Mr Happy 1 page 6
First off gotta sing the praises of my iPad Pro in conjunction with Clip Studio Paint. This new tool in my arsenal has allowed me incredible freedom to work practically anywhere even when working a 61 hour work week. I use it at work when things are slow, Ive taken it to restaurants and out to karaoke and etc. In spite of my work schedule I was able to complete this page in 5 days. Admittedly there are no backgrounds to speak of which made things easier but Im still quite pleased. Im currently just using my cintiq for doing my lettering.

Now as to the page itself, Mr Happy of course tries to avoid conflict in a rather flippant manner, which ended with what should have been predictable results. In a lot of old kaiju films the monsters seem to have anywhere from primate to low human intelligence. Now while Im fairly certain this beastie has never seen The Killer Condom, I'm positive it recognizes an insult when it hears one.

Mr Happy 1 page 5
So lately I've been working my nuts off to make up for being out of work earlier this year due to an injury related to my diabetes. Been putting in 60 hours a week which means despite my best efforts I end up falling asleep with my Cintiq in my lap as I try and work on art. However with the influx of income, I bought an iPad Pro (12.9 inch) for fairly cheap at the pawn shop. Been watching :iconrobertmarzullo: on youtube for a long while now and he started using an iPad Pro for art and I was stunned by the results, plus you can't beat the portability of it. Started off practicing with Procreate (because its free) before subscribing to the Clip Studio Paint app ($25 a year). A cheap price but it still rankles me that I can just buy the full program for my Mac but I gotta subscribe to use an app. That aside I can't knock how much I like it and the fact that I can work in the same format no matter what I happen to be using (MacBook or iPad). Felt a little weird drawing on it at first with the Apple Pencil and all but I'm growing to love it perhaps even more than my Cintiq. I can hold it like a sketchbook and no more temperamental F'ing cords to deal with. Hopefully since I can take this to work with me I can get more art done when business is slow. Its been driving me crazy to have such low output.

So this page is the final full reveal of our lovely "little" sea beastie. Its supposed to be a lamprey kaiju but it ended up looking more like some mutant leach to me. Turned out more wormy than eel-like and the mouth is all wrong because I wanted to do all these teeth hanging down like on the cover. Lamprey mouths however are physically much more like suction cups with lots of teeth pointing in towards the center. Also they can sort of close their mouths which can make them look like either a scary penis or a shit weasel from Stephen King's Dreamcatcher.

Southern Comics Handbook: The Blue Baller
The bullied becomes the bully. What happens when a man who has been beaten down his entire life suddenly finds he has power? Why he revenges himself on the world and lords his power over others, that what. This guy was initially developed while playing Champions Online as a nemesis for my hard on hero Viagraaaah! A giant phallus that shot beams out of its head! Who better than someone called the Blue Baller to be the foil for a heroic erection? Obviously I ended up revising him for my Mr Happy comic series but games like Champions and City of Heroes have led me to create a vast number of characters for my superhero universe.

Mr Happy 1 - pg 4
So finally done with page 4. Summer has ramped up and work is slowing me waaaay down but ya gotta pay those bills. Maybe I should start a Parteon? If I could make a couple a grand a month I could afford to just make this comic my full-time job. I dunno, what do yall think?

Another thing that slowed me down is that I ended up scrapping all the figures other than Mr Happy and redrawing the fleeing people. I just wasn't happy with them and if I'm not going to do my best work on my own comic whats the point eh? Gotta hold myself to a standard even when it's driving me crazy that my page isn't done yet. I'm dying to share my stories with you all but I and you all deserve my best efforts.

Mr Happy 1 - pg 3
Ok so on this page we see that the cover isn't a gimmick but it actually pays off with something that happens in the book itself. Wish more big time comics did this. I'm pretty sick of comics that have exciting covers but the content isn't reflected in the story within, the ole bait in switch steals another $4 bucks! Not so with Southern Comics friends! If
it's on the cover its gonna be in the book!

So we see the beach is not so idyllic as it first appeared. Who would have thought in a superhero comic that local danger would be prevalent? Luckily there is a (somewhat oblivious) hero hanging out on the beach!

Interests
So I got tagged by :iconblazeknightdt: and decided this might be fun so here goes.

🌟 How old are you? Middleaged

🌟What gender and pronouns do you identify with? Sorry, I don't go in for this 72 gender crap. I'm a man, nuff said.

