“That lady is my hero.”
It has been exceptionally heartening to watch people grow to love a character I admired almost instantly whens he was introduced, not just for her unique talents but for her strong character.
I’m on the final leg of drawing a graphic novel (54 pages left to ink!!! aaaaaa!!) and am currently in the RRAAR GODZILLA stage of mental sanity. Which is to say, there isn’t much and everything hurts. Especially my shoulders.
I drew the above comic when I finished my second graphic novel, The War at Ellsmere, back in 2008. The mental process I go through drawing a graphic novel remains the same, despite the fact that I’m now a full-time cartoonist, instead of an occasional one. ;) Funny how the line between professional and amateur is … uh, pretty much non-existent.
Oh yeah, and my most recent graphic novel, Friends With Boys, had 3 typos in it. Nnnoooooo.
Yes. Yessssssssssssss… Replace graphic novel with season of animated episodes, diet Coke with lemon ginger tea, and typos with retakes, and this is me and my experience too. After two years of joy and toil and a million ups and downs, we are just over two weeks out from Book 1 of Korra being completed, aired, and all said and done––all while we’re buried under a mountain of Book 2 production. “WOOOO! DONE!” will last for about a day… then this career of my own making will punch me right in the face again, as it does every day. And I still won’t be able to draw well enough. Or fast enough. Sigh…
FAITH Y R U SO AWSUM? Good luck finishing the book! I can’t wait to read it!
EDIT: A TYPO! …a millions ups and downs… Yeah, time to go home.
Being a professional software developer, I can’t say I go through anything similar to this process.
But as an writer and would-be author, oh wow yes! Exactly! Yes!
Owls confirmed to be the creepiest birds ever. LOOK AT THE FUCKING THINGS. If you fail to notice the one on the left fucking SWALLOWING a rat, then you have the dude singing some satanic chant or something next to him, and then you have those two other fucking psychos synchronized to make you feel creeped the fuck out with their soulless dance of FUCKING DOOM.
I stumbled onto this comic wandering through Deviant Art and got permission to host it on my blog:
I know in the past I’ve ranted about the adage “A picture is worth one thousand words” and how it has been used to demean the worth of the written word but here I can see nothing but homage to both image and word both in its medium (comic) and in the story’s telling (the artist’s 1000 words to her parents and the girl’s 1000 words to the artist). Both art and the written have their specialty when conveying thought and emotion and this comic beautifully represents that.
Not to ignore the comic’s other masterfully used techniques and its overall message but that was somewhat I wanted to comment on. Check out Wenqing’s other work on her Deviant Art page, or follower her on Facebook.
Okay so this video definitely contains adult content.
And wow. Best visual depicting of a human’s reaction to visualizing a Great Old One ever. Also what was going on in that woman’s short, seriously?
This is an actual music video for the music you hear in the background. The music is by someone called DyE and the song’s name is Fantasy.
Lots of 8-Bit goodness combined with tons of video game and pop culture references. It’s a fun video to watch, even if you aren’t a fan of the music. The video was constructed by a lot of people, primary credits going to Bru & Boegie. Music credits go to Goldfish.
