    What's your thoughts on the protagonist being the most interesting character, or would the secondary and introduced characters be?

      I don't understand. Are you asking if the protagonist should be interesting? Because fricking 100% they should be interesting.

        Nta but I agree, yet more often than not the "main" character turns out to be the blandest of the cast.

        I don't project myself onto fictional characters, so yeah, I want the protagonist to be interesting, and I don't like blank slates.

    About to start sketching/re-writing parts of my next chapter after I looked at the first draft and thought it was shit. Here’s some character design stuff for the next racers. https://www.webtoons.com/en/canvas/montana-sunset-the-hobo-samurai-/list?title_no=714929

      I've always thought your comic's style was really cool, love to see that you're still at it!

        Thank you! I’ve been pretty busy with building my portfolio and life and such, so It had to take a backseat a little, but I’m still chipping away at it!

          It's got charm. I would have read it, but having to get a tumblr account is too high of a price.

        I take it that's his birthday, which would make him 25 years old. Oh God, 1999 was a quarter of a century ago

          Feels more like a century ago if you think about it for long enough.

    Might as well.

    I'm doing coloured pages from now on, so read Heaven Forbid - or wait until I catch up and colour the old pages, I can't tell you what to do.

    Could I get in trouble for making a fan comic of a marvel IP?

      No. But you're better off thinking up something original instead of doing more capeshit slop

        I just like the Xmen....and feel they're being wasted

        • 2 weeks ago

          Truth be told I do like the X-men, despite thinking of the entire genre as capeshit lol. Regardless, I still think you're better off writing something original- making comics takes a ton of work, why not put that work into something you can own in the end? I'd encourage you to examine what it is about the X-men that you like, beyond the surface- level elements. What themes, what characterizations, what perspectives keep you coming back to x-men? Take those abstract elements and play around with them, see what you come up with.
