Does anyone like this idea for a comic I had? If there's any kind of interest I might make a website for it.

    Hey, I'm sure these are just test runs, but here are some things you need to know:

    1. Shiny 3D models like those are deep within the uncanny valley, and as such are hard to look at for a long time, let alone for a comic series. I don't suppose you made them either, which might not cause any legal problems because I doubt the maker cares, I bet they were a free download, but it looks bad on you. I would try making some round little cartoony characters, the less the models approach realism the less "wrong" we perceive them as.

    2. Use clean, crisp word bubbles that have a little space around the words. Likewise just use a nice font, just take a free one from Blambot or wherever. Use American Typewriter or Casual for all I care.

    3. But a black border around the strips. Its the done thing, and in this case its a tradition that works.

    4. Keep the elephant character, maybe try making a simple pink elephant or something in whatever program you're using.
