tfw can't draw
tfw no comics equivalent of Unity or Unreal Engine
tfw can't make comics with SFM or something because 3D comics are forever tainted by shit like US War Machine
Fuck.

You're saying a lot of words. Let's teach you to draw!

Look, pal, if it were that simple, I'd just do it. Some folks just can't draw no matter what, and I'm one of those people.

it turns out 2018 has been postponed. you're still good.

Grayson Wilson

i dont know how to draw either but i still make the attempt, no one else is going to make this ww2 comic ive always wanted to make for me
obviously i wont publish anything until i feel like it doesnt look like middle schooler garbage

Jose Watson
Jose Watson

IT'S TOTALLY NOT LUFFY THERE'S LIKE EVERY OTHER MANGAKA THAT DOES BANDAGES
How unoriginal can a retard get? The entire thing is a shitty onepiece ripoff. The art is ugly, the writing is worse. Just looking at the thing is offensive, it's as if you think your readers are braindead kids who'll be OK with your regurgitation of oda's work.

Dewd, do you see this? This was you with your shitty overwatch wander over yonder etc ripoffs. Do you see it now that you've grown a few years?

Anthony Hughes
Anthony Hughes

Yeah. Usually when people call my characters out for looking too similar to others I usually just have them slowly develop into something else so i don't have to write them out of the story.

Sebastian Murphy

tfw nobody will know because nobody reads my comic

Jose Fisher

Do you ever have to give up established traits of your characters for better storytelling

Ryan Edwards
Ryan Edwards

Good stories are predicated on a character's defining traits. Your script should always bow to the characters, not the other way around.

Easton Carter

fucking moron

Hudson Mitchell
Hudson Mitchell

Which haircolor and why?

Carson Perez
Carson Perez

Depends on how pro-active they are and how much they play off/contrast each other. If you're writing an action series and your characters are all passive basement slackers, you're likely doing it wrong. A slice-of-life series with action in the background may be better suited for them, but they won't be compelling and and interesting to stick around with.

Thomas Rodriguez
Thomas Rodriguez

whole thing is shitty one piece rip of.
now have you actually read it?

Kevin Bailey

It's fun to shit on retards, but you know this. Everyone who's been through public school knows this, even if you don't do it, you understand it on some level. You're a slimy disingenuous piece of shit on the same level as the tranny, the reason you posed this question was hoping you'd encounter another person as weak and retarded as yourself who wouldn't have the knowledge to rebuff your passive aggressive bullshit. Be a retard, get shit on. Fuck off with your damage control.

Evan White
Evan White

We know the answer to that, strawbu.
The question is why you're still taking the bait. I mean you're taking less bait than in the past, but still. The bait they huck at you isn't even subtle.

I'd take any of them over the tranny. The one thing I admire about CF over the others is that while his ideas are shit, they are usually HIS ideas. That alone is commendable, and I hate giving him any sort of encouragement like this because last time we did (his fanart of that unkempt red haired girl swinging on the vines) his head blew up like a balloon.

Jacob Scott

Just some wee corrections there
while his ideas are shit, they are usually HIS ideas
I've been spending the last few weeks doing commentary and... in aggregate, the big ideas are mine, but all the little things are homages and references
I hate giving him any sort of encouragement like this because last time we did (his fanart of that unkempt red haired girl swinging on the vines) his head blew up like a balloon.
I recall being told a lot of "learn to take a compliment" when I kind of talked down the copious complimenting. Kind of the opposite of swellheadery.
red haired girl
Urchin's definitely a brunette, right?

Jordan Diaz
Jordan Diaz

butcher the point of the story in order to tell a better story
Last time I checked, engaging in OOC behavior just because the script says so was called bad writing. Honestly, the plot is the least important thing in any story, because what actually happens isn't the point. The point is what the characters do and how the central idea relates to their actions. The plot is merely a series of points on a line.

Asher Gonzalez

Every single post itt proves why Something Awful is better than Sup Forums, jfc

Isaac Taylor

Nicholas Foster
Nicholas Foster

I'm glad you agree with me that interesting characters are the point of a story. That doesn't seem like a common view in these parts at all.
Do you think you're clever by figuring that out? That's like going to a burger joint and reminding everyone filet mignon is better. We can't get to that restaurant. Even if we could afford it, even if we had a ride there, even if we knew where it was, they wouldn't let us in due to our shabby clothes.

Nolan Cruz

I'm actually shocked nobody has ever compared him to Cabbage Head from Kids in the Hall. Probably the lack of any other similarities. If anything, the obscure not-a-cartoon-but-kind-of Patch Head was a bigger influence. I miss Patch Head.

Have any of the several comics dealing with sentient pets brought up the pain of putting them down?

Ethan Sullivan

It’s not my fault you’re too stupid to understand the quote.

Isaiah Sullivan
Isaiah Sullivan

It'd be nice to know the podcast existed for once. Haaa just bustin your balls. I enjoyed that. Feel better soon

Camden Cook
Camden Cook

I would imagine sentient pets don't get put down, they have the ability to tell people what's wrong with them, how much pain they're in, etc, and would have the ability to follow instructions such as how to take painkillers to alleviate suffering without the need for euthanasia.

Zachary Sanchez
Zachary Sanchez

nigga nobody cares about patch head, people want to know the man behind the 1800 page testament to autism. you could catapult to fame but you're being a prude about the type of fame.

look at filthy frank, he cast away his past autistic persona and is launching a successful normietier music career, riding the coattails of past fame.

Brandon Rivera
Brandon Rivera

Along with that, a lot of the cases of sentient pets that are not furries usually revolve around young teens, who usually don't age. And since they don't age, neither do their pets. If they have to die, there is usually a time skip.

Connor Kelly
Connor Kelly

mmkay. I don't care about fame, or people who use the word autism. I care about obscure TV shows.

Angel Torres
Angel Torres

Hmm...this is a good point that might invalidate a story idea I had. But what about super aggressive cancer or things that can’t be treated? I guess that brings up the question of human euthanasia, but still...

Aaron Hill
Aaron Hill

Essentially the biggest problem with talking animal stories is they treat what you are as somehow important, rather than who you are. As soon as animals can talk, they stop being animals and start being people. Everything else becomes irrelevant.
If you have only one animal that talks and none of the others do, it's extremely sloppy and lazy writing to have everyone continue to treat them like the literally-dumb animals. Lookin' at you, Family Guy.
If on the other hand all the animals talk but they still live the lives we're familiar with animals living (being essentially homeless, lacking any kind of agency about the existence they are aware of having), it's more of a misguided setting or premise. Good example of this would be Charlotte's Web.

Carter King

people talking up SA
I’ve been a member since 2009, and let me tell you, it’s not that great. Take their games forum for example; it’s literally the exact same thing as /v/, only you get probated or banned for calling people faggots and niggers. As for their webcomics discussions, sure, the conversations are usually more intelligent, pedos are permabanned on sight and other cool things, but it gets, like, 5 posts a month if you’re lucky.

As much as I hate the density of shit posting here, knowledgeable people do sometimes post here, and I’d like to get feedback more often than once a year.

First off, whichever one of you pledged 5 dollars on the patreon thank you! It feels great to have the patreon already making money, even a little.

Next, Mitch and I are going to do the first Mitch and Otto's Comicbook Podcast Friday. We'll answer as many of the questions you posted last thread as possible. The theme of the episode is "Webcomic beginner guide".

If you have any other questions you'd like to ask please tell us. We'll answer (almost) anything!

If Coldfusion wants to have us interview him, yeah sure.

Would you be willing to talk to us Coldfusion?

Just update twice for the day you missed

Jose King
Jose King

First question.
Why should people listen to your advise on "Webcomic beginner guide" when none of you have produced a successful web comic. And by successful I mean in nearly all regards from monetary, to readership or relevance.

Also, what do you like the most about each other.

Levi Rivera
Levi Rivera

Sure.

Jason Price

Tyler Russell
Tyler Russell

One character is 14 while the other is 18, which is statuatory rape in every civilized country. Also, how does them being mother and son not make it worse?

Jayden Campbell
Jayden Campbell

Maybe we aren't successful by your standards, but we do have webcomics with audiences and we do update them every week. We're roughly 300/14000 on the webcomiclist ranking. That's not the best, but that's far from the worst.

Evan Rivera
Evan Rivera

Maybe we aren't successful by your standards
monetary, readership and popularity are the standards which most people go by to define comics as successful.

Brody White

300/14000 is a metric of popularity.

Brandon Myers

Kayden Butler

it does make it worse. that's my point. You're so caught up in your pedo scare you're missing the bigger picture.
every civilized country
weak trolling. also, 17 and 14.

