I don't know if that's actually important. People on YouTube seem to consider it amongst the highest honours.

In other news, I think I'll share some constructive criticism...
A belgian comic-artist once told me that when drawing a landscape, or things in perspective, never ever use straight lines, because straight lines have no expression. They make art look realistic, but they don't feel real.

I mention this, because I notice the house in panel 1 was drawn completely with perfect, clean, straight lines. It doesn't look bad at all, it looks quite good on its own. I just think it really clashes a lot with the trees behind it, which are curvy and freehanded. Also, I don't think it fits that well with your character-art, which is also very rounded, with variations in line-thickness and expressive exaggeration.

I'd suggest that instead of using a strict ruler to get the lines perfect, make some guidelines first, and draw freehand over them. I think the result will probably be a lot more consistent with the look of the rest of the comic.

Anyway, that's my opinion :)
