James Jean

Hey, everyone. I just thought you should all take a look at James Jean if you haven't before. He's not a comic artist per se but he has done some cover art for comics and gets a ton of work doing commercial illustration. Plus his sketchbook is just incredible.

His main website is:

but he has a great blog at:

Really makes you want to draw!

More Recommendations?

Hi all- thought I'd take the chance to share one of the webcomics I follow- Girl Genius, written and drawn by Professors Phil and Kaja Foglio. The tagline of "Adventure, Romance, Mad Science!" sums it up rather nicely, but it has plenty of comedy and a lot of world building too.

I know there's Bakuman from the team behind Deathnote and Moebiuss work- does anyone have more titles or authors they would recommend off hand?

Moebius/Sci-Fi Site


I decided since Moebius is one of my favorite artists to post the site that shows him actually drawing and his process. Also If you would like a copy of my power point just in case anyone wanted to look at it again to get some information on him and see more of his artwork let me know and I can send it to you in an email :). Just copy and paste this link and you should be redirected to it. Also underneath the link for Moebius' video is another link to a website that has a lot of information for sci-fi artists. This is where i found the video Time Masters that Moebius worked on in the early 80's and tons of other information on other science fiction artwork and videos! Enjoy!

Good ol' Ink tip

How's everyone doin?

Just recently stumbled upon a tutorial video by Mark Crilly.
In this video Mark Crilly, artist of Miki Falls, presents a lesson on how to ink with micron pens, with some helpful tips about crosshatching technique.
I like how this vid show how much crosshatching is enough so it will not ruin the drawing. Also the video, not only he teaches how to do crosshatching, he teaches how to ink properly (hair, eye, mouth, and ear).

Check it out, and I hope it helps you!~

PS Ignore the site that shows up on the video, some person took the vid and began to use it as an advertisement.
