The mission of /r/Comic_Crits is to provide holistic feedback to comic creators based on the understanding that a comic is not just 'writing plus art', but rather a unique combination of both, bound together with elements of graphic design, layout, timing, 'cinematography,' and more.

Remember: Don't downvote "bad" comics (they need feedback the most)

SUBREDDIT DESCRIPTION

The mission of /r/Comic_Crits is to provide holistic feedback to comic creators based on the understanding that a comic is not just 'writing plus art', but rather a unique combination of both, bound together with elements of graphic design, layout, timing, 'cinematography,' and more.

APPROPRIATE SUBMISSION

  • Original sequential art that you would like feedback on (i.e. more than one panel unless that is the entire comic)

  • Original scripts for sequential art

  • Comic art with appropriate context (see rules)

  • Anything else related to making comics will be accepted in proportion to original work (e.g. tools, tutorials, blogs or discussion about making comics, etc.)

RULES

  • Be civil

  • Mark NSFW submissions and comments

  • Site-wide rules apply. This includes

  • Context is required for anything other than sequential art. This includes, but is not limited to: single panels, covers, character designs, pin-ups, etc. At minimum, 'Context' should include some information about the setting and genre of your story, and what role your character/technology/landscape/etc plays in the story. More information.

  • No spam-like behavior. Some posts tread the line between content and spam. For example, Kickstarters can be part of a legitimate comic project, but if you don't participate in the community, and you're just doing a drive-by to ask for money, that looks like spam. To prevent your post from getting removed, indicate in your post title that you are looking for feedback on your work.

  • Avoid aggressive posting. It is helpful to remember that this sub is populated by your peers. Although they may organically become your fans or followers, their role here is to provide constructive criticism as a fellow comic-creator. This is not the appropriate place to ask for "likes" or "follows", or to provide page-by-page updates to your fans. In general, please try to limit your posts to approximately once every two weeks. Reasonable exceptions, such as a second post to show a revised page based on feedback, are fine. More information.

  • TIPS FOR GIVING FEEDBACK

    • Please don't downvote "bad" comics. They need feedback the most.

    • Remember that the purpose of this subreddit is to give constructive criticism, not just blind praise (or insults). Please endeavor to write top-level comments with at least 50-100 characters of content. More information.

    TIPS FOR CREATORS

    • Link directly to your comic. As opposed to your blog homepage or other site sections.

    • Link to what you want feedback on. The most recent page if you're most concerned with art, or the first page or start of the chapter if you want feedback on the whole story arc.

    • Respond to questions and comments. Even if you don't agree with the feedback you receive. It's an important courtesy to acknowledge the individuals who take time to review your work.

    • Provide feedback to other creators! Responding to feedback in your own thread is the bare minimum of effort expected. This community only functions if people are willing to give as well as receive feedback.

    USER & LINK FLAIR

    • You can self-assign link flair after making your post.

    • You can self-assign basic user flair from the sidebar.

    • Use modmail to request custom creator flair.

    IF YOU DON'T SEE YOUR POST

    • You may be caught in the spam filter. Use modmail to get rescued from the filter.

    Is anyone familiar with comics/manga/graphic novels connecting dark fantasy with spirituality/spiritual awakening?

    Hey guys,
    Wanted to know if you're familiar with something like that, as I am in the genre and wanted to know if there are similar things to what I write, but couldn't locale anything when it comes to Dark & Spirituality combination. Know of anything ?

    Mine is Spiritual Grimdark Horror Graphic Ballad but haven't found anything in that genre.
    Let me please know of anything similar to it so I can check it out and reach to fellow authors ;)
    Thank you!

    My text bubbles often end up merging with the image borders. How do I break this bad habit?

    Pneuma

    This is the first cover of a project I am working on. I will share more details as I develop it. I am writing alongside the help of my brother (who believe me, is the saving grace). I am currently storyboarding, penciling, inking, and coloring everything myself. I will be posting more as it develops. Any constructive feedback is welcomed and if u have any questions just hit me up. Until next time keep practicing and keep creating!

    You can check my work out at.
