Centcomm:My Dragonborn in my heavily modded Skyrim game. She just hit level 12 whooo!
Congrats, Centcomm! Love that character shot.
Is that hair from the ApachiiSky mod?
I was playing Skyrim again, trying out a makeshift spellsword character, but I wound up putting the game on hold when I discovered the Secret World. TSW is kinda all I've been able to talk about for months now. I'm a little obsessed. >.>
Such a fun topic! I've really enjoyed reading everyone's responses. :)
As for me, I never actually set out to create a web comic.
I've been an avid reader/admirer of comics of all kinds throughout most of my life thus far and I've always loved to draw (I even majored in applied arts in college), but the creative dream for me was always writing. I wanted to be a novelist. I still do, although that particular aspiration's changed quite a bit in recent years with my discovery of the Ren'py Engine.
Anyway, about five years ago I nearly died and wound up housebound for a little over a year with severe agoraphobia in the wake of that experience. During my recovery, my behavioral therapist recommended an art project designed to help me illustrate my condition (I hated talking about it) in a way my friends and family might understand. So I started drawing and eventually, I had a few dozen images that weren't linear in any way - the characters didn't even have names, not even the recurring ones, although one of them is obviously me - but they all fit together pretty well and I eventually realized it was something I could probably post on the internet as a somewhat experimental web comic. The art had helped me immensely while I was in a pretty dark place in my life and I wanted to put it out there, just in case it might help others, as well.
Besides, social anxiety and awkward life moments are everywhere all the time. I think it's important that we're all able laugh at them, especially those of us who fall victim to them on a near daily basis. I grew up loving dark humor and dadaism, so comics with those influences often cheer me up the most. That and I really don't know how to make art any other way.
Anyway, Postcards from Purgatory has evolved a lot since then and only a small portion of the currently public comics are actually about agoraphobia, but yep... That's how it started. I went crazy and my shrink told me to draw it out. :P
Like many others have said, I'd also like to travel, especially to Italy, Romania and Finland. But in order to do that, I'd have to stop being agoraphobic. So... actually, I s'pose I'd just like to not be agoraphobic anymore. That's the big dream.
More realistically, I'd like to finish my visual novel by 2017. And meet Jeffrey Combs.*
*Jeffrey Combs is coming to O! Comic Con this year, so that dream is oddly the most feasible dream on my list!
Spanish and French military uniforms would be a lot more colorful and members of "the master race" would be required to have plastic surgery which would rearrange the most important parts of their faces.
Hello! I'm a little new. I sincerely apologize if this is in the wrong place or if it's a question that's been answered recently and I just overlooked it in my search!
I'm just a little confused about how the preview images work on the front page of the site...
I've noticed that most of the comics displayed on the front page (i.e. Recently Updated, Popular Now, Random Selection, etc.) have preview images attached to them, but for some reason, mine and a few others are simply displayed as text. Is this a time-sensitive thing for newer members? Or is there an option I've missed in my settings somewhere?
Oh hai, ComicFury. My name is Molly.
I'm new here... sort of.
I created an account a long time ago, but never posted anything. I just lurked.
From everything I gathered then and have gathered now that I'm back and being more active, this is such a fantastic community with so much talent just bursting out from everywhere. And everyone's been so nice to me! Thank you all for that. :)
