    i rather like these, one thing i would change though is the bottom right corner of the first one. those are all copy pasted and look kinda static, plus they have no shadows like the rest of the image. unless it is part of the logo? not sure

    the second one is my favorite out of these though

    thanks alot. yea, when i was creating that image it was just a filler. not a good one though lol. i just thought the bottom looked a lil empty. thanks for checking out my work.

    These are nice. I like them alot actually, especially your 'swift' ones. Lots of character in them. The only thing I would critique are the colors used in your shadows. Try using more blues or purples in areas where warm lighting is involved.

    what is papyrus

    It's what people wrote stuff on in ancient times.

    I once knew of this font, and knew that it was bad to use. Somehow I forgot. And now I know again. :D

    There's nothing wrong with papyrus per se, but it has been waaay overused over the years. It's cliche at this point.

    I like how eye-catching your pages are. They certainly grab you.

    I think you could improve the writing and the continuity.

    "This village will be ours"
    "Honey, I'm right behind you"
    "We have to get out of here"

    None of these phrases seem distinct for your project or memorable or very interesting. What if "This village will be ours" was changed to something like "This village will fall under the might of the bear clan!" It prevents the phrase from being interchangeable with any other project. When I think about great quotes from movies or memorable dialogue, they are not run of the mill or mundane. They are exciting and different from something we hear everyday!

    Perhaps this page would be easier to understand with more pages in context, but it took me like 6 times of looking at this to see what was going on. The squirrel in the third panel seemingly pops out of nowhere. But maybe it's easier to understand with more pages, so I'm not going to get into that much.

    There's some other stuff too, hopefully someone else can point them out so I don't seem like a meanie.

    I think with some extra effort your works could hold up under close scrutiny. But I think you're on the right track. And welcome to the AC!

    thanks. I know exactly what you mean. Especially after hearing it from another person it really stands out. I'd have to go back to my writers about the issue so they can fix things up. Thanks for the info. Don't be afraid to give me more critique. I'm 20 and I have a long way to go and I'm trying to learn as much as possible. But again, thanks and Im glad to hear some great advice.

    Ill be sure to post up more stuff as time goes to show improvement from art through dialogue.

    really nice work
    i really like your squirrel character, neat character design :D

    for the last two, the fairly odd parents one is dead on
    at first glance i thought maybe someone had posted an "official" fairly odd parents image to compare it to your style or something.

    for resident evil, his gun toting arm is bigger than his other arm
    that's really all i got for now
    it's morning haha.

    Thanks a bunch. I really messed up on that arm in the RE pic lol.
    I was wondering if the cartoon aspect was off for the type of game resident evil is.


    Also, thanks about my squirrel character. he took a lot of tweaks but I'm pretty pleased on how he
    ended up.

    I'll post more work for critique
