Ugh, this page took me way longer that I would have wanted. I changed it lots of times, and studied a bit more anatomy and shading, it looks better now, but I have to know when to stop changing stuff or I'll never finish a page...
As I said, action is really coming in this issue, expect some tough battles for the next pages.

I think we all run into that wall, and just need to call it 'close enough'. You can take what you learned from this one and apply it to the next.

Yeah, I'm a bit of a perfectionist,but I'll have to learn to stop XD

Artists are usually their own hardest critics, just remember alot of the time the stuff you aren't happy with in your own work you audience might not even notice, or care. Doing a webcomic is a good exercise in learning when to call something done. I think it came out well in anycase

Thanks, I'm pretty happy with the result, it still has some anatomy problems, but I'm learning.
It's true, sometimes I get picky with the smallest things that probably no one will notice XD

That last panel is awesome. Really, you have pro-level art. I'm always jealous of how good you are.

I did want to offer some criticism, though. I know you ask for it a decent amount, so I feel it can be warranted:

The first panel is the weakest on the page. It's decently fine on its own, but the art quality is lesser and the man looks posed, not kinetic like he probably should be. Also, his face looks more cartoony and manga-esque than your other characters.

The other problem I see is in that awesome last panel--the redheaded woman (I am terrible with names, so hers eludes me) has a face that looks flat, compared to the shading elsewhere (considering she's up close, this is more apparent, since I know there is less shading the further back the characters are).

But keep in mind, I've seen pros make much worse mistakes (and I'm not even talking about Rob Liefeld here--respected pros).

thanks a lot for the critique shastab24
I agree with everything you said, in the first panel, he looks rather stiff, I could have made it much more dynamic. And Laura's face (that's her name) never convinced me, I guess maybe because what you mentioned.
Too bad I notice most of these things after I finish the pages, but well, that's how we learn, hahaha :)

Shastab basically covered what I was gonna critique. But I will say you probably meant for him to say "Huh?" instead of "Uh?" Otherwise, very good page. Loving the action!

Ah sorry about that, in spanish the expression would be more like "eh?" so I though in english it would be "uh?" XD

Looking forward to the fight scene. Excellent page.
I though "eh?" was an English expression meaning the same thing as "huh?".
craybest 14th Oct 2013, 10:09 AM edit delete reply
Ah, I had no idea "eh?" also existed in english, I should have left it the same as in spanish then.
English is not my first language so there's bound to be some mistakes here and there, but please always tell me when I make them, it's the only way to keep learning. :)

Huh or eh would work for this type of expression. "Uh" in English is more what we use when we're not sure what to say, like "um" or "er".

I had no idea, thanks for letting me know :)
