Are there any creators out there?

Postby Cher2a on Tue Apr 24, 2007 3:49 pm

So are there any wannabe or actually published writers, pencillers, inkers, colourists or letters out there? If yes, share your experiences, advice, work, and so forth here.

Cool :) Got an online portfolio/Gallery? I'd be interested in seeing your stuff. I have no pencilling talent whatsoever - lolz. I do the writing instead :P

Nice! I like your 'random super hero'. Your costume designs are cool! Keep it up.

I've had some short stories published in the past for regional competitions, but I don't talk about them much because it was basically an "anyone can get in this book thing" (this was proven when someone wrote a story about radioactive monkeys and a talking bin and were published next to my story T_T). I do write normal, 'big' stories but I've had to neglect them since the revision started. I got bored last week and made a myspace that summed all the things up on http://www.myspace.com/amethysteyes_writing

I agree with what Cher2a said, Valkyrie boasts some awesome costume designs!

I'm currently working on a lot of cartoon series ideas. Just finished the pilot and second script to one yesterday.
One has hit big and I am waiting for the company to find two finance groups to stump up the cash. Others will follow on the back of this but even though I'm desperate to shout it from the rooftops, I can't because of copyright issues. Grrrrr!
This has been a long and very hard search and has taken me over twenty years to get to this point...Art teacher said "you'd be nothing but a two-bit artist!" Careers Officer actually laughed in my face.
For anyone desperate to break into art and writing, take a look at the following books...

The Writer's & Artists Yearbook,
The Writer's Handbook (yearly publication)
Contacts (yearly publication)(also good if you want to break into acting)

Search Amazon or visit Waterstones to get hold of them, they're about £12.00 each

And no this is not an advert, those books have helped me.
They're full of addresses of companies (tv, film, childrens media, books & agents) along with contact tips from professionals.
Warning. Yellow crayons do not taste of bananas.

Our publishers described it as "The antidote to Twilight", Which is exactly what we were aiming for xD
Kind of like Alice in Wonderland meets the Sopranos.
I've also got a personal art blog if anyone's interested: http://ohjon.tumblr.com/ I love seeing other peoples work and talking with other artists so yeah~ let me know!
