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.

Contests!

Comic Character of the Month: Recurring CONTEST!

This Month's Character

Ms. Marvel
[Carol Danvers, Sharon Ventura, Karla Sofen, Kamala Khan]

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.

We now choose the same character for TWO months in a row with two separate winners and features. (Part One and Part Two).

Artist Spotlight

Artist Spotlight

:iconkaskajo:

kaskajo

barbara gordon se quita la mascara by kaskajo

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.

Ms. Marvel - Submit for Feature Part 2

       The Comic Book Character of the Month

                     June and July 2014                          




I've noticed that the Ms. Marvel submissions have been rather low.  Because we have changed the rules to have a character for two months in a role, Ms. Marvel is still the Comic Character of the Month for June and July!  You still have time!  (Deadline is early August, depending on my schedule.  I'm usually too busy to finish the feature on the 1st, so you might have a little bit of leeway).
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.

News


Hey guys!  This is SavvyRed here!  SoleilStarr just posted a  general blog entry about some of our submission changes.  Well, you may want to know about what we mean exactly.

:star: CASTING PICTURES :star:

We are NOT accepting casting pictures anymore.  A casting picture is when you post a picture of a character next to a photograph of a celebrity you feel should play the role in a movie.

For example, if you wanted Johnny Depp to play the part of Ghost Rider, the casting picture would have a comic book version of Ghost Rider next to a real photograph of of the actor Johnny Depp.  It might look something like this:



The reason why we are no longer accepting these works is because they usually contain two copyrighted pictures in them that the submitter did not make.  This is not just our rule; deviantART does not allow members to use copyrighted images that don't belong to them nor have permission to use.  Please make sure that you follow all of deviantART's rules when submitting artwork.  Here is a link to deviantART's official copyright policy: Click Here.  We will be in removing any examples of casting photos in the gallery.

:star: ADULT CONTENT :star:

We do NOT allow adult content into the gallery.  If you want to submit adult content, please submit it to the Adult Content folder in the Favorites section.  Blatantly sexist, cissexist, racist, anti-Semitic,  homophobic, etc. or any prejudice material is NOT allowed whatsoever.

This might be confusing, so I'm going to say what is considered Adult Content.  It might sound a bit arbitrary, but it actually has helped keep the gallery from turning into a porn site.

- Nudity
----> No uncovered genitalia or pubic area, whether it is male, female, or other genders.  No uncovered female nipples.  I hate having to say no female nipples because it seems both sexist and cissexist.  In my opinion, there are more than two genders, and women should be equal to men.  However, I had to instate this rule after many misogynist submissions kept crowding the gallery, and many members were getting tired of seeing pornography in their watch messages.

:star: FEATURED SECTION :star:

Only ONE work per member is allowed in the Featured section (except for contest winners).  Please do NOT submit more than one work to the Featured section.

I used to allow all work submitted to the Featured section to stay there, but then the folder became huge and lost the idea of displaying special and noteworthy art.  So this is my system now:

If you want to submit something to the Featured section, you are allowed.  We allow ONE and only ONE work per member in the section, but we do NOT promise that any of your work will remain in the section (except the winning works of contests).  If you submit more than one work to the Featured section, we will choose one of your submissions and move the rest to the appropriate folders.  However, we would like to ask you to only pick one of your best works and send it there.

:star: ORIGINAL CHARACTERS :star:

The Original Characters folder is for, well, original characters.  Original characters (also known as OC's) are fictional characters created by a person or people who are fans, amateurs, or otherwise nonpublished.  For example, if you wanted to submit a drawing of an X-men character that you made up named Angela "Foursquare" Fitzpatrick, then that would count as an OC.  But if you wanted to submit a drawing of Wolverine from X-men, you would have to submit that to the Marvel Comics folder.  OC's don't have to be ones that you created, but they do have to be unpublished.  If you or someone else are a professional artist and have published a fictional character into a work, you can put that in one of the older folders.

NOTE: Original comic strips that you have made belong in the Comic Strips folder, and original comic pages, series, covers, etc. that you have made yourself belong in Comic Series, Pages, Covers, and Posters.

:star: INDEPENDENT COMICS :star:

The Independent Comics folder is intended for art based on published comic book art that are not Marvel or DCThis does NOT include original characters (OC's) or original comics.

Independent Comics includes art about non-mainstream comics like Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Valiant Comics, etc.  OC's go to the Original Characters folder.  Comics strips that you have made yourself should go to the Comic Strips folder.  Original comic pages, series, covers, etc. that you have made yourself belong in Comic Series, Pages, Covers, and Posters.

:star: FANART :star:

The fanart aspect of the Fanart and Memes folder is for fanart that doesn't fit in the other categories.

- FANART
---> TV shows, Movies, Books, Actors, Singers, Musicals, etc.
x- Examples: Doctor Who, Harry Potter series, Star Wars, Star Trek, Robocop, Tarzan, etc.
x- Must NOT be related to comic books, comic strips, cartoons, manga, anime, memes, or original characters.


That's all I can think of for now.  Thanks to everyone for being patient, and thanks to Soleil for helping out! :D
