There was a request last week for us to share our favorite Fantasy Races. Feel free to tell us your favorite and not so favorite races of fantasy people.
Here is a comic strip that I wanted to share with everyone. I hope you like it.
For today's share day let's talk fantasy creatures. What is your top five fantasy creatures? Do you have any that you down and out hate? My top five are almost equal in ranking, Dragons, Unicorns, Centaurs, Minotaurs, and Winged Horses. (I would have said Mermaid but to me they are more of a fantasy race then they are creature.) To set here and think about it there are not any that I would say that I hate. I guest I really like them all. So let's hear from you.
My new rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line with “no” warnings.
Today would be a good day to talk about who is hot and who is not, the the comic book world. Yes each and every comic book fan has one of these list, so don't act like you don't. The top two on the hot list for me are;
#1 Catwoman, not need to to say why, because I would be here typing all day(I would love to do that but I have plants waiting to be planted in the garden.). There is this one cover that she has a wedding dress on and it is ripped and you can see her custom under it, enough said if you ever saw that cover.
#2 Rogue, (Not the younger version) in the X-Men cartoon, who ever did her voice, WOW is all I can say.
My not hot list;
Some of the newer ways that they are drawing the cartoons and comics just turns me off to the characters on them. One example that comes to mind is the art on the newer G.I. Joe cartoon. I just don't like it.
Anyway enough of me. Let's hear what you have to say. Fell free to type as much as you like. Have at it and have fun.
Today's share day is for the Star Trek fans. (You don't have to be a fan to share) Here we go, I just read that there will be Klingons in the new Star Trek Movie. So today let's talk Klingon.(Not in Klingon, because most of you know I have a hard enough time with English) What do you really think happen to the Klingons of the original show? I think that they were genetically altered Klingons, made to look more human in order to infiltrate the Federation. As you know, it didn't work. They were then sent to another planet to live out their lives as outcast, because they failed. This planet was later destroyed to forever hide the truth. Sounds good to me, does anyone else have any idea what happen to them?
Time to share. What is your favorite Super Hero/Villain costume ever? Tell us what you like the most about it. Tell us why you believe it is the best.
I would have to say that the old blue and gray Batman costume with the black on yellow symbol would be mine. The yellow belt was alright too, but I must say that I do like the military style of belt better, because it is more realistic then the little tubes. I just don't think you could fit everything in those tubes, even if the stuff is designed to be compact. In the military, as a carpenter, and as a prison guard, I had to try to fit everything I needed into belts and it is not all that easy. The blue and gray costume said more about Batman to me, it did not give him the darker soul that the black one does. Yes he wants to scare the bad guys, but he also need to let the people he is helping know that he is there to help them and not hurt them. I believe that in the movie "Year One" some of that is covered. I also think he had a tighter grip on his life in the blue and gray costume. The black one takes away that grip and doesn't let him touch base with reality.
So let's hear what you have to say.
Today will be an open share day, so almost anything goes. Let's here what you have to say.
For today's share day I would like to set a topic. What Comic Book Hero did you want to be when you were a kid and why?
There was more than just one for me. Three easily come to mind, Batman, Green Arrow, and SGT. Rock.
1st.- Batman, what kid didn't want to be Batman? Here was this guy that had the money to buy and do anything that he wanted to, but he decided to fight crime instead. I wouldn't say we were dirt poor, but we were pretty dang close, so seeing someone with money wanting to help out was really cool. All of his weapons were not that too far fetched, and as a kid you can believe I tried to make a lot of them. He had the coolest car and other vehicles out there, heck I still would love to take a ride in the Bat Mobile. Then you had the pretty girls that hung around him. What little boy didn't have a crush on Bat Girl or Catwoman?
2nd.- Green Arrow, a lot of the same reasons I liked Batman for are the same for Green Arrow. But, he had a bow! Anytime I had a chance to make and shoot a bow you can sure enough bet I was doing so. One of my best presents ever as a kid was my J.C. Penny's practice bow that my mom gave me. And I can say that she never regreted it one bit, it got me outside and out of her hair. Yes I was very safe using it to. I even tried to make some of GA's trick arrows, most of which didn't work for me like they did for him.
3rd.- SGT. Rock, he was a great soldier fighting for his country, this was something that I knew I could grow up to be. The very first SGT. Rock cover I saw, wow I had to get that book. Here he was surrounded by the enemy and all he had to fight them with was an ammo belt from a machine gun, and he was kicking butt. When I was of age I did join the military and I made my way up in rank. I was proud to be able to serve my country, and I am still proud of my service and my country.
Okay, enough from me lets hear from you.
I came across a good topic last night for share day. J.J. Abrams could be the director of the new Star Wars films by Disney. Can he do both Star Wars and Star Trek? He is a very good director and I think he can pull it off, but some people are asking the question. That is in the same realm as actors playing more then one comic book character. It has been done, not always on a good note but it has been done. I would love to talk to him about an idea that I have had for years, it deals with a cross over of the three great "Stars", Star Wars, Star Trek, and Battlestar Galactica . I would love to see that one hit the big screen, but back to the question at hand. What do you think, can he pull it off? Some rumors are that the new Star Wars will start with an older Luke running a Jedi Academy, and others say that it will be a complete new set of characters. I forgot the name of the book I read a long time ago, but it was about Han and Leia's twin's adventures when they were at the academy. That would be a cool way to go. Let us know what you think.
Sunday Share Day is open topic, Use it to share your art, for open critique, to ask for help, share ideas, or just anything that comes to mind.
