Comic!

Here is a little 10 page comic that took much too long.
It's kind of based off of my 6 year old self and my life goal (at the time) to live in a lake and be a mermaid.
This is my first comic and it was a difficult yet enjoyable process. I definitely have a lot more respect for the medium now.
I hope you guys get a kick out of it.
Now time to get back to painting!

This is really great Laura. This is more than worthy to be submitted for publishing of some sort. Ive seen comic shorts receive awards for content half as good as this.
Good kids story, with a little harsh reality.

So good!! I love the warts and snaggletooth closeups on page 6. And the way you handled the dialogue was perfect. People gotta see this.

I love how you you treated the dialogue, it works so well!

You ought to submit this to Kazu Kibuishi and the folks who put out the "Flight" series. It's right up their alley.

I found this on deviantART and I have to say, I love this comic!
I especially love how you used the pictures in the speech bubbles instead of words. :D

FIRST! Congratulations on the DD! Your comic it's amusing and beautiful! Yet I have to admit that I feel a bit sad for the ugly triton. How come I've never saw you blog before?

Awh, sad!
This comic is so pretty, and a very clever use of no actual dialogue.

Nick the Hat said...

Fantastic sequential art, and the use of visual dilog is genius. You've got a very friendly and compelling style. More please!
