Thanks! When I was looking for a newish style of eyes, I actually did look at some Disney eyes (how big they are, how to fit into the head, proportion to the other face features, etc etc.).
As for the comic, I tried that about 2 years ago(about the time of the start of this thread), and it didn't work out very well. If I do want to make a comic, I want to take my time and plan it out. I tend to rush on these type of the things. I also need to really perfect my skills and find a good style.
