Profile Information

Location:
Johnson City, Tennessee
Gender
Male
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
Writing and line art. I love science and history, and plan to utilize both heavily in my story arc. My webcomic is planned to be a military sci-fi adventure set in the near future.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was saved after family devotions one night in May of 1978 as I knelt next to the couch between my parents. I was only seven years old, but the change that occurred then in my heart has been ongoing ever since, despite many failures and mistakes along the way. The Lord Jesus Christ is and always has been faithful, and I hope that in some way my webcomic will help point people that otherwise would never pick up a Bible or darken a church door to Him, much in the same way that the works of Tolkeinn and Lewis' books did in their generation.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
Just working out of my home and making enough off my work to make ends meet.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Larry Hama had a definite influence on me during my formative years with his outstanding 12-year run on Marvel's G.I. JOE comic. I also enjoyed Peter David's run on Incredible Hulk; his exploration of the Hulk's and Banner's multiple personality issues were something I could identify with in my own struggles with severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Questions regarding 3D tools in Manga Studio 5

Posted on July 29, 2013 at 10:15pm 1 Comment

PLEASE NOTE: This is a copy/paste from a post I made at Webcomics.com; I'm trying to cover more area since fewer artists use 3D models in their artwork and I figured someone here might be familiar with it.

 

I'm still about a week or so from being able to upgrade from Manga Studio 4 EX to MS 5 EX, and already I'm getting more and more excited as I see potential ways it offers to streamline my drawing and coloring process. But after watching the trailer for MS EX 5 I was blown…

Major realization regarding Manga Studio EX 5

Posted on July 26, 2013 at 12:47am 5 Comments

Hey everyone,

Most of you have probably tried at least one version of Smith Micro's Manga Studio series.  I personally own Manga Studio 4 EX and absolutely love it; the tools for drawing are far and above what you get in Photoshop as they're geared specifically for illustration.  With a Bamboo tablet (and especially a Cintiq, which I'm fortunate enough to own) you can draw as naturally as you can on paper with a bit of practice.

 

Recently Smith Micro announced…

A New Direction

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 2:06am 2 Comments

Earlier this year I stepped away from my webcomic "Tomes of Atlantis" because I was discouraged by the struggle to gain readership and the fact that the comics medium, while enabling me to depict my stories visually, was terribly time-consuming and inefficient for ever finishing the arc.  I'd worked for too long and hard to just abandon all of it, but for awhile I confess that I felt adrift and directionless.

Recently however, an idea that I felt was probably crazy but seemed like it…

Determining whether a door has closed (and if so, where to move onto next)

Posted on February 11, 2013 at 8:30pm 5 Comments

Funny, we had a not-too-dissimilar discussion here not too long ago.

This morning I shared with the Webcomics.com community that I was having issues getting links to my latest comics to show up on Reddit.  Thanks to some helpful insight (I was using my site's URL repeatedly instead of specifically linking to the page's URL) I was able to get the problem fixed.

 

But a new problem, one that can't be solved via technical troubleshooting, soon reared its head. …

Hey Aaron,

Don't worry about you talent not going anywhere. You just find ways all over the place to display them and let God bring the right people by to see what you have got. I've met some cool people when I thought I was at a sorry place or show and they come walking up and introduce themselves. It's just great to meet people that love the medium and appreciate the work that we do.

Welcome Aaron,

I've been here for a few. Hope you enjoy you time here. I loved the G.I.Joe cartoon when it was on and I remember when we were all wondering whether Cobra Commander was a women or not. lol. It seemed to be eluding to that but they never showed the face. The figure is drawn with some wide hips. I watch the new cartoon now when can, not bad. The live action movie was okay and I hope they make another. I love comic books but never got the G.I.Joe ones but now I think I'll look into them. I'd like to get a full run of the Transformer comics one day. I loved the Thundercats cartoon as well. I plan to get the DVD collected cartoons soon. So much stuff! lol. I draw and write my own comics and work with my kids on coloring book pictures and stories. it's fun. Later, man.

Hey Aaron, welcome to the group.  Hope you like "hanging out" here and make some good connections.  I also was a HUUUUGE fan of the Hama GI Joe series as well as the cartoon (both a big influence on me creatively speaking).  I have the entire 155 issue run of GI Joe and the current Hama series with IDW (along with every other GI Joe comic on the planet, heehee).  YO JOE!
