Hey Dedos! I'm stopping by! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>That strip you have for 9-25... haha, I SOOOOO understand where you're coming from! hahaha....<P>Damn you are an innovative guy. I really like how you've structured the panels on Dedos - it reminds me of the way Scott McCloud thinks, except your panels are much more attractive.<P>And your art style rocks! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

Hey man, thanks for stopping by! If anyone reading this hasn't checked out <A HREF="http://www.ponju.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ponju.com</A> , do yourself a favor and go. Now!<P>I'd be lying if I said I wasn't inspired by Scott McCloud. He really helped shake up the way we think about comics as an art form, web comics included. The re-tooling of Dedos to not fit on a page is a tough thing. When everything is on a page, you have borders that you can count on (or even fudge a little if needed). The good thing about the page is the sort of dynamic panel shapes that would emerge when squeezed in to fit. Without that constraint, it's too easy to make a bunch of rectangles and connect them with lines, but that got boring pretty quick. On the same note, with no borders, it's easy to be messy without that regularity. Which is where I think I am right now (but workin' on it). My aim is to make Dedos more dynamic and more involved as a web experience, even if it just means you have to scroll down to see what happens next. And on top of all this, having to actually write the story and draw it can sometimes get lost, which is why I want to take a couple weeks to really concentrate on the story. Without a tale to tell, it's all just window dressing.<P>I also want a new web design, but THAT is a frustratin' exercise. Augh, I'm still trying to design a logo or choose a font. I really like the interface for your site, Henry. It's very intuitive and works very well for your comic and news and very nice header images.<P>Thanks for all the kind words!! This is the kind of stuff that gets my inspiration levels rising. w00t!<P>.c. ^O____O^

hey thanks Dedos - yeah - I'm not super-super happy with my interface - but its getting there - I've been debating whether or not to turn it into a drop-down menu... ooog...<P>But yeah - the header images are my custom design - haha, hate to sound stuck up, but I am pretty proud of them... 8P<P>ANYways, just fyi, you're a friend of pOnju, if that's okay with you:

Thanks, everyone.
I'm doing fine. I just... am having a bit of trouble structuring my comic the way I want. I am not giving up, though! It seems like most comics go through a MAJOR change at the end of a year. I fear I'm in the middle of it.. and a month early! =)<P>I'll post more a little later, to let you know how things are progressing.<P>And Henry, I saw the linkage, THANK YOU!! =)
I promise to return the favor as soon as I get back on this horse.<P>Caleb: I really like the new story that's going on @ highfalutin. Is it gonna last a while?<P>Jazzy: I'm touched (and poked, too). :-) Everything is OK 'round here. Thanks for asking!!

yes! More Dedos would be very cool! Take your time dude - I'd rather wait longer if that means it gets done right! Those links to your site aren't going anywhere... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">

I've been away for a while. What's going on Chris? Well, I hope you are able to resolve all of your problems soon. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> No pressure though. Just don't give up on the comic.<P><P>------------------
