Also I have been directed to Warren Ellis's site via twitter because there are guest comickers there all week to answer your comic creation/artwork/writing etc related questions.
I heartily recommend that you head on over to http://www.warrenellis.com/?p=8439 go say hello grab a cuppa and maybe ask some questions. Even if you have nothing to ask it is still worth reading comments to other people's questions. I for one am finding what the guests have to say very enlightening.
Go now, Emma Vieceli and Kelly Sue DeConnick are waiting for you. (Don't forget the biscuits)
