cactusaurus:That’s a great drawing! I love how the sword/wand appears in front of the runes, it adds some depth! The lighting and pose are also very cool and dramatic :D

I’m terrible at keeping up with this sort of every-day thing, much to my chagrin, but I might pop back here to do a couple of these at random!


Thank you! <3 I didn't put in much detail but I'm glad the general dramatic feel I wanted to get across came through <3

Also don't worry about sticking to it daily - you do you X3

Spellodello:Image

I'm doing my own goretober this year! :D I'm late but kinda forgot October started today

Merged Doublepost:



Under spoilers for blood! Nosebleed


That's a really cool and spoopy prompt list Spellu! X3 That's gonna be real fun~ and I like dat nosebleed, so gritty <3

malaphur:This looks amazing! The lighting's really cool and I love the shape of the cape.

I've managed to come up with something for mmy first prompt. It's basically just a whole bunch of scribbles, but I've settled on a design. I'm trying to be easier on myself and not think "I failed!" just because I didn't make an immaculate, fully-rendered piece of art, especially for monthly challenges like this. I'll probably upload every at the end of the month since daily uploads/log-ins will just be another thing my brain won't wanna do haha.

Good luck everyone!


Thank you! I had fun with the cape shape for sure XD Also, I definitely have been skimping on details and trying not to go overboard for these prompts XD; Like I said to cactusaurus, you do you malaphur! :3 It'll be great ot see anything you wanna post, and you can post whenever you feel comfortable <3

I decided to do another prompt mashup XD this one is "Take a bow." + Enchanted Forest + Burned :3

Thanks malaphur for sharing your prompts! :D Those are great! And I totally get what you mean about blinking and realising it's already mid-October, this is the first year I've managed not to do that XD

For the first day I figured I'd do a mash-up with malaphur's first prompt and my own :3 Rune + Magician = Rune Mage~ was pretty fun to do :D

Hey guys, with just a few days to go until October, I suddenly got all inspired and stuff when I remembered Inktober was coming up. Because like every year I don't realise it's Inktober until we're several days in it and then I feel like because I didn't start properly I never feel like playing catch-up and then I never do it at all and darnit, mind, why you be like this.

Anyway, I thought it'd be cool to look into Inktober this year in advance since I totally remembered beforehand this time, but then I Googled 'Inktober' to get the 2022 prompts and promptly discovered (see what I did there huehue) that there was a kind of controversy with Inktober and I was like oh, maybe I shouldn't go near that hashtag after all...

And then I found out all these cool people started posting their own prompts and stuff for the month of October to kind of make up for it, and I was like oooh, that's kinda cool!

And then I thought hey, why not see if we can do some prompts here as a community at ComicFury? I think Furians could come up with some really cool prompts. Or we can just use this thread to share other prompt lists we've seen for this year that are looking pretty neat. I think it'd be fun to list a whole list of prompts here for October so when that month actually starts we have like, all these choices and inspirations. :D

Here's a prompt list from me to start us off with, a mish-mash of words, phrases and song titles :3 And yes, I know it's all over the place, lol. This is some insight into the chaos that is my brain XD Maybe you guys can come up with a more unified list!

As someone who redrew a good chunk of my first chapter, my suggestion would be to go ahead and replace the comic images on the pages and then add author's notes on pages where things are different or aligned differently to old comments, explaining why for newer readers (or older readers rereading).

I had initially uploaded my comic on DeviantArt (I know, it was a long time ago) so I also posted links to the older versions of the comics in my A/Ns, which I've had readers tell me they appreciate. You could consider doing similarly and sharing links to older versions of the page for clarity and/or nostalgia, maybe :)

That just made me think of this Tweet:

It's actually not funny at all? Will Smith could have killed him with that slap. What if his hand had been full of bees and Chris Rock was allergic to bees and one of the bees stung Chris and nobody had an epipen. Not so funny now is it

Before I start yammering on about colour stuff, can I just say that's a really lovely piece? <3 Those little foxy creatures are so cute! I love how they're holding onto that big fish ride and going on an underwater adventure XD

Onto the colouring side, I think it may be worth talking about colour theory. Do feel free to Google simple tutorials on the subject; for me, personally, I think the first time I read a guide on colour theory it felt overwhelming! So here, I thought I'd go less technical and more simplified just to give you a very general idea to start with.

image

In most digital art colouring programmes, you are usually giving a colour selection tool like the one above (this one from Photoshop) that allows you pick a colour from a range. That range, in short, can be spun into a wheel to produce a colour wheel.

image

The basic tenets of a colour wheel are simple; colours next to each other look good together naturally. Colours opposite each other on the wheel pair together in a complementary way as well. When you bring in light/dark ranges, the colour wheel can be expanded upon like this:

image

A lot of artists to find that this sort of thing comes instinctively to them without needing to look at the technical aspects of it, but I thought it might be useful to look at this from a technical perspective to try and explain how your colour choices appeal to the eye.

