I'm a sucker for Spike :3
To make it better, try to put him in the lower right third and add a shadow to his feet. Maybe even mess with the colors of the individual shapes of the yellow background to match the feel of the show/character.
Thank you for the advice! I usually tend to get sloppy on the BG as soon as I finish the character
Took a while to realize what it was. At first I though it was cow udder covers.
To fix this, try fixing your perspective on the smoke stacks. Something just feels off.
Good call. I gotta work on reducing the levels of slop in my work.
Very nice ink work and two tone shading! One of the checker patterns needs better line weight, but overall well done! ^-^
If this is part of a series, I don't get it. If this is an individual comic/joke, it's not a good one. For starters, please change the characters' hair colors to make them more distinct. Then you can fix your writing to correct the grammar and have a more solid punchline to your set-up.
Thank you for your response. Yes this is an ongoing series that was launched 6 months ago on the Tumblr page. I purposely assorted the comics this way to tell the stories of the characters more and their personalities than the jokes which I guess that's one flaw I realized now.
Yes the joke makes no sense but part of the universe of it is that either shit happens to them or people have spontaneous ideas to get out of certain situations but then again I should come up with better jokes that makes sense (although I enjoy making up quirky jokes for the sake of it whether readers will get it or not).
The biggest flaw in my work is that the plan of making smaller stories and short mini strips to bridge in the bigger stories didn't quite mesh together in the end. :/ (I been working this hard waiting for a critique to come around so thank you). I guess I'll consider doing the series of short stories rather than doing small strips so it makes sense to everyone that its a series of stories with these characters.
As for the blue hair (lol), these were earlier comics that I made last year for the Tumblr page and midway through production I made the decision of giving them blue hair because I don't like the blackiness of black hair (I find it rather dull so I changed it). I'm rereleasing the older comics here so I can try to get more people aware about the webcomic and, again, getting feedback.
If you follow the Tumblr version of it (http://thekidwiththeredcap.tumblr.com/) I have improved quite a lot since the first comics I made back in September 2014 and my goal is to try to keep improving on the series for everyone and make better stories and character development.
So again thank you very much for the critique and I hope you enjoyed it so far.
The boarder and background overpowers the figure a bit. Try something a bit more abstract.
thank you for your opinion!
Very good hatching job on a very cool Pokemon!
Very nice! One small gripe though. The blood looks too thin and syrupy. This is probably because of their opacity. Tweak it a bit and you got something solid.
I love the loose art style, subtlety, and color palette. Very nice piece. Very nice work.
The background is too busy and takes away from the figure. I know this is supposed to be parody, but it should still be executed better. Try experimenting with line weight and practice your highlights a bit more.
Thanks. This critique would've been helpful three years ago when I actually needed the advice.
This is pretty good, but there are a few things holding it back. The first thing is that you have two tones of highlight, but only one tone of shadow. This is a bit jarring and leaves more to be desired for the piece. If you decide to go back and visit this piece, try to apply five tones of shading per color throughout the drawing. It will be a lot stronger if you do.
