k, um, this message is in response to xepher's post to say that yes, I am still interested. Also, I have begun uploading my new comic pages for Alternate on DA, so you can follow the link in the above post to see what I have if you're interested. If need be, I can set up a temp site for Dream Sequence since SynthRice is still down at the moment.

okay, so my current webpage is down once again, so for reviewing purposes, here are some back-up sites with my art in case Synthetic Rice is still down by the time I get evaluated.
click on 'piggy oekaki' and/or 'showcase oekaki', then search for 'frodobaggins455'

Message in the applications post said something about posting a comment if one is still interested in being considered for, so this is the reply to say that yes, I am still interested.

Thanks! yeah, I'm working up a new layout currently that's significantly less "omg-my-eyes-are-bleeding" sort of color ^_____^, so hopefully that will alleviate some of the problems

Your art is lovely! I especially like how you apply screentones, you really capture form and shadow well with them ^__^ *thumbs up*

Actually, the layout was inspired by hot gimmick! *give Nat-chan a cookie*

oh, sorry about the link thing, but griever figured it out, so I suppose it's all good. I'm glad you enjoyed my art though! If you would like to see the art on ponju still, you can find it by either going to Piggy Oekaki or Showcase oekaki and typing 'frodobaggins455' into the search. I have some things posted there that aren't on the site yet.

Hey, I'm FrodoBaggins455. I'm new around here, but I've seen some webpages hosted by xepher, and I thought the idea of an art focused independent webhost was a pretty sweet idea, so I thought you might be a good match for my site.
Synthetic Rice is an already exisitng site at, so if you want to see what I would be putting up here potentially, feel free to stop by and look around. My current webhost can't run the site anymore, so I sort of have to move sometime in the near future. I additionally am a regular at if you want to see additional work. My site is primarily an art/webcomic site where I run my main webmanga 'Dream Sequence' and will soon be running 'Alternate', my other webmanga, of which there is a 2 page preview. Dream Sequence is a fantasy manga focusing on the transition between concious and subconcious identities and will probably get substantially darker as I delve more into Takashi's past (it won't get beyond a PG-13, I assure you). Alternate is an anti-utopian manga about Toshiki, a member of the Red Youth army who understands the lies society is manipulating to control the New Proletariat. His partner Kei is somewhat of a unique character, so I won't reveal to much about him now.
I am particularly interested in xepher as it is ad-less (a definite plus, I think ads detract from the overall aesthetic of a webpage and are above all, annoying) and it would give me enough room to write and post my webcomics in the fashion I would like them to be presented without compromising storyline or quality.
