Tutorials and Teaching

Okay, when it comes to comics (and art in general) the understanding of light is so important. I’m going to design and offer a shadowing tutorial. I think this will coincide with online YouTube videos to help demonstrate technique. Hmmm, now a release date? How about March 15, 2013? YAY! I have a project for myself. If you haven’t made it big yet DON’T STOP CREATING ART! You have to give yourself assignments to keep busy, otherwise you’ll stop drawing and dwell on the negatives. KEEP DRAWING my friends!

Fast as the Speed of Light

Okay, the Flash was a hot item last year. Now I have to think of something more clever with the use of light and more bright (or at least as dynamic) as the use of reds and pinks. Hmmm, its difficult not knowing if I’m going to get a booth for Phoenix Comicon. I hope so….that comicon has gotten HUGE! It would be awesome to show. Haven’t decided on the Long Beach thing because of the time conflict. Gonna hafta make some big decisions soon.

Long Beach!

Okay, this is awkward…I want to show at the Long Beach Comicon but there may be a scheduling conflict with something else for my work. ARGH!
I don’t know what to do. Hmmmm, I’ll have to work on that one. In the mean time I’m coloring Harley Quinn and Elektra! I hope I can get a booth at the Phoenix Comicon as soon as someone else bails out and I move up on the waiting list.

Harley Quinn

I read Marvel comics more than DC comics but I have to admit, Harley Quinn is an awesome character. She and the Joker make a perfect couple. Of course, if I’m going to go to the Long Beach comicon I have to do more DC characters. This is what I have so far with Harley Quinn. I don’t know if I should make her look more sinister or keep the cute innocence that automatically comes with chibi characters.

Long Beach Comicon?

Well, I’m a little disappointed about the Phoenix Comicon but then I thought that maybe its for the best. I need to branch out and tap into other markets instead of just staying here in my back yard. I had a lot of success when I drove to Tucson so maybe this is fate telling me I need to go out there and find other venues and stop being afraid to push my artistic style. Hmmmm, food for thought.

Coloring Venom

Well, I didn’t get a booth for the Phoenix Comicon. I’ve been trying since November of 2011 but the purchase process was a convoluted path of clicks. For someone who is semi-computer literate, it was a frustrating process. Then I received an e-mail telling me all the artist alley booths were sold out! (When I finally got to the window I needed to get to online, it was too late.) Yes, I was upset and yes, I sent a nasty e-mail which I now regret. Today’s lesson: NEVER send an e-mail when you are angry, upset, frustrated, or annoyed. I sent another e-mail apologizing but I know I look like a jackass to the Phoenix Comicon promoters. To take my mind off my stupidity, I practiced my coloring techniques on Venom.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wow, it seems like time just flies! Arizona, yup I’m way over here in Phoenix, was just celebrating it’s 100th anniversary as a state (from 192 to 2012) and now its 2013. Happy New Year everyone! Here is my new Batman I’m working on. Why not bring the new year in with the Dark Knight?Image
