The Line it is Drawn #170 – Happy Holidays from the Line it is Drawn!
Welcome to our weekly gallery of amazing art by our great collection of artistic talent, all working from YOUR suggestions!
Go follow Comics Should Be Good on Twitter (if you have Twitter, that is – if you don’t, you can go sign up). Here is our Twitter page… http://twitter.com/csbg. And here are the Comics Should Be Good writers who are on Twitter (the links go to the person’s Twitter account) – myself, Greg Hatcher, Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Bill Reed, Greg Burgas, Sonia Harris, Melissa K. and Ken H.
I update the blog’s Twitter account updates whenever a new post is put up on the blog, so it’s an easy way to keep up with the blog. In addition, I post new content on the blog’s Twitter account.
Now on to the bit!
So every week, I ask a question here. You reply to it on our Twitter page (just write @csbg with your reply) and our blog sketch artists will each pick one of your suggestions and I will post them here every week. So every week you will have a new question and you will see the choices picked from the previous week. Here is an archive of all the previous editions of The Line It Is Drawn!
To qualify, you have to be following us when you reply – so go follow us and then give your answer to the following question/challenge (All suggestions due by 3pm Pacific Friday).
I’m giving the artists the rest of 2013 off, so we’ll pick up again in 2014. So your suggestions will be for the topic in TWO weeks.
The topic is…
Based on a suggestion by twitter followers Ted and Lisa Dahlman, we’re doing a twist on dream casting for a superhero movie. Now, instead, pick a comic book team or character and a YEAR and our artists would have to come up with dream casting for that character/team for that particular year. To wit, who would be the dream casting for Wolverine in the year 1939? 1957? 1968? 1985? 1992? You get the picture.
Read on for the sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!
It’s the Line it is Drawn’s annual Holiday Special! So suggest comic book characters for drawings inspired by Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, what have you!
I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.
