Tutorial Tuesday: Comic Composition (part 1)So you want to make a comic book? That is awesome! Let's make sure it doesn't suck...
A comic book, though dominated by pictures, is more like a language than anything else. It's communicating a story, information, and/or ideas to somebody else. In order to communicate clearly there are certain rules that need to be followed so that everyone understands what the story, info, or idea is trying to convey, much like a language.
There is alot of rules to comic book and sequential art composing. So we're going to do this in two parts. Part one is the bare bones basics. Next week will be part two, where we talk about some higher level concepts. Still the basics, but part two is useless to you unless you understand this part today. So lets get started.

Now I know thats a little bit harsh language but this excuse really pisses me off. I'm not angry at the person who uses the excuse "they tell me I can't," I'm pissed at the people who tells the person they can't. Seriously, anyone who says you can't do it is making up shit and doesn't know what they're talking about.
I've heard many different variations of this excuse. "THEY" can be your mother, father, brother, sister, best friend, teacher. "They" can be people on forums, or professionals you've talked to that have their head so far up their ass they forgot what it was like to start out. But no matter who "They" are, the fact of the matter is they don't know anything about what you're trying to do. So what qualifies them to judge if you can do it or not?
What reasons did they give you to back up this wild claim of "you can't do it?" Was it because You don't have the education? the skills? Is

Tutorial Tuesday: Comic Composition (part 2)Okay so like a month ago I had done the first part of my Comic Composition. There I talked about the bare basic fundamentals to the language of comics. If you want to make comics either professionally or just for fun I highly recommend you go back and read that one. There I talked abut Panel Direction, Panel Layout, and Word Balloons. Some of you you might read it and go "Duh Shawn, This is obvious." But it never ceases to amaze me on how some seemingly obvious fundamentals are lost to creators starting out.

OC Info For Requests & CommissionsI have a lot of people draw me via point commissions or free requests on a regular basis, so I thought I'd put together a journal entry that groups all of my references and character info. I hope this proves to be helpful to you when you are drawing me/Miss Shady.OC Info For Requests & Commissions4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

She is an insomniac and due to this often occupies a distorted reality within her own head. Suffers from paranoia and outbursts of rage. Occasional self hatred.
Red or brown hair, normally wavy and shoulder length/just below the shoulders.
Bloodshot brown eyes. This means the whites of her eyes are pretty red, but as for the colour of her actual eyes, they're brown. Many people get this wrong, so it'll be great if it is included!

Sculpture commission info/policyBasic information:Sculpture commission info/policy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before contacting me about a commission carefully read the pricing and policy information, and keep in mind that lots of time and material (costs) go into sculpting so i cant afford to sell them cheaply.
I will only work on 1 or 2 commissions at a time but will maintain a reserving list, when your on that list i will contact you when i'm ready to start on the commission.
Before i will start sculpting your commission i will make a sketch first send this to the commissioner and when approved i will ask for a deposit (which will be half of the total sum) i will not start on the commission untill i received the deposit.
I will keep the commissioner updated with lots of work in progress photos and the commissioner has freedom to ask for changes (note that when a sculpture has progressed to far the changes cant be to radical anymore (especially after baking)
So to make the progress go smoothly think over carefully what you want your sculpture to look like (pose/color etc.)
