I started trying to draw in Rich Burlew's stick figure style a couple months ago. Recently, I've gotten to the point where I can do a reasonably good approximation of the OotS style, so I'm thinking about starting a webcomic. But first, I wanted to get a few opinions about my art.

Opinions? Criticisms? Thank you!
They don't have mouths yet.

Needs more antialiasing. :smallwink:
(I also presume the size difference doesn't actually exist.)

Overall not bad, but you need more than just art to get a good webcomic going. You gotta plan this through. :smallsmile:

Your lines are very rough and I can see little spots where the fill didn't quite fill everything in on the sword in the first figure. Are you doing them in Paint? Inkscape (http://inkscape.org/) is free and much better for OotS style figures, as it makes for smooth lines and it lets you pose the figures easily. This tutorial (http://trazoi.net/tutorials/inkscape/oots/) is the best I've found for Inkscape.

That being said, I agree with Domochevsky; you need to have a story to tell if you're going to make a good comic.

Yes, I am totally agree with that. You'd better try Inkscape, it will be helpful.

I was using GIMP, which is not the greatest for drawing comics using vectors. I will give Inkscape a try. Thank you so much!

The outside edges are still rough, but I think that's the image host, not the image itself. This will probably not be an issue in the comic, as all of the image edges will be at right angles.
On the story-writing front, I already have about a dozen strips planned out. Now I just have to put them together *sigh*
