If you're up for drawing a heavily tattooed character, Abúi from Abúi's Travels is available and in the mood for a casual hookup. Comic canon (soon to be revealed) is that she hasn't been laid for a few years and that she only sleeps with other faeries; however, I've been soliciting alternate universe versions of the character and drawing some of my own, so it's OK to ignore canon and call it an AU.
Abúi is red-headed, pointy-eared, winged, about 5'3" when at full size but able to shrink down to about the size of a cat. I had some reference posted on an earlier thread:


[spoiler]A faerie who presents herself as a skinny, pale white woman with luxurious red hair and covered in tattoos. She has wings and very large pointy ears. She is in her early 30s which means she's about as mature as a human woman in her early 20s. She doesn't normally sleep with non-faeries, but she's ready to make an exception. Her real size is about 12 inches tall; however, she can scale herself up to human size at will, with the proviso that she's only about 5 feet all at full expansion.

Fuller visual reference that is a few years out of date but shows her tattoos off better:

I have a DA and I'm very active on it. Find it here: reinder.deviantart.com. I post WIPs, sketches, character art and finished comic pages, though lately I've been aiming more to get people to go from DeviantArt to my comics websites.

Clowns have red noses, a goofy grin, drooping eyes, unkempt hair and clothes that do not fit them. They move awkwardly and fall over a lot. What does that remind you of?

I'm a bit late requesting this, but I've only just made the decision to do this:
On May 27, the last of the old White House in Orbit comics from the early 2000s will run on its ComicFury site (with the exception of a Christmas story, which I'm holding back for December obviously). I've decided to also run the three guest comics that were made back then as well, by Xavier Xerexes, Srdjan "McDuffies" and Geir Strøm & Jim Byrt. So this may be a good time for people who are interested to submit some new guest comics!

Since it's a fairly unknown comic, here's what you need to know:
White House in Orbit is the future, as imagined in the past, as seen through the eyes of today! Well, the early 2000s, anyway. It's the year 3030, an era of flying cars, fishbowl helmets and floating cities in space. The Orbital United States, a noble bastion of freedom and democracy (cheers, applause), faces many threats: dastardly Krauts from the Orbital German Empire (boo!), the Solar Nipponese (hiss!), Martian slavers (throw rotten tomatoes), homegrown drug runners with terrible fashion sense who can't keep their accents straight (heckling!), and his Plutocratic Excellency President Samuel Perkins's inability to keep it in his pants (start one Congressional investigation after another). Following in the footsteps of the legendary Lawmen of The Keystone, Special Agents X8.5 and Jane from the Seriously Secret Service put their lives at risk to keep all those threats at bay.
White House in Orbit is both an affectionate parody of newspaper comics and science fiction movies and literature from before 1940, and a satire on contemporary mores and media stereotypes. Read it on ComicFury here: http://whio.webcomic.ws/

Comic is currently flagged for Nudity but nothing else. We are willing to accept guest comics that require extra flags, but discuss your idea with us first if that's what you're planning to do.

The Grand Tour will end with another sequence of Abúi and company Br-Zotting in and out of different universes, as done earlier in the main storyline. So I can accommodate quick, uninvolving cameos.

Bumping this right back up for a status update: I've completed the first leg of Abúi's Grand Tour, in Kaza and Gwenna's universe, and the second leg, crossing over into another massive-megacrossover. In the process, our ladies have picked up a straggler as well as some scrapes, bruises, bandages and a touch of sunburn.

I'd like to do Misfits of Mischief next, but it may take a while. I have some significant deadlines coming up for my main comic, Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan and these are going to take a lot of my drawing time. But I will get in touch with Xailenrath about plotting and such.

He's made a dozen great records that stand the test of time. He's also made several dozen crap ones. I think he's at his best in the live prison recordings, where they caught a rowdy atmosphere on tape that you don't really find anywhere else.
The voice is an acquired taste, but it's not a million miles away from, say, Nick Cave. If you have difficulty getting into Nick Cave as well then it's possible the type of voice is turning you off and that's hard to overcome. I have the same issue with Lou Reed, whose work I respect but can never truly enjoy.

That "ditto" was a color, presumably beige-ish.

Not a misconception but just something that I'd never given much thought to: I had no idea until I was well past 40 what poaching an egg actually was - and when I learned, I was appalled that people did that to an egg on purpose.

I'd love to do another one. Maybe with characters from one of my other comics...

Mine is done and sent in PM to Epiale. Commentary, larger versions and minor changes doable on request - I don't really know how that works with exchanges like this one and feel kind of dumb for not asking.

This is top of mind now, as they say in the world of corporate BS. Paradigm-shifting synergy to be achieved, ASAP.

Sketchbook Pro for penciling and inking, Photoshop for color flatting and lettering, and sometimes for full-color treatments as well. When my wife does shading and touchups for me, she mostly uses Sketchbook Pro for that, but I'm more comfortable doing those in Photoshop whenever I do them myself.

I will probably be submitting very close to the deadline as I've committed to a lot of art stuff lately. Just a heads-up.

This is a great exercise, but why depend on stock photos with watermarks and all that jazz? I did a portrait challenge last January where I basically asked my friends on Facebook if they wanted to submit their photograph and get a free portrait. I got enough submissions for the whole month (taking the occasional break). People love this!

I can't show the source photos because they're all from my friends on FB and not intended for wider distribution. But here's a DA gallery folder with the results from last January and some from the year before:

I've decided that instead of a prank, I'd do a stunt this year, by updating six different webcomics at almost the same time. Going live in five minutes...

I also represent and publish a writer/artist team (Geir Strøm and Daniel Østvold) who are both 60. They're not directly involved in the community for different reasons (one has serious health problems, the other has little interest in the internet), so I don't know if that counts.

This is still on and I"m in fact making the first comics as part of someone else's guest comic period.
