Interview with FlipflopperyThe project of featuring comic artists is back!
Welcome here and let me introduce you, Flipfloppery, who is a really talented artist with an amazing and interesting comic called, Awaken.
♣ Let's start simple. Please, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hey! I'm Koti Saavedra, aka Flipfloppery on the internet, I'm 27 and I'm from Chile. I graduated from animation some years ago and I was working as an animator in a studio I co-founded until recently, but right now I'm in the process of making my webcomic Awaken my full time job. I like creating stories and characters the most, so I'm aiming to do that for a living.

if you want to stop hurting:i. i have swallowed down this 3am love
like the ibuprofen i fed myself for my
swollen ankle that time in spain
when i pushed a little too hard and
let go for a little too long.
i have swallowed you down so many
times before, kept you like little embers
in the crevices of my chest, burning
holes through tissue and bone and
everything that i am - through everything
that i swore i wasn't.
ii. a few months ago,
i learnt that it's easier to breathe
with your throat open, to take it
down and let go gracefully,
like opening your palms against
the wind outside the car and inhaling
through your nose.
iii. if you want to stop hurting:
listen to them speak but do not hear their words, hear only their voice,
feel it reverberate against your spine and tell yourself -
this isn't a bad thing.
rebuild your body like jenga blocks. if somebody comes close,
hold their hand and tell them -
i trust you.
let the air rush between your fingers,
let the fire in your arteries sizzle aw
Shackles Falling (008)When the dandelions spread--
a yellow disease
across the brown lawn--
and thick ivy arms crept
down halls layered with dust,
we knew it was time to go.
a pair of memories
fate wanted lost--
the echoes of ghosts
as the city cheered
the building to brick dust
and empty foundations.
The start of a new month,
the shackles of your eyes
portals to a future without fur.
As the sun danced acrobatics
across the backs of our fading hands,
a grin free of fangs,
a boy once again--
plucked me one more weed
to wear in the clean braid
of my hair
as we skipped out on the moon.
Can't you hear the music? The light fell like raindrops, hitting my bare skin as I danced to the fiery music that surrounded me. Despite their glowing appearance, they were cool and liquid, running down my body like tiny rivers of sunlight. My companions and I saw the woman at the same time, and there was no hesitation. I caught her attention, swaying to the music.
“What are you doing?” the woman asked, her hair falling down her back like a waterfall of silver moonlight. She was beautiful, but tamed. The wild light inside her battled to be free, to dance with us.
“Dancing,” I replied. “Can’t you hear the music?”
The woman looked confused. “Are you alright?” she asked, edging backwards. The shadows danced around her, trying to draw her into the dance.
“I’m wonderful. Won’t you dance with us?”
She shook her head, afraid, and the shadows pounced. I danced close
Ancient Egyptian Art and MythologyAuthor's Note
Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)
Note that dates aren't terribly important just make sure you are in the right century
What you really need to know
The entire period of Ancient Egypt lasted from 3500 BCE to 1070 BCE and was broken into four periods: the Predynastic and early dynastic periods (which we are
Artisan Craft and Copyright LawArtisan Craft and Copyright Law
As a Community Volunteer I spend a lot of time pouring through the Artisan Crafts galleries looking for art that deserves a bigger audience. I dig through every little hidden corner of the galleries looking at every type of craft, made by everyone from the most watched members to the day old newbies. And every time I do this, I have to double check it all for originality.
My time doing this had shed light on a massive problem inherent in the AC galleries: copyright violation
Now, I'm not talking about the obvious I-stole-your-picture-and-uploaded-it violations. I'm talking about something much more subtle, to the point it feels like most of the perpetrators don't actually realise they're doing it. I'm often about to give someone a DD, until I read their description and find it completely devoid of credit. Rather than getting a site-wide feature, these artists end up on my blacklist instead. It all boils dow
Using Colloquialisms: Are you down with it? Colloqualism: You down with it?
A word or phrase that is not formal or literary and is used in ordinary or familiar conversation. synonyms: slang, idioms, patois, dialect.
Examples: whatcha, gotta, face on, ovver.
I’m sure you’ve had a good telling off by your teachers for using colloquial language inappropriately in your writing. I’ve had essays returned with the word “too informal” scrawled along the margin or a big red exclamation mark next to a certain word, who hasn’t? What just me? Oh right… my bad!
So WHY would we use colloquial language in our writing, after years of tackling the angry red pen?
I know we’re not supposed to judge a book by its over – or a person by their accent – but it happens. You can tell us a lot about a character by the kind of language they use. Are they all gangsta, dropping hooded verbs
PE: ARTIST TOOLBOX: Water-based Media!Waterbased Media!
I love water-based media! What is “waterbased media” you say? Well that would be any kind of water-soluble ink or paint! There are many advantages to working with water-based media, the main one being that many water-based paints and inks are not extremely dangerous to work with (in comparison to oils which are not good to get on your hands people…wear gloves!), there is no need for special clean up or a specific work environment (on that note, please PLEASE do not paint with oils in your living room). Another advantage to working with water-based media is quick drying times. This is a pro especially if you do illustrative works. A third pro to water-based media is that they are somewhat cost effective for us starving artists. Here are some types of water-based media: watercolor, ink, latex paint, and acrylic paint. My favorite type of water-based media is watercolor. Tip: you don’t need t

----CATEGORY 1---- Design me a character based on Daryl Dixon
I want one design based on Daryl Dixon (The Walking Dead, Season 4, please). I want him like a wolf or something like that, I accept original species (I prefer something like wolf).
He must have his vest with the wings and the red hanky (hanging vest or around begining the tail), the crossbow is optional ^^
He must be solitary, sure of himself (but never cocky and selfish), he doesn't know to show his feelings, but he's good and protects those who he loves.
Please, make his eyes with the same color than the original, I LOVE tha
