AAAAH!! J3T and Kiwi in the same thread..? *passes out in ecstacy*
erhhmm, sorry about that....
Anyways, on topic, I am one of the people hwo have been reading since (I think) May or June 2001...so I've been here quite some time, just not as long as others. i am also the kind of person who will check a comic every day, even if they are not supposed to update that day, just in case. I am also very much a manga-kun (so I live for comics like NGTI, Lang-Lang, and Megatokyo, even though it's not a furry comic). i am the kind of person who arrived at Genericon less than two hours before it ended because a friend of mine who went told me that you were there, a fact I somehow missed in the news updates, in hopes of meeting you (which I didn't, but said friend did get you to do a 'Gats sketch for me, which I will treasure forever. Also, your comic is the one that made me decide that I wanted to start my own. Now that you know where I'm coming from, these should be taken with a grain of salt..I'm hardly the average reader. First: your art style. In general..don't do a thing different. Having your own unique style is vital to sucess of any artistic medium, and yours is quite unique, especially with the marker shading. While I do agree with some of the points that the others made (ie misplaced objects, close-up faces but not much of the rest), I wouldn't have noticed them on my own. Again, I must emphasize the base style of your art shuld remain exactly how it is, or at least continue to evolve on it's own like it has since the beginning without any influence by the people on this or any board. Also, Penny and Naomi will still occasionally confuse even me...and I had been going by the eyes and bangs to tell them apart, unless plot gave it away in a situation. Perhaps you might pull a Josh Mirman and alter their styles of dress enough to limit further confusion..nah, bad idea. Anyways, that's about all I can think of...Like..someone, forgot who, said...if we have to nitpick to find anything worth complaining about, then there isn't a problem.
Oh, one last thing...bring back Kiwi! That also provides an excuse for more comic relief...you know, the switch-between two-plots technique?
