While the rendering shows promise, there are some serious issues that I think need to be addressed. You've sacrificed the storytelling ...

First I want to apologize for sending a mass email. In this world we live in, we seem to be veering away from one on one communication. Unfortunately, in order to reach the most people at once, it’s difficult to individualize each message.

I’m writing you today because I need your assistance.
I’m currently running a Kickstarter campaign to produce the second book in the Molly Danger series. This is the link: www.kickstarter.com/projects/m…

I was able to successfully fund Molly Danger Book One three years ago with more than a little help from people everywhere including many of you.

  The campaign is entering it’s second stage and I’m trying to raise the money, $50,000 to produce both the actual book, but record a full cast audio companion similar to the one we created with The Audiocomics company for Book One. It’s a massive undertaking, one that I’m very excited about. However, the campaign isn’t making quite as much money I need it to at this stage, and here where you come in.

Kickstarter, as some of you may know is an “All or Nothing” proposition. If the campaign fails to reach its goal, no money exchanges hands. If you’re already aware of the campaign and have pledged, I thank you. If you’re just hearing about the campaign, I’d love for you to take a look at what I’m doing and if you’re so inclined to pledge, I’d appreciate it more than I can say. However, that’s not really why I’m writing to you.

What I need, more than anything else is for you to tell people about my campaign. To share the links on your social media links, with your friends, family or anyone else who may be interested in Molly Danger. The more eyes I have on the campaign, the more likely it will be that I meet my funding goal and that I can make this project a reality.

Molly Danger is a project I care deeply about. It’s become my most personal work as a creator and I have a vision for the series and it’s potential. I like to say that “I believe in Molly Danger” and it’s true. I believe that Molly can be for young readers the type of character that Superman was for me as a young comics fan. The type of character that inspires readers and transforms those readers in a positive way.

I want to thank you for taking the time to read this. I know nowadays, you’re probably inundated with theses types of messages and I appreciate you taking the time out of your schedule.

A lot of it is memorization and practice. Life drawing courses are very helpful, but you can also pick up books like George Bridgeman's anatomy books, Dynamic Anatomy by Burne Hogarth, or Figure drawing for all it's worth by Andrew Loomis. Once you start figuring out the base construction of a figure, you can develop it from there.
