Site description:
If I'm approved, I plan to use my site as a personal art gallery mainly, and also post my upcoming webcomic there.

I wish to have a site of my own other than deviantart so I can make it look exactly how I want. I've had an art site in the past, but it was paid hosting and unfortunately as a budget-consciencious college student, I can't afford it anymore and had to let it expire.

I'm well experienced with HTML and I'm starting to learn how to build websites using Flash which is pretty awesome with all the things you can do. I'm studying graphic design (although illustration is my real passion) so making a website look good is easy and fun for me.

As for the content, like I said, it will be a gallery of my artwork primarily. I'm not really sure how to elaborate on that but I've included a link to my deviantart page in the examples at the end. I'd also like to include a section for tutorials I've made.

I also want to post my webcomic on it once it gets started. I'm working on it with a friend and we're still in the process of writing it but once we're at the drawing stage (should be in a month or so) I plan to update it about once per week. It's going to be a 1-3 chapter one-shot comic, and the plot is about a detective named Beck who's father dies from a drug overdose and leaves behind a debt which Beck eventually gets killed over. He enters an afterlife where he is reunited with his father who is still an addict and needs to continue to pay off his debt with Beck's help so he gets sent back to the living world as a ghost. During the day he continues being a detective because no one else knows he's dead yet, and during the night he haunts people as his ghost job to help pay off the debt. My friend is doing most of the writing so she'd be much better at explaining it, but that's it. I'll be doing most of the art, and again, samples of my comic work are among the examples. Oh, and there will be violence and some depictions of drug use but it won't be anything worse than what you'd see on TV.

Examples:

My deviantart
Self-explanatory. Has my artwork on it.

Windmill
My old webcomic. I lost interest in this due to poor story planning, but when I was working on it I was fairly consisitent and enjoyed it. The style of my new comic will be like the later pages of this only darker.

Thank you very much!

Sorry it took me so long to get to this. As you may or may not know, there was a big fiasco with the server at the start of the month, and I forgot there were applications pending. I've taken a look at your stuff now, and it looks pretty good. If you're still interested, let me know, and I'll setup the account.

Never heard back, so I'm locking this. Open a new thread if you want to reapply.
