A guide to common terms used in describing tiaras
This one’s very relevant to my interests.

And, please reblog this post for a chance to win all three sets for free. Winners will be announced Friday, September 5th.
Yes please !
Many of these rates (before taxes, might I add) haven’t changed in 20 years. $100-$250 in 1994 aint the same as in 2014. This is why Comic Book Conventions for many comic illustrators, in many cases, are the lifeblood of their comic making (commissions, direct fan interaction books sales).

Proposed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Daredevil crossover art by Kevin Eastman circa 1985.
Man, I would’ve loved this crossover.
From the owner:
"Kevin Eastman drew this Marvel tryout piece for a TMNT-Daredevil cross-over in 1985, just months after publishing TMNT #1 and as Marvel’s Daredevil enjoyed peak popularity under Frank Miller. This huge DPS (18" x 24" on Craftint paper) features TMNT’s leader Leonardo and Daredevil in tandem— a pairing of fearless heroes with similar if not linked origins. Among the largest and most detailed TMNT drawings, Eastman went all out to impress Marvel with incredible character details and depth/shading techniques. I love the striking composition and how both characters appear to jump right off the page!
As you may know, Eastman and Laird conceived TMNT as a direct parody to Marvel’s Daredevil…the traffic accident and truck carrying radioactive waste causing the turtles mutation was an allusion to Daredevil’s origin, if not the very same event. ‘Splinter’ is a parody of Daredevil’s master, ‘Stick.’ The Foot clan of ninjas is a parody of ‘The Hand,’ blind man and blindfolds, Hell’s Kitchen heroes, etc.
Unfortunately, Marvel declined (perhaps a regret given TMNT’s global popularity). I hope Marvel and Nickelodeon may one day reconsider and make this compelling crossover happen.”
As long as Michael Bay keeps his paws off it, I’d love to see this!
WOW YOU GUYS So many people expressed interest in doing a daily draw group thing, made me totally excited, and when I get excited I blow things way out of proportion and therefore I have designed a new one hahahaha.
So the way this works is, each day will have 2 opposing prompts. You can choose the one that is harder for a challenge, or the one that is easier if you don’t have a lot of time or it’s an off day. I fully expect to be doing like half easy. Also this is 20 days because 20 days is as far into the future as I can think without having an anxiety attack also April will happen.
Here are the prompts!
Portrait / Action Pose
Interior / Exterior
Black&White / Color
Machinery / Nature
Saturated Palette / Muted Palette
70 / 30 Rule (Explained at about 5:35- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oO2J2ponho)
Suit / Dress
Full Page / Vignette
Gruesome / Saccharine
Industrial / Pastoral
Little Kid / Old Person
Open Space / Enclosed Space
Love / Hate
Pretty / Ugly
Pattern / Random
Form / Function
Modern / Vintage
Cluttered / Clean
Monstrous / Cute
Badass / Innocent
Odds and Ends:
- About once a week I’ll cross off the ones that we’ve done and reblog.
- Feel free to jump in AT ANY TIME!
- Tag your sketches “Easy and Hard Challenge,” so we all know where to look!!!
- NEVER FEEL BAD about skipping a day! Just jump on the next one you can fit in. You can catch up if you want, but momentum is more important, that’s why it’s going to be so great to do this in a group.
OKAY WE START TOMORROW WITH PORTRAIT OR ACTION POSE!
This one looks like a lot of fun too
Phew! Here it is folks, cobbled together from two weeks worth of free time. I don’t really know what to say, so I’ll just hope it’s as fun to read and look thru as it was to make.

Maaan, this feels so ancient now. It’s been having an activity surge lately, and I wanted to throw out another huge thank you to everyone that’s helped me spread it around. 18k… you folks are really wonderful.
This is an awesome concept.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don’t - I have a lot to learn), I’m not sure I could communicate them effectively. I’ve gathered some thoughts and ideas here, though, in case they’re helpful.
This is a master post if I’ve ever seen one…
