:new:4.23 The deadline approacheth! For those of you still working on your entries, better get a move on!
This was such a success last year that I'm doing it again for my 25th birthday!
Pick your favorite story from the list below and draw a scene or characters from it! I try to be diverse in my writing; Action, drama, science fiction, romance, humans, robots... There should be something in there for everybody. This year's pool has some old classics and some new favorites. Some characters have reference pictures already, but some have never been visually depicted before. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Some stori

At the moment I'm a shepherdess in Scotland (but I'm American) with three small kids and a handsome husband. In my spare time I'm attempting to draw from my many adventures and experiences as a firefighter, military helicopter mechanic, war vet, medic, science major, musician, world explorer etc etc to write a Transformers novel.

Not literally, of course! But between some seriously annoying technology problems (99.9% due to my computer ignorance) causing me to fall behind, and me frying endless brain cells as I try to finish typing up six 22 page comic scripts for my pretend mini-series... I have not done well with "Intro to Comic Book Art." But that is no judgement on the class or the instructor. It's alllll me and my wretched luck lol!
I think what I need to do is back off of art for now and focus on this 6 issue mini-series comic script. This is a continuation of what I have been learning in the "comic book writing" classes at Comics Experience. Since I am a hands
This Comics Experience place rocks! I've just finished the Advanced Comic Book Writing class (I'm going to re-take both writing classes in the future) and now I've signed up for the Intro To Comic Book Art class. Which starts August 30th so I have a month to do some serious perspective practice before I have to dive in...
Wow I've never done this before! It has been a very crazy birthday today: starting in France and ending in Scotland, celebrating my birthday in two countries LOL!
