How exactly does this look like feminazi bullshit???

Anonymous 15/12/03(Thu)22:53 No. 24346

Some chick is killing guys, looks like every feminazi's wet dream.

I dunno I don't understand the premise from these pages, the woman seems unpleasant and is killing apparently indescriminantly. Looks like feminism to me lol.

Aw come on.
I like Visceral better cuz it makes more sense.

I got too many questions about what's preventing people from making their own bullets and why energy weapons aren't being used if it's the future.

I'm talking like, tazers, gauss guns, sound guns, all that good stuff.

But maybe you'll explain it later. Ultimately I'm just not as interested in this one.

Jessica 15/12/05(Sat)04:44 No. 24353

I am glad to hear you like Visceral! I didn't even realize the thread was still alive. Thank you for reminding me to finish posting the prologue of that! Anyway, the writer of Whetstone commissioned me to do the art. Your curiosity about electric tech will be answered in the beginning of Chapter 1. ;)

By the way, the whoe bullet monologue is fucking cringeworthy.

Anonymous 15/12/05(Sat)07:19 No. 24355

Oh aight that's cool.

I didn't know it was a commission. Or that someone else was writing it. My fault for not enlarging the title page thumbnail.

But yeah hard sci-fi is kinda my thing. I'll keep an eye on it to see the comic pan out.

So far that dialog though. Damn. Nobody monologues like that. The only people I meet who monologue are crazy people and not even crazy people monologue like that.

Crazy dude I met at the bar last night monologued about how black R&B artists don't get paid enough. Crazy chick in the woods monologued about how kids don't appreciate her despite how much she cares about them. Crazy dude in the woods monologued about how everyone's out to get him (he's one of the smartest people I know, irreversibly paranoid though). Crazy Mexican dude monologued to me about driving his family to New York or something, far as I could comprehend.

See a crazy monologue is more subtle. Down to Earth. Hints of paranoia. Sometimes a lot of paranoia. Not the romantic stuff we got going in the comic right now. Hopefully the writer can improve the dialog.

Jessica 15/12/05(Sat)18:05 No. 24356

Thanks for the input! Helpful critiques are always welcome. All I can say for now is yes Tavia is crazy, broken and grief stricken. You will understand why in Chapter 1. The prologue takes place near the end of the story, much like the start of Kill Bill. This is a speech she had written beforehand to emotionally fuck with her target.

Here is the summary of the story from our Tapastic page:

"It’s the year 2052. DarkSky, the world’s largest technological conglomerate, has spent hundreds of billions developing a radical new spacecraft engine codenamed “Wavehit”.

The world will soon be sailing amongst the stars...for a moderate price, of course.

There’s only one problem: the technology has been leaked. Something must be done to salvage the company’s profits, and DarkSky’s executives have come up with the perfect solution.

Amidst a society in freefall, a heroine will emerge. Guided by a secretive assassin named Tilly, a plan for vengeance is born… "

Again, thank you for your input! :)

After seeing this page I thought it would be helpful to quickly demonstrate better values for the scene, mainly the last panel. You drew a nice background and washed it out with a grey haze, with some time spent on color correction and tone values you work can pop more.

The layer setup there shows a little, your base image just auto colored in photoshop, then reduced to 92% and merged over the original image for super quick color correction, then duplicate that, Gaussian blur to remove detail, then color burn to 54% and a mask layer to remove the burn on the characters you want to stand out in the scene.

Final page of the prologue. Chapter 1 will begin in February.

Your continuity is 'wolfed:
The body on the left has disappeared and reappeared scenes.
The table/body on the right has moved.
Spilt drink has disappeared.
Papers on the floor have moved.
Bullet trajectory doesn't match up with how she was holding it.
Mister scaryface must have been doing the crab dance to get into that position, while changing his boots...

The 'reflections' are shit. Get rid of them.

Lighting and shadows is not your strong point. If you're going to draw shadows look where the shadows are being cast and keep them consistent. Once you notice them the rest of the irregularities become more apparent.

Imagine what this person said, but with the best intentions and massaging your heart at the same time.

I did this one but I think the colors weren't adjusted very well, it took maybe 10 mins in photoshop. I would encourage you to learn more about photoshop, it can speed up your workflow and with minimal effort improve the final product.
I feel like a dork when I see peeps speedpaint incredible artwork, it's all feasible so keep going. Your output is already admirable big thumbs up.

Firstly, I appreciate all of the comments and suggestions you and everyone else has made. I understand despite how a comment is typed, the fact is that you guys took the time out of your day to try and improve the quality of art all around. Secondly, as for the Photoshop workflow, I am quite familiar with Photoshop. I have used it heavily for 5 years getting my Game Art and Design degree and that doesn't count high school or the few years after college. Personally, I don't use digital as much anymore because I don't get as much satisfaction out of the process. I like the tactile nature of physical mediums and take pride in what shows up on the internet looks almost exactly like the original. Be assured, I have listened to what is written here and remind myself to work on the weaknesses my art has. I'm not shooting for perfection but rather the satisfaction while working on this comic for my client. Thank you all for your comments! :D

How did that car get in that window? Did it jump? It didn't have a run-up and the tyre marks are perpendicular to the road so there's no way it 'swerved' up there, not to mention that low wall... ground clearance must be extreme on the front end of that thing. Looking at the wall the tyre marks go right to the base of it, like right in the corner, that simply wouldn't happen.

Unless that car has some kind of ridiculously powerful turbo-booster there's no way it accelerated in a straight line, popped a wheelie and launched itself into that window!

Basically, it's stupid.

Anonymous 16/02/25(Thu)13:33 No. 24416

Looks like we have a non-euclidean plane:
Skylights/exit alignment doesn't match internal view
Large horizontal windows don't exist on the outside
Kids window seat (3 forward of last E-exit) would give a view of the wing but does not

Also; armrests are messed up with no consistency between panels:
down up down
up down down
down up down

Credit where it's due though, you matched and mirrored the Halloween decorations on the windows amazingly, well done, still, got to wonder where the 3rd row of smaller window squares is....

Wah wah feels, if I wanted to read a book I'd read a book.

As for the car bisecting little miss feels... bull crap, you can clearly see that car poking out the window, so unless that cars a stretch limo or her room is 4ft deep there's no way she's pinned, and given that cars angle she'd have to be 16ft tall to be pinned by it, is she was the height of an average person and maybe (if she's unlucky), it would have hit her in the head...
