"Spider-Verse" is essentially a war story, so there’s no guarantee Gwen Stacy will survive. But if she does, would you be interested in telling more stories with her?

Renzi:Of course! I’d love to do more Gwen stories with Jason and Robbi!

Latour:Absolutely. I’m not involved in the grander strokes of “Spider-Verse,” so I don’t know what the big plans are, but I do know she’ll be making a couple of appearances in Dennis Hopeless’ new “Spider-Woman” book, and I’m thrilled by that. Dennis is going to do fun things with her. If she’s around after all the dust clears, and everyone seems to want it, I think there’s probably more that could be said. So long as it’s natural and in keeping with the tone we’re trying to establish.

Rodriguez:I think we all would, deep down. I think we all have a bit more to say with her, but I guess that’s really up to the readers to make this issue a hit, and the powers that be. I hope we gave the reading audience a Spider-Woman that’s more than just background filler, or just a character whose sole existence was to fill in a copyright hole.

I dunno about you guys but I could read 100 issues of this, easy.

THE TIME IS UPON US

Let’s take a look at what we’ve got here. Not only does she become Spider-Woman, but Pete becomes the Lizard, dies, and then she gets chased by the cops because she’s blamed for his death. 

That sounds like one hell of a set up for a series to me!

THERE IS ALWAYS THE POSSIBILITY OF GETTING A SPIDER-GWEN SERIES, IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW WELL THIS ISSUE SELLS! I HAVE IT ON GOOD AUTHORITY THAT THIS CAN AND WOULD BE A THING IF IT GETS ENOUGH SUPPORT! THE CREATIVE TEAM IS 100% BEHIND THE IDEA! PLEASE PROMOTE AND SUPPORT THIS ISSUE!

  • Do not forget Michael Brown

  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

A few tips everybody should consider. I’ve experienced all those and some more. I’m not good at english but I hope you get it. Go and support some artists out there and let them draw you nice shit. Not as nice as FairyNekoDesu but still will be cool so give them a chance and you’ll be surprised.

THIIIIS.

All of these things.

Especially the deadline. If you don’t have a deadline thats way in advanced it’s not gonna get done by then. I am almost always taking on a ton of projects at once and sometimes need a break from it to: work on stuff for me, work on stuff for friends, search for jobs, be the work slave of parents, actually relax and try to relief stress, technical difficulties, researching on how to do stuff, ect.

Sometimes it’s done in a day. Sometimes it’s done literally a year later. But I always update the people I work with so they know I haven’t forgotten.

Do NOT rush your commissioner. Let them work at their pace and it will be worth it. Rushing them insures a rush job which will very likely make the quality decline.

All this is true. Also, ref sheets are the most important thing ever. I can’t stress that enough. They make the job A LOT easier (instead of having to compare 10 different pics between each other and see that everything fits, you just look at 1!!)  If you plan in commissioning your character a lot, or even if its not yours (like from an anime or something) Either commission one or look for ref sheets of the show (because there are!).

Also i strongly suggest not using Instant Messaging. Information can be lost pretty easily there and it’s hard to come back to it. Use emails instead. The info stays there, and it’s easy to search for it. It’s also an excellent way to keep track of the descriptions, so if either the client or artist made a mistake, you can see the email threads and see who’s right straight away.

also pushy clients LOVE instant messaging. Pls no.

This post is really nice! :D

Keven Stonewall Is On His Way To Finding A Cure For Cancer

19 year old Stonewallhopes to one day create a vaccine that will eradicate colon cancer. The Chicago South Side youth has already started working on a potential cancer cure at a Rush University laboratory.

The youth’s love of science began back in fifth grade, when he became fascinated by the appearance of cells under a microscope. Stonewall’s love of the sciences grew to such extremes that one Christmas he was gifted four microscopes by his parents who are educators. It was during his freshman year at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences that Stonewall began focusing on the need for the eradication of colon cancer.  He watched not only a dear friend’s uncle succumb to the disease but witnessed first hand how the illness negatively impacted his school mate, telling DNAInfo Chicago, “Cancer has taken over a whole bunch of lives, and I felt like I needed to step up and do something about it.”

Stonewall was a senior in high school when he jumped on the opportunity to do an internship at the university, which is the academic arm of the Rush Medical Center.  He worked in the lab with a professor who taught immunology/microbiology and general surgery. Stonewall began to consume literature about how a chemotherapeutic agent could possibly destroy certain cancer cells while still promoting a healthy immune response.

The young researcher, who has already won numerous awards for his research and was a finalist for theIntel International Science and Engineer Fairlast year, then began testing his potential vaccine on mice. He injected a concentrated amount of the cancer-treating drugMitoxantronein younger and older mice. Stonewall then injected the rodents with aggressive colon cancer cells.

Stonewall waited three days to check out the effects of his experiment: The younger mice benefitted from the vaccine as their cancer was in fact eradicated and they had developed immunity.  The older mice were still ridden with the cancerous tumors.

“[He] should be heralded for helping to develop more effective colon cancer treatments that will impact the elderly, the population that is most susceptible to colon cancer.  He has all the tools. He will go far.”

Stonewall, who is now a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, is still working on the vaccine that he prays will one day be tested on humans.  The young man is keeping hope alive that his work will in fact be the answer to a dreaded disease that has taken the lives of many, so until then, he tells the New York Daily News, “If you don’t plan to succeed, you’re planning to fail.”

James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.

From the film’s IndieGo page:

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

Ferguson Police Sued for $41.5 Million Over Civil Rights Abuses

thepoliticalfreakshow:

Six plaintiffs are suing the Ferguson and St. Louis County police forces, alleging that the officers’ arrests and use of tear gas and rubber bullets violated their civil rights.

During protests following the August 9 shooting of unarmed Missouri teen Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, hundreds of people were arrested by officers, who used tear gas and rubber bullets to break up crowds. The plaintiffs are seeking $41.5 million from the two police forces, both of their police chiefs and a series of unnamed Officer John Does, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri by Black Lawyers for Justice, a group based in Washington D.C. The claims against the officers range from unlawful arrests and use of militaristic force between August 10 and 13, according to the suit. One plaintiff, Tracey White, said she and her son were arrested in a McDonald’s after attending a peaceful protest. According to the suit, White said police officers told her to leave the restaurant, and when she tried to tell the officers that her son was in the restroom, they arrested her for not shutting up:

Another plaintiff, Dewayne A. Matthews, said he was visiting his mother, who lives near where the protests take place. Matthews claims he was surrounded by eight officers while trying get around a road block and shot with rubber bullets. 

Other plaintiffs claimed that officers kicked them and “hurled racial epithets” while arresting them.

On August 14, the day after the events in the suit occurred, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered the Missouri State Highway Patrol to take over control of the Ferguson protests. Meanwhile St. Louis County and the U.S. Justice Department are investigating Michael Brown’s shooting, and a Grand Jury is considering whether to bring charges against the officer who killed Brown.
