Improving Skills - Part 16 by BCRich40 Improving Skills - Part 16 by BCRich40
Finally! It took over a month, but was totally worth it! I even managed to fit every panel in one file. My computer almost died, because the original image is about 45000 pixels high, but it's much easier to work with one file than two.

To the point then! This is a really special part. It's all about experimenting new things. There's lots of camera angles I've never tried before. I tried many new things with backgrounds, and the most important thing with this part, is a new drawing technique!

I started to draw this with my basic technique, but I noticed that I need to improve it to get all new camera angles right. You shoud be able to see the point where I started to use the new technique. This is the reason why some characters look a bit... strange. I took it's time to get used to that technique, but it's totally worth it. Characters should look more normal in part 17.

Of course there is some flaws, like all camera angles don't look right, there's some stupid things wrong with backgrounds, and some of the panels look ridiculous etc, but hey! This comic is all about learning, and I learned so much while I was drawing this! It makes me happy!

And one more thing. You probably guess what it is.

I ask you to point out any grammar mistakes you can find from the comic. English is not my first language, so there is always something to fix. I'll fix those errors and that helps me to improve my English skills, and it makes the comic series more comfortable to read. If you'll point out an error, please tell me what is exactly wrong with it. It doesn't help me, if you'll say:

This sentence should be written like this

I want to know why it should be written like that. I hope you understand what I mean. Of course there is exceptions like missing letters or something like that.

If there's a lot to correct, please send them in note form. Let's just spare the comment section from huge walls of correction messages. Thank you.

Anyway, enjoy!

The last few pages haven't let me zoom in by tapping the comic.

It's amazing to see how far you've come. It's a gradual process, but this strip was where  it suddenly hit me and it really stands out.

The new angles, the shadows, the level of detail, it's phenomenal and the ultimate testament to practice making perfect.

In the future can you place stop using the word "buck" and its derivatives as some sort of fuck lite? The word already has a meaning which the show uses correctly. Misusing it only makes you look stupid.

And criticizing the authors use of it is making you look stupid, to some people at least. Think of 'buck' as a replacement for fuck, such as 'fudge' does way back home. This is a fairly kid-friendly comic, and if you want the little foalies to start swearing, then start your own story.

This is a hugely popular comic, and I highly doubt that the creator will stop using the word 'buck' because you asked him, however kindly, not to.