Isaac James
Isaac James

Alright then.

You got bumped to the front of the line bones.

Jose Gomez
Jose Gomez

the 299th comic on that list is an obscure comic with 5 patrons, its A metric of popularity but not a very impressive one that would qualify as being successful

Logan Bell
Logan Bell

He's got a point. Mediocre though the ranking may be it is a ranking closer to the top than the bottom.

Is Capeworld the only comic posted here with a rank? If so it's kind of the alpha dog by virtue of default.

Jacob King
Jacob King

In some states and countries that still lands as statutory rape.

Oh dear jesus.

Jace Walker
Jace Walker

You're free to say whether or not we're successful. I think we are, especially for a site that started back in November. We're making content, we're gaining an audience, and best of all we're growing. We used to be in the 500's.

Order of the Stick we aren't. But we aren't posting here about how we've given up hope and can't get anyone to look at our comic and just can't make it work.

We're better off than a lot, and that's a kind of success.

Bones is just the trolly guy that likes goths and Stephen Universe right?

I know its a little off topic, but I really doubt this general even has a topic at this point. In the scenario a 17 year old is having sex with a 14 year old, so anyone at or over the age of 17 is committing statutory rape in these states. The U.S. is pretty sane with these laws in regards to the rest of the world, so the 16 to 18 range is pretty standard.

Age of consent doesn't work that way. You aren't forbidden from mixing over-and-under, you're forbidden from mixing over-18 and under-AoC. Jesus christ. The fact that you think any of this is sane is very, very sad. Basic "enlightenment" thinking of 'every past generation is stupid but we finally got it right'

Lucas Ward
Lucas Ward

Theres absolutely nothing that describes the under 18 above AoC situation you're talking about. Every state has a hard limit that at the age of consent, no more mixing underneath it. The only exceptions are states with Romeo and Juliet laws, which are rarer than people think.

I'm not even mad, I'm just trying to clear up a misconception. Theres a lot of free legal research based on it since its a very muddied topic. I'm reading this based comparisons of my state's statutes.

Jonathan Ross
Jonathan Ross

the way it works is that ostensibly nobody is meant to have sex below those ages at all, but it's understood that a legal minor can't be held responsible period. you don't suddenly gain special responsibilities and restrictions because the state recognizes your consent

oh, my mistake.

Well if we take a look at how two different states interpret the statutes, you'll find that its how I described it. However, after a certain difference in age, it allows either harsher sentences or bigger fines in civil court. I'm using Texas and California because I am familiar with them, and they tend to be a fair representation of how other states use their statutues.

Yeah California might not have been the best pick, but let me copy past the Texas Penal Code section that I'm talking about.

Texas Penal Code - PENAL § 22.011. Sexual Assault

(a)A person commits an offense if the person:

(2)intentionally or knowingly:

(A)causes the penetration of the anus or sexual organ of a child by any means;

(B)causes the penetration of the mouth of a child by the sexual organ of the actor;

(C)causes the sexual organ of a child to contact or penetrate the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor;

(D)causes the anus of a child to contact the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor; or

(E)causes the mouth of a child to contact the anus or sexual organ of another person, including the actor.

(c)In this section:

(1)“Child” means a person younger than 17 years of age.

There is no other distinction in the code, but in reality the State will allow you to use age as a defense if you are within 3 years.

Adam Morris

again, nothing in those statutes suggests that a 17 year old could ever be prosecuted merely for sex. It's hard to prosecute minors at all, though bafflingly they can be tried as adults for taking "child pornography" of themselves.

they won't even be getting CF, the one man from /hyw/ I'd actually be interested in an interview of. megan needs to write a book on the history and psychology of cf already, i'd buy that shit in an instant

Levi Myers
Levi Myers

I feel like we're confused. I originally claimed the 17yr old could be arrested for sex with an 14yr old, like in the Goriland comic. That is considered sexual assault, or informally as Statutory Rape
Sexual Assault
Person commits an offense if
Intentionally or knowingly
Causes the penetration of the anus or sexual organ of a "child" by any means
"Child" means a person younger than 17 years of age

So in this case, the child could report it and it would be statutory rape.

Nicholas Parker
Nicholas Parker

That's kind of a stretch though. Just because you aren't in their definition of child doesn't put you in their definition of prosecutable adult. The law is literally sitting there explaining details about who is or isn't a victim, it says squat about who may or may not be allowed. There's a good reason for that, they don't want the other 14 year olds to be like door's open, have fun.

