As of the time I'm typing this I only have 6 panels to draw of Shadows of Oblivion #3. So I'll be sending it to the printers very very soon.

I would like to have a letters page in this issue where I answer your letters in a column in the back of the book.  But before I can do that I actually need letters!

So do you have a question about the world of Shadows of Oblivion? Do you have a question for me as the creator? Do you have a comment that you want to share?  Then email it to me and I'll print your letter and my response in issue #3!

Send your letters to fanart@shawnmccauley.com

Put "okay to print" in the subject line so that I know I have your permission to print your letter in the comic. 

I look forward to hearing from all of you!
Despite set backs that were beyond my control, Shadows of Oblivion #3's main story is done! I just need to do some graphic design and then I can send it to the printers!

Hello~
I've spoken to you a few times before on here (as gianna-peels) and I've been following you on Tumblr for a bit. I just wanted to say thank you for being so nice and cool! Every time I'd get discouraged about my comic, I'd look at the advice and help you give people. It's very uplifting and it helped me complete my first comic. So thank you again for getting me through the tough parts of comic making :iconsmilieplz:

Wow, That is probably the best thing I've read all month. Thank you so much, I'm so happy that my words actually make a difference!
I'm very happy you're still drawing. Many of my teenage students sort of stop when they're 17ish. interest in boys/girls, jobs, and looking forward to college usually puts a damper on that. I was really impressed with the WarAngel you submitted to my fan art contest a year or so ago, so I'm glad you haven't wasted your talents!

I read the first chapter of your comic.  I really like the idea, I can't wait to see where it goes.

For the next issue consider your text.  It's not bad in this issue by any means, (you should of seen the first comic I ever made... yikes..)  But i think you can make the font a little bit smaller and condensed. That way it'll still be readable but you'll have more space for the drawings. If you're not sure how let me know and I'll try to give you some tips. 

Best of luck and keep on making comics!

Yeah, it's funny you say that because I went through a lot of stuff with art recently. It's almost hard to believe I'm still drawing.
Oh haha thank you C:

Wow, thank you!! I've been writing it for 3 years, so hopefully others will enjoy the story as well! :D Writing was a lot more fun than the art.

I didn't even know the text would be a problem until I started trying to add it in, but it guess that's how it goes lol. It was very awkward. The littlest problems started coming up and I just kind of went "ah well, I'll do better next issue".
Oh of course~ Any tips would definitely help, if it's not too much trouble!

Thanks! :D

It's tough, I didn't even realize I wanted to draw seriously until I was 19ish almost 20.  So you have a leg up on me already.  So keep at it.

I also like writing the story more than drawing it.  Not that I don't like drawing the story. But after I write it, I get pumped for the story and want to share it with everyone.... then I realize I have to wait many months for me to draw it all out. It gets over whelming at times, but it's worth it!

You said you follow me on tumblr? Maybe I'll type up a lettering tutorial in the next few weeks for you.

i need help. lately ive been drawing. the problem is that i keep getting the legs out of proportion (they are too short). any tips?

When a person is just standing there, (no crazy posing) they are 7.5 heads tall.

If you count the actual head as the first head length. The waist is roughly 3 head lengths down.
The 4th head length is in the middle of the thighs and the 5th head length is just below the knees.

The distance between the hips and the knees is the same length as from the knees to the ankles.

If you use all these measurements the legs should be the proper length. Remember the lower half of your body is not the same length as the top half. It's longer. 

and last tip: when the hands are down by their side, their finger tips should be a mid thigh length (the 4th head length)

Hope that helps!
