What's the catch?

You need an android tablet, or an iPad.  Do you have one of those? Yes? Perfect!

On your iPad or android tablet download the free app Farrago Comics.  Here's a link to their website: www.farragocomics.com (they have links to the iTunes or google play store)

Once you download the app, open it up read free comics! 

I'm considering putting my comics on this app.  But First I need to hear from you. How does this app work? Does the quality of the artwork look nice? (not pixilated or blurry.) Is it easy to navigate and read? Any other praises or criticism? 

I don't want my comics presented on a crappy platform, so your honest feedback on this app would be very appreciated. 

Thank you! I look forward to hearing what you have to say!

Anime Weekend Atlanta Sketches: Armin Arlert by Shono
Anime Weekend Atlanta Sketches: Armin Arlert

More sketches from AWA!

I've noticed that Armin, isn't a very popular character in Attack On Titan. I can understand that as he isn't my favorite character (Mikasa is). But I say if you DON'T like Armin, then you don't like Attack on Titan. He's awesome.

Make sure you follow me on Tumblr and Instagram to see this afternoon's Inktober sketch!

If you like my sketches I have a giant book of them for sale. Over 200 sketches. Here are more details: BUY SKETCHBOOK

Hello~
I've spoken to you a few times before on here (as gianna-peels) and I've been following you on Tumblr for a bit. I just wanted to say thank you for being so nice and cool! Every time I'd get discouraged about my comic, I'd look at the advice and help you give people. It's very uplifting and it helped me complete my first comic. So thank you again for getting me through the tough parts of comic making :iconsmilieplz:

Wow, That is probably the best thing I've read all month. Thank you so much, I'm so happy that my words actually make a difference!
I'm very happy you're still drawing. Many of my teenage students sort of stop when they're 17ish. interest in boys/girls, jobs, and looking forward to college usually puts a damper on that. I was really impressed with the WarAngel you submitted to my fan art contest a year or so ago, so I'm glad you haven't wasted your talents!

I read the first chapter of your comic.  I really like the idea, I can't wait to see where it goes.

For the next issue consider your text.  It's not bad in this issue by any means, (you should of seen the first comic I ever made... yikes..)  But i think you can make the font a little bit smaller and condensed. That way it'll still be readable but you'll have more space for the drawings. If you're not sure how let me know and I'll try to give you some tips. 

Best of luck and keep on making comics!

Yeah, it's funny you say that because I went through a lot of stuff with art recently. It's almost hard to believe I'm still drawing.
Oh haha thank you C:

Wow, thank you!! I've been writing it for 3 years, so hopefully others will enjoy the story as well! :D Writing was a lot more fun than the art.

I didn't even know the text would be a problem until I started trying to add it in, but it guess that's how it goes lol. It was very awkward. The littlest problems started coming up and I just kind of went "ah well, I'll do better next issue".
Oh of course~ Any tips would definitely help, if it's not too much trouble!

Thanks! :D

It's tough, I didn't even realize I wanted to draw seriously until I was 19ish almost 20.  So you have a leg up on me already.  So keep at it.

I also like writing the story more than drawing it.  Not that I don't like drawing the story. But after I write it, I get pumped for the story and want to share it with everyone.... then I realize I have to wait many months for me to draw it all out. It gets over whelming at times, but it's worth it!

You said you follow me on tumblr? Maybe I'll type up a lettering tutorial in the next few weeks for you.

i need help. lately ive been drawing. the problem is that i keep getting the legs out of proportion (they are too short). any tips?

Shono Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2014  Professional General Artist
When a person is just standing there, (no crazy posing) they are 7.5 heads tall.

If you count the actual head as the first head length. The waist is roughly 3 head lengths down.
The 4th head length is in the middle of the thighs and the 5th head length is just below the knees.

The distance between the hips and the knees is the same length as from the knees to the ankles.

If you use all these measurements the legs should be the proper length. Remember the lower half of your body is not the same length as the top half. It's longer. 

and last tip: when the hands are down by their side, their finger tips should be a mid thigh length (the 4th head length)

Hope that helps!
