Just like the table scene, the dance scene can be an invaluable story telling tool: a way to showcase where your characters stand without having to force them to speak about it or have someone else infodump about it.

This stance can be on the characters that dance (i.e ...

It’s the Mileage

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 3, 2018



A discussion at twitter (you should be there! If you haven’t looked for @Drunkduck you should, add DD and you’ll be added back!) brought to my attention a very subtle but very aesthetically and narratively pleasing element that, when we take the time as artists to factor it ...

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Jan. 19, 2018




For this week I decided to take a break from the usual topic of comic promotion and, instead, talk about something more personal. Every now and then I get asked how I got into webcomics and, as an inevitable follow up, where should they start. If you’ll indulge me ...

Cheating

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 2, 2017

Cheat, cheat, no reason to play fair…(the Clash)

Drawing Attention #5

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Aug. 25, 2017

Drawing Attention #4

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Aug. 18, 2017



This time out I wanted to talk about superhero comics again and turn the spotlight onto the one that was responsible for me discovering Drunkduck in the first place…Dasien.
