. . . i dont like were this is going.



Hmm ok well this one isnt bad in terms of your ideas and execution. It is actually pretty great. I think there is more story here and I hope to see that soon. It feels unfinished in terms of the story so I hope when it comes time there is more to draw and more to see. I think something intense and sexual can really happen here if you continue where you were going with there. The "LIPS" on the mother, the red, really draws you in and it was great to see such vibrant and dark lips for the mom is is the mirror of her regular mother. She has those button eyes as well just like the movie that always worked well. I think that this is a good way to show opposites and I know this is something you are recreating based on a film but it has always been a neat way to show a mirror or dark personality to someone you know. I think the term is doppelganger. I like the use of frames and text with the text bubbles. All the conversations fit well in the space you have and you didn't over crowd any frames or make things unreadable. I think the best part was the way you have expressions for each character, especially the one who only has button eyes. You really see what is going on with them and their intentions just on the expressions. You also create a good atmosphere for the story with the text you have and the art you've drawn. I think your shading is the best part of all the elements here and I would love to see more of that in the future. I love your backgrounds for each frame as well as they are well constructed and defined. I think you've done good work here and I look forward to see more of this story in the future because there is definitely something more about to happen. Please keep this one going.

Need more story for this one as it is very good, so keep it going.
