Hehehe...I can't decide. My online identities have been CobaltWyrm --> Electrolemming --> Scientivore --> SciVo. Maybe a cobalt blue dragon (with trendy glasses, natch) or a TRON-style lemming cyborg? Or...a cobalt blue TRON-style dragon lemming! Heh, yeah.

Oh yeah, I think I've heard of that trait, "Starving Artist" or something.

My imagination fails me! I therefore humbly request a headshot.

Oh, and I'll probably call myself SciVo on the new forum.

Say -- I can't remember if I've asked this before -- what program do you use for lettering? I'm interested in how you achieve such neat effects.

Another option: Paint Shop Pro. Reviews of the newer versions are mixed, but I know that Rob Balder used PSP X (the 2005 version) to letter Erfworld (as of April).

[2007 Dec 21] In which a fire demon gets pwned by gravity...

...the impersonal force of nature, not the webcomic, natch.

That's some pretty art there, man.

Has anyone here used Balloonist? It's a specialized app for word balloon editing and panel layout. Looks interesting.

Bright and cheery, not eye-hurty. I'm on a two-monitor setup, using a big old CRT as a second screen for a shiny new laptop. Everything is darker and bluer on the CRT -- doubtless its phosphors have degraded -- but it's not too bright on the laptop LCD either. Maybe your screen at work is set too br...

Todd Klein's website is a fascinating place for exploring this question. There, you'll find tutorials for hand-lettering well (which looks like a pain in the butt to me), along with the revelation that he has computer fonts of his standard lettering for convenience.

Almost two months late to this topic, sorry. There might still be interest in it, though? Note: I'm not a webcomicker, just a megafan of the medium. I've also made a lot of fanmixes of various webcomics, since I can't draw but I can find my way around Photoshop Elements or GIMP. I don't know about e...

Unwanted trivia: the hardest part for me was doing the bottom speech balloon in the first panel in NJ's style, combining several elliptical bubbles (like the top balloon). When working with a relatively large (for the scale of the panel) block of text like that, I'd normally just do a rectangular bu...

Have you considered advertising there yourself, Bean? I'm always appalled by how low PD is at TopWebComics. I think that your writing and art are good enough to be more popular, they just need more publicity. Maybe somewhere else if DD doesn't feel like a good fit to you?

Ah! I thought that was a window at first, instead of a painting.

Incidentally, I recently found out (in the commentary under the Director's Cut of the Narbonic guest strip "Dave's Blind Date") that Derek Kirk Kim has recently moved to Portland. I assume Shaenon means Oregon.

It's clear here that he's crying, although strangely a little harder to see on my crisp, bright laptop screen than on my old, darkening CRT.

I didn't realize what a big deal it was to get in with Tokyopop. I can say that Sokora Refugees was a pretty cool story with vigorous art and memorable characters. Their goodbye was cryptic and brief -- pretty much all that it said was that they weren't going to explain it -- and then poof, gone. :(...

No, didn't read that one. Of abandoned webcomics, I remember Sokora Refugees as having one of the worst-timed halts of any, apparently right in the middle. It's in the strange position of still having books on Amazon while its website is long gone. Anyway, Beyond Reality is already back in one of th...
