Proxy170:Like others have said, the Crossover Exchange is a great place to integrate each other's webcomics. And if you do it enough, you get familiar with each other's characters and even some exchange events become inside jokes or canon that make CF feel like one integrated universe. I've personally done a couple crossovers, both in participation and hosting, but I think the most fun I've had is when I made the Halloween Crossover Comic and this video, although some comics don't exist anymore :(
Bottom line, I'd say if you want a crossover universe then there's nothing better than rolling up your sleeves and getting started yourself!
Omg this video...its SOOO nice to see it again! <333
128mega:I'M SUUUUPER FRUSTRATED ABOUT MISSING IIIIT!!!! I super want my boy Max to go on a hypothetical date with some other character lmao. I wish there were Date exchanges that weren't specifically for valentines day :'(. i would attempt to start one, but not only would i not know how to manage it, i feel like i would be in some sort of trouble cause there was already one recently.
It's not a bad idea! I been thinking it might be fun to host just a regular, NON themed crossover exchange like the very first one...in which case any characters can do whatever they want whether its date or fight crime or..anything!
Haha and also as much as I love Vday, I'd love to host something else too sometime :P
We'll see what the year holds! IN any case there'll be plenty of chances before next Vday I'm sure!
Haha well my comic has no room at all for canon crossovers but....
You should DEFINITELY participate in the crossover exchanges! I know that's not quite what you're talkin' about here but I really enjoy it as the one time my characters can mingle haha. Would've loved to see ya for the V-day exchange but I know folks are already talking about the next one! ^_^
Jay042:Just as a change of pace, I'm thinking of just doing a simple, no-frills fan art exchange. There had been some grumbling about some artists doing these multi-page crossover stories (which I am guilty of) so I thought making this one limited to single image fan art might be easier for everyone. Plus it might encourage a few more new artists to try it.
Haha I have somethin to say about this!
Several years ago when I made the first crossover exchange, I never intended or had any idea that it would come to replace the regular fan art exchanges that had been going on on the site before. So... it might be totally fun to break things up again and throw some regualar exchanges in there--totally up for that!
And about the multi-page comics..... yes. Haha I did save a few people from having to drop out of the exchange this year because it was seemed to be thought that one HAS to do multi page crossovers. This is never the case! (although CF is updated now to make multi pages so much easier to upload on the site--THANKS KYO XDD). I personally almost NEVER do multi pagers... the one time I did a 2 pager is was because I had an idea :P.
So going forward pleeease don't feel like you have to do a whole comic! I always just want everyone to do what they can and what they feel inspired to do. I think for this particular theme more people just feel inspired to make a scene out of it...which is great! But not mandatory
So! Whatever type of exchange we do, I'll participate! But I like Jay's idea to mix it up a little bit ^_^
(and stilldown...I was thinking I'd made a little closing collage with all the images. Since I have them all saved anyway.. probably easier than emailing all 38 of them haha. If you don't mind. Hope you had a chance to see the video where they're all featured :) )
Jean_Q_Citizen:Oopsie alert! The one my artist did for Photogenic has my comic listed for both giving and receiving. Plus, my artist is Momoru. Thanks! Great work on the video! Wish I could have put something in for it, but I didn’t really have the money to pay Momoru for any extras, alas.
Ooops! Haha fixed! Thanks for letting me know!
I wonder how many times I did this throughout the exchange--hopefully that's the only one! lol
I used to be so on the button with updates I would say under my banner "Updates 11am on Fridays!".......aand it was pretty nice. People knew to look for it on that day (and I would know this based off of the numbers...if I missed it I noticed the numbers go up even if a page didn't update).
Buut sadly over the years Fridays at 11 am just turned to Fridays, then Fridays turned to weekends...then weekends turned to "once a week". My Real life just got too busy and unpredictable to have such a set deadline.
If I could I would absolutely go back to a set schedule like that but I don't want to make promises to myself or anyone else that I can't keep XD
Hey everyone! So we currently have 30/40 pieces turned in! Tomorrow is the deadline, February 10th, and the good news is I have officially received assurances from everyone that their piece will be done by exchange day on the 14th.
I can't really preupload them until I have them all due to time of day in dates soo...let's try not to cut it too close X"D
