Write the rules in the journal entry if you are tagged.
Write 13 things about yourself.
Answer 13 questions made by then person who tagged you.

13 things about me:

1. I've been playing games for as far back as I can remember. I don't even remember the first game I played.

2. I do know that the first computer I ever used and played games on was the Amiga though. I love that machine.

3. I'm a programmer, I've even recently made an adventure game for a contest. The game is called The Adventure of the Hero. Look it up.

4. I was waiting for that Deadpool film to come out for over SIX FREAKING YEARS!!! Worth the wait though. :)

5. My favourite film is Beetlejuice.

6. The top three games I've spent the most time on are: Seven Kingdoms, Dwarf Fortress, and Minecraft, in that order. And there is a huge difference between how long I've played each game. That should give an idea just how long I've played Seven Kingdom for.

7. I was home educated, or home schooled if you prefer.

8. I don't like drawing. I only learnt myself how to draw because I highly doubt anyone would want to draw my comics for me.

9. My sister was the one who first got me to go onto deviantART .

10. I use proper grammar in everything, including texts. All except my 20QA comics which all lack periods.

11. I used to be very VERY afraid of zombies. Not anymore though.

12. I do not understand why people are so obsessed about the lives of celebrities. They're just people. And are they even considered celebrities? Just because they star in movies or sing songs? I don't get it!

13. I have never had a dream where I've realised I'm naked or something similar. I hear that's a common dream that most people have. I have had the teeth falling out dream though, as well as several dreams involving incredibly steep hills you struggle to climb while everyone else walks up them normally.

13 Questions not for Me but I'm going to answer anyway:

1. Any pets? I once had a guinea pig. It died. Other that that, all my other pets have belonged to my sister, and have been rabbits.

2. What's your favorite song? Depends on when you ask me, since it changes every few years, and even now I can't choose an absolute favourite. I could probably give a list though... but I don't want to search up the names of those songs.

3. If you could have any color eyes, what color would you want them to be? Green. Although to be honest, I'd be thankful to just have an actual colour. Seriously, my eyes are a mishmash of brown, blue, and green, to the point where I can't identify any predominant colour. If anyone ever asks why my current eye colour is, I usually just answer with grey.

4. If you could have a shirt that could say anything on it, what would your shirt say? Hitler was right and I love ISIS. But only because that is probably the only shirt that I couldn't have in real life. Also the controversy it would cause would be hilarious.

5. If you were forced  to eat a bug, what would you want to eat? An ant... or anything roughly that size or smaller.

6. What is your least favorite food? Peppers. Not chilly peppers, just the normal type of peppers. Ugh.

7. How do you like coffee or tea? I like my tea and coffee how I like my peppers, far away from me. Yuck!

8. If you were to live in one anime your whole life, which one would it be? Just trying to think of one where I wouldn't die instantly is hard enough. I suppose I'd have to go with Pokemon, simply because unlike Ash, I would be able to become the very best that no one ever was. And I wouldn't have to worry about being killed every other week.

9. If you could teleport, where would you go first? The nearest bank vault.

10. If you were to meet one Vocloid in the flesh, who would you want it to be? Haku

11. If you could tame any animal in the world, what animal would you tame? A mantis shrimp.

12. What is your favorite cartoon/ TV show? Ooh that's a tough choice, probably the original BBC4 Dirk Gently TV show, which was cancelled after 4 episodes because the BBC decided that BBC4 would only be for reruns. WHY DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR A TV LICENSE IF THAT'S WHAT WE GET!!! 

13. Would you want to rule to world? If so, how would you rule? I would rule it how I rule on Dwarf Fortress. And you don't want to know how I rule on Dwarf Fortress.

13 Questions to Me:

1. What do you think of Digibro's light novel? Never heard of it.

2. What do you think of Todd & The Shining Sword? I think you need to learn digital art, become more frequent, and start selling it as a proper comic. I would actually buy it! No joke!

3. Would you ever cosplay? I already did.

4. Would you buy a Todd & The Shining Sword t-shirt? Probably not. But only because I don't really buy t-shirts to show brand appreciation.

