My Bio
Hi there! I'm Morgan. I draw. I do a lot of portraits. I love my Copic markers, and my Copics love me. I also made a comic book with UC Berkeley's Center for Race and Gender, about Black superheroines. It's cool and you can find it in my gallery.

The Oshun Honey comic is a team effort. Still, I'm the person doing the artwork, so when I got sick for a whole month it put this comic back by a bit. But we're trying to get back on track, so you'll see more pictures coming shortly!
I'm @OshunHoneyComic, and I'm a #NewDeviant. Here's a bit about me: I'm making a short (~16 page) comic with Black superheroines. We've got the heroes and villains figured out, but we could use some help with the story. We're gonna be updating it on ...

Good morning, again, Morgan. Again thanks for all the faves -- and now the DA watch. I'm watching you also for your Oshun Honey comics. I've decided to turn some writing I've had a while into the script for a graphic novel, and I'm happy to learn from artists who know how to create comics in all their phases -- especially comics and graphic novels that have a social conscience. Kind of late for a baby boomer like me, but heck I'm going for it all.
Regards,
Ed

It's never too late to start a new project, and the later you delay, the later you'll be finished. I'm glad to hear that you're trying something new. I appreciate you feedback, and I'd be happy to give you any advice on making comics. My Oshun Honey comic was my first time really making something 'shippable.' I had played around with some sketchy scenes in the past, but nothing I would be proud to share. It's always hardest to get started.

A few tips I have:
* Make the script as short as possible. You don't have a lot of space like you do in a book. Every word counts, so cut cut cut!
* Talking head shots can get boring, so try to play with different camera angles.
* If you choose to draw traditional like me, draw big, and scale down when printing / uploading. It gives you a bit of room to make mistakes, as the mistakes will scale down too!
* Lettering is really hard and takes a long time to learn. Depending on when you want to finish, it might just be better to buy a font pack and letter with the computer (although hand lettering is prettier)

I hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing your progress!

Thanks! I'm not really a DA pro either. I hop on and off every few months, but I'm trying to be more regular. I've found DA to be a pretty nice community. I hope you come to enjoy it!
