  1. Phoenix Comics and Doodles

    Does that mean that the Adventures of the Beer Wolf, in the search for the lost Beer planet should continue? I'll check back next week to find out if you all/anybody would like it to be a thing again.

    Hello to anyone and everyone, besides myself are there any other authors left on here?
  5. How do I human

    I am not sure what you are going for here, a cartoon look? an anime look or semi real or what? I am not trying to offend, but how can i help?
  6. How do I human

    It is not that bad, i have seen worse. Now draw her out 4 or 5 more times and each time take a little more time to work on each element. I don't have the files right handy but there are a lot of help videos on utube. Or you can PM me and i will see if i can give you some general pointers. I would start by thinking about the shape of the human skull, then study eyes for a bit, Hint...they should both be the same size and the distance between them is the same as the size of the eye.
  7. Add a line?

    He set his radio on the table and turned up the volume.

    Long time since the last entry... maybe i will get a chance this coming weekend. We need MORE comics!
  12. Creating a ballanced character

    I would like to add a careful word about character flaws. Yes they can go way too far, but then a perfect character can be very boring. Some flaws in a main character hero or heroin can, if not exagerated way too far, make a character interesting. The ruff old tracker who will stop what he is doing to go out of his way to help. Then in chapter 4 you discover it is because he lost his whole family to ...whatever... but it made him the way he is. Maybe he needs to be that way for the story to flow or be interesting. Yes the chosen one is way over used, i would love to read a book about what happens when the chosen one dies in the first chapter, but, then what would the story be if the main character was not the chosen one... What if Harry Potter was not the chosen one?
  13. Phoenix Comics and Doodles

    Did you know that there is a backstory to the Mammalians? Their former emperress, at the ripe old age of 5 had accidentally outlawed males on her home world. She had said that they were icky and grose and ordered that they all be thrown off the world. Then when she reached the at of 15 she discovered what they were for while visiting one of the outer planets and ending up sending her entire space force to go and find, "young-handsome males". She had also given orders that these males must be...uh... tested, to make sure that they would be able to fullfill the Mammalian needs.

  22. I'm halfway to death.

    sorry a bit late here, but congrats on starting to almost be an adult now. Why i remember back when i turned 50 and how young i felt, then i turned 55 and that wasn't so bad... and this coming january i will turn older a lot older and that won't be bad at all. I won't even mind when i hit 60 in the near future....
  23. It all depends of what you are trying to do. For example anime has one set of cannons, comic/cartoon/super hero stuff has another and traditional or realism has another. There are so many different styles. I would suggest that you go search the internet and find one you like, then practice-practice-practice.

    I agree, lets keep it as clean as possible...
