So Youre A Cartoonist -Comment by TomPreston So Youre A Cartoonist -Comment by TomPreston
It can be really frustrating when you can predict how people will comment on your work. Many times I know exactly what people will say to my work, so I try to subvert it by explaining that I already know and to not respond in that manner... but people don’t listen. They either ignore the description and comment anyway, or they think they’re being “cute” by being defiant. It’s basically reverse psychology. If I say “don’t talk about this subject” then that subject will be ALL that I’ll get from people.

It’s cute the first couple times, but after 500 or so comments, it’s a little annoying...

Well, there are a few things I love about this cartoon. One: The expressions. His facial expressions are great, very animated. Like Jon Arbuckle's. I love that. :) Two: The colors in the fourth panel. They scream "I HATE THIS." and the bags under his eyes just make that fact even more obvious. I love his *facepalm*. His facial expressions in the 2nd and fourth panels are probably my favorites. I also love the fact that this has happened to me more than once, it made me laugh. You are very talented. The only thing I would suggest would be to add forehead lines, to emphasize where the eyebrows come down/go up. All in all, I love this one. :D
What do you think?

I loved this- amazingly coloured, drawn, and planned out.

all in all, a 10/10 production.

the only thing I could think of that irritated me in the least was the fact that it didn't look much like he was typing.
His hands were turned in as if he were tapping them together, but the motion lines near his finger indicates that he's tapping them on a keyboard, but then it also looks as if the keyboard is too far away.

it looked as if, more he's reading over the comment, unless ofcourse that was your intention.

but I'm just being nitpicky, this is a fantastic comic.

I simply cannot tell you how much This actually happens to me and more than likely everyone else who writes it in the artist comments and they still don't get it!

Ouch! People can be so dense sometimes. I guess that's the downside to posting your stuff on a site like this. :-)

yeah..... telling people not to notice something will automatically make them notice it, sadly, I'm a person

Sheesh LOL, it's like when I forget my character Diatsu's necklace and everyone flips out because it's so important to his character and I'm like. If you had drawn him, you would have forgotten it too. (It's just so tiny and his hair covers most of it, plus my best friend draws him more than I actually do these days XD)
