I have a problem in the stroy I'm writing. I have given my hero a clue and it's pretty vague. I need to find a way to give him the solution to let him move on to the next confrontation with the…Continue
"Thanks, everybody. That is something I have tried to avoid by finding models for the characters from the internet, television shows, movies, or even people I have known in the past to allow for some diversity in character appearance, but I was…"
You are a good man and have a good head on you. Do what you want, go where your passion and beliefs take you.I don't think you need to struggle with this. If you want the girl or girls hot...make'm hot, if you want them petite or…"
"Actually, I have an idea how that 'cookie cutter' approach came about. Bettie Page, the 1950s pin up model. had a body that was in perfect proportion to itself, and with the abundance of her photos, a lot of comic artists used her as a…"
"I agree that it's all about intention. If there was an intention to incite lust, then you'd probably want to reconsider your design; but if the story requires an attractive woman, don't feel bad about it.

Ron Z here. I know you know what I think, but for the benefit of other readers. Women should be drawn as the writer wants them drawn. petite, medium / average, buxom....as directed.However, if the artist is also the writer, what can can be…"
"For me, it's all about intention. Some women do have large breasts, but it would be unrealistic if every female in the story is a double D. Keeping it varied keeps it real. I also try to keep my poses from getting too extreme. No woman will…"
A quick question for your consideration:How should women be drawn? Traditionally, women have been drawn attractively, with large busts, etc. I have been writing for a secular audience, so I have held to that, but I would like to hear some other opinions. Thanks.See More
I wouldn't claim to any expertise in any field, but my areas of interest lie in the writing and scripting of comic books (I couldn't draw a straight line to save my life ha-ha). I also have interests in history, science and science fiction.
My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I'll confess that my testimony is by comparison, dull as dishwater. I became a believer in my teens and have found that my faith has become a stabilizing influence in my life which I wish to share with others.
Dream Job: (If you could have your dream job in the comics industry, what would it be?)
It would probably be as a writer or scripter for one of the smaller companies. The pay might not be as good, but the chances to express myself and share my faith might be more prevalent.
Favorite Comic Creators:
I hate to say it but none of the current creators really stand out as favorites. I've always been fond of the work of Frank Frazetta, Julie Bell, Olivia DeBeredinis and Neal Adams however.

Its cool that we have shared interests in science, history and cartooning. Look forward to seeing some of your thoughts in discussion and blog. Also, since I am naturally nosey, do you have any scripting/writing projects on your horizon?
Thanks I look forward to acquiring them and reading through them. The one main thing I think I struggle with is professionalism with my work, like when you read the comic section of the newspaper or in a comic book being able to put my work into the boxes.
