    So how do you like it so far? Is anything unclear? Suggestions on art/story/title/other?

    Do you enjoy adding color to other people's artwork, so it looks "all glowy and shiny"? Personally I am dubious that such people exist but it would be great if one of them wanted to color this.

    Nice fresh style of artwork, haven't seen it done like that before. It's good.

    Speech bubles could be a bit neater, at the moment they look coloured in and a tiny bit messy around the edge, almost as if you used tipex. What program do you use for adding them in?

    Apart from that, good comic. And I like the sphinx in a hat, could almost be the title itself! I will watch this with antici

    Default Re: Title Pending: A Comic.

    I like what I've seen so far but personally I prefer my comics with a touch more colour to them. (You know, maybe just colouring in the characters, or the characters' clothing, or the background or something? Nothing fancy or really time consuming, just something to give it a little lift...)
    But we're only two pages in so far so for all I know you could be aiming for a complete art shift after the first few comics - this could be a flashback, or a prologue. Or it might not be.

    It's one I'll be watching for a bit anyway.

    ETA: On the speech bubbles... they are kind of scruffy round the edges, but I think you made the right decision in whiting those areas out because I wouldn't have managed to read the dialogue without them.

    Thanks!
    The bubbles are drawn with the comic, then I use Photoshop to white out the insides and type in them because my handwriting's illegible. But I will work on neater ones if that bugs you.
    Color, I don't want to do it if I don't take the time to do it well, but I don't want to take the time to do it well. Maybe I could "hire" a colorist to do that.

    ...And is up now!
    I work on this pretty much only during school, so I hope I can keep it up during the summer, although "I hope" is likely not the best phrasing since I would still hope that if I was just as likely to get it done in the summer as the notsummer.

    New comic!

    Somewhat inspired by the Lesser Finger Horror.

    It's a day early!

    Less because of the late one than because the last day of school was half as long.

    As the other days, that is.

    May not actually seem to be a day early.

    At least if you check here in the morning.

    This is actually Friday afternoon.

    Hello from the past!

    Woops, sorry, that wasn't the Finger Horror one, this was the Finger Horror one. Update on each day till Wednesday, unless I forget one day and have to do two the next. This is because I'll be gone for the next 2 or 3 Saturdays.

    goodbye from the past!

    Also I added am about to add Darn it, Photobucket takes forever to upload. I'll tell you when I add it.
    ...a "bonus" comic featuring the GuyWithAHat from XKCD. The alt text would say, "When the 'Paint Bucket' tool is facing the opposite way than I expect, I feel like I'm using it with my worse hand."

    EDIT: and there it is. Beware of Harry Potter 7 spoiler.

    New comic! This is the end of this storyline for a while .It will hopefully be continued. Next: Mark Daxter, Private Auror! From your end, does it look like I plan this stuff out in advance? Because I totally don't.

    New comic! The title is now officially Sphinx Hat, but how do you change it? I thought it was just editing the first post and changing the title box.
    I made a page involving a Sphinx but the joke seems stupider every time I think about it, so that'll be saved for an emergency.
    Hopefully the new storyline will get you commenting. Hint hint. That's not why I started it, though.
