Werewolf defined my ComicFury personality. Before Werewolf, I was an unknown nobody. I had no avatar until the game was finished. (Or near-finished. Can't remember, exactly.) This really was my essential thought process for becoming the Scientist I'm known as today. Jacob's there mainly just for convenience, lampshading the unusual train of thought I had. :P

I updated the comic. The original can be found here.

Villager... Have you considered drawing / scanning them? MS Paint is not a good medium..

Dang it, I had that down as Villager on the piece of paper I wrote it on! >_<
(Yes. It's actually hand-drawn originally. I have a scanner, but it's sketchy. :P I have a tablet, but it's broken. So, no way for me to bring hand-drawn into digital.)

MSPaint--especially 7, now that I've adjusted--actually serves me well. The Avatarless-Ranger looks EXACTLY the way I want it to. (Okay, maybe I should get rid of the outlines [which were there in the hand-drawn: did outlines, then filled it in with a circular motion of my pencil], but otherwise, fine.) The text boxes do look a *little* artificial, I suppose, but if I really wanted to, I could make them look more organic; I just don't bother because it's a small technicality.
Jacob...well, I was mimicking the hand-drawn version I did of him instead of a more detailed version.

(The Avatar-Ranger is a copy-paste of my first avatar; it is intentional.)

Basically, a lot of the flaws here come from trying to replicate the hand-drawn version. :P

I've actually dabbled into Photoshop, Illustrator, and even Flash to some extent. I can use them decently, but I still prefer Paint, personally.

So, yeah. I'll keep using MSPaint. It has served me well. This is an accurate self-portrait of me (okay, skin color's a little off, and due to it being a computer screen as my mirror, my eyes are uncolored, but that's not Paint's fault!) done entirely with Paint, which I could never do by hand. Generally, I tend to not aim for perfection in my work; I am well aware of how that'll cause failure.
