What font did you use? I've found many versions of it online but they're sadly not for commercial use.

I'm a 16 year old aspiring comic book artist and I'm just gathering info about the best digital art program and what they're best for at the moment and was wandering:

 

What's better for colouring: sai or photoshop?

 

and what graphics tablet do you have?

 

And do many professionals still use tablets like the wacom bamboo or are the ones with screenes (cintique,...) the standard?

Hi Mangakadubkat :) 

You should personally go with whatever program you find the easiest, and then learn from that and become fast at it.  :)  I personally use Photoshop. 

I use a Cintiq 21UX. -- 

And the majority of the professionals just use the regular tablets, not the ones with the screens!

I haven't missed the kickstarter, have I? Is it still in the making? I'd like to participate hopefully.

I also think you could turn this into an animation...with lots lots lots of work '^___^. Well...it's a possibility anyways. The flash comic here is really good as is, though.

Aw, it's really not easy to ciriticize your work, if you put so much effort into it. It doesn't feel appropiate.
I'll try: I think the girl that is holding the metal bar has an awkward stance when she's hit by the food box. I would imagine her body more straightened and tensed up, also swinging the bar diagonally instead of vertically.
Moreover, you could have her head jolting forward slightly from the impact.

I also find that the bald guy consistently has a head that is bigger than that of all your other characters (in relation to the rest of his body in every panel that shows him fully). But that could be just in my eyes and then it is actually something different that bothers me.

That aside, keep it up! :clap:

Well, it sure gives an unsettling mood pretty quick, that's for sure o.o; For throwing some one into a dark setting, you at least also try to give the idea that it wasn't always like that too, which is nice.

Usually, it's best to make people have a happy life, even if it's not normal before hand, but I think this is one where it's best allowed to have people be stoic to what's going on at first o3o; Readers won't really feel the remorse of war but at the same time, neither will most of the characters in a setting like this when they're so used to war and killing XD;

IDK, I guess I just like how it's set up so far? As long as you make the female lead to be a strong woman as opposed to just make her more of a man you're gonna do good at the least, I think. Seems good so far in that department.