5. Have you ever played Starcraft? Yes, I thought it was bad. Dune 2, the original Age of Empires, and of course Seven Kingdoms are all way better games.

6. What about Street Fighter? Yes, I didn't reckon much to it either. The Tekken series, The Soulcalibur series, and Eternal Champions are better games in my opinion.

7. Are you a fan of Dark Souls? Have you ever watched The Angry Videogame Nerd's review on Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest? Well if I was to review Dark Souls, my review would be a line for line copy of the AVGN review on Simon's Quest. The only difference is, that I wouldn't call it a pile of shit. I'd just say that it's not my type of game.
Oh, and it's not hard. Try playing Rings of Power, or any old western CRPG. THOSE are hard.

8. Are you confident in your beliefs? What beliefs? I don't think I believe in anything. Except maybe that I won't live long enough to see anything major happen ever. (Which is probably a good thing.)

9. Which one would win at bingo? A pancake or a waffle? Depends on who is luckier.

10. Have you been to :iconizzi1313:'s Gallery? Yes.

11. What would be the best Todd & The Shining Sword video game? An open world RPG, with pixalated graphics, and a sort of Legend of Zelda type of gameplay.

12. What was the most depressing time in your life that actually turned out to not be depressing at all? You just thought it would beI don't think that's happened to me yet.

13. Is there something you wish would be in Todd & The Shining Sword? Not really.
The first fifteen people to comment on this journal, I will put their avatar and the 6 deviations I like the most from their gallery on the list! If you comment, you have to make a journal like this and do the same thing, putting me in the first spot.

The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! If you don't re-do it you will be taken off the list!

Just a little update to tell everyone that I'm currently going through some personal problems relating to my family. Which has resulted in me having to use the library computer to get online. This could mean a lack of comics for a few weeks. Although I have got at least six comics on my flashdrive which I've not submitted to devArt yet (four of which hasn't been uploaded to my website yet) so hopefully things improve before the month is over, so I can keep uploading as normal.

None the less, since I'm using the library computer, that means I only have two hours online each day, and I can't get online at all on a Sunday. So I'm sorry if I can't respond in a timely manner for a while.

If you want to know more about what happened, just ask.
:icontoddntheshiningsword: tagged me (because I asked him to) to write down 8 facts about one of my my characters, and the character he chose is one of my emotes. More specifically the greyish (slightly greenish) cyan emote that's often depicted as being the best friend of that emote with the red bandanna.

This is probably going to be hard, since I mostly don't think too deeply about my Emotes. I just let them grow as characters as I make more comics involving them, but I'll try my best.
So here I go. :D

1.    His name is kind of officially Sidekick.
In short, I've not really named any of the emotes in this second season of Emoticomic, but they do have names in my files, for identification purposes. And the name on his file is Sidekick. So that's kind of his name.

2.    He's best friends with the green emote that wears the red bandanna.
It may not seem it at times, but they are best friends. As a matter of fact, they've probably been best friends since childhood (at least, that's how I usually see it).

3.    He owns an orchard.
Quite a lot of comics back, he sold his best friend (who was encased in gold) to the pink emote to buy an orchard. But events transpired, and blah blah blah (read the comics) anyways it's implied that he would soon lose the orchard because she would want her money back. But I've never made a comic where he lost that orchard, and the pink emote has certainly never brought it up. So in short, it's safe to assume he still owns it.

4.    He's the current co-star of the comic.
Much like how Timmy was the co-star of season 1, Sidekick is the co-star on season 2. I think it goes without saying who the star is though. :D

5.    I made him up for his first appearance.
Unlike his best friend, who I had made several years prior, and who had undergone several modifications. Sidekick was made up on the spot, because I wanted the new star to quite literally have a sidekick. I also kind of reversed roles compared to the previous cast. For example, before Gurp (the star) was be the sensible one, while Timmy (the co-star) was the naive butt-of-all-jokes. But then I changed it so then the star was the naive butt-of-all-jokes, and the co-star was the sensible one.

