Welcome New Creators from 2021 – Introduce yourself herePosted by buddyscalera on October 30, 2021 at 10:38 pm
Following NYCC 2021, we have had a lot of new creators sign up. Welcome.
Here’s a place to introduce yourself. Tell us what comics you love. Tell us what kinds of comic books you want to make.
If you are an artist, feel free to post 2-3 images. If you are a writer or an artist, you can also post a link to your website or social media.

My name is Rich. I don’t know if I should be using this thread to introduce myself since it’s from last year, but heeeere I goooo. I’m a rapper & visual artist (painter, I used to be a tagger long ago). I don’t know exactly how I came across the Comic Book School. I think I was just Googling “how to publish your own comic book” & I think the YouTube channel might’ve popped up. Since a preteen comic books have been my “happy place” & have made me the man that I am today. Comic books single handily spurred my creativity. I’ve been drawing since a toddler, but the Marvel comics of the 90’s really inspired me.
Comics that I've always loved: X-Men, Spider-man, Punisher, Moonknight (I'm hyped for this upcoming series), The Hulk (Dr. Banner & the StarJammers were some of my favorite comics), Wolverine, & Spawn. More currently I've been reading Spawn & Killadelphia, though this was all pre-pandemic. I haven't read anything since Summer 2020. <br />
I aspire to write and illustrate comics. I AM A NOVICE, A ROOKIE, A AMATEUR. I have no idea how to get into the comics book industry. I know from my cousin who is an art design teacher that I need to invest in products to transfer my art into the digital form, BUT LOL I do not know what to buy. Right now I have a printer that scans.
I typed a lot. So here’s a few pics of art. I REALLY suck at hands, feet, & matter of fact the whole body below the face (faces are my thing).

eIDIOS, welcome to the boards!
Here’s a Japanese tutorial for hands that I found helpful. Finding balance in the components is key…

Hi, Rich @RICHelDIOS – It’s great to have you here. It’s also super cool that we keep adding people who have an interest in comics AND music. There’s always been an overlap in the arts.
I know for sure that we have some musicans here, including @evolver .
Also, check out this video where we talk about the new graphic novel featuring Judas Priest.
And thanks for sharing your art. We’re going to set up a board soon for people to share their work. Stay tuned!

I am Glen Gottilla and I am a writer looking for people to collaborate with others on science fiction, horror or fantasy. I have contributed some Flash Fiction to Comic book Schools Second Anthology, ‘Panel 2’. I wrote a cute little story about a copyright safe knock off of Batboy, a Bigfoot, a clone of the young hot Elvis and the ghost of the tabloid journalist. It is called the “Consequences of Journalism and the Changing Times”
This year I would like to contribute a short comic to the next anthology so I am looking to work with artists, Inkers, Letterers and Editors. The best way to contact to me is via Twitter, Facebook (I know I am old) and on Comicbook School. I have attached a link to the Anthology so check my everything that is in it.

Hey, @redoart97 – I would suggest that you post your portfolio in the Help Wanted message boards here:
This thread is a good starting place, but the Help Wanted section is even better. You can even look inside the Collaborations Wanted and Paying Jobs boards to see if there’s anything right now for you. You can tag me by putting the @ symbol and starting to type the first few letters of my name. It will find my name and you can tag me.

My name is Jorge Alvarez, I used to run an indie comic book review blog called Comic Unknown. I began to write out a whole bunch of ideas a few years back and managed to flesh out a few of those into scripts. I still don’t have anything published yet but I’m already working on my first book which is a twist on zombie horror.
As for the other ideas they vary from a western revenge, children adventure story of a dog, a middle of the night alien invasion, and maybe three or four more stories that aren’t fleshed out yet.

We are just kicking off our next community-created anthology for this year, and we’d love to encourage you to contribute.
That being said, to join a creative team simply reach out to the other creators here, and if there are any other creative friends you have, feel free to invite them to join in too.
I hope to see more of your work soon!
