Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

When an artist decides to draw eyes differently, some say that they use a different style though the eye shape is literally all that changed. Their originality is often questioned. Never understood why there's so much controversy over such a small thing.

Meet Emma Vieceli—writer of Fran Kenstein!

Good morning, gang!

It’s update time on Madefire’s 'Fran Kenstein' Artist Challenge. So far, things are going swimmingly and the community’s overwhelmingly positive feedback has been gratifying—reaffirming our excitement for this! As a special treat today, let’s meet the voice behind our story—Fran Kenstein writer Emma Vieceli!
First up—tell us a little about yourself!

Hi there! Okay, so I'm Emma (emmav) and I've always loved telling stories; whether on stage, through writing or through comics – which combine the best of everything, I think.

Some of the projects I've worked on include: Alex Rider (current), Vampire Academy, Manga Shakespeare, The Avalon Chronicles, Young Avengers, My Little Pony and my creator owned titles, Dragon Heir and BREAKS (Which you can read RIGHT NOW for free at You can find out more about me at my website: or on my deviantART page. (Which I must update!)
How did you come to be acquainted with Liam/Madefire? Are you a fan of what we’re doing with digital reading both as a creator and fan?

I've known Liam for a long time. Comics are a pretty happy family most of the time, and it's hard not to get to know your fellow creators. Years ago I got to know Liam through the London MCM Expo event; a show which had just started to grow back then – and that apparently saw over 100k people through the door this May! Liam and I stayed in touch off and on over the years, and then we found each other on devianART! I've been following Madefire with interest as they're really on the button in terms of what can be achieved when you combine comic storytelling with media. I'm not a fan of standard 'motion comics' as they often run the risk of being a watered down version of either animation or comics, but Madefire are doing incredible things with the medium and are coming up with ways of genuinely forging a new way to read comics. A lot of it follows on and improves on steps I took along with the fantastic Thrill Electric ( team a couple of years ago – so it's a medium I've always had interest in.
How did you come to be involved with this project?

I was lucky enough to be approached by Liam and Ben, and asked if I was interested in scripting a short comic for them. Fran sounded a really fun concept, as was the idea of seeing deviant artists working on it. So I immediately said I'd love to join in!
You’re known as a writer-artist but have you ever written a script for another artist to work from? How was that different, process-wise, then how you write for yourself?

This is the very first time I've scripted for someone else, and it was so much fun! I'm used to scripting for my own purposes, and I'm very used to drawing from other writers' scripts, so I think I had a pretty firm idea of what an artist who had never worked with me might want to see in a script.

I was able to consider what was feasible in a direction, and what could be done with the space without making things really difficult on an artist, because I AM an artist :) What I did find was that I was a lot more careful than I would have been when writing for myself, haha. When I script for myself, it's very messy and loose as I know I'll be re-scripting more firmly once I've seen how the pages actually shake out visually. With Fran, I had to be sure that any artist could understand what I was explaining, so I had to be a little more clear than my own messy scripts ;). Hopefully I've still left enough room for any artist to play, though, and make the pages their own. That's a lot of the fun of comicking.

Today’s design by Gilang Andrian is that of Oscar, Fran’s near-perfect male classmate:

Any advice for aspiring creators?

Gosh, there are a million things someone can offer as advice but, when it comes down to it, everyone will forge their own path in comics and art. Few paths are the same. But in terms of handy coverall advice, I'd definitely recommend challenging yourself to practice everything...especially the things that you don't want to draw or write. Sticking with what you're comfortable with will never lead to improvement; only within very small boundaries. Comics often require us to step out of our comfort barrier, so get ahead of the game and test yourself early! Hate drawing cars? DRAW CARS! Hate writing romance? WRITE ROMANCE! ^_^
Lastly, can you tell us some of your favorite deviants?

Oooh that's hard! I follow so many people on deviantART and it's very hard to pick any above the rest. I guess some of my favourites are:,,,,,,, and
But there are many more!

Thanks again to Emma Vieceli for taking the time to sit down with us for that great interview! Now it's time to announce yet another judge…so ladies and gentlemen, let’s give a warm welcome to:
