I like this. But I do have to say that the character seems like he's imposed over his surrounding environment, rather than being in it. I'm not sure if it's something you intended or not, but it stood out to me.
Thanks! You are completely right! xD I've noticed it before, but after reading your comment it just stands out that much more to me. Definitely something I'll keep in mind for next time since I'm new to structural backgrounds and such I love critiques, so thank you!
Integrating back- and foregrounds to make a whole is not necessarily an easy thing to do. I think part of it comes from our language and the way that it causes us to conceptualise them. The word background implies that it is behind the picture, or the fore- or active part of it, and therefore a peripheral aspect. But if one conceives of them as separate layers--and of one of those layers as less important--as our language tricks us into doing, its easy to forget that they are in fact not layers, but part of a greater whole. That was, in fact, why I chose the word "environment" in my comment.
Keep up the good work, though; looking over your gallery, I think you have the eye and talent to do some outstanding work.
Well I know he needs to promote it, but i feel that someone else could do it for him, and he could make more awesome comics that would speak for themselves. And the more there are, the more people would spread the word and follow the comic. But that's just my opinion.
Okay, but think about it. Let's say you like the band 30 Seconds to Mars and would love to meet them and/or see them live. But instead, they decide to stay in studio all year to record more songs while sending a different band out to perform/promote their music. It wouldn't be the same. Yeah, we would love for alexiuss to produce more works, but it is by far in his best interest to attend these functions and self-promote.
In all honesty, I would rather them just keep producing quality music. It speaks for itself. But that's just me. Sure, it might be cool to meet a band/artist I enjoy, but their holding of my support is not reliant on them, but rather their products.
My point is that it is in the artists best interests to promote in person. Yes, the fans are important, but they are people that need to look out for themselves and do what is in their own best interest. I don't think it is being greedy, it is being a professional businessman.
