Sorry for the inactivity. Some stuff happened a couple of weeks ago that put me out of order for a bit. Since I had a good buffer I forgot about CF for a bit, and now that bites me in the seating area :P
Anyway, let's give us all another week to do this, I will do a check up on you all to see where we at right now.
I have sent a PM to everyone still in and right now I'm the only one who knows who he is getting a gift from.
It's not in the rules to not tell who you got, but of course this is discouraged unless you happen to know that the one you are giving to is okay with knowing in advance.
If you want to communicate with the one you are giving or getting from you can PM me and I will send it on for you.
So I have an idea for a random gift exchange with a twist.
It starts with everyone interested checking in (one of) their comics in this thread followed by each getting a random comic to do gift art for. Here comes the twist: The challenge is to ship a character from your assigned comic with one from your own comic (the one you entered in the exchange).
Some ground rules:
Upon entering, mark if you accept NSFW or not (it's not a "yes or no" question, you may explain what you want, like "I don't want to be assigned a NSFW comic but do not mind if my comic shipping becomes NSFW as long as it's no sex or mittens involved").
Also tell us if your comic is SFW or NSFW Please write if you could accept doing one if the original giver can't deliver.
The registration ends the 21th June and the gift must be in no later then 21 July.
Around the 7th July I will check in to see how it's going.
Voted! And I'm trying on to have a daily spinn off as my incentive. It's called "Cloe's strip around the world" and started out as just a girl stripping in exotic places and before I knew it I was knee deep in researching ancient goddesses.
I think we should look at both the reader and the creator of comics. I think that someone who sets out to make a comic in most cases will want to make 2D comics. However, I do think that the making end will be different in many ways and that the other kind of 3D will look more like traditional comics making it much simpler to create comics (specially for those of us that still tries to figure out how to hold a pen right). However, I also believe that those who can do the real handcraft of 2D image making will be higher valued as real artists.
PeterVonBrown:Good point. Sorry I didn't make the distinction.
3-D as in layers showing over others to create the illusion of depth. Like a ViewMaster toy.
I'm skeptic towards this idea based on what has happened since the move from paper to screen. It's basically still the same product, despite being able to make motion, insert sound or interactivity. Perhaps being able to flip thru a comic book in 3d, but I don't 3d in the actual comic will be more then a gimmick.
