"Some days, Some nights
Some live, Some die
in the way of the Samurai
Some fight, Some bleed
Sun up to Sun down
The Sons of a battle cry"
I haven't drawn anything (like literally haven't touched a pencil) in a month--and my last new upload was probably even longer than that @_@
Sorry for the neglect, everyone... As a peace-offering, here's Mugen, Fuu, Jin & Momo of Samurai Champloo--the classic Shinichiro Watanabe anime series, and one of my favorite shows of all time. I can't even count how many times I've rewatched the thing.
In the background are the Japanese words (Kanji, I think it's called?) of the title of the show, and cleverly inserted in the corners and empty spaces are each of the characters names. I went and did a bunch of ink splatters cause the theme of the show is kind of Urban/Graffiti, so I figured "the messier the better."
. . . This isn't too bad for a warm up.
For more (quicker) updates, catch me on:
BrokenHas the world finally beaten us?ferdicamacho
I never wanted to be one of the normal people
I never thought I'd let myself be corrupted
But now look at me - I don't even feel I have the right to fight it anymore
It's all gone and done for
When all is said there'll be nothing left of who we were, will there?
I fear we'll give up believing we could be more than this
More than working bees part of a beehive
Just minlessly going about money-making routines
More than sorry asses moping about a great love lost because of normal people's mistakes
More than regretfull souls keeping our dreams and hopes in a drawer
Has the world finally beaten us?
I don't want to believe it.
I don't want us to become strangers
Painfully exchanging business related words
I need to see you and see that there is still some warmth left, some life and hunger for a great future still present inside us
As I lay here heartbroken, hardened, numb and vulnerable all at once
I want to find the friend I have in you
Someday maybe we'll f

Fully charged...Working as a freelancer, one of the hardest things to do is work out how much to charge for your time and effort. You can try to ask other people what they charge but people can be a little cagey about stating their rates to a potential competitor. Not only because that person might then undercut them, but also because you don't want to be seen as working for what might be chump change.SeanE
Heres a link to a website that asks 5 basic questions that all freelancers should ask of a project, and then adds up and gives you an estimate of how much you should charge to make a decent profit. It's only a guide but it can at least give you a ball park figure on what to start on, and then it's up to you to negotiate from there. The website is made by the same people who made the Vimeo "F*ck you, Pay me..."
ROB LIEFELD WROTE A MOVIE! About......HIMSELF! Of course.Rob-Liefeld
Is there a better, more extreme, subject to write about? I can't think of one. And I really tried... Like hours of deep thought. Meditation levels of deep thought.
READ HERE: ICONS MOVIE!
Please someone tell me this is real. I grew up on Rob Liefeld comics, so obviously I never learned to read. Wordless 3 panel pages ruined my attention span too. Memes are about all the text I can take at one time. But I'm sure one of you Robmaniacs slipped through the cracks and learned to read and can break it down for me.
For reals, I was looking though the script and he met Easy E! And, according to Rob, EASY-E wanted to work with him. NWAxEXTREME. I'm sure it never happened because NWA was intimidated by Rob. It happens to the best of us. Has a
ComicsWhat do you look for in a comic? What reason(s) make you pick up/buy a comic book? For those of you that enjoy comics and comic cons but don't actually buy comics on a "regular" basis why not? I'm curious about others thought processes and I'm hoping you all will chime in and tell me what you think.Wesflo
5 Career Killers“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?seangordonmurphy
Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.
1. SOCIAL MEDIA TAKE-DOWN
The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.
I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much a
