PvPonline Broodhollow » A cosmic horror adventure comic by Kris Straub Living Root Bridges In the depths of northeastern India, in one of the wettest places on earth, bridges aren't built - they're grown. The living bridges of Cherrapunji, India are made from the roots of the Ficus elastica tree. This tree produces a series of secondary roots from higher up its trunk and can comfortably perch atop huge boulders along the riverbanks, or even in the middle of the rivers themselves. Cherrapunji is credited with being the wettest place on earth, and The War-Khasis, a tribe in Meghalaya, long ago noticed this tree and saw in its powerful roots an opportunity to easily cross the area's many rivers. In order to make a rubber tree's roots grow in the right direction - say, over a river - the Khasis use betel nut trunks, sliced down the middle and hollowed out, to create root-guidance systems.The thin, tender roots of the rubber tree, prevented from fanning out by the betel nut trunks, grow straight out.

Mystery Babylon – Kick Girl - sparth - depot - custom shapes - Page 4 thanks all! i'm glad you're finding this technique useful. i've seen several awesome artworks popping here and there with it, and it's extremely fun and exciting seeing what peeps do with it.speaking of Alchemy, i had a sudden urge to give it a try with a new fun semi-serious style i've been experimenting with. free sketchworks done in Alchemy without constraints, then brought into photoshop cw5 for color passes. i did quite a few that i'm going to post here.it's a bit of a side thing from custom shapes, but it's healthy experimenting in other directions, even though custom shapes are now fully belonging to my workflow at a point or another.
Top Ten Online Comics of 2012 @ Comics Bulletin Hi. Our endless year-end coverage continues with a bunch of comics you could read for free online. That's right, we're doing The Best Online Comics of 2012. There are roughly 7 million online comics, so in choosing ten we left out lots of really good ones -- probably some of your favorites. I chose a bunch of one-off stories while my peers chose their favorite longform webcomics. I really wanted to put Eat More Bikes on here but there wasn't room, so enjoy that as a secret eleventh entry. - Danny Djeljosevic Bouletcorp (Boulet) english.bouletcorp.com Bouletcorp is a French journal webcomic by French cartoonist Boulet (which I thought was pronounced "Booleh" like someone vomiting, but it's actually "Boo-Lay" like a strange kind of cheering noise), and by now he has made nearly every sort of comic you can within that format. - Logan Beaver Virginia (Sam Humphries, Pete Toms; Study Group) studygroupcomics.com "Why do I make drawings when they make me feel wicked terrible?" - Danny Djeljosevic

Bill Cosby: Himself came out three weeks before my sister was born, and The Cosby Show came out five months after my brother and I were born. We heard a lot of Cosbyisms as we grew up.
