Hey, Digital Webbing people. I used to come here a lot, but it's been about three years since I've been through here.

Here below is a very standard page from my comic--nothing special, no unusual effort. I'm not listing the comic's name, because this is not spam or a secret "check out my comic" post.

What I need is its pulse taken. How does the coloring stack up? Where are my color skills lacking? I'm not asking for anyone to be mean-hearted, but an honest assessment would be appreciated.

The one thing that jumps out at me as something that could use a second look at is the smoke. It looks very much like a wall. Without knowing the story, I'm left wondering if that is a cave wall or more of the smoke in the 3rd and the 8th panel.

The skin tone might be slightly on the "burnt" side. By that I mean it looks like you used the Burn tool. Did you use the Burn and Dodge tools?

Panel 6 and 8 have a nice skin tone.

Comic book coloring isn't exactly my best department; pencils are more my thing, but I think that other than that the colors are pretty solid.

Scott! Long time no see.

I'm digging it. Mainly because you are using a brighter palate than so many people use. Nice old school feel with some modern effects.
