Wow! Bravo. For what it's worth, your sense of choreography on paper is very good. Also, you have a very creative webcomic title!

Thank you, JM Matthews! I strive to achieve those things! Especially the title! Its hard these days when everything's been done already.

Great fluid body motions and realistic martial arts moves.

Thanks! I think the angles are very important. It has to look like it works. At least for me. I'm into realism. Not everybody's bag, I know, but I like to think its important.

Semi-realism here, maybe even a little manga-ish too.

Yes! The manga influence shows! I am definitely inspired by manga even though I don't read much of it or try to emulate it. The next page is a blatant use of manga technique with the action lines. But otherwise its more of a hidden influence. As for realism, I guess I meant more in believability, rather than art style. Even though the story is fantasy, I want it to feel like it could happen this way.

You're doing a great job on this action scene. I'm digging a lot! the first panel has a wonderful sense of motion, mainly because the horizontal lines are crossing the vertical one in the center of the image. Wonderful! The depth of the third panel is awesome too, with the foreground, middle and background rule.

Thanks! I'm not sure what you're talking about with rules and such. I just go on instinct. Your critique is invaluable to helping me learn! I will take note!

Wow, your instincts are good! You've an inborn talent for drawing.
It's just a composition analysis :) People always talk about Loomis, but in the University we learn with W├Âlfflin and Arnheim.

Very nice bit of motion and dynamism!

Thank you! It can get a little confusing trying to keep it all flowing. But I don't want the camera angle to always come from the same direction.
