I’m pulling this post from my comic website at Decimated Eden.com
For those of you who doesn’t know, Lora Innes of The Dreamer Comic is leading the Comic Creators Alliance again this time with a new name. The CCA is now known to as the Comic Creators for Freedom (CCF) and all information about this event is located at their website.
The CCA was created to help fight human trafficking and many of us comic creators have joined with Lora to make a huge digital wallpaper for the cause. Those that have chosen to donate will receive a digital download of the wallpaper for their desktop. I believe there are other ways to support the cause to stop human trafficking as well like buying prints for those that want to have a physcial form of the themed wallpaper.
Two years ago the CCA had raised up to $10,000 for the both Love146 and Gracehaven, last year $5,000. With over 100 comic creators participating last year an about 80 the year before. I would like to spread the word to my fellow comic creators or even ARTISTS out there that may be interested in joining. You don’t have to be a comic creator to join I don’t think, but it would probably be preferred since it requires you to have a female character to participate in the themed wallpaper. If you don’t have a comic but a character I’m sure it would be fine to use a link to your art portfolio or something. You might have to email the head director in all this to find out.
This is also a good way to get exposure for your site and it is for a good cause. You may also learn a thing or two about the cause and why organizations like Love146 and Gracehaven was formed.
Well I did get started on working on the image for the CCF yesterday and I’m pretty say I’m happy how it’s turning out. Although there are issues to the pose and stance that kind of bothers me. Especially the perspective part on one of the legs of the character. There is a 1 hour video posting of it on my livestream channel to see the process of the image piece. Though I doubt anyone would want to sit and watch how slow I draw for an hour. The image is at the stage of coloring right now and trying my best to make it look nice. Here’s the work in progress.
So far that is what I have. Hopefully I will get it done before the end of the month. I might have to bring my tablet with me to get it finished up or work on it with my old graphire tablet. I’m not very keen on bringing so many electronics to New York / CT with me though but if I have to get things finished I may have to.