Josiah Carter
Josiah Carter

I mean yeah, at the end of the day I'm just being an asshole about semantics, but semantics are important in law. And they do have certain definitions that extend the rape laws even farther e.g. clergymen, but at the end of the day the laws mostly affect high schoolers and their parents who are the ones who decided to prosecute or sue.

All though as a fun thought experiment, if I had the settings of webcomics that fuck with /ss/ (or really any comic with crime) I could write up legal documents against the characters. I have the program most law firms in the country use to create paperwork.

There's something seriously wrong with my tablet and I'm not sure if it's the tablet's fault or the pen's fault or what.

It does this annoying sputtering shit when the pen isn't even touching the tablet yet putting like 20 individual dots on the canvas every goddamn time and it's just getting on my nerves.

Every solution I've tried that worked at first (installing new tablet drivers, turning pressure sensitivity up) eventually went back to doing the same old shit again and now I don't know if I should replace this thing or if there's some way to fix it or what.

My tablet used to do something similar, taking over mouse inputs and going to places it shouldn't when the pen wasn't close, but I found out it was my phone causing wireless interference, so your tablet might be experiencing that too.

Isaiah Morgan

not sure how i'm going to start learning to draw people, only symbol-drew vehicles as a kid, so can do that reasonably well, but can't even imagine people, or conceive of how shapes fit together for them. (for long enough i somehow had the bizarre idea that the way to give a character a "soft" look was to keep lines as straight as possible.) obviously the initial answer is "read loomis" or such, but i'm getting at a deeper problem, which is the lack of any real intuitive understanding of how to do it. it's not about drawing, but about having an image of a person in my head, and that's what's largely missing (autism)
if only it was as easy as blogposting.

Ian Edwards
Ian Edwards

Your art is pretty swell, and your designs definitely play up the shapes to make each character look different. My only gripes are the lines, and the colors.
I took your drawing (and I hope you don't mind), but I thickened up the lines in some places. I like how you're considering line weights, but they seem all over the place, and you're mixing it with thin lines (IE, Head, all thin lines), with really thick lines (shoulders, stomach contour) which is a little jarring. I think I know where you're coming from, in viewing the segments of the body in different planes to get that 3D effect, but I also think you should consider the finesse of how lines flow. Admittedly, I had a little fun with the tail-appendage things.
Secondly, you may want to consider using flats instead of a watercolor like style (this is just for the sake of time). Although your shading isn't bad, it can look a little messy in some places and confuses the gesture (panel 1, lighting on the rib, shadows on left leg), it may also help to make the shades between your lights and darks more dramatic.

If your files are coming out artifact heavy, then you need to adjust your settings. From an artist perspective you want your images to come as clean as possible because you worked hard on them, readers didn't see you spending hours working on your comic they just see the final product and don't care about a few artifact they don't even notice cause they are viewing it in their phone.

They just want something quick to read while on the train.

I think the fact that he's completely wooden and uninterested in the succubus is what makes it interesting and distinct. it also gives her a legit reason to fall for him. i mean how often does that happen? succubus. no reaction.

Leo Morgan
Leo Morgan

No, it's putting out a lot of content of constant quality for years and not being too stingy to pay an artist. The author wasn't making half the money two years ago, but they kept going, kept writing and marketing themself, findig more skilled artists to work with, building reputation and a fandom. Say what you want but over ten finished comic series is pretty impressive. The content is entertaining enough to have a readerbase and the art is good enough so people want to see patreon content. Kudos, Merryweather.

Mediocre content by industry standards but lightyears ahead of you bucket crabs. You can make fun of him if you make more money then him, else you just come off as a sore loser.

Also original content is overrated. If you want to makr money through webcomics you have to put constantly a lot of content out there. Or be up to industry standards, but then you could as well let it professionally published.

Also, keep this in mind - people read webcomics as a short distraction and part of their daily routine. Most people don't care about your story, they want easily accessible entertainment. Peoplr who read for story look for it in comic stores or conventions.

Learn from Merryweather, he's doing it right.

Just don't think its a good thing. It is not. Whatever shit you do, you will find at least a thousand cunts who would love this. Its so naive to let this fact delude yourself. You know yourself that your work is clihe, that its a stillborn, nothing basically. A waste of time. You actually know that. I too hope you will do some original work in the future.

