Welcome... back?

That's quite an introduction to oneself. :)
I think you might find some of the right kind of people here. ;)
Enjoy the shenanigans.

Tell Mr. Jones to go to 7734

(Used Mr. Jones solely because that's how I first encountered it.)

On the whole, we've [my friends and I] been enjoying it. In that it makes us laugh out loud with the same witty wackiness.

I like the change to Gypsy coming from the ceiling. It's not only logical from the in-world perspective, but from a shot/frame angle (pun intended). Also works for the during the movie. I do not, however, like her voice. Yes yes, the voices have been different over the years, and her change is outright explained. But it just doesn't jive as Gypsy.

Same with Tom Servo. His voice is off. Again, it's changed over the years, but it also had an essence. This doesn't. His flying around is fun, though.

We, too, miss the regular robot roll call. The silhouettes just aren't cutting it.

My sweetheart thinks the main Mad is too young, but I'm not exactly of that opinion.

I do like Jonah.

It seems a bit more production value than before, which is oddly disappointing. One of the aspects of the film I liked is that the quality seemed to go down. It's a little too "Netlfix slick".

BUT - otherwise, it's not horrible. We can live with it, as we're able to continue the mission of laughter.

I should also mention that we've been watching old (all/any seasons/characters) lately. Tons of them. And we're just about out of the ones available on Hulu or Netflix.

Oh, why did they release them all at once? Would have been better to make us wait for them each week. :/

Chess:Trying to get my novel published! Seeking agents, writing cover letters, that sort of thing.

More specifically, THIS, actually. And writing one.
Although I'm not doing that now... just the comic.

As I understand it:

Kickstarter is for funding a project (whatever that may be), and people pledge money toward a goal of being able to produce that project. They will get some sort of reward (even if just a credit somewhere) for helping support the funding. Once the deadline for the goal is reached, it's either successful or unsuccessful.

Patreon is for individual artist/s who make things (song... painting...) when people request and pay for them --OR-- (meaning either happens) people pay so much each month for a product (such a webcomic) that is done regularly each month, like a patron of old.

Funny, since both ways are depicted on my comic on the same page. I've cropped out the parts and put them side by side. Apparently Talbot drizzles, Charlie dips:

Image: http://wolverton.webcomic.ws/files/forum_threads/page_70_snip.jpg


Me? I prefer ketchup on fries,
HOWEVER,I also enjoy them plain. With barbecue sauce. With mayo. With vanilla ice cream. With ranch dressing. With honey mustard. With vinegar. It depends on my mood.

In order to answer the actual question, I will do both, but about 90% of the time on side. About 2/3 of the fries, though, are eaten plain. So that's where the drizzling might come in... just a few left... leave yourself a place to hold it (if not using a fork).

Mine is an ongoing series with no end planned. I have a whole mess of storylines with arcs to them that all interweave on some level. And more keeps coming up to do and fit into the mix. I'm just laying it out and finalizing or reworking it as I go. Since I know where to go with each arc/story, I plan about 3 to 5 pages ahead heading toward the end of it and start up each new one as it comes up or can fit in. It's a bit of juggling, but it's certainly not a frantic juggle. I'm having fun with it.

Same thing, except now making comics fits into it... as in I came to ComicFury because I had comics to make. No previous online art posts to speak of...

Hello rottingichor. Welcome n' such. I usually tell people to have fun, there's much to find both silly and useful here. And of course, plenty of comics.

I especially "like" (eye roll kind) that the people in charge tried to formula-ize it. Too often this is the case in the entertainment field. Despite so many 'mold breaks' making it big, all they do is make stuff just like THAT mold instead. Oy.

I came across this article in one of those derailing journeys on the 'net. It's got some fun info in it. Both about The Far Side and Larson, as well as interesting thoughts on the nature of what a comic can/should be or entails (or what the media thinks/thought it does) by Larson himself.

I'd love to be able to give a special trick, but I agree with malford and shaneoid. You've got to love it to begin with first. In my case, these werewolf characters (generic forms, except for 'main' Talbot) have been happily haunting me for <<cough>> decades now. They have never failed to give me a smile. So when I decided to make a webcomic out of them, the joy just expanded. So far I've yet to not be motivated to make my comic. (Not counting the every third blue moon or so when one just doesn't feel like it which would be true of ANYTHING, but always done soon (like next day) with eagerness. That, and playing Breath of the Wild... ;) [Seriously though, I've been able to balance the comic with Zelda even still!]) I don't think that it would be as fun to create if I didn't care so much about them.

So that's at least a factor. Now should the spark be there at the start and fizzle, that's another matter entirely. :/


Edit update:

Yes, writing stuff down is always a good idea. I've got lots of notes. Pity that some of it won't see the light of day for so MANY many pages... but that also serves as motivation... I need to GET to them! :)

Also did junoro's suggestion when I began. Although I made 16 comics to start. It's a great idea, as it allows you to "get into it" (or know if you do/can), and it also makes you begin with a buffer, of course.

Well I certainly do, given that my yet-to-arrive and ever-so-slight sexual content inquiry about my comic prompted this again.

So... what are your opinions on what constitutes flagging for sexual content?

I ask because I've had the flag for sexual content on my comic. I put it on when I first uploaded because I know that down the road there will be characters having sex. However, I don't plan on showing anything explicit. You won't get to see any act of sex or genitals, but it will be obvious that it's occurred. I only plan to show something along the lines of the covers moving suggestively. Also, it's STILL down the road. The character hasn't even met the boyfriend yet (on the pages)!

Do I even need it?

Genre can be tricky since there are so many overlaps. I'd say go ahead and change the label if you think the trend will continue. Is it the shape/focus of the comic what you now like/see it as? If so, then sure, make the change.

It would be better if we could choose multiple genres/categories. My comic (and others' who have expressed as much) has a difficult time fitting into just ONE. Then your 'problem' would be solved. ;)

ChilPhil:If possible place your dialogue down on the page first before drawing, or have a very good idea how much space the dialogue bubbles will take. There were pages I spent a lot of time drawing background details only to have it covered up with character dialogue.


I second this! Eventually I learned to do this as well. And it's not just for unwanted background-covering, but also plain old panel content layout. Perhaps an arm or an object that needs focus just WON'T fit the way the text/bubbles are situated. Clever finagling or edits can then be done.
