    Do you prefer humanoids or could you make an opossum?
    My obsession with them has peaked again.

    neck's a bit too long, and she's got a mild pig-nose thing going, but i like your sketchy lines and highlights. you made the shape of the jacket look very nice.

    I actually like the too long neck even though it is incorrect. Made me stop to look at it a little longer and decide I like it.
    Face proportions and so could do some work though - it's an attempt at realism but with the face you relied on symbols instead of what you see. With everything else it seems to be the opposite.


    @MashedPotatoes my overly paranoid-sensitive eyes itch now.
    Where else do you post your art?

    I think how it will be taken depends on tone. People might find it edgy if you go more for a horror tone, if you to to display things starkly, just as they are without any dramatic effect you might find more of what you're looking for.

    Look guis, I didded a paint

    I don't think I'll use horror tones at all. But I'm not sure if I can exactly call it stark either. The tone is pretty neutral and soft for most part and with specific things happening it depends on the focus character and its emotions. Any dramatic effect I might use comes from giving emphasis to the characters' reactions.
    The style I'm using (at least in my page sketches) is somewhat simple and round-ish. Much like these but cleaner; x , x.

    I'm probably going to post the prologue here when I've finished sketching the first chapters and inked the prologue.

    The best way to go with these kind of subjects is surrealism. It's a tone that makes people uncomfortable and confused and that's how those matters should make you feel.

    That might be interesting, but what sort of surrealism do you mean and is there some sort of examples you could use?
    I don't think I've ever tried my hand at surrealism with comics nor put much thought to it in general.
    I don't want to put the things that happen "behind a veil" much so I want to keep plenty of normalcy there for contrast.
    But as it is now, I could use surrealism in environments (in anxious situations) and dreamscapes, and during/aftermaths of more important phases. And maybe some backflash/recovery scenes with that as well.
    So that the world surrounding them gets twisted and weird as a character goes through some ordeal.

    If I were you, I wouldn't make it directly about psychoses. Instead I'd present something else as the goal of the plot like I dunno, winning the school election or some bullshit. Whatever, just something vaguely more concrete. Then you can have these kids developing and their psychotic episodes and shit with abuses and whatever as the flesh of the story. But I wouldn't make it the bones, if you catch my drift.

    On the topmost level it's about including a new friend into a group of friends and them getting to know each other with the new kid during their summer break. It descends closer to the mentioned issues along with that (ending might be all about their problems escalating, though).
    I should've specified that in my first message but obviously I didn't, my bad. And there is more casual friendship/summerbreak stuff (like a sunmercamp maybe) to it, but what I don't have to make research on, I like to keep relatively improvised.

    monty unfinished.
    Another unfinished painting, but this time it's unfinished because my teacher told me to put it aside to work on other shit. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it later, and I'll post that version then, but for now, here's this.

    This time we worked with glaze. I started out with really thin layers like you suggested @Maria M, but then my teach told me I should use more paint. :T

    Here's a similar pic for comparison(because I can't actually find the original pic I used for some reason).

    The first one was two or three days of stopping and picking it up again cause I kept adding bits and cleaning little things, the second probably took an hour or so, thanks by the way :D
