Help! / Re: Advice on getting rid of old 2000AD comics
« on: 08 March, 2019, 11:51:09 am »
Tricky thing to unload eh?

I'm thinking of stopping my sub and getting rid of my "modern" collection of 2000AD and Megazine ( both unbroken 20 year runs).

Not quite figured out the best way to do it yet either......

Sure you'll have some tough moments. The feeding in the middle of the night is not as bad as some make out. You get used to it and generally it doesn't last long. Toilet training was our biggest challenge. Took 3 months and nearly every night there was an episode but again you kind of get used to it.

Ha ha, both of my children were 7 before they slept through their first night.....and they overlapped. So, 10 years without an unbroken night! And sleep deprivation is TORTURE!


Being a parent pretty much is my reason for being so I certainly wouldn't change it. I'd do it again 😊

Thanks Sinx, glad you like it.
Sadly no, it didn't get posted prior to the comp ending. I would recommend that you check out the Facebook group for the competition as i think about 80 unseen entries got posted there all in one go after the winner was announced. Some really top notch work in there.
I'm guessing a lot of them will go unseen.

My thoughts are, surely professionals such as Evan can submit for this kind of work directly? Maybe I'm being naive.

I thought the competition was for amateur hopefuls not professional artists. Wouldn't this just be a professionals submission process then?

I was confused after the first competition closed, I'm more confused now, but I feel that on the evidence of the first two competitions that maybe the competition isn't for amateurs like myself, so I'll leave it to others going forward.

My Rogue entry for the latest competition. Cheers.

Congratulations to Evan, it's an absolutely fantastic picture and deserved the win.

Okay, regarding the competition......I am really confused by its purpose and imagine that I'm probably not the only one.

Would this be Evan Shipard, acclaimed long time professional movie concept artist for such films as Mad Max Fury Road and Alien Covenant?

Guess I had taken the competition as sort of an aspirational endeavour for amateurs to try and get published, but it does seem that your casual amateur entry might be fairly pointless when stacked up against industry veterans?

I think if you are taking entries from those in games development, films etc, it is such an overlap that it seems a little churlish to not let other artists who have done professional comic art in the past but maybe aren't currently working in the field have a go as well.

Anyway, not a complaint or a moan, just an observation and perhaps a request for some clarity as to who this is actually pitched at (assuming it's anyone who hasn't specifically worked as a comic artist?).

Machine Law is just stunning. Pages 3 & 4 are nearly up there with America for me. Script and art just completely at one. Those two pages alone are unreal and then there's the rest of the episode! Bombshells is right. Imagine this was 20 parts long. We can dream. Worth the price of me sub to get to read this on a Saturday when it hits the mat.

Alas, the price of my sub didn't make it hit the mat on Saturday.

It's a great pic!

I just started using Clip Studio after years of working in Photoshop. Slightly frustrating at first trying to find equivalents to all of my trusty photoshop tools, but I'm really enjoying it now.

The brush tools, the blending and the layers management are a huge step forward over the version of photoshop that I had been using.

I didnt feel any of that pain while playing Odyssey, easily one of my favourite gaming experiences of the last 20 years. I'm gutted that after about 150 hours I've finally run out of things to do. I'm no mourning it's end.

There's a real Bill Sienkiewicz vibe to that Venus picture.....really nice.

If we are talking most influential I would say it's a close call between Mick McMahon and Carlos Ezquerra. They pretty much did all there is to do with Dredd's appearance. Carlos concept, evolved by Mick a lot. Wouldn't say the Dredd uniform or character design has evolved since the 80's. McMahon is the king of drawing mega city and the lawmaster for me too.

Joking aside, their Dredd figure and the black version of that bike immediately sold out and subsequently more than doubled in price. Certainly a market for the movie versions at 1/6 scale. Shame Hot Toys hasn't produced one, or at the very least Sideshow under their "cult classics" line.
