Hey, everyone. I'm currently on spring break, and now that I have a few days of I'm going to go full force to get my syndicate package complete. I now need ten more dailies and a cover letter, before I’m ready to submit. I'm starting to line up some of the concepts I need to show in the next ten strips in order to give a view of all the aspects of my strip, but I have the meat of the daily examples already in place.
And this is where I ask your help. I have the ten daily strips that make up the meat of the package posted below. I can still replace some if I feel it’s necessary, so this is what I want you to do, Please tell me which is the best strip of the ten and which is the worst. Emphasis on the worst. Please, I am not going to be mad, in fact I will be allot happier than if you say “ I like them all” or “ they’re all good” because that’s probably not the way the syndicates are going to look at them. Even if you say “this one sucks” I will be happy because I will have an idea of what to put on the chopping block if I feel its necessary to add a new strip but don’t have room.
I have gotten allot of nice comments, which I greatly appreciate, but now I ask for any constructive criticism you have. If you see any spelling mistakes, or things I missed shading or anything, PLEASE TELL ME. Even if you have a tip of how the dialogue could be reworked to make it funnier, it will be greatly appreciated.
So I have ten strips below, which you may or may not have read. Please post something along the lines of this:
Best: comic #
Worst: Comic #
Reason and suggestion
Please give a shot explanation of why you chose these, or what in it could be changed. If you feel that a daily strip in this thread belongs in this batch, feel free to tell me also.
Again, do not be afraid to tell me any of them are bad. Criticism is what I need most now, so that I can change and fix to make it better. I will proably ask for more suggestions on newer strips down the line, but for now thanks in advanced for the help!
These make up 10 of the required 24, for the submission, although one syndicate is requesting only 18. I have a two strip series done and a few others that are not quite finished, but when I have more of possible dailies for the package, I will post them again.
Also, some good news not related to the syndicate package, I recently went to a banquet for the Pennsylvania 2009 Keystone Award Winners for Scholastic Journalism, since Ribroast run in my school paper, and I managed to take first place for the cartoon/ graphic illustration category!
This was great for the strip, since now with the certificate they gave me can be photocopied it and placed it in my syndicate package to make it look more impressive.
And again, one giant thank you for any help you give!
