    Why did you give Dock the most delicious shade of green ;^; I really, really like all of them... Also Bandit (pronounced the same as bandy) in french means a thief, but more along the lines of someone who will take the opportunity to steal what they can. Sort of like small organized groups of criminals, it's very associated with the middle ages (dark ages?) and fantasy settings. I think it's pretty fitting!

    Aah you make it look so easy to use, though I know you knew the program already. It looks really cool! And the page look so good! The old ones were neat too, but I can definitely see the improvement. Especially in the way you set up the panels, a lot of thought went into that and that makes it look so much more clean and prof. ^^ I’m trying to create a webcomic on my ipad, and got Clip Studio because of the smart panelling tool, but I’m honestly SO confused everytime I open the program, because there’s so much going on! I don’t know how to get good at using it, besides of course “just using it”, but it’s hard because I get so overwhelmed and frustrated it makes me wanna quit before I get past the sketching stage. >_<‘ I’m only used to Procreate, and it feels a lot simpler to use, but I feel like it’s not as good to use for comics, especially because it has problems with scaling and rotating things without making it pixelated. I wish I had the brain capacity to learn how to use Clip Studio, but my two brain cells said NO.

    A few things: First of all, I love all of these designs. Secondly, why do they hate magic? I feel like Alastor would have some sort of personal vendetta driving him, like loosing a loved one to magic early in life, that's just kind of the vibe I'm picking up from him, but as for society as a whole, I don't think it really makes much sense for magic to be ostracized, considering how useful it could be. Thirdly, I think it would be cool if dock was less insanely reverential, and more clinical. Like he's driven by a lust for knowledge that outweighs his conscience, and he's really only in it for the test subjects, or something like that. Fourth... ly?, What distinguishes these guys' powers from magic? As it stands, there is no real difference between these powers and the magic of our heroes, and if it is magic, then why are they allowed to use it? I think a cool idea could be something like them having advanced tech, and maybe only Alastor has a kind of magic in his anti-magic. Lorelei could be pretending that her powers are supernatural or something to go with the whole idea of her being two-faced, and I like the idea that maybe dock just uses chemical warfare and his own custom poisons which he has perfected over a lifetime of human experimentation. If there's some in-universe difference, maybe in the principles behind the different magics or something like that, I'd be fine with it, but as it stands, I think that the villains' place as witch hunters makes little sense since they are essentially using the same powers as their sworn enemies. fifthly, I like Bandy's whole deal with only being in it for self preservation, and I could see an arc where he sees that the jury is losing and tries to worm his way into the heroes' group, only to be ignored as comic relief for a bit or tied up due to his inherent untrustworthiness given his previous spot as a high ranking member of the jury. sixthly, what are everybody's personal motivations for getting to the upper echelons of The Jury? As I mentioned previously, Alastor could have some personal vendetta due to the loss of a loved one, and dock could be in it for test subjects for experimentation, and I like the motivations for bandy and lance, but I think that every member should at least have a reason, and maybe only one of them should be in it out of pure prejudice. I personally think that Lorelei should be that purely hateful person, because she seems that way based on your description of her, but maybe there's another layer to that, like an inferiority complex that leads to her hating those born more powerful than her, i.e. wizards. This leaves only Diana, though you mentioned she could be a bounty hunter, and her just being there because she's paid to be could work.

    Damn, your old self was really bold tho, imagine being a beginner comic artist and trying out a pose with foreshortening and forced perspective on your biggest panel, legend. I do love the new one tho, it’s definitely way more readable and the highlights are where they should be

    I actually thought Lorelei design fit because her only black item was her coker with the symbol of the Jury (the 4-pointed star you put on all their outfits) and to me it represents how she's not what she seems. I also like the idea that when she snaps, her black swan outfit would have blue in it to show she's showing her true colors Edit: never mind the coker's white but I still agree with what I said before

    Just a quick little critique. Don't space your sound effects so far from the action. For example, on this page, I would suggest putting the "snap" right in-between the two pieces of rope. You actually had it closer in the initial sketch layer. Great work though! I enjoyed this video, and I hope you do more like it!

    Oh its so good to have you back. I didn't realize just how much I missed hearing your voice until I started up this video but I have absolutely missed your gentle, caring energy. You come across as excited and very calm at the same time and its just so soothing. Plus I've absolutely missed watching you draw.

    Dude, these characters are incredible! I would watch or read everything and anything about them right this instant. I hope with my entire heart, soul and body that you will end up creating some kind of a story around these guys in the end, because they are extremely interesting and I am already so fond of each and every one of them. I particularly like Alchemy and Doppel, I think they have the most unusual quirks and I just really like their designs, but everybody else is amazing as well. I know the set is complete, but I was thinking it'd also be cool to include somebody who'd not have magic into the group. To explore the magic-hating ways of the society a bit deeper or whatnot. Anyway, if this end up being a story, notify me by any means necessary, hunt me down like a wild animal, dig me out of my grave, please, I want to be there, I need to be there to see it happen.

    (This video was made 1 month ago but oh well! I have an idea-) Alright so, For Lorelei’s “transformation”, what if she ends up falling in love with someone on the team? Heartless’ crew decides that in order to find out information from the other side, to trick someone, and Lorelei seemed the easiest. For this situation, let’s choose...Flint? Okay so Flint acts like he’s in love with Lorelei, and the two, really hating each other at first, Lorelei falls in love with him. She’s never had any real love before, and feels like Flint truly cares for her. That’s until in battle, the team ends up defeating her. She looks to Flint for help, he tells her the truth. I feel like a lot would have happened to Lorelei up to this point, like Alastor and her getting into a fight (cuz he would be jealous) that she is so fed up, tired and broken, that she just kinda...ends up screaming into the sky. Idk just something I came up with.

    Hey! I've already drawn comic pages for a comic, but didn't realise that there was a "safe space" that I needed to think about, is there any way I can save the pages by adding more space? If so how much should I add? Advice would be really appreciated I'm in dire need of it!
