Formerly known as Wonder Woman Day, (I guess they changed it to make it inclusive for all super heroines) this charity event raises money for Domestic Violence programs. A very worthy cause.
Many artists (like Alex Ross and Adam Hughes) and celebrities donate pieces for the charity auction. I've been wanting to donate a piece for a while and finally gotten around doing it this year.
The reason why I didn't do it previously is because they don't accept all digital works, and frankly I didn't think my traditional skills were up to par (can't ctrl-z markers and ink).
This year though, I've practiced, and donated a marker illustration piece. I also did a digital color print piece (so it's a two-fer). More bang for the buck, right?

According to this site, 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency. Based on the Farnsworth Munsell Hue test, it's not quite the same as a color blindness test. It tests your acuity to detect subtle hue changes. I scored a perfect. Woo!

I don't know if it's entirely accurate but it was interesting and raised questions I never even considered about my characters. The test looks long but it goes pretty quickly.
The Universal Mary Sue Litmus Test
Try it out.

This is actually my second YouTube video upload, but it’s the first one I’ve done that has me sketching. Be warned... it's 15 minutes long and the video got cut off due to my not knowing the YouTube time limit. I’ll try to upload a new video every week and hopefully I'll get better at this video routine.

If you've seen an episode of Justice League or Ben 10, you've seen his work. He was a brilliant writer.
A native of Detroit, McDuffie officially joined the comics industry as part of Marvel Comics editorial in the late '80s. While working on special projects for the publisher, he quickly made his name as a writer creating series such as "Damage Control" and helping to redefine the Deathlok character to fan and critical acclaim. He soon left the staff to become a full time freelance writer, becoming a voice in the industry for diversity, particularly fighting against stereotypical portrayals of people of color on the comic book page.
In 1993, McDuffie co-founded Milestone Media along with creators Denys Cowan, Michael Davis and Derek T. Dingle. The company's mission statement involved expanding the role of minorities in comics both on the page and off, and they launched (through DC Comics) a line of superheroes that included "Static," "Icon" and Xombi" – all of which McDuffie had a hand in creating.
Maddy from When Fangirls Attack has a comprehensive list of links about McDuffie's passing. Check it out.

Comic artist Nina Matsumoto put up a series of photos by Howard Schartz and Beverly Ornstein titled “The Athlete” on her blog. It's great reference and very interesting to see the large variations of body types between the different athletes. Very handy and I highly recommend taking a look.
