Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 11, 2018




So there's a lot of talk and discussion on how to approach the creation of your webcomic (or novel, or short story) regarding planning out your plot, the degrees of planning out, and the option of flying by the seat of your pants.

I have done both, both in ...

Imprinting on Characters

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Aug. 10, 2018



The other day, I was discussing my creative process to a poor, unsuspecting soul, who, to their credit, seemed content to put up with a bit of a ramble. They had mentioned that they enjoyed the facial expressions of the characters in our comics, (I did mention they were super ...

Making Bad Guys Intimidating

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 4, 2018

Proving Your Progressiveness?

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 30, 2018



Yesterday, Mks_Monsters asked me to talk about an experience of hers, which I have seen being shared with a range of creators belonging to certain social groups (female, LGBTQ, POC, etc) if their occasional tweets on the matter are to be believed: That support for them on the basis of ...

Quackcast 379 - Troptastic

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, June 19, 2018

LISTEN!

ALL the tropes!!!!
Based on Emma Clare's newspost, tropes are damn useful but they can also be your undoing if you handle them badly. Tropes are shortcuts to meanings, scenes, procedures or jokes that take too long to set up in their own right. You can use them ...
