Cosmic Comix Classics Collection

The first comics my brother and I drew when we were kids. Some of them are are surprisingly satirical, and others are just plain immature and childish. Enjoy.

My cousin came over for thanksgiving. She's like 11 or 12 and she created this beauty on my computer when I wasn't looking.

Woke up in a not so great mood this morning... but nothing will cheer me up quite like reading some Die, Immortal-chan! I think I could have made the neck more feminine but I wanted to experiment a little with my own take on the style.

You can read Die, Immortal-chan! and other comics by pongldr here:

I didn't really want to take it any farther than this. It's not great looking, but Unit 01 is a very complex figure to draw. I'm happy with what I learned

This was an interesting step. I was messing around in paint.net. The layers are the same image, but the top layer has about 50% opacity, and the bottom layer has a low contrast, but high brightness. Both images were ink sketch, then auto level, then pencil sketch

Learning more in paint.net/experimenting, trying to improve my skills in general. I traced a general outline from google images and then sketched out the shapes of Unit 01 with pencil. Then went over it in pen.
Added a color palette at the top, started making the left figure pink. However I decided to try something a little different this time, so I left his poncho the way it is for reference, but added some symbols on it. Removed foreground. I made it white this time so that I could insert a separate texture I made
You already know the next step: using easy to see colors, outline the things you want to keep in the picture. There was an added challenge this time because I had to extend the area of the phot. All the yellow lines over the white background are for mountains I'm going to have to make myself.
It's that time of year again! Time for what? Time to make another dope af comic cover! Now you may be thinking "But Ian, time is a construct of man, therefore it would suggest that it is only time to make another dope af comic cover because you declared to be so!" while that may be true, it doesn't change the fact that this comic cover is going to be af- and yours will be too if you follow these simple instructions.

This time our starting picture comes from my buddy Taylor while he was on a trip to South America. (used without permission because it's better to ask forgiveness anyway, right?). Originally I actually planned to copy the cover of Disney's animated film "Home on the Range," but fortune smiled upon me with some better inspiration. I especially liked this photo because it clearly demonstrates foreground, mid ground, and Background.

I tried watching Mulholland drive last night. I fell asleep and when I woke up some dude was pouring pink goop into a lady's suitcase

@artofjoe: but Nintendo absolutely shaped my childhood, and I'll never forget that.

@artofjoe: basically on two fronts. The first front being their abandonment of their original fanbase in casual gaming. That kind of happened with wii games that were catered to a wider audience that were frankly really poorly made and had little replay value (if any play value) ie wii sports, wii resort, Mario and sonic at the Olympic games. There's nothing wrong with those games being produced, it's just that Nintendo started putting all their effort into widening that audience. This might be a little hard to grasp just because you didn't grow up with the gamecube at the same age as I did, but every gamecube game I ever bought was very high quality, fun to play, and very unique in style with few exceptions. When I think of the greatest games for gamecube the list trails on and on in my mind. If you were to ask me the best games for the wii, I can think of like three and the list ends abruptly. Also as you mentioned, they keep trying to be really innovative with their systems, which is great, but then they never do anything with it. Like the Wii U. Imagine a pacific rim game where two pilots are piloting a giant robot. One players controls are being fed through the tv and the others through the controller. That is the power of the wii U. There could have been so many unique and innovative games, but there were none. And now they are leaving it behind. The second front has to do with the Nintendo competitive scene, namely super smash brothers (I compete in super smash brothers tournaments). But I won't get into that side of it.

@Ian Evans: Interesting, how so? (I agree somewhat and I'm a little mad about how they are abandoning the Wii U so soon when it still has so much potential...)

@artofjoe: I will always be Nintendo at heart, but I don't agree with the direction they've been heading lately.

@TheJGamer: I would have actually drawn you except the deadline was pretty steep and I did this at midnight. I did it all in paint and google images.
