I tend to agree. I posted that for clarity as I think I might have given the impression that the victim's family would act as judge, jury and executioner.

Aye, done something similar after a polite 'no thanks', one cad shouted, 'io you dropped something', I'd just taken my hand out my pocket so stopped and looked back, he then 'joked' about it... I had been late for work and was now even later, so went back: I'm a big bloke, but I'm out of shape.
I stood over him til I got his details and then report him to his allotted cher-ity...

I like, I like.

The idea, as I understand it, is that a court determines what happened and renders a verdict. A range of suitable punishments is offered and it's up to the victim's family to decide which is imposed. Only in the case of deliberate, premeditated murder would the death penalty be on the table.

Nope.  Not for me - not now, not ever.  Start killing people and you're a killer too.  Make the death penalty an 'option' for the bereaved then you get a penal code based on revenge and hatred.  I might have a very different point of view if one of my loved ones were murdered in cold blood, but then my judgement too would be clouded by extreme emotions.

Thanks Steve 🙂 yup heads are pretty much what I’m good at right now. I’m learning the rest of the human body but it’ll take some time.

I may just flip this to deal with the issue of the eye... woops! That’s a colossal mistake on my part.
Bottom left is supposed to a hand wrestling with a joy stick. I can draw hands relatively well too, it’s  the perspective isn’t really helping here. There’s supposed to be another screen there to help frame the composition, but looking at it now it’s not needed. I was thinking colour would make it clearer, but I probably shouldn’t rely on colour when it should be clear in black and white.

Really appreciate the quick response and the feedback, I’ll see if I can do another iteration.

Name rank and serial number, like bureaucrats it scares them when you start playing their game.... See Asterix and the tax office  :lol:

Really nice! I like your style and you can draw a good head.

Criticism wise, I'm not really sure what's going on in the bottom let and I think Tor's eyepiece and scars are on the left side of his face

Finally got round to inking this. I’ll add some colour soon. Not sure if the zine will be printed in colour... but I’ll colour it anyway.



Thoughts and feedback most welcome 🙂 I’m working on a second illustration showing Tor Cyan throwing the broken droids from the ship. Might be a while until that’s ready though...

Your points are all good ones Sheridan, but having someone moving to obstruct you while loudly berating you for ignoring them, selectively targeting single women and older people... these are not good things for a charity to be associated with. If they were beggars they'd be arrested for the kind of behaviour you see all the time. 

Of course people are employed by charities (my wife has been for 20 years and thank feck for it), of course people get paid to fundraise (often on commission), of course I and I imagine most people here have shaken a bucket/pestered potential sponsors/sought signatures for a charity on many occasions (I've done it myself for Sightsavers, the WWF, Amnesty International and a couple of homeless charities, at the very least).  I've no doubt there are good chuggers, who are committed to, or at the very least are an asset to, the causes they represent.

But. There are many chuggers that do little else but erode good will for their charities, and voluntary giving in general: that's indisputable. 

Personally I'd get rid of many charities tomorrow and fund vital services through higher general taxation.  The idea that children's hospices, homeless shelters and clean water projects depend on random acts of generosity solicited in the street... jeezus.
