Nickelodeon Yanks Legend Of Korra Off TV, Shoves It Online
Y'know just today my whole family sat back to enjoy the last few episodes of Legend of Korra on our Tivo and EVERY time commercials showed up I repeated out-loud 'thank god my kids don't watch the other Nickelodeon shows' because everything looked like such ridiculous devoid-of-quality crap. Hearing Disney Channel blaring on the tvs in my house bugs me a lot, but compared to most Nickelodeon shows, they are AMC (wait, does Disney own AMC yet? I need to do some Walking Dead pin swapping!). I digress.

Legend of Korra, Nickelodeon was beneath you anyway.

We STILL seem to have a RANDOM ARCHIVE GLITCH where clicking on the next comic will take you to the next comic page, but oddly display a comic from a totally different date. Hitting Refresh sometimes helps. We're working on it!

HEAD'S UP: I'm looking forward to Contra-26 in Kansas City this November! Hope to see you there!

INTERVENTION5 AUGUST 22-24 ROCKVILLE!

Welcome to “Portraits Week”! I’ve been playing around with Photoshop painting over the last few weeks and have decided to run some of my projects this week while I gear up to work on the next Sluggy Freelance book. This Sasha portrait is my second attempt. You’ll see my first attempt on Friday. I 'painted' on top of a pencil sketch that I ran on the site but I don’t have the link to that sketch handy. I hope someone will put the link in the  reactions forums.

This is my third attempt at Photoshop painting. I think this came out better than the Sasha portrait, but something about the squareness of the head makes Aylee less feminine than I had wanted. I also think the glowing eyes could have been handled in a more sophisticated way. Still, every time I do one of these, I'm learning more about the painting process. And that's worth the journey no matter the results. Again, this was from a pencil sketch  somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.

My fourth attempt is Izzy. My painting play started before introducing her character, so when I was designing her I decided to sketch her and then paint her. this is my second favorite painting of the week, and I think I learned the most from it.

My fifth attempt is Gwynn. In this case I painted over most of the pencil lines, but I'm much more deft with a pencil than I am with a mouse or wacom pen. That made the linework on this one much more blunt and blurred. But I'm happy with the way I was able to bring a variety of colors into it instead of just logical skin-tone choices and still have it read, even if I didn't do Gwynn's beauty justice. Again, this was from a pencil sketch  somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.

Comic for 04/30/10

Happy Friday! Here was my first attempt that fueled me doing this series of paintings. It was a quick goof-around with my old and dusty wacom tablet, but there's something about it I absolutely love. And even though I learned much from the other four 'paintings', this one is still my favorite of the week. Of course there are two more pieces of art for this Sluggy week! And Monday brings 4U City Blue!

Comic for 05/01/10

You didn't think I'd leave the guys out did you? Pardon me while I get artsy and do a portrait of the original stick-figure sidekick, Shirt Guy Tom, with "Stick in Repose"! I will never be able to draw stick figures as bad as Tom but I shall never stop trying!

BOO! Sorry, Book 10 work has put me in a ghostly place! I just finished this one ten minutes before update, a portrait of Beth (the sobbing woman) from Kesandru House! I'll probably drop this into Book 10 if I need to fill an extra page as I'm not sure how long the bonus story will be (IF there is one, but my guess is there will)!
