The artist offers a stylized interpretation of a problem that we all face at one time or another; loving cats but having them obstinately hate us. The only exceptions to this rule are those privileged enough to have cats like them.

The art style is visually pleasing whilst the turquoise hue creates a pleasing monochromatic feel.

The whole piece gives a glimpse of the artists psyche, reading between the lines forwards a reasonable understanding of the creator and their feelings. The sorrow. The shame. The feeling society tells us to keep hidden from the world. All this is displayed upon this canvas to those who would see it.

Also, it make pretty & look nice.

Thank you very much for the critique! You got the part about me putting my feelings into the work just right. I'm glad to see someone notice.

To be honest I was mainly trying to be silly and pompous ^o^

Oh well, I appreciate it anyway!

Dori-to's latest entry in the ever popular "Silly Lyra" series illustrates one of the artist's strongest traits as a producer of original content: he doesn't draw just for the sake of drawing, but utilizes his skill to deliver a genuinely funny story to which many of us can relate. The double punchline is supported by believable dialogue and utterly perfect expressions. Each page carries a new emotion, perfectly spaced with expert timing and framing. Backgrounds are simple, but sufficient. The positioning of Bonbon's head in panels 3 and 4 gives her an unusually pointy nose, defying the typical rounded style we have become accustomed to, but granted, there is probably no better way to do it.

As always, we look forward to the next installment in one of the fandom's most cheerful and uplifting comic series!

Sorry for being a bit late with accepting the critique. I was out of internet for a while.

Thank you very much for your kind words and insights! I really appreciate it!

This usually happens to me. Many times stray cats just follow me everywhere the moment I exit my home. Worse is even when I go to some places that I don't usually visit, stray cats just come to me like a bug attracted to bug zapper. I have no privacy at all...

Hey dorito, I'm about to translate this page, but I notice that you use black "000000" for the text, this was made on purpose or not? :v


And btw, this was a really funny page XD
Dori-to's avatar
Hi, no, this was not done on purpose and I believe you discovered a bit of a mistake in this comic. It should be the same dark green as in all the other comics.

And thank you, I am glad you like the comic! Thank you for doing the translations, it's great to reach a broader audience!
The-Luna-fan's avatar
You're welcome!
And don't worry, The translation have the same green/black font that you always use the-luna-fan.deviantart.com/ar…

Wait, wait, wait, it just occurred to me--if the cats think Bon Bon is of "lesser intellect"...does that mean they think Lyra's smarter than Bon Bon? :O:confused:
