The "uniqueness" actually comes from limitations i have for my webcomic, and my art integrity (stubborness).
Artwise, I don't call myself an artist. I draw because i like my characters. For this comic i mix with a bit of my childhood artstyle. My character looks can be ranged from manga-like to cartoonish. They're generally 5~6 head/body proportion.
(here's a sketch of some background characters)
Though not perfect, I think my inking style have an 'organic' look, almost sketchy but controlled. For nature backgrounds I tried to mimic the look of a landscape ink sketch.
I like drawing traditionally, it's imperfectly unique compared to clean digital inks. Why black and white? Because manga aesthetic. I only picture it in physical manga book form. Plus, to print them will be much affordable. (sort of my end goal)
Storywise, I originally wanted to tell a bigger scope fantasy battle shounen (yeah typical) but my conscience told me to work on a smaller scope so i won't be overwhelmed for my first webcomic entry. So I created MAOR.
The different is: it's a fantasy adventure but protagonist stays in his homeplace most of the time. It's more grounded and realistic: no overpowered characters, no over-the-top world settings, no giant fantastical creatures, just animal folks.
Due to my lackluster writing skill, I keep the dialogues simple and minimal as possible. I try my way to tell the story through effective panelings and character expressions. You'll see it when the story reaches the key scenes. Also, i give myself a limitation that there will be no flashbacks, since i can see how this can be done in different ways.
My story is a slowburn with a gentle calmness in early story acts. I try to give it a certain warmth to the atmosphere. It will be slow, because i pace it as manga form not webcomic form. Turns out, for the whole package, it still needs 600+ pages to do it justice.
Oh dear I got a little too detailed for the thread.
