Saw a Travis Charest Voodoo drawing, so I thought to use the pose. Sure it's not a trace, just the pose from a different angle.

They've made it a full ON business, I'm giving you an unbiased version.
I feel like you missed a huge chunk of what the medium is about, the DC/Marvel stuff is the least interesting aspect of comics: there is MUCH more to it than superhero characters being exploited. So yes, maybe you should take a closer look at comics. We live in the golden age of creator owned books, and there is more amazing content out there than ever before.

I'll be honest, as soon as I glanced at your pages I noticed that the direction was off. I "got" the page, but it broke my enjoyment of it. It took me out of the story immediately because I had to think for a second what the action I saw was. Some of these rules you break are rules of storytelling.
I'm not bringing it up to keep torturing you with this question, but from your reaction to this criticism shows that breaking this rule wasn't a conscious decision on your part. It made the comic feel more amateur than the artwork deserves. If you want to grow as an artist you should take a second look at it.
You keep saying that there are no rules and whatever works works, but we're trying to tell you that it doesn't work as well as it should/could.

Otherwise, the flow was really good, I'd be curious to see the pages with lettering.

Keep up the good work...

Well...hello, hellospaceboy. Thank you very much, I appreciate your concern over storytelling. I should say this again, there are really no rules. What we have here are guidelines. And here's the guideline from a book from Carl Potts where he put a complete chapter about direction- Doesn't matter if your action is going left to right or right2left, what's important is the continuity. Direction has a huge importance when you know exactly what's the map look like. The direction of action is based on navigation around the city I've located it in.

To your disappointment, I regret to tell you that breaking the Non sense rule was INTENTIONAL.

In the first 6 pages or so of the comic, I've kept the continuity as it is. The hero to the left and villains to the right. Until I changed the scenario myself, I kept it there. And after page 7, it goes in another direction through the streets. It is simple storytelling, I tell the story just the way I imagined, instead of breaking my vision due to anyone's lack of it.

Show these pages to somebody who's not a writer and doesn't know the rules. I can bet, he won't complain.
The problem with comic writers today is that they don't know the basic map of what's going on where and just work it out left2right,left2right,left2right. But if you have a perfect map and you know what you're showing, wouldn't you at least try to make something that breaks the non sense rule that got made just becuz of over-commercialization and lack of time in the writers hand?

Growing as an artist doesn't mean I'll have to break every physical rule I know IS true. I'm glad that you DIDN'T enjoy the pages.

Every entertainer is not an artist. And every artist is not an entertainer.

Like I've said before, I do not accept that it's a rule but I do thank you for the nice comment.

Here's the link to the comic- http://www.drivethrucomics.com/product/168570/Lifetime

Check it out. DONOT Enjoy it. and if you like/hate it, leave a comment or tell your friends.

Reading through this thread one question comes while trying and understand where Pramit wants to take this.
1) Is it done for your own entertainment or do you want to reach out to a wider audience?
I am getting conflicting messages in answering that question. In one post you state ďIím glad that you DIDíNíT enjoy the pages.Ē After that you post a link to drivethrucomics which is immediately followed by. ďCheck it out. DONOT Enjoy it.Ē

Hmm, so do you think every writer should create things for somebody's entertainment?
Actually, after that, I said "Every entertainer is not an artist. And every artist is not an entertainer."
Not Bible,not Mein Kampf and none of the most famous literature in history were written for entertainment but still they're being sold today, right? So, I'm sorry the answer to your question can be BOTH.
Somebody up there made an assumption that I don't know the rules of storytelling based on just 5 pages , so I told him exactly where else they can find the similar examples. You can go through them and learn why I shouldn't change my story just becuz somebody doesn't ENJOY it. Just becuz big companies with huge investments kiss the customers ass by naming itself "X"You, I don't need to do the same.

And lastly, go read the comic and then tell me if I should change it. Sorry, I'm just bad in business.
Thanx for compliment.

LIFE-TIME #1 pg.16
I once saw a cool Constantine movie where they wrote "Your time is running out to buy a new Chevy". So, I thought, why should I advertise a car company in a comic book movie. In my personal opinion, every comic book movie should have a comic book scene. Like in Watchmen, there're these guys reading papers and comics. Trust me, it's much better than talking about stupid unrelated hippie movies and music (that already make millions) in comics.
