Damn, I suck at drawing open wounds.
…Uh. No. No you don’t.
It doesn’t look hugely consistent from panel to panel (but I only noticed that because I was checking each panel to see how well it was drawn) but the actual blood and wound’s very good. It’s jagged, looks like the skin was genuinely cut open with something other than an intensely sharp scalpel- a lot of people draw wounds as being very clean-cut which they rarely are. And it looks bloody and very, very splattery.
Very good indeed.
Aw, thanks! But I really had no idea if I should have drawn more spatters, or if there should have been more blood tricking down, or if the blood trickles should have gotten longer than they did from pannel to pannel (just how fast does blood flow on skin? Principally when coming from a big wound?). Not helped by the huge spray I drew the page before, when Bert was struck, which made me hesitate between considering it an artistic device or actually drawing the little droplets as they settled down. By the time the page was done, half of me was going “I wish this looked more realistic”, while the other half was going “should I even hope for realism? This is cell-shaded, for frick’s sake”.
Now that I’ve had time to get used to the page as it is, I’m tentatively satisfied with the results. I’m mostly wishing I knew how to draw truly bonafide realistic wounds so I’d know what I was doing when stylizing them for a comic. I’m just complicated like that. XDD
WOE! The RSS feed isn’t working! I just discovered this and I -definitely- don’t want to miss out on upcoming pages!
Whu wha? O_O I thought wordpress had all this stuff set! I know nothing about feeds or setting them up or– I-I’m sorry you missed pages ;_; if you have any idea how I can fix this…
You’d think WordPress had things like that sorted… This is the error I get:
http://www.fanelorn.net/SINFUL/?feed=rss2 linje 2, kolonne 1:
It looks like a setup error of some sort.
Until fixed I shall check manually every day, though. I love the story, most of all because Herb avoids the typical demon-to-Earth cliché — he is NOT trying to reform and learn to be human. I am also very excited by the artwork because while you are keeping it relatively simple it has a distinct style of its own rather than the stereotypical anime appearance that seems to dominate webcomics of a narrative nature these days. You have a great sense of colour and a very good perception of when it’s okay to “skip” on the detailwork to move on, and when things really should be extremely detailed artwise. It’s simply — refreshening to look at!
I’ve found it! It seems to have been one of those wordpress update mishaps. I found a code fix in the wordpress website, and it seems to be working now.
For extra fun, you can try writing rdf instead of rss2 at the end of the feed link. There are also rss 0.something and atom feeds available, but they still seem to be borked.
… Let’s try that again.
*war dance!* *mad ferret glee bounce!*
