iCAF vol. XIX - artofalinea
Welcome to another edition of iCAF: Independent Comic Artists Features
We are all artists, and as such, it is of our interest to get noticed and our work to be seen. This series of articles have the intention of giving promotion to independent artists, focusing on comic creators, cartoonists, illustrators, animators, etc. It is open for all, so if you have any suggestion of who you think should be featured or you want to participate (yes! you can suggest yourself!) make me happy and drop me a note! ;)
In this issue, we are featuring:  artofalinea :iconartofalinea:
My name is Paolo Alinea, also known artofalinea here on DA ~ friends on this site call me either by my real name or "Arto"...whichever works I guess haha!

I've been drawing ever since I was a kid, but only started taking it seriously when I was introduced to comics, particularly Gen1

Pitching Comics: A Twitter Q and A with Rob Levin
Rob Levin http://twitter.com/roblevin did a twitter Q&A about pitching comic book ideas to editors. I pasted it here, hoping that it may answer questions some of you have about getting published.
Ericcalderon: Who's buying these days? :)
Rob Levin: It's always important ericcalderon, to check with each publisher to find out their submission policies. Some take unsolicited ideas such as imagecomics, others won't accept new talent or ideas. It's usually easier to break in at a smaller company doing original IP.
Ian_Austin: is thinking outside the box in how you present your idea welcomed?
Rob Levin: Yes, ian_Austin, original presentation can make a difference. However, story must come first. Presentation is a tool, not a substitute.
ChrisMLawson: When is a good time/place for an unknown to pitch to an editor? Is it cool to ask them if they're open to a pitch at a convention?
Rob Levin: The best way, @ChrisMLawson, is to meet an editor at a con. Introduce yourself,

I spend about 80% of my time making comics.
Interests
  • Listening to: Somersault by Zero 7 on When it Falls
  • Drinking: Very potent Earl Grey Tea
Has it really been four years since I joined dA? Yes, yes it has. Goodness time flies doesn't it?
Yeah.

For me, I'm spending summer between a couple of relatives' places. Trying to get as much work on Stymie done as possible. I intended to write a journal recapping and reviewing everything I learned from last semester at school, but it's been awhile since that happened. Can't recall enough of it that I could write anything intelligent about it. So perhaps I'll just say a few things here anyways.

I still intend on doing Dingo at some point. I'm hoping to get my hands on a book the talks about MI6 and read that so I can have a better grasp at historical context. I'm also changing a lot of things, hopefully to make it more concrete. Still have to figure out how to style it, and I might do it with line-work or line-less. I think they somehow take almost the same amount of time. Ink stage versus flatting stage or something like that.

I think what Stymie might have over what Dingo had is it's more inspired. Admittedly, when I first did Dingo, not only did it only lack direction ALOT, but the characters were heavily referential. Not necessarily I bad thing, but the characters in Stymie are more of their own nature. I have a little bit of reference for Wes' character, but the rest just are. It makes them seem a little more authentic to me.

Remind me to make a review of the things I learn from Stymie. Admittedly, its been quite alot.

Cheerio dA folks.
