sorry man, these were 10 pages done for fun to 'stay creative' during my stint in the military. Glad you're interested though!! Perhaps some day :D

i love how you use few lines to express/show so much... like the character in the last panel...
i also like how its colored, like a "finished sketch"...
ashley wood does it that way too, but yours has a really great feel to it

aghhhh! youre such an inspiring artist! im trying to get down that black-and-white speedpainting to do a comic of my own now. =D

How long, on average, does each one of those pages take?

whoa, thats great. You seem to have a pretty prestigeous job, and at the age of like....21? That's pretty rare for the whole art crowd. And even on the off chance that it DOESNT pay much, you DO enjoy it, right?

i just want a job that i look forward to everyday and can make a decent living on.
anyhow, thanks for the reply! im gonna try to do at least 2 speedpaintings a day. (and work on action poses)

The new style is really interesting - I like it in a weird way. Although I'm used to your more detailed approach, I like the way this one emphasizes movement and shadow. It gives a basic outline to which the viewer can fill in the other details in their mind.

Also the treatment of the pacing is excellent. The last panel really grabs the reader's attention and makes them jump at the chance to see what the guy does with the trigger. I can't wait to see what you do next!

I love how you've done this. The fact that it looks very empty gives it a really surreal and wodnerful feeling. the way you did the last 3 panls really are amazing as there aren't so many lines yet there's tone to fill it it. It's brilliant how you've done this! Motovates me forward!

I'm totally bemused as to the story, but it has guys killing eachother, so it can't be too hard to figure out eh? :D

Anyway, just a bit confused as to the motion the character in the first panel is going through, is he sort of flipping over his mate and then flipping into cover?...if that makes sense...anyway, if you, or someoneelse, could explain the motion that'd be cool :)

I also meant to mention that I like the feel of the last three frames, the whole page almost looks like it's done with marker, but that feeling is especially strong in those bottom frames.

Out of curiosity, how far are you taking this project?

Batman? :D

While the relative lack of detail is apparent, and they may not be consistent on this page, but I challenge anyone to say that this isn't obviously your work, and part of this ongoing experimention as well.

The best comics out there don't have the same consistency through the whole volume, they're dynamic. Sometimes to keep the reader interested you've got to catch them off guard, change things a little, even things they might not like.

Dynamic comics are hard to pull of well -and you're right!

The works i enjoy most tend to shock and awe or disgust, but the bittersweet moments are what make them endearing.

Its like following the process at its most raw to its most refined stage. Its quite 'rewarding' to read the piece to its end.

more prominent lineart style this time i see :D personally i really like the top left panel; the angle, pose and bolder lines bring it to life, but im not too sure about the bottom three panels, they look a little messy an bland :S
but hey if you don't experiment you won't get far so keep it up :D

Tadaam !
Batman-man has rescued dead smoking diver.
Now it's mourining time.

On the other side of the wall evul guy got mad and is going to use his uber marksman skills to mutilate the Batman-man.

What's going to happen next ?
Watch T7YW on UK-TV to find out !

I really love you for churning new pages so fast.
The only thing I hate about webcomics is the wait. With you there is no wait, which is great.

It must be some unconscious-rhyming-module in my head, since I didn't even plan for it to rhyme :)

And dude ! I'm going to be included in a comic xD

Or it could be a rap :)
