Your ability to ink is wonderful. I appreciated the way it was rendered, an outstanding job overall. The only thing that I found disagreeable was the horse's legs appeared too short on the third and fifth page. I was able to follow the story well without text but will there be text? While reading this I imagined spaghetti western music playing in the background. I enjoyed it.

You know, I hate it when I can't see certain things in my art that pops out to others. I will look into hopefully being able to doctor it in photoshop without having to redraw.

I appreciate you letting me know on the flow of the story. I don't like art that's too jumpy, And yes that was spaghetti western music that you were hearing. In about 3 or 4 more pages, mierda is going to hit the fan and all the action kicks in.
I really appreciate this helpful and considerate critique.

I love this - especially page 6. Your "scratchy" detailed inking style seems perfectly suited to westerns, for some reason!

I particularly like how you haven't overlapped panels all over the place, yet you've varied the panel sizes a lot. In fact, the only bit that doesn't really work for me is the big panel on page 9 that kind of fades out at the top... it somehow looks out of place with the style of the other pages... it may look better if you lose the border line on the left, above the building?

Anyway, it's a thought - love your stuff

Thanks for the crit, Jim. I'm going to play with that border and see what it looks like. I appreciate what you said, coming from such a great artist(I visited your site). Your lady's art is great, too. I do pencil portraits, too and she is very good. You have an awesome clean style to your work. And your women art is really nice. All over, very solid work. Did you see my post on pages 1-5? Here it is:

Thanks again.

Try cropping the legs with paths & use liquify to distort. Over all, they are great inks! I like the your style

I agree - cool stuff. That panel on pg 9 could be solved by breaking the hero's hat out of the panel border and let him stand tall and proud. It would work on a couple of levels for you.
