Haha ...you don't know how many times I get asked that!  When I wrote it, I had not intention to continue it (although people tell me the ending is a cliff hanger).  I will bow to the pressure and continue at some point.  I just can't say when.

Yeah, there's a lot of pages in this one that need work.  It's a pretty early effort.

What operating system are you using? Did you download it? Sometimes the bigger files have to be downloaded. When you say you can't scroll through it do you mean at this site?

Umm just saying, but for some reason, even though I'm using a laptop, I can't seem to scroll through the story, if this one is like the others, where the reader scrolls down through panels.

I told you I would not miss writting you a proper reviews upon seing your next work, well here I am. :]

It felt like an amazing read, I was really into it. Although the old pervert guy is quite not a likeable character at first, the journey of his progressive regression was entertaining, and I soon felt empathic with his little adventures.
Nancy (and her new family) coping with again another AR disaster was well done too, the whole thing is damn cute at some points. ^^

I liked how it's truly a sequel to the previous one. I was expecting just another similar story with just the same settings and a male AR instead of a woman one, but this tied itself wonderfully with the first set. The backstory of the lab is explained, others surrounding characters are introduced, and the story kind of go all the way around in refocusing on little Karen, which returning memories was a neat twist.
The whole ending just scream for a sequel. I don't see how it could be anything other than AP, so I wouldn't be as eager to see it, though, but it sure make the reader eager to know what's going to happen next! :)

The art was great, Nancy's face and the guy's regression was well done. The gifs were so good! Although the third one on the slide look kind of weird, which I think is a consequence of the point of view, I still can't believe you can so (it seem) easily and sweetly picture characters regressing. The face going from teen to child was very well done.

So, if I could rate it, I would give it 8/10. thanks for letting us see this sweet comics.
Now, I wouldn't want to look too ecstatic, I've still got some sides of it I thinks were a bit disappointing, but I think it make reviews more interesting this way.
So, do you take criticisms? :]

Sure, I take criticisms.  I can hopefully make the next ones better.  I'm just learning animation, and I expect to get better at that.  I always feel like I can polish a story better but I thought this was ready for release.  I know some of the slides could have been better...glad you liked it!

Nice.
So, well, as I said, the face of the adult Nancy was well done, the faces of every adults, actually. I think you really reached some high standard here. The changes from adult to teen were a bit uneventful, it was sometime kind of hard to see differences between young adult and teen, but one can easily say it's kind of true in real life. ^^
The change from teen to child was very well done, as said above. The different features of a face when in teenhood and whildhood were here, it was a neat process. :)              

Now for the critics: the child rendering, though, that's where it is showing it need to be improved.
I don't know why, but some of the faces seems weird, particularly the baby sitter, some of Karen's faces and when he become very young. I think his baby faces look like they have too much cheeks, or there a too big mark around the nose, some kind of rictus. They look like peachs. There's a well know very old french caricature which I think well express this, maybe you know it :  upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…


One thing that immediately struck me, to be fair, is his skin color. It's very yellow! For a moment I thought he had been somehow asiatised. ^^ I think you intended this to show him being childishly tanless, but here it's way too far, and anyways the other kids have normal skin color so it is even more noticeable. He thus look sick, and with the sort of redness below his eyes, he almost look like a zombie in some pics. ^^'

He otherwise was well pictured. I think there could be some improvements in how he change through childhood, but I may be nitpicking here. :]
The point where he reach toddlerhood, on the other hand : he just look like a kid being even more little. What is distinctive in a toddler is all the fat. They're chubby. The arms, the legs are chubby, and their belly is all round. So I think it could be rendered better here. ;)

Err, now I'm finished, and this comment make it look like I've got more criticisms than appraises. But be sure it all the way around. The shades of both physical and mental AR were so much well done. It was really sweet to see him enjoying playtime as a little kid like that. It was a wonderful work.

I hear ya.  I'm a little bit limited with the skin textures, and I think I should have used a different model for the sitter but I wanted to try something new.  Main issue from going from teen to pre-teen is that the adult textures all have beards, and the child textures look totally different than the adults.  I do need to work a little on the toddlers and babies.

Thanks for the input!

You're welcome.
 I understand the problem, quite basic with 3D works, lack of textures is. There's sometimes just things which can't work as one would want, like the clothes, by the way, the boxers seem to just float at a given distance around his waist, when it reality it would fall warped around him when he's sitting in the lab. I've seen others works where the character's shirt looked like paint over his chest. ^^ Most just go around such proclems by avoiding complicated clothings.
I still think the sickly skin could have been avoided, though. Them just having the same skintone wouldn't be such a problem, in my opinion, but I get it.

I hope the available textures will improve with time, and I wish you to keep enjoying your work. I guess it can be somehow frustrating.

I might have been able to fix it with the lighting.  In the past I had been criticized for the scenes being too dark.  I tried to fix that with this one by using a different universal lighting.  I'll play around with it.

I don't get it. If the lighting is universal, why is his skin the only one which seem too yellow? Or is it that it was just subtle, and the whole lighting thing distorted it?

You would be amazed how different the models look depending on the lighting.  Compare the first Sims to this one.  The first one was done with spotlights.  They're different.
