I like the detail in the epipale's eye, it has that softness you'd see in a gentle giant. Holding onto the fin like that, there'd be a lot of momentum going on, so I imagine it would be difficult to keep a hold on it. With the upward and downward motion of a fin, that likely would show in his posture, curving the line of his profile. Doing this wouldn't just add motion to the piece, but would also loosen up his posture. I like the distinct blue cast of the shadows here, it harmonizes the piece with the marine environment.
That and it wasn't fully native. You picked a resolution to screen tone at and that was you perma-locked for the rest of the picture. No resizing the screen tone resolution. To add text I had to use illustrator, then import back, but if I didn't import right it imported as a mid tone grey. Then I had to make sure the printer didn't resize it or attack of moire. And Mangastudio 1 you needed to manually tell it hey I'm using a new tone and that took me ages to figure out. It wasn't intuitive. Clipstudio it's all native so it resizes on the go and, you have easy vector tools for text and panels, and text auto centers and remembers previous settings etc... so good. Makes the process so easy <3
Right?! I remember when it was even more primitive, waaaay back in the days when it all started. And that was it! We either had that as an option, or scanned screentones, or heaven forfend actual real-life physical screentone! Which, let me just say for the benefit of anyone who didn't have the experience, were a nightmare! Clip Studio is like a luxury limousine by comparison.
If you wouldn't mind, I love good critique. I have some pages in the comic section here, some are pretty old but others are somewhat recent, I'll drop a link to make it easy. https://www.paperdemon.com/comics/about/534
I use a colored approach to pages, it appeals to me more than grey-scale (coloring is my favorite part of art, probably not a coincidence).
