Okey so I get really emotional, these characters remind me of Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughter-House-Five and it makes be painfully sorrowful, yet, your art is phenomenal anyways so I thank you for that, you truly have a gift Mr. Phobs!

_ i don't like him there...reminds me on my teachers when I was young (but the chance he gives his student is nice...i wish someone had given me the same chance...-.-)

Ahhhh, the desperate but failing student. Every unscrupulous professor's bitch. The artwork is amazing. By the way, that should be "cards IN the workplace". And you wouldn't be "cocky" if you don't win at cards, you would be either "sour" or "bitter". Just pointing something out.

It's either the 11th or the 12th panel, with Ima looking at the door, it's my favorite ^^

What do you use to draw these with? it looks like...a sharpie and a 6B?
Emmy-Kun Featured By Owner May 29, 2011
I just love Immanuel so much - he may be dead-serious, but he's secretly got a soft side to let that poor student clear out the room. XD He looks so beautiful in the 6th panel too! I'm in awe!

If I could choose to have any drawing style in the world, it would be yours. Every single piece I've looked at (which has only been this story up to this point) is absolutely beautiful and effortless looking. I can't come up with words enough to describe how much I love it. Thank you! (and I like it when the old guy said "aww thankies!" haha)
Oh and I also LOVE WW2 era stuff, so the style and the subject are just making me swoon!

Omg, hilarious... XD The no-face student vs. the teacher's attitude just made my day.

Out of curiosity, what pencils do you use? And, if not pencils, ('cause, to be honest, I can' tell) what tools? Great job! :D
Phobs Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Soft pencils - form 2b to 8b
pandagirl820 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
Ah. :XD: Shame though, my art class only lets me use up to 6b. :shakefist:
pandagirl820 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011
Gah, that made me sound like a brat! (For the record, I'm grateful that I have a good art class in the first place.)

hi I was just wondering... what subject did he teach?

You are gorgeous! Your characters are so charming! And you are Russian so I can practise my Russian while reading your comics XD
Sorry for my bad English
The painting of Stalin is Hilarious...creepy...but still hilarious

Wow, now that I read this, Ima seems like a tsundere type of guy..

You wrote on your blog that Ima used to be a practical German teacher at the linguistics faculty, didn't you? That was when you killed me - a first-year student of applied linguistics - with the same comic strip for a second time XDDD
And, well... now I know the reason why I'm subconsciously avoiding the staff room and the counselling hours at the uni :/

I adore the face he's making right after he lit the cigarette.

haha. Dad was a history student under the soviets. half his class failed Latin, so the lecturer gave them conditional passes if they marced around every hall in the university singing "gaudeamus igitur" at the top of their lungs, having learned it off by heart.

that's...Ima O_O?!
animalker Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2010
I love the 'Why So?' panel. It shows so much character and is wonderfully drawn. < 3
ObloquyCondemed Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2010
He has a very similar facial shape to my teacher: Mark, particularly when he's looking unimpressed. I'm not going to be able to think of anything else when I look at Mark now, oh dear.
Enjoyable work as always, I can't help but adore your characteriseation, so many layers, like onions...
death2normality Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2010
Ima has so many levels now.. I love him all the more for it.
decembertiggerX Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2010
So... so cool! How did he become that bumbling dude during the war??
Amatheuz Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2010  Student General Artist
Cute^^ In any case I'd love to knew more about Soldier Side.
elvenspells Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2010
this is awesome:+fav:
deathsxaxgame Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Finally we get to see a side of Ima that is serious and intellectual. Yet at the same time, he's still quirky. Love it.

I have that student's very same haircut. I had to do the very same thing for my fraternity... coincidence?
one-winged-soldier Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010
I'm in love with that look in his eyes whilst asking 'how so?'
nelfalot Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010   Digital Artist
Hm... It's like a whole different side to Ima! You do see a little bit of it in the Soldier Side comics, but it's quite rare:)
Beautifully stylistic art, as usual, by the way:love:

That "Why so?" panel is just striking. It's the eyes. Definitely.

Great comic strip. Love Ima. X3 ~<3
