Martin's making new friends so quickly:la:
Better watch your mouth, shorty!

Here he meets Russel, or as they call him, "Ironhead". He's a mutt with some serious hearing problems :giggle:


PS: I'm not happy with the dialogues and flow on this page. If you guys have any ideas to share, I'll be glad to hear them! 
Btw, I'm changing the font's size. I think it's less aggressive to the reader if it is a bit smaller! :P
You guys let me know what you think about that! ^^

Hah, poor Martin! He goes on a misadventure with every new page XD And I already love Russel! Imagine the possibilities with gags about his hearing problems! I also like the white dog with a spot on his eye right next to him :D I have a feeling it's someone important :la:

Hoho I wonder who spoke! Can't wait for more :D

Despite it being a popular opinion, I'm not that sure it's Steban. I'm leaning more towards Lester… 
I might me wrong tho. ^^

Lol poor Martin, why can't people learn to love him XD I love the expressions in this :3 I see you Steban can't hide forever. Well since they turned that direction I am guessing that Steban is the one that spoke out in the last panel. Btw thank you so much for the mention :) means a lot to me ^^

It looks like that big dog has some hearing problems. I bet Steban will be hear to say," break it up you two, and just let the rookie go." I love the expressions in those panels. Poor Martin though, when you mentioned hotel, I thought about my fan character who runs a hotel. Nice work Skailla.

love your comic so far!

a hint someone gave me for my own comics once: play more with perspective in each panel - you have a lot of character close ups in there - there is no real variation in the scenes, it's just packed with characters. try to change perspective more often :)
for example you could change the 5th panel to a view from above - so you can see the other dog jumping of the chair - would also add some dynamic (i guess that's what's also missing - some movement that creates dynamic - the chair might as well get kicked over, because the fellow is pretty angry, right? ;)).

in the second panel you could also change the perspective slightly - martin is a lot smaller than the other fellow, so it would be nice to see the other dog from martin's perspective (from a lower perspective looking up - the other dog would be see in profile, his eye glancing down).

when it comes to dialogues ... in the 6th panel martin should probably stutter a bit ;)

well, but that's just my opinion how the flow could be better ^^ (oh and i hope it's clear what i tried to explain ;) )

Well I don't think this would have gone any better if he had understood Martin right. Fun thing is that he seems genuinely surprised by Russell's outburst, like he didn't even notice he was being rude.

You're right, that line was really badly thought! I changed the dialog a bit now, I think it sounds more coherent now. 
Could you please let me know if it sounds a bit better?
thank you! :heart:

Yes it does sound better now. Though I wasn't really criticizing the dialog, just observing Martins behavior ;) He seems an interesting character. I am looking forward to see more of him.

??? WHy would Martin say something like that?  The other guy's misunderstanding aside he still called him an ignorant country-sided mutt?  I'd break his neck also.

Yes, that line was really badly thought. I've already changed it into something more coherent! 
Could you let me know if it sounds like the "right" kind of harsh now? 
I didn't want Martin to be as insulting as he sounded, only a bit :P

*feels a bit embarrassed seeing as the author took time to respond to my somewhat critical comment*

Oh hey, pardon me if I was being a little forthright in my criticism. Yes it is much improved.  And I'm so far really enjoying this comic. I couldn't do anything like it.
Mind if I ask how you got so good at expressions?

Goodness, no need to worry! thanks to you I saw the mistake I made! (It was a big one!)
so thank you!! :heart:
I'm super glad to hear it sounds better now! :thanks:

And thank you so much for that as well! :aww: I'm happy to hear you like the way I draw expressions! 

This might sound funny, but when I was younger, I used to like sitting in front of a mirror making funny faces. That might have helped me quite a bit!
Other than that,  watching cartoons and observing how people react to certain situations is always helpful as well! ^^
