So... I've started a second webcomic, and it's just in its infancy. But if you like historical fiction and talking animals, you might like it. And if you want to let me know what I can do to improve the site or the comic, I'd love your feedback.

It's about a Polish border patrol unit in 1929, and I'm doing it to get better at art. And to be a kind of prequel to a graphic novel I'm working on.

Here's the latest comic.


Feel free to check out the site and let me know what you think Smile

Thanks!

I really like the art style! I think the website looks really nice, but the image files are very large. It took my computer quite a while to buffer the home page and the first comic page.

I would really suggest taking a look at your file sizes and shrinking them down if you can. I'd really like to read this one, but the load times are too much for me.

Thanks, that's very useful input! I'll do some research on optimal image sizes.

I really appreciated the fantastic art style and the non-standard topic.

I agree though that the image files are just too large. If you save on Photoshop, there's a save for web option that allows you to play with different compressions. (Just make sure you keep a copy of the high resolution version if you ever want to go to print!)

I've re-uploaded the splash page and the last two comics at a more friendly file size, without, I hope, degrading the quality too much. Hopefully that makes a difference Smile Thanks so much for the feedback, CardboardCrack and MindChimera!

Hi again!
I mentioned at the beginning of this thread that the purpose of this webcomic is to improve my art.

I'm pretty happy with how the project is coming along. I wanted to post the most recent comic so you could see some of the improvements so far.

Of course, it could always be better. And I'll keep pushing myself!
