There are quite a few comics that aren't "cutesy" like Ten Blade which is even on the front page.
Even look at "Like a Wolf". It's apparently really famous in Korea so when it was put on Tapastic it like, really got big here lol
Are you ftm Uzuki?? (cause if yes, gotta high five xD)
Yeeeeep /high fives
So mine ( http://tapastic.com/series/Peter-Deadle3 cute ) is pretty much cutesy?
Personally I went this way cus of the learning curve. Sometimes I try things out, but it either works or I'm missing a few step inbetween.
I don't understand the gag-a-day hate though. It's nice, especially when traveling or trying to sleep.
It's easy on the eyes aswell.
It could be considered "cutesy" yeah. There are varying levels of cute though There's like, HJ-Story cutesy and then there's Buni cutesy lol (which is actually a very dark comic if you've read it xD)
And yeah, there are a lot of people out there I've seen who tend to disrespect gag-a-day comics, then go claiming they "know comics" lol like when you think about it, the famous strips like Garfield and Calvin and Hobbes are technically gag-a-day. The only difference is that the jokes were slightly different (that's just a culture change though) and they were printed in newspapers. They were still drawn each day (or several days out of the week) though and still fit the criteria for gag-a-day's. And hell, if the Internet didn't have gag-a-day's, we wouldn't have a lot of hilarious and great comics like Poorly Drawn Lines or Cyanide and Happiness or Two Guys and Guy, etc. The webcomic world would be pretty empty
While I'm rambling, I've actually attempted to draw story-style comics, but for some reason, I just can't D: Like, I have an awesome fancomic I want to do from my original-novel-format but I just find it so difficult to sit down and dedicate myself to drawing pages of story. It's just easier for me to draw goofy four-panel comic strips I guess v_____v
