Join Shell Presto DiBaggio as she draws a golem fighter taking on a medusa in the style of old RPG books like the Dungeons & Dragons manuals, Palladium RPG books, and GURPS manuals.

While I draw, I'll talk about how why you shouldn't spend a ton of time creating a backstory for your new character when you begin playing a tabletop RPG. And I'll give you my best method for making an interesting character with a defined personality quickly.

I also talk about how to make a character who is made of stone look like they are, and I read an excerpt from an upcoming Challenger Confidential book featuring everbody's favorite granite-jawed hero, Bulwark.

If you want to read Bulwark's origin story for free, visit:

This artwork appears in Bexim's Bazaar magazine.

Join me, Shell "Presto" DiBaggio, author Michael A. DiBaggio, and horror and heavy metal artist Kim Holm as we talk about failing upward and the merit in reaching for unobtainable goals in your art.

Kim talks about how he succeeded in fine arts after failing to find success as a cartoonist, and how trying to capture motion in still art is like H.P. Lovecraft trying to describe indescribable horrors.

Join me, Shell "Presto" DiBaggio, and my art buddy ArtAnon, as we talk about why you need to have finished samples in your portfolio of exactly the type of work you want to do BEFORE you go trying to get someone to pay you for that sort of work.

More importantly, we talk about how you need to prove to yourself you can get a job done before you start making promises to other people.

While I talk, you can watch a speedpaint of me coloring ArtAnon's character art in Clip Studio Paint. The drawing is concept art for Alexander Hellene's "The Last Ancestor."

Join Shell Presto DiBaggio as I draw Medusa (the Ascension Epoch character, not the gorgon) and talk about the importance of showing new readers that you can tell a complete story in your first book or comic book.

We'll talk about the importance of having something exciting happen in your first piece of fiction, and how you need to show you can resolve a small conflict with a great ending even if there's a larger, ongoing conflict throughout your series.

Like many of Shell Presto's drawings, this has ties back to my work on our books in the Ascension Epoch universe. Learn more about the books I've co-written and illustrated, as well as the Ascension Epoch in general, here:

The video home of artist Shell Presto DiBaggio.

I draw, color, and paint, both on paper and on the computer. You can watch me, and maybe pick up some tips along the way. I'll show you everything I do from pencils to inks, from watercolors to markers (Copics being my favorite), from Post-it Note drawings to full comic pages. And I'll talk about my experiences as an artist, both professional and personal.

You can visit AscensionEpoch.com to see more of my art (as well as my writing).
