A few weeks ago, one of my friends sent me a message asking if I’d be interested in helping a friend of his, who was trying to find an artist to draw her nude. This was the first request for a nude portrait I’d ever gotten, and although it’d been a while since I’d drawn from life, I was excited to give […]

During my early days of life drawing, one of the questions I asked myself was the value of a model. I pondered it because in drawing sessions, it wasn’t like we had enough time to capture all the detail a model could give over a picture. Examples are the ones shown in this post that […]
Greetings to all, I’ve been very busy and haven’t had the time to post in a while, but now I’m currently working on inking my drawings and coloring them using Adobe Photoshop CS6. I ink my drawings using ink pens and I add additional lines to add more detail to the art. Below you’ll see the progress of what I’ve been working on using Adobe Photoshop CS6 and how good your drawing’s can be when you have these good tools. Take note to even if you have Photoshop Elements 9 you can still get some of the same results because they have some of the same tools as CS6 just not all of them. The benefit of coloring you artwork in Photoshop is that you have room for error. You can always go back and fix a mistake that you made and also most Comic book company’s Marvel, DC Comics, Image, Top Cow, etc. all use Photoshop to add words and to add coloring to the comic. I will be having a tutorial using imaging with Photoshop on how to use Photoshop to color you artwork. Stay tuned!
Hey Everyone in this post I will telling you how to write your own comic strip and how it is usually organized. When it comes to scripts even when your talking about in movies, plays, dramas, TV shows, etc. you need too always start with your ideas and generate a plot. To be very honest just about all scripts are very similar just that the formats change a bit when dealing with Comics. Like with Comics your dealing with panels so you have to write what is happening , what’s being said, how the background/artwork will be, camera angle, and how big the panel will be. When I say Panel I’m talking about how big the box comic where you draw you scene in will be. Below is an example of a comic strip I made by using the comic script outline. You may use this as a reference and is copyright by brownscomicart.com. I will have an Artist too page about comic scripts coming soon.
Hey folks, as we advance with technology coding is growing and is the way we operate when it comes to computers. Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, etc. they’re all made with coding. Coding is also used in a lot of video games that we play on xboxOne, Playstation 4, App Store games, and PC gaming. There are game engines that use coding to create their video games Unity is one that uses coding for most of the programming. Unreal Engine 4 using coding in a way but most theirs is broken down into blueprints which we will talk about in a later post. Coding is also used to create Game Engines like Unity and Unreal Engine. Coding is something that takes some time to learn but their have a lot of free courses available out there to teach you how to code, with some even offering you a certificate in coding. Now here is the thing having a certificate in coding isn’t going to help you get a job unless you fully understand how to code and have to have projects like websites, games, apps, etc. showing proof you know how to code and that you got the certificate with your knowledge of understanding it. I will be creating a page in the artist tips page soon to talk more about coding and show you some of the projects I’m working with right now in coding. I will also be posting on twitter websites you can go to take free courses for coding.
Below is a picture from google showing you Unity 3D and as you can see its free software too you. Go check it out at madewith.unity.com

iClone some of you all may be familiar with it and if you that’s good but for those that don’t know iClone is a program that allows you to create a character that with the right upgrade you can import your character to the unity or unreal game engine. It is a long process and is difficult and I’m still experimenting with iClone Character creator and iClone 6 Pro. Their is a difference between the iClone Character creator and iClone 6 Pro. Character creator is where you actually create the character and add features too them like tattoos, clothes, make them muscular, male or female, etc. So below you can see some work in progress I’m watching and writing down a lot of tutorials to help me out with this project. Current status below….#workinprogress

Michael Layne Turner was an American comic book artist known for his work on Witchblade, Fathom, Superman/Batman, Soulfire, and various covers for DC Comics and Marvel Comics. He was also the president of the entertainment company Aspen MLT. Wikipedia.
Sadly on June 27, 2008 at the age of 37 from bone cancer. He was well known for for his Artwork in the DC Comics Superman/Batman which is one of my favorite DC Comics novels and was a top seller too. As seen below his art was fantastic in this book and the colorist was good too, just look below at the inside cover.
I can’t get over how he draws out the background in the city. He has done some work for work for Marvel and was hired by Marc Silvestri (Top Cow Productions) to do work for them too) in the comics Witchblade. Every piece of art was just brilliant too he made sure too include every detail into each of his drawings. Below is his Witchblade comics from Top Cow Productions and a photo of Michael Turner himself. I’ll will make post and will create a special page of famous comic book artist and their stories.
