I have a question for all of you out there. What would you like to see most on my Deviantart site? Art tutorials, fan art, Blackstone comic book art, digital paintings, etc. I am curious to know and it will help me carry this site in the right direction. So don't be shy, give me some insight into what you like and why!

Thanks as always for watching and talk at cha later!

Commision work is appreciated. I typically charge $75.00 to $100.00 for a splash page ( With lots of detail ) Probably about $75.00 for moderate detail. $25.00 for rough sketches and $100 to $125 for full color renderings. Send ideas and work reference to or just contact me through Deviant art. Thanks.

I have been an artist for my entire life. I have illustrated a few comic books and had some 3D animation on television but my main career has been as a sign and graphic artist in Burton, Mi. I own and operate RAM Studios. We have been in business for over 10 years now and are very succesful at creating large format graphics for our clients. I am trying to now focus more on my illustration work which is typically more science fiction based. I am currently working on self publishing my comic book character Blackstone Eternal. And, I also do off video on the topic of How to Draw Comics and Digital Painting on Youtube at so check it out if you like!

Do you have any links or videos of how to draw figures using shapes like squares and cones? I am trying to get my head around the body shapes and proportions and finding it hard. I have noticed though when I use the method of shapes it becomes easier. 

Joining limbs together seems to be my downfall. 

Also I watched your video today on superhero drawing and I realized I am one of the guilty ones drawing things in full then scrapping them as they fall short somewhere. 

I like the idea of sketching with stick lines but this also causes problems. 

Its all to learn I guess.

Have you tried this one?
Let me know if that helps. It just takes repetition to get the hang of it. Let me know if you have any more questions and I will do what I can. Thanks!

Thanks for getting back. Just watched your video on your studio, I like the fact you interact with the fans. 

Can I ask another question?

I have tried asking other people with little success, What is the size of paper I use to draw on to draw comics. It surely cannot be the comic size as I cant see me me getting the detail that small. 

Is it A4 A3? I plan on inking myself then scan into photoshop and colour. Its just the size of paper I cant get my head around. 

Are there any videos of you doing this process (using paper first)?

Thanks again.

The standard in the comic book industry is 11" x 17" with approximately a half inch margin on the sides and 3/4" on the top and bottom for the cut off in printing. You can download a template online. Just type in Blue Line Bristol Board for comics and it should come up. I may be wrong on the measurements so please double check. You draw at the larger size then it is shrunk down and cut for comics so knowing the margins is very important. When you go to a printer like they will actually provide you with a template to know all of the necessary measurements when laying out your book. Other than that, just order your paper from Blue Line Pro and you will be using what the pros use. Good luck and thanks for watching!
