Is it wrong that I don’t care for figs?

Yes. Yes, it is very wrong.

Mini-comics!

Seriously, I have made so many mini-comics because of an idea or urge to draw something that wouldn't fit in the actual story. Just label them non-canon or Alternate-universes, pseudo-canon(???) or... canon, but separate from your main comic for the sake of consistency. They're super fun and I recommend it to get ideas out of your head and explore different angles and crevices of your story/characters through them, even if it's just drawing thumbnails and hiding them in a secret page on your comic site as a "bonus material" ;D Thumbnail and/or doodle those bad-boys!

Some of mine:

No useful advice to give, just wanted to share condolences that you've been dealing with this injustice on-top of injury :(
Hopefully you get something good out of the other posts or reddit legal advice. Don't give up, just yet.

More Veggietales humans! I really wanna do more characters from this particular episode, the designs and sets are fantastic.

What's crazy is you can convert cartoon vegetables to humans and they still be so recognizable XD

The Letter M:So what is black friday celebrating? Is it connected to thanksgiving? Are you all racing in to buy the best turkey or what?


Black Friday is technically more of a celebration for companies. It's called "black" because it's when their profit margins on the charts go from a red arrow pointing downward to a black arrow moving upward. Or so the legend goes!

After Thanksgiving, Santa was coming to town and people started thinking about/buying Christmas gifts. Competing companies noticed this and would put on sales to bring shoppers to THEIR stores to do their Christmas shopping. It's morphed into a very ugly thing where companies would open earlier and earlier each year, forcing their employees to work on a national family holiday and shoppers get so caught up in the sales that there's even been cases of people being trampled to death in the eager crowds going after one of the 10 very cheap X-Box's or whatever the store was advertising.

Painfully ironic that it's seeped into a holiday that's supposed to be about being thankful for what you have.

______

Thankfully those days are behind me, but I never witnessed the horrible scenes that go viral on social media of people acting like animals. I guess because my store opened a couple hours after the earliest stores, so all the loonies probably got it out of their system by the time ours opened. I just kept shelves stocked in my department and waded through the crowds. The adrenaline rush from the event helped the 10 hour shift feel shorter. Most customers were still fairly polite, so it wasn't actually so bad.

Still, I hated giving up time that was supposed to be at home with my family, since they were starting to open ON Thanksgiving day :(

One year, half of my family were working retail, so we just completely rescheduled Thanksgiving and had it on a Saturday, which worked out very well! We got our holiday and Thanksgiving just became another Thursday where we got holiday pay $$ :'D

No black friday shopping for me, but cyber Monday is a thing, so that's cool

It was 3/5ths of the answer choices. I've taken enough multiple choice quizzes to know the similar answers are usually hiding the correct one.

Auuuugh I really shouldn't sign up for this seeing as I barely can make time for my own comic these days >___>;;; B-but how could I resist a Christmas exchange!??

WELP. Will kick self for this later. It definitely won't be as ambitious as my last one but bring on the holly-jollies
_______
Signing up with Beyond Bloom (which has a V!iolence tag)
Would like to avoid the heavy S! and N! tags
Past Exchanges: Telly Savants - Serpents of Old - Alice Darkly - All Dark University

EDIT: Will the collab project involve just a drawing of a character reading from the poem?

WARNING: CATCH-UP MEGAPOST



26. Do you seek out critique or feedback? What do/did you hope to get out of it? Have you found it helpful or discouraging? Did any feedback you received make you angry?

Sparingly, cause I don't want to take up anyone's time. :P It's to pick peoples' brains to make sure the story is coming across how I hope it would, but it's not always helpful unless I can read their mind. And... no, no feedback has made me ANGRY, I don't think? Maybe if someone's feedback were like "Hey, this character ripping off Sans from undertale, because they tell jokes and wear blue!" but nothing that bad has ever happened yet, haha

The pigeon language is VERY efficient.
But for real, thanks for hosting last week, Mightguy!

Ariane always looks ready for Halloween

Jeremy7:So, new ROS tonight? I'm gonna have to sit the next few days out... y'know, Halloween and all.

