grimphantom asked: "lol sorry if i'm asking another question. In the episode "Like Father, Like Daughter" Did that episode meant of having Julie as the main antagonist if you guys made a 2nd season? The ending was a bit unexpected where Julie agreed on taking care of the family business and her expression didn't seem to look like she was having 2nd thoughts."

chrisprynoski:

She was having 2nd thoughts. But she would not have become the antagonist. The idea was that she would become conflicted - if she followed the path to power, she could make some real, meaningful changes - but it was that power that corrupted her father. We wanted to set up a slow, multi-season arc that would have Julie wrestling with her idealism vs. the reality of what power and responsibility mean.

I know I did a comic about Julie’s inner conflict, I’ll revisit this idea in the near future.

I reblogged a post about “Solar Punk” concept. I really liked the idea and came up with some fashion concepts for later. I’ll make one for the mens later on.

Let’s make this Solar Punk a really big deal. 
I’m literally taking a class on this this year btw. Hit me up if you have any questions on the fine art aspects of comic…

Cool! I’d really like that. 

i-rant-for-pleasure asked: "Hey probably an odd question but have you noticed the growing style shift between popular and cancelled cartoons these days? I mean from the shows like Motorcity, Green Lantern and Young Justice where the animation is stylised but still human resembling get cancelled but the toons still on TV now like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Regular Show and Gravity Falls have highly cutesy/cartoony looks to them and get accolades. Is appears as though real looking western toons are a dying breed :("

I don’t think that’s the /real/ reason for the shift, I think it’s more about the genre and themes than the “style.” (I’m sorry, I’m gonna write you an essay.)

The similarities between Motorcity, Green Lantern, and Young Justice is that they had a more mature undertones in their storytelling. All these shows do have light, humorous sides to them but that’s just “very light coating on the cake.”

Motorcity has complex themes about Loyalty, Freedom, Revenge, and Betrayal. Green Lantern has themes about Duty, Virtue, Redemption, and Loss (from the episodes I’ve seen) And Young Justice touch on similar themes as well, in addition to Puberty, Sacrifice, and Survival.

While Adventure Time, Regular Show, Steven Universe, and Gravity Falls have sillier and lighter approach to addressing themes.

When Rebecca Sugar was on Adventure time, she has a unique storytelling that applies heavy coating of silliness over a deeper issue. Marceline’s story arch with her Demon Father and Ice King is addressing about Father Figures. In Steven Universe, we see a similar yet broader theme with Mother Figures. Rose was pretty much the motherly figure that the Gems looked up to but when they lost Rose, the Gems were “forced” to grow up and raise Steven. 

I think Gravity Falls is a borderline show. It has mature themes that is coated with nice layer of silly, so it won’t be taken /too/ seriously. I’m glad that the show survived the chopping block and got a second season. 

As For Adventure Time, Regular Show, and similar shows like them, they thrive on silly and that’s incredibly appealing to their demographic. Look at Uncle Grandpa and Teen Titans Go! They are nothing but silly. 

I have noticed that the mature shows are mostly on the Toonami Block and Adults Swim. What I do hope for is that Toonami would pick up Motorcity for their weekend lineup. I think the show would get a better audience if it were to air there.

There are just a couple problems I have with this (not that I am the all powerful authority on comics or anything, but) A) panel layouts DO have rules! AND IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT TO KNOW THEM. Much like perspective or anatomy, or any other fundamental, once you really understand them, you can start to bend/break them, and get all kinds of experimental (again, I am by no means against untraditional paneling)- but you have to understand the basics first to guide and not confuse your reader. I promise I speak from lesson-learned-the-hard-way personal experience on that one. B) you can definitely hand-letter your comics, they don’t have to be just typed. In fact, if you can get good at hand lettering, a lot of times the end result is even better. Now it’s not just like your normal, everyday note taking writing- get a lettering guide, and practice! Consistency is important. But it’s a beautiful thing that a lot of creators do.
Other than that the rest of these tips seem pretty solid. The one about checking out film stills is especially good.

This is very good input.. I’m reblogging for this additional info about Panels and Lettering.
When I finally got around to learning about making actual comics. It’s from a manga perspective, which means everything in Japanese and my Japanese wasn’t all that strong when I learned all this..
So everything I know up to this point, is all from what my teachers have taught me from their experiences. I encourage others to share their two cents to make this a stronger guide. Not only it helps me, but others as well.redreblogging:
