    Thanks Paradise.

    Maybe I'll do another AC robots drawing someday. :)

    Thanks, Paradise. I used photo reference.
    Pete declined the offer, but later regretted his decision.

    Oh, what's this?! I should've looked in this thread a lot sooner!

    Sorry I've never read your thread before Nib, but I love "mob" pictures. Sweet! I may have to change my avatar.

    Also: very nice Megalon. My very favorite second-teir Godzilla nemesis in spite of the fact that he gets no respect. But hell: he's armored, he can fly, and he can shoot some kinda weird beam outta that star thing stickin' out of his forehead. I figure the only thing better than that would be a "mecha" version. One can only hope the engineers of Seatopia are hard at work on that one.

    haha, no worries. Glad you like the final product.

    I think Megalon gets no love because he was only in one movie. But for some reason I find him to be very memorable, despite his off-beat design.

    Ha, that's pretty funny Nib.

    Also, I always thought that thing was an upside down tv aerial.
    Then again I also thought Darth Vader was Dark Fader and a Light saber was a Lifesaver until I was about 10.......17.......29. :(

    Thanks, Mustang. I guess that could be a whole 'nother comic.

    Also, I have the impression that your robot has breasts in this comic. Still, I laughed hard at it!

    Thanks, MagicToaster. I see what you're saying about his chest. I'll have to rethink how I draw that.

    Nib you need to spend some time working on expressions, all your characters have a dead mannequin look about them.

    This is a pretty good tree diagram for facial expressions.

    When practicing, try to push your expressions a lot more than you think is reasonable, if only to explore the boundaries of what can look good.

    Well, the guy in the orange shirt is intently staring at the television, so I wanted him to look that way. But that's something I'll work on. Thanks guys!

    My only beef is that he's looking up in the last panel, when he should be looking in the same direction as the scowl panel. Also, the scowl is pretty good :)

    I see what you mean. I think I could've set up the geography better in that scene. I was aiming for him to look away, angry and then just shout the comeback at no one in particular. Maybe that was too complicated for how I had the panels set up. Thanks for the feedback, JLM.

    i just thought he was challenging the deity of his choice to some sort of action figure combat.... i might just be very very ill.... mentally.

    Congrats on 5 years Nib.

    Also your dudes head (in the first panel) is on a wicked lean to the right from his jaw up. I find the best trick to avoiding that kind of stuff is to constantly flip horizontally, stops your eyes from becoming too comfortable.

    Thanks, Mustang!

    Mustang - yeah, I see what you're talking about. I'm thinking I'll flip my pencils in Photoshop after they're scanned. Hopefully that will help me avoid mistakes like that in the future before I ink them. Good advice!

    Secret Santa art for Slacktron:

    And a comic:

    I've been trying to take your guyzes advice and draw eyes better and make expressions more clear.

    Hey good comic!

    You may want to do some more expression studies though cause that second panel doesn't really read as a disgusted face. It looks like he is sticking his tongue out while vacantly staring into the distance. Try to push it a bit more to the extreme methinks.

    Great linework though, and I think you can be pushing the lineweight variation and camera angles a bit more too. The quality of the lines is certainly there, and it is so clean, so clean I could eat off it.

    Panel 2 expression is definitely the weakest link.

    There're some really sweet books on expression if you've got a sack of Christmas munnies left over or something. I picked up this one awhile ago and it's helpful but not life-altering; I think the 5 star Amazon rating is a little much.

    Since I'm here, now: an extremely belated congratulations on your 5 years. That's a lot of comics, and even more commitment.

    Thanks, Adam. I'll see what I can do about more interesting camera angles. As far as line weight goes, do you think some of the lines should be thicker? Or just more different line weights?

    Squidbunny - Yeah the more I look at that panel, the more the dialogue doesn't really match it. I added that book to my Amazon list, so thanks for that. And thanks for the congrats. (:

    Yeah I would try to get some thicker lines in there, while also implementing some thinner ones also.

    For example the second panel has pretty much the same line thickness for everything. The bottle he's holding in front of him is no thicker than the folds in his shirt, and the folds in his shirt are no thicker than his nose, ect ect. Learning to get a bit bolder with thick and thin will give the reader a better idea of the hierarchy of importance within the panels. I like when lines are shifting around dramatically in thickness from one end to the other, but obviously that may not be what you're looking to do with this comic. Cheers mate.

    Yeah, I'm inking on a Wacom. I'm not sure how to make the line thickness shift throughout the line. I ink pretty slowly, but that's something I wouldn't mind trying.

    I can't help but have radical line weight shifts when inking with a tablet; you must have yours set stiffer than mine. Mine generally feels like an overloaded brush. Or maybe you're just using a thinner weight, pressing hard and taking it slow? Either way, I'ma chime in and say that more width variance could add a little more visual interest, sure, but I've never had issues with your inks; they're not totally stale and static or anything.
