Actually, only two of the pages I've done (pages five and six) were pencil, the ones prior to that were done with a fancy ball-point pen, and the ones after that were done with ink pens. But I see what you're getting at.

Some of the earlier comics (like mine) are a little hard to read, but otherwise, a very fun pop-culture-infested adventure so far.

I dislike how the traditional and digital aspects are handled in conjunction with each other.

A good way to get the color placed down smoothly is that when you are in photoshop you set a "multiply" layer and then color. You may also want to contrast/level your lines BEFORE coloring as well since they appear to be faded out. (The most recent page is also dimensionally huge to the point of being annoying to read.)

yeah, I oughta resize that page...

So, what do I do if I don't have Photoshop? I just downloaded GIMP, is there a way I can fix that?

So, your comic....that's a lot of penis to handle in one sitting. haha

*On topic*
It would also be beneficial if you tried to draw in the speech bubbles as well since they clash with how everything is drawn (they have dark and very clean lines).

One way to get around it is possibly using SAI or other free sources (post resizing). I'm unfamiliar with GIMP so you might want to check if there are any workarounds for that. Hitting up the art source subforum might be helpful.

(If you need more help/have further questions, please take the rest of them to PM)

I guess? 2-3 out of 200 doesn't seem like a lot to me, but one's probably too much for most people.

the font used for most of the dialogue. i actually prefer when it's handwritten in this comic - which is when the dialogue is being accentuated or muted... i've seen worse fonts, definitely, and it's not something i can't get over.

I want to disclaimer this because I love your comic so much; this comment is the nit-pickiest of nit picks. The speech bubbles sometimes blend in to the background. It's distracting for me, but I'm weird like that.

Hmmm....I guess it's that on page 14 I couldn't make out what happened at first. Other than that, I can't think of a thing.

Being suuuuper-nitpicky here ;____; But your lines feel a little flat; maybe look into line quality and how varying widths can breathe more life into the lineart?

It gets pretty dramatic, but I'm not a big fan for the dramatic.

I dislike the colouring. It's rather dull, and not in an atmospheric way. It doesn't add anything to the lineart (in fact, I think it just hides the nice lines).There's little sense of unity. It looks like you're shading with a strictly darker version of the base colour? I think mixing a colour into the shadows would help a lot. You could also look into how colours mix in real life, but if your goal is quick colours to enhance the lineart/read, then just mixing a colour in would do the job, I think.

The general aesthetic of the pages is kind of offputting because it seems a bit grey and dull from lack of contrast in darkness values, it's mostly midtones being used, with occasional blacks and very little white.

I dislike that almost all of his comics are author comics, making it hard to find anything to review.
