Hmm, yeah, ShoutPro looks good.  I used to have one that looked a lot like that, but it magically broke one day... as things do... >.>  I had several others with varying degrees of success, hence the request for a recommendation.

It takes YEARS of practice to make really good looking comics.  If you're just starting, then just experiment with a lot of different things until you find the tools and methods you like.

Okay... so I have a cute little chatbox, and that's all I want, a cute little chatbox for fans to write their assorted dribble in.  However, the one I have now is hosted god knows where, and the archives part has been hacked into.  So.... I'm thinking I need a different one, preferably one that's more secure.  Any suggestions?

I've been drawing with mechanical pencils since I started college.

I want to buy size 005 pens (disposable).  Anyone know where the best place to get them is?  Bulk discount and good pen quality FTW.

Write a script.  Draw each scene with stick people.  If you have more than one scene, number all the scenes and draw little boxes around them.  Figure out where you want your boxes (panels) to go on your page.  Sketch the panel scenes again on your page, but draw them "for real" this time.  Leave space for the word balloons.  Finish the pencils, ink, and color.

Making Comics by Scott McCloud is a good reference book.

What's your comic, Azraelle?  I see no linky.

I can't think of any sites like this off hand, but I am using a simple script very similar to the single file one... in fact that very one may be one of several scripts I downloaded.

Now the trick will be working on it more than an hour a month.  :p

I started cobbling a site together with regular html and some lightly modified php gallery scripts from  I didn't know how else to handle it since I want to display a number of sets of images that need totally different display parameters... if that makes any sense. It'll make more sense when I'm done. Whenever that is. :P

Quote from: sagebrush on November 16, 2008, 07:30:31 PMI don't know enough to write my own system or do much in the way of modding the php itself,

But maybe someday.

I should sit down and think more about the architecture of it, though.  Maybe I can blunder through something IF I EVER FINISH READING MY PHP FOR DUMMIES BOOK...

I need James to come kick my ass about that. :p

Okay, I want to build a sort of gallery site that shows 1) many single unrelated images, maybe grouped by subject, and 2) several different non updating comics [x pages of sequential art that should be grouped together somehow]. 

I've tried SomeryC and Wordpress/Comicpress so far, and I don't really like either of them.  I don't think I really need comments or a calendar or anything, but I'm not sure yet.  I could put a blog on it, but I don't know if I really want to do that or not yet.  I don't know enough to write my own system or do much in the way of modding the php itself, though altering the layout and CSS is no problem.  I can make minor coding changes if they're pretty obvious/intuitive.  My main concern at the moment is finding something reasonably light that works pretty well and isn't full of security holes or something horrible.

Oh yeah, I don't like Coppermine much either. 

What CMS should I try next?  ???