Christopher Howard
Christopher Howard

Unsure whether I've bitten off more than I can chew
Basic idea is to have a comic that works on two levels - on the simple level, there's a basic "rich sociopath partners" comedy thing that you can understand without going into the details, but then there's an extra layer that people familiar with the set pieces should find amusing. Doubting I've actually got the talent to find the appropriate balance between just doing a lighthearted character comedy that could work with any set pieces ("they want to steal a thing that will give them money"), and doing an incredibly boring series of conversations about the median projected impact of Brexit on the value of futures contracts for potatos from burundi.

I'm here by chance. Not to make fun of you, not to help you, I just stumbled into this thread and something of interest caught my attention, else I wouldn't even have bothered posting.

In what way is /ic/ better than /hyw/
It's not.
Sup Forums as a whole is a shitty place.

I can't recommend /ic/. I can, however, recommend a lot of resources, reference, guides, tutorials and artbooks I found there.

/ic/ is a toxic place. It was, however, an eye opener regarding artistic improvement.
If you ever check this place out, don't take it too serious and never lose your spark. Keep drawing comics.

On the other hand I think the quality of a lot of works in this thread is both artistically and story wise really weak, but as long as you guys just want to have a good time and share your stuff, who am I to judge.

That's not what I said, but I can see how it can be misunderstood.

First off, you CAN make money with an ongoing 'story based' comic series, it just has too many drawbacks to seriously consider an option, when you could easily send your stuff to publishers as a graphic novel.

A page in a story based comic is always in context to the previous and following pages, which has a few drawbacks: readers aren't that excited about single page uploads if there is nothing exciting happening* and it also makes it harder to share the comic on social media or just jump into it, since you have to start from the beginning.

*Not saying pages can't be all interesting, but if you force a punchline in every page your pacing might suffer

Another thing: I said easily accessible comics have a higher success rate, not that you should aim for mediocricy!
Do you seriously think Merryweather here tried to be mediocre? Of course not, they gave their best to create an entertaining story.

The better your comic, the better your chances of success are.

this is a poisonous place filled with children and people who think like children. this thread in particular isn't that bad but as a whole imageboard culture is a breeding ground for nonsense and petty cruelty.
as it stands half the reason i post is because i've got nothing better to do and the other half is because someone disagreed with me and i've made it my mission to waste more of their time than they waste of mine, ideally (if circumstances allow) finding something they're insecure about and pushing the issue in the hopes it might actually get to them. i hate my fellow posters. i hate all of them.

the magic illusion of an imageboard is that you only see posts, not posters - in ideal circumstances. the guy you love in this thread is the guy you're wishing cancer on in another. slowly it will dawn on you that this is great for social harmony, but ultimately means you're locked in a retard box with insufferable people. you win one argument and another begins - is it the same retard as before, or is it another child?

and so now we come to the natural question: why are YOU here if you hate us all so much?
i'm here because i think a webcomic might be the route out of this self imposed hell. i'm lying to myself though, i have to escape this shithole before i'll put pen to paper for any purpose other than signing paperwork.

Mediocre content by industry standards but lightyears ahead of you bucket crabs.
The only thing lightyears better about Merry's comic is the art (which he pays other people to do). The writing is mediocre by any standard because anybody can copy.
Also original content is overrated.
Oh okay you're retarded.
Also, keep this in mind - people read webcomics as a short distraction and part of their daily routine. Most people don't care about your story, they want easily accessible entertainment. People who read for story look for it in comic stores or conventions.
A lot of comic with long story are popular enough to generate stable income.

Originality IS overrated and ideas matter way less than you think. What's important is the execution of your story, not it's uniqueness.

You here that everybody? We should all write the same shitty harem anime stories as long as we're writing it differently. Copyright? More like "they have no right"

Yep. The setting, characters, pacing, and story don't matter as long as you're as good a writer as Big Dick Jones over here.

Post your work dude. Show us what a master can do with plagiarism.

You still don't get there is a difference between stealing from multiple sources to create your own work and plagiarism?

Maybe one day you can lay off your arrogance and start studying the work of others and adapt them into your own comic.

post your work
I'm not the one claiming my work is unique. Post yours if you think you created something 'original', because I highly doubt it.
It's probably just as unaware as yourself, like most amateur fiction.

Asher Clark

are you saying stealing is good because basically all i do is steal from such a diverse range of sources even i can't keep track of what's original anymore

Brody Scott
Brody Scott

are you saying stealing is good
Yes, because it's a concious decision to impliment something into your work, instead of being ignorant about it and unconciously writing clichés.

You don't have to keep track, but it's good to know your sources and, more importantly, why you chose them in first place. Just stealing is not enough, you have to compose a new piece out of it.

Crabs are going full jelly mode because their SO ORIGINAL comics and ideas barely get any attention.

David Kelly
David Kelly

It talks about 'wrongful appropriation'. Being inspired by something and implementing bits of it into your work is not 'wrongful appropriation', especially since it's not directly quoting or copying anyone's work, but certain elements of it (style of dialogue, a scene, a setting, the color design, and so on...) that can't be traced back to the respective originator, as they are not the only source of you, and I put it in quotes, 'stealing'. You HAVE to 'steal' in order to get a decent product.

Steal from ficion. Non fiction. Life.
Be inspired by other comics, but also history, nature and your own experiences.

Stealing might be a bad choice of words because those ideas don't belong to anyone. The concept of 'copyright' is deeply flawed.

If you think you can come up with something 'original' without using the work of others, be it directly or indirectly, you're beyond naive. The differnce, like I said in another post, is that if you think about 'stealing' CHOOSE your references, instead of letting them unconciously fester into your work, creating clichés.

It's not just the fingers, the foreshortened perspective is awful, there are blatant anatomical errors and the facial features wonky.

I'm honestly amazed the artist is capable of drawing the individual features and clothes this well, with a fairly dynamic pose, good lineart and good color choices, and yet fail so hard at simple anatomy.

The end result still works, yet I'm curious how they can do so well in some places and so badly in others.

If I may say something as a gay guy who read too much japanese comics.
Comics with gay protagonists that aren't romances or coming out stories are rare so if you do it you can hit a niche. However if it's not shown or advertised from the beginning as LGBTBBQBRAAP but some generic adventures some readers may drop your comic whenever something gay happens.
gave good advice if your setting has no visible homophobia
is how you can bait fujoshits even if your comic's not explicitly homo
If you do want to use romance as some sub-plot rather than protagonist mentioning off-hand his bf you can score brownie points by avoiding these cliches:
- making one character submissive feminine small and the other tall aggressive assertive and masculine (seme.uke dichotomy - real gays don't do it)
- predatory gay trope
- gay char lusting over heterofriend and molesting/kissing him in the sleep
- treating sexual assault and/or rape like nothing because "it was done out of love"
- whatever writer of Rawhide Kid thought of
- everyone in the cast turning gay/bi/trans (lgbt's do cluster but because they're gay networking not, because of ~7 people suddenly being ~5% minority)
- including"demiboy" "demigirl", "demisexual", "gray asexual" or other tumblr sexualities as legitimate characters

Sorry if it seems too entitled or demanding, but I thought I can give some perspective. If you make something passable I can spread the word of your webcomic on /lgbt/

You mean sexually? Or making wacky gay headcannons? If it's the latter then Bakougou from My Hero Academia alwasy stroke me as some closet case of repressed manlust to Deku. It's a pretty well known meme except heteros take it ironically and me - all the contrary.

Is it supposed to be some romace, romance with adventurous background, adventures with romance subplot, or just adventures of a guy with a guyfriend?

Owen Miller

Thanks user, nice to see someone bothers to read my posts.
The thing is that the "market" doesn't lack gay romances or gay romances with adventure/space/supernatural elements or background. What's really missing is holywood-type action focuses piece where the protagonist gets a guy instead of a girl at the end.
Not that I'm commanding you to do it, just showing what has a niche. Of course it won't attract 12-years-old fujoshis which can make considerable readerbase.
Dunno if you're interested but I know an example how absolutely NOT write gay characters in webcomics.

- long and boring, bad pacing
- hardcoded seme/uke bullshit
- deliberate and stupid "plan" as a way to make relationship
- idiotic premise from the very beginning
- gay character is misogynist that's somehow popular with women
- sexual assault is ok because "i luv you uwu"
- being a dickhead is ok because tragic past
- "i only pretended to be in love (because I'm totally hetero), but now i've fallen for real!"
- there's no homophobia at all (acceptable trope if you have non-real life setting or your target are perverted 13-y.o. girls)
- drawing is animu-style but with even poorer anatomy
- mixing serious drama with chibi style
- mixing chibi style with non-chibi style
I can count and count, but you get the idea.

