one of the most important moments in television history
pssst hey tumblr… The Girly Book collection will be on sale from now until the end of the year, for 20% off.
also, the digital edition is still available, and still nobody’s buying it. Even though they really should
You guys, Girly was some really cool ass shit and is totally worth a read and even more worth a buy. I know you’re all dropping a hundered bucks on a 3ds or whatever you’re buying for Buying Shit Day, at least drop five bucks on a volume of Girly and get all the cool extra shit, and if you like it get what is honest-to-god the best produced webcomic collection I’ve ever seen.
Me and Lesnick are gonna be doing a stream on the digital comic business, webcomics, and all that fun stuff since we get asked about it enough. It’ll be this friday 11/15 at 6pm cst/7pm est.
Between the 2 of us we can probably answer any questions you might have on the field.
These are two really great people to take cues from so show your asses up!
I was sorting some old comics the other day, which meant I read a bunch of my old comics the other day, and I came across an arc from the Loeb/McGuinnes Batman/Superman series where Bats and Supes are bopping around different universes and encountering different versions of themselves. At one point, Bizarro rounds up a bunch of different versions of Supergirl to join in, and then I came to this page.
Now I want to say first that I LOVED the Loeb Batman/Superman arc and McGuinness’ art was a huge part of that, but this page is a giant wasted opportunity. These Supergirls represent a bunch of different pieces of comics history and they all look exactly the same. They have the same body, the same face, and three of the four of them are making the same expression. It makes me think of drawing flash you find on deviantart, where there is just a drawing of a person with no clothing or hair, and you can draw a costume around it.
Anyway this sort of thing has been written about much better than I will, but I spent a few warmups trying to make some different body types for them. I also changed some costume details, sometimes intentionally and sometimes I just wasn’t looking at the pictures while I was drawing leave me alone. t(‘. ’ t )
Another Castlebound update is in the works. What is it about? I don’t know!!! Something magical, probably. Or not. I promise nothing!!!
This was the first time I’ve ever seen a big color jump between my cintiq and my monitor, it looks sorta weird to me now.
On paper I was the invisible man for halloween, but we all know who I really was. (nsfw)
Those are the raddest, most bad ass glasses. I want a pair so bad now. This turned out amazing! Also I spot a girly figures in the back :O
Thanks, they were provided by my girlfriend, who had an even better costume than I did:
