Good luck with the comic! Even though you've just started, I recommend that you zoom out on some panels so that there's more breathing room and everything looks less cramped/cluttered, and your text bubbles don't interrupt other panels by sticking into them as well if there's more space.

I don't know the slightest thing about Hogwarts but I'm still joining in on the fun :'3c He's muggle-born, and very quiet. Has very few friends in the academy, but that's fine with him! His familiar is a worm, no one really knows how it's still alive tbh.

Giving up on returning to his previous life and family, Niles takes up a new goal to make up for his desolation: To make others happy!
He's never completely satisfied, but that's not a problem if others certainly are!
His monster half is still there, but controlled, suppressed, and rarely seen.

If I may throw in my own two cents as well, shapes are your friend! You go for the lanky, thin rectangle shape alot, and in your recent sketches the only changes would be the emphasis of a large upper body. But even then, two of the three sketches show very similar body types, down to their muscles/abs.

I'd recommend fooling around with any particular body shapes you had imagined for your characters, perhaps experiment with even making them not thin as you typically do with your characters. But regardless, good luck yo.

I know I've already said this on the Discord server, but you've got some bombass content and a fantastic style here! Count me already interested in what you'll bring to the table with this possible character.
Since there's a lot you're currently holding back on sharing, as you've said, it's personally difficult to formulate what to put critique into. At least, I hope to see some color in the updated reference seeing as how even your pieces provided in the timeline lack any coloring aside from gray-scale.

Nevertheless, welcome to Void homie! Hope ya' have fun here!! :Dc (Also, definitely putting ya' on my hit list once you get in >:D)

Guess who's throwin' in another character sometime down the line, once I get more comics done?? This dude lmao
Please excuse the resizing issues for this reference here :'D I'll tidy it up possibly and redo it later once I make the full reference, but this is all I wanted to share so far.

Her name is Ash, just Ash, and she's a monster who conveniently has a human form that she uses to look nice and match the rest of the crowd. Doesn't show her actual face often, very rarely does she do it and only if she trusts someone enough.
Day time she likes to do fun stuff like singing, dancing (Hip-hop!), musical theatre, etc. etc. Brash, sociable, and bold, she actually makes a pretty good friend and is excellent to talk to. Romantically only interested in women and is polyam, but isn't shy to physical relationships with anyone regardless of their gender. Might hit on you because she's just that casual.
Nighttime she's an underground half human-half monster fighter, doesn't really care about winning or losing (But she does enjoy the former), as long as the role is played and she gets to go home afterwards. She's only so far from being distinctly feral, a carnivore only eats meat. Be it people or animals, she needs the flesh and the hunt, and fighting provides her that typically.

Throwin' in good ol' Niles here!
A ghost of his former self, much more quiet and submissive. But warms up to any and all humans very quickly.
Needs more limbs.

Sadly I'm so wrapped up in my schoolwork that I don't have the time to really participate in any comic production BUT I have the time to do misc. art and such! So hopefully I can just use this thread to make up for lost time, lol. Hope y'all like whatcha see n' stuff.

A lil' bit of my dear Saab, since I've been thinking about them alot and also the small answer to where their mouth even is! Their face just splits into three parts and there you go.

Aaaand one of the NPC's I whipped for my game, haha. Originally was gonna be my go-to character as a player, but DMin' had me cast them as a NPC instead. 

And to anyone who sees this, I'm hoping it'd be okay to some of y'alls characters? Like requests n' stuff? :> Just for funsies and such, and I'm a sucker for all of the characters on here lmao, so heyyyy...Hmu if I can just whip up a drawing of your character and I'll definitely get on that during my free time.

They're just gotta want the free food and small talk. Mostly food to take home.

Hi just gonna double post here because I'm working on my intro comic and just want to get some feedback before I work on these first two pages hahaaaaa....

I'm worried that their design as a monster is...Overbearing, and if so I'll switch to another character.
I don't think you need to switch to another character, maybe just simplify or clarify a little? My first reaction to the monster form is that he looks cool, but I'm a little confused. Are those super long teeth? How big is the mouth? Where exactly are the translucent fin things attached? Was this just a design you thought was cool or is it based on something? Maybe I'd work on your story a little because it's not really clear why he turned into a monster. I mean, making a more well defined story might help your design process a bit. Why does he transform? Does he hate it or does he embrace it? What are his goals? Ask yourself questions like that to flesh out your character.
But, your art is good so I'm looking forward to more! Just my thoughts.

I'm super happy you asked! I'm glad you like my art btw, haha. :DDc
To answer, I can definitely understand your confusion! The design is very...A finicky thing, honestly. The features of his general head area do appear as super long teeth, and a mouth, yes! But those parts are definitely not able to be utilized as such, and the location of his actual mouth is a mystery right now. The design was based off the scale worm, Eulagisca Gigantea! Although at this point the connection to that worm is pretty thin. I'd be happy to redo the reference so that I can make some things clearer!

I wasn't exactly sure if I could explain the whole transformation thing en' length, but the reason why he transforms is because in his story, he enters a completely different universe which included the existence of magic, none of which exists on Earth and etc.
Because he enters this universe, a completely new species (Human) which didn't gain entryway through methods natural, the magic of that universe creates a 'Balance' of sorts by gifting him this monster form so that he may be less of an outlier in an environment of non-humans. AKA "This thing is here, it shouldn't exist here but...Magic will make it work somehow."

His feelings on this ability are more or less indifferent! In the story, his environment is of monsters, the transformation is of no trouble to him because of how adjusted he is to living amongst those who are non-human. However, because some of his relationships throughout the story are...Not healthy, he perpetuates his monster self as a second chance at life, a way to live as someone else, who would always be better then him.
His goal in that story is to simply...Find out the science behind magic in that universe, discover how he got there alive, who did this to him, and how he is able to transform with seemingly no repercussions whatsoever, because it's intriguing! (And also he needs someone/something to blame for the current state of disarray he's in.)

I'll certainly think more on this and all!! Thank you for the questions/tips!! :>
