Great take on Kelly's characters- that was an AWESOME comic strip. I like your takes on Miz Mam'selle Hepzibah and Albert --- "I love comic books and I love anime. Its kind of like being in a crack house with no money.- Samuel L. Jackson
The Pogo characters look really awesome in your style (especially Pogo and Albert - Pogo looks SPOT on)! Next time, among the other characters already mentioned, would you add Miz Beaver and the Rackety Coon Chile (I could only imagine how cute and visually appealing he'd look in your style!)? That would be so awesome!
Well i think the paper pattern is too big, or obvious. it distract too much the eye. but the characters are great! They're cute and well drawn no matter what you say. Maybe the porcupine would need a touch of color, unless of course its purpose is to be black and white. It always depends of what you intend to do with it. In this case, it could be a great concept too!
Oh and a silly thought concerning the owl : i wouldn't pick white for its glasses because in my head white glasses can only be sunglasses worn at the beach ... doesn't look scholar enough. then again, i might be the only one in the world to think that.
Anyway, all this to say they are interesting characters. The white one with the yellow hat make me laugh. A angry looking creature with a huge yellow hat ... awesome man, awesome!
Actually, your line quality is just fine and I like how you incorporated Kelly's little hatchy texture things. Pogo's pose works the best because it has the clearest line of action. Why do the characters tilt up until they reach Albert? This looks like it's supposed to be a lineup, yet there's about half a head between where Pogo's standing and where Albert's standing.
Thanks so much for taking some time for this helpful critique, Kyle Yes, this doesn´t look too much as a line-up because of that tilt up Oh, and that line of action sure I need to know how to apply them correctly on any kind of characters
Well, sir, I will do another pic of Pogo and will try to do even better
Qued'o muy bueno,pero lo que digo es que si las lineas fueran como mas elasticas o talvez corvas de alguna forma tomaria mas movilidad,ylos personajes no parecerian tan rigidos y ganaria calidad tu trabajo.No se de que te quejas porque te quedo muy bueno y para mi es : ...
Yes, I didn't care much for the story either, but Kelly was objecting to the way some of the characters were drawn. He was very particular about this, and turned down many offers to market his characters, and also was in poor health at the time, and didn't have the oversight on the project that he might of had.
Indeed- some comic creators have the gumption to ACTUALLY help with the adaption of their work, and then there are the ones who just do it for the money, rather than taking the mythology they crafted to a whole new level. --- "I love comic books and I love anime.

There's a story about Kelly sitting in a bar and some Pogofan walks in and goes over to him and begins gushing over Pogo and what a genius his creator is, and when the guy left, WK looked over at the bartender and said, "Did you ever hear such bullshit in your life?"
Wow, really? Yikes- despite being a comic genius, Kelly sounds like he was a douche, just like that guy who created "Ren & Stimpy" --- "I love comic books and I love anime. It’s kind of like being in a crack house with no money.”- Samuel L. Jackson
Perhaps he was just peeved at being interrupted. Kelly was said to be one of the best barroom talkers in New York, he could expound on virtually any topic you could think of. In later years, probably due to that activity, he gained a lot of weight, got diabetes and had a leg removed, not something to make one cheerful.
Jeje! Ya estás haciéndolos en la tradición de TVsKyle, right? Mi crítica es que no conozco a los personajes, asì que no sè què criticar. Concentrate màs en la lìnea de acción como su columna vertebral. Está chido el fondo de papel arrugado.