6.    I don't know what colour he is.
To me, he looks like a grey-ish blue. But apparently he's almost equal amounts green and blue, with a little more green than blue. Hence why I say grey-ish cyan. 

7.    He's rough like a rock.
You may not have noticed this, but most if not all of my emotes have a different shading style. I could have easily given them all the same shading style, but I wanted to make them a really diverse cast. I wanted them to be like actual Emoticons, which as we all know, all have different shading styles. So that's what I did. The only two emotes that share the same shading style is Timmy and Ting. The green emote with the red bandanna has a similar shading style to those two (his shading style is based on those two) but his shading is much more rounded off and smoother.
Sidekick though has a mostly unique and rough shading style, thus giving him a rough texture. So unlike most emotes who are smooth rubber balls, he's more akin to a hard rock.

8.    His eyes are a cross between Gurp's and Timmy's.
You see, Gurp had four pixel long eyes, with two pixels of space in between. While Timmy had three pixel long eyes, with one pixel of space in between. I went for a cross between those two style of eyes, to try and mix up the diversity of my emotes some more. I would've done the same thing to the green emote as well, but at the other end of the spectrum, but I had already designed him prior to the idea, and I didn't want to alter that integral part of him.

Well that was hard.
If you want me to tag you, just let me know.

I'm making this poll to both answer a question that I've been thinking for a while, and because :icon1devilishdude: suggested I make a poll.
So here it is.

Out of all of the comics series I've begun and stopped, which ones were your favorites?
You can quickly look over the folders in my gallery in case you need a quick refresher on what I've made.

Here's a quick list though, so just tell me which ones you like, which ones you don't, and which one you like the most. :D
(They're more or less ordered chronologically, in other words, when I started them)
1. R Comic
2. How to be a Big Bad Boss
3. Photo Comics
4. Ratty the Rat
5. Three Idiots on the Road
6. Emoticomic
7. 20 Quid Amusements
8. Raz and the Everything

(I haven't included the Pokemon comics and the One Off comics in that list, but you can vote for those if you want,)

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I don't know, let me check... six years.

2. What does your username mean?
My username (which I use everywhere by the way) is actually the name I gave a character of mine in a short story I once wrote.
I wanted a username which was unique enough that I'd be able to use it anywhere, and simple enough that me and everyone else could remember it and spell it. The name that came to mind, was the name of powerful wizard I wrote a short story about. So yeah, this isn't my name, although anyone who ever bothered to read the bottom of my 20QA comics would know that.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Super Special Awesome!
Sorry, I've only just recently watched all of YuGiOh Abridged. I think that does describe me pretty well though. Although I'll come up with something more original.
How about: Overconfident, Humourous, Awesome.

4. Are you left or right handed?
Left handed, and I struggle to cut anything with scissors. Writing with a pencil or pen is also quite a chore, although nowhere near as much using scissors.
I use my mouse the right handed way though, thanks to my dad having always put the mouse that way when I was a kid. So yeah, I got used to it that way. Using a mouse the left handed way just feels awkward.

5. What was your first deviation?
R Comic Preview by DanVzare
Which was soon followed by this:
R Comic Page 1 by DanVzare
Now why don't you read them. :D

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Comics... obviously. Just look at my gallery.
It's my hobby. :D

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Just a simple cartoony fun looking artstyle. I think this question oversimplifies the term art style, and can't be answered properly though.
It'd be better to ask "If you could draw like a certain artist, which artist would it be." In which case my answer would be Richard Elson.

