NEW Justice League of AmericaGuess a lot of fans were saddened over Martian Manhunter not being a founding member of the Justice League, and was replaced with Cyborg instead.NEW Justice League of America3 years ago in Personal More Like This

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)2 years 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
Open for Work!As of the 3rd of July I will have finished a large project at work, so I'm opening up for commissions again. The sort of thing I do is what you can see here in my gallery - CGI of robots (Zoids, for example) or other such mechanical things.Open for Work!6 years ago in Personal More Like This
The kind of person who may be interested already has a clear idea of what their robot looks like, either in their head or on paper (even in doodle form!). From your sketches I'll create and render the 3D model.
What you'll get in the end is:
* A whole bunch of rendered images of your robot in a few cool poses
* A rendered turntable animation of your robot
* The actual 3D model that you can rotate and zoom to view at different angles.
All this for the reduced sum of $65 (£40)! This is a significant reduction over my normal fee, cos, hey, I need the money! If you're interested, send me a message. I'm up for any kind of robot design - don't be put off if your ideas look differ
A Naked New YearFor the record I welcomed 2013 in a proper dress but I did want to address my new fascination with nudity. For years I have been doing shots that have craftily avoided the visual of the "nether regions". Lately I have abandoned that rule and for good reason. It is my opinion that the female body is the most beautiful and incredible thing ever created. I dont see any shame in it and I believe in smashing down the old stereotypes that sex and sexuality is a dirty thing. I have been researching alot on what it is that defines the border between porn and art and I think it is about time that we ladies reclaimed our naughty bits from the dirtbags and the pornogrpahers who have taken sole, visual possession of them. I believe that nudity, full female nudity can be portrayed with elegance and artistry. I also believe that sexuality can be portrayed with absolute and utmost dignity and elegance. I realize that many people think that photos and visuals depicting things such as masturbation andA Naked New Year3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Creators Rights at ConventionsConventions have become big business in the last few years. More shows keep popping up, attendance keeps rising, and there's more money than ever being passed around as comics continue to merge with pop culture/big media/corporate sponsorships into what I've been calling Supershows.Creators Rights at Conventions7 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the most part, I think this is a great thing for the creators and our industry. While a few might miff at the thought of comics being intruded upon by other industries, it means more chances for starving artists to make money, more money for commissions and prints, and chances to travel to exotic locations that were never previously on our agenda.
More and more frequently, creators are being lured to shows all over the world with travel costs (at least partially) comped. When they arrive, they'll be met by capable handlers, lines of cheering fans, and fancy parties while they're given the brief whiff of stardom that's usually reserved for Mick Jagger.
But not always.

Obsolete InkingLately I've been doing work for DC Direct--the wing of DC in charge of statues, toys, etc. It's been a nice break from PRJ. The money is good, and it hasn't been soulless like I imagined. Corporate gigs can go either way--sometimes they want you to do exactly what "they" want, other times they want you to do your thing unencumbered. Luckily this was the latter.Obsolete Inking4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The rates for toy designs are broken down into three parts: you get paid for the sketches, the final pencils and the inks. For this gig, the inking rate was higher than my normal inking rate. It felt good, but then I realized that 25% of my fee was for inks. And it raised an unsettled concern that's been on my mind.
How long will inkers be needed?
In the old days they needed inkers because computers weren't yet being used in print. I forget the name of the machine that preceded the scanner (process cameras?), but it was low-tech enough that i
