And that's it for Chapter 2! Chapter 3 coming soon, although it's going to be quite a while until then.

Overall thoughts? Better than Chapter 1, but still not quite there yet. Started off fun, but then it plodded along with way too much time spent inside the very boring control room.

This is especially bad when one of the biggest reasons for this comic's existence is to help myself improve on background art. Here it felt like consistently drawing the same bland room design over and over again didn't help me one single bit.

This comic isn't going enough places I feel and that's something I'd like to fix for next chapter...

Whatever. You are damn talented in my opinion. However, everybody loves action, so maybe more action? But then again, too much action is mindless and meaningless, so sometimes slow exposition adds meaning to the story and gives people a chance to relate to the characters.
Personally, I'd like to see Gunmetal be a little more effective, and if his ineffectiveness is due to the fact that he is a heavy, slow armored "Tank Type", then like I have suggested, give him an upgrade. These guys are robots after all , so why not? Unless their creator has deemed it forbidden to alter their sacred design or something (talking about the creator in the story, not you). Anyway I think you are doing fine, but I admit that I do not think I am quite on your level artistically, so you may be comparing yourself to career professionals inside the animated film industry. And, there's no problem with that if you want to push yourself and get better.

Thank you! I think it's also that I've found drawing these most recent pages quite boring and think they haven't really mixed things up enough.

As for Gunmetal, we'll see. I actually do agree he is a bit underpowered...

Thanks! Although he was meant to evoke a frog more, but I can definitely see the turtle comparison! :)
