Atomic-Moo-Moocast-Icon-600x600

Our Interview with Katrina Kunstmann!

NEW MOOCAST! Yes, it has to be shouted about. Okay El Moochadores, we’re back with another bold, and grand, edition of the The Atomic Moocast! I can almost hear the applause from here… Anyways, on this delightful expedition into the world of Geek Creativity we talked to independent comic creator and artist,tumblr_mri1obubUe1qj3i1so1_1280 Katrina Kunstmann! Katrina has created a wonderful comic, Warhead, about a young graffiti artist living in London… who also has an acid green Atom Bomb for a head. Keen. The comic is a blast (serious, I wasn’t going for a pun there, I’m above that) and Katrina was a lot of fun to talk with! I’ve posted a few samples of Katrina’s art, and sample pages from the comic, below.

So here we go folks! You’re just one mouse click away from total audio nirvana (nirvana not guaranteed)! So, prepare yourselves! For this journey you’ll need one comfy chair, one cool fizzy soda, two ears, a working computer, and the courage to want to know what happens on the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

Enjoy!

Megaman Drawing Tutorial!

Basic Adobe Photoshop Drawing Tutorial by Zarting Arting

Zarting

Good morning El Moochadores! Both Chudd and I are practicing with digital drawing techniques, which means we’ve started to use more online resources to teach ourselves how to draw (and color) with a stylus and programs like Photoshop. Recently I came across this great tutorial, by youtuber Zarting, that shows how to illustrate and color Megaman from beginning to end. He moves a little quick, but the information is solid, so stand by with the “pause” button. You can check out the rest of Zarting’s online tuts here at his Youtube channel.

Also: Though I tried to draw Megaman (that one didn’t turn out so good…) I did use what I learned on this tutorial to draw Trog, a character from a webcomic I’m working on. The Webcomic is called Atomic Tails and, hopefully, I’ll be finishing the first set of 20 strips by this winter. Hey, I work full time, it gets tough to do what I want sometimes… Anyways, check out the Trog illustration below.

Enjoy!

What Really Happens at Comic Con (SONG)

dweebc

Good god; they did get in the wrong line. They started in San Diego and wound up in Anaheim. You see, that’s why you always walk up to a random person, who’s standing in that line, and ask, “what’s this line for?” If they say “Anaheim,” stay out! Anyways, check out this very funny song by Dweebcast that provides an accurate description of your future, con going, experience. The song is performed by Chad Neidt and Andy Riesmeyer.

Enjoy.

Hot Lead, Cold Iron

An Atomic Moo Book Review

hotleadcoldiron

Now out, through Titan books, is an original new paperback novel that melds fantasy and hard boiled pulp fiction. Written by veteran RPG and fantasy author, Ari Marmell, Hot Lead, Cold Iron is the first in a series of Mick Oberon novels about a fae gumshoe solving magical mysteries in prohibition era Chicago. Here’s the full synopsis:

Chicago, 1932. Mick Oberon may look like just another private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he’s got pointy ears and he’s packing a wand.

Oberon’s used to solving supernatural crimes, but the latest one’s extra weird. A mobster’s daughter was kidnapped sixteen years ago, replaced with a changeling, and Mick’s been hired to find the real child. The trail’s gone cold, but what there is leads Sideways, to the world of the Fae, where the Seelie Court rules. And Mick’s not really welcome in the Seelie Court any more. He’ll have to wade through Fae politics and mob power struggles to find the kidnapper–and of course it’s the last person he expected.

I Want To Live

A Cartoon on overcoming depression by Artist Erika Moen

preview

Via Leigh Lahav (OnlyLeigh) on the facebook: I know we don’t really say much about celebrity deaths here, but I was very sad when I learned of Robin Williams’ death this last Monday. Not only because he really was one of my favorite actors and comedians, but also because of the subject of depression that surrounds his death. Depression sucks. It’s something I’ve been dealing with for awhile and, though I’m not going into all of that, I am very glad to have read this comic by Erika Moen. It actually touches on a lot of thoughts and feelings I’ve had over the years and hits pretty close to my own current feeling about Williams’ death along my current thoughts on depression and suicide. It has a positive message and should be shared with anyone having a hard time. You can see the full comic at The Nib.
