    Hey everybody
    Here's my self deprecating art thread.
    Comments and (helpful) Critiques are always welcome

    First up, a few Instagram doodles:

    Didn't realize we couldn't post instagram pics, so over the weekend I'll figure out how to get pics up instead of links
    Graphic designer and I can't figure out how to post pictures on a simple forum... good job, me!

    anyways, Enjoy :woot:

    It's pretty simple you just have to host the images on a site like photobucket .


    Nice stuff. I feel like graphic design is an underrated skill when it comes to comic art. When you break it down, a lot of comic art is just graphic design. Mapping out form and shape, colors, positive/negative space into something that works as a cohesive and engaging composition within a panel or panel to panel.

    Yeah, composition is huge, it's one of the things I'm really trying to work on in my framing.
    it's easy to just draw a figure on the page, but to create something dynamic is the difficulty

    You have to learn to SUGGEST the scales.
    When I was copying artists, George Perez was who I first learned to do that with.
    Hal Foster, Frank Frazetta both were AMAZING at it in their ink work.

    You'll get there bud. I did a Viking Captain America that has suggested plate armor on the last page of my art thread if you want to look

    Yeah I hear what your sayin', and I can pull off the suggested thing pretty well now
    Even at the time, I knew I didn't have to do all of em, but I was going for kind of a painted feel crossed with the comic style, so I wanted to get the detail in there

    If I were to do it now, I'd approach it much differently, but I still dig how it came out

    and thanks b-man!

    Yeah I did that with a drawing or two myself, just because I wanted to make as detailed as I could.

    It's not comic art, but one form my art takes is lyrics and music, and I decided I wanted to share this song with y'all and get some (hopefully respectful) feedback. I wrote this after the Paris shooting, and yet it stays relevant because of the violent species we are:

    Another day, another death
    Another round of baited breath
    Waiting for congress to act
    While bracing for the next attack
    Lobby money clouds their heads
    Their talking points say 'f**k the dead'!
    Theres too much money to be made
    And new consumers everyday

    So next in line, step right up
    The next to die, the next to die
    And next in line can cock the gun
    Cuz next time you won't bat an eye!

    Well god forbid they lose a cent
    There's revenue in every death
    The bottom line is six feet down
    And autopsies are disallowed
    Go from red to in the black
    More profit from each new attack
    Dont block the path from here to rich
    Theyll shoot and leave you in a ditch

    So next in line, step right up
    The next to die, the next to die
    And next in line can drop the gun
    Cuz next time you won't bat an eye!

    They let kids die while they protect
    The ***holes who their cash elects
    Got no remorse and no respect
    For motivations that are so suspect
    The congressmen who genuflect
    To lobbyists who cut the check
    Who push for all that we reject
    Should f**k right off and join the dead!

    very strong lyrics there :up:

    this part is my favorite:
    Well god forbid they lose a cent
    There's revenue in every death
    The bottom line is six feet down

    hey thanks!
    I write a lot of lyrics, but was pretty proud of these, despite their inflammatory nature
