So what do you think of this comic?
>>
>>78870528
I like it. The art is nice with some rather good coloring. I was more invested in the story before the revaltion at the end of the most recent book were it looks like things are getting real cliche regarding Mace and his powers.

At times I wish it were less fanservicey so I could recommend my friends read it with looking like a furry
>>
Any rips of volume 4 pls?

Furry wank with amateur art that's run for longer than it should, like all others in it's category.

>>78870528
I started reading a while ago and I like it. I'm not caught up yet, but the art is nice enough and the characters and world are interesting and charming. There's not really any getting around that it's a furry comic, but if you're going to be a furry comic you might as well strive to be the best. Its certainly not to the comic's detriment.

I read the first 300(?) pages.
I liked the eldritch horrors and wanted to see more of them, that is what i liked the best about the comic. The art is decent too.

The characters all look like OC's who either got their placement in the comic for winning YCH auctions from the author or being the author's friend, i swear i saw a green and pink cat with wings in one panel.
This raises the question of how species work in the comic's universe. How many races are there? How did they evolve? Are hybrids a thing? How much racism is there? Or maybe the author just wanted to add as much furry characters as he could in it. I honestly rather see variations of the same species with small or notable differences such as exaggerated proportions. If you can make humans look entirely different in a 2D movie surely you can with one furry species too without having too many races.
The high school antagonist look like a Lucario OC with a little bit of digimon in it with those arm bracers and scarf.

Generic. Would not recommend.

Nope.

Has this shit progressed yet? Last time I read it, the last page for like 5 MONTHS was when What's-her-face-without-a-nose-locked-away-to-avoid-embarassing-daddy (...Nena?) dad's girlfriend (cat chick with long hair) entered his office and told the workers there to clear the fuck out. Gave up on it since then.

You are referring to the webcomic.

Dreamkeepers is mostly a series of graphic novels, with volume 4 just released. You want PLOT? Read the books. Webcomic is mostly for passing the time while you wait.
>>
>>78872497
The Prelude comic has progressed since then.

The actual print comic is up to the end of volume 3 on the website.

Of all the things there are to complain about the art is the last I'd pick.
>>
>>78873234

the character designs are just bad, but besides that, the proportions, the perspectives, the poses and the consistency in general are pretty subpar.

look at the eye in that page you posted, they're gigantic and cartoony but hardly elastic.

It's a losing battle. If someone says the thing you like is shit, the rules of the game is to somehow prove that your comic is Sigfried. If it's NOT Sigfried, you lose the "argument".

Basically, the Quality Police's standards are "highly detailed, highly realistic, yet still highly expressive". Anything not like that is shit.

Arguing is pointless. You will never win.
>>
>>78873908
You're assuming he actually has standards and isn't just shitposting.

>>78873908

Who the fuck are you to judge art? Your lazy sketches are pitiful.

>>78873722

>dodging the point

There's zero reason to keep the linework of the eye of you're going to have the eyebrow cut into it. The turf of his forehead changes place. His neck attachment wanders back and forth. The back of his head disappears and becomes concave though the ears have not made noticeable movement. His ears open forward in panel 1, backwards in panel 2, and downwards in panel 3, but instead of folding they just rotate and crumple his skull.

It's a clusterfuck of a character model, no one should be drawing characters that look radically different from different angles at this stage.

Tracy Butler is s no brainer, does the same level of cartoony but actually excels at structure and i have no complains about her art(despite how sick i am of the coloring style after so many years, she understands how it works rather than going brown & bloom)

And i'm on my phone, suck a dick

Retort something about the points i made about the art first, instead of moving the goalposts. Twister can continue being the subhuman pariah he already is without us.
>>
>>78875577
She backed both of the DK kickstarters. Pretty sure she's a friend of the Lillies as well.

Her art is great but also takes a lot longer to make and you're really just nitpicking when it comes to critiquing the art in DK.
>>
>>78876449
>and you're really just nitpicking when it comes to critiquing the art in DK.

how is it nitpicking, explain how character model consistency is not important
>>
>>78876487
The model is consistent. The angle he's viewed from changes and he moves his ears but it's still on model.
>>
>>78876618
>>The model is consistent. The angle he's viewed from changes and he moves his ears but it's still on model.

no it's not. The ear does not have a fixed point to it's begining or end, and does not fold, it instead displaces to point in a different direction. The ear opening covers a portion behind the seam where the fur turf splits both sides of his face, but in the next shot it lands close to his eye and covers the turf itself. From a frontal view, his eyes behave as if his face is flat, but the side view has his eyes almost lateral and his head really narrow. His cheek turfs come off at different angles depending on the shot, backwards and down or sideways and up.
>>
>>78876823
I honestly can't see what you're describing. The shape of the head and it's features all seem consistent to me.

