This is the official resource collection for the Comics and Cartoons Gallery. If you're just getting started or want quick resources, look for the :juggle: symbol before an entry. These are resources that provide a good overview, while the rest go more in depth and into technical details.

No, they are not stealing your artworks
:star: No, They are not stealing your artworks
Ever since deviantART released the Share this tools there has been a huge refusal from the community. And I can understand why, most of the ones that don't agree to their artworks being shared on these websites are people who've never browsed them and thus they don't know how they work and how their work will be featured there. Some others have other reasons to disagree but I don't understand their point of view.
Let me clear some things up for you, If I may.
:star: How do these share tools work?
The most important thing is to know how to use them properly. It's really easy!
When you see an artwork you love and would like to share with some friends don't you show them through msn? Don't you link them to see the artwork on other websites or forums?
Share tools work the same way as you used to. With a simple click on the icon of the website you want to promote the work on a window pops up and after following

ONE: We (deviantART) should NOT give you (deviants submitting deviations) options regarding Share This, let alone Share Links (we don't offer this for Links). WE WILL continue to offer Share This options. But we shouldn't. Our sharing options should always be permitted on every deviation. Keep reading.
TWO If you choose the option on deviantART to dis-able [quote, un-quote] sharing on your deviations, you're actually encouraging copyright infringement. Please let me explain.
THREE If you post a JPG, GIF, etc. on the Internet, it can be used in a way that infringes your copyrights, or "stolen" as many of you say. By the very function of your Internet Explorer, Safari or Firefox browser, anyone may easily RIGHT-CLICK and "Save to Disk," "Save as Wallpaper," etc.  Alternatively you may easily use your operating system to SCREEN SHOT the art work on the screen. You may easily use a wide variety of applications to simulate, automate, or otherwise perfor

Artists are professionals, too!
I'm not sure if this has been posted here yet or not, but here's something that :iconleopreston: posted on her DA Journal today that I thought needed to be shared by me as well. I don't know who the original author of this is, but it really impressed me. Please read:
"Every day, there are more and more Craigs List posts seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? …none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on craigslist to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as the

So apparently I update this journal once a year. -_-

ANYWAY. I just realized I’ve been sort of basically absent from DA for… a month? Two months?? There was a lot of real life stuff going on, and it got awfully distracting for a while and I just kind of… forgot to check in. ^^; 

So yes, stuff has been happening! Some annoying stuff! But mostly good stuff! Among the annoying things was of course my old computer going kablooie… Two months later and I’m still hunting up old files, reinstalling and reconfiguring applications, trying to rebuild my old bookmarks, and fun stuff like that. So, yay. 

Among the good things has been a flurry of animation jobs, (fun, but they tend to have very short deadlines, so it’s kind of stressful and I keep having to drop all my side projects to meet animation deadlines.) Also among the good-but-stressful things is the fact that I snagged a table for IlluXCon this year! THIS IS MY FIRST CON. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING. AND OH MY GOD YOU SHOULD SEE THE LEVEL OF ARTISTS AT THIS THING WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO. PANIC COMMENCES NOW. So yeah, a lot of my free time should really go into preparing for this thing, because I am nowhere near ready and have no clue.

Meanwhile I’ve been desperately trying to build up a  buffer for the Wayward Queen webcomic, because it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with timely updates - I need a buffer for sanity’s sake! So far it’s, um, not going so well (I’m still basically zero pages ahead of myself)… But I’ll build up a buffer or bust, dammit!

I… guess I should reply to things. I can’t believe how long I’ve ignored my message center. This is so embarrassing. ^^;

Just FYI, I seem to be somewhat more active on Tumblr these days, if you’re into Tumbling (I’m QueenGwenevere on Tumblr.) It’s just so much easier to slap stuff up on Tumblr than on DA (I swear DA just keeps making things more complicated, so I always put off posting.) Though I should really post some of that stuff here, too.

Happy birthday! May your birthday be a day for you to pig out, bum out or just chillax! :D
QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
Really stupidly late thanks! ^^; Haha, I actually ended up working - I've been whacked with crazy last-minute deadlines this month (hence why I've been so bad about replies.)

Totally plan to make up for it later, though. I already have a post-Birthday dinner planned with a friend who's been missing holidays too.

Happy Dandy, Merry, Cheery, Birthday~!
QueenGwenevere Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
Really hopelessly ridiculously late thanks! ^^; A not-so-dandy deadline took over my life for a couple of weeks there... But at least there was pie! Pie is good.
Cid-Alderlaine Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Pie's always a luxury to enjoy :3
