Thanks guys for the critique! :B

I can see where you guys you are coming from with my scratchy lines and lack of tones and such. D: This was actually an experimental style for me. I just wanted to try something new. I also wanted to use this style, because it was, I guess, a quicker way to get my comics done. (oh and the tones, well...I DID have them on my first few pages, but I had to take them out, b/c I had to finish up and didn't have time to get it done on the last few pages--should I be admitting this? T-T )

I really wanna say more, but I think I'm gonna start running off into another topic, so I'll stop. T-T Thanks again guys! :)

qtr, the lines & letters were looking better in this than your last. far less pixels & scratchiness going on. but the lack of backgrounds & the really loose anatomy gave me trouble getting into this. you really ought to find a method of working & a workflow that works for you & stick with it.

pigeon, you know how to draw, & the scratchy thing is cool, but i think you need to get a better handle on it. I'm guessing you basically marquee select an area & just run a brush tool back & forth till it's looking full enough, right? but really, if you're doing that to every element, things are going to get muddied & you're going to lose things into the background. my suggestion is if you're going to go that route, try varying the angles even more, & change the thickness, or hell, add just a touch of color & give that a try. and if it's a bg, don't be afraid to completely fill black. the panel at the bottom of the third page is a great example because while the shadows around them are pretty solid around them while the angle of their scratchiness is almost 90 degrees different. the characters really stand out. More like that.

QTR Sik is a great character, I hope you'll keep it coming with the comics.

Pigeon, the issue I have with your art is that at times it seems to make it very difficult for certain images to stand out.  I see that you tried to have the lines going in different directions (the background versus Sherry's hair for example) but there's such a feeling of sameness that it detracts somehow.  Don't get me wrong I like the sketchiness, it has a feeling of static or white noise which gives a great ambience to this creepy sorta storytelling.  Page 3, you put a gray border around the hooks which worked out well in this regard.  Maybe you need something like that more often, or to just fade the background a little more around the characters (Kinda like One Piece does) or better yet, try the screentones like Jax suggested.

I really liked both stories.  Sorry you couldn't finish qtr. I thought this one came out very well. Is Sik's boyfriend a jackalope? That's cool. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more from you.

PigeonStar- Great job! I loved Sik sneaking up on people, that crazy stare, the creepiness. I also like the graphic style you used. Very good job.

I really should go back to traditional style eh? I keep bouncing around styles, programs,
it's really hard deciding what looks good and sticks... timing to finish it has been the hardest part, but I figure if I keep at it I will.
I spend alot of time this past week around comic artists @ noise pop, and visiting indie comic store. Getting the feel for styles out there..
Coming up with a story is the easy part I find, it's just the expressing it visually (and not just a single art piece) that I can't seem to
wrap myself around. I will finish this one though...
Pigeon- really blew me away with how you captured Sik here, and I'm really enjoying other interpretations of my character along with
seeing the variety of comic styles on this sight.  I get a feeling Sik wasn't truely fooled by Sherry's guise, and that's why she almost phased
into her killer mode, but it's cool that you don't really know for certain. The slight of hand very appropriate.
As for the scratchy shading, I liked it with some pages where it seemed to be expressing a mood, but not with others. (page 6 mostly)
I am really happy we battled.
"creepy horse is watching you" hehehhe. awesome.

what is it with detectives and unicorns? (hehe... ya i'm a geek)

Alright, I am home now! I got a lot of comics to comment on :x

Pigeon - Like I said before, badass, I need to fight you some day. Personally I really like the scratchy style, it's just so pleasing to me visually. However I -am- curious to see what it would look like with solid blacks and maybe some tones sometime, so perhaps that may be something to try? If not I really like what you've got going on here anyway. More BG work would probably be cool too I guess, but damn your first fight is nice :D

QTR - Ah, its a shame that you didn't have a chance to finish this!

I will forever have that last panel engraved into my brain. Oh god... it's in the window...

Good comic Pigeon!

Sorry you didn't finish QTR, I was interested in where it was going

Yay for my first battle! XD; I'm glad everyone likes it so far! Yeah, I had fun drawing Sik (I love drawing cool characters)!

Runic: XDDD; Yeah, I just had to put that pun in there. lolol (and it was almost by accident too--I original had it as "sick," but then I was like, "Hey, the other spelling will be better!" XD;  )

QTRNevermore: Yay! Glad you put your comic up, even if it wasn't complete! Having something is better than nothing!
I personally wanted to see your traditional pen style (and I think it suits you better!), but what you have is okay! I think you also changed POVs a little bit in the middle there (I wanna know more about Sik! :D ). I guess I can't say much right now since it's not finished, but I hope you do finish it! Link me if you ever decide to get it done! :)

qtnevermore: It's a pity you weren't able to finish, this looked like disturbing fun.

Pigeonstar: Sik is a very unsettling creature and you captured that PERFECTLY XD I think that was my favorite part of your comic. I would reconsider the scratchy black filling in future comics.

Nevermore- loved that furry love scene man, but i'm sad for the missing pages  ( i know i know, lack of time it's a B!+ch )...anyway, your comic shows us a little bit more about Sik.

PigeonStar- Man, I'm really hooked to your art style, and the storyline is nice too...I don't have much to say besides Cool Stuff!!

Woah.

qtr - A creepy unfinished entry no doubt. I kind of cringed when you described what was going to happen. Sik was going to convinced Sherry into uh.. suspension? I have a friend that's into this sort of thing and well. That takes A LOT OF CONVINCING to do! Hah! *Shivers*
It's quite a shame you didn't finish.. I wonder how you would have pulled that off drawing-wise.

Pigeon - I am a fan of your work. You handled Sik well! I'm glad that Sherry didn't really phase into her alternate form but came close to it. I love the story and the pacing. I want more!
Excellent pun at the end there! Oh ho ho!
