    My Comics

    Hey Everyone,

    New to this site. I am mainly a comic artist but work as a graphic designer. I put up a website for my comics that will one day get me fired and hopefully one day get me hired. So check them out, would appreciate any or all feedback

    I'll be honest, if you ever want a job illustrating comics or the daily funnies page, you need a much fresher approach, nothing on that site stands out to me as particularly good, clever or professional.

    I can't give you any more critique than unfortunately, since representational art isn't what you're after.

    Oh and, this isn't going to win you any friends:

    It seems like such a stock answer, and one that may not seem appropriate, but study anatomy. It will make you cartoon caracters much more believable in the long run. NO, I'm not saying make your comic art realistic, I'm saying learn how the body curves, how it moves.

    Right now you're simplifying body parts into shapes that don't reflect their real-world counterparts... and it shows. A better understanding of real anatomy will allow you to simplify the shapes correctly, making your comics much more believable. A lot of these (see: 'multitasking') seem sloppily done. If you want to make it in comics, you'd better be able to make your stuff come off as slick and proffesional.

    From a humour standpoint, they didn't seem very funny. Though, cornball humour is all I see in the funnies, so if that's what you're shooting for then that's fine I suppose.

    Yea, i would second what magic man said. Its not terribly funny, but could be slightly more if was drawn better. Character dynamics, proper anatomy (comic anatomy), proper prespective, clean lines, more appropriate and better illustrated emotion, etc. Even with all that perfect, the writing behind it isn't very strong.

    If you want to see what makes an awesome comic, pick up Calvin and Hobbes.

    In my opinion its unclever and poorly executed. Sorry.

    Some of them are okay, but most are just kind of cheap jokes. I guess though if that's the type of humor you're trying for then they are good. Personally, and I think the majority of people around, prefer comics with more thought to them. I for one haven't gotten into comic strips since the end of the Far Side cartoons.
