Sparrow and Turner
The Jack Sparrow .gifs in my sprite folder in my gallery are some of the most popular deviations I've ever uploaded. I've got a handful of .gifs I found on an old Photobucket account so I figured I'd throw them up here.

Well, this is nostalgic!

If it's not obvious, I've rather neglected my DA account these past few years. It's not an exclusive neglect; my Twitter and my personal blog have also been pretty much abandoned too these past few years.

To cut to the point, I had a little bit of a minor mental crisis a few years back due to having too many hobby projects on the go at the same time. On top of that, I'd got annoyed at myself for not completing things.

It occurred to me that three of the projects, all comics*, could technically be three birds killed with one stone. The only problem was that the stone in question needed to be the size of a boulder in the form of a custom webcomic CMS (Content Management System).

*Detulux Incorporated, The Two Doctors and Dr. Ralph Smiffington's Dosser Rodeo

Why did I need to build a webcomic CMS? Why not just use Wordpress with one of the existing webcomic plugins? Or use one of the many other webcomic CMS solutions available on the web? Because they're all pretty bloody awful, that's why. I remember trying twice with Wordpress to build the webcomic site I wanted and failing because the custom tags were too limited, and the webcomic CMS's out on the 'net all generate bloody awful search engine unfriendly URLs (web addresses for the ho's at home) and aren't particularly mobile-friendly.

I set out to build a custom webcomic CMS, and that was roughly two years ago. It took that long mostly due to procrastination and distraction and I admit it's been difficult sometimes to really engage with the project due to coding for a living; after a day of staring at PHP code the last thing you want to do in the evenings and on weekends is to stare at PHP code some more.

The CMS I have built, which I call "Webcomical", isn't quite ready for the proper release yet but the code is available online on my GitHub account if anyone is interested. I haven't thoroughly bug-tested the thing yet and I need to create some sort of webpage to advertise it and provide installation instructions.

Off the back of the CMS project nearing completion, I am now proud to announce that Detulux Incorporated now has a new dedicated living space at gunjunker.payneful.co.uk - head on over and take a gander. There's a few spoilers about something we were planning to reveal later (HINT HINT the comic's title will be changing along with a few character names HINT HINT) but I'd rather just announce it now and get it off my chest! The entire website is built using my Webcomical CMS and there's only a handful of things left to do on the site in terms of tweaks. Sam and myself have been busy writing episode transcripts and getting character profiles finished for the last six months or so. If you follow Detulux here on DeviantArt** then don't worry; weekly updates will continue on this site and the webcomic site will host only the "complete" episodes then apparently you will either need to follow the website (you can sub via RSS) or if you'd like the weekly updates then they are available for Patreon supporters (apologies, I thought we were going to keep reuploading to DA but my artist reliably informs me that the website is slowly being buried under fetish pornography so we are jumping ship, I guess?).

**If you're not following it, why the hell not? I write the damn thing and everyone's favourite nefarious mad scientists have just appeared in it!

The next project I'd like to turn my attention to will be a new website for all the Two Doctors' stuff. It's currently available at the-two-doctors.payneful.co.uk… but is all over the bloody place at the moment. I've started migrating pages over from the minisites that already exist so over the next month or two I'll hopefully get everything up to date and then I genuinely intend to resume the Two Docs' world tour! When I do resume I'll be posting pages to the dedicated site and DA.

As for Dosser Rodeo, which I started putting pages up for and then dropped while I worked on the CMS, will be going back on hiatus indefinitely. I want to get the Two Docs' World Tour done before embarking on another comic project and there's also the small matter of not being happy (again) with how the comic started. To that note, the long-inactive The-Right-Bros DA account has been deactivated; I may very well re-upload all the pages that Sam did for it as bonus materials should Dosser Rodeo ever resurface in the future.

That's about everything I have to say at the moment. I may attempt to go through the 823 DA notifications I've accumulated at some point! If anyone's still following me and is active, please do say hello in the comments below. It's been a while and is always nice to reconnect.

Oh, I suppose I should casually mention that I married Psi Baka Onna last year and we're currently living in our own house being adults and shit. Life's pretty good. Hope you're all doing alright out there in Deviantland too.
