angieness:  I can completely understand why everyone else that's gone pro has left the site, but I'm trying to tough it out!

I am so glad that you're still around too because these are fun to read!

You would lose a lot of money then because I sketch everything out before laying down any inks! I would never draw straight onto the page haha I wouldn't doubt my coloring effects my BB work here. I'm on 4 ongoings (Peter Panzerfaust, Number 13, My Little Pony, Godzilla:Half Century War) but I also want to get these BBs out in a reasonable amount of time so I can't devote a massive amount of time to each page unfortunately.  I will continue to work hard to improve and put out quality comics, but I also want to get more than 1 comic out a year too!

Sucks to lose some quality for the sake of being able to get comics finished, but I just don't have it in me to spend more than a few months on one comic. It is the nature of juggling professional comic work and work done for fun, so alas my bills getting paid have to take priority. I can completely understand why everyone else that's gone pro has left the site, but I'm trying to tough it out!

Kudos to you for having such a high output! Although all this colour work seems to be effecting your BBs (although it's good that you are prioritising).

I would bet money that alot of this comic is drawn straight down onto the page, a lot of the images are very samey in terms of pose and head direction as well as seeming to lack an underlying skeleton. Your style doesn't help in this as it becomes quite curvy.

Another thing I've noticed is that you've kept away from the more daring panels, layouts and angles. I'd really like to see you mix it up a bit when it comes to layouts and angles.

I am super impressed at your output, but keep an eye on those things to get better works out in the future!

It was briefly touched on at the beginning to one of my comics forever ago, but pretty much Angie grew horns because she messed up her transformation into her other form so they're there permanently. Cora suffered the same fate. In Phinora culture it's seen as a really bad thing as it shows that you aren't able to control your other form well enough to have a seamless transformation. It usually happens when a Phinora tries to transform when they're extremely upset, with both Angie and Cora being hotheads it was probably inevitable. If they weren't blood wielders, they would have gotten a lot of flack from the tribe.

I forget what the deal is with Angela's horns.  Now please correct me, but I thought that her growth was stunted or something so her horns were 'small'.  But I see none of the phinora here actually have any horns present.  So is she just a mutant?

Angie's Daddy DOES care ;3; Really great easygoing B.B. I felt we got a real chance as a viewer to take a well needed breather from the action and danger to enjoy some character development

I read it, I loved it. I do have to say though, that with so many new characters being introduced I had a habit of assuming some of them were just another new person when it turned out they were someone from a previous page. I got it on the second read, but I suppose it's a good thing if I read it once and want to read it again, huh? hehe. To contradict that however, the two grandfathers reactions to their granddaughter was absolute gold and does so much to show their attitude. It's plenty obvious the women of this tribe are a bit more subtle than the men. hehe. Poor angie nearly getting hugged to death. ^_^

Thanks Dawg!

Are you more experienced with the pen tool? I might hit you up for tips on doing word bubbles right. I always avoided the pen tool for the tails but I think it would help. And I'll work on consistency! I need to better about having the previous page open as I work.

You have grown a lot. This is really nice to see.

2 critiques:

First, you made a bit of a rook mistake with some of your speech bubbles. There is not enough buffer space between the text and bubble edges. Well, maybe I shouldn't say rook, since it's really common and even a fair amount of pros are guilty of it. In any case, you should make the speech bubbles a bit wider. Preferably, the space on the left/right and top/bottom of the text should be about the same size. This probably isn't a huge deal, but it will make comics a bit more readable, which will help the flow.

You draw Angie a bit inconsistently at times. That in itself isn't a big deal.. comics in general are VERY inconsistent, but I feel I should point it out because some of these changes almost make her look like a different sex. I've noticed it mainly in the jawline. Sometimes her jaw will get very flat and very square. That only small line can make her look like someone else entirely.

That last one is a bit nit-picky, but I think you at a level where you deserve those now.

Thank you very much! I will try and do more with my layouts. I don't think I'll ever go that fancy as I'm not a fan of that sort of thing, but I'll try and change things up some more. Glad you guys enjoyed it!

This was pretty great.

Joe Said it all. I thought You really had a handle on personalities. A lot of characters, all similar due to culture yet still distinct. I can really appreciate that. Fantastic job on everything.

# 8   Posted: Nov 25 2012, 08:42 PM
Okay, I have some.
I didn't mark you as high on creativity as I did on the other parts.
This is probably because the subject matter is harder to make something creative of. For example you had more opportunity with the last one with monsters and stuff. I guess you could make clothes and the tribal area and architecture more visually exciting though.
Also, this is just a personal thing, but I feel your comics could be improved with some more exciting layouts. What you have is honestly awesome and really works, using squarey rectangley whatever you call them shapes, but I think an even more dynamic and sophisticated compostion of a page and panels could help your storytelling even more.
So maybe, if you get the chance experiment with that a bit.
I have a feeling I sound really patronising when I make comments like this, especially when commenting on peoples work that is so much better than mine, but I honestly just want to help.

Nawwww, Angie is just a little kitten really! So young and small...
I think you've really done the interaction, awkwardness, love and the like, really well between Angie and her Dad. Made me really feel something inside which is rare in most comics I read.
So great!
I'll have to think of some constructive criticism, but can't right now haha.

Glad you liked it Joe! This is completed and uploaded, I'll be putting it up on Monday, after all this holiday craziness.

# 5   Posted: Nov 21 2012, 07:25 AM
I'm really excited for this because I really loved the last one. :)

# 4   Posted: Nov 20 2012, 05:15 PM
Glad to hear it! Hopefully it delivers! Not sure when the print version will drop.

Pushed the deadline back slightly. Think I'll be done by my original deadline, but I wanted a buffer to be on the safe side.

# 1   Posted: Oct 23 2012, 11:03 PM
Very likely the deadline will be adjusted as I'm juggling 3 ongoing titles at the moment  so sometimes things get a little...interesting. But at the very least I'm nearing the finish line on the inks, just gotta tone which shouldn't take long. So expect this soon! (hopefully!)
