Deep in beneath the surface of deviantART lies the heart of comics creation. At the Comic Underground, we strive to bring quality comics to the attention of deviants everywhere. We accept whatever path you choose to follow, whether you create Death Note manga, make detailed drawings of Marvel superheroes, or simply doodle incriminating four panel slides of your boss as an angry badger in your spare time. We are not elitist, and we gladly welcome new comic artists. If you like contests, challenges, features, and surprises, join the Underground today! I guarantee you will not have to take a British subway.

The types of art that we accept are:

Contests!

Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!

This Month's Character

Professor X
[Professor Charles Xavier]

Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, we choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.

All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest; however, please enter all submissions into the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. It takes many hours to filter through the entire gallery, so please enter your work in the right folder so that we can post the feature quicker!

The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section. Everyone who submitted work will have their work in a group feature.

barbara gordon se quita la mascara
[English Translation: barbara gordon takes off the mask]

kaskajo is a pencil-and-paper artist who hails from Spain. He has been a deviantART member for two years and has quite an expansive gallery. His main subject is the female form, specifically those of Marvel and DC comics. You can really see his talent develop and grow through each drawing. If you have a soft spot for the heroines and villainesses of the comic book world, make sure you take a peek at his gallery! here.

... [about Artist Spotlight]

From time to time, we select one member to feature in this section. We include a selection of their work and a short description of them and their artistic style. They will also receive 10 deviant points and one work permanently displayed in the Featured section of our gallery!

DO NOT ASK TO BE FEATURED. If you do, we will not feature you. We choose an artist from the group based mostly on talent. Group activity is also a secondary factor.

A new artist will be chosen at random times.

I just wanted to let people know that the due date of every Comic Character of the Month is during the beginning of the month, not the first day.  So if you want to submit to the group, don't be afraid to submit it if it's a few days late.  Don't worry about being late; if you need extra time, I'll always help you out!

If you wondering what the Comic Character of the Month contest is, here's a little introduction:


Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, I choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.  All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest, but I'd prefer that submissions be put in the Comic Character of the Month gallery.  The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section.  Everyone who submitted work will have their work in the group feature (which is this!)

As a female clone of Wolverine, X-23 is not only a good choice for fictional villainous experiments but also a good socioanalytical experiment to see the differences between male characters and female characters in mainstream comic books.  Wolverine is the epitome of society's idea of masculinity.  He has a terrible temper, a rebellious attitude, physical strength, is a weapon in human form, muscles like a gallon of steroids, animal instincts, high sex drive, is a bad boy, hates authority, and has more body hair than an actual wolverine.  X-23 does have some similar traits.  She also has a bad temper, rebellious tendencies, strength, animal instincts, is a bad girl, and hates authority.  However, one of the most important ingredients that casts Wolverine as the most "macho" X-men character is his body type.  He is ridiculously muscular, probably only second to the Incredible Hulk or perhaps every male character in Dragon Ball Z.  Laura Kinney has the body of a supermodel, the strength of Conan the Barbarian, the face of a Victoria's Secret angel, and not single hair on her body except the long, salon style locks on her head.  She looks nothing like Wolverine.  Women in comic books are allowed to be super strong, but they must be either thin or fat, never muscular.  It is very rare that any other character other than She-Hulk has a untypical female form.  Even female characters who are created to be hideous are usually petite while their male counterparts look like mutated body builders.

There are other details that show the differences between female and male characters.  While Wolverine's temper is sometimes considered helpful, particularly in combat, X-23's anger is a menace that she can't control.  In many societies, women are not supposed to express pain in the form of rage.  Angry women are seen as dangerous, crazy, unstable, and sometimes evil.  It is no surprise that X-23 is usually depicted as a teenage girl, the age group and gender that is considered most wild and out-of-control.  She resembles the character of Alice in the popular PC game American McGee's Alice and its sequel American McGee's Alice: Madness Returns, a pubescent girl whose wrathful expression of emotional turmoil makes her dangerous and insane.

Anger and strength aren't a "man's" thing.  That's just what The Man wants you to think. ;)



Now that you've read all that, ON TO THE FEATURE!

NEXT MONTH'S CHARACTER

I'm back! Plus X-23 is the CCoM!

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 25, 2014, 1:32 PM




Hey guys!  How are you?  I'm back from the cruise to the Bahamas!


I also wanted to remind you all that X-23 is the Comic Character of the Month.  We're still taking submissions in the Comic Character of the Month folder.


If you don't know what the Comic Character of the Month is, here is an explanation:


Comic Underground hosts a special contest called The Comic Character of the Month contest. Every month, we choose a comic book character, and people submit artwork based on that character.  All artwork in the Comic Underground Gallery based on that character is automatically included in contest; however, please enter all submissions into the Comic Character of the Month gallery folder. It takes many hours to filter through the entire gallery, so please enter your work in the right folder so that we can post the feature quicker!

The winner gets 10 deviantART points, a permanent place for their winning work in the Featured section. Everyone who submitted work will have their work in a group feature!  Awesome, right? :D

There are still a few days before the contest deadline.  I usually can't make the feature on the first day of the month, so there is definitely flexibility. :)  However, don't wait too long because I always finish it within the first week unless there is an emergency or under too much stress in my personal life.

Hope you're guys are doing great! :)
