Mr Happy 1 - pg 3
Ok so on this page we see that the cover isn't a gimmick but it actually pays off with something that happens in the book itself. Wish more big time comics did this. I'm pretty sick of comics that have exciting covers but the content isn't reflected in the story within, the ole bait in switch steals another $4 bucks! Not so with Southern Comics friends! If
it's on the cover its gonna be in the book!

So we see the beach is not so idyllic as it first appeared. Who would have thought in a superhero comic that local danger would be prevalent? Luckily there is a (somewhat oblivious) hero hanging out on the beach!

So I got tagged by :iconblazeknightdt: and decided this might be fun so here goes.

🌟 How old are you? Middleaged

🌟What gender and pronouns do you identify with? Sorry, I don't go in for this 72 gender crap. I'm a man, nuff said.

🌟 How social are you? Online, not overly social I'd say, I really need to better utilize my various social medias. But in real life, I'm extremely social. I generally prefer to deal with people face to face, even over talking on the phone to someone.

🔆 ART Not sure exactly what this meant as its just a single word so I'm left to interpret as best I can. Obviously yes, I do art. I largely work in illustration of a comic book type or style. I'm also proficient in pure illustration, that its illustration that does not have the particular stylization of comic book art. I'm also skilled at photomanipulations, painting and airbrushing but Ive been working almost exclusively digitally for several years now.

🌟 How long have you been on DeviantART? Wow, 10 years, had no idea it had been so long.

🌟 What are your future plans for the site? Continuing to use the site as a place to showcase my art and solicit work but now also to promote my comic book Mr Happy. Mr Happy 1: Cover

🌟 Do you want to pursue a career in art? Oh yes, in some fashion or another but what I'd really love to do is at least make a living producing a Mr Happy comic book and at best have a sprawling comic book company the likes of Marvel in the 90s and cameoing in a mega-successful series of films about my comic book universe. Hey, might as well dream big if you're gonna dream.

🌟 On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your art skills? Honestly, I'd have to say a 5. I do some things reasonably well but I'm FAR behind where I want to be. I can point to artists here half my age who run circles around me. It's mostly because I allowed myself to be discouraged several times in my life from pursuing art. There were stretches where I didn't draw a thing for almost a decade. If I'd been committed from the time I was at least in high school forward I could arguably at the level of pros like Jim Lee. Lesson, don't ever give up because if you stop using it you do indeed lose it. 

🌟 Do you ever plan on leaving DeviantART? I don't foresee any reason to. I've had to take hiatuses due to outside circumstances from time to time but this site is still my favorite art community.

🌟 Who is your favorite visual artist? Jeez, no way I could name just one! I've been inspired by so many people over the years. Gun to my head maybe Frank Frazetta as his career was very diverse with his art being used for comics, movies, animation, metal albums, fantasy books and more I'm sure. I'd love for my body of work to bee all over the place like that. Man was a legend!

🌟 Do you use a tablet or a mouse? Currently, I draw using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD which is really nice but soon I hope to purchase an iPad Pro 12.9 inch. It will grant me more flexibility and mobility that my current set up does.

🌟 How long does it usually take you to complete your artwork? Depends really, anywhere from a day to a week depending on the project. For instance, a comic book page can take 3 days or more. This is because I have to pencil, ink, color, letter everything myself.

🌟 How well do you handle criticism? Very well. Talk to a few editors at a comic con and you grow a thick skin fast! You have to be able to take criticism if you want to make it as an artist in my opinion.

🔆 RELATIONSHIPS Happily married for many years now.

🌟 What is your sexuality/romantic preference? I luvs tha women!

🌟 Are you currently in a relationship? Previously answered.

🌟 Is your partner/spouse a deviant? No, while she is in fact, a creative herself (she makes jewelry) she has never shown an interest in joining the community. Perhaps she should showcase some of her jewelry here.

🌟 How long have you been together? Longer than some of you have been alive.

Mr Happy 1 - pg 2
Alright, here we go page two. Just a little set up page, setting the, um well, setting...heh. And as you can see Mr Happy is prepared for a day at the beach. What you cant see is that he is wearing swim fins but the page didnt work out quite the way I wanted it to so you cant see them. The full body shot just seemed a bit weaker than making him bigger in the frame. This choice was also made to keep from sort of repeating the image on the cover as the poses are somewhat similar. 

Set up out of the way expect some hijinx to begin on the next page.

Mr. J
This is the second piece I did the night before free comic book day for local Comic/Game/Toy store Players Choice (www.facebook.com/PlayersChoice…). I decided since I'd done a Batman bracey100.deviantart.com/art/I… I should do a Joker as well, so folks buying one could have the option of getting a set if they liked. 

I did this piece based on a painting I did many years ago: bracey100.deviantart.com/art/T… as I wanted to see how it would look as a drawing. Turned out pretty good I think. Plus this was further experimentation with trying to make my digital work look traditional after watching some videos by Robert Marzullo on YouTube (this one in particular: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD6IWS…).

Be sure check out Rob's videos (he's also here on DA :iconrobertmarzullo:), he does lots of great tutorials using all the major programs and general comic/art techniques.

PS: I've included the full-size image as a download should anyone wants to color it.

I'm Batman
So for free comic book day a local Comic/Game/Toy store Players Choice (www.facebook.com/PlayersChoice…) invited me out to set up a table and do sketches and promote myself. Turned out to be a profitable day netting me some much needed money. 

While I did many sketches yesterday this is one of two finished pieces I did the night before to bring to the store and sell. After watching some videos by Robert Marzullo on YouTube (this one in particular: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD6IWS…) I wanted to see if I could get my digital drawing to look a lot more like traditional pen and ink work. This was the result.

Also check out Rob's videos (he's also here on DA :iconrobertmarzullo:), he does lots of great tutorials using all the major programs and general comic/art techniques. 

PS: I've included the full-size image as a download should anyone want to color it.

Hey man,

I take it you are slowly cleaning up your Inbox right now?
Wanted to inform you that I started a new ( commissioned ) Vigil comic.
Would love to hear your two cents on it so far :-)

Oh I have a laundry list of characters you wouldn't believe (including kaiju) but given my love of the genre yeah first issue starts with a kaiju fight. I've got writeups for over 380 characters currently and only have art done for mmmm 40 - 45 I think. I keep thinking up cool characters! I can't stop myself. 

The book will indeed be a mix of the super fun and lighthearted but will also include some pretty serious drama as well. Ive developed a rather complex mythology for my world which I havent ever seen done before. My days with the DU explored some of the most basic concepts but Ive done a lot of writing in the past year to really flesh out how my world works.
