MK_Wizard:For March, I did a whole lot of art because it's three holidays to consider. Woman's Day, St-Patrick's and the Greek Independence Day.

I should really think about what I'm doing for the Ides of March.

I have a rule to not use TBTS characters in out-of-comic scenarios since they aren’t mine, as it were, buuuut I just broke it:

MortxNahimana from Silver = My ultimate ship.

I’ll replace this image with a better quality version in a few days when I get home and have Photoshop back. I can’t get Procreate to resize without getting super pixelated. XP

Excellent work Serpy!! Another beautiful exchange!

Taily:Thanks for hosting, Serpenty!! This was amazing, I can't believe I just got two amazing dang pieces of Faustus art FOR FREE.
BIG UPS TO ROUX for using him as her entry!! That was a bizarrely and unwarrantedly selfless thing to do and I mega appreciate it. One of Fausto's dates ended with the girl walking out and the other ended with a lowkey implication that he was probably going to sustain a gunfire wound at some point during the night, I think both of these things are pretty standard for him

Well I wanted to be involved but I feel weird using my old characters and even weirder using uh... Kalgan. So as is often the case, kidnapping Faustus seemed like the best option and it yielded FERTILE GROUND for humor! Also good practice drawing deer people which always comes in handy. It was a win all around in my book. 10/10 would kidnap again.

I shamelessly steal my characters from cheesy 80s sci-fi movies.

All my pages that are online now were done in Photoshop. Right now I'm away from home and am only using Procreate, but I haven't been trying to complete pages. I just get them pretty far along in the sketch stage and then I'll do the finishing work when I have Photoshop again. I do want them to be consistent and I don't think I'm at a point to achieve that with Procreate yet. I've also been experimenting with one-off pieces to get a sense of the program.

I'd say if you're looking to achieve identical results to your current you'll have to experiment, or maybe find some tutorials that walk through where things are. There are a ton of brush settings that I still don't understand. It also took me a long time to figure out how to group layers, which is by selecting the layer and choosing "combine down."

Hope that helps in some way!

Ah! I'm a new Procreate user and was just eyedropping myself until I discovered:

When I click the color dot in the top corner it gives me a dropdown. At the very bottom it has "Disc - Classic - Value - Palettes." If you click "Palettes" it brings up a bunch of premade ones, but if you click the "+" in the upper right corner it adds an empty one. Clicking anywhere inside that new palette adds a block of whatever color you have loaded.

Overall, I like Procreate so far. It's always hard to try a new program when you're so used to something else, but I guess being on a different device has helped mediate my expectations.

Nevermind, the verdict is in, guys. A study has been vaguely alluded to and we haven't done an instant 180. We are truly the easily led sheeple of the earth.

IDK one of the best literary experiences of my life was reading the Scarlet Pimpernel for the first time in school not knowing the Pimpernel's identity. I guess it's kind of obvious in retrospect but it was so emotional and thrilling and then the fallout of the discovery shapes the rest of the book so much. I've reread it several times and it holds up, but it's a different experience knowing what happens.

So I guess like... serial stuff with dishonest "twists" shouldn't negate a legitimate way of generating and keeping interest.

Mild:That's really sad :(
It could've been just a kid who didn't think at all before commenting, but the damage has been done.
Why people can't just quietly stop reading what they don't enjoy...

I guess I wasn't super clear- the complaint was over the fact that I was quitting. I just found it odd that they were so invested in me continuing a comic that we both knew made no sense anymore. It didn't really bother me, though. I'm happy to be working on my current one.

Lutztoons:There was someone from years ago who posted on one of the final pages of an old comic. All they said was, β€œI don’t know what’s going on.”

I had someone say this on my previous comic and it really stuck with me as I was deciding whether to give up and start the new one. They then left a lengthy complaint when I went ahead and quit. XP

Fun fact: I would still have over two weeks to enter this contest if I hadn't already done it.

Too much blue light can actually cause neck pain. I got blue light filtering glasses and I've had fewer neck issues/migraines. Some devices also have settings to reduce the blue light they put out.

Also, remember to get up and walk around and stretch periodically! And stay hydrated!

Hey folks, as someone who actually lives in America and also can look up statistics, calling the cops is not a death sentence for yourself. There's a reason deadly incidents get on the news so Canucks and Aussies can hear about them doncha know.

Here are some actual stats about how the police respond to domestic abuse reports. There are 700k reported incidents every year and I'm guessing the majority of those don't end with the police killing someone? Sorry guys, it's a little frustrating to see someone who might need police intervention being told by people who don't even live here to absolutely not do it.

PS I've already reached out to defo by PM about my experiences and with my advice. I don't need to air that publicly but I'm not just chiming in to be right, I thought this was serious enough to point out.

I ran "The Wolf at Weston Court" and my little side comic "The Ten Tailors of Weston Court" at the same time. It wasn't a gag-a-day, but it was very simplistic and more comedic and lighthearted.

I think the key to making that work was that (at the time, at least) I had a plan for both comics. I had Ten Tailors completely scripted and knew what I was doing for the next chapter or so of TW@WC, so I didn't get hung up on ideas for one or the other. I also had most of Ten Tailors drawn before I even started publishing it. Even though your side comic is a gag-a-day, it might be worth having an idea of how you'd end it in the event that you run out of ideas or can't manage two comics anymore.

Anyway, it's certainly possible, and it can be a good way to catch different audiences and introduce fans of one project to your other. Good luck with it!

e: ALSO, TW@WC was more popular here on CF where people engage better with long-format stories. Ten Tailors was my more popular comic on Tapas, because cutesy fun stuff gets more traction there. Might be worth considering when you decide how to allocate your promotional efforts. :)

@shastab I can't even imagine dealing with that every day. I worked for just a few weeks just calling people for the phone book delivery company just to check that they got their phone book and that it was in good condition. People were so freaking suspicious and rude. :(

---

So I hear back from these... dummies. About this..... devil box. And they want me to "hand it to any FedEx driver."

What.

Do I like

I wasn't kidding about leaving the country for three weeks. I am leaving the country for three weeks. I'm also suddenly dog sitting all weekend, have to get all my projects handed over at work, wrap up all the artwork and lessons I'm doing for for my school, at some point I need to like... pack, aaaaand kinda wanted to clean my house so that it's not a trash heap when we get back. I have literally -100000000000000000 seconds to devote to this box.

Now you have read it and you are curse!!! Share this post in 5 threads or you will be visited by the devil box. If you share yourcrush will call you at midnight
