Sword Art Online: Another Odyssey Ch.1
This has to have been the worst day of my life! First, I get roundhouse kicked by a short woman due fact I could not speak fluid Japanese, and said something that apparently is rude. Second, I'm most likely going to flunk my classes. Why? Cause I simple cannot take them. Third, I'm stuck in this God forsaken Virtual World! Welcome to Sword Art Online my ass! I mean how are we going to clear 100 floors and stay alive!? Finally to top it off, my student visa expires in a year!
These were the thoughts that screamed in my head after awaking from the nightmare of hearing that red hooded freak yesterday. I awake here laying in a virtual bed, in a virtual Inn, in a virtual town, in a virtual world known as Aincrad. It all felt like a dream, yet as my mind shifted into reality and I see that stupid digital clock on the upper right hand side, I knew this wasn't the case. This was real deal. I'm stuck here unless the game cleared or I just die. I never really wanted this to happen to me. All I w

Getting Back Into Creating Comics - Script Writing
Scott King's Tips
Lately I've been studying tutorials and tips via Making Comics Podcast, and it's really cool how people are kind to donate their time and effort to teach others how to do certain things the right way. Well it's not necessarily 'a MUST DO' thing in making comics, it is certainly a guideline and it's up to you to use your creativity and smarts to make it a technique that works to your advantage.
Recently I've been trying to improve on my understanding of story structure/script and dialogue writing. I used Peter David's amazing 'Writing For Comics' book (which has been mentioned on my previous blog update - see image below on how the book looks like if you plan to get it, try to get me off to a good start. However I needed more content to reaffirm some theories and techniques so I stumbled upon a guy named Scott King (creator of <b>

Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking Flight

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
by techgnotic
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
