♦ Last week, we finally got to see what a Platypus Robot looks like. I have to say that I agree with the choice of winning entry. And back in early June, GoMediazine pointed out The Brads, which looks fun. More up to date, Are You A Serious Comic Book Reader looked at Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard and was impressed by one story in particular.
♦ Curls Studio is looking for you, if you are a graphic designer or art director and cartoon on the side. There’s a project that needs you. Benito Cereno is also looking for an artist to collaborate with.
♦ Xerxes briefly covered a comic called Folly and Innovation plus had lots of other webcomics news that you should check out if you haven’t been to his site in a while. You might be missing out on some cool webcomic stuff. Ghetto Manga reviewed the Missile Mouse Hardcover and Webcomic Overlook reviewed Bottle of Awesome.
♦ Concept Art has some interesting classes beginning July 1st, in case anyone is interested.
♦ This comic is called Epic Fail and if you like long-term fantasy stories, you will probably like this comic. It is rated Web-14, though it mostly implies rather than shows or dwells on anything. Part of the reason I mention Epic Fail is the dramatic improvement of the art when shading is applied – it fits the tone of the comic much better, IMHO. See the next image?