I've picked some of the more striking colours off your image and identified their place in the wheel as below:

image

image

image

You'll notice that these are located around the same-ish range, but with a concentration towards the center (lighter or more pastel colours) - but those colours are a mix of your background and foreground pieces.

To make your foreground/background more distinct, you'll want to make one side 'pop' more by distinguishing them apart further. At the moment, the colours all sort of share a similar level of 'pay attention to me~' cries, so the eye doesn't immediately know where to settle outside of the lower part of the fish's head. This is something you may want to play around with more.

Keep in mind that you can also try playing around with the colour of the lineart itself. For example, if you shift the colour of the seaweed outline to a dark green and the bubbles to a dark blue (just examples) you would definitely make the fish and little foxies pop more and mute the background a little in contrast.

If I have anything else to advise, I want to say I really like how you've does the shades - they are quite soft and subtle looking. I'd just advise you to have the courage to go even further and try bolder shades! Sometimes a darker shade to a blue doesn't have to be a darker blue - it can be a dark purple. If you do actually try visiting the 100 palette challenge in my signature, you can see that it's a collection of colour schemes that have been constructed through colour theory, and you can find all the interesting combinations of colours that work together to create a mood or feeling.

Alright, enough yapping from me. Thank you for sharing more of your lovely work! Colouring is a journey and everyone finds their groove over time, and continues to adjust it. My main advice is to not get overwhelmed and to have fun experimenting with it :3 I hope my response isn't scary!

Heylo, I think you have a gorgeous art style and the black and white art looks lovely. You seem to have a very good grasp of how to use black and white to create depth, textures and variations -- it's definitely a strength of yours! That doesn't mean you can't use colour on it, you certainly can. However, you may want to try experimenting a little bit with some the following in mind; I share this from my own experience as once having been a colourist for fun, for a greyscale webcomic.

- When you use black (like hexcode #000000 black) you'll find that you can't go any darker on screen. This can limit your colour palette unless you are deliberately using stark black shadows. The black-coloured fox creature in your image, however, could be shaded a very dark grey instead, to give you more room to mess around with the range of colours. This is a general rule of thumb to follow in all colouring: use light grey as a base for whites and very dark grey as a base for blacks, so you have more room to mess around with light/dark shades.

- Speaking of light, it seems in your image - based on the background - you've worked with the general idea that the light is coming from above (normal under the sea lol). This is the light source, and when you add colour to things, you can absolutely emphasise this. Adversely you can play around with it; for example, if you wanted the coelacanth to glow, it could become a light source instead and add an interesting element to the shading. The strength of the light source can affect how dark or long the shadows become.

- And that brings me to the concept of shading. Shading is one of the ways colouring a piece can have extra depth. You can use hard edges for a more clean and cel-shaded look, or a soft brush for a more airbrushed and blended look, or so many different kinds of brushes for that extra depth. Digital colouring now has a lot of different brushes and filters you can play around with. Never be afraid to experiment, as two different people choosing to colour the same image can come up with two different ways to colour it. :3

A couple of examples that I quickly did to show you a bit better what I mean (a picture says a thousand words):

image

I painted over the blacks of the creature with a dark grey to act as a new base on a separate layer, and shaded it on top of that with a hard brush with the light source coming from above. Deciding there wouldn't be a lot of light, I chose not to put much light on the creature, which is why it's mostly dark.

image

This is the same image above, this time with some fun effects and filters thrown on to add to the watery atmosphere. Nothing too crazy - you could definitely refine this a lot - but I hope it shows just one example of what you can do with digital colours. :)

Oh MST3K, I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. I know you how much you loved him, and he you.

Please don't hesitate to accept all the support you can during this time of grief.

The things that can haunt us most after a passing are our regrets and guilt. I do encourage that you let the questions out and process through them, don't bottle it up, but also know that you couldn't have known and forgive yourself, in time.

Much hugs over the Internet, friend. ;-;*

A dear reader of mine created a server for my webcomic Serpamia Flare, so he mods it (though I have moderator permissions). Most of the channels on the server are dedicated towards non-webcomic related things however, lol. I've gotten to know my readership better through the Discord community, and sometimes set a time for people to come together on voice chat so we can game together. :3

I also have Discord-related incentives up on my Patreon and post special content in one of the supporter-only channels, so you can consider how you'd like to utilize that functionality whenever you decide to launch a Discord.

