GUESS WHAT THIS IS by tarantellino GUESS WHAT THIS IS by tarantellino
EDIT: Hsdfkjfdsk I got a DD!!! Sweet Jesus and his holy balls I was not expecting that :iconcannotevenplz:

I guess I should update this in case anyone's actually interested in my comic, haha. Over the past year I've drawn 40 pages of Shambles -- a 9 page prologue, 1 transition page, and a 30 page chapter 1. I have the whole story mapped out, and it's going to be around 300 pages total. I hope to finish it before I graduate high school.
You can start reading on deviantart here: [link]
Or you can read it on smackjeeves here in a more organized format: [link]

I really hope you like it! And PLEASE give me feedback, I want to improve :^)
Thank you to anyone who read this!! //end edit

IT'S THE FIRST PAGE OF SHAMBLES!!!!!!!!!!! :iconstephencolbertomgplz:
I won't upload all the pages one at a time like this, but I AM SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW LIKE YOU CANNOT EVEN COMPREHEND

The suggester said, "This artist has an incredible story telling style. So many wonderful details and colors and textures make every frame delicious. GUESS WHAT THIS IS by ~tarantellino is the beginning of "Shambles", a curious story, and what an intro!" ( Suggested by GillianIvy and Featured by jcroxas )

Wow, your colors are brilliant and the way you tie the black shapes together is very nice. There's something pop about this, it reminds me of some vinyle records covers and some wall paintings, all around the 70s~80s, and I like it. You've done a great job with this so keep it up.
The only advice I can give you is to draw your page on a canvas that's twice the size of the final print version, so the picture can be reduced and offer sharp details. Maybe also think about keeping your number of pages a multiple of 4, for printing. Albums usually count 48 pages.

I wish you all the best continuation! The story you're already telling in this first page is strong and vivid, and you seem full of energy and talent as well, so use it as much as you can before your early 20s hit you (it's the worst age, you're supposed to be young and strong but you're ridiculously tired all the time).
You have talent, use it.
