Character Design Brainstorming: The Witch

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 19, 2020



The witch is different than a sorceress, though their affinity with magic and their powers often can overlap: the sorceress carries status; the witch carries fear.

It's not that the sorceress is not potentially feared or the witch is not potentially respected- it's that the core of their ...

At around ten o’clock on Friday morning, I was refreshing my email box for any messages from the boss regarding the status on whether we were required to report to work the following week. There was no word sent from the higher ups that was being trickled down.

Sexposition (Do NOT Google That)

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 21, 2019



The word for ‘porn’ in Greek is unsurprisingly ‘porn’. But its vernacular synonym is a word that in reality means ‘tack-on’ or ‘added scrap’. It signifies the common (or at least until recently common) assumption that scenes with explicit sexual activity were there to pad the runtime for a movie ...

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, March 18, 2017



So last week I talked about the basic principles of dialogue, so the recipe to the cake itself. But now I’d also like to talk about that cake’s icing and trimmings- what will make the dialogue we’re writing be fun and distinct and pop in our comic ...

Octal Comic Sampler!

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Dec. 6, 2015



I was approached by an enterprising young chap to spruik the comic sampler his work is part of: AJ Fulcher, writer of the new comic Sin. It features as one of the 8 page sample comics in the aptly named Octal (8 = the number of pages & comics)!
It's a very clever way of marketing new work. They sell the whole thing to readers as a PDF download and also offer the sampler to comic publishers so they can get a taste of the pilot work and see if they want to go ahead with them.

Octal Volume 1 is available now through DriveThru Comics:
Link: http://www.drivethrucomics.com/product/166649/Octal-Volume-1
(You can preview a low-res version of the entire volume in Quick Preview and one complete packet in the Full-Sized Preview without purchase.)

If you are a comic editor, reviewer, or member of a publishing staff and you would like to receive free copies of this and future volumes of Octal, email neofluxproductions@gmail.com with the subject line: ‘Octal Mailer’.
