Weibcomics Speed Drawing #2: Rocket Raccoon!

Posted a brand new Weibcomics Speed Drawing Video! This post features a time-lapse video of my drawing of Rocket Raccoon from the Guardians of the Galaxy theatrical trailer! I also wrote a breakdown of how I drew it, from rough line drawing to finished color artwork!

So today I blogged about Zombies... What do you find scarier: Walkers or runners when it comes to zombies?

http://micahackerman.weebly.com/blog.html

Please feel free to post a comment if you have an opinion on this very important matter for all horror fans.

Thanks
Micah

What happened to the missing Malaysian jetliner? Is this something straight out of a Sci-Fi or mystery novel?

Do you have any theories?

If you write YA or MG, check out this book.

By former literary agent Mary Kole, it's a recommended read - and actually made me pick up a few YA novels even though I don't usually read this genre.