🌟 How social are you? Online, not overly social I'd say, I really need to better utilize my various social medias. But in real life, I'm extremely social. I generally prefer to deal with people face to face, even over talking on the phone to someone.

🔆 ART Not sure exactly what this meant as its just a single word so I'm left to interpret as best I can. Obviously yes, I do art. I largely work in illustration of a comic book type or style. I'm also proficient in pure illustration, that its illustration that does not have the particular stylization of comic book art. I'm also skilled at photomanipulations, painting and airbrushing but Ive been working almost exclusively digitally for several years now.

🌟 How long have you been on DeviantART? Wow, 10 years, had no idea it had been so long.

🌟 What are your future plans for the site? Continuing to use the site as a place to showcase my art and solicit work but now also to promote my comic book Mr Happy. Mr Happy 1: Cover

🌟 Do you want to pursue a career in art? Oh yes, in some fashion or another but what I'd really love to do is at least make a living producing a Mr Happy comic book and at best have a sprawling comic book company the likes of Marvel in the 90s and cameoing in a mega-successful series of films about my comic book universe. Hey, might as well dream big if you're gonna dream.

🌟 On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your art skills? Honestly, I'd have to say a 5. I do some things reasonably well but I'm FAR behind where I want to be. I can point to artists here half my age who run circles around me. It's mostly because I allowed myself to be discouraged several times in my life from pursuing art. There were stretches where I didn't draw a thing for almost a decade. If I'd been committed from the time I was at least in high school forward I could arguably at the level of pros like Jim Lee. Lesson, don't ever give up because if you stop using it you do indeed lose it. 

🌟 Do you ever plan on leaving DeviantART? I don't foresee any reason to. I've had to take hiatuses due to outside circumstances from time to time but this site is still my favorite art community.

🌟 Who is your favorite visual artist? Jeez, no way I could name just one! I've been inspired by so many people over the years. Gun to my head maybe Frank Frazetta as his career was very diverse with his art being used for comics, movies, animation, metal albums, fantasy books and more I'm sure. I'd love for my body of work to bee all over the place like that. Man was a legend!

🌟 Do you use a tablet or a mouse? Currently, I draw using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD which is really nice but soon I hope to purchase an iPad Pro 12.9 inch. It will grant me more flexibility and mobility that my current set up does.

🌟 How long does it usually take you to complete your artwork? Depends really, anywhere from a day to a week depending on the project. For instance, a comic book page can take 3 days or more. This is because I have to pencil, ink, color, letter everything myself.

🌟 How well do you handle criticism? Very well. Talk to a few editors at a comic con and you grow a thick skin fast! You have to be able to take criticism if you want to make it as an artist in my opinion.

🔆 RELATIONSHIPS Happily married for many years now.

🌟 What is your sexuality/romantic preference? I luvs tha women!

🌟 Are you currently in a relationship? Previously answered.

🌟 Is your partner/spouse a deviant? No, while she is in fact, a creative herself (she makes jewelry) she has never shown an interest in joining the community. Perhaps she should showcase some of her jewelry here.

🌟 How long have you been together? Longer than some of you have been alive.

🔆 TAG EIGHT PEOPLE HERE!! NO EXCEPTIONS!! Naaaahhh, do it if ya want.

Hi Bracey!

I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on one of my favorite superhero OCs!

Hello there Bracey. 
I wanted to say that I love your content and your idea including your character Mr.Happy . And I love the character due to the looks, personality and powers but you know , hopefully one day Mr. Happy will have his  own movie which need to have , Good CGI , a good plot , make it as a actual movie which will be like other Super hero Movie such as the Amazing  Spider man.  And finally it would need to have good design that would fit the movie theme , and it could be PG-13 or Rated R if  the movie would include  blood or anything that not for a younger audience.
but anyway  keep up  the good work with your idea

Thank you so much for your enthusiastic fandom! I appreciate everyone who finds my work or creations worthy of their attention. I to would love to see a Mr Happy movie made one day and I would have to be assured that it would be done well before I signed off on it. Mr Happy would likely be a PG-13 flick as I will have some adult stuff going on but not buckets of blood like Deadpool or Logan. I also think it would make for a kickass cartoon show!

Thank you so very much and I promise I am full steam ahead with Mr Happy. I have so many stories I want to tell with him starting fairly small and building up to some heavy duty cosmic level epicness!

Hi Bracey!

I saw you had a well-done superhero persona, and was hoping to get some pointers from you on how to make a superhero persona of my own!