Everything about Twokinds' setting is screaming "magical realm," yet every time something potentially erotic is about to happen it cops out and shies away from going through with it. Talk about author cognitive dissonance.

I think he mean not as respected like being a Marvel/DC artist for example

He probably means full-on anthros rather than what Zootopia has. Like, half-human, half-animal people with full heads of hair, etc.
>>
>>78885280
They're all the same thing. They are all anthropomorphic. Did you forget the word means nonhuman things being human-like or having human qualities.
>>
>>78873908
Yeah, it's impossible for people to actually have an understanding of the fundamentals and recognize that a comic's artist has an excellent grasp on color but has comparatively lacking lineart. We're all just evul troooollllls trying to say everything about things YOU like is 100% garbage.

Seriously, fuck you and everyone like you, you dumb attention whore. People like you (and your exact opposite, people who take any form of praise as an excuse to scream circlejerk) are the reason we can't have any meaningful discussion.
>>
>>78871200
>Furry wank with amateur art that's run for longer than it should

So, it's like Prequel, then?
>>
>>78872610
Unless it's available in digital format, that's just where I'll stay.
>>
>>78870528
I don't like the way the author draws heads. I don't know about the comic but it seems like it has an OK story and the pacing is very nice. I really like how the artist chooses his shots.
>>
>>78890044
They sell PDF copies of volume for on their website for like $5.

Prelude is free on the site.

I honestly find the story in it too fucking boring to bother.

I read volume one, and then I got about three pages into volume 2 & I just had to put it down due to severe lack of interest.
>>
>>78891639
Volume 1 just establishes the setting and the characters. Give it another try.
>>
>>78893047
Not them, but that's usually a bad excuse when you can do these things while presenting an interesting hook. It's not always bad, but segregating the introductions from the meat of the story is a common crutch for writers who lack confidence.
>>
>>78870528
I liked it enough to read it all back in the day. Couldn't keep it as anything beyond a guilty pleasure then and I don't feel compelled to revisit it now. Normally I appreciate the juxtaposition of mature themes in childish settings, but this one had a style that was so aggressively adolescent I cringed to characters like the shark who ran the orphanage to pull me through. The big head with big eyes on skinny, lanky bodies kept most of the cast a few degrees from Sonic the Hedgehog. The chemistry between the four main characters didn't interest me much once they came together.
It's eye catching, it's creative in setting, and the story can keep you interested for a while, but I'd mostly recommend it to young readers who I know are looking for high fantasy like this.
>>
>>78894062
Oh shit, I meant a clinged to characters like the shark. He was the best.
>>
>>78880275
You wrote husbano wrong. Are you gay or something?
>>
>>78884901
>>78885097

I want you to sit there and think. Would you really want it to be?
>>
>>78894062

Same. I thought the story was great back in the day, but being a little older and a little wiser, I really have to admit it's got some flaws. Falls into the same pit that a lot of comics do with its treatment of female characters unfortunately, that and a host of other things really put it into the 'pass' bin.
>>
I like it but i can understand why other people dont
>>
>>78896111
Forget to mention: the autor is really based
>>
>>78895822
>its treatment of female characters

LOL wut?
>>
>>78895822
>>78896252
Again, what's wrong with the female characters in dreamkeepers?

You know it's written by a husband and wife team, right?
>>
>>78897937

If you've read it, then you should know how problematic some elements are. Lilith is basically a walking sex object with no valid development in any regard, and that's just to name one. Count the panty shots.

It's not like blatant objectification is the only issue in play, it's just one of many that led me to realize the story itself is only superficially enjoyable, contingent upon ignoring so many things that shouldn't be there- not to mention the things that should be there and aren't.

Feel free to disagree, enjoy whatever gets you your kicks, but there are objective problems and personally the story just doesn't grab me.
>>
post best girl
>>
>>78898275
Lilith is the smartest of the main five. The panty shots just show that Mace is a creeper with a crush.

Lilith, Namah, and Bast are shown as the only worthwhile characters of the main five while Mace has been nothing more than a living MacGuffin.

The story isn't about Mace, but the people surrounding him who will eventually use him.

Bast has been nothing but selfless throughout the comic and only attacked Mace for fucking with hismother's scarf
