Do you have trouble with the actual writing or the storytelling with the pictures? My trouble is trying to find the best application or medium to use. Also backgrounds are tough, If I could find a way to eliminate backgrounds I would be set!
Maybe he doesn't need to talk, it could just be someone narrating what Smiler does? I like to find what aren't my strongpoints and work around them creatively somehow. Not sure if that's good advice but it's what I do when I'm having trouble.

i like the tv show aeon flux the animation never had dialogue,it was kind of cool,i find some marvel/dc stuff is real corny and goofy,the storylines and dialogue are just corny,i like comics but alot of the genre is corny!
I definitely remember that show. Wasn't she like 8 feet tall and ran around half naked? Yeah my mom hated it when I watched MTV. At least I think it was on MTV here in the states. There was a lot of cool adult cartoons back then.
I like some Marvel stuff but a lot of curent stuff isn't to my liking. I like the old Lee/Ditko comic run. It was corny but also kind of quirky and goofy, which is my taste. Now Marvel makes all their people look like Pokemon characters, and it's really anime inspired. Oh well.
What do you think of the original Ninja Turtles comic, when it was underground. There's also a comic called Bone, that I've never read but I hear really good things about it. I'm thinking of trying it out.
I love all the detail! The expressions are really great; especially the smaller one's (which I'm guessing is Goo)! And the reflection of the droplet in that little guy's eyes is marvelous. I'm not sure I could ever have the patience to draw something with this much detail. McFlue's lips crack (get it?) me up ^^ Besides that, the hair looks great with the highlights and such. Very cool. I love your shading; it's really dramatic
Thank you so much! I'm really happy that I finished this one, it ended up being a personal favorite of mine. I think because of the interaction between the two characters which I'm not as experience with. I'm very happy with the turn out.
Haha nice one. I think those lips made him more interesting. Glad you like it!
I think you have the potential to be a great artist, you're just young right now. Many times people will develop more patience as they get older. Also once you start to get more experience you'll find it more enjoyable to sit down for long hours. I used to get really frustrated in high school because my drawings never turned out like I wanted them too. It was grueling to practice and to sit down for even a couple hours. but I had to push myself. I hope the best for you and your art, don't ever quit!
I'm actually thinking of being a tutor for a group that I'm in, where I help younger artists out with drawing questions and give them advice. I'll let you know if I decide to go through with it.
You're so welcome! I'm glad you finished it as well. And I agree, you've drawn the interaction wonderfully.
Well, that's inspirational. I figure I'll improve if I keep at it, but like you said, I'm still young. Although I can sit down for hours at a time (up to five or six at the moment) and even spread the work out across a time span of around a week (or longer if required), I'm just not at your skill level yet. And I'm okay with that I'll get there someday. Until then, I'll just write adoring comments to make you feel like the amazing artist you are.
Wow, that would be a really neat idea to tutor younger artists. I think that would definitely help lots of aspiring artists to reach their goals and feel satisfied and confident in their work. I'd love to know whether or not you end up doing so
