Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Comic Creators Thread: Ways to Stay Motivated, Creative, and Productive?
Supposedly, every comic fan thinks he or she can be a creator. Last summer, the GV Tournament turned a bunch of us comic fans into creators, even if for a short time, and we saw some real talent exposed. This talent may have been dormant in the intervening months, so this thread aims to kick start the creative engines and get everyone back to creating comics. And thanks to the internet, it's never been a better time to be a creator.
This thread is for anyone who is now or aspires to be a creator of comics, where we can all talk shop. Discuss your big new idea or show off artwork. Pimp that new webcomic you've started. Debate scripting style and effective pitches, or try to find a like-minded creator to work with you on your project. Whatever it is, this thread should be a jump off point for wannabe creators to get motivated and moving, and a sounding board for people already creating. Advice from pro or semi-pro creators would be appreciated.
Just a warning though: there's no guarantee that your non-copyrighted or non-trademarked idea won't be poached by an unscrupulous person, so be careful what you post.
