The proportions look off, I like the concept though. :]

BTW I love your comic. (Though I have not gotten the chance to read it in some time.)


Thanks I haven't had time to update My Fake Heart! as much as I would like to lately, so you probably haven't missed much -_-' and I became aware of the off proportions when I sat back and looked at it when I finished. But the due date prevented me from doing anything about it. My teacher loved it!

Cakeypans: I like the designs but I think you should work to adding more form to your characters. The look a bit undefined and flat (bloody hell I sound harsh o_o) I like the designs and I would like to see more from you.

Niki: Well I would like to see more. :D

I finished a caricature of Jackson today in art...it's rather interesting. I hope I get to bring it home and scan it. If I can, I'll upload it.

Thanks for the help! I'm not that great of an artist and what I have is stuff that I worked on randomly and it just happened to turn out like that. I'll definately work on what you said.

Hm. Well this looks good for the style it appears to be in. I would just like to see crisper lines to define the lines in a cleaner manner but since this appears to be MSpaint maybe I can suggest photoshop? I unno. ._.

I've been trying to emulate my pen-and-paper style using this tablet, but I end up caving in and going back to MS Paint. Cleaning that and this was what really took the most time, as I was trying to give the outlines a certain boldness to them.

I just got my prisma color markers in the mail today. I'm hoping to be able to use them since I've never used markers to color with before. ^^;

I need some tutorials..

I also got my manga set where I can start making manga pages for The Diabolus Stone! Yay!

I have a handful of prismacolours but honestly I think I like my chartpaks more. Chartpaks are more expensive, have less colours, and high odor, but they're also more vibrant and don't die out after being used for a background. -_- I swear. You see that image in my signature? The blue background on that KILLED my blue prismacolour but I used another colour for the corresponding piece that goes with it and it's still kicking. That's my beef with prisma, just as a warning. Do not use prismacolors to shade in backgrounds.

The coloured pencils from prisma are awesome though. That's what I used to make http://zillasenetai.deviantart.com/art/ ... -100843205 about a year ago. ;o; I still mostly use crayolas.

But back on topic critique this? (I know the socks are messed up so don't tell me anything about the socks plzthx)
http://zillasenetai.deviantart.com/art/ ... -117184633
This was done in crayola and some unknown brand of pencils I found in my pencil bin. Prismacolor archival markers (very very thin penlike markers) were used for the lining. If you can suggest better tools for me I'd appreciate it.

In some areas of the dress the pattern doesn't quite match the contours of the folds and it's a little distracting. And I thought you did the socks well, some of my socks look just like that when I wear them!

Nevermind the title. It was a joke on my watchers. Any suggestions on how I can make this better next time?

Let's see, um, is that a guy or a girl? I think I see one boob, but only one and if that's not a boob, um, then it's weirding me out. So I guess be extra careful with your chest anatomy?

I'm fairly certain that's a guy, from looking at the arm muscles.

You know, I think that might be a guy too, maybe Zilla inked in the wrong line and that's supposed to be a bicep? I've found that a white gel pen can be useful for whiting out ink and copics that go over the lines and maybe that's all that was needed.
