Thanks Helm, I always appreciate getting feedback from you. You get to the fundamental issues and you're not afraid to point them out, I respect that. And you're pretty much spot on all-around in your analysis, especially regarding the hands and what they convey (or don't).

It's funny you'd call them action figure hands (I like to think of them as crab claws!) since I only started "getting" anatomy when dug out my old He-Man action figures back in the day to see how muscles "should" look... Either way, thanks for the uplifting words, made me motivated to start dealing with this in somewhat more seriously.

By the way, are you looking at publishing your comic? It looks pretty as hell, but I - and I suspect several others - have a hard time actually reading and enjoying a comic in front of the computer. Something to do with hand-eye interaction I think.

I started with anatomy with a spiderman action figure man.

Yeah I plan to publish. If anyone'll have me, heh. If not I guess I could do some print-on-demand stuff online, who knows.

Helm, is that portrait inspired by Brian Despair in any way?  It reminds me of his work.

Another concept comic idea. The robot doesn't see the warnings and perishes in nearly each one.

I think I'll call it Dimbots. Not sure though.

Where's the funny?

The jokes need a catch to work. Someone walking into traffic and dying is not a joke without some sort of catch.

I wasn't familiar with his work. I hope no one thinks I ripped him off though heh
