  • Question: What does it take to be a comic book artist? - sirjoey-23
  • Answer:

    ryanottley:

    First it takes someone who not only can draw but who wants to get better so badly that they will obsess about it everyday in their sketchbook and feel the frustration that comes with learning and growing and they will also rise above the inadequate feelings and low confidence and believe in themselves to a point where they are ok with making mistakes and growing from them, they are ok with busting out pages as fast as they can and as best as they can for a deadline. And they are ok with being broke for a while. Being an artist ain’t no joke, you’ll go through a time of being dirt poor. And if you are good/creative enough, and fast enough, and easy to work with enough, then you’ll Probably land a sweet gig. So basically it takes talent plus persistence plus luck. Enjoy.

  • Question: Dear Ryan, what are (in your opinion) the top 5 mistakes to avoid, when creating comics? Thank you very much in advance. - empaya-comics
  • Answer:

    ryanottley:

    1. Don’t drink and draw on the same table. Wet drawings suck.
    2. Don’t draw at home with kids in the house! They will ruin your drawings trying to be like you.
    3. Don’t change the script too much, writers don’t like that.
    4. Don’t play damn video games on weekdays and during deadline crunches. Just don’t.
    5. Don’t draw slow. Draw fast. Don’t draw poorly. Draw greatly!

    And those are the 5 most common things to avoid. Don’t do those.

Batgirl #35 - Babs’ OOTD No. 1 and OOTD No. 2
Here are some fashion illustrations inspired by what Babs was rocking in our first issue of Batgirl! <3  I cant name where these IRL items are specifically (legal stuff!) BUT you can at least check out how her fashions translate from the comic page to IRL and try to track it down yourself! :)  

Babs’ Street Style : Tomboy! 
Lots of people asked about what our approach for Babs’ street style is for this book. For right now, its very tomboy/comfy/cute. Babs’ is dealing with a lot in grad school and fighting crime in her off hours so we figured she would be not the biggest fashionista. She would most 
definitely go for comfy cute before shiny and pink. She never rocks a lot of make or curls her hair before shes goes out the door. BUT Babs’ has got the 5 min makeup routine down and has a hand full of cute go-to hair styles that require minimal effort and can be achieved while running out the door to class! 

Hopefully this is a fun look at the thought process that goes into dressing Babs :)
