Awsome stuff. I like the first and last pictures the best. You look like a gen13 fan, just by looking at your characters. I like it. Keep up the good work. Hope to see some more posts soon.

Aw man! These are fuckin' stellar Seth! Heh, that guy with the sideburns 4th page up looks a lot like me. Craziness... or maybe I just look like a cartoon character.
Anway, you've got really nice attitude and life in your sketches. I'm assuming those are self portraits at the top? They're awesome. I love the exageration in them, it's working so damn well. I don't really have any crits. I love that little drawing of the guy holding his fists up in the first post, 2nd to last page. Man your understanding of form and light is so refreshing to see, and of course the animated/cartoon style is always a major plus in my eyes. Plus, you're in SF, and that's infinately cooler than being in L.A. in almost all respects. I'm from Santa Rosa... Nor Cal till I die.
Anyway, can't wait to see more. Peace out man!
One more thing! Your girls are pretty damn cute

wow, great stuff, i dig how you capture a rendered image along with that cartoonish style in your self portrait series up there. are those from reference? i'm assuming at least a few are based on the crazy expressions in them. The "long face" SP is probably my favorite, it's comical and beautiful...
and the big lipped girl below is almost nauxiously good, in kind of a Ren and Stimpy sort of way. i'd like to see a short comic strip with your style, assuming you are funny

the first set of heads are great
the clean and soft shading gives it a great feel

Really good drawings. I like a lot the first set of heads. I guess auto portraits? I don't like only the martial artist (the 5th picture). His spine looks quite unnaturally curved. Nobody who knows how to fight would bend like this (this is pure loss of energy). His wrist is also bended, he certainly will hurt his wrist if he punches that way.

cool characters, they have a lot of personality. The self portrait is great, its totally different than the cartoon ones. I dunno what to critic, just keep drawing?

Daniel - I'm honored to hear such positive input from someone as talented as you, thanks bro! ...lets hear it for nor cal and the hot and inspiring women i see on a daily basis! ahh, refreshing
Gregory - I actually never use picture referances. I have this thing about it. I feel guilty. Like I'm cheating, know what I mean? When theres no way around it, I am sure to note it but would rather not have to if at all possible. As for the self portraits at the top, they were done the old school way, a mirror. I've noticed that most artists I've met have a very cartoon-like set of facial expressions. those are a sample of mine. believe it or not I actually look like that! as for a comic strip, scroll down to the bottom. not quite what you asked for but what I'm screwing with now.
ivan.R - ha, true true. its all in good fun. i actually taught Taekwondo for five years. this shot is just a doodle turn sketch. its more for aesthetic appeal. i'll have to redo that one correctly and use my knowledge of fighting to my advantage. thanks, the ideas are comming!
wow, thanks everyone for the input. i appreciate everyones comments
okay! update time! next are some storyboards i threw together in two nights between classes so i know the rendering sucks and detail has quite a bit to be desired. i used a few cheap tricks to get her done. these are quite rough so i know the technical issues.
i'm doing an animatic for it in after effects this weekend. i have a surprise ending i haven't finished yet as well. without it, its kinda lame but once introduced, will finish strongly.
i'd like some input as to the camera angles via the building of tension if anyones up for suggestions. must have them in within the next two days though. i'm diving into it soon.

yea, i feel the same way about references, especially since i still have to learn so much...
a question about your last post... i'm assuming that you'll use the black boxes as the frame(camera) and the arrows deliniate motion, but are you going to draw each frame or do vectors and then animate those?
