A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art
With movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend

Hey everyone! Got some quick Shanties-related announcements for you!

1) Character Q&A!
I’m doing some extra doodles to celebrate crossing the 1k sub milestone on Tapastic! So send any questions for me or the Shanties cast here or via tapastic, twitter, tumblr, what-have-you! I’ll be posting the doodled answers here, on the Tapastic Shanties Extras series, and my tumblr devblog, opalitecaye. ((Linked above!))

Verse 4 cameo spots are open for Patreon supporters! If you pledge at the qualifying Tier and would like a character in the background of upcoming panels, please send any relevant details and references!

3) Short Break!
Updates are pausing for a few short weeks. I’ve gotta script the next verse as well as design some stuff. I’d also like to finish a few pages so I finally have some form of weekly buffer, haha. So stay tuned, we’ll return with Verse 4 in no time!

Thanks so much to everyone for continuing to read and support Shanties! I appreciate each and every one of you! ♥

Just wanted to say I'm really enjoying Shanties. It's a beautiful concept on sirens and the art is a great cross between manga and realism. Keep it up!
