CAPTAIN STONE IS MISSING
A Madefire motion book by Christina McCormack & Liam Sharp
Without going into all the wonderful enhancements (not only frame motion and dramatic juxtapositions, but also musical scoring and sound and flash effects) possible with the Madefire motion books process, it should be emphasized lest one get lost in all the bells and whistles that the actual

Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you want to ask yourself first. There is such a vast array of genre and sub-genre, technique, approach, and so on, that it's important to be clear where you want to go with your work at the outset – and you have to be REALLY honest and tough on yourself.
Do you want to draw:
If you're into the capes and tights and you want to go mainstream you're going to have to want it incredibly badly, as the competition is the most extreme I've ever known it right now. There seems to be more titles than ever - and with the digital revolution more people are capable of producing sleek, mainstream quality art - but right across the

I Got Angry Pt.6Something else that get's me angry...I Got Angry Pt.61 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why can't artist's be EXPECTED to experiment? To try new things? To be innovative?
Why is it that drawing in the same style forever is viewed as THE BEST approach?
How do we unlearn this?
How do we encourage creators to be daring, and our readers to be more open and daring too?
I admit it.
I chop and I change, and if you're looking for a book that is consistent then you'd better not invest any time in me! As a result I've lost many fans over the years. People at cons sometimes say 'where did you go after The Hulk? I thought you must have left the industry...'
They never knew I was always here, but always changing.
Case in point - 'Captain Stone is Missing...' (FREE on dA here: www.deviantart.com/art/Captain…) may be, in my opinion, the best work of my career, but consistent it is not!!!
For me there are artists tha
The Myth of DigitalI read about a little girl finding her first Teen Titans comic in a shop a few days ago, and her excitement at holding that comic in her hands. Owning it. And it was a genuinely touching story – the next generation meets paper, print, and the characters they love from the TV. The story went on to talk about digital, and it being no substitute for the real thing. You can’t own the object in the digital world; You can’t treasure it – so the argument went. The response – and there’s always a response these days – was almost unanimously pro-print, though the author conceded room for both.The Myth of Digital1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I spent the last couple of days mulling this over, because this is a mental barrier we are up against – a false meme. And I don’t believe it. It’s not what I’m seeing in practice.
The first point is that the girl found a comic of her favourite TV characters. She didn’t know, most likely, that they were characters in a

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.

HOW TO GET PUBLISHEDThis is an old piece I wrote and posted a while ago, but just recently people have been asking what my experiences were with regard to publishing and getting published - so here it is again, with a few new notes added about dA and Madefire!HOW TO GET PUBLISHED2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a very honest view based on 27 years experience as a writer, artist and publisher. The point here is to try to HELP you go into the business enlightened and with open-eyes, knowing what to expect. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT YOU OFF! However, you should know that getting into comics is NOT easy - as too many people frequently imagine - and neither is it a glamorous 'rock-star' existence. It is hard work, as are all trades, and it should be treated as such. I see too many people despondent and badly hurt by their experience, and this can be avoided if you know what you are getting into right from the outset.
Getting into comics is something a lot of people want to know how to do, but there's a lot of questions you w

What 'Freelancer' means.The term "freelancer" comes from the early 19th Century. Originally, the term was a "free lance", which meant a knight or mercenary who was not sworn to any king or nation. A man free to use his lance in the name of anyone who was willing to pay his price for service. When his job was done or his patron refused to pay for his services, the man would leave and take on any other job he agreed to. In this day and age, that translates to not being tied to any specific company as an employee. You work for who you want to work for.What 'Freelancer' means.3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The common confusion we see today among business and individuals attempting to hire freelancers is a fundamental misunderstanding of what the term "freelancer" comes from. The assumption is that because the term has "free" in it, that it means the person is supposed to work for free, or only for whatever the business/individual is willing to donate if they are happy. If you are ever faced with this situation, just remember what "freelancer" really comes from and e

I was wrong about Pipi speciesPipi is a Javan Munia (Lonchura leucogastroides), which is a species of finches found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. Before I thought she was a Striated finch (Lonchura striata), also known as white rumped munia. But Pipi doesn't have a white rump. I thought the white part would show up later but after more research, I'm sure she is a javan munia. Indonesia has white rumped munia too but mostly located in Sumatra island, not in Java. These two species are very identical except for the color of the rump.I was wrong about Pipi species2 years ago in Personal More Like This
