flames- hmm, I'll consider that.

There are a couple of 'rad' twists yet to be played in the comic, so, yeah! I'll try my best. Again, thanks!

Aaaa I’m glad I’ve been helpful so far guys! :)

Alright, I know I said Imp was next, but I need a little more time to read through Imp- it’s over 250 pages, and I want to be able to be thorough and not just “hey looks cool.” Whoo boy. Oh well, at least none of those 1000 pagers have commented yet… I think.
So, as it’s only 20 pages, I’m gonna do Blessed and Damned real quick.

HEY HEY HEY I'm back with the correct comic this time!
Imp!
Admittedly, this comic was so long I didn't bother taking notes, so you'll have to forgive me if anything is a little bit unspecific.


What's next? uhh...
Well, Gilded eyes is only a few pages long, so I'll do that one tomorrow and see if I have the time to do any more.

Wow! Thanks so much!

I have to say, though, your summary of my comic was kinda funny to me even if it is mostly accurate. Thanks for reading the whole thing, I know it was long.

If you could do Exiern someday. It's been through two owners, three writers, four artists, 11+ years, and 800+ pages (and counting) so anytime this year would be fine (or even the next.)

Interested to see opinions from as many people as possible as it's changed a lot in its (far from finished) lifetime and this can all help with where it's going next.

Nyomi:



Thank you very much for this review!

I'm very sorry about your loading time, never really considered that problem before. I'd hesitate before reducing the page size though, as I think it detracts too much from quality.
By the way, when I was reading web comics myself, with slow mobile internet, I'd simultaniously open several pages on different tabs to wait less (so I could read one page while the next page was loading). Really helped me.

And thank you for pointing that out especially

Nyomi:Richardo seems like his personality would get grating if he was constantly at the level he was at the end of the chapter, but I’ll assume he won’t be.

It's one of the biggest concerns when you make a character with flawed personality, they're a dick all thee time and it's never punished, it becomes annoying.

Nyomi:I actually remembered to click on the profile this time, and… well, the profile was blank. I’ve accomplished a whole lot. I’d recommend filling that out- sometimes, if I’m on the edge about reading a comic, I’ll read the profile to see if it’s interesting- and if I see it’s blank I don’t think I’d end up reading it.

Filling the profile is also a good thing to I suppose. I didn't bother with "marketing" parts too much since I can't update on a regular basis anyway yet (which may soon enough change, by the way).

Do you compress your comic pages at all? For example on Photoshop you can save comics through Export/Save for Web and if you fiddle with the various options you can reduce your file size dramatically without changing the visible quality or making the comic smaller.

If you want to do mine, that would be cool!

Although it is 140+ pages long, so I wouldn't be offended if you wait until later lol.

I think I'll throw my hat into the ring.

It's only about 30 pages atm. No rush, this is a hectic time of year as is so I'm not expecting a critique right away, haha.

It's perfectly fine for me now! I think the problem is fixed!

Also I'll add everyone to the list when I get on a computer! There might not be any critiques for around a week, but I'll get back on it after Friday! :)
