So, I'm at a crossroads. This is straight up new to me. Never been on a forum before, never tried my hand at this. But let's make a go of it.
Welcome to this forum!
I'm pretty simple to figure out-
I've tried my paw at writing when I was younger, but I never went anywhere with it and eventually gave up when I went to college. (At least, gave up on writing for people
... I ended up studying software engineering, so I'm still writing, but for computers.) But what's funny is that over the past few days, I have toyed with the idea of trying to get back into it.
hopeful webcomic creator
Webcomics were kind of how I got into the fandom in the first place - I discovered Faux Pas
and found it from there. In the years since then, I've also taken a liking to a few others. Like my buddy Nathan, I'm a fan of Oren Otter's comics and of Sonichu. I've even considered making my own webcomic, but I never got any good ideas for one. I do like to draw, though, and I'm sure one of my drawings will turn into a little comic at some point.
touch of a world traveler
I've never left North America. Doesn't mean I wouldn't want to visit somewhere else, though!
rabid anthro fan
I'm also a rabid (not literally, of course!) fan of anthropomorphic animals!
Simple, right? *nods head*
Here's another fun fact. Where I live, it's two hours to the nearest Walmart. I'm way, way out in the rural areas of Nebraska.
And I thought I
lived in the middle of nowhere growing up in Vermont... In my current hometown in northwestern Vermont, it's about 20 minutes to the nearest Wal-Mart (and there are two others within an hour's drive either up or down the Interstate), and in the town I go to college in (located somewhere in upstate New York), there's one only a few minutes down the road.
What kind of webcomics do you all read? Any favorite artists, or websites? I'm new to all this, so any tips are welcome.
I read Faux Pas
, Commander Kitty, Housepets!
most of Oren Otter's comics (if only he'd update something other than just Room for One More
- not that I have a problem with Room for One More
), and Sonichu (which is a great example of how not
to make a webcomic - that's why I think it's interesting). I also used to read Kevin and Kell
but got sick of it for multiple reasons and can't really recommend it.
Favorite artists... *checks deviantArt favorites* Here are some of my favorite artists - be warned, some of them may have not-family-friendly/NSFW art, but that's not the art I'm into.
- Mary Mouse (draws excellent toony art).
- Avanii (draws great mustelids).
- Culpeo-Fox (draws the best foxes ever, but can get morbid at times, so be warned).
- Skia (see above - I'm not completely sure if they're actually separate people).
- Temiree (great anthro artist, does some nice Redwall fanart).
- Kipper (not a prolific artist, but draws toony stuff quite nicely).
As for websites, I'm on Weasyl and deviantArt for art, Telegram and Skype for communication (if you have either of these and want to add me, just ask), and on here, of course!
I don't know if you use IRC at all, but we have an IRC channel - see here: http://christianfurs...-using-hexchat/
. You'll sometimes see me on there.
Thank you, one and all!
You're very welcome - nice to meet you, Kito!
