As far as music goes, there's a huge difference in music today and the music of the 70's in the way that they are/were produced. Back then bands made albums that were meant to be listened to in succession. Each song was a part of a larger story.

Now days bands concentrate on singles and their listeners download only the songs they want instead of an entire album. Also, albums were meant to be listened to with headphones.

Listen to this with headphones or a good set of earbuds --> Pink Floyd - Time
or this one --> Pink Floyd - Great Gig in the Sky

My favorite bands from the era: Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Journey, Boston

Please read the whole story, especially the last few paragraphs. It is important to understand why this is happening.

I've been reading the comments and I want to make it clear; this is not due to dry season, arsonists, global warming or any other usual causes. These fires are INTENTIONALLY set by loggers, miners, and farmers. The Brazilian president Bolsonaro was elected in January of this year. He was elected by loggers, miners, and farmers. Bolsonaro declared shortly after taking office that his administration will no longer enforce any ecological laws that protect the rain forest. Brazil was in an economic depression and he was elected to get their economy rolling.

I've been following this story now for a few months and it is disturbing to see it happening.

TheStrangerous:One wonders whether it was some arsonist or natural cause.


It's definitely intentional. Newly elected Brazilian President Bolsonaro has declared that he will not enforce ecological laws protecting the rain forest.

Since the server upgrade I've been getting a lot of intermittent "Error: No connection to the database server. This most likely means that there is a heavy load on the server right now. Try refreshing or waiting a few seconds and then refreshing." but oddly it is only on the individual comic sites and not on the main CF site.

Edit: Just got a "comicfury.com refused to connect." on the main so I guess it's all the server.

Like Kelsey said, you're over thinking it. My first guess would be that your friends are right and they like you. People laugh when they are nervous. They don't laugh if you're a turn-off.
Second guess is maybe the way you said it and they misunderstood it at first, then it was funny when they realized what you meant.

lirvilas:Nothing against Comic Fury, but having “lots of subscribers” here doesn’t get you remotely close to being “internet famous”—Datachasers being obviously the possible exception. And there’s other comics that have crazy high page views with zero comments... lies, white lies, and statistics, bro.

I recommend we all just grind out another page, it’s more constructive.


This ^^
You really need to branch out to get readers. Listing sites like Top Web Comics and The Belfry Web Comics are good places to start.

Never follow the light in the forest. If you do, the feasting elves just disappear and you wake up in spider webs.

Edit: I just realized why almost no one got this, because the "mysterious glow beckoning me into the forest" was not in the movie. It's from J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" chapter eight. No one reads anymore when you can just watch the movie.

There is a very good reason we need to get a base(s) on the moon -- Helium 3. It is rare on Earth but abundant on the moon and "...a fully-loaded Space Shuttle cargo bay's worth -- could power the United States for a year."

There are 6 L.E.M. Descent Modules and 3 Lunar Roving Vehicles still on the moon. They have been photographed by the many Lunar orbit satellites from many different countries including Russia, China, India, Japan, and the US. Also, there are three retroreflector arrays left on the Moon by Apollo 11, 14 and 15, verifying deployment of the Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment at historically documented Apollo Moon landing sites and so proving equipment constructed on Earth was successfully transported to the surface of the Moon. These can be verified by anyone with the appropriate equipment, and have been verified many times.

To say it was a hoax is ridiculous.

My advice for anyone that has any interest in making a living in art is to always use the industry standards. For instance, the standards for the gaming industry are Photoshop, 3ds Max, and Maya. You can't put Gimp and Blender on a resume. Most of these programs have a student version that is cheap or free.

I live in the prepper state of Florida where we prepare for any hurricane, asteroid, nuclear attack, or any other extinction event. We're totally stocked up on enough beer to party through it all.

Every hurricane you can tell the native Floridians from the non-natives at the grocery store. While non-natives are stocking up on canned food and batteries, Floridians are stocking up on beer.

Welcome!
Making a living solely off of webcomics can be done but it takes a ton of work to get there. For instance, Dave Barrack has been making Grrl Power for about 9 years and brings in about $40k per year from Patreon. Rick Griffen who does Housepets does about the same. Thomas Fischbach has been working on Two Kinds for over 15 years and makes over $100k per year from Patreon. These guys probably make a bit more from merch and paypal donations too.

There are very few people out of thousands who have actually managed to make a living from webcomics alone.

mightguy15:Thanks for the tips! This was very much in depth, in fact I'm gonna save this comment lol. And I learned that I was pretty durn stupid to use so many spotlights, they can literally only work in certain situations.

However, I must ask. You mentioned using 3Delight instead of I-ray, is perhaps I-ray just not the way to go most of the time. I love I-ray, but I don't want to use it if 3Delight can do that and then some.



Spotlights in 3dl can be very effective accent lighting, such as lighting eye area only and leaving the face dark, but turn strength way down. They're also good for creating nice forest scenes because you can use a trans map on the lens to create tree shadows on a character.

Iray has a photometric spotlight that is very versatile but the rest of it is limited. You can't tile textures, can't use atmospheric affects and cams, fog, smoke, godrays, particles, uber point lights, uber spotlights, and other effects. I would say that if you're going for photo-realism in a sterile environment go with Iray, but 3dl is more reliable in my opinion. Myself, and at least everyone I know is limited to 3 or characters in a scene with iray before it crashes in posing before you get to render stage. In 3dl I can use 20-40 characters (or more) before it starts lagging out in pose stage.

All in all I think 3delight is better for mass production of still images like comics and iray does a better job of photo-realism on small projects. It's probably more personal preference and if you feel comfortable with iray go with it. But my typical scene has 6 or more characters so iray is not an option for me. Think of iray as a photo studio and 3dl as a movie studio.

You need ambient lighting. Drop an "Uber Environment Light" set to "Occlusion w/Soft Shadows" and remove the spotlight, replace it with a directional light (distant light). Set its shadow type to "Raytraced". Set shadow softness to 5% and shadow bias to 0.3. Set the shadow on the UEL to 35% with a very light brownish color. With shadows distant lights are blocked by the building so make sure to aim it through the window behind him and it will give you some cool shadow effects. If the window is fake and not translucent you'll have to use a linear point light, which is meant to simulate a fixed light and won't look the same. If you don't have UEL sets you can use 3 - 4 distant lights from different directions but set them real low like 10% and don't use shadows on those.

In render settings use 3Delight, pixel samples X & Y about 12, shadow samples about 24, and Shading Rate at 0.5 (or less if it looks grainy).

If you want to see what all that looks like click on The Crease link below but it is NSFW.
