I found the problem, and Coela fixed it.
WE MAKE GOOD TEAM
I figure as long as people are paying attention, I’ll point people towards some of the things I’m looking at these days;
Brian Evinou’s Art Blog: One of my fellow Ugly Americans Crewmates, an indie comics guy with some of the most rad inking mastery I’ve had the pleasure of observing. He hits up a decent number of cons and the like, so it’s worth paying attention to what he’s up to so you can hit him up for comics and sketches and stuff.
Stplmstr’s Zuda: Another one of the UA crew, this guy’s comics just completely floor me. Everyone needs to go vote up his Zuda stuff so he can score a contract or something through them, because if he doesn’t become madly successful doing this kind of thing there is no justice in the world. He also has a wealth of non-comicky things up on his DA.
Stuff by TK: A recent addition to the UA crew, keep your eye out for some of the comic stuff she’s plotting up. In the meantime, you can find her selling her wares at cons every now and then. Be sure to check out her DA gallery as well.
I’ve also been reading EK Weaver’s comic,The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal lately and enjoying it a lot. I dunno, really believable personalities and the pacing is top notch (Which I know from experience is difficult to pull off when you’re only feeding the audience a couple pages a week) the art makes me really nostalgic for the manga I used to read way back in the day before the style exploded and took over the mainstream. Kind of like Hitoshi Iwaaki without the dismemberment.
I really want to thank everybody for all of the barbarians, nearly eighty different people sent stuff along! I strongly recommend checking them out, there is some really top-notch stuff in there. And if you feel like contributing to the pile, just drop me a link and I’ll add you!
I feel as though it would be inappropriate for me to gush too much over what an upstanding human being Frank Frazetta was, because getting all starry-eyed always cheapens the occasion. He was truly a genre-defining master of his craft as well as an upstanding example of a man living the American dream, he worked hard to be the best at what he did and inspired generations of people to come after him.
I think if you consider yourself to be of the art-inclined persuasion and you feel like Frazetta’s work has made an impact on the way you work, you should draw a barbarian. And then tell all your friends to draw a barbarian. Pass it on to your DA buddies, your Tegaki followers, your school pals, your favourite webcomic artists, anyone you can think of who can pick up a pencil. Draw a barbarian and pass on the word. If it’s any more incentive, tell me about anyone you can get to draw one and I’ll post a collection of them all here. So we can get a big collection of Barbarians for Frank.

Vorked here. Just letting you all know that I am dealing with a huge spam attack here, and installing some new material to help stop the spam. Like math questions. If you want to post, you will first have to answer a math question in order for the post to go through. This will stop most of the spam, so Coelasquid can go on her day worry-free. We cannot have her panicking and hiding in a closet just because of some spam.
I was just informed that Frank Frazetta passed away earlier today. I’m at work at the moment and don’t have the resources to put together a fitting tribute, but rest assured something will be up tonight. Frank Frazetta was a great artist, a great man, and the patron saint of everything I believe in.
He lived a good, full life, but man. He will be sorely missed.
