I've started making a comic about the battle between the Syreen and the Mycon.

It's good. I was expecting something funny, as such would have a greater appeal, and there's something slightly funny about 1x10^6 ships lights suddenly appearing in the shadow of the moon, but it's not quite what i was looking for. But it's good.

In the second frame, it reads "A well know strategy".  It should be "A well known strategy".  I'm no comic book artist myself, and I'd like to see a close-up of one of the ships, or a battle scene.

I love seeing people contribute artwork inspired by Star Control; please don't stop.  Hopefully, it will inspire others do contribute also.

The funny thing is I actually proof read the thing several times. I guess this shows that my talents lay elsewhere.

Good things come to those who wait.



I'm too tired to actually add the text, but here is the incomplete version:

I got some new memory today. Upgrading my laptop to a full 2 gigs. And I needed it for this comic. The comic (before shrinking) was 2800X2100 with multiple layers.


EDIT:
If you guys want to you are more then welcome to edit the comic to add your own text. Then you could post it on imageshack (http://imageshack.us/)

I use Paint.Net (http://www.getpaint.net/index2.html) to do all my picture editing (if you were looking for a program to use) and it is completly free.