I am so, so sorry MST3K. It's so unbelievably rough that this has to happen around the same time. I don't have the words, but you are in my thoughts and prayers for love and comfort. I'm sure your dad will at least be happy to come home. ;_;

Hey Roux <3 ^-^ I think it's amazing you're able to keep thinking about your story and comic with a baby, so don't let life feel like it's dragging you down!

I wanted to share with you what it's been like for me personally with sketches. I tried sharing sketches on Patreon before finished pages went up as an incentive, believing that people would want to get the story beforehand. Here's what I learnt from it:

* While seeing it in sketch form was interesting to a degree, people felt the sketch page 'spoiled' their experience of reading the comic. They would rather read the page when it's finished.

* The sketches weren't nearly as clear as I thought they were. They looked clear to *me*, because I obviously drew them, and since the dialogue is what it is shouldn't it be really obvious who is saying what and come on I *clearly* identified who was speaking in this panel with the squiggle there to indicate the curly hair, and... lol, what I learnt was that readers spent far more time being confused and trying to figure out what was going on in the sketches, rather than actually reading the comic page for what it was.

* Things change from sketches to inks. Sometimes radically. Which can be interesting for people to compare, but I realised that it also sometimes made me regret posting a sketch of something I realise only when it comes to inking looks really bad/confusing. Which means I subjected people to it at a stage that maybe I shouldn't have?

I do understand your feeling of wanting to get your story out there. When we do the maths of how long it might take for a whole story to get out, it can be shocking to see the timeline. So if posting the sketches will make you feel better about getting it out and giving people the option to see the story at least while you're unable to finish pages, I think that's fine. That Hunter x Hunter dude sends out rough pages looking like total butts sometimes in the final published works and people still gobble it up, haha. Story trumps the polish of the final work, honestly.

But I wanted to also share my two cents with you to potentially prepare you for what kind of feedback you might get. I could be totally wrong and people will not complain because your sketches are infinitely better than mine XD but yeah, this was my experience posting WIP sketches and I ended up removing that incentive from Patreon and doing other things instead.

I'm so sorry to hear this MST3K. Your dad really has been through so much but he's lucky to have you. Will keep him in thoughts and prayer, and also you, since you are obviously under a ton of heavy emotions. Please do update us. ;-;*

This is going to age me, but I started publishing works on the Internet at a time when actually getting feedback wasn't really a thing, lol. You put a fanfic or piece of art up on some scrappy looking website with a counter, and generally got your kicks out of knowing that your work was being seen at all. I think I received an email like, ONCE about a fic that was really encouraging and it made me happy! But that was super rare at the time.

Fast forward to a time when I started publishing works on platforms like Deviantart, and the whole concept of comments and faves was quite instantly gratifying. It was super nice to hear feedback on works. But, like, it wasn't really my goal I guess. Maybe it's a generational difference? I started a lot of comic work during a time people would hand-make comic books and hand out stapled photocopies at local comicbook shops. The push for immediate social interaction of the sort we see as a norm now wasn't really there. It was about getting your works out there and known by others.

I love comments as much as the next webcomic artist, but I also want to encourage people not to base the 'success' of their comic around them. The reality is that content creation is hard work, and may not be immediately appreciated, but you get what you work for: content that will still be there, sometimes for years and years, that people can look at and enjoy later on even if not now. That said, if you are really doubtful of your comic's quality due to low engagement, CF does have a constructive criticism forum for people who may want more advice on that front.

There is a bit of a line between social engagement and content engagement; sometimes the line blurs, especially in this day and age. But it might be best to keep in mind that a successful mix of the two is what tends to create communities. And engaging content comes first.

These are great Jessie Blue! :) Thank you for putting in the time to make them!

I made my own button using a character from my webcomic so I realise I can't really offer it for other people's use... orz But I thought I'd note that I'd done this thing in case other people may be inspired to do something similar if they so wish :3

I don't know if it's on Crunchyroll but a recent one I watched and really liked was Vivy's Fluorite Eye Song. The animation was astounding on top of having a thought-provoking story to tell.

When someone says "terrible anime" the first thing that pops into my mind is this isekai anime my friend trolled me into watching about a boy who gets sucked into an MMO with his young and busty mother.

Let's just say this stuff was truly brain staining. Never getting back my 20 minutes of life (and never watching more than that first episode)... :')

Edit: You know, I just realised my Wikipedia link is broken but maybe that's for the best
