I think it'd be good to show off leadership and organizational skills. It takes a lot of coordination, and touching base and making sure the project gets completed on time. It's a lot of work, which I think people are going to start valuing :D Just like how I used club activities on my resume. It's like a club, just online :D
Edit: I just realized I simply rehashed what Serpy said XD I should have read that first. I was jumping at the bit to add something XD
Hands down my favorite Kurosawa film. Having worked in the bureaucracy of the State, this film really hit a nerve.
I'm a sucker for British humor. I guess there's some nostalgia since my cousin and I used to watch this over and over during summer vacation...
SupermarketCordyceps:Not exactly vintage like the other films people are discussing in this thread, but I bloody love Eraserhead by David Lynch.
There's a lot of really beautiful shots in that film. I realise it's not everyone's cup of tea but I love it. I think the fact it is black and white might have even been an influencing factor on why I only work in black and white when drawing or painting.
It was certainly an interesting movie. I feel Lynch somehow manages to make dreams into film. They often have a lot of meaning, but also make little sense (at least, upon first watch...I don't think I'm smart enough to get all the imagery XD) It made me feel all twisted and confused. I guess that's a good thing? XD (Mulhallond Drive's my fav, but it's in color, so...)
argylefox: I wouldn't appreciate Fyre lewds much at ALL (mainly because SHE wouldn't like it, is that weird?).
XD I think that's awesome. OH MAN! What if the character reacted to fan art!? I bet someone's done that (has anyone done that?) That would be fun, and be a cool way for the artist to get involved with the fanartist XD
Since you're in college (I have no idea what year,) if the bug thing, or even comic thing, is something you want to seriously pursue, maybe you could talk to whoever your advisor is and get some networking started and connect with other students, and professors, interested in helping you organize and get started? Or maybe even start a club where the work is divided between members?
In college a group of us got together and created a vegetarian club on campus. Our advisor, who was a professor, got us in touch with the campus paper, and some other people to help us learn how to schedule events, meetings, blah blah blah, all that.
Point is, we had no idea, so we worked with others to pull the whole thing together. The club ran from 2002-2010 when I graduated and no one was able to take over. It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot about graphic design from making pamphlets and designing our campus website. You could likewise meet up with people sharing your interests: and as long as you don't let other's progress get you down (I feel competing against myself is the best thing I can do, not competing against others,) you could all learn a lot from each other.
If I had it all to do over, I'd have focused a lot more on art club. I was part of it in my later years, but if I'd gotten with them sooner, I feel I'd be a better artist than I am now XD
Just my suggestion :3
Edit: to tie back into the topic. The sooner you get started and begin building stuff to post, the more likely you'll be able to grow an audience.
On one hand, I agree that I don't like to see certain characters doing things I don't feel fall in line with their character. And I get genuinely disturbed when I somehow stumble into the deepest, darkest spaces of Internet Simpsons porn...I just don't...get it XD WHY? WHY does this exist? It's someone's cup of tea, I suppose? I also feel disturbed if I see under-aged characters being drawn in porn. So I'm on board with how that type of art makes my skin crawl.
But then, on the other hand, I also feel it's not my job to police other people's art and tell them how to get their jollies. I mean, if it's art and they are just characters...far be it for me to tell someone else what to draw.
And I although I don't identify as a "furry," I sure as heck did watch BOTH Fritz the Cat films >.> *ahem* out of MORBID CURIOSITY, I SWEAR!
At any rate, I'm a dirty perv who loves nudey drawings and art, and am not ashamed to admit I totally *occasionally* read hentai, sooooo, maybe I don't have much right to be commenting here XD
(Uh, do I need to even qualify I don't like porn of underage characters? 'Cause, yeah, I don't.)
Lt. Locust:This one actually looks familiar to me - the black and white cross-hatching with the bright red. I'm not sure if it's your avatar I'm remembering or if someone had a similar one before.
Um...if you read my comic I don't advertise 'cause it's always on hiatus it might be familiar XD Or if you're part of Anime Forums...I use it there. You know, instead of my anime style art XD (I maybe should change that XD)
I don't know how "unique" I am, but I combine inking techniques with screentones and Photoshop filters...and I open and close each "chapter" with color pages...sometimes I throw color onto a significant page.
And if hair is covering the eye, I do not put a shine. I see people put shines in eyes that are covered all the time o_O I guess that's cool, but I don't.
It means you need a place online to have your file uploaded. You can't upload it to Comic Fury if it's a music file (at least, as far as I can tell.)
Think of a music file as anything you'd want to share online: it's just another file type.
Just like Imgur or Photobucket lets you upload images and host them there, and YouTube lets you upload your videos, there are places that you can upload your music files and host them. If you're going to embed it on a page here, you'll have to upload it into some hosting site first. (I think I used the wrong terminology that last post--I meant to say "upload" not "download." Sorry for that!)
I googled it, and found this list for "free" music hosts--'cause I'm not about that life (paying before trialing, that is.) Look here:
Deleted, will repost. Was in the middle of editing and hit the wrong button. Will repost properly.
This is all in the "Spoiler" Tag, cause of pictures.
First open the Extra page you want to edit. Then click the button that says "Source." This allows HTML editing.
This is similar to how a page would look (obviously, you'll have different content since your page is different from mine.)
If you're adding music, then take whatever code you're using for the music and PASTE it into this box. Follow the instructions from XWindows for this to make sure your code is right. If you have SoundCloud, which I've NEVER used in my life, I think you can upload music there? I just used my own WordPress site, but there are places to upload music files. Carefully read what was explained to you and add whatever code you want for the music.
To get the YouTube video code onto you page is super easy:
This is how the code looks, but I'll walk you through getting that code.
Go to the video you want to add to your site.
Click the "Share" button, which is circled below.
Chose the "Embed" option.
Then Select the "copy" button.
Now go back to your "Extra" page, and place the cursor where you want the video to be located on your page (Maybe you have a discussion before posting the video? It's up to you where you put it, but don't put in the middle of anything that's already there unless you want it between like the text or something.) You're going to right click and select the "paste" button.
So I've highlighted the new code I pasted, and circled the Submit button. To save your changes, as you know, you'll need to select the "submit query" button.
After that you can check and see how the page looks. Here's the result for my page. The newly added video is circled:
Okay, I just got back today. I won't have time to work on it now, but I'll try to send something before Monday (I worked while visiting family, but the drive and heavy traffic's tuckered this old dog out. I'm a dog now. Not a dragon. XD)
