I think my only real criticism is that I expected more of a transformation by the end, but that being said, the comic has also set up the plot with a few mysteries that hopefully are going to be solved in the future.

Some text did look a bit weird, like some of it were missing (not entire words but some of the “top”.

That’s all I can think about for now. I’m looking forward to the next part :-)

What page did you see the broken text on?  I can fix that easy and get you an updated copy. 
As for the mysteries in the plot, yes absolutely yes they all will be brought into the light as the story progresses.  My hope was that it kept you captivated to come back for more.

Picked it up today ;)  Liked it :) Some nice setup for the future :)

Only things I can think of in terms of critique is - 1) some of the speech bubbles needed to be resized.  It looks like you use Comic Life for the lettering. That program gets a little funny when you use speech bubbles OTHER then the standard shape (i.e. exclamation bubbles; thought bubbles, etc.) Just need to resize/adjust them so as to avoid cutting off some of the letters.

The other is - have you thought about grading the images once they have been rendered?  What I mean by that is, using Photoshop to tweak them. For example:

   

Left/top is the original image, right/bottom has I've graded slightly (and quickly).  The difference is subtle (image size has also been reduced to keep file size down). but the grade one has slightly more depth and color to it imo.

Apart from that, everything looked good (especially since this is your first comic and you are still getting use to Daz Studio).  You'll pick up things as you go. For example in the images posted above - her feet are in the floor.  Just need to adjust the Y axis occasionally.  CTRL+D in DS should make the figure drop to the floor, but this doesn't always work with environments. So you need to keep an eye out and adjust.

Keep it up and look forward to seeing where you go :)

Peace.

kickass2014, yes I see the difference.  Absolutely yes I’ve got a lot to learn, but I did learn quite a bit, lighting, depth of field etc. I think if you look through from where I started to where it ended you can see the progression.  I was hoping to completely finish each image in Daz, but I see now using Photoshop is going to be unavoidable in quite a few cases.

Using Photoshop is a MUST :)   I use it on all the renders I produce for grading and compositing.

3D rendering is like photography/filming in real-life.  DS can give you the raw images, with depth of field, perspective, etc. all correct.  But the image will ALWAYS need touching up before in can be called complete.  This is true of every Hollywood film as well.  No SFX company uses their renders as their final image in the film :)

And yeah, this def stuff you will pick up as you go along. Certainly made a lot of progress already, so all good Bully :)   

Peace.

I've read it twice. It's good.  Engaging story and characters. Nice situations. Good setup for future super-powered shenanigans.

An impressive number of renders in a relatively short period of time with a lot of characters. You'll have to share your techniques for not overloading your card.  Some of the night scenes are a little dark for my tastes - could do with a bit more lighting focused on the characters.  I like the framing of the scenes - you definitely have a photographer's eye for things which is something I lack.

Out of interest, what set did you use for the daytime city street?

GincognifoThanks man. I appreciate that. 

Yeah, a little over 250 images. But, I started it back in March.  I learned to streamline my renders by deleting everything that wasn't in the image frame.  Some of them took several hours regardless.. Those I set to render when I went to bed.  When I got up I started a new one to render before taking off to work.  When I got home, I just repeated the process.   I did all the scene set ups on my off days.   
Night scene too dark.  I hear ya, but I wanted that ending scene dark.  Kinda focusing on the vehicle headlights and her flashlight for illuminating the scene for which I used ghost lights. 
For the city, I used Urban Sprawl 3

I'm working on it.  Hopefully it won't take as long as this one did.  But the "Render" process is a real time suck.

I don't Bully, sorry.  I've never really used them.  If I've needed something like that (on a wall for example), I generally just comp it in using Photoshop.

Peace.

kickass2014,  No worries.  I did the same thing in PS for TV and computer monitor displays.  I just want to wrap my brain around it for the Iray Firefight.

Did the tutorial I posted a while back help at all?

I have tips for TVs and monitors as well, I'll try to write that up sometime.

Still working on Volume 2.  But in the meantime, here's a preview of what's coming next.  UBER GIRL.   A supergirl uses a ride app to tour the city, meet new and interesting people, and then have some fun with them.  
Coming soon to   steelelegacycomics.gumroad.com…