8. What was your first favourite?
Heck if I know. Although it was probably something drawn for me.
Probably this:  Sesshoumaru by Tom345
If I had to take a guess.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
There really isn't any particular type of art I tend to favorite the most. I just go on random faving sprees based on certain things, and whether or not I like them. Whether that be comics, digital art, or even traditional art. I don't really care, so long as I like it. I'm very picky in what I favourite though.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ooh, that's a tough one. Although in all honesty, since it asked "artist" I'm going to have to choose myself. Simply because I'm my favourite artist on deviant art.
As for my favourite friend on deviant art. Well there's three people. The now long since gone Tom345. The first friend I ever had on deviant art. DreadHaven who I'm currently playing Dwarf Fortress with. And finally ToddNTheShiningSword, who I've had a LOT of great conversations with.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Hard to say really, I'm quite the recluse. Probably DreadHaven.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
In all honesty, I don't think anyone here on deviantART has impacted my life. Sure plenty of people have made me really happy, and done some brilliantly awesome things which I'm very grateful for. But no one has had an impact on me. My comics have improved over time, not because of comments I've received, but in my own strive for constant improvement. Nothing on deviantART has really led me to any life altering things, or even anything major. For example, I discovered MLP on a zombie forum, not here on deviantART. If I had discovered that here on diviantART, I would've probably been able to say something based on that.

I think I've digressed a bit too much though. No one here on deviantART has impacted my life, not in any way major that is. Sure there are those that have given me inspiration, but that's about it.

But if I really had to choose someone, it'd have to be ToddNTheShiningSword, for commenting on my Raz and the Everything comics, and inspiring me to finish it. I would've probably never finished those comics had it not been for him.
But I wouldn't call that an impact on my life.

Hmm, I wonder if I've impacted anyone's life?
Probably not. But I've definitely made plenty of people smile. :D

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
A computer. More specifically, an IBM Clone (I'd probably do ok with an IBM as well, but I don't have any). To simplify that for everyone, a Windows machine. I could explain the technicalities of what I meant, and educate everyone, but let's face it. I was just being a smart ass, and no one cares.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
The toilet!
No that's not a joke, I'm being serious. Sitting on the toilet gives you time to think, since there's rarely anything else to do (unless you're one of those weirdos who brings their phone or newspaper with them). As a matter of fact, I used to come up with entire comic page scripts while sitting on the toilet back when I first joined deviantART.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Nope... can't think of one.
Hold on, wait. I know one. When I finally made this:  Raz and the Everything Cover by DanVzare
I'm still incredibly proud of that. I wouldn't really call that a deviantART memory though. Just a generic art memory.

Um... #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire
I don't know how those stupid tags work.

I'm posting this journal to not only get a new journal entry to cover the last one, but also to advertise this raffle, where if you win, you can get a nice picture of one of your OC's. There's actually three different prizes, and it's a little more complicated than that, but it's easy to enter.

So this is me entering, and here is the link: RAFFLE!!! Ends 5/20

  • Watching: The optimism emote
  • Playing: Nothing
  • Eating: Nothin
  • Drinking: An energy drink
If you like the new logo, this journal entry isn’t for you, but if you don’t like the new logo, I have a plan to get it changed. So far, people have just been complaining about the new logo looking terrible, but that isn’t going to do anything. The deviantART staff will just think we’re complaining because we don’t like change. We can’t just tell them that the new logo is terrible, we need to PROVE it!

We need to put our pencils where our mouths are. We need to spend our time making or improving their logo, to prove to them that their logo is bad, and that we want them to change it. They say that deviantART is for the community; that we’re all in this together. Well let’s see them prove it!

If we all work together, and ALL of us make our own logo, we’ll be sending a message to deviantART. A message they simply won’t be able to ignore. If their entire art community is willing to spend the time to fix the mistake they made, they HAVE to pay attention.

What I’m saying, is that we all need to make our own logo. I want you to go make your own deviantART logo. It can be based on their current one, or it can be completely different. You can use digital art, traditional art, or even pixel art. Just make your own logo. After that, tell everyone you know to do the same thing.

If we all pull together and do this, deviantART will have to notice that we aren’t simply complaining. We’re trying help deviantART!

So to list it more simply:
    ·    Make your own deviantART logo
    ·    Use the tags #speakout and #Newlogo, and if appropriate #dahybridlogo
    ·    Tell everyone you know to make their own deviantART logo (perhaps linking them to this journal entry)

If we flood deviantART with this many alternate logos, each one showing our displeasure with the current logo. Then they will notice, and they will have to realize that they need to rethink their logo design. We can do this if we ALL WORK TOGETHER, we just need to be heard.


