EFFIGIES - Dwarfy Fantasy webcomic [DEAD]

OKAY. Some guys from the creative projects forum suggested I make a thread about mah webcomic, apparently it has a few fans among the bay12games community. So what I'm basically doing here is asking for critique, suggestions, and other things from this creative community.

As well, I will be posting information about the events of Effigies here before I post the page on smackjeeves, so I can recieve advanced suggestions on what works, what doesn't work, and anything else you think I should consider.

I can also answer any questions you have about the Plot, Characters, and world of Effigies, so long as it doesn't spoil too much.

I really like it.
I read it 2 days ago.

I wish it would continue actually.

Good on you for making this topic, I don't often bother reading signatures and probably wouldn't have noticed this for a long time...

I like it. The (presumably) main characters already have some personality, the world is a little vague, but it's still early yet. I laughed at the circumflex part.

I will be keeping up with this.

the world is a little vague

Hmm. I'm thinking about revealing world information slowly and gradually in the comic, but I suppose I can put out a little more information on this forum thread. Here I go:

...

I'm gonna pretend you asked how you could help, instead of how you could not.
anyway, I'm having a few problems with the World timeline; as you can see, none of the events are tied to years or dates. If you think you can write a better, more concise timeline than that, then I could send you a more detailed run-down of the planned plot history (obviously this will spoil some of the plot, but I'm sure you're good with that) and you could work something out of that.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I was trying to say that since you're such a promising artist, how could I refuse to help?

Sure, I'll look at it. I'll see what I can do about making it more concise, or canonically stable with the dates at the very least.

I like the Tower of Babel reference right at the start though.

Cuase I'm still gonna do that, at some point.

Woah, this is awesome! I've seen the few of these you posted on the forum some time ago but I didn't know there was more! Bokmarked and RSS'd, I'll be following this closely!

The new page is up.
It's pretty much a continuation of the last page's conversation, but it also introduces the first obstacle in the adventure. Which is Kobolds. You gotta start small, you know.

I'm thinking of changing the face in the bottom middle panel. It just doesn't look enough like an elf.

not really. Josef's belief in these creatures is supposed to show that he is naive, and likes getting attention. Rather childish behaviour.

As for the name, its actually supposed to evoke memories of silly Role-playing game monsters, like owlbears.

Coincidentally, the name Beowulf, if directly translated, means Bearwolf.

the new page went up today.

It's the last page of the conversation about kobolds; the next comic will be a chase scene.

Also, I am adding Kobolds to the race section.

It does seem like an enticing motivation to flee from the kobold.
