Your sense of humor is great, very cute. I like how you are trying to become a kind of role model as you said by doing what you love, very inspirational. As i was reading your art was getting better, i was wondering what art program you use? My favorite page was the page with the guest Cup o'Snark for the art. You should totally try to do more like it!

That all being said i know its your comic you experiment with so i'll list some things i dont like in particular. I like the actual comic and art but the last pages done with your phone (or at least i think both were by phone) felt very out of place. If you can i would suggest going into an art program like gimp (free) or photoshop (really expensive) and on another layer just cleaning it up by redrawing it. Also it is occasionally hard to tell the difference between characters i feel like a little color could go a long was in telling people apart. Iys a little hard to read at times with the hand done lettering, i would suggest using fonts like you were practising with it would really improve things.

It is very cool when your siblings take over for you, you should have like a special little banner for when they do.

Wow this was a lot longer than i thought it would be!

:3 Thanks!
I probably should've mentioned up there that I'm computerless right now ^^" My subs know that and I've already warned them that until I get a new computer, I'll be doing hand drawings Very Happy

Other than that, I use SAI usually.

For differentiation between characters, I'll try working on that. I should probably do some character designs for everyone since they were kinda of impromptu as I needed them. Thank you for pointing that out. There were some little things that I did consistently for each, but knowing that they aren't obvious helps.

I'll look for a font then. Any that you prefer reading? I know some fonts are difficult to look at or don't match comics sometimes. So if you know any, I'd love to experiment with them.

Ah a banner! I can't believe I didn't think of that! I made one for guest comics, but I don't use it for my siblings. I'll see to it that I make a separate one for them

Thank you again! All of these were super helpful!

Oh that sucks! i don't think i could do my comic at all if i was computer-less haha

I'm not much of a font guy, i just chose one and stuck with it (until this recent page where i used a different program and i couldn't use my normal font)

No problem! it was an entertaining read haha. Do you read comics at all? like regular comic books? if not i would suggest this latest run of Ms. Marvel

I like the hand drawing style, but I would suggest experiencing with color, and the font Comic sans. For that hand drawn look What I found for a great read is Understanding Comics by Scott Mccloud
