GMan003:(If you're a Real Web Pro, you can wrap your actual comic page in a named anchor tag, and make nav links go to that label. That automatically scrolls the page so the top of the comic is at the top of the screen, when you come from a previous page. Readers on an archive binge don't need to be reminded what site they're on. I don't recall if the premade CF layouts do this, but it wouldn't be hard to add.)

i really like this idea. i got curious if i'm smart enough to do it and got it to...function.

here's what i did for those who also wanna (you'll be editing under the "comic page" tab):
you may have noticed while reading a comic the url gets bookended with "#content-start". using my 3rd grade logic skills, i decided to use that label. unless you want that anchor to remain as intended. i'm probably committing a hacker crime.

starting with the straightforward part, the comic navigation buttons;

but most of us has the "click page to go next" enabled, and it doesn't do the same, so...

don't forget the keyboard navigation if you have them;

hope it's easy to follow. and if this is off or something, let it be known...

Yes there are lots of 3D animated works out there that don't demonstrate technical proficiency - you'd see it regularly in a school or college with an animation program. They either don't get posted online or get little views, so the latter gets buried by work that is more polished or has some other thing going on. Same goes for self-taught artists, which you may find in forums or stumbling upon a 40 view count vid.

I come from a 2D perspective - I have little experience with 3D so I won't be able to go too in-depth or using the correct terminology, but similar principles may apply and making shorts is "filmmaking".
Robotwin has brought up good details and things I will be mentioning, but here's my rambling version anyway:

Thoughts on public perception:


Issues from personal observation:


Comparisons to comic form and the "Cringe" label:


Message to you:


This is long and could be put more succinctly, but they're not uncommon fears so I'm delivering what I've picked up from reading and discussing with others.

historical fiction prior to early-mid 20th century. i tend to struggle to pass the feeling of "breaching" a vision of history and will lose my head during the research process. i'd probably end up crafting nonfiction findings or fantasy mixes if that makes sense.
so i admire people who can make grounded stories of the past.

and a flavor of surrealistic freedom like ranfren and mez. though more of something i still wanna work on myself, it's just i subconsciously apply restraint in my approaches. my attempts end up somewhere else or dry and easy to miss.

Result in thread: Anti-spirations!
27th Jun 2020, 3:45 AM #11
User avatar
oh lots of interesting posts...

most of my work is a result of pet peeves or disappointments i've experienced, rather than inspirations consciously acquired in fiction.
my goals fluctuate over the years, but they comb universal creative desires; such as seeing something "different" or "more" of something.

some old or early "anti-spirations":
-juno irritated me at the time of its release. would apply to teen dramas in general.
-oyasumi pun pun is often recommended to me, but i couldn't seem to get through it.
-a short animated video featuring kids breaking into a pool, monsters appear... been awhile. i would see it floating around a lot back then. i didn't like it not for the subject matter, but the demeanor/approach/style of it.
-the '95 movie kids. similar case with the previous point.

they all have a level of pretense i can't quite describe, but they're not necessarily bad. enough to make me try to amend or understand internal conflicts i developed, and produce an output that alleviates those symptoms.
i don't really think about the stuff i listed anymore, but those are some of the foundational blocks.

Result in thread: Thoughts on Tapas

I prefer Tapas as a mirror if we're comparing it to Webtoons.

It's friendlier if your comic format goes page by page rather than sausage, has a better system for uploading+notifications, and doesn't have a mandatory rating and JPEG arrangement (for now...).

Webtoons' comment sections are nightmarish; Everyone there is like a gesticulating ghost that may or may not be acknowledged. You as a creator, wouldn't know unless you revisit your own pages.
Unless all of that has changed, I haven't been there for awhile.
Tapas has a spambot problem from time to time, if you received a notification but don't see it on your page, it's likely the problem has been dealt with.

Neither are good for mature comics, but I feel more leeway on Tapas. Webtoons seems to have a lot more children on there; even if a comic has a warning, I hear concerns from creators.
I've gotten used to browsing on Tapas as long they don't remove their infinite scrolling again. Webtoons is too much of a hassle for me.
I remember reading about their muddy TOS language in the past, which seems to be amended. I don't plan to earn money through there, so I can't comment on that.

Their recent change to Trending seems to contain a consistent list of comics. It used to span for pages which change every hour or so. You may find something different on their curated sections.
Not a fan how psychologically roundabout it feels to find their recently updated comics, as someone who likes to find something new or interesting. You're tempted to scroll down until you find the section, or click "Discover" to... discover comics... But you have to click "Comics" and then "Fresh".

As for community - The Tapas forums are active, and some of the people behind the site are communicative. They responded to feedback to the recent layout edit among other things.

I have enough people who prefer to read my comic on Tapas, so I'll keep uploading there. I'm always on a lookout for another viable mirror, but I also don't have a lot of energy, haha.

sorry for the delay! been meaning to check your comic for awhile and got the chance to do so. very fun and intriguing! loved seeing the thought put in the work... !
i've put yours here: http://seluda.com/links let me know if you'd prefer a different panel to represent your comic.

psychological drama is the best i could describe right now, haha. if you want to maintain the format you can use this slight edit:
"A boy suffers from mental illness and a fate otherworldly in origin." (Psychological drama)

these are fun! love seeing changes and progress.
the current character designs for my comic were conjured around 2008, so my biggest accomplishment of the previous decade would be starting the comic lol.

reddog f.13:my other issue is i had my archives show little preview thumbnails if you hovered over the page numbers, but now only shows a mini white box next to the cursor. the closest ive got into looking for a fix is possibly rigging srunk versions and linking them to show, but i really rather avoid going through shrinking 200 pages. DX

Maybe belated; but I have a preview that shows up on hover on my archives page. It took some time for me to figure it out, especially that building layouts are not my forte. Using Firefox + checking and tinkering the source helped.
Most likely this is what I used to set it up: https://github.com/alanphoon/jquery-live-preview
You will be uploading extra files. Most of the code will be placed under "Overall" and a class tag in "Archive" I believe.

On average, from sketch to finish, around 12 hours. More or less. Depending on health, mood, complexity. Not accounting time spent looking for references and writing/editing.
I like to use this little app to keep track when I draw. Helps figure out my times.
