KICKSTARTER SPOTLIGHT: Bart Sears' Drawing Powerful Heroes: Brutes and Babes V2

The second volume in Bart Sears’ Drawing Powerful Heroes series of definitive, how-to-draw books by Bart Sears has arrived. This second volume will be a massive, 144-page oversized hardcover, and continue one of the best how-to-draw series ever published. Completely written and edited by Bart Sears, this edition will be perfect for beginners and more advanced artists alike, as well as anyone interested in the art of and creative reasoning behind drawing powerful comics.




Acclaimed comic artist Bart Sears taught an entire generation to draw with his Brutes and Babes column in Wizard Magazine, which was the bible of the comics industry for a decade. In the pages of Wizard, Bart presented dozens of drawing and storytelling tutorials, providing an expansive education in comic art and illustration.



Through this Kickstarter, and with your help, Bart is continuing his collection of those beloved drawing tutorials. Each of the classic Brutes and Babes lessons have been expanded, updated, and revised, as well as redesigned to make for a much more satisfying reader experience. These expanded tutorials delve into anatomy, storytelling, character design, style, details, basic drawing and much more.


As in Volume 1, Bart has written and drawn five completely new lessons for this new volume. These new lessons take an in-depth, Brutes and Babes-style look at male proportion, anatomy, faces, and character design.

As part of this project, we are offering the oversized Blue-Line Drawing Guide, featuring dozens of structural drawings by Bart Sears, printed in non-photo blue on a drawing-quality paper, that you can draw right over, right on the page! Draw your own bubble muscles, develop your own finishing style, even ink right in the pages of this book! This 48-page volume is an incredible learning tool, allowing you to study structure as you learn to finish over perfectly-structured figures designed by Bart Sears!

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

TV REVIEW: Jonathan Frakes Directs as Charlize Theron Visits ‘The Orville’

The Orville crew comes to the aid of a stranded mining vessel stuck in the orbit of a star. They save the captain of the ship, Pria (guest star Charlize Theron), and soon Ed Mercer (Seth McFarlane) is making "googly-eyes" at her to the chagrin of a very suspicious first officer Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki).


 It's only right that a show that borrows so much from Star Trek would have Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Jonathan Frakes direct this episode. He does a stellar job as the episode named "Pria" takes the audience to new areas of the ship, an impressive FX-heavy dark matter field, and an amusing subplot involving Helmsman Gordon Malloy (Scott Grimes) teaching Issac (Mark Jackson) the how practical jokes work. The mysterious stranger turned love interest with ulterior motives proving a suspicious (and possibly jealous) ex correct makes this story predictable but it's still massively fun with Oscar-winner Theron shaking things up on board.
