I never mind Anime art style unless people "tout it as ze greatest art style evar!!"
I have some gripes with it though. I always felt like for the most part it gave very little room for individuality and uniqueness in a character's design––when I look at anime art if you remove the clothing and hair and silhouette them they look the same most of the time.
I think your art style is a great example of this, in the anime-inspired style they look so cute no doubt with some differences between them but with your new art style they're so distinct in their build. The head shapes and body types of each character is so unique to themselves when compared to the cast.
When you had put them all together in silhouettes it was very easy to tell who's who.
And I think that it's important to have that sort of distinct difference with character design, it's just more interesting and varied in my opinion. 
Anime is a very pretty and cute art style, nice on the eyes, but I always felt like "cartoony" and other personal art styles allows the artist to experiment more.

amazing development! Before, you used anime style and somehow it evolved into something cartoonish which is fascinating! I hope this would give me an idea whenever I made a comic or a storybook!

Wow, I didn't even recognize that the top sketches were your work, great progression! Really shows that change from anime to your very personal, individual style.  Awesome progression, you've gotten fantastic at face shapes.

Seems like colorful people! So I've been wondering, been reading, playing, watching your comic, I was wondering if you have a consistent date on when you post your comment
(If not I'll keep checking twice a week)

Technically I update on Sundays (or Saturdays, depending on your timezone), but sometimes I skip a week or another if I'm making a flash or too busy with college.

yes, they contradict each other, he'll never be my bf :'c
sob


speaking of which, I'm kinda glad you brought that up, because I didn't think about that before
but he's most likely not poly
he's very enthusiastic about people being nice to him and seems to be friends with everyone, but there's always only one Really Important Person for him

That little 7 page comic in the link there.. is that a bit of a hint of what's to come?
Like, how they generally feel about what they do "for a living"? more "for a dying", amirite?// is spontaniously murdered

or would they be desensitised to most of it by now in the blackbrick road..?
