2011 Challenger: Yannick Morin

| October 25, 2011 | 0 Comments

I'm NOT Batman. Don't let the looks fool ya.Hey gang!

My name’s Yannick Morin and this is my first attempt at the 30 Characters Challenge. I’m a thirty-something dad from beautiful Quebec City where I spend my days as a mild-mannered communications consultant. When the sun goes down however, I become a wholly different dashing figure: an aspiring comic writer, forging words into entertaining plots and fighting the forces of apathy wherever they might pop up (usually around my desk).

Of course, as writing is my specialty, I’m not expecting to wow anyone with my drawing ability. In fact, apart from thumbnailing some of my pages – just to get a feel for the graphic flow of a story – I haven’t drawn much since back when I was in college. Oh sure, I leave the occasional sketch on coworkers’ whiteboards, but that’s just subversive artistic guerilla so it doesn’t count. I really don’t know yet how my attempts will turn out. I might try a lot of different techniques to see what I’m comfortable with. We’ll just call it “eclectic” – it’ll make a nice blurb for the dust jacket someday.

The 30 Characters Challenge came to my attention because I’ve become somewhat of a regular on Tyler’s website ComixTribe. He’d go on and on and on about it so I thought: “Hey, why not try it out?” Besides, since I’m a chronic procrastinator, any excuse is a good one for getting me off my butt and doing something comicky.

Just for laughs, let’s have a look at these 10-year old drawings I just scanned. Ha! Look at that guy’s hand! Hilarious!

Some guy. In a mask.Was I trying to draw a pirate?I think this guy might be a wizard. I have no idea.

Hello everyone. I am a Graphic Designer by day practicing my skills at illustration by night. I am also very excited to be participating in the 30 Characters Challenge for the second time. Can’t wait to see a pool of creative talents displaying their work. Hope to have as much fund this year as I did last years 30 character Challenge.

2011 Challenger: David Emerson

Hello! I’m David, and I’m currently an aspiring artist (and, um, full time accounting student?) living in San Diego. When I’m not buried under my classwork I spend a lot of time playing video games, reading about history, and working on my webcomic: Underling. I also have a DeviantART that I never update. I hope to work myself hard and get a lot out of fun designs out of this challenge.

This is my first stab at the 30 character challenge, and I don’t have enough free time as it is, so this challenge should be pretty fun!

I don’t have any character design sketches handy, so here’s the cover page of the latest chapter of my comic!

2011 Challenger: Robin White

Hi everyone. My name is Robin White, and I’m Canadian but  currently live in Japan. I do a webcomic called Doodze, which I like to describe as a cross between Smurfs and Lord of the Rings, in a setting that appears be ancient Japan.  I also have a site called SkitZo MaN dot CoM, which is mainly a sketch blog, and where I’ll be posting my character designs in addition to here.  I’ll probably create some new characters for Doodze, but am interesting in exploring some new ideas through this challenge as well.

I’m stoked to be a part of the challenge this year!  It’s my first time. Please be gentle.

I’ll leave you with a recent page from my comic, as a preview of my work:

 Oh my! I heard about this challenge from a friend and decided to give it a shot. I am a fan of character development and am really into creative processes.

I studied illustration and am just making a bunch of pictures lately to see what comes out of it.