It's currently being colored and will be posted shortly. Just terribly discombobulated and lots of multitasking slowing down the process, oi

Don't know much about the world of 3D, but I can't imagine it's much different than downloading fonts or using those pre-made image-brushes that come in drawing programs (you know, like the one that creates grass?). You follow the royalty/copyright guidelines and not claim the font/texture/model as your creation, right?

Personally, I find it cool and admirable when people make their stuff from scratch (something about that extra bit of elbow grease oozes the artist's own style), but if you can use them effectively and overcome that challenge of it looking tacky, people probably won't even care, or even notice, for that matter. But uh... not sure how you can "cheat" at a hobby... o.oa If your goal is speed, go for it.

Okay, first page finally up to date

Thank you so much for covering this week, Whiteshaix! Your presentation is hilarious XD
It's amazingly easy for Julian to get 'in costume' lol... and that 'Sikue' is so handsome!

These answers are all pretty entertaining, actually. With some raising even more questions.

Ehhhh?

Darkening the brows seems to help with the eyebrow thing.

This is probably the longest my hair has ever been (almost reaches my rump. Bwahaha).
Gotta get my little floof cut back... eventually.

1. Why did you choose comics as a hobby? Think of the top reasons, and try to list them roughly in order of most to least important. These reasons will help you assess which parts of comic management will be most useful to you.


It's all been pretty much those forms of self indulgence^^^. No desire to improve art or get famous or anything (never saw that realistically happening, as fun as it can be to imagine)

2. Do you think much about comic management? What does it mean to you and do you think it’s important? If you could give your management style a grade, what would it be and why?

Hmm... C-? It's pretty important, though I hesitate to put much effort into promotion/presentation/practical design. And sometimes there is just poor planning. Posting once a week on CF and listing it on some webcomic listings is the furthest I got, I'd rather focus on actually MAKING the comic, but at least I haven't skipped a week, yet.

3. Is a consistent update schedule important to you? Why or why not? If it is, are you having trouble maintaining consistency? What is causing that trouble? What causes are out of your control and what things can you change? If you’ve had success with consistent updates, do you have tips to share with the thread?

I don't find it so important, personally, since I like to binge them, but some people do. However, if I don't keep on top of a routine, I'm worried I'd get "too busy" and neglect it, so the schedule is good.

4. Is your comic scripted, outlined, thumbnailed enough that you're not worried about running out of material (remember, that can mean none at all as long as you're comfortable!)? If not, what steps could you take to relieve that worry (budget more writing time, ask a friend for help, take a break to finish your script, etc)? If you’re happy with your method, share why.

Not at all! I have the ending and the steps to get there (and more) in mind! The worry is whether I can actually execute it, properly! :'D

5. Do you have a page buffer? Are you comfortable with the leeway it provides you? If not, what steps could you take to improve it?

Used to have a huge buffer, but, boy that sure got eaten up as I deliberated and tried to force out a chapter while having writers block.

6. Do you pay attention to fluctuation in your buffer size, or if you don't have a buffer, do you notice how close it is to your post date when you're completing your page? Has your buffer or lead time been shrinking or growing? Is it time to consider adjusting your update schedule to match your output capacity (whether that's decreasing or increasing updates)?

It was painful watching the buffer shrink to nothing. I'd love to build it up again, but alas, weeks keep passing and I'm finishing pages at the very last minute, lately. TT__TT

7. Have you had to take a hiatus in the past (or are in one now)? What factors contributed to it? Were they foreseeable? What steps could you take to prepare for a hiatus (building a buffer to prevent or minimize it, negotiating guest art, preparing other hiatus content, taking planned breaks instead etc)?

Nope, and hoping I can avoid needing to. Hoping to have some pages prepared for when I finally move and do "other stuff" which might keep me from working on it.
EDIT: Just remembered; In the past when I scribbled my comics in pencil and had somewhere between 0 to 5 readers, I'd get stuck on a part or temporarily lose interest for months at a time, but Beyond Bloom would always call me back. Some projects I have floating around in my head and still never picked them back up.
