Webcomic Beacon #108 – IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUUUUUUUU!

Webcomic Beacon #108 – IT’S ALL ABOUT YOUUUUUUUU!

Jillyfoo (Demon Eater) and Nate (Jazz and Jess) joins Fes, Tanya, and Mark to discuss Self-Insertion, Mary Sues, Canon Sues, and Anti-Sues. Some debate rages on about what characters may fall prey to which category, as well as bringing up the flaws in writing things as such. We also put a bit of hate into Twilight… because it’s so deserving of our disrespect.

Nobody else is going to draw your comics.

To all comic artists and graphic designers:

For many years, I've got a very tight grip on my pens. A very, very tight grip, as I thought it was the most precise way to have absolute control over the drawing.

Plus I used to draw for hours and hours, ocasionally stopping to take a glance 'round and realize I'm still in 'this' world and not the one I created. I've spent many, many hours not only drawing characters but illustrating backgrounds and populating them with subtle, almost obsessive textures, all proudly hand-drawn, panel after panel, page after page.

And for many years, I've heard people suggesting me to ease my style of drawing. That I could end hurting my tendons and muscles. But, in spite of those suggestions by people who have been on the business for much longer than me (actually, I've never been 'in the business') I kept with my bad habits, and continued strangling my drawing pens as if I was -squeezing- the ink out of them. You know, kinda like when your parents keep telling you to sit straight and you nevertheless prefer to get a loosier pose on the chair when they're not around.

Pronto Comics: the new face in Illustrated stories.

So where do I start?

as my fans well know I have been working with a group of guys who took a course in writting and illustrating comics, I met a couple of them in early 09 during the NY Comic Con and Shortly I joined with them to help illustrate a story for their anthology "For a Price, Bounty Hunters and Other Scum". After the Anthology was finished, we were hooked on seeing our work in print and online. I then figured, "Hey, why not publish my own comics with these guys?"

So I am officially stating that Monster Lover: Destiny's Path, A Call to Destiny: Reloaded, Warmage: Rebirth, and Shadow-Root will now be under the pronto comics Label and will be featured on our new site on Ning.com; along with the work of Artists like Dominic Sporano, David Curtis and Many Others...
