Re: Your summer bargains

(I did buy a trumpet in online auction, but I can't blow to save my life) I used to play the trombone, and the method to blow is fairly similar to a trumpet. It's like blowing a raspberry using only your lips (essentially pursing your lips together and forcing air through them, creating a "Phbt!" s...

Your summer bargains

It is summer, and (at least for me) that means YARD SALES!!! Fancy that! I seem to have epic luck, such as getting a vintage stereo system for a grand total of $ 1-erm- I need to invest an additional $10.75 for a new needle for the record player, if I ever get Paypal working, but considering the rec...

Re: Webpage Redesign (I want opinions please)

I think this looks really good. The text in the buttons should be centered, though, obviously, and "current page" can fit on one line. Also, don't forget your "hosted on Comic Genesis" footer, or the Webcomic Police might arrest you. You might also wanna consider adding that 150x300 "newsbox" ad so...

Re: Webpage Redesign (I want opinions please)

Been a while. I've done some fiddling to a new color scheme that fits with that blue comic genesis banner on the top (I haven't updated the advertisement banner yet though XD) Less ugly. Less is more, yes? http://i758.photobucket.com/albums/xx229/GMer56/NewWebpagelayout2.jpg Created in GIMP. I haven...

Re: Mr, Ms, and Thing ComicGenesis Pageant 2012!

So, coming home from college has permitted me some free time: time to work on an entry and begin to get my comic out of its hiatus of derp. http://i758.photobucket.com/albums/xx229/GMer56/Winter_entry.jpg In case you're wondering, the comic begins in early April 2031. I need to make a better website...

Re: I'll review your webcomic.

You know, I was just thinking - there's so much drama and flaming going on in this thread whenever you rip someone to pieces, but I can't help but think so much of it could have been avoided if you had a little more truth in advertising in your subject heading. Instead of "I'll Review Your Webcomic...

Re: Mr, Ms, and Thing ComicGenesis Pageant 2012!

Thirded! I should have mentioned the cereal box is pretending to be a normal cereal box, at least in the few frames it appears (maybe it'll show up during an acid trip). What company in their right mind would make a cereal called "Magic O's"? Obviously the cereal named itself. It also would explain...

Re: Mr, Ms, and Thing ComicGenesis Pageant 2012!

When is the deadline? After 19 pages, the main characters in my comic have finally met (well, tomorrow they'll meet), so I'm rarin'' to go. However, no "things" have appeared in the comic yet, unless you count the fellow reminiscent of Gendo Ikari or a cereal box, so I guess I'm out in that category...

Re: Webpage Redesign (I want opinions please)

I feel like colored and textured backgrounds call for colored comics. I plan on coloring the comic. Just finally got the tools and the know-how to successfully do so. Thanks to LazyNezumi, a general purpose drawing stabilizer doohicky. Unless you can do one of those cool things where they only appe...

Someone spammed this thread with 5 advertisements about I phones, so I reported them and they are gone now :)

Webpage Redesign (I want opinions please)

So I finally have my webcomic off the ground, but I find my webpage kinda minimalist at the moment, as it contains nothing but the comic itself. I figured I'd spruce it up a bit when I have some more pages done. Here's the redesign I got so far after looking at a few of the successful webcomics and ...

Re: Does anyone know this comic?

This comic sounds interesting, I'm gonna try to find it. Did a keyword search on google, found this topic somewhere on the second page ^_^ If all else fails you can always head to the armpit of the internet. Or get hook a cell phone to a microwave and travel through time. Either way, its going to be...

Re: Mr & Miss ComicGenesis Contest

Hey, I'd be interested. Of course, my webcomic hasn't actually launched yet. Working on making a month's worth of pages (3 pages a week, hopefully) before the launch, on March 9th... of course then there's my Guyver costume I'm working on for Anime Boston too :-?

Re: I'll review your webcomic.

I'd ask you to review mine, but I just barely started designing the webpage (learning about the tags and stuff), never mind posting the comic itself. Maybe in a month, but by then you probably would be busy :D

Re: Introduction Thread - Welcome to the New and Old

Hello. I am Metal Solstice, but on Deviantart I'm known as Akanoyoru which is romanji for "red night" (I loved the Anime "11 eyes"), and at one point I was known to the game making community as "GMer56". Needless (I still need to finish that anime) to say, I enjoy a good anime and read manga, and as...
