Hi, I just wanted to tell you that I love the way you draw, I know a lot of people have to tell you this, but anyway! I just wanted to say it! One of the thing I love the most of your work are the background and composition. I mean, you style is awesome! but the change you do beetwen the cute and dark, and the composition of the images, love it! Just wanted to say that :) if you do comissions some day I sure ask you for something! Keep the awesome work!
hiho i was wondering what is the appeal in shipping? does not really appeal to me personally, i`m more ok if its "there" but i really don't get it if its between family members. do you just pretend they are not? i guess whatever floats your goat :P
it’s cute, fun, sexy, it’s different things to different people. i don’t know, it’s the same as anything i guess! i think you kinda answered your own question.
Just wanted to say that every time you post new art, it puts me in complete awe with your skills. You just keep getting better and better and deserve every bit of success you get. That is all. Carry on. ;-)
Hello Mr. Ross, I hope you're doing well. I was just wondering if you ship the TMNT together? I was just asking because I notice that some of the art that you've drawn of them looks intimate. Just curious~ <3
hi! i guess it depends on the version of TMNT, but i usually like Leo/Mikey. :)
THE COST FOR WOMEN IN COMICS OF DOING BUSINESS IS TOO HIGH.
You need to help lower the price of women doing business in comics and in comics fandom to only the hard work. Not the hard work plus ducking threats online and off of violence, dodging groping, inappropriate…
This may sound a bit stupid but is Malady's, from Wet Moon, name a pun or something? What got you the idea to use it? I'm curious.
in college i hung out with a friend whose cat was named Malady and i thought that was so cool. it was around the time i was putting together the first Wet Moon stuff so i named the character after the cat.
but the backstory reason is the character’s real name is actually Mallory and ‘Malady’ is what her little sister called her when they were kids because she couldn’t say Mallory. and then the nickname stuck and Malady kept using it because it also means disease (which is why she has a biohazard tattoo), which of course she thinks is awesome. i don’t know if i’ll ever get around to that in the comic, though.
As the comic book industry grows and is exposed to more and more people who are not typical superhero readers, I hope this behavior will be regarded for what it is: unprofessional nonsense, not to be tolerated by the industry. I hope publishers will come to expect a standard of behavior from the artists and writers they hire, and will not tolerate harassment and dismissal of women in the industry.
Comic book professionals, you are PROFESSIONALS. It’s time to start acting like it.
Hey, Brian. I'm an aspiring writer, and I have this complex about being a person of color trying to break into comics. I know I'm probably making a bigger deal out of this than I should, but it's kind of disheartening to see gatherings of creators and to notice the lack of color. Am I worrying for nothing? I tend to over analyze things, so this has been bugging me more than it probably should. I apologize in advance if this question is stupid, annoying, or has been asked before.
I am not a person of color but I am the father of a multiracial household and I’m Hypery aware of the world we live in in this regard. but I truly believe that there is nothing standing in your way of making your dreams as a creative person come true. It’s between you and your talent.
truthfully most of us don’t even know what each other looks like. all anybody cares about is the quality of each other’s work.
do not put things in front of you to stop yourself from making your dreams come true. do not. people do this all the time and I truly believe it’s the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.
stop rejecting yourself before the rejection comes. and if rejection comes, and it will, don’t make it about anything but your work.
When ever you draw, do you ever struggle to keep a characters appearance constant. Like the way you draw it and you can ever so slowly see it changing every time you look back on it. Or do you have trouble drawing a character in general? Otherwise I'm not sure whether its the art-style that's interfering when I draw or I'm just going backwards, I was wondering if that's a good thing maybe, because I like to keep my character appearance constant but I can't.
i definitely struggle! have you read any of my comics? my characters change from book to book and even sometimes within the same book, especially if i draw the pages in order. EDIT: sometimes i even deliberately do something inconsistent, like suddenly change a character’s eyes (as many of you will know XD) or i’ll suddenly not like a character’s nose and feel that a different nose would better suit them, and i just say fuck it and i change it. i’d rather have fun and do new stuff than keep doing the same thing just for consistency’s sake if i’m not into it anymore.
i personally think of it as moving forwards, though, not backwards. moving backwards is if the characters stay the same, because then it means you’re stagnating. i do have trouble drawing characters, though, different characters are easier than others but i don’t think it’s supposed to be easy.
i think people are over-obsessed with consistency, personally, i try to have a degree of consistency, of course, obviously i’d never draw a character one way in one panel and then with a deliberately completely different face or hair in the next panel, but overall i think you just need to let it happen and find a place you’re comfortable and satisfied, while accepting that time is a factor.
