    @Paul Sizer: Screenflow is considered the best, but Screenflick works nicely, and is only $25. It savwes in .mov, and can export to many different types except for .sfw, I think uploading to youtube does that automatically though.

    @ Ed Sludden- looks good ! (even considering the technical frustrations!)

    @ Ed, @ Morac @ Kperkins- how does the capture in these programs work? Is the computer automatically recording frames at preset intervals? Curious. I did one of these videos before but shot it with a high-def video camera from beneath plexi-glass with huge film lamps, not very cheap nor practical ...

    Basically, everything that is getting piped from your video card to your monitor is being written to a file on your computer at the same time. It's a bit more complicated than that, but that's the general idea.

    With camstudio you can choose how many frames are recorded every minute and you have to decide
    beforehand whether to save out a swf or an avi. There are a couple of other options to set the screen
    resolution and one of them is a custom rectangle that you can draw over the working area. Its pretty easy
    to use. Its also very bare-bones, which you could see as a strength.
    Some of the other packages will also take care of editing for you, but if you just want to cue up a group
    of Avi's theres bound to be a cheap option, such as WindowsMovieMaker. I found WMM to be a bit flaky
    but at least it doesn't have Premieres problems with dodgy exporting/compressing of your finished film.

    I've been busy drawing my comic and some t-shirt designs for a musician friend, which I can't really share any of that stuff. But I can share these.

    This is warm-up I did covering a Mahfood picture I loved. I liked it enough to color it as well.

    And then this is a fat Sandman sketch I did at work:

    Well I colored it in, not sure it hangs together too well, and it doesn't scale down great either,- my color sense is poor at best but I think I had some sort of episode when I did this!!
    orange mess

    @Kyle - mega dinosaur!!
    @HeyApathy - I'd like to claim the distorted anatomy was deliberate but I'm just crap at drawing people :)
    @sebfowler / @neila - I think BatManatee versus SharkPony will have to be settled sooner or later.
    @valente - Superman smoking!! but what other habits does he keep hidden?
    @anopheles - love it!!
    @ruzkin - like the R's in the iris reflections and the beautifully restrained use of color
    @seantaclus - really love your bots
    @mercurialblonde - beautiful style

    Hey, everybody. Havn't done this in a while. I've seen many beautyful works in the last months. I'm working on many stuff right now, but here's some doodles I made recently.

    Hmmm, too biggy.

    Some ugly piece I did...

    "Scary Monsters
    Super Creeps..."

    Well, that's it. For now. Uh, I'll try to take some time to comment on someone else's work, but just for the record, It is obvious why I keep comming to this thread each motnh: because YOU PEOPLE ARE FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!! See ya.

    @Morac & Sludden -thanks for the info. I think everyone should record all their drawings if the software is efficient, I mean why not? more promo material.

    @ Battguano - oh I like the colored piece ( also I wasn't refering to the anatony so much as the sizes of the characters- there is just something surreal about the weird giant and disproportionate Knight on Horse)

    @ JP Stargazer- nice stuff! love the white inks in the first pic and all the images are creepy awesome

    @Hey_Apathy - I never waste an opportunity to call my character drawing crap! :) its still pretty hit and miss. In this case I began the giant too low on the page and started running out of paper so his lower legs got pretty truncated, I fixed things a bit when I did the coloring but after I posted it they immediately stood out as being too short. I'd normally concoct some excuse like its a deformity caused by carrying all that heavy armor - along with his bowlegged stance :)
    @JP Stargazer - Epic stuff!
    @William Joseph Dunn - magnificent background work - The palettes you use are wonderful!

    @harchangel - Wow, reminds me also of the Redwall books I used to read as a kid.

    Everyone else, great work too!

    Er...I have nothing artful to contribute...just adding compliments...*backs away slowly*

    Another page from Shut

    Here's a link to my first self-published book!
    A page from shut

    It was a lot of fun to make. Basically just a lot of violence and angst with ludicrous commandments. Surprisingly, I sold out of all the books I made! They were all hand bound, the covers inked and painted, and numbered to a limited edition.

    Yet another page from Shut

    I'm currrently submitting to publishers to see if it will infect bookshops. I'm looking to expand the 1st edition by creating more content and keeping the theme.

    Is this is the appropriate place to ask for feedback on other possible avenues for publication? Or to get small press publishers interested in new work?

    Hi all. Warren certainly did not ask me to do a three panels piece.

    But I did anyway:

    She Could Leave

    JP, I love the first one there. Looks like an alien cave painting.

    @BattGuano - thanks! I'm looking at your piece and I don't think your color sense is "poor". The way you added some of the background color to the knight's armor is really working for me.

    @mojokingbee - thanks. Really like how spontaneous your inks are and how you tie it all up with a simple color. Especially the first one. I'm pretty sure B:TB&tB is showing in Australia. Producer James Tucker went to a con there last year for an appearance.

    @mercurialblonde - I like the texture on the first one. your line work reminds me of Crepax a little, which I like.

    @JP Stargazer - I really like that 3rd one. I wouldn't call it "ugly".

    Catching up on all the things I've been meaning to say this month:
    @jackcrowder - Thank you for the kind words, far upthread - seriously, thank you so much. Also, your art all thru the thread is fucking killer
    @mercurialblonde - stunning colour work on the Moebius piece
    @Oddbill - the Left Bank burlesque sketches are wonderful.
    @Initiatezao - BATHOMBRE!
    @Miranda - Killer stuff, always.
    @supersecretid - Glorious take on Dark Phoenix.
    @lomopop - super digging the Edward Gorey vibe. The world still needs more. One of my goals in life is to do a picture-book-that-ain't-for-kids as he did.
    @harchangel - fabulous colours & everything on the deep sea diver (Stella was a diver and she was always...).
    @Amalgamated Biscuit - The expression in the last panel of the "Comfortable" strip is absolutely perfect.
    @used_bandaid - an honour to have you posting here.
    @mojokingbee - every time I see your name, it's attached to something awesome.
    @Valente - Super creepy double conjoined Frankenstein's monsters. Also, yr Superman sort of reminds me of a former US president, but I can't think which one. Which is an interesting association.
    @Alberto - Think that's actually my favourite Ident/Remake/Remodel - such a classy piece. Really reminds me of a high-end indie gig poster - if it were, I'd see the band on it, no question.
    @Dirtbag_Kingdom - that is JUST the right amount of FILTHY to put in a Molotov Cocktease pinup.
    @Seantaclaus - Love the "Floater" bot - very ominous. The colour choices and the lighting effects are spot on.
    @ruzkin - Is that cyberpunk. Post-cyberpunk. Cyberpost-punk? What ever it is, it's great.
    @no cuddle time - horrific subject, but yr style/textures/colours are fabulous.

    And after all that, I have only this to show you:

    Lake Baikal, Siberia, winter:


    (This took FOREVER and is the only thing I've actually finished in AGES because I've been going MENTAL).

    @256 That very impressive.
    @BattGuano Love the finished piece.
