"I'm not sure how it would count as time and space... Can body snatching qualify as anything else?"

"The person being snatched usually has no idea Hazel has taken them over since she can’t control them. They just go on as normal. When she takes someone over, her body essentially dies for those five minutes."

"Does anyone have any thoughts of an explanation of how body snatching could be considered an ability to manipulate time and space?"

Unique Twist with Hazel’s Power

I’m getting ready to go on a camping trip tomorrow and have no idea if I’ll be able to post anything. I’ll start on the drawing of Hazel and post it as soon as possible. I’ve been working quite a bit on New Eden’s culture, which I’ll get to later. When I was outside today, I came up with a unique twist for Hazel’s body snatching ability. She can’t control the ACTIONS of the person she’s taken over, but she can INFLUENCE their thoughts and feels whatever emotion they feel while she’s taken them…See More

Came up with a drawback to body snatching

I’ve been playing around with the drawbacks of different Irregular abilities in my series and came up with a good one for Hazel. When Hazel “takes over” another person’s body, her own body freezes in time (though it appears as though she’s unconscious and not breathing). This prevents her from aging in the 5 minuets she’s “looking through someone else’s eyes” (as she puts it), so while mentally she’s 33 (though she does behave childishly due to a trauma she experienced during a snatch), she…See More

Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
I'm a newbie artist, so I won't have too much information on that, but I can pray for you if you need it. However, if you're looking for recommendations on good, appropriate manga (Japanese comics) to read, I may have some advice. I also do mixed media, so if you're interested in using collage for backgrounds, I may be able to help you, though I am just learning myself. I also love to hear prayer requests. I'm currently working on a sci-fi/mystery/romance comic with a manga-ish look, so any advice is greatly appreciated.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I was raised in a committed Christian family. I first began to get into anime at the end of eighth grade. Faith has been a slow process because of my Asperger's Syndrome (a form of Autism), but I'm getting there. I believe faith is a journey. From the time you first believe to the time you go to be with our Father in Heaven.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
I'd love to be a Christian manga artist.
Favorite Comic Creators:
Natsuki Takaya

I need Sunday School advice

Posted on August 16, 2017 at 8:45pm 2 Comments

I can't find a better place to post this, but I need advice pretty soon. I'm teaching Sunday School to a class of kids roughly 1st-6th grade age (I go to a very small church) This Sunday. The lesson is about sacrificial love, and I like to plan my own lessons. I've been reading about how we need to talk about the crucifixion and resurrection other times than just at Easter, and I thought this would be a good opportunity (the curriculum we're using has several Bible story suggestions for each… Continue

Hi there!

1: I enjoy lots of different genres, but I think action-adventure is what I gravitate toward, and I'm a sucker for Sci-fi.

2. My favorite of Takahashi work is probably Ranma 1/2. I love the humor and there's a lot of martial arts in it that Takahashi does a great job with.

3. The Sequential Art degree program does include a math class as a general education requirement (most degree programs at most schools do). SCAD gives freshmen the opportunity to take an exam to test out of having to take math. I was able to pass that test and take a science class instead, but most students don't pass that exam.

As far as college stuff in-general goes, I think the most important thing to look at is cost and your career goals. I didn't really understand the impact of student loans until after graduation, and between my personal loans and the loans my parents took out it is a crippling amount of debt that neither I nor my parents could afford. If you are thinking of going to art school, do so if you and your family can afford it and/or if you are 100% committed to making a living from your art (which takes a lot of hard work).

I don't mean to totally discourage you - going to SCAD was a great experience, and I got to meet really amazing professors and study abroad - but there is still a part of me that would have decided not to go if I had really understood the weight of the debt I would graduate with. I wouldn't want others to go the same path without thinking realistically about the consequences.

There are less expensive options, such as going to a cheaper state-school with a good art program, and using online learning resources. It'd take a little more self-motivation, but Imaginism Studios and Society of Visual Storytelling have tons of courses by comics artists and animators.

4. I do art digitally for the most part. I use Clip Studio Paint (also known as Manga Studio), which is a program made specifically with comics artists in mind. I highly recommend it. I used to use Photoshop and Illustrator, but I've since switched to using CSP exclusively. Seems like Medibang Paint has a comparable set of tools, tho. I also use a Wacom Tablet to draw. Someday I'll have a Cintiq :'D

Thanks for the welcome, and I hope your arts learning goes well!

Hey! Thanks for checking in. I am planning on doing so tonight or tomorrow, as I've got a lot of free time this week. I want to get some of my drawings as well as the cover of the first issue of my comic that's coming out on Comixology tomorrow. I will connect with or friend you when i make an account (if you're able to do that?)
