Hey guys.

So, I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to illustration, so I'm PMBO (practising my butt off) at the moment.
I've just finished this storey and wanted to share it.

I hope you enjoy, feel free to post feedback!
Thanks

Very cool, nice story and I like the art style! What app(s) did you use?

The only critique I have is that the birds tail doesn't quite look right.

Awesome, thanks for the feedback!
Now that you mention the tail, I've just noticed that I forgot to draw it in the last panel!

I drew this with a pencil, inked, scanned and just used photoshop and a graphics tablet.
There is a great tutorial on boltcity.com 'the making of copper' this is basically the same technique that I have been using.

I like how you've done the whole thing without any speech or dialogue
Reminds me of that Buffy episode with the demons that stole everyones voices :D

I like the storyline and the way simplicity has carried it across.
The robot-squareheads reminds me so much of people at some places I have worked before :-P

I'm very impressed with how the graphics have turned out, there is a real style there throughout that has worked very well. I especially love the "worn out" paths idea.

my only comment would be the birds wings hang down more like dogs ears but thats it.
