Open Critique - Theater Hopper
Submitted by Tom Brazelton on June 9, 2006 - 02:50
My wife and I went on vacation for a couple of weeks and I've been away from my comic for a while.
I was working on some new updates and thought back to my time in college art classes where we would have weekly critiques of our work in hopes of learning from each other and improving our craft.
Then it occured to me that I might have a window of opportunity here to take Theater Hopper to the next level. Only problem? I'm too close to the artwork to see what I'm missing.
So I'm leaving the door open for a critique. What could I be doing better? What should I continue doing? Mostly, I'm talking about the artwork. Perhaps the coloring if you see opportunities. If you want to talke about the writing or themes therein, that's fine as well. But what I'm most interested in are things I should be looking out for in terms of my art.
I've done a little ego-surfing on Theater Hopper and I know public opinion is that I'm not setting the world on fire with my art. I'm always looking to improve and I thought this discussion would be a way to fast-track that. I believe getting opinions from people who are in the field and know what to look for (but with whom I do not converse on a regular basis) will be extremely beneficial.
Hopefully I haven't opened a can of worms, but I trust you guys to be respectful. I think everyone can benefit from thoughtful, constructive criticism every once in a while and I think now is a good time for me to be receptive to it.
Thanks for your help!
