How To Build Your Own Worlds: THE GODS!
How To Build Your Own World: THE GODS.
Note: This tutorial deals with the idea of creating fictional faiths and deities in fictional worlds. I'll use concepts and aspects from existing religions at times as reference points and for certain basic examples, but many broad generalizations will be made (translation: if you don't want to get an "F" on a term paper don't use this as a source). It's not meant to be a detailed lesson in or discussion about theology; in fact I won't even give specific advice here since artists and writers should develop their own concepts and subcreations. If you want to create a world, an alternative universe or whatever using an existing faith then you should learn as much about it as possible from reliable sources. A completely fictional faith can stand on its own merits, but one based on an existing religion, pantheon, or such- even if it's something fictional such as what H.P. Lovecraft created- should be dealt with by an artist knowledgeable about it sinc

How To Make Your Own Comic: Beginner's Tips.
So You Want To Make Your Own Comic.
You've seen them all of your life: comics.
Printed, Online, Graphic Novels, Domestic, Foreign...
Today's comic artist has the means to display a comic in ways we never had back in 1986! If you have access, just access, to a scanner, a computer, and the Internet, YOU too can publish a comic where millions can see it!
Even publishing a comic in printed form is so much easier and so much less expensive than in my younger years during the Reagan Era, when without considerable money doing so with a quality color comic was all but impossible, it was just too expensive for a typical artist alone.
So- you want to do it- but you aren't sure how to go about making a comic. You have the idea, you may know what kind of comic you want to create, what?
That's where this handy-dandy tip guide can help, and it'll cost you nothing! And if not 100% satisfied, you'll get a full refund, less shipping and handling! :)
First, you must decide just what it i

To Everyone:

If I seem slow to react to things like points, watches, llamas, and other nice things, please bear with me: things here are now even worse than they were in 2013 when I was gone for 1 1/2 years, including two serious medical issues. This has made it very difficult to get more art done (I am not the one with the medical problems but two around me have them), and has greatly reduced what I can do on the Internet. It took quite a bit just to draw Coradasi 2. Right now the coin is flipping in the air.

So to you all: thank you for these things, and if that Perspective Tutorial has helped I'd love to see your art; could you send a link? To those on my watch list, I'm still checking out your sites too- just not as often, because I'm not around as much.

Best to you all, and good luck.

Might have to wait a bit for TEA, I've got some otehr projects that now take center attention but I think they will pay off. TEA will come someday though! I refuse to let it die!