FUKKING DROPPED
threads all over interwebz.

I know that majority of internet users in wester countries don't mind some gay background or supporting character but making the main one
gay "out of blue" WILL cause some readers to drop it. Even if "out of blue" means "doesn't have LGBT tag right on the cover".

Man do I know that feeling. I've been practicing for some 12 years I wanna say? I need to bite the bullet and get the first chapters going soon or else I'm gonna actually be 90 by the time I finish the goddamn comic.
also been saying that for 7 years now
I don't even post any fucking artwork because of this so I basically have negative fanbase. Getting off the ground is gonna be an ass.

I needed this in my life so badly. I want to help you at every step of the way, because I can see the areas you need improvement in are actually the few I'm qualified to help in

I'm glad you like it!
I know I need to improve my art in general, and I want to switch to digital soon. Do you see anything specific I need to work on? I know I need to get good at feet.

My general policy is to ignore or at least highly suspect these kinds of accusations

Julian Peterson

Not them, but the composition is terrible, the line weights are nonexistant, the artist is extremely reliant on neutral angle character shots from the thigh/crotch up, and while the colors are okay they don't take the setting/lighting into consideration.

This is also one of those ~lovely~ webcomics where the writer has clearly commissioned multiple artists but only credits the current one. Real nice.

Dude, it's been known for over 50 years now. There are entire websites dedicated to showing what Bob Kane traced and how. The very first Batman story is literally plagiarized from The Shadow. You can very distinctly tell the difference between Gardner Fox and Bill Finger Batman, and Bill's Batman isn't I the news strips Kane "worked" on.

It's not up for debate. The only question is whether Kane even deserves credit, and how much.

Kayden Williams
Kayden Williams

Yeah, but then you popped in and immediately something of value was added. You've saved the discussion.

Shortcuts in language tick me off too, but you could at least have taken one second to parse it out and identify that it means "i know that feeling bro" or some approximation of it. Use your context clues, like you learned in school.

I don't know shit for acronyms and I fucking got it.

Look, nobody starts really good. Think about how many comics, web or otherwise, started with crappy art but managed to find a niche or get the audience engaged. It's all in the content and in finding your audience. You and your work will grow over the years. You'll look back, and it will suck, but you'll have found some fans along the way. The important part is to put it out there.

I like the designs, user. Do what you can. Get it started. The concept seems fun.

Trying to find artwork that I did within the past 2 years that's not spoilery and not part of a character reference is hard. Gonna fix that soon too.
I'm still not at where I wanted to be before I started because quite frankly I don't practice enough but I'm at the point where I deem it decentish.

This needs to be a thing more often.

That's enough to make comics. Stop judging yourself and use the output to improve rather than waiting for the right moment. Many webcomics start out looking funny and get better over time.

mostly just some proportioning that would definitely be solved by doing the underlying construction (ESPECIALLY with such flowy, anatomy-hiding clothes)
Switching to digital is a great idea. Do you have your tablet yet? There's kind of a learning curve, but you're in a perfect position to practice by tracing over your scanned drawings. What's more, you can fix proportions digitally and start getting a handle on the mistakes you're making as you make them.

In my experience, the truth isn't something that needs this many angry, vindictive people to back it up. I'm not saying this isn't true, just that this isn't how you truth and that lesson is a lot more important.

Jaxson Davis

Oh yeah definitely, I'm fully expecting to come back to the beginning and cry about how bad it looks. Aw hell though, I need to hold myself to some sort of a standard. Though, after years of reading webcomics, it feels like most people just desire a consistent update schedule. I can do that.

Also expecting a lot of that too. Oh well.

Isaiah Hernandez

Actually that's a good question
Is that really the first, like, captioned art? Most of that wasn't sequential, I wonder who actually pioneered that. I know the depression-era origins of lolcats better than this

I don't have a tablet yet, but I do have the cash saved up, so I want to get one over the next few months, and maybe an upgraded rig. Being able to sketch out a skeleton and do lineart over that should help as well, I think.

