This should've been posted a couple of weeks sooner but Olympics happen whatya gonna do? Yay us for now over 10,000 visitors. Thank you Giga, thank you Box and thank you unproductive hours with a laptop on a bus. You all made this possible.

I had to get a bit creative on this one to circumvent my strict 'game characters only' policy. Might seems a bit anal but I do an insane amount of world building in my head to help me visualise. Back stories, laws of the reality, which particular design to use, all that to get a laugh once a week, don't you feel special?

On that note we'll be taking questions about the comic and the world of Venatus Prime.
Simply type your question in the comments (no account required :D ) and we'll pick the best 5 or so questions (out of 6 knowing my luck) to be answered by the good doctor herself in a comic.

They can be anything from questions about characters to if the MMM Hospital has any openings. Leave a link to your site or Twitter or Facebook if you want to get it mentioned. Get to Questioning.

A bit of an insider's note, when coloring stuff, I have a tendency to a) notice all kind of weird character aspects and b) talk to myself.
So this happened:
"Why does Roll have such a figure, isn't she supposed to be a little girl?"
"Well, a little girl robot."
"Yeah, but that still has little girl in it."
"But if she's a little girl robot-"
"Still fairly young!"
"then she got the expansion pack."
And then I had to go beat my head against a wall for an hour.

The female Pokemon protagonists are also "little girls," so to speak. That's my reasoning. ;)

Guybrush, Box, thank you guys so much for this wonderful experience. I've learned so much about the game industry and developed my talents through this project, but most of all, I've made two very incredible friends. You guys are the best!!!

Comic or Die
There've been dozens of Dragon Ball Z games, so I don't think Vegeta breaks any of the rules :D

Question: Have you ever had a patient you couldn't help at all?

What are your thoughts on the dead, if they can communicate effectively? Do you need an exorcist on occasion?

I freaking hate surgery. I have been sitting on the toilet trying to drop some kids off at the pool for six hours now. It hurts. Nice comic by the way.

Both the art and the "joke" were terrible.

Care to expound on that? We can't improve unless you let us know what we're doing wrong.

He's just jealous and hatin'. I like your art style. It's quirky and different, and that makes it stand out.

The fourth panel was an explanation of the third panel, and you know what they say about explaining the joke. (That said, I'm not sure how exactly you'd set up a new third panel so that the current third panel would work as a fourth panel--you'd have to do a lot of tweaking.)

As for the art, well, I'd say the biggest problem is the roughness. Even your curved lines look like they were carved out of stone. (That said, you've at least got the proportions reasonable, and I haven't noticed any uncanny-valley issues.)

Thanks for the critique. Since I draw in pencil, there isn't much I can actually do about the line quality without a back-breaking amount work, but I'll dig around a bit to see if there's an easier method of smoothing things out.
Comics are great (Guest) edit delete reply