:iconnebesaheavens: suggested the inclusion of the tags. So thank her for that awesome suggestion. And if you have any ideas for tags, just post them in the comments.

Also thanks to :iconrockyrailroad578: for suggesting some more tags.

I was tagged by :iconvindurza:
the original rules follow here.
1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer
3. Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal
4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"
5. You have to tag legitimately 10 people
6. No tag-backs

but there's no rule about changing the rules, and since there's plenty of somewhat meta rules, I think it's safe to say that it's not implied that you can't change the rules, so I'm changing the rules slightly.

The new rules follow here:
1. Each person has to share 5 things about themselves
2. Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer
3. Choose 2 or more people and put their icons on your journal
4. Not something like "you are tagged if you read this"
5. You have to tag legitimately 2 or more people
6. No tag-backs
7. No changing the rules

my five things about myself are:
1. I don't remember the first game I ever played, because of how young I was at the time, but it was probably on the Amiga.
2. I grew up with a Snes and Megadrive emulator on a computer, and the Snes emulator had a load of japanese roms, as a result I have a lot of nostalgia for games you've never even heard of, such as Daibakushou Jinsei Gekijou - Ooedo Nikki, Dokapon 3.2.1. Arashi wo Yobu Yujyo, and MagiMonster Maker Kids.
3. My parent's didn't get the internet until about 2001, or more likely later. I don't remember the exact year, but it wasn't that long ago.
4. I always use proper punctuation when writing text messages.
5. I think I have an allergy towards chocolate.

Vinzurza's questions are you have any strange habits
I have loads of strange habits, but I suppose I've got to give at least one. Whenever I'm in a bank or the post office, I like to think of the order I'd shoot everyone if I burst in with a shotgun (and for the record, I would never commit such a senseless act of violence, I actually detest violence, but there's always fun in imaginary violence).

2. which do you prefer sour or spicy
Well it depends really. I wouldn't want my curries to be sour, and I wouldn't want my sour Skittles to be spicy. But if I had to choose, I'd choose sour.

3. what's your biggest phobia
Probably spiders. I just don't like those damn legs!

4. name the last science fiction program you watched
Doctor Who, it was about a few minutes ago as well. Although since I'm British, watching Doctor Who is practically obligatory.

5. what makes you hesitate when asking a question to someone in person
I hesitate because of what I think their response will be like. As a result, I try and word my question in such a way so that I get the response I want (in my head of course, and it's usually right).

6. what is your biggest pet peeve
Where do I start!
But since you're asking, probably when someone get's a technicality wrong... or when people write "your" instead of "you're", I mean, the two words don't even sounds the same, and the meanings are completely different. One is pronounced "yor" and the other is pronounced "u-er". I also have a peeve with modern FPS games, and when people complain about splitscreen being in a game, when it being in doesn't affect them.
I could go on forever about pet peeves.

7. name your favorite video game
That's like asking me to choose my favorite child... when I get children that is.
The original Deus Ex is a brilliant game. Dwarf Fortress is as well. I like Seven kingdoms: Ancient Adversaries. I also like Timesplitters Future Perfect.

8. if you had to choose would you rather work for modern disney or nickelodeon
Probably Disney, since chances are that in a decade or two, Nickelodeon will probably get bought out by Disney. Every company does in the end.

9. which genre of animation do you prefer 2d or 3d
It depends on the story, but I personally prefer 2D if it's traditionally animated. If it's flash, then probably 3D.

10. more makes a better horror film blood and gore, or suspense and the unknown
Suspense and the unknown. Oh, and none of those stupid idiots getting on the floor screaming for a few minutes while the monster very slowly makes it's way towards them. There's a reason why Evil Dead was a good film, and it's because he actually DID SOMETHING. Oh, and I don't like cheap scares from startling the audience. A sense of impending doom is the best, after all, it's why I personally find slow zombies better than fast zombies. One just gives cheap scares, the other only scares you with the hopelessness of it all.

my ten questions are

1. Why did you join deviantArt?
2. What do you think to these chain tag thingies?
3. Are you going to tag other people?
4. What is your tenth question going to be?
5. Do you agree that changing the rules is ok, if there's no rule about changing the rules?
6. What's your favorite colour?
7. What's your favorite day of the week?
8. What do you think to the spelling differences between English and American English (such as color and colour)?
9. Which do you prefer AAA Games, Indie Games, or Retro Games?
10. Do you think I was lazy in coming up with the majority of these questions?

