Art / Roland - Transformed

Art submission number 2: Roland in her "second" state. I wasn't sure if I should start a second topic for this or update my old one, so if the latter is more appropriate please let me know.

So here she is, Crit welcomed but not required ;D
Art / Chow + drawing = this thread

yay, an art thread.

If you've seen this on my devArt, forgive me. I'm proud of it, and I like to get crit since as much as I love DA, it's more of a lovefest over there when you post something, even when you ask for critique.

actually, I'm just saying hello to all you wonderful xepher peoples, letting you know:

A) not dead yet

B) I've got some stuff brewing for the comic

C) I've wrangled a friend of mine who's like a web ninja (this comming from someone with pretty solid web skills, or skillz if you prefer) to be my web dude, which means I can do more of the whole drawing/writing thing.

D) I got a "big boy" job at the university I attended so I'm pretty busy, but no homework (at least 'til fall) means more comic time...

To summarize (after making you read all that, no less): Hi everyone, I missed you.

-more to come
Applications / Joystick Ink

Current site location:

Joystick Ink is a(nother) web comic that I use to bring some of the random and humorous ideas that pop into my head to life. Most of the comic "issues" follow the adventures of Chow and Andy, the main characters. On occation (also, for most of the early issues) I do stand-alone issues, but more and more I've been trying to build some continuity with a running plot. As of late I have been updating on the weekends, but sometimes I just don't have the time. Still, I am slowly making my way to the once-a-week schedule.

Currently, I'm hosting the site from my student webspace at school, but I would like to the move away from the long, hard to remember URL, and I am already shopping for domains. I've been reading DMFA for a while now, as well as JAWC, so when I noticed the Xepher box I came over to the site and fairly began foaming at the mouth at the idea of a decent, well-mannered, no commercial/banner/pop-up/spam-farm hosting service. If it's good enough for those sites, it's more than good enough for mine.

So, I know you may be thinking "another buddy-comic...whee..... :/ " But I believe that as long as a story is interesting enough to read, it should be available for the reading. That's why I've been shying away from the "video-game comic" feel of the site. I love gaming, but the battle to tell the same joke about a new game each week will be just as epic without my contribution thank you. Instead, I want to explore my ability to tell a story and grow characters over time, and I want to be able to make those stories available to the web community as a whole.

personal notes:
-I'm embarassed about the art in the early comics...I know everyone starts somewhere...but geeeze! Anywho, no need to waste typing time on letting me know about them.

-The FAQ page may give you a decent feel of my writing/creativity or, conversely, my lack of it. That's up to you to decide.

-Excited as I may be, over the thought of being green-lighted, I look forward even more to any critique you guys have for me. It's hard for me to judge my own site accurately, I believe.
