sorry i haven\'t had a chance to comment until now....

this was my first time using watercolors for a comic, and i was just starting to figure out what i was doing at the end.  you guys have give me a bunch of good tips, though, so i think i will definitely try this again in the future.  one thing no one mentioned was scanning...i didnt use great paper for this so the colors were already light and when i scanned them they got even lighter.  i messed around with the saturation, contrast, etc. a lot but i\'m sure i could have gotten better results.  anyone got any advice??

kon, that was cool.  i really liked your stylized take on bub, and the story was fun, too.  we should do this again sometime.

Massive Attack by Kon - Awsome creativity, but you kinna lost me throughout the comic. T_T really did enjoy the story line. Especially at the end with the collasping sewer tunnel.But do practice on keeping it a bit more cleaner.

Bub by garic - WOw...you just went all out and experimented on him. Damn...and even broke down his own reputation. Wonderful artwork. Keep it up.

i like your style, kon. but the splotchy shadows in this one bugged me a little. it was good but a little consistency in it would really make it rock harder.

garic, this was some of the best art i\'ve seen from you. but the story seemed a little flat to me. i don\'t even know why, but it didn\'t do much for me. i did dig the formating though. i liked that.

Kon: youre definately improving. I can see it both in your backgrounds(even tho they are few and far between) aswel as your characters.

Garlic: I like your style, both in art and writing. I think it ended kinda abrupt tho. But maybe that was the intention. Like an x-files episode.

Kon, um I tried to read this but I had no idea what was going on. I would suggest you try to do the regular rectangle boxes with regular gutter space.  At least until you can make easily understandable panels. I would also start using perspective on your backgrounds instead of just faking them. I would just suggest simplifying everything, even your stories. I really like your characters, but watch out, you are kind of giving them all the same shape face.

Garic, these colors are getting waaay to muddy. I like all the energy you have, but it kind of comes out like a jumbled mess. I would suggest contrasting characters and backgrounds more as well as using perspective.

kons, you have a really neat style developing their. take some time to go do some life studies so you can even better convey what you want with that style: your \'shading\' is all over place and doesn\'t really have a set light source all the time which is confusing to my eyes, they dont know where to look. learn to use the black to FOCUS on things as well as add depth. really cute comic haha swallow was really cute and herself and loyal was creepy as hell. VERY NICE WORK.

garic, those are really pretty illustrations, the figures are simple but convey a lot of energy and mood. great watercolors also, just keep it tighter next time, i know they are hella hard to control but if you don\'t it ends up looking sloppy and muddy. and even though your people are heavily stylized, you could still use some life studies to get your proportions right, they are a smidgen off. also same as i said to kon, use blacks to focus on things (which you did a lot of the time) but i seemed like you were relying on the colors too much and it got a bit unfocused with unfinished drawings like on page 7. but lovely comic, is was very pretty.

good JOB, boys

Kon- Pretty nice stuff. I loved the part where Pothole comes out for some reason. The story was still a little confusing, but I understood where you were going with it. Your art is definitely improving as well, and I can see some style changing a little bit in this battle. One thing you should do more is do more backgrounds... more complete ones. I see you doing some stuff to create dimensionality, but you need to make a full background instead of adding a couple things. Here\'s a challenge for you- cut down your pages by half, but double your quality. I think if you\'d spend more time on each individual page, your story would flow a lot better and look a lot better. Good stuff though, bud; I\'m eager to see what your next battle will be, and to keep watching you improve.

Garic- Not bad. I think it had a nice narrative. Clean up the text some more, like Angie said. One thing you should do is work on your lines some more next time. For a couple panels, the only thing that held it together was your nice colors, so if you work on your actual lines a bit more, it\'ll keep me interested a lot more. Really nice colors though, they didn\'t overpower your lines or anything like that, which I sometimes do. Yeah, so just clean up the text, and work on making some more interesting, developed, and detailed lines, and you\'ll be golden.

Kon-I\'m still have a hard time telling what\'s going on in your comics, but you are improving, you just have issues with your shadows getting confusing. I knew what was going on in the first 9 pages but after that the action gets really confusing. I think all the closeups are what is hurting you. In comics you can\'t really show a closeup of an action happening to a person and us expect to know what\'s going on. Try to pull the camera out so it\'s more clear what\'s going on. I think my biggest complaint is Bub looks like MA, they both have the same facial structure and features for the most part. Be careful with your text, it\'s kind of all over the place, try to better center it in the bubble so it looks more professional. Other than that you\'re getting better so keep working, it\'s paying off

Garic-As of late I\'ve had a hard time understanding your stuff because of the crazy brush inks, but this time around I understood what was going on. (obviously you used different supplies here) I think the color looked very nice and you still managed to make stuff clear while working expressively. I really like the approach you took on the story, it was really unexpected. I enjoyed the interaction between the two \"narrators\". My only suggestion for you is to clean up the text a little more. I can read it okay but try to erase those pencil lines and try not to let the paints bleed into the dialogue boxes. Putting masking tape on top of the boxes as you paint would help you from accidentally getting paint into the boxes. Other than that I really enjoyed your comic, keep it up dude

Okay garic. That totally made me lost my pants. From the colors to the plot, that was just too awesome. SERIOUSLY. I don\'t mind if I loose now, you totally kicked my little lazy ass and made this so good. I loved the story, everything about the operation and all. WOA.

I\'m definetly going to read all your stuff.

Also sorry for my lame entry compared to yours, hope you\'ll still like it.

Kon: I fell the energy on your lines so strong... but most of the time I get lost on it! Maybe you should give a better balance on your black shades, sometimes (like the faces) they\'re just way too much, my eyes go @_@ and I don\'t know what to look at. If that was your intention, congrats and I shut up forever!

In a second read I was able to catch up tough, and i liked what I saw ha ha Your plots always intrigue me.

Garic: i dunno why, but your watercolors touched my heart, I can\'t get sick of looking at those pages, I guess it was your color usage that made me all emo ha ha ha I like the horizontal paneling, guess that\'s the combo that made me all awwwww

Props to both of you!
