I'm sorry about saying "good at expressions . . . on guys" . . . it was a rash judgment. v_v

Nice background photo, where's it set?
Everyone seems to be busy around the museum these days - one can hardly drive through the area... :(

Are they going to fix it anytime soon? I was under the impression they were building a bridge (?)

They are building a tunnel under the museum passage, from Mazraa until after Adlieh. It will relieve traffic in a big way when it's over, but it'll take at least another year f roadworks :faint:

Dang, another year of traffic! The home-AUB commute is tough/congested enough as it is... Hang on in there.

Such a beautiful mix of colored black&white photos with computer coloring... Although in the last panel Malaak's waist just looks a little too exagerated for some reason. I realize of course that this style always has the exagerated waist and it just about always looks really good, but this one seems a bit overdone. (can't help the criticism since your work usually looks flawless to me...)

Armenian! Yay!

Thank you :) I have to decide about that waist, as despite it being exaggerated it still doesn't disturb me visually, and the guys seem to enjoy it :lmao:

I second the love of the photo integration! I've always thought it was cool, but this shot looks particularly awesome. Also, I like your less-than-orthodox layout.

No, this was before my time... I never got to set foot in that part of the city (even though I can walk there from home) before I was 13.

That background (photograph) in the first panel really brings it home just what this war is doing to the city... And though you've done this before, this one was the best so far, I think.

:nod: This one worked great, and I'm fascinated by the fact although the picture is not clear enough to actually show rubble, it still comes across as a city in ruins. I was lucky – I had visualised the panel and it turned out I had just the picture I needed for the composition!

and what happened in the last square with Malaak's waist. It is usually normal and suddenly she's a wasp?

No, why? It's always fine, just more emphasized sometimes.

Actually, the same thing struck me too, waist too thin. I think it's thinner than her face :|
But then again you do exaggerate some features (like making heads slightly bigger) and it's ok. I guess you were emphasizing she's really fit :D

The real background in the first panel really brings the story to its context and it goes very well with their explanations of the brigade and also with Malaak's "I need to get out more" confession. I so identify with Malaak in that moment, because it's so hard to hide my ignorance of wordly affairs at times. ^^;

I've been asked to start a web comic ... but i've never done a comic before how would one get into starting one.. because i've tryed before but trying to draw the character perfect again and again in different poses and exspesstions seems very difficult ?

:iconmajnouna:
Majnouna Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007  Professional General Artist
That's why you need to make character sheets, so your characters' features are clear in your mind. Once you know exactly what they look like, and if your drawing skills are sufficient, it shouldn't be hard. If you find it difficult though you might want to practice some more before embarking on a comic – it's a large endeavour.

indeed usualy if i give myself time i can draw rather well, alas my motivation is rather lacking

Then don't... The first piece of advice I was given when I started out is – don't draw when you don't feel like it.

Really nice use of photograph there! Sneaky, I didn't notice at first. :D

I see a slight flow issue with the Kisher Pary frame. The dialogue balloons are higher, and seem to occur before the This Is Me part.

Nice use of perspective on the second-to-last panel, though. :D
