Those pages look decent. Your people are quite wonky, but that's ok. I bet your 200th page is gonna look a lot better than your first. You have talent man, don't let others negativity make you lose self confidence. Being an artist not everyone is gonna like your stuff. Artists need to be able to take a harsh critique from time to time.

Keep posting pages here when you can. What do you plan to do with this project? Self publish? E-book it?

thanks dude,heres some of my stuff..don't have hos and guns but still..give it a look :-Dhttp://sketchesandall.blogspot.com/


I like your work you have good understanding of anatomy, also your ink work is very good. But when you use a black back ground around you characters maybe you should make the white space around them closer, so it contours the form.

From my perspective, its the anatomy, but people have pointed that out already. Anatomy can be a bitch though. Keep at it.

Sometimes your drawings do look amateurish, I think you need to find some consistency in your drawing. You've got a mix of poor and excellent work sometimes on the same page.

But I know its a hard craft to master, so don't give up. How long have you been drawing?

I been drawing since I was about 4, it's easier for me to draw cities and buildings than people. I thought that I had taken care of those problems, but now I realize I have to keep working at it. Can't restart again so I'm going to make sure that the next chapter is better, theres going to be be 4 chapters total. The comic is Called Hybrid Zero. To answer your question about publishing, I'm going to build a website after the first chapter is done.

But quite frankly if you point out the offending images I could just fix them. Everything in this comic except for penciling is done digitally. I use a wacom cintq 12wx and I can change things if I desire too.

Currently I'm knocking out a page a day because I'm a girlfriend less comic book nerd.

Just in that pict posted your hands and folds of clothes suck, but there's a vibrancy to your work. So keep it going.

And being a girlfriendless comic book nerd will get you a lot of work done, and maybe the best thing for your career. Girlfriends/wives/kids etc are huge distractions and they hate being told "sorry I have work to do." when they want to go out and do something.

And if you liked Battle Chasers you should check out Shaolin Cowboy, that might be right up your alley.

just work your anatomy out,the faces especially and give more sense of movement when they swing the lances..i like it,you apply the color scheme very well and have a sense of suroundings and backgrond that is very cool
