I really enjoy starting out my day by reading dumb things people type on the internet. So thank you, E Hero Andrew, for providing me with this necessary service, rather than me having to go spend 20 seconds on Tumblr.

No, they really aren't in this sense. The feedback you are receiving is help instead of praise, because your artwork has been deemed to be worse than that crayon-monkey face on the Jesus painting.
If I feel like like I need to respond or defend something, I will do so.
Bravo! Good for you! Too bad everything you've been responding to or defending are terrible art choices, which are apparently backed up by "art teachers" who don't know what good art actually looks like, and horrible female character design to stay in "DC Universe character standards" which are also horribly sexist. Congratulations!
And most of you guys aren't "helping", you're just telling me what and how to draw my comic, and then get mad because I didn't do what you said. You claim that I have a stubborn attitude, and you are right. But you guys have an attitude of "do what I tell you to do or I'll get mad and bash you over the head with it".
Have you never been given constructive criticism of your art before? Being told something is wrong or needs fixing doesn't warrant the response "NO!!!" from the artist, it warrants the artist going back and looking at their art to see if they can figure out why someone else says it looks bad or wrong they can possibly fix it or determine what the other person is seeing. We aren't tell you how to draw your comic. We aren't telling what style you're supposed
to be using or where you need to place your buildings, but for the love of Christ man, you do need to come up with a more consistent style.
I get it. "Batman Beyond." When was the last time you watched Batman Beyond? Do you remember how there was trash all over the ground and rooftops? How there was graffiti everywhere? The sides of buildings are not the only thing that require attention when designing a city.
I don't give a flying rat's butt if you don't like the way I draw women. Their designs are MODEST compared to other mangas. If you want to talk about comics/manga drawing women sexually, then do yourself a favor and don't read Fairy Tail, you'll have a heart attack. Same thing with One Piece.
Well gg here then, because they way you draw women is like a typical sexist male who just doesn't understand how bodies proportionally work. Here's a pro tip for you, they way a woman dresses isn't objectification, because women can dress however they please. It's the shoehorning them all into a single body type, personality type, any other kind of classification that is the objectification. This is where you're not getting it, and I'm fairly confident you'll continue to not get it because of your preference in women, but drawing all your female characters with the same body type (especially one that is nearly impossible to have) is sexist.
Now I'm gonna spell this out for you, Pyra represents the 21XX America of how women are dressing more provocatively than ever before. It represents the cultural decay. The city also represents the cultural decay.
lol, you're not a republican or a libertarian by any chance are you? Pyra's costume isn't provocative, it just doesn't operate correctly in the real world. Her top would just fall off, or her breasts would pop clean out of it. Pro tip two: every generation has seen future generations as the embodiment of cultural decay. Nothing is decaying, the times, they're just a changin'.
The city also doesn't really seem to represent any kind of cultural decay. It just looks like building with some "urban decay" on them.
I'm not doing it because I'm a love-sick pervert. Her design has a purpose to the message of the story.
Sure you're not.
Eva, on the other hand, represents the woman of my dreams, and a woman that Christian girls should look up to (besides the fact of her breasts size). She's supportive, caring and desires to be a help to Mel.
So the woman of your dreams is an underground-fundamentalist-christian superhero with JJ-cup sized breasts who lives with (who I assume is her) brother who gives off this weirdly incestuous vibe, both of which live in a Hobbit hole with a old-man with a Moses-beard and an old lady who remarkably looks like she's in her 30s despite that she's probably in her 60s or older. Did I get that right? I think I got that right.
Look, it's pretty clear where you're going with this story. Atheists are mean and evil and have persecuted Christians into either leaving, hiding, or giving up on their faith. Natural Selection is the embodiment of non-belief, while Mel is the embodiment of Christian idealism and the two will go at it in the perceived nature that you imagine the two have always gone at it in the real world. This is a bad direction to take a story, and honestly it's pretty typical of Christian media to depict this kind of stuff, so salvage it while you can and change the plot you have laid out. Oh wait, I forgot,
I'm not making anymore changes from here on out. And thats final.
never mind then, just keep making this awful thing and we'll keep telling you how bad it is. We enjoy the laughs.
