Sorry for the quality drop on this page. Smackjeeves data allowance is too low in my opinion. It's a little frustrating >____<

500kb should be more than enough for a B&W page. It's even enough for most colour pages. Even if SJ allowed larger files than that (and it does, for comics with subscriptions), you should still keep your file size below 500kb to make sure the pages load quickly for your readers. Slowly-loading pages make people stop reading.

More likely, you're not saving your pages in a good way. In particular, you're saving in RGB even though these are grayscale images - you're essentially storing 3x the data that you need to! Switching to grayscale or indexed won't cut the file size down to 1/3 due to how compression works, but it should cut your file size down by quite a bit!

Do you draw your pages at about the same size that you post them? Your pages are consistently blurry, which I suspect is because of the brush you're using. If you work larger and then shrink the image down before posting, your work will look sharper.
Then again, your text is blurry too and I don't even know what could cause that. Are you doing some sort of processing to cut the file size down that blurs the image? That normally only happens with JPG, but there aren't JPG images.
