I forgot to comment on these last pics! I love the smoothness and the expressions on those two twins + Allison pics, and especially the shading on the armour. Future designs are really neat, and I especially love skeleton Burns and bearded Bob. Really imaginative stuff. Bart+Terry pics are lovely and cute, especially Bart serving as seat. (the way Bart's neck and chin stretch on the kiss pic looks a bit odd to me, but the colouring is nice). Finally, that last one is excellent! The dialogue and the expressions match perfectly, and both of them look adorable on both panels. Very funny and imaginative stuff, May!

Flashforward: very good, I always like future stuff, and I particularly like Mr. Burns and Homer's hair regrowth. Only slight downside I can find is that I think adult Allison looks a bit bland, and her arms feel a bit... angular in their position? She's still not bad, though. Seems like the twins' facial shapes have changed a bit as they've grown, which makes sense. All the Simpsons look great.

Kissu: very cute and on-model. The blush is what seals it, for me.

Terri on Bart: again, very on-model, and I always like your use of monochrome.

Agree with Fernie about the excellence of "undress". Very funny, and I adore Terri's expression in the second panel and the little cogs turning in Bart's head.

This made me chuckle. It's on-model, and the expressions are great. Only possible nitpick is that there's not really much of a feeling of heaviness from Bart (the rightmost twin's grimace aside), but that's the kind of thing that might be hard to get across in a sketch. It's perfect otherwise, so that's just a minor nitpick.

Oh belated, but I'm stilla little stumped on Allison, how to make it work. I was trying to mix some of the canon older versions (I'll attach em) but I think all of them have a bit of a face-shape change in mind when older, kind of a way to identify them by age even with just the face! That's why I keep drawing adult!Bart with a bit more of a Marge-ish overbite.

Something a bit comparitively bare-bones. Trying to do faces a different way. It doesn't SEEM that different but I think it makes a... difference. Basically still using the ball with lines but this time, the horizontal one isn't for brows or eyes, in fact there's no eyes here. It's the top of the cheeks/cheekbone instead! Should hopefully make it easier to get heads down properly without fussing over details too much. ANd maybe then I can actually do poses less painfully. I dunno, it's worth a try. Guess a secondary challenge was getting emotions down without using any eyes. Just brows and mouths and the rest of the face.

Aging up child characters is hard, especially when there's little reference material. Looks like your version of Allison is close to what little we've seen of her as a teen on the show. Maybe you should make her overbite a bit more pronounced.

I can't really say much about the face sketches, but the emotions come through clearly.

Yeah, the emotions are very clear, and the cheek-line idea seems to be working quite well.

Mertwins and also a colour test. Seems whenever Allison's in a different outfit it's frequently something green so wanted to see how it looked on the usual.

Mertwins is funny, and I get a good sense of how rough and stormy the sea is, despite it being a sketch. On-model and well drawn Sherri and Terri.

Allison looks on-model, and green seems to suit her.

You don't get to be twins without having a few responses prepared. I was just thinking of a few sections found in some of the books.

(sorry about lateness; didn't get around to commenting on this pic before going on holiday) Your art is good as usual (though the leftmost twin's expression feels a bit Family Guy-ish), but the dialogue is what blows this out of the water. It's rare that pictures make me actually laugh out loud, so good job!

I think the face there is just a bit of a weakness of the original style, it goes a bit into "c" mouth territory a lot...

Wasn't actually thinking about her mouth (it looks good to me), more the way you've drawn her eyelids. But it's a tiny nitpick anyway.
