General Chat / Reasons beyond me.

So, my main computer is a laptop. It's a decent laptop, it can play my games and such.... well. It used to. Now, half the motherboard is burned out, and I have about eightybillion fricken viruses. I need to send it in (I'm still under warenty, and it covers it) but I have to pay shipping. So I havent done it yet, because, being the american I am, I'm lazy as can be. Thus, I havent created/uploaded any of my comic that I mentioned before because I've been fighting virus after virus. Sorry that I dissappeared for a while (I dont think anyone even really knows who I am.) but I'm going to dissappear again for a short while, for I am FINALLY sending this computer in for repairs next monday, when I have the money for it. Maybe I'll draw, but till then, tah tah for now.

I agree with fesworks, but I also think that there is a greater power, not necessarily an all knowing being or a God, but something else.

http://htmlhelp.com/ I find to be quite useful. They have the best element/style reference guide, so I always go there when I forget exactly what options go with what elements. I'd like to suggest something good for PHP, but it's been so many years since I really followed tutorials that it's invalid. Now I'm usually needing help with something very specific, which I just google for, or just looking up the language reference on php.net itself.

As an aside... note to self: Build Artica like you mentioned years ago!

Wow, I just read both links. If there's anything I can do to help, by all means ask (Just dont ask for coding, I'm still new to it, I just know enough on how to read and re-write it into my own shape and design.)

Well, I'm sorry to say, I am going to deny this. Like Fes said, you've got nothing much to show, and your art skills are self-admittedly poor. It's obvious your just starting out with art, and so you've got a lot of room for improvement. You're welcome to reapply 6 (or more) months from now if you feel you've improved, or otherwise have more to show.

I thank you for taking the time to look at my humble request, and I do hope to one day be accepted, but until that day, this will have to suffice:
http://lifewithoutlife.smackjeeves.com/

I'm going to change the layout when I have time, they have a spot to where you can custom make your site (HTML).

Before I even looked at this tonight, I decided that if it falls through now, it'll be ok. I'll use this Smack Jeeves site for a little while, then once I've built up a decent archive of comics, to reapply here. Hopefully then, I'll have enough knowledge on HTML to be able to make a site fully functional (Graphics and all). Thank you for your time, and I'll still stick around. Once my comic starts off, I'll start a new thread and put the link in, and you guys can, by all mean, tell me what I'm doing wrong and such.

Oh, and I do have this to say: Even if I get denied, I will try to stick around. Looking at what's been posted thus far, you guys have interesting things to say. I hope to add to that "interestieness" one day.

Well, to be honest, I think it'd be best if you had more to present before you actually get an account. You have 4 art images and too many future plans, with nothing substantial.
True, but the reason as to why I only have 4 art images is because of 2 things. 1) All of my artwork that I had done was either too incomplete, to badly drawn, or lost. 2)The few images that I do have that I can use, I have problems with the scanner with them (Like the Vespa, that's only 1/4 of the full art) and I only have access to a scanner for short periods of time. But if I have my own web page, then I have reason to actually buy a scanner.

For the coding, as proof of the little skill I have, I'll make a mock webpage code. Right now, though, I only have Notepad because my computer faltered and I have to send it in for repair, the mother board is faulty. Running Microsoft Word really hurts my computer right now. I hope to send it in next week. I do have a back up computer, but it is incredibly slow (It's a 2000 model with terrible specs. 400MB processor FTW!) and I'm not even sure if it has Word on it. The CD rom drive is busted on that one.

I'll have the code up either friday or saturday with my work schedual.

The grape one was kinda cool, and makes me want to try it, but I dont want to ruin my microwave. The NSFW one was really funny, and looking at some of the comments made me laugh.

Here's two "Scientifically inclined" vids I found.

Hello. I like what your doing here, and I've been looking for a decent host for the comic that I would like to do. I came upon this site from one of the comics I read, Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures. After reading the "Instructions (Read before posting)" thread, I decided to give my luck a go. Onward to battle I suppose.

Alrighty then, lets discuss my Inability to draw. I'm working on my art work, and I figured "Hey, looking back at some other peoples web comics, their first bit of archives are really.... bad, just like how I am now. I wonder, if I start a comic, will my art work improve over time like everyone Else's? I hope so."

Here are my only examples of my artwork. http://truealchiemist.deviantart.com/gallery/#_browse

yes, I know, it's not that bad, but you haven't seen my attempt at drawing people. I hope to one day be a great artist, but for now, I'll settle with practice.

I do have some skill in the ways of HTML coding, and I have a very large book that teaches one to read and write in HTML (About 630 or so pages) and I have done some HTML coding myself, but nothing have I posted.

Username: lifew/outlife

Website name: lifewithoutlife

My email: mcdermott.thomas@gmail.com

Site Description:
Well, it will be a webcomic, with full archives of previous comics (Like any other webcomic) and will hopefully one day have downloads such as backgrounds and icons and the like. Underneath the comic will be a place for me to post things like what's to come and any reason as to why I stopped uploading or something of that case. There will probably be an external link to a proboards forum that will let the readers discuss things like what's going to happen next and whatnot. Also, I was hoping to add in a page of some stories that I write every once in a while.

What the comic itself will be about: It sets place in a city like New York, New York, and the main character (Whoe's name I haven't decided on) loses his girlfriend, his job, his apartment, and in the end, his life. But he wakes up in a foreign land, full of monsters and magic. There he meets up with a lookalike of someone familiar, but he cant remember who it was. The two start a grand adventure to find the rare material called Escoda so as to forge the mightiest weapons imaginable to stop the antagonist who I haven't really developed thus far. Along there way to the first town, they meet up with Pip, the Gnome Illusionist. Later on, they meet up with Gerald, who incidentally is actually working for the bad guy. On their way, they meet up with probably 1 or 2 more characters who join their quest to stop the evil (Still haven't decided on what the evil will be and what he's doing that so...evil) before it is too late. More to come as I think up of more.

I believe that The Challenge is in order, so by all means, Xepher, ask away.

Oh yeah, before I forget: I will make a "backstock" of comics so that I don't fall behind too much, and I'll update twice a week, once on Monday and once on Friday (Saturday morning because of my job may interfere)

EDIT: Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that one day, if this comic becomes slightly popular, I hope to sell merchandise related to the comic. Also, is it ok if we sell banner space to other web comics?
