Comic Underground

Mary Jane? by Sephirosu-nechan

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:
:star: Anything related to comics, including . . .

Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!

This Month's Character'
[May 2015]
Quicksilver by SavvyRed
[Pietro Maximoff]

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.

Am I Missing?

I know that it seems like I've been neglecting my groups, my posts,  my artwork, and probably a lot of things on deviantART.  For several months, I've been working on a secret project for my group Disney Heroines, and I'm still not finished.  I am trying to keep up with accepting submissions on Love Sees No Gender and Comic Underground, and other admins in Comic Underground have been helping me in that group.  Love Sees No Gender is lead by only me, but it doesn't have as many submissions.  It's also very lenient on what is acceptable.

As far as Disney Heroines goes, it might seem like I haven't been accepting submissions fast enough, but actually I really have.  Though I want to keep the actual secret project ... well  .. secret, I can say that it will affect accepting submissions (but in a good way!  Trust me, you'll love it.).  Also, I am going to be adding new folders for new heroines in the near future, so I can't accept those characters now.  I will though.  Don't be completely discouraged if your submission expires, but if it does, make sure it follows the rules and is submitted to the correct folder because the way the project will affect the gallery is forcing me to only accept work that is placed in the wrong folder.  If you ask  me about it, I will tell you.  However, the future changes in the group and time constraints prevent me temporarily doing what I usually do, which is reply to every declined submission and put acceptable submissions in the right folders.

Also, I would like to ask that people not ask me about what's going on in my life right now.  I am very happy at the moment, but it takes a long time to write journals and long replies.  I also trying not to put my personal life too much in the groups because I feel that they are about you all and not me.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Good News and GOOD NEWS!

So, I know I said that I might not have time for deviantART because of staying in a hotel.  Well, I checked into the hotel, and they have free Wi-Fi for the whole time I'm staying here!  I also didn't bring that much stuff, so there's not much to unpack.  I have some time today and probably tomorrow.  I will see if I'm not too tired.  But I will have WI-FI and not have to take a break!  Things are going well so far, and my roommate is nice.  I've always wanted to live in a hotel room, and even though it's probably only temporary, it's pretty damn awesome.  Plus the apartment complex where I'll be living in the future is brand new and even has a little gym where I could use the treadmill.  YAY!!!

Hi :) It seems that the new 'comic series, pages, covers and posters' was never opened? Or is it closed for submissions on purpose? 
SavvyRed Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015  Student Writer
Really?  I've seen people adding to it.  The old one that was Comics Strips, etc. etc. is full most of the time.  Sometimes it has a little more room for some reason.  I guess some people remove their work.  I haven't officially closed it because it doesn't bother me if more people put stuff in it.  The other folder Comic Series, Pages, Covers, and Posters should be open.  I've seen people add to it.  Let me know if it still doesn't work.

There's no '+' when you see the preview of the folder in the gallery, and no 'contribute to this folder' if you open it. It's also not visible in the list. Maybe only admins can add to it?
SavvyRed Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2015  Student Writer
I don't think so.  I've gotten a lot of submissions to that folder, but I will try again when I have some spare time.  Thanks for pointing it out.

I tried putting some submissions through on that subpage, but it wasn't working for some reason, so I'd figure that was what happened. I'll try to check it out and see if I can get it opened. Thanks for pointing it out to me.
