I’m going to post this here as a temporary measure since Tumblr keeps sizing down high resolution photographs.



The future of purchasing new games for the Nintendo 3DS

I won a contest on Game Boy Crammer (which it ended last week after 51 episodes) a few months ago just before I recieved and later completed Pokémon Y. I know that there were friend codes and such, but I never added anyone who has a 3DS since I have decided to ditch Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Japanese: Tobidase Doubutsu no Mori / とびだせ どうぶつの森 / lit. “Animal Forest: Jump Out”).

Monopoly Hotels heads for the Deadpool

Me: They got no idea what terrible fury they've just unleashed...

Kaila: Huh?

Me: Monopoly Hotels will be no longer available after October 21st.

Kaila: I don't have this game on my iPhone.

Me: The games was taken off the app stores two weeks ago, and as long as they have it on their device, they will be able to play it before they pull the plug.

Kaila: I still don't have that game, Cory...

Me: And on the film "Big Fat Liar" (the film I saw when I was 12), three young men said "Nice wheels, Shepherd!" [that's actually a girl's bike], and bursts out into laughter, followed by one saying "Freak!".

Kaila: That was before my time.


Vox (the blogging platform)

I was a Vox user from April 10th, 2007, when I was 17 at the time. There were around hundreds of Vox themes (including making their own blog banners), including my Mysims journey over the years. I also had a Pownce account, which it was shut down more than five years ago due to lack of revenue, stagnant growth, and an inability to compete with Twitter.

Converse Aura

The video shows a young woman in her low top Converse All-Star shoes. How does a company showcase to the world how much they are capable of creatively? I don’t draw Chuck Taylors on a character that often anymore, since it’s still okay to draw and wear them, but not good to run in them as the wearer would have flat feet.



High top Sneakers
This is not a shoe blog but I’ve seen this poster that I may add to my collection, but it’s not on Amazon but on Pop Chart Lab. I haven’t been wearing my Adidas Attitude sneakers in a while since I bought the Converse ERX sneakers. I still have my Adidas Superstar sneakers, as I will have to break them out someday.
I still have these Globe shoes, but they are a lot dusty as I have been wearing them to work in summer of 2012 (bought in early 2010). I do not wear Chuck Taylors anymore because I do not wish to get flat-footed. I am still coming up with a name for my second webcomic but I will not use an actual typeface for a logo, but will be handwritten.
I often run in high-tops and Adidas Superstars and not Nike running shoes (I don’t think it would be aesthetically possible to draw these shoes on a character like that, but I still draw Adidas Superstars on a character).
The top row is the Converse ERX 200 (eBay), Adidas Superstar sliver (Amazon), and Adidas Attitude (Shoebacca). The bottom row is the Reebok high tops (Amazon), Globe high tops (Marshalls/T.J. Maxx—“T.K. Maxx” in the UK), and Adidas Superstar red (Amazon).

Advice for Webcomic Artists

Here are the two things that describes a webcomic: Characters, About, and Archives. A characters page is that the characters appear in your webcomic and tells them the information about their personality, what clothes they usually wear, how old they are, and their list of likes and dislikes, and an about page is that what the webcomic is about, including the creator/author’s short bio.

Sagwa Miao Dongwa Miao Sheegwa Miao Sagwa Miao - steps

Sagwa Fan Art - Steps

Note that she is wearing tight cycling shorts under her shorts. There will be more soon. I don’t have the steps for Dongwa, but he gets the tough guy look. I also don’t have the steps for Sheegwa either.



Restoring Your Webcomic’s Audience

Last week I changed the schedule for Red and Kitsune to Thursdays and Saturdays, starting this August and ending on September 30. The comic’s regular schedule is Wednesdays and Fridays. You need to update your comics regularly, rather than keeping your readers waiting, because waiting gets them nowhere. Take occasional breaks if you’re going on vacation.

The anatomy of Red and Kitsune - version 2

It’s been a year since I made the first version, as it was originally drawn using Photoshop’s pen tool, predating the Wacom tablet and Manga Studio. If you’re feeling nostalgic about the Sim games I used to play, there’s an album here and here, as I managed to salvage them last night.

This is a Tumblr-only exclusive post, so I cannot post it on Hatena.
