Tower of Turtles Webcomic... now with extra turtles

Postby towerofturtles » Thu Jan 15, 2009 6:41 am UTC

Amateur comics. The internet just doesn't have enough. Go check out mine. Click around, enjoy, post 'first' in the comments section etc.

http://WWW.TOWEROFTURTLES.COM

Featuring comics about politics, the environment, spiderman, turtles...

If you visit right now you can see the cover to Marvel's much talked-about Barack Obama Spider-man comic. Bam!

Anyone have any thoughts? Any feedback would be much appreciated. Cheers.

I like this one. It's just rough enough around the edges to be full of personality. Love the little touches (like a congressman beating the Earth with a chair or butterflies exploding with rage). It's turning out to be a suitably dense, enjoyable webcomic.

Do you scan the images in super-high resolution and then color them in with Photoshop the way I do?

Hey thanks for that, appreciate it. Specifically that's Kevin Rudd, the Australian Prime Minister, that is pummeling the Earth. ;)

I've actually been drawing and colouring them straight in using a graphics tablet, but I'm thinking I may switch to drawing with ink (which I think is much easier) and then colouring in photoshop.

Cheers

Update, dagnabbit! You had a good thing going. (Honestly I wasn't crazy about the Obama political cartoon, but everything else was great!

You could do a weekly, easily. I don't know how busy you are but you definitely have the chutzpah and skills to get a following.

I like how the turtles smile when you mouse over them.

I love your comics and hope you will continue to add more! You have a very personal style, both in your style of humor and your drawings. The combination of 'lol-turtles' fun and the savvy and engaging intellectual comedy works great for me.