Since my other journal entry sounds rather bleak, and someone suggested that I make a new one to cover it up, I've decided to create this journal entry telling you what's going on with me!
Think of it as a "Current Plans 7.0" or something.

So, as you know, Emoticomic comes out every Friday, and 20 Quid Amusements comes out every Wednesday.
Emoticomic doesn't look like it's going to stop any time soon, although I must admit, it is starting to feel a bit like a obligation, rather than a hobby. So there might be a hiatus after I've finished my 2nd hundred comics for it.
20 Quid Amusements is coming along just fine. I really need to see about adding or moving forward with a plot a little bit there. See about doing another short story arc or something. But we'll see.
As for Raz and the Everything. It doesn't really seem like anyone was reading it, so that's been put onto hiatus, to allow me to work on other things. I still want to finish off those short stories, and if you read them and comment on them, I'll probably be inspired to work on them sooner rather than later. But they're still on my to do list.
R Comic, is as always, still on my to do list. If you're a watcher, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, and that's because everyone who originally read it, has now left DA in one form or another. Basically, it was my first comic on DA, and I said at the end that there would be another adventure. Just know that it's still on my To Do List, and that I haven't forgotten it. Also, don't read it, it's terrible, especially compared to my other comics.

I'm currently using my sister's old Windows Vista Laptop. It's quite good, it's not too slow. It's not lightning fast either, and I can't do anything too graphical on it, without waiting for ages for it to load up. But it serves my purposes quite well. I have to go on a different computer to play Dwarf Fortress of make my comics, but I can't always get onto that computer. Besides, I don't like the keyboard on that computer. But I can quite easily make my Emoticomics on this laptop, since they're so quick and easy to make. You'd be surprised how easy it is to make an Emoticomic. It takes me about half an hour to make an Emoticomic I'd say. Give or take of course. I could make an Emoticomic every day, with ease. Actually, I have. It's just that I get really sick of Emoticomic whenever I do that, and usually stop making them altogether.  Besides, coming up with a new and funny idea every day isn't easy. I can barely manage it on a weekly basis. Actually, what are your thoughts on Emoticomic 2.0? How do you rate these new Emoticons, and this new way of handling the stories? Do you like or dislike how the majority of comics now seem to be interlinked?

Well, if you're read this far, I'm impressed. If you've just skipped to the end, then I'm still impressed. None the less, thanks for reading. :D

Just to let everyone know, my laptop is officially dying as of today.
It was practically a miracle to get it on at all today, and I doubt that I'll be able to get it on ever again. As a result, I'm backing up EVERYTHING (and going to start using another computer).

This also means that I probably won't be able to respond to comments today (although I will try, and thinking about it, probably will eventually sometime today).

I'm not even entirely sure what's wrong with my laptop. The thing just doesn't come on, although the fan clearly works. It's like the CPU is disconnected or something. None the less, I managed to fix it by applying pressure to the bottom part of my laptop, where the touch-pad is. I don't know if that was pure luck, of I actually fixed something (I suppose I'll find out when I turn my laptop off and turn it back on again).
And for anyone with the same problem, I have a Pavilion dv6. And when I turn on the laptop, the screen doesn't come on, and the capslock LED blinks really slowly. The capslock LED also sometimes just stays on, or doesn't come on at all (so it's pretty erratic). The wireless LED also stays on orange. If you've had this problem, it'd be really nice if you could tell me what's wrong.

None the less, I have my laptop on now. So I guess I better get back to transferring everything off.
Thanks for reading.

