This is where a title would go if I had one

comixology:

We’re live-tweeting from Comic-Con International 2014 with tons of Con goings-on. Just follow our twitter to see our little corner of SDCC.

Didn’t get any writing done tonight, but I worked on a little character design… Well, in my head anyway. then wrote it all down in as much detail as I could.

Soon as I get my hands on some mechanical pencil led and start doing daily drawings again to shake off roughly a year of rust, I’ll get the designs down on paper and flesh things out.

I wish I had a tablet or something. then I wouldn’t have to worry about paper and pencil led, and eraser smudges. I could just draw infinitely!

but those things ain’t cheep and I’m currently unemployed, so unless some crazy voodoo happens (Like how I managed to get a free good quality brand new Laptop) I shall remain with the ancient medium of pen and paper.

EXPLANATION: Yes, I am aware the gif is quoted incorrectly. I decided to snag it and make this post in reponse to the person who made that gif with obvious intentions of furthering a false perspective that there are no black superheroes. Also, not sorry for the length of the post. I wanted to drive home the point that there are plenty of black superheroes and villians.

On this, my 25th birthday, I think it’s time I get myself back into drawing.

I decided to focus on the writing aspect of comics, and have been completely neglecting drawing for almost a year now.

I think it’s time that I start drawing again, at least to keep me draw muscle in use so it doesn’t go all flabby.

thing is, unless I have a specific thing to draw, I just end up sitting here for hours on end staring at the blank page.

SO!
I shall use this glorious thing
It’s a random idea generator (3.0) there are 2 other versions, but I don’t know where they are…

But yeah! Starting tomorrow, I will use this to generate random ideas to draw.

Although, I should probably stock up on drawing stuff first. all my pencils are in their stubby stage of life, and with these accursed large hands of mine, pencils become rather difficult to hold when they get stubby.

Actually, better idea: I’ll get lead refills for my mechanical pencils.

… where the hell are my mechanical pencils anyway?

solar-citrus:

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

On the subject of fandom…

So, I really hate fandoms, man. I know that’s a weird thing for me to say as a comic book reader/writer, genre fan, and all around geek. But I really really hate fandoms.

Fandoms always seem to devolve into these weird obsessive cult things where anyone who speaks ill of whatever show/book/movie/video game (I’m just going to refer to all of that as “The subject” from this point.) the fandom is based around, is attacked as if they’ve walked into a gay bar holding a “God hates fags” sign.

Where head cannons are formed and treated as if they are in continuity, and anyone who dare disagree with it is shunned.
Where characters are shipped for the sake of shipping (good lord I hate shipping), and often in ways that make no sense.
"Oh my god, these two characters interacted with each other the way that humans interact with each other! SURELY THEY ARE IN LOVE!!"

Today, Whilst wandering the tags, I came across someone complaining that someone else was shipping a lesbian character with a man, and people were all up in arms over this.
Over sombody’s unofficial headcannon that holds absolutely zero weight to the subject’s continuity, because “how dare you even IMAGINE a lesbian character hooking up with a man! How fucking dare you!”
and then, the same person, in a different post, pretty much does the identical thing by shipping two hetero characters as a lesbian couple. (Looking RIGHT AT YOU, Legend of Korra fandom)
How the hell do they not see the blatant hypocracy in that?

You can try to claim it’s a matter of representation, but it really isn’t. not when it’s just someone’s irellevant headcannon.
Now, if the people in charge of the subject suddenly had this lesbian character in a romantic relationship with a dude, THEN you could have reason to get all in a twist about it, because then AND ONLY THEN, would it actually affect the cannon and be viewed as erasure.

Now we have this latest stink around Supernatural. All these people calling “Queerbating” on the show, because the writers of the show ARE LITERALLY NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THEIR HEADCANNON ABOUT TWO OF THE CHARACTERS HOOKING UP. ONE OF WHICH IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN HETERO, THE OTHER HAS NEVER SHOWN ANY ROMANTIC INTEREST IN ANYONE EVER, AND HAS BEEN QUOTED, IN THE SHOW, AS SAYING “I AM UTTERLY INDIFFERENT TO SEXUAL ORIENTATION" HE’S BASICALLY ASEXUAL, AND THE FANS ARE UP IN A TISSEY BECAUSE THEIR HEADCANON OF A STRAIGHT GUY AND AN ASEXUAL ANGEL THING IS NOT ACKNOWLEDGED BY THE WRITERS, AND SO THEY CALL QUEERBATING. (Oh, there was this one thing where he had basically become human in the future and was having orgies. with women.

