    Accurate, but not unfixable.

    By, say, taking any of the advice in the thread.

    ...Any of it.

    If there was an atomic explosion, shouldn't the ground be all burnt up and maybe the odd mangled corpse here and there?

    Guys.

    You're complaining about the fly instead of the steaming turd.

    Guys.

    You're complaining about the fly instead of the steaming turd.

    Well, considering the steaming turd has been smelt for awhile now with nothing happening, I wouldn't mind killing a fly here or there.

    The handwritten comic you did had personality and was interesting to look at (but still not funny and with a long way to go.) These other ones are devoid of any personality and just looks like its copypasted.

    You still have a steaming turd though.

    Destined to attract more flies.

    The destruction of Stinky Man using the power of Country Music reversed the destruction of the world in strip #100 - so yes, it was a healing explosion. And yes, I realize you probably think I'm an idiot.

    Iglidante, you almost seem like a conceptual artist.

    Also, why don't you want to "completely abandon this premise"? It's just a comic, and at this point it seems like it's holding you back. You're letting it hold you back. You can work on more than one project you know.

    Oh really?

    Is that why you haven't made any changes to your comic, including the visuals (which is basically clip art and look like shit), the writing (which is piss poor and unfuny) or your characters (which aren't relateable and are boring).

    You suck and your webcomic sucks.

    Ig, I believe we've said it before: If you don't want to abandon this concept, make another comic that is different and would allow you to experiment.

    Most webcomics have a period where they constantly try new things to see what actually resonates with other people instead of what they think is good.

    At this point the lesson you would learn by letting go even a little bit is far greater than whatever favor you think you're doing yourself by sticking with this so rigidly. That being said, I don't really understand what you stand to gain from continuing this pattern of not changing anything, and then getting mad at the general forum because we wont give you advice you want to hear. I mean, can you list off hand the improvements you think you've made/listened to over the course of the thread?


    There isn't much of a difference between you and guy who wants to draw anime and refuses to learn anatomy because he doesn't understand that realism is relevant, or that it requires more than one life drawing session, or one book. They often interpret "learn to draw real people" as "abandon anime." but the advice is really "just drawing your own shit anime, you will always crawl instead of walk. If you want to walk, study other peoples styles, If you want to jog, challenge yourself with their style, study anatomy, draw a ton, if you want to run, hunker your ass down and learn all the information you possibly can and apply it to your art."

    You have a very very narrow style in this comic, and you are going to crawl. If your okay and happy with that, we cant really stop you, we also cant really help you. Quit being delusional about the amount of advice you've actually taken from this thread, most of the changes were so slight in direction I barely can tell the difference between page one and now.

    Iruka, pretty sure this has been a comic whore thread thinly veiled in a 'please crit me' thread the entire time. The excuses for bad writing and art, the 'just thought I'd share this even though it's the same shit as before' posts, the 'well see the thing is I don't really want to change anything but thanks so much for your post it was a really interesting thought' posts.

    I just re-read the whole thread though, and it's given me and others an opportunity to come up with some pretty good zingers. So, uh, we got some laughs out the comic tangentially, at least?

    Paradise: Sure, post the fanart - I'm curious now.

    Napp: The trouble is, the jokes that consensus seems to be trying to push me towards aren't jokes I can actually write. I love Fletcher's comic, for example, but my brain does not produce Antics jokes.

    Ken: Well, thanks about the music at least. Here, I'll post a song to make up for my indiscretions.

    Desp: If this is supposed to be a whore thread, it's the least successful one I've ever seen. I'm not getting traffic from the AC. I only posted the latest strip because I thought some of you might find the country music joke funny. You didn't. Joke's on me.

    Iruka: You can barely tell the difference between strip 1 and the later ones? I'm...I guess I'm just going to shut up for now.

    Heh, fair enough. But honestly, my gut reaction was "how could a webcomic not be at least a bit self-indulgent?"

    I haven't posted on this forum in several months, and the content of this thread hasn't changed since then. I'm really confused as to why people bother responding to this.

    Paradise's fan comic is the best thing that has been done with this content. That was actually absurd AND making a commentary. Did you know that absurd humor is usually aimed at making a commentary? Did you know that humor is usually aimed at making some kind of social commentary?

    If you want examples of absurdity that don't make commentary, look at the guy that does Charlie the Unicorn. He's obviously doing something right with his millions and millions of page-hits. Probably being funny, though.

    "barely" yes. I can see where you made small, cherry picked changes. That sentence is also very much besides the point in my post.
