This week is the first Vanessa Fly Trap Comic I did, “Get Out There”. I made it with the intent of establishing the relationship between Vanessa and her brother Victor. Victor doesn’t like particularly like other people and certainly doesn’t go out of his way to accommodate them or go out to meet them. He would much rather spend his time at home reading books, browsing the web, or working on an invention. His sister is basically the polar opposite and is constantly trying to get him outside and bring him along when she goes to see her friends. This comic plays with that particular dynamic show how each sibling tries to work with the other, Enjoy!
Hello there fellow readers! Some of you might know I’ve been working on writing and drawing my children’s book but what if I told you that I actually drew a few comic pages revolving around the main characters. This week I will be showing 1 per day with a brief look into what I was thinking at the time. If those get a lot of comments, likes or support, I might start drawing more comics with more characters from this project.
So with further ado, the cover page of the comic I made all the way back in 2012, unedited with the old logo.
Well, everyone (that even reads this blog) it’s time for a change. And by change I mean improvement, and by that I mean… ahem. Anyways, I’m a setting up a new weekly section called JDT: Cartoon Enthusiast.
Basically here is where I will do one of two things. Some weeks I will post my feelings about an cartoon on any media that I know of, similar to a critique I will recommend certain things about something or say what me and other fans of a particular series says needs improvement. The other thing is post fan art of the cartoons I can draw because hey, it’s fun for me.
And I’d be happy if those reading this, (I know you’re out there) would leave a comment related to said post. I don’t care if you’re just glancing, hate every that comes out of my keyboard, or just using my blog for your PowerPoint project about crazy bloggers on the internet. Just know if you want to add to the conversation, say I’m a lying idiot or report the desperate measures bloggers take to get hits due to blah, the comments section is write there for you. Okay that what I wanted to say!
Also I’ll be posting updates to my web comic(s) too. That’s all folks!
As a novice comic writer, I’m aware of the many extraordinary abilities known as superpowers. Known thanks to mainstream comic companies like DC or Marvel, many powers can be named by even those who never even read an issue. We have the basics of “Super” Strength/Speed, just enhancements of what we could but at a super level. Then we had we creative powers like flying, control over elements, and even ridiculous one-shot powers from the worlds of video games and movies. But when you’re making up characters(like me), whether they’re heroes , villains, or civilians you want to know what kinds of abilities are out there so you can know how to be more creative.
Then I found the superpower wiki
If you want to make a superpower story and want to learn the applications of a power, or even find out what powers a character you know has so you can tell it to your friends then this will definitely help. While it’s true some of the newer, or obscure pages may require work, the main pages are constantly looked at and linked to others. I’st definitely a handy resource for my work and glad to have signed up to be a recent contributor.
