All About Archie / Re: learn to draw archie and friends?!?!?!?
« on: February 23, 2015, 07:56:12 PM »

I would recommend to anyone who wants to seriously learn to draw Archie the following advice: study anatomy and learn to draw from real life. Something tells me that Fernando Ruiz didn't take a specific "draw Archie" class when he attended the Joe Kubert school.

Absolutely, HarryLuceyFan... although not to take away from your point, I did sort of take an Archie class at the Kubert School.

One of my instructors in my third and final year was the great Hy Eisman. Hy is a real diverse workhorse whose long-spanning varied career included drawing The Katzenjammer Kids, Little Iodine, Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Popeye... and Archie! Hy gave my class a genuine Archie script to draw. I'd been an Archie fan as a kid so I enthusiastically jumped into this project. When I showed Hy my pages, he was less than enthused with what I did. He took me aside, threw tracing paper over my pages and showed me specifically where I was going wrong. I went back and re-did my pages completely. The next time I showed Hy my pages, he took a look at them and said, "Hey! This looks pretty good. You should show them to Archie when they come to the school."  A short time later, Victor Gorelick and Dan DeCarlo visited the school and I did just that.  Luckily Victor agreed with Hy's assessment and hired me right away. I graduated and started drawing my first Archie story!

A year later, I went back to the school as an instructor. Hy is still teaching there and we have lunch  in the Faculty Room every Wednesday! He still draws The Katzenjammer Kids and Popeye! A great guy to whom I will be forever indebted.

Thanks so much for sharing this, Fernando! It's a great story :)

I've got these comics somewhere. If I can find them, I'll scan and post some samples.

There are 2 votes available per user, so feel free to choose 2 different decades.
NOW you tell me...  ;D

That's odd... I thought I told you nearly three years ago! ;)

I don't think there's ever been a learn to draw Archie book published in the past. The "cover" you posted was printed as a single page attraction in the comics - it's not actually a cover to anything (to the best of my knowledge!)

I called in sick for work today... and I will again tomorrow! Going to Syracuse to get some Christmas shopping done, and I'm hoping that the snow isn't like what I've seen in Buffalo on the news! It's like Canada and the US have done a flip-flop with the weather...

Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I've done much posting here, but I've been checking in on a regular basis. Anyhow, my girlfriend and I recently broke up and I thought I'd share this artwork I created for her with you guys. It would be nice if someone appreciated it since she doesn't :P

I don't usually draw with vector graphics, but somehow I managed to to this.

I have to say Harry Lucey... but I really like Schwartz, DeCarlo and Montana.

I wouldn't date any 'cause I'm already dating someone awesome.   :smitten:   :P

What a romantic!

Sherlock Hound is Miyazaki's version of it, tying back to the Castle of Cagliostro reference.

Well, it is Sherlock Holmes.  I'm surprised he didn't have sex with Watson in the last Downey Jr. movie.  lol

Didn't you watch the deleted scenes? ;)

Other Media / Re: Archie Hot Wheels
« on: February 23, 2014, 02:05:58 PM »
I've seen them, but at $4.49 each it was a pass for me. If there was a Hot Wheels Archie's Jalopy, I wouldn't think twice about picking it up.

Too bad there's no IDW books listed for 2014  :'(
