Murphy Apprenticeship updateHey all!Murphy Apprenticeship update6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone that donated to the Kickstarter, thanks for being patient. We hit a few delays due to the loss of our dog, Red, and my broken collar bone/shoulder which delayed The Wake. But me, my wife, and my students are almost done making the final touches, and we hope to have digital and hardcover editions available soon.
I'm thrilled to say that 3 out of 5 of my students have landed work with major publishers--two with Marvel and one with Boom! Studios...and Cafe Racer isn't even out yet. I'd love to think that the Apprenticeship had a hand in their success, but the truth is that each artist got work based on the caliber of the talent they possessed long before I got my hands on them. I did what I could for them on my end, which included sharing all my editorial contacts, vouching for their professionalism with publishers, and advising with contracts where I could. When Cafe Racer is published, I plan on handing out copies to every editor I can while

5 Ways to Avoid Being DiminishedThere's a discussion brewing in comics about artists being more diminished as of late--that readers, reviewers, and publishers are focusing too much on writers rather than the artists who draw the book. I agree it's happening, but I'm not sure it's worth sounding an alarm over. I never felt diminished, but maybe I'm part of the exception. Maybe it's because I'm an artist and a writer.5 Ways to Avoid Being Diminished11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Either way, I do have a few thoughts on what artists can do to pull themselves out from under the rug.
1. DON'T DRAW LIKE A COG.
If you conform to a "house style", then you're at higher risk of being treated like an interchangeable cog in the comics machine. Yes, you're more likely to get consistent work, but you won't stand out as much. Therefor you'll be sought after less by big name writers, you're less likely to make a lasting impression on reviewers and readers, and you'll have a harder time getting raises (12 others draw like you and for less money).
I also suggests inking yourself if it helps. Penc
5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

next week i will be posting the next strip and possibly another one. , by this i mean the next official chapter continuation. before that there is an alan ministrip i'm working on that is just.. ..well.. something nice, ull see not trolling this time XD
now , on publishing.
so far i have gotten a bunch of offers by publishers so that is not twhat is delaying it. personally i have my own preferance so i will probably take that road.
why it is still not out?
simple. going from the webcomic to standard comic format required a lot of work in creative cropping and reformatting.
this brought with itself a problem with making the writing fit.
this was an impossible task which required me to rewrite the whole damn thing.
flow has been significantly improved. small errors in continuity fixed,(like ally telling lisa that the bathroom is third door on the left when it is actually the second door... SHADDAP THAT'S IMPORTANT!)

Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 9 Ive been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artists works that I have come across. It started off as stock I cant provide myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.Fantastic Stock and Where to find it - Feature 93 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto

Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.

The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.
