    Question Im very new here and very surprised!!!

    There are so many amazing artist here that I feel as though I am nothing but a wisp of air. The real reason I wanted to join this site is because I really wanted someone anyone to draw This comic book Character I thought of. I know this is wrong but maybe someone out there would be nice enough to sketch him?? Maybe?? Well I am very sorry to waste your time...I shall continue to be a wisp....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Emerald_Streak ( this is my wiki thing just so you can have an idea of him) (sorry it sucks)

    try posting what you have in the critique center and see what happens. maybe you'll only get good pointers but maybe someone will even do a quick overpaint or something.

    oh man,
    i can't figure out why you put this picture in your article.
    Im very new here and very surprised!!!
    please tell me you didn't credit the creation of the Silver Surfer to THIS KIRBY!

    seriously, that aside...
    your character needs a lot more work than just a drawing.
    right now, he is nothing more than a mish-mash of other comic characters:

    "He is known for his Silver surfboard."
    "E.S also has a magnetic fin as a helmet."
    "E.S has an advance healing factor granted by the U.S Military Soldier X program."
    "He ends up with perfect marksmanship"
    "The ability to convert potential energy of an object(s) into explosive kinetic energy."

    you need to edit yourself.
    take ONE good idea, and go with it.
    too many little (unrelated & generic) ideas make the big idea weak.
    what is the MAIN theme of your character?
    all the other little ideas should be there to excentuate the big idea.
    right now, they detract from one another.

    on another note:
    "The character was created by modern genius Paul Prado",
    self-proclaiming yourself as a genius is a lttle tacky.

    wikipedia is supposed to be a source of FACTUAL information, even if those facts are about fictional characters.
    "E.S has sold 40,000 copies since august 1st 2006." is just plain fiction.
    i think a profile like this would be better suited on www.myspace.com

    What the hell is this?

    You said it's your character and you want him drawn, but then there's all this nonsense on that wiki about how your character has already sold "40,000 copies since august 1st 2006." ? I'm not sure if I'm just not getting it, or if you're trying to impress somebody by naking up bogus sales figures on a comic that never existed.

    As for the character. All I can see is a strange amalgamation of Wolverine, Rocketeer, gambit and the silver surfer. If these characters have already been made, there's no need to make them again.

    after reading your wiki al the way through, I'm starting to realize that it's just some big retarded joke. Thanks for the spam. but I drew your picture anyways.

    Im very new here and very surprised!!!

    I would say hilariously pompous, but to each his own.

    Why making up your own character?

    http://www.unfluffybunny.com/cripp12/

    Marvel has this HUGE graveyard of weird characters to idolize. If you make a wiki of them, it won't be deleted. And you have a better reference to share with the artist who'll draw you some fanart for moneyz.

    Btw: Interceptor, great picture!

    Don't you mean, "This is not the help you are looking for." With a Jedi hand wave.... actually that's very similar to the Pope's hand wave, come to think of it....
