Squamataur experiment by Karbo Squamataur experiment by Karbo
A little strip about an experiment to study the ability of some squamataurs to imitate their environment pattern. Too bad the experiment is conducted by fairies who went a little overboard XD

I had lot of fun doing this one, I was giggling to myself the whole time =p

I've never seen a squamataur before, so it's a good thing you drew one!!!

This concept is golden! I can understand why you were giggling while drawing it, because I was laughing out loud while seeing it!

I like how you didn't use borders to separate the panels... It looks very clean.

Also, the fairy is not boring. She is a bit different in every panel, and you can see her playful personality! The squamataur also has fun emotions. She seems glad to volunteer in this experiment at first, but then she gets annoyed!!

One thing... In the last panel, I first thought she was spitting something... Then I found out it was her tongue!!! I don't know...Maybe there should only be one tongue, because the Fairy isn't moving that fast. Right now, it looks like the squamataur is spitting something, or that she has 3 tongues... or maybe it's just me being silly.

Anyway...I love the patterns. You started with simple colors, then subtle patterns, like that of leaves, earth and darkness and even fire...Then the patterns became loud and silly. I love her expression on the Christmas tree pattern.

Question: When she camouflages in real life, would a "predator" see here hair and top?

I gave you 4 1/2 for Originality only because this comic reminded me of Randall's training in Monsters Inc. But I like yours better!

Well, that's another critique...I hope I'm getting better at these. Thanks for everything Karbo. You're amazing!

The way you made the patterns transition to the girl's skin is really well done, they really flow across her curves very nicely. I really like that you didn't just put some flat texture it really makes a huge difference. BUT I DID FIND ONE FLAW the one second from the right on the top row with the red background the girl's right hand and fingers are fatter than her left hand even though its farther away. :O
lol jk
I can't really critique this because its meant to look more like a casual relaxed draw. If it didn't it wouldn't seem right so it all seems spot on to me!.... except them fingers lol jk

I like the idea that fairy play with the color and pattern with the big girl skin!
