Both.

My comic is long, so it must be binge-readable, otherwise it would have been doomed. But nibblers are awesome, those reading the comic page by page, and comment along with it :D

Fortunately both can be met without being at the expense of the other one. There should be a fair amount of substance per page to make the nibblers happy, but the story should also flow naturally for binge-reading, so there must be the right pacing, and no dun-dun-dun cliffhanger at the end of each page, which would have made it strangely chopped up.

One major challenge though - webcomic memory loss, nibblers may forget things which happened like 25 pages ago, half a year ago... I provide context which helps remembering, but I should probably add a story summary too, at some point.

Just one thing where I don't really know any good solution though, skewed time perception, what's like one day in-comic feels like half a year for the nibblers, as it took half a year for the author to upload and for the nibblers to read. I once binge-read a comic I'd been nibbling on for quite a while, and was like - Wow those characters who I felt like have been hanging out together for quite a while... they've actually just met o.O

So there's a cutesy highly exaggerated female model and a more realistically proportioned male model- Well it *would* have been silly if these were the only models, but since there's the more realistically proportioned female model as well, I don't see any problem.

Feet pointing inwards is just because they're bent that way I guess, they could quite as easily get bent outwards Charlie Chaplin style as well ..?

ProfEtheric:So much this. The current scene in my comic made me sick to write and even more sick to draw. And right now my poor readers are having to sit through it... :(

I was actually thinking about this thread when seeing that page.. That poor guy D:

...and I, the poor poor reader simultaneously want and don't want such to happen :P

I love it :D

... I often dislike or even upright hate animated banners or avatars, because of their distracting or "nervous" nature, but this one has only smooth motions, it feels pleasant and on top it's very cute too. Nothing blinky or flashy, no sudden changes.

e: when right next to a comic page though, it may distract from reading. If that is where you want to put it, then maybe just have the animation show once instead of in a loop?

Thanks a whole lot to Shaneoid for making this thread, it's so important that people get informed about such things.

I was thinking about uploading comics on tapas but after this I've got very reluctant about it, even though they removed that ROFR thing (or whatever it exactly was or supposed to be..?) from their ToS.

It remains that they did sneak it in without clearly informing the artists, it was entirely unnecessary for the purpose they claim it was for, but which I've hard time really buying into, while it actually (because of its vague formulations) could potentially cause artists a lot of trouble. I really want to give them the benefit of doubt and not assume that they actually wanted lure artists into giving up rights, but I must also admit it has become very difficult for me to trust them now :-/

I'll keep an eye on how this develops, perhaps they'll become more professional and trustworthy in the future, then I may reconsider and upload comics there, but for now I'll stay away.

WHEN are you 2 going to collaborate again? Drooling savages Inquiring minds want to know. :)

Yes, we have been thinking about doing another one, just with reversed roles, I can tell yet when it will actually happen, but maybe later this year ..? :))

The colors on the girl look washed out compared to the rest, and the background around her is maybe too pale.

Some simple color fixes may make the image more balanced, perhaps something like this?
(increased contrast on girl which also makes the colors more saturated, decreased brightness on background, and finally a somewhat increased contrast on everything) -

Just a quick edit, the light/shadow is still not perfect, but it shows the general idea (?)

I loved it back then, sometime in the early nineties. Today I'm more like, it's a good movie but not "epic". But I still cry at that one scene........

The Kurgan Sword kicks ass ..provided the suspension of disbelief works out and I manage to ignore how nonsense it actually is ;)

Yes, there are some pretty terrifying scenes which makes me shudder in sheer horror, say oh no no no no no or similar things out loud, or even cover my eyes so that I don't have to watch. I think it comes from how I read my own stuff, when making a story I try to see it from the reader's perspective as well, to get the idea how it works for someone who doesn't know it already. So I get attached, with all the inevitable consequences. Additionally, working on a story means spending a whole lot of time on my characters, which may make me even more attached than the actual readers.

I have no difficulties with drawing it though, as I can de-attach during that process, it's the before and after which "gets me". And in the end, it's very rewarding when seeing the audience reactions and that it did work out as intended.

It's real, one of the many new species in the so-called "badland woods".

In an older version of this comic there are those two hapless guys getting attacked and eaten by a whole lot of those animals- lions, frog-kitties, anglerwolfclawfish, pacman snakes and also the wart-hyenas. I toned down that scene a lot however, decided that less is more, so the wart-hyenas are no longer shown.

Seeen:Frankly, I think that kind of thinking is exactly why this didn't work, though it's really more a theory than anything. I feel that perhaps people saw this, went, "Oh, that'll never last," and moved on — which is exactly why it didn't last.

Yes, I considered it pretty unlikely that it would go on for one entire year, but I was more like - Hey let's do this and see for how long we manage to keep it alive, even when it's just for some weeks we'll still have our fun :))

I remember it was sorted alphabetically when I joined, then sometime in 2015 it switched to chronological but only for a very short time, then back to alphabetical. Earlier this year I saw it was suddenly chronological again, ignoring the folders, which made it a dire pain to find anything.

As long as the 'sorted by folders' part is kept, I don't mind which order the files within each folder are, chronological or alphabetical. So-

Kyo:I could do it so that it sorts it chronologically within folders, if people prefer that.

This would work fine for me. And maybe it's the better idea because it gives people a chance to sort their files chronologically overall (by not using any folders).

Extra files sorted alphabetically is how it originally was, and how it's supposed to be, otherwise the extra files folders wouldn't make any sense. The chronological order was just a temporary glitch which seems to have been fixed now.

But maybe it's a good idea to add a 'select sorting type' option, so that everyone can decide for themselves in which order their files shall show?

You could blur out the people in the background, that not only saves a lot of time, it's also how it looks like in many or most crowd images anyway. Only the people in the foreground are in full detail, while the very rest is more like an undefined sea of "stuff".

Depends, but I vote for cool.

Because -
What I think of as cute is also cool. But what I think of as cool is not necessarily cute. So cool without cute works well, while cute without cool - not so much ;)

Kyo:it would have worked better if you were a dude, cause it's supposed to be a reference to this (also sorta gross image warning)

LOL!
Actually, the very same thought hit me as well, if I were a guy I'd be king... cat king... rat king!

ya know, because of your avatar

I "feared" I'd get meow-meow-meow-meow-meow... But yes, cat king is even more spot on ;D
