Love the humor in this one. Man! It makes me want to read Rocket's comic; is it available anywhere? Online? For sale at Borders?

Anyways, Very sweet. And you know what happens with big robots: Rocket kicks their butts, and then they have a great fall.

Being big never helped a Heavy. Or any of the Power Ranger Villains.

It just ensures that whatever you use on it will never miss.

Have you tried FontCapture for your font problem? It just might be the thing you're looking for: [link]

My gosh you are so talented. Please tell me that this future webcomic will have it's own home on the web, and not live strictly on deviant art.

This is the least user friendly place in the world for somebody to try to read through a webcomic.

Awesome picture, but is Rocket holding an invisible gun or is she trying to indicate that the robot is compensating?

You can make a font from your handwriting here:

This way it'll seem more organic but be a helluva lot faster?

I know what you mean about handwriting with a tablet. I had to do a signature several times for a piece and ended up using the pencil tool.

this is really epic. and I really love your colors, the red on the blue and the soft orange and purple! But, the word 'meh' just doesn't fit with her facial expression.

If all she was saying was "Meh" I may agree with you, but in the context of panel, character and the rest of the dialogue, it's appropriate. : )

I'd say "The bigger they are..." but that's starting to feel very trite.

Even more trite than something simple like, "Come git sum, big guy!"

(Have you tried making your own font off of your handwriting? It's like actual writing, but easier! Or so I hear.)

The picture as a whole looks great, but like pretty much everyone else has said, the bubbles stick out. To me they are too ordinary and plain to fit in with your picture. I dont know if it is because of the white background against the multi color background, but i think that maybe adding some color to them could help tie them in with the rest of the picture.

I'm not generally a fan of coloring text bubbles---unless it's a caption box---but we'll see. <3

:iconagentbill:
AgentBiLL Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009
I just think that there is too much of a clash between the bubbles and the background, at least it sticks out to me. I'm not entirely sure what would make it work together better, maybe a different style of bubbles or something along those lines.

Have you tried using the emphasis trick? You kow,, bolding certain words to put emphasis on them? That's what I do. I hate, HATE hand-lettering. Probably because my hand-writing sucks. Also, where is this set? Freakin'... cable and flag... city... place...? Lost for words. What font is that?

RocketShoes Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2009  Professional Artist
While a useful tool in lettering, bolding isn't really my issue at the moment. Just looking at how readable/interesting/cohesive the lettering appears to be in terms of the whole. The standard digital lettering is fast and clean, but not as visually appealing as I'd like.

They live in Harbortown. This is near one of the piers on the beach. <3
