I'm putting together a crossover project for next year to run through multiple comics and hopefully benefit the Hero Initiative.  If you want to participate, e-mail me at or PQ me on this site.
I've also started an IndieGoGo campaign to help me pay for artists for my projects.  Please go to the campaign site and donate some money.  I would appreciate it if you could give money.  There are some fun perks involved.  The site is here:
Also, Heroes Alliance, here on Drunk Duck, has begun uploading a story I wrote and many drew.  Sure, I drew more pages than anyone else, but there is some great art in it, too.  I wrote the story two years ago, so it's nice to see it finally going up.  It's updating daily and is epic in length.
Top page: I'm still not drawing the fire background, because I'm not very good at it.  But aside from that, I also wanted to mention that panels 1 and 2 are supposed to be from the protagonist's perspective.  It was interesting to do the setup this way, though, and I hope it works for the page.
Bottom page: Astral and Sparkle investigate the home of Dylan Magnahurst.  I'm trying to do things justice, but I'm not sure.  I didn't design Dylan, and hope I drew him decently there.  I figured that, since the reference I had was not in color, I would make his picture be in black and white, so I wouldn't get the colors wrong.
And for yesterday's page, I forgot to mention that I was referencing two transgender superheroes.  Kate is Kate Godwin, aka Coagula from DC Comics's Doom Patrol, who was created by Rachel Pollack, and later killed by John Arcudi.  Lukasz is Mantra of Malibu Comics–a company bought by Marvel and now in limbo since Marvel might not have the rights anymore.
