I have begun a new Web Comic. http://www.epicsofvlad.com/
The comic may be seen at this link. I post daily and the website is growing and developing on a daily basis.
This is an example of a strip from the comic.
The Epics of Vlád is a web comic about the journeys of the most epic hero ever known. Vlád. The web comic itself is a general satire on video game and anime cliches. Specifically focused on the more rpg style and fantasy setting types of these two mediums, the story sees the hero romp through a myriad of challenges and adventures which pit him against a number of mythological beasts both re-envisioned and made up. He will face off against some of the most common and standard villains known to fans of these settings. He will endure unspeakable hardships and terrible crushing blows to his person on multiple levels as he fights his way towards a showdown with his nemesis, The Dark.
If you like video games, anime, superheroes, monsters, or mythology then you may find this web comic enjoyable. Please check it out.
I am a fledgling artist and if you look at the comic you can see that I am developing as I go along. I do encourage any sort of criticism and helpful advice.
I am currently drawing the comic with a pencil and then using a scanner. After scanning I use threshold adjustments to black/white it and I color it using graphicsgale. It's what I have available. Pixel art isn't something I have a TON of experience in but I don't have a tablet so I use a mouse and make it work.
Thank you for your time,

It's not a forum about webcomics, it's a forum for art critique. They welcome webcomics, but you need to actually post the images of the comics here using the image tags so we an take a look at them and critique them.
Just do that and you'll be good to go.
At the top of the page there is a rules thread, conveniently titled: Rules Thread - Read Before Posting!
Among other things on there, #7:
Pretty much, if you want feedback for your comic the way to do it here is by actually posting images. Just linking to your page is considered site whoring here (and most online communities around the internet). It is rightly frowned upon.
And the fact you are sitewhoring it depresses me in a way you can never understand
It looks like you've got six actions taking place by choice of six panels.
Do some thumbnails (tiny, simple sketches) of each panel. It doesn't have to be perfect or anything, but figure out the best way each panel can take advantage of the space on its own. Imagine each panel is your only panel, and that one action is the only thing going on. Make that work.
Once you've got some that you like for each panel, now try redrawing them on, like, post it notes or other small pages. Play with the layout of these panels, how they might look good together. Two rows of three? Three rows of two? A vertical stack of six images? Maybe you decide one panel should be a lot bigger than the rest. Just play it out.
That'll give you some interesting stuff to try, and will make a world of difference in terms of how strong your stuff can be well before you're even ready to colour it and so on.
Every time a person gives me advice like this I think to myself. "Wow, why didn't I post in forums sooner and get this kind of help before?" The internet is such a powerful tool and I am constantly impressed by how many truly helpful people are knowledgeable about so many things.
I don't take offense to people torching me. I know that some people delight in such things. Take the good with the bad.
