THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARSYou know that green ellipse tool that you bought in art school? Do you know how to use it for something other than oval shapes? Do you know what those "cross-hair" marks are for? And do you know how to use it for technically correct perspective drawings?THREE TIPS FOR DRAWING CARS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
TOO many comics artists don't, and it's driving me crazy. So instead of starting a blog that starts showing examples and naming names, I figured it was better to make a quick tutorial. And this isn't just for cars but also for guns, fire hydrants, and millions of other machined objects found in comics.
If you go through this and you're still stuck, please don't write to me. I'm happy to show you at a convention to make it clearer, but within a blog this is the best I can do. Check out "Perspective for Comic Artists by David Chelsea" for more.
Cars are a whole lot easier to draw if you know how to properly use perspective and ellipses. The more familiar you are with the math, the more fun it is to draw cars. Once I figured out th
BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!Well, the word is out: DC Comics is returning to the world of WATCHMEN! And I am drawing all four issues of the DOCTOR MANHATTAN miniseries. First sign of the Apocalypse? You bet!BEFORE WATCHMEN & AH!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's great to finally be able to talk about this project. I signed on AGES ago, and have kept mum about it, until now!
WATCHMEN is arguably the greatest superhero comic ever produced, and without a doubt my absolute favorite. Being allowed to draw these amazing characters isn't actually a dream come true: I never thought something like this would happen. I'm pretty nervous, but having fun so far.
My history with WATCHMEN goes way back. In 1986 I was working at Thunder Road Comics in Burlington, New Jersey, and I sold every issue of WATCHMEN as they came out. It was a pretty amazing time: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS was also shipping, so superhero comics were enjoying a banner year. The mullets, parachute pants, and
Your Like A VirusYour eyes of innocence.Your Like A Virus2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So pure, so deceiving.
Falling for it I lost my life.
You said you would help me.
You said you would heal me.
You were the sickness and not the cure.
I'm finally sick of taking you.
You make me sick, make me hollow inside!
I never felt this way before, rage enveloping my soul.
The times we had fun are erased,
I never want to hear you again.
Damn your love, damn your lies.
Damn your soul, damn your addictions.
I can still hear you say: " You'll never break you chain, you will always be there."
I'll prove to you I don't need your charity,
Wake and smell the death you created.
And now i have had it up to here and I don't, I don't want you here!
You are like a virus made by the people who hated me before,
You were injected into my heart and seeped into my blood.
You aimed to destroy me from the inside out, well now I'm over your sickness!
You scrambled, you fell, you lost it all.
You wondered what you did wrong,
Your innocent acts wont get through

Thanks to all who entered and voted in our first contest! ^0^
We hope to have many more, so keep trekkin'!
For our first contest, we will be doing the simple challenge of "draw your favorite episode".
Most of us watch Star Trek for its awesome storytelling, so this should be fun!

Here's some additional information and clarification - please read all

- Do not make up an episode.

To anyone who finds these memory cards,
and the messages left within...
My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.
If you are some other species entirely, then it is a story about how our human race was extin

Poll Questions: 09/20/2013Yes, it may sound a bit weird, but I am trying to make a poll question to see which one of the answers would get the most percentage. Its like a math experiment mixed with a political experiment for me in terms of ideology, political views, and philosophy. So i will give out six questions with eight answers each. Remember, there are not right or wrong answers, since they are just research. Each question will have eight choices for you to choose from. Determining your views of order-chaos, freedom-security, and equality-inequality, your results will determine where you stand on the spectrum.Poll Questions: 09/20/20131 year ago in Personal More Like This

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

First of all I want to thank those of you who have purchased my tutorial through legitimate means. Your support has been incredible, myself and my family can't thank you enough, the notes and letters I have received from many of you in regards to the tutorial have honestly been touching and inspirational - it's been an experience unlike anything I expected to find in this business.
It is that very experience which has prompted me to come forward and lay my cards on the table and finally expose what has been transpiring behind the facade that is being presented to you by these institutions, because you deserve to know the truth for your own financial and intellectual protection.

A decade of DeviantArt5 September 2003 was a Friday, and I had just finished my first week of school at West Chester University. I was renting a single bedroom in a house owned by a nice elderly couple named Blanche and Harry. Harry fought in World War II and was captured during the Battle of the Bulge. He was listed as KIA for four months until his family learned that he was a prisoner of war, and when he returned they got married. Blanche was a piano teacher, which I thought was pretty awesome since I'm a classical pianist too. I only went to West Chester for one semester, and finished up my bachelor's degree at Kutztown after switching from music composition (lol) to fine art (also lol). I found out yesterday that both Blanche and Harry have passed away, in 2006 and 2012, sadly. It's a shame to see so many people from their generation going, as they have such interesting stories to tell. I hope that the carpeting in their bathroom lives on in their memory!A decade of DeviantArt1 year ago in Personal More Like This
