Do you know what I find myself telling almost every artist I critique?




Take a risk, make a leap. Even if you have all of the technical skills you could ever need, there’s always something that you’re shying away from.

Take that thing on! Consider it an artistic adventure. Your comfort zone might be a cozy little one room cottage or a…

Know what will help you get out of your comfort zone? Draw a friggin’ comic. You suck at backgrounds? To bad, you’ll have to put them in. Terrible at hands?

Scene calls for something you’ve never drawn before? Better get a reference and learn real fast.

GUEST TUESDAY: Perspective guides!

Time to work on issue number 3, first fleshing out the outline, then writing all the scenes. Hopefully, I won’t go over the page limit this time.

Well, I am over my page budget. I can probably condense some of the panels. I have to go through the document anyway and flesh out descriptions and edit everything.

Going to flesh out my outline into a script for issue 2. Hoping it isn’t too much for ~22 pages. I am excited to flesh out an action scene.

I have outlines of each character and the rough outline of the entire plot. Now I am plotting out the first few issues.
