I actually prefer Chicago stuffed pizza, and my favorite ingredients together are chicken, spinach, garlic, and artichoke hearts.
On regular pizza, I'm open to just about anything. Not a fan of anchovies, though. And while I like green peppers on it, after one slice I don't want them to be there anymore. What surprised me because it seems utterly redundant - sliced tomatoes. And yes, I'll eat pineapple on or in pizza, sure.
I picked Wednesday simply for the alliteration: Wolverton Werewolf Wednesday, WWW. Turns out I couldn't have picked a better day as I discovered afterward that 'WerewolfWednesday' is an established Twitter hashtag 'event' each week. It's not a problem sticking to it as I have had a nice sized buffer from day one.
I'll reuse townswolves from time to time and a few of them have become actual characters as per needs that arose. Storylines are a little malleable to accommodate new developments.
But the character that fits the question most: Duke. He'd been in the background one page only. I just loved him, brought him in again as soon as I could/as made sense and now he's a full blown personality and acquired a few plot points.
Welcome Gumshoecomix! I'm on Tapas, too. Started on here, though... And let it be said that ComicFury is the BEST place for comic. [Thanks, Kyo!] Poke around, have fun... and if you have a question, feel free to ask. Someone always has the answer. :)
So from what I've gathered from descriptions and posted pics, I realized I might be the only one who makes comics a particular way. I did not start out producing them this way, but it evolved into this over the years (don't know how long it really took to get to this method). It's much easier, for me.
I make my page layout (using quick sketches only), scan it in, put on the panels and dialogue. Then I make a copy of it and delete everything except the panel I will be working on next. I work on said panel and when it's done, I delete its counterpart on the actual page and then plug it in to its spot. Repeat until all panels done and page completed. I save each panel as an individual file such as P292 P4. Plus any computer glitches (accidental delete or program crash before saving or something), I am not out the WHOLE page, just one panel. Works out great.
Mine's the same story as many - wanted to put up a webcomic, searched, and decided CF seemed the best. My other two mirrors (Webtoons and Tapas) came much later. I still consider CF the best and my main site for the comic. [Thanks, Kyo!]
See what you think of 'Mediational Field' by Susumu Hirasawa. It's from the movie Paprika (amazing film btw), and it is, no joke, probably my favorite song ever. It's full of life and uplifting as can be. There's a lot going on in it, but's like life - too much happening at once and somehow still harmonized.
First, I must applaud your terrific thread title. Well done.
I certainly do not care for the no shading. It seems 2D and lifeless. I hesitate to say it, but I would like to see a shading that's a little darker than the soft and little lighter than the flat. If that's not an option, then I prefer the soft. To me it has the most "life" to it. The flat has too much of a contrast so as to be jarring. But as said, I think the soft could be a wee bit darker because it's almost too subtle. Then it would have the perfect "draw me in" and "real" quality.
From a drawing of mine back in high school. (It's been a few decades since.) I always knew the 'story' behind the little scene I drew. Couple that with the fact that I tended to draw (and sculpt) these werewolves (not these comic characters, just in general) off and on since then. Saw the documentary Stripped and realized I should expand that kernel story and make it a webcomic.
