I love this comic, but I can't fav it because of the fact that you have a main character that was just taken from a video game and you didnt even edit it.

It could use more originality. =/

Then don't fav it. I'm pretty sure it's still more original then you think. How many other sprite comics with a Tales of the World 3 style do you see around here?

Oh come on. All sprite comics are the same, its all just copying and pasting and then giving captions. You cant say you actually give your comic a style, while others draw their comics.
Also, lets say I made a comic and used sprites from Castlevania. And I made it have the most cliche' plot ever. Is it original? No.

Also, not recoloring or editing your character just makes people say, "Oh, its Rid from Tales of Eternia." And then they get disappointed because they find out its just the same character with a different name.

See what I'm getting at?

Take into consiteration that Tales of the world sprites are hard as hell to edit. He might not be good enough, or he can't find anyone to do it for him. And some people(namely me) cannot draw if their life depended on it.
Now, aside from pointing out the obivous, your advice is useful, just try not to harrass people about it.
"I'm not going to fave this comic because you didn't edit the sprite" is a load of bs. If your going to be a jerk, please leave.

Dude, think what you want, you don't have to read this comic if you feel that way. Yes, advice is all well and good. I just didn't even attempt to recolor, because honestly I don't see the point. Give some sprite different colored hair and clothes and they are different? No, they aren't. No matter how differently colored the sprites are, they are the same. It's in the personality you give them, there's what makes them unique. It's about giving them strengths and weaknesses so as to make them both relatable and fun to watch.

And you think I didn't think of drawing? I'm a terrible artist. I wish I could, but the fact is I can't, so I go with sprites.

A simple hair color change won't make them more original.

I noticed a mistake in pannel 5. He said "you are coming with you (there's the mistake)". I'm just pointing that part out.

It's probably supposed to be "you are coming with" and then "you stupid slacker ghost".

Hmm...I really like this comic. May I ask where you get the backgrounds? Just a site.

Well, they are ripped from the One Piece GBA game. My bro and I ripped most of them, so we haven't uploaded them. But a lot of them can be found at the One Piece Online Forums.

Thanks. I can't find backgrounds that fit TotW: ND3 style anywhere. This style works though.

I will admit, I did sound like an asshole. But I think that not editing the main characters sprite is a huge deal imo.

Thats all. =/

@Rebellion: I didn't think you sounded that bad. Everyone is entitles to their own opinion, and ours differ, that's all.

And thanks a lot Tasher, I won't dissapoint you.

Huh. You know you still have "The Freelancers" on Donator status, right? You planning on doing something about that?
