I've been thinking of selling that account laugh
Clerk's already offered me money for it, but then he realized I'd given up the mod powers cool

Good luck, man. I'll cross my fingers. When is the comic convention exactly?

Today, I think I'll go to Domburg and spend the entire day on the beach. It's going to be a very nice, sunny day so I'll pack my aerobie, some comics, suntan lotion, flex my abdominal muscles and check out good looking females cool wink cheesy.

I've been so lucky as to be able to purchase two Supreme trades, the first Swamp Thing trade, A Small Killing (all by Alan Moore) and the first Gotham Central trade, so I'll be in for some nice reading.

I'm signed up for Comic-Con on Friday-Sunday. I'll be the guy wearing the Batman shirt who barely says anything.

This will be my first trip to California so I'm nervous and excited at the same time.I'm been saving up for this trip since February hence my long absence from the boards. I've also slept longer lately (8.5-9 hours) and lost weight (from 198 pounds down to 175). This could also be a result of stress - about half of the staff at work left.Remember when I was the hopeless one looking for a job? Now I'm considered one of the veteran experts.

One guy is actually giving me money to buy him things related to The Incredible Hulk. Others are jealous that I'll be there to see Ultimate Avengers 2.

Those are great, TJ. Seriously. I wish you the best of luck, because if you get in, you're not going to forget us angry
cheesy

I agree with Clerk, though. Dinah's pretty fugly in the face.

Let us know how it goes as soon as you hear something!

yeah, i know what your saying about dinah...but, personally, i just never saw her as a conventional beauty, like supergirl and wonder woman. i like her being a bit more....not standard? i dunno....whatever, thats cool though. i have lots of problems with the art...i actually dont think they'll like it, but...im totally freaking out.

by the way, thanks for the kind words...as always, im totally up for negative criticism.

TJ:
Awesome, awesome, totally awesome. I love the dynamics of your pages - the perspectives are very cool, the lay-outs, the facial expressions, and the humourous last panel. I like it.

I agree with Clerk and Snipe's comment on Black Canary, but toally see your viewpoint. I think you can be expected to hear about this when showing your portfolio, though.

Another thing I'd like to comment on -- but I may see this wrong -- are some of the proportions. For example: page 6, when the thug is grabbing his knife. He has a hand that is just bigger than his chin. My hand goes, when as a fist, from my chin to the tip of my nose. And that's when they're on top of each other -- your picture also needs to account for depth and things that are closer need to be depicted even bigger.
Those are just details, but worthy of pointing out nonetheless, methinks. I don't see this happening somewhere else on these pages, so that's good. But on the other hand, it's inconsistent.

I love that you manage to tell the story without words. I only noticed just now - which is praise on its own - but I think it's no small feat. I love the black canaries behind Black Canary, "dirtb", the cigerette of the running thug hanging in the air, the way hair flows naturally (e.g., page 7 panel 1), the big, dorky, hunkin' heart and "End".

I hope that helped somewhat.
Also: perhaps a nice thread for coming weekend.


I saw this file when on the Newsarama boards whilst discussing a comic.
Nasty!

It compares pictures done by Liefeld and pictures done by others. The real irony of it all was that it came up in a thread where Liefeld himself accussed Keith Giffen of plagiarism. (More details in this Newsarama thread.)
