Not bad for a first try. However, don't save sprite comics as JPEG files. It can make the sprites harder to see at times. It also looks less professional. Try PNG or GIF. GIF is smaller, but sometimes messes up the colors. I prefer PNG myself.

Hmm...well not using .jpgs is definately a good start. It also looks like you resized in odd dimensions. If you are doing that, select the object and hit ctrl + w and resize by hundreds ONLY. 200 x 200, 300 x 300, ect. No 126 x 134 resizes. Next off, I'd suggest looking at FS's 10 Commandments of Sprite Comics and then work out other things. Frankly, you are in dire need of good backgrounds, and you can get that via background sites or you can rip them from ZSNES itself, just use similar bittage stuff. Also, try not to have people using the same pose in the same panel, try and make characters do different poses.


Father Carius: These sad events may yet be made to work in our favor. I wish to send Elena to Granas Cathedral immediately. It is rumored that his Holiness, Zera, knows of an ancient sacrament which has the power to cleanse the Soul of Darkness. The rite would free Elena and shield others from the taint of evil. We may again be able to seal the Wings again. Such an act would delay Valmar's return. However, those that follow Darkness will not sit idly as our plans come to fruition.
Ryudo: ... I'm sorry, were you waiting for me to give a damn?

Do you know a great place I can get backgrounds from The Legend of Zelda : Four Swords or the later versions of Zeldas because I cant find them. This will help improve my sprite comics!

You really shouldn't try backgrounds until you can master the sprites themselves.

Like Jigoku said, NEVER try to resize the sprites manually. Use the Ctrl-W feature. And be careful when making text-bubbles. You should type out the text, then draw the bubble around it.