No, and I'm not sure what to get. I'll need to shop around.
I haven't picked out a title. In my head I refer to it as project Dadknight.

well huion slave labor tablets really do the job for not a lot of coin, and you can afford to get one as big as you want. Otherwise obviously everyone endorses wacom for a reason
Project dadknight
that's so great. If you want a pun title, you are in rich and fertile soil. Dadass. Dad Nauseum. You're Gonna Have a Dad Time.

I'll probably shell out for a Wacom then. As for the title, I'm still undecided. I'm just glad the character designs themselves are getting good remarks.

Call it the "The Lone Wolf and the Cutie"

Angel Campbell
Angel Campbell

a great comparison, but it's been done

Eli Wilson

Lone Wolf and Cutie is a good enough title where I'm considering using it. I want the story to balance out somber moments with lighthearted father/daughter stuff, so I don't think a dad pun title would fit, unfortunately.

Easton Ward

I like my homage titles a little but subtler but yeah that can work

Jason Brown
Jason Brown

I want the story to balance out somber moments with lighthearted father/daughter stuff
Then I think "Lone Wolf and Cutie" perfectly fits.
"Lone Wolf" gives off the impression the story will be brutal and the "Cutie" part implies that there will be happy moments as well.

Ryan Turner

I think this is the first time I've shown gore in a west tree comic.

Chase Miller

I mean, it's a direct take on an existing title, so

Christian Ortiz
Christian Ortiz

Actually the MC's design motif is "Beast"; I wanted him to have a more aggressive personality. So "Beast and Daughter" could work as a title if I wanted something more subtle. It's all up in the air until I launch, though.
And yes, the tricky part is balancing out violence and hardship with the comfort provided by their relationship. I feel, personally, that comfy stuff works best when it's set against a colder backdrop.

Connor Hill

Just wanted to say I'm loving the increased shading depth lately. wasn't that long ago you were doing almost exclusively rimlighting and now there's a lot more feeling of proper 3d. It'll take some more thought and practice before the shapes are more deliberate, but this is a major improve.

Jaxon Sullivan

"Cutie and the Beast" didn't occur? Or would that mislead people into assuming it was a romance
You could always homage the greatest movie ever and make it Beast Dad

Hey. im sorry for my shitty attitude and all the shitposts ive caused. ive seen a new light of day... just reflecting on tom preston.... and myself. i will be gone forever now. so anyone trying to post as me from now on is impersonator. i am working on basic perspective again(not counting this). i feel a bit suicidal, but oh well, i rather be a clean slate at this point.

Sebastian Cox
Sebastian Cox

Or would that mislead people into assuming it was a romance
Indeed it would, and romance is something I wanted to take a backseat. Especially between parent and child; I cannot pull that off. Not without being creepy.
"Beast and Daughter" probably gives off the best vibe to what I had in mind.
Actually, I'm really excited to talk about it bit more, but it looks like the thread will die soon.

Ryder Smith

And yes, the tricky part is balancing out violence and hardship with the comfort provided by their relationship.
Alright give the dad the most badass/scary sounding name ever and the girl the cutest name you can think of and just use their names as title
ie - "Conan and Clementine" or "Conan's Clementine"

Mason Myers
Mason Myers

Their names are Mikhail and Anya. Would that be catchy enough to work?

Leo Nguyen
Leo Nguyen

time to make a new one then. I'd say you should give it a try but honestly I'd rather we get the original OP image back, so best left to someone who knows our history.
I'm enjoying talking about it too.
This is actually pretty good advice, but
not really, no. Daughter of the Beast is my best suggest given current desires.

William Price

Mikhail and Anya
Oh cool they're Russian. If you want it to be "catchy" I would change it to Russian names that Americans would be familiar with it. Vladimir and Bella?

Aaron Long

Vlad the Dad

Jack Roberts

Kayden Parker
Kayden Parker

I was tempted to use Vladimir, but ultimately I'm attached to Mikhail and Anya. Plus Misha can be a pet name if I keep it as Mikhail. I picked Anya because it's the cutest name.
The Slav names fit because their clan comes from a frozen ass corner of the continent, and they're famous for being really fierce warriors who just fight everyone all the time. Mikhail has a hard life partly because of this.
When they get to other nations, the naming schemes are modeled after Western/Central Europe and the Mediterranean.

Annie and Misha is a good title.
I dig that they're russians. works great for this.

okay someone make a new thread

Andrew Harris

Althou Misha is technically a male name, in this particular form and english transliteration its more often souds like female. A guy would probably be named "Michail".