This is why I don’t like fandoms. Because largely, fandoms are just stupid and extremely irrational. to me, “fandom” is what you call the group of people that take the subject in question WAY TOO SERIOUSLY. like, to an unhealthy degree.

Members of fandom act as if they’re owed something by the subject. they’re really not. you view the subject, and in turn, you are entertained. that is the extent of the contract. that’s all it owes you. entertainment. they don’t need to bend to your will, they don’t need to alter their story or their characters to suit what you want. at all. ever.

If your enjoyment of the subject has deminished because it’s not doing something you want it to do, and this is happeniing so much that it’s making you angry or disatiscfied, then maybe it’s time to stop viewing/reading it and move on with your life.
A fandom should NEVER have the power to dictate the direction the subject and charactesr are taken.

Hell, Sometimes fandom can get to the point where it literally starts to kill the subject it’s based around.
I personally stopped watching Supernatural BECAUSE of it’s largely idiot populated fandom. I’ve lost significant interest in Doctor Who BECAUSE of it’s fandom (Still watch it though)

there’s nothing wrong with being invested in the subject you like, but the level of fandom I see on tumblr and other places reaches unhealthy levels of obsession more often than not.

This is honestly one of my biggest fears when it comes to writing. What if it does find an audience. what if it does take off, and develops a creepy obsessive fandom full of entitled little shits that ship characters nonsensicaally, and expect me to change things to how they want, and claim me a bigot or an asshole for not doing so?
Or worse. An obsessive fandom that does all that AND drives away new readers.

For The Haters: Falcon Has Been Cap Before

stefanmarquelle:

Throughout the 73 year history of Cap, there has been ELEVEN othermen to carry the stars, stripes, and shield of Captain America, INCLUDING The Falcon in 1999.

The world didn’t end when that happened in 1999, and its not going to end now. So please wont you………………..image

Nobody complained when Bucky was Cap, they shouldn’t complain now.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON (2015)

Entertainment Weekly reveals official screenshots!

Links(follow me):  Avengers / Age of Ultron / Cinema / MARVEL STUDIOS / MARVEL .

Why are people bothering to complain about Thor and Captain America?

Okay, I’ll admit that Marvel deliberately used a specific wording in order to get people riled up. they said “Thor is now a woman” which implies he got zapped with the XX ray and grew boobs.

not the case. Thor became unworthy to hold Mjolnir, and someone else has taken up the hammer and taken the name Thor as a title.

As for Falcon becoming the “black Captain America” and people getting all twisted up over that?
He’s been Captain America before. this isn’t new. He took up the mantle in the 90’s for a time.
Black cap is nothing new.

Finally, to everyone complaining: Do you even read comic books?
Do you not realize that this stuff happens a lot? Characters get depowered (Deadpool and Wolverine were both depowered fairly recently). Other characters act as substitutes sometimes (Superior Spider-man can be viewed in this way).

It lasts for about a year or two, and then things revert back.
I’d be willing to bet that Real Thor will be back in time for Avengers 2.
that was my bet when it came to Superior Spider-man, and look at that! Peter came back in time for Amazing Spider-man 2!

Let Marvel have their cash grab, because none of this stuff is going to last too long. We all know it.

Although, I am unclear as to which universe the Captain America thing is happening in, because I do know that Cap just died in Ultimate universe, and, as I’m sure any reader knows, in the Ultimate universe, Dead is dead. No resurrections.

"But Green Goblin came back to—"
Never died.

"But Gwen Stacy—"
Clone

"But Peter Parker—"
Most likely a Clone, but it hasn’t been revealed yet. But come on. It’s a clone.

So yeah, if this cap thing is in Ultimate universe, then it’s definitely permanent. I can’t see Captain America giving up his mantle so soon after getting it back from Bucky (in 2011/2012 after the Fear Itself event.) But don’t expect fem Thor to be around for terribly too long
