    This is going to be a little side-thing of mine when I get around to making it. Also, this is my first experience with Inkscape, so don't expect the best stuff around.

    Looks pretty good I guess, but I find it very hard to judge a comic based on the first strip alone. I'll reserve judgement.

    Just a few comments: the art could be improved a little, but I'm sure you'll get better with practice. Besides the kobold mouths, there's only one thing in particular that weirds me out: what's with the really freaking weird hairstyles? One guy has a weird shapeless blob of hair and the other has some sort of weird tower-like construct that must take at least ten cans of hair product a day to keep it that way (or possibly just an Enchant Hair spell). :P

    If you shift the facial features further to one side of the face, it'll make it appear that they're looking to one side, rather than always straight at the reader.

    I'm toying around with that.

    EDIT: Yeah, from here on out, I'll be doing that.

    Please point out any other artistic problems. I'm looking to improve.

    Unfortunately, I don't care for the style of the hair. I don't like the "straight up and twisted" or "gigantic bushy afro"; and if you are really set on that style, it could be drawn a little better.

    It's funny, but the characters don't have to look at the reader the whole time.

    The DM is a blatant ripoff of Failing Saves, but I don't mind that at all. It's very humorous.

    Are they dead, or just unconscious? X-eyes imply dead, but it would be odd to kill off the "main characters" in the first comic.

    The comic looks like it definitely has potential, keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the feedback. About the hair, I might change the black mop thing around a bit, but the twisty thing is going to stay.

    I read Failing Saves before I got the idea to do this. Then I did it, and I went back to Failing Saves, and I was like, "Holy crap! I copied this!"

    And can you suggest better unconscious eyes? I couldn't really think of anything, but I will change it in the future if you can give me any ideas.

    The second comic is up! I think it looks a bit better than the others.

    That would be the issue with the "unsconscious" eyes, yes

    From now on, X will denote dead.

    I'll worry about the unconscious eyes later.

    I started taking some more cues from OotS characters regarding capes and stuff. Also, speech bubbles will have outlines from now on.

    EDIT: Improved character model:

    Not bad. Pretty funny, great art, but not really comic-like just yet.
