As I am new to Smack Jeeves I am open to advice, especially on things like formatting. These were taken with a camera, but I have also thought of using a Scanner. Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for more.

You should be mor expressive in your panels. Make them bigger and don't cramp too much text in one bubble. A good rule of thump is to also fill the whole page. Hope that was usefull

@Ionic Defibrillator: Thank you. Because it was drawn in Eighth grade I wasn't aware of a lot of elements that go in a comic panel. Most noticeably the first speaker's speech bubble should be on the left. Also I am having a hard time with making bigger panels. Ever since I was a kid it was always small panels. I am going to experiment with that.

I'm new to the comic world, too. Have always loved The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, etc. I've been playing with different formats -- full page, half page, but for uploads, I've found it works pretty well to scan in my pictures, then I can crop them to size and save in Web format on Photoshop. I think a lot of people create theirs on the computer, but I'm not that savvy! Good luck and I look forward to seeing more of your stuff...

@OddDuck: Thank you so much! Calvin and Hobbes was a huge inspiration for me too. Also OddDuck, I'm a big fan of "Up Close." I love ants. Thank you for the advice, and I feel the same about hand drawn comics.

@Ian: Thanks for being a fan! I'll have to come up with some strips where the ants get to be front and center (instead of just as aphid farmers). I meant for everything in "Up Close" to be about the world of tiny creatures, but now and then the big guys are going to sneak in (note duck and fox).
