Well, this is my first critique so hopefully I won't sound too unprofessional here. I also feel a bit awkward writing a critique on your artwork considering that you are one of my favorite artists and I am nowhere near your level of art quality. ^^;

Anyway, to start out, let me say that I have always loved your comics. But this one in particular may be one of my favorites in your gallery. You presented two absolutely lovable characters and told a wonderfully adorable story with great humor and a hilariously (excuse my unprofessional critique lingo) awesomesauce ending. =P

I also greatly admire your artistic style. Whenever I see your artwork come up in search, I always immediately recognize it as your own due to your distinct and extremely expressive art style. You present your characters in a very innocent and pleasant manner that simply puts smiles on people's faces. :)

I really can't think of anything negative to say about this comic to be completely honest. I know this was supposed to be a critique but it turned out to be more of a lengthy expression of my admiration of your work. :B

Anyway, in conclusion, you really have a magnificent and professional style of artwork and I hope you continue to make greatness like this! Now get out there and be famous, Mr. Awesome! :love:

Summary: I remember seeing this long before, and I actually loved the pacing. The art is like always: great! The coloring really brings out the characters and the shading is top. It's hard to say anything negative at this point, new characters in new comics! Already the boy found his new powerful friend, and so quickly will bring you in to see more of its charm.

Backgrounds: In alot of the backgrounds, there's a nice water color look to them. And I have to say, the moons looks badass. Overall, they are aesthetically pleasing to look at.

Story: Love the whole boy meets un-ordinary friend. The reckless kid skips school, gets into trouble far away from home and realizes he's in trouble, only to be saved by a creature who has super powers! Then brings him home!

Characters: A rambunctious young boy and a bear wearing the biggest red cape ever who is cute even behind his manly exterior.

I just love this! :D

Man your comics has something so special and different I love them.

I like the thing about the boy who donīt want to go to school and meet this awesome character. Itīs full of fantasy, also your caartony style fits very well with this kind of story.

Dude, we need more of these stories, they are beautiful.

: P if i had NOT censored it, i would have to by dA rules mark this as mature, making it so nobody over the age of 18 could see it and nor non member. and I link alot of folks who don't have accounts.

So I censor it just so ppl can see. that and if you look at the type, it is perpendicular with the actual style of the artwork here so.... in a sense it flows better with the art it this way. lol typography.

how do u make that kind of texture
Reply
:iconsynduo:
SynDuo Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2009   General Artist
: ) Which one? There are a few up there.

I make my own textures from scratch, I usually paint a texture with a paint brush and let it dry and scan it in, then I make my splatters and such into brushes. Sometimes I crumble up paper or leave some newsprint out in the sun and i apply water to it, so it gets water damaged, then i scan it in again and manipulate it into a custom brush.

But like I said which texture, each one of them has a different procedure.

It helps to know all the functions of the software as well the dynamics of having create a custom brush.
