Cornerstone Creative Studios at Digital Webbing

I'm looking at this thread and can't get over seeing the old name at the top of it... should I start a new thread or is there a way to alter the original subject line?

Until I get word back, here's a recent inks job I hope ya'll like.

Pencils: Joseph Arnold
Inks: me

Proudly brought to you by the Cornerstone Creative Studios

Thanks, especially since the right one is the inks, my part of the process.

Now, let me tell you WHY I love it.

The artist draws with tight lines. For the most part, the characters on display look really good. The primary thing that I dislike about it is the heavy resort by the artist to the chaarcter being so dark. This forces the hand of the inker.

But, the logo on the man looks good. The folds in the clothing yield a character that is not stiff looking. The muscles at the shoulder/neck, that's really the extent of my criticism with the art, itself.

The inking?

Well, the artists drew the lines, but this is an excellent example of how inking injects a piece of art with energy galore. The energy in this particular piece is traceable to three basic things:

(1) The curvature of the energy lines that dominate and form the background.

(2) The light touch of the inker's hand with those energy lines. You didn't blob it down, or lay it on thick. This leads directly to the third element.

(3) There's a lot of white left on this page in the background. And, because there is, the image gains a boost in the area of visual contrast across the piece as a whole. In a nutshell, the energy IS the white, not the black energy lines.

Ultimately, it yields a very good use of the white space.

And, the dragon?

Wow! Magnificent! The man is little more than visual eye fodder beside of this glorious beast.

The torso of the creature is brighter at the top, and darker at the bottom. This boosts the overall visual contrast. It also serves to better showcase the scales. This approach imbues them with depth, which in turn makes them come across to the reader/viewer as more realistic.

The claw is just scrumptious!

The tight lines of the artist really bring the dragon to life. The inking of the dragon give it its vigor, and serve as a presage of its fury to come.

WOW... I am truly humbled! If that was a rave critique, I don't know what was...

I appreciate the feedback and glowing words. I love what I do and love growing and continuing to learn as I work toward doing this for a full time living. That being said, thank you.

(Jesse thinks to himself, man... wish I could quote this feedback.... ) lol

almost to a certain goal.. still time to get your commission requests in at the HALF PRICE special rates folks... for those interested, here's my portfolio link outside of here... (mainly because had so many requests...)
I've been surprised at how many individuals are surprised at our normal rates from the studio member, stating that they thought they'd never be able to afford us. I'm flattered of course but also hoping to enlighten people that the CCS is about helping others achieve their dreams at the same time.

thanks... glad ya like... may go back in and drop a few more shadows and darks in before letting it go, but we'll see...

If you're interested or know anyone interested in this piece, by all means would love to find it a good home.

Also, I'll even sweeten the pot... IF someone is REFERRED to this and is the high bidder, the person that did the referring will get an additional 25% off any commission of their choice.

Call it an incentive program.

Cornerstone is on a distinguished road

Cornerstone Creative Studios is currently at a crossroads. We have many titles written and in the midst of production, but as many artists in our robust stable are currently working on outside titles, we are soliciting artistic talent to work on our in-house universe. This would require multiple releases for our first launch phase, with second wave titles currently being written. These stories focus on strong continuity and interaction between titles, but unlike others that just want to get other characters in their books the connections between titles have purpose and meaning, although each title firmly stands on its own as a separate and complete work.

First off, we offer three payment options for artists involved in artistic production. These are listed below and are contingent on your level of interest and ability in working with Cornerstone. We already have interested potential publisher agreements in place (we have several different ones already knocking on the door and we haven't even solicited yet, so that's a sign that we're on to something great).

1) Purely backend by way of crowdfunding campaign. Prior to launch, we would need at least six pages finished and ready for presentation. We would also need promotional pieces done and back awards for contributors that pledge for us to meet our goals.

2) A limited collaborative effort where we would work out a lower page rate but offer a percentage of sales from the books to more than make up for a lesser page rate.

3) A true contributed collaborative effort where pay would come from a percentage of sales of books, prints and promotional and marketing materials, including merchandising. A per page rate would also be discussed. This option is for aritsts who are interested in a longer-lasting relationship with Cornerstone. All interested parties who pick this option would have to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Additionally, all artists would have the option after a successful interview to become a member of Cornerstone Creative Studios. Studio members include Caanan White (Uber; Avatar Press), Paris Cullins (Blue Devil; DC Comics), Austin Janowsky (Invincible; Image Comics) and many, many others, so you would have unprecedented access to top industry talent. You would also have the opportunity to be repped by Cornerstone CEO Jesse Hansen, an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience and who has been published in over 35 comics from both major and indie publishers. Jesse regularly acquires freelance gigs and contracts for in-house studio members, and oftentimes artists have more work than they can handle - which is never a bad thing in this industry.

Go check out the talent we have in house already and working on our Facebook page [link: https://www.facebook.com/CornerstoneCreativeStudios] and you'll see that working with Cornerstone will put you among some great company.

If interested, shoot us your samples at submissions@cornerstonecreativestudios.com. Also please indicate which option you would be interested in going forward regarding payment. We look forward to hearing from you!
