Hey guys, this forum seems full of awesome artists, so I thought I'd share my stuff and maybe get some feedback and cc, I do a lot of comic stuff (and am planning on launching a comic site soon) and I love playing with different styles and materials.

Here's a few comics:
MalaiseParty-InkonPaper.jpg

6EntirelyHorrible-PenandInkonpaper.jpg

5DogTherapy-Inkonpaper.jpg

baddaydog.jpg

And some illustrations, this one's a cover design for a graphic novel I'm working on:
3Messiah-Inkonpaper.jpg

an anti valentines card:

and a self portrait because I love myself so much:

    Nightmare dog had me laughing out loud.

    Your work has a melancholy tone and a sense of irony that looks to be a solid foundation for a unique comic. I enjoy the watercolor feel. In general the only piece in here I don't like is the last one (self-portrait). I think organic lines fit better with your tone and style than rigid straights and graphs.

    I enjoyed them all. The anti-valentine is kind of weak, but I really like the self portrait.

    I horribly enjoyed all of those. Black humor at it's best.

    However I do notice that the forth comic (the one with felines and rainbows) seems to be of better scan/picture quality than the first two.

    Like, you see what I mean? White in the first comic is more of a very light gray-blue?

    Other than that, you should be doing a webcomic, you'd probably do quite well.

    Thanks for the comments guys, it's great to hear I'm doing something right. I agree with you kinda about the self portrait Heartlash, I liked how my face and the colouring turned out, but the rest of it fell flat of what I was trying to do.

    AMK: The first few I did on much larger paper, slightly bigger than a3 size, then I realised that was way too big to scan so I had to get my friend to lay them flat and photograph them with his SLR, the Bad Day Dog comic is on a4 so I could just scan it straight in, which is why it doesn't have the grey tone of the first two.

    Nightmare Dog = wonderful!

    Fantastic to see hand-done work as well, it often has so much more personality than digital.

    Keep up the good work.

    Your comics are wonderful.

    Please persist with them. I lol'd immediately. This is a very good sign.

    Oh man you're awesome.

    yeah man you have a hell of a cool thing going with most of those strips

    not a huuuge fan of the extra-lines-everywhere style in the cute dog strip

    but i LOVE the clean lines + wash style of malaise party/terrordog etc.

    also it is always nice to meet a fellow doodler of farting butts

    Not a lot has me posting in the AC. I'm more of a lurker here, just checking out the cool shit people post.


    I like these. Do you watch Todd Solondz movies? I get that vibe from this.

    For some reason the second comic reminds me of Eugene Mirman. The guys appearance, not comedy. You also pull off that adult swim look well.

    Overall, I like the style, shading and color. I'm not interested in most web comics (for instance the Straub comics posted on the main site a few days back) a lot lack depth that I look for and just gun for that third (or last panel joke) I didn't get that vibe from yours.

    That's not to say they're all winners, the valentine missed for me, and the Messiah cover looks unfinished (is it?)

    I'm more of a writer than an artist and I can see some good plotting in this work. Good stuff.

    I've heard of Todd Solondz but never seen his stuff, he looks really interesting though, I'll have to check him out.

    Thanks everyone else for the awesomely nice feedback, I've got good news too, I'm getting my friend to set me up a website, and hopefully next monday will see the first comic being posted on www.booksbeersandballpoints.com, I'm going to be updating twice a week (mondays and thursdays) with comics about whatever I feel like. My goal is to be constantly experimenting, playing with new and different concepts, mediums, layouts, ideas and styles, if you like my stuff posted here I hope you'll follow along and tell all your friends.

    And so this post isn't just shilling myself, here's a little concept piece I did up for a short story idea I had:

    I really love your concept piece.

    How did you capture that image? Was it with a fixed camera and a swivel light? Did you glue down the elements, or are they just sitting on the page?

    It's got a great Little Big Planet feel to it.

    I used my friend's SLR and fixed lighting to photographic, the elements are partially glued down in layers to create a 3d effect, it was really fun to make, but next time I have to remember to stretch the paper so it doesn't wrinkle.

    In the version I posted here? It's because it's two separate pictures, the version on the website only has it once.

    That's really weird, it's working fine on both the computers here.

    It might be because I'm on an old version of IE at work. Since they never update anything ever. I'll look again at home when I'm on lunch.

    The first panel of the snake men comic is funny enough on its own; but then the rest of the comic is great too.

    my only suggestion would be to remove the death to humans text bubble. I feel like it lowers the impact without adding anything.

    The bad day dog comic is up on the site.

    Noodlesalad: Yeah I wasn't too sure about that last line, I forget why I put it in now, maybe I can photoshop it out or something.
