Finally decided to take a look at these. Constructive criticism?
The art is very simple, but that's alright - comedy strips don't necessarily have to look like anything, and as long as everything you create sticks to one theme, you're golden. However, since you only create heads, the options you have for characters is pretty limited; they're probably going to be doing a lot of simple talking. Which brings us to:
The writing. This could use some work. Because of your characters, your strip relies COMPLETELY on this. No slapstick, no situational humor - just dialogue. That means your scripts need to be frickin' spectacular. Try to condense your strip into three panels; that's enough for a setup and a punchline (which is all you need for the snappy one-liners you've been taking shots at). Cram all the filler in to that one extra panel. If you can't, you might as well go for more than four (but how many you should use really just depends on the joke).
If you laugh at your own strip, you're on the right track. Oh, and break the fourth wall. That's always good.
Oh, and break the fourth wall. That's always good.
I've tried to in the second comic, actually, but it didn't work out that good.
I prefer 4-panel over 3-panel actually, gives me more space to work with, plus characters can express themselves better. You see, this way I can make awkward moments within a comic - something that's hard to do in 3-panels.
This isn't really my type of comic, but I read them all. I went "Whoa" at the fifth one at the third panel, thinking it was the last panel, but then I scrolled down and saw the ending again. I think it would have been better if that had actually been the last panel, but oh well. That panel was good, though. The "unexpected" side of it was pretty original.
Now I'm angry. Let me get things straight, since you must not be understanding us well.
You can necropost if you have a good reason too, or if you want to contribute something new into the topic. I've been especially nice to you, Blackwind, but my patience wears thin. You've been blatantly necroposting in God knows how many threads now; you do not need to post in each old thread you read. Just because you signed up a month ago does not reserve the right to post in every single dead topic that you've missed out. I'm not just agitated by this behavior, but so are some other mods. You're getting to the point where I think you're taking advantage of the rule just to revive old threads for the sake of it; some of your posts actually contribute to the thread, but when it's measly posts like these:
WOW! Derrek has a body!
That are being posted on a topic 3 months old, you're crossing lines that were never meant to be crossed in the first place. You're under watch, Blackwind; stop necroposting. I'm locking this thread unless Quatroking tells me to re-open it and stuff. Good day.
