Find a book by Scott McCloud called "Making Comics", read it, be enlightened. Or find an online .pdf, who cares.

It's quite a helpful book. By no means should it be your only source of advice (opinions based off of one source tend to be incomplete or flat out wrong), but I would definitely read it if I had no idea what the hell I was doing.

Yes, the Making Comics book is a compilation of a ton of sources already, the bibliography for it is two pages long, bite me.

Hmm...Your offer intrigues me. Is it an entertaining read at least? I like my source material to be entertaining as well, but I guess in my condition, whether reference material is entertaining or not is not applicable. Any advice would be well appreciated.

I don't think they're really that stupid.

For some reason people think it's okay to ask artists to provide they skills for free as if they have no real value. If you were a carpenter and every day your shop was visited by people who wanted you to build them a fence but didn't want to pay you to do so you would probably tell them to gtfo.

It's insulting that people devalue a skill that has taken you many hours to develop when they would never treat a lawyer or a chef or a plumber that way. If artistic skill really had no value then it would be fine but if that were the case there wouldn't be so many people coming here to ask for it (for free). I can't blame anyone for being a little angry about it.

I just don't see the point in responding to request threads you're not interested in. At all. If you feel insulted by the fact that the guy takes artists for granted, well, that's too bad. Just remember that your actions reflect on the forums as a whole.

I mean for the love of God, do you go around looking for job postings in the newspaper, and then call those jobs to tell them in an abbrassive and haughty tone why you think their job posting sucks and why you're not interested in working for them? Of course not, because it's completely ridiculous.

The lack of replies to their request thread is a strong enough message, and even THEN, just because no one's posted on the actual thread, doesn't mean the OP didn't get any PMs from interested parties.

Am I the only one who loves the new Collabinator feature. If all goes well this should solve any of these stupid request threads. Once that thing really gets off and running, we can just start referring requests to it instead of acting like a bunch of asshats. Hell eventually it might become popular enough that people just stop submitting stupid requests all together because they know to go there first.

What.

Is the fact that it's about a lesbian romance some sort of punchline in your comic?

Nah, not really. I was just teasing. The ultimate point of the comic is to tell the story of a lesbian wild-child (not wild as in tomboy-ish, but rather, someone who likes to fool around...A lot).

My thing is why isnt there just one big request thread, stickied or not? Or why arent all requests moved to the collaboration forum? I mean it isnt that big of a deal but it might make the forum more arty and less 1 post wonder wants an entire project for free. The only problem to doing that would be making the entire forum like 90% less active. lul.

been tried, never gets used, sinks to the bottom, gets forgotten by the regs, and the newbs don't know/think to look for it.
sadly, not trying to be mean here, but your line there kind of proves my statement...

Damnit. I didn't want in this discussion .Can we go back to talking about cooking up some more soda, or at least the adobe thing....

Yeah, I just found out about it. It seems really cool. It's a really unique and useful feature.

I don't see a way to take your "advertisement" down actively. I suspect it's probably because i haven't made one yet though.

It also might be a nice idea to have a reputation system like ebay does so you can see if people keep bailing on there partners. If there were a way to prevent it from being abused that is.

I think making your own soda (or pop as many as many of us Canadians call it) is a totally insane idea. I would have never even considered the possibility on my own but now I really want to try it.

I did a quick google search for a homemade Dr. Pepper recipe and instead stumbled upon a list of the 23 flavors it's made up of. Wow. That is some brew... Tomato? Really?

1. Amaretto
2. Almond
3. Blackberry
4. Black Licorice
5. Carrot
6. Clove
7. Cherry
8. Caramel
9. Cola
10. Ginger
11. Juniper
12. Lemon
13. Molasses
14. Nutmeg
15. Orange
16. Prune
17. Plum
18. Pepper
19. Root Beer
20. Rum
21. Raspberry
22. Tomato
23. Vanilla

A little known fact about Orn: This colour matching challenge game is actually his second favorite game of all time.

His absolute favorite is the one where you put wooden pegs of various shapes into the appropriately shaped hole.
