    I've got 1024x768, and it's pretty tiny for me as well. I can still read it mind you, but it is super tiny.

    Thanks, I debated for a long time whether I should put panel gutters between them but I figured it looks cooler like this.

    I'm officially halfway through the first issue now. We're sending out the pitch to seven different companies in the next couple days (Image, Fantagraphics, Dark Horse, Slave Labor, Drawn and Quarterly, Top Shelf, and Tokyopop). Cross your fingers for me.

    I didn't know that Tokyopop published non-manga stuff. In any case, good luck!

    Thanks. Tokyopop published The Abandoned by Ross Campbell, which is very un-manga, so that's the only reason I'm submitting to them. I actually showed some pages to a Tokyopop editor a year ago when he came to my school, and he said my style's not manga enough. I took it as a compliment (take that, manga!)

    Anyway, they're accepting project submissions, so I figure why not?

    I'm assuming none of those publishers have any kind of qualms about multiple submissions, right?

    Good luck either way, although I base that off the fact you deserve it, not that you'll need it :wink:

    One of the companies said they need to know if we're submitting this to multiple publishers. I forget which one. Our plan is to include in the cover sheet that it's a multiple submission, so they all know.

    Does anyone know anything about submitting to publishers? I've been reading a few submission guidelines on different sites, but I'm not the one writing the pitch, Kevin (the writer) is. So far we've got a cover letter, a page talking about who we are and what our goals with the series are, two pages of character descriptions, six pages of synopses, and a page about a possible sequel miniseries, then the first fourteen pages that I have done. And that's cut way down from what it was to begin with, where there would be a three or four page synopsis of each issue. Is this still too much?

    I've no experience in comic pitches, but as a general rule it's far better to give publishers too much than too little (although obviously you should stick religiously to the individual guidelines each publisher offers). As long as the portfolio/samples are well arranged, they'll be able to navigate them even if there's more content there than they would've expected.

    And relax, I'm sure your art would carry it even if your writer just scribbled all over the submission letter :P

    I like how the dad acts, he's my favorite character, but is his only purpose for comic relief though? That's what it seems like.

    No. In later issues his character becomes much more developed. Also, Kevin has started writing a second six-issue miniseries while I'm working on this one, and in the second one Richard becomes the focus of the story.

    THE SUNDAYS has been the major project I've been working on for the last five years or so (I've probably re-drawn the first ten pages at least half a dozen times), so it's exciting to be so close to finishing the first issue. Here are two new pages, pg. 19 and 20.

    We submitted this to every independent publisher we could find, but they all passed on it. This year we decided to redo the whole thing as a webcomic, and put up one page a week. Here's what we have so far:

    the art is clean, but very stiff and lifeless. It reminds me of Michael Oeming's work in Powers, but very stagnant. The lack of facial expressions mustang mentioned has a lot to do with it, but also the characters look very forcefully posed, with no exaggeration to their movements at all.

    looking forward to seeing more of it though.

    This is a positive statement.

    Holy shit man I remember this shit! Your comics are awesome shit! I want to eat your shit, I'm eating your shit right now! Mmmm, tasty shit!

    Seriously, I haven't seen your comic since 2007. I love it man, keep it up.

    But yea, to amp up your emotion, I would doodle an over exaggerated emotion, then tone it down to what you need. That's just what I do to capture emotion. Whatever works best for you though.

    I'm loving these as well.

    a tip on drawing convincing emotions is to get a mirror and make the face you want to draw. Then let your expression drop. Make the face again paying close attention to what changes. works much better than just trying to draw the expression you see in the mirror.

    Click the preview to see the whole page. Sorry to do it like that, and I don't want it to seem like I'm site-whoring (I really do want critiques on this page), but when I show the page in the thread I don't get views on the ads on my site. So it's an extra click for you guys but it gives me a few extra pennies.

    I'm just wondering how fucking narcissistic you would have to be to say that you're the fourth hottest girl in school.

    Maybe that adds to her character but it seems a little weird to me that she would say that.

    Laura is a very narcissistic character. It's actually a running joke. On page three Teddy calls her the fifth hottest girl in school. Here we see she is moving herself up the list, and by the end of the first chapter she's almost at the top of it.
