I'm experimenting with a longer story line than I usually do.

Hello, everyone. Here's another question:
What is your favorite art style to do?
(Sci fi, realistic, manga, abstract...Everything counts.)
I am about to go back to figure drawing, as well as a painting class. So, really, I should be reviewing anatomy and things like that. But what I did instead was check out 30 comic book collections from the library and am drawing pictures from there. :) Working with charcoal is a great way to learn anatomy, but after months of it, I really love working with my Prismacolor colored pencils.

What are the three best traits in a hero?
I'm wondering, what are all your favorite comics? (Manga is included.)
I like one called "Final Fantasy Type-0 side story: The Ice Reaper" Aside from the occasional uneeded comment and the mini-skirts, (Which I fixed. You gotta love ballpoint pens) It was really good.
A friend of mine recently reminded me that I need to be reading lots of comics if I am going to be making them.
So, one trip to the comic book shop later I discovered this wonderful all ages gem! Herobear and the Kid, by Mike Kunkel is absolutely glorious.
You can tell the artist is an experienced animator. All of the characters, even minor ones, have fun, well crafted designs. The art choice of leaving it all in black and white except…Continue
has anybody bought a Final Fantasy T-shirt before?
I'm wanting to get one, but I can't find a place that looks official. The one I got looks pretty bad. Does anybody know of a good place to get nerd t-shirts?
How do you guys represent social media in your comics?
It is such a big part of our lives, it would make sense that it would be in our characters lives as well. but frankly, it is not as fun to look at.
A lot of it is text-heavy; and when there are pictures, it's the pictures that are interesting, not the format.
Any clues? Thoughts? Have you seen it done well somewhere?
I have a few pages of social media interaction in my comic and…Continue

So taking inspiration off of Tom Montgomery's post, I'm going to challenge myself to produce one sketch per day for 30 days. I'm going to put 30 ideas in a bowl and pull one out each day. The only problem is that I currently only have 20 ideas, so I'll be looking for suggestions for the other 10. Just don't suggest Anime or something really obscure. lol. I'd like to stick with superheroes. I haven't really drawn anything in years, so hopefully Day 30 will be a vast improvement from day…Continue

Make a place in your week for an inspiring biography/autobiography.
As a Christian, I have been a bit reluctant to do so because I want to keep my focus on Christ; however worthwhile lessons, encouragement and exhortation can come from the lives of everyday people living out exemplary commitments.
I was reminded of this somewhat accidently as I was flying through the internet, looking for knowledge-resources-inspiration to make me better…Continue

*I originally wrote this mostly as a reply to someone else's post, but I thought it was worth repeating in a blog.
I think if you are a Christian and a storyteller, you don't have to turn your writing into a superficial representation of Christianity. A good story is a good story, and it does its job whether you emblazon crosses all over it or not.
I remember when I worked as the Acquisitions Editor for a small Christian…Continue
Meanwhile, at the villain's lair... wait, what? This looks like a normal downtown storefront. Our thinking was that the villains would hide in a normal place. Be patient until tomorrow.Continue
