I came here through your "Kickstarter" link.

While your art is good, I think that lifting much of the pose and fabric wrinkles from one of Mucha's Job cigarette posters takes away from showing how good of an artist you really are. I noticed you did this with the Chapter three "Nightfall" splash page by heavily referencing Mucha's "Night's Rest".

Anyways, I think your skills are definitely strong enough to avoid doing this. I know I'm being heavily critical, but I can't help but feel you're shorting yourself on your own abilities, and it looks detrimental to random passersby like me on Kickstarter.

That said, I do hope you make your goal and get your work published. We do need more artists and new comic writers in the world.

Thanks for your feedback! It is true, I did heavily reference Mucha for the first four chapter covers, to learn the art nouveau style. But I designed the rest of the covers from scratch. It was definitely a learning and growing process over the 3 years I worked on the webcomic. Thank you for your well-wishes!
