Uvayah's historie

I can't remember, were you looking at old pics of all seeing divinity or were you just drunk? :P

Either way, I thought this was neat.
From a book of art and astronomy through the ages I've been reading:

So that's one vote for png ando on for jpeg? :P
Personally I'd stick with gifs for any black and white image. Once you learn to clean the lines so there won't be as many grey tones, it'll look better and compress better than any png bit. See comics like Sam and Fuzzy for example.

I'll read through first thing in the morning, but I still had to give applause for the art. The skins have too much contrast and the bubbles could use a touch more opacity, but every other factor of the art is unlike anything I've seen in a long time.

twix for you.

They have their ups and downs. PS has better layer interface and options and I just plain like some of PSP's tools better. On my computer at least the smudge and distortion set all work much faster. PS has better batch process system and PSP has better compression algorithms. Really, if you've got a...

I'm interested. Haven't read much but I like the colorful style. What's the process here? What program? Prefabs or custom made stuff? The expressions are a little stiff, do you have them face rigged or mesh deformed or...? At least you rendered shadows. That's more than some 3d comics bother to do, ...

Someone's got to make a comic like this on purpose. The real point of the site will just to have a misc. art account, like deviant art, only framed as a webcomic, so that the site itself because kind of an ironic little statement on the medium.

He wishes it were just drinking and driving. He supposedly also said some things about the jews being responsible for all the wars (shady traffic cops they have in LA), and I said "histories" because his dad is apparently a holocaust denier.

I have to agree and disagree with the above. I wouldn't bother with line work, we need more comics without it, especially since it's so easy in flash. Maybe just a single secondary shading color will help define objects more. I do have to add 1 vote to a new interface though, as much as I like flash...

It's kind of funny, I think chugworth could actually use more nudity, but that's just me... Actually I think this thread could have been okay if the first post were simply presented differently.

There's already a minor precedent for the idea of balancing text pages with drawings here and there. The author of "Everything Jake" was for the longest time just writing out all his comics in narrative form. He always seemed to struggle with the art. He could draw characters well, but that's all he...

I'm such a perfectionist that I don't even bother to draw my comic. :P Well, back when I was, I would actually draw 10-20 pages at once so that they'd all have a coherent look to them, but of course I could only update every few months doing that, another reason for that one being cancelled. But the...

I don't think a character needs to be explained in the very first page that they are seen, mystery isn't a bad thing, but I wonder if the comic shouldn't have been pitched later. As fast as it is moving, very fast, if the first four chatpers are the intro then it's going to be hard to draw a bead on...

I don't have to tell you that this is just my opinion, but you might actually try lowering the resolution a bit. To me your comic is kind of straddling an uncomfortable area between hi rez and real lo rez. I'm not saying they have to be in the 16-bit final fantasy / mega man template like a lot of o...
