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

"Hey, everybody: There's something that has occurred to me over the years: Drawing full-size on an 8x11 paper, then scanning them, then fitting them to a page via computer. Would that work?"

"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…"

"I would. I have a couple of projects that I have the first issue scripted out and would like to find an illustrator for them. Send me an E-Mail and we'll talk details. God Bless You."

"I agree with Ron.  People will always criticize. I don't look like Captain America, but I still don't think you should draw him with less muscles and a gut."

"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. Also, draw whatever best…"

"Hey Mike, 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…"

James Art Ville replied to Mike Jacobs's discussion On drawing women in the group Visual Artists
"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…"

On drawing women

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

Profile Information

Location:
Roanoke, Virginia
Gender
male
Area(s) of Interest or Expertise:
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.

Thank you for the name of the sequential artist! I went and looked him up,and was very impressed with what I found! Will Eisner is now a familiar name for me. :)

Thanks! I really enjoyed re-creating Spiderman and putting a spin on his story for Christ.

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?

At 7:34am on January 1, 2015, Brian Raborn said…

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.
