Just aiming at a web comic I could set up a site for.
Yeah, I'm just looking to learn a little of everything, improve my style and such.
Honestly your style might be more complicated then you wanna go for a webcomic, because you'll have to draw all the characters a ton of times, which would take a really long time with your fairly realistic style.
I guess comic publishers like Dark Horse would be your best bet if you're looking to see styles similar to yours to help yourself improve. You can buy and read comics digitally on their site, and I think they give you some for free. If you're looking for comics to help teach you a solid way to tell a story, I recommend Lackadaisy , Boxer Hockey, and The Meek.
Lackadaisy isn't in color and the characters aren't even human so it probably won't help your art style, but it's the best comic I've ever read and has a fluency to it that I think is ideal for a webcomic The creator is incredible at drawing expressive characters, so you actually might pick up a thing or two. Boxer Hockey is also an example of great and interesting storytelling, though not quite as fluent as Lackadaisy. It's also pretty funny, but I get the impression that's not what you're going for. The Meek is set in a huge world with lots of fantasy elements like entirely new races and such without really being much of a elves and wizard type fantasy. It can get pretty confusing which sort of breaks the fluency, mostly in the 2nd chapter , but if you can get straight whats going on it'll be pretty amazing.
If none of those are working out, most webcomics have links to others somewhere on their site. Good luck to you.