I've just submitted number 10! :woohoo:
Just 90 more to go.

Now I've just hit 20!
I must admit, I've really started to get used to the new characters, and they're really coming along quite nicely. I still sorta miss Gurp though.

And now I've just hit 30!
Not bad if I do say so myself. I've gotten used to all of the new character now, and am quite comfortable writing for them as well. I must admit, my personalities of them seems to be starting to go a little different, but overall everything is running smoothly. I think I've started to get a hang of using continuity in these Emoticomics as well.

That's right I've hit 50!
I'm halfway through the list already!
Also, I'm going on an Emoticomic hiatus to rest my creative juices. You can find more information on the fiftieth comic on this list "Graffiti".

WOW!!! 90!!!
I can't believe there's only ten more left. Wow... just... wow.

And that makes 100.
Done. This list is now complete. It didn't take long either.
Even though I started this particular list over two years ago, it feels like I've been doing it for only a single year.
What now I wonder.
So what's going on?

Not much, I'm just updating this since the last update was ages ago. Basically I've fallen into a bit of a regime where I upload 20 Quid Amusments on Wednesday, and Emoticomic on Friday.

Emoticomic is coming to an end, because believe it or not, it's a hundred word challenge, and upon writing this journal entry, I've just submitted number 85. But don't worry, I've got a few ideas for after I've finished it. The possible plans are, I find another hundred word challenge and continue from there, start a remixed version with new characters, or I try doing another hundred word challenge but while trying to tie it all in on a long winding story arc.
If anyone sees this and want to make a suggestion, please do.

Current Plans 3.0

Sun Jan 27, 2013, 4:04 AM

Ok, so I want to start the 2nd arc of Raz and the Everything next week, but things are really starting to get hectic around here. The most major of these things is the fact that I am now starting my University Course. While for now it isn't too much of a strain, I do know how these things slowly take up more and more of your time. There are also a huge array of family problems, which I'm going to keep to myself.

But I will try to get more comics made for the following: Emoticomic, 20 Quid Amusements, and Raz and the Everything. Once again, I'm not promising anything, but I will try my best. Heck, I wanted to make an Emoticomic yesterday but I didn't have time, so if I don't make one today, now you'll know my excuse.

Current Plans

Thu Jun 28, 2012, 10:20 AM

In case anyone's wondering (I honestly don't know how many of my watchers still go onto DA) here are my current plans.

I'm currently digitizing page 2 of Academic Games. Academic Games is made by :iconellescomics: she's got some pretty good comics, you should check them out.
After I'm done with that, I'm going to do a comic strip based on my Three Idiots on the Road and I'm going to finish off page 2 of Ratty the Rat.
I've got a picture that I drew of a Forgotton Beast from Dwarf Fortress, on my laptop which I'm thinking of uploading too, I've also got an idea for another 20 Quid Amusements strip (as a matter of fact I've got pages of ideas, but this one is new).

So those are my plans. I do have another idea about posting a one panel comic of Z-Man and then offering to do a comic for anyone, if they do a comic about him. But I'm not so sure if anyone would accept, if you think it would be a good idea, tell me in the comment section.

Peace out.

I Got This From :iconerkillers: Who Got It From :iconxxspeemotheemoxx: Who Got It From Someone Else But I Don't Know Who Because She Deleted It

:woohoo: 40 down, 60 to go.

:iconwoohooplz: I've just hit FIFTY!!!

Wow, only four more to go, and then it's over. It's going to be sad to say goodbye to Gurp and Timmy.

I can't believe it. Only one more to go. It's been a good trip... a nice one.

Well, there it is. I've done. I've completed the 100 Word Challenge. Too bad I can't get any of these into a 100 Word Challenge group, because they're all comics.

Still Here

Mon May 24, 2010, 7:17 AM

Just to let you know I still visit DA everynow and again, I just don't go on it as much because almost all of my old watchers (who were somewhat friends) don't go on DA anymore and no I haven't forgotten about R Comic but I probably won't be contuing it.

There's a good chance no one will read this but just in case someone does, I've not left DA.
