Thirty-five years ago one of Mattel’s lead designers, Roger Sweet, presented the first concept designs for what would become “He-Man.” He crafted three different models showing He-Man as a barbarian, a soldier and a spaceman. Mattel selected the barbarian model to be the basis of a new toy line for th

To Battle The Horde
“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

When inspiration attacks (and when it doesn't)
Everyone is probably familiar with this scenario. You're trying to draw something, but you can't find the inspiration. Or maybe you're trying to write a story, or an assignment for school, but you just can't find the right words. Or maybe you have to tackle a creative problem and you just can't figure it out.
So you rack your brain for the right ideas, but they're just not coming to you. Or maybe some of them are, but they're lousy ideas born (at least in part) from desperation. Either way, you're just not really happy with them.
That evening, when you're standing in the shower, you suddenly get a burst of inspiration. Suddenly, you know exactly what you want to write, or draw. Or maybe inspiration attacked when you were in the bathroom, or when you were jogging, or on your way to work or school. Maybe it happened when you were lying in bed, h

WHICH TYPE OF CARTOONIST ARE YOU?There are two basic types of cartoonists. It's not based on which subjects they draw. Or how successful they are. Or whether one cartoonist's dad can beat up the other cartoonist's dad. (Unless you happen to have the stronger dad.) It has to do with the originality of the work. But I mean something very specific by that:WHICH TYPE OF CARTOONIST ARE YOU?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most cartoonists enjoy drawing existing characters, like Spiderman, Naruto, Finn from "Adventure Time," and others. Recreating an established character, in different poses and in different scenes, is a very important skill for a cartoonist. In fact, most professional artists primarily draw other people's characters. For example, the artists who draw Spiderman and Batman in today's comics are not the people who invented those characters. And the people who draw the storyboards for the animated shows you love probably didn't invent those characters, either. Although someone had to invent the characters in a video game, it takes many more
The legends were true?!Geek culture has many myths and legends, ranging from fabled disks and cassettes containing unreleased sequels of beloved games to Easter Eggs found only within the code of early versions of certain titles.The legends were true?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.
Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….

Irrational Confidence and how it Helps the ArtistFolks,Irrational Confidence and how it Helps the Artist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was doing some studying of construction this morning and it got me to thinking on some stuff that might be helpful to you crazy kids that wanna break into comics as artists.
When I was coming up, I had an irrational confidence. I didn't know it was irrational at the time, but I can now see it upon reflection. I just KNEW that I was gonna be able to do this one day.
But when I go back and look at old drawings I did, I think, "What the hell was I thinking?" I mean, I was BAD. I definitely could draw, but I was a complete amateur in every way. A hobbyist. I was a guy that had a better jump shot than his friends and somehow I knew that meant I could play in the NBA.
This confidence could have been a hindrance, though, if it was the wrong type of confidence. My confidence wasn't that I was already good enough to draw professionally. My confidence was in that I would look at art and think, "I can figure out how to do that".
I've seen plenty of guys along the way that had the w

$19- Start Drawing: Techniques for Pencil Portraits
Seven years ago when I was struggling to learn portraiture, I remember saying to my mom, "When I "get" this, I'm going to teach everyone how to do it!" So here we are, seven years later and I'm ready to share the knowledge I've discovered!
After years of studying with professional portrait artists, by reading tons of books on how to draw the face, and by studying the works of master artists such as Sargent, Bouguereau, and Vanderpoel, I'm ready to share the most helpful information I've learned with you all!

Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,

My goal is to offer some useful perspective about art from a professional point of view, regarding schooling, career, motivation, jobs, publishing, etc. I know it's difficult for many of you, with no family connections in the publishing business, to learn the ropes. And without knowing the ropes, it's hard to break into the field, which becomes a catch-22. But as I've often said, I'm your professional cartooning contact. My aim is to be helpful.
