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 donít listen. They either ignore the description and comment anyway, or they think theyíre being ďcuteĒ by being defiant. Itís basically reverse psychology. If I say ďdonít talk about this subjectĒ then that subject will be ALL that Iíll get from people.

Itís cute the first couple times, but after 500 or so comments, itís 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

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.
