I'm not sure whether I should laugh or be offended... =P

I'd just roll with it and laugh.

Good thing they haven't decided to make a character of me yet...Razz

Fanart galleries, because we have shit tons of fanart now.

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Dinny/Deer%20Dinny/ << Me. 76 images. *Aneurysm*

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Dinny/Dr%20ARM/<< Dr. ARM. 26 images (most people are scared of drawing men unless they're extremely effeminate). To note: The sketchy gender-bent ARM is actually ARM's own drawing of his female self, and one of the images is actually a fan art from me. Can you guess which one I drew?

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v92/Dinny/Duo/ << Couple art. 17 images. The Harry Potter themed chibis were made by me on a Harry Potter character creator. They are also insanely adorable.

Edit:

@ Cancercrab: Laugh. Your character is badass.

@ ArgentFang: Maybe we can arrange a cameo, like the one we're having for Mi-Cuit. He's a traveling perfume merchant, you know. I dunno what we'd do with you though. I'm having a vision though: one or two panels with an obscenely cute wolf in the background. There. Done. You have a character, congratulations.

I'm almost starting to think I should promote Xenoearth on that site; maybe throw up the prologue and a few chapters that introduce the primary characters or something.

Now that I exist as a sickeningly cute wolf creature in your comic, this means I have to put you somewhere in one of my books; deer antlers are optional at this point.

Always good for a shot. And for extra exposure you can buy a subscription (they're not expensive -- I will get one when ARM starts drawing stuff) and they'll actually advertise you, and there's also some program called #GetWatchers, which is apparently really effective in publicizing (again, something to do when our little project actually gets off the ground).

The other way to do it is botting: basically, set a macro to hit the "random user" button, either watch them or give them a badge, then leave that running for a few days. You should come back to find masses of people watching you.

Sounds like something I might try later on as I get used to the interface of the sight and cringe when I see all the wanna-be Blue Lupine characters (which seem to be nothing more than fursonas.. Twitch ) At least I'll be original in that respect. Razz

And before you say it, no the avatar is not a furry me (not really) but merely the last remnants of Stalker's artwork.

Nah, I knew that. From the best of my memory, it was just an alias for an otherwise human character, right?

Once you get a bit more familiar with the interface, set up some things like your page/userinfo/icon and whatnot, I can show you what groups you should join and submit your work to. You probably wanna find lots of writing and fantasy groups, and as I said, when you have your stuff in line, #GetWatchers is the next port of call.


Your faves, huh? Glad you like those. Razz My favorites are the one I posted at the top of this page, this Scott Pilgrim style one that I colored, this cute one, and this one that I now use as an avatar.

And for ARM, this one and this one.

Yeah, Blue Lupine is just the superhero/bounty hunter name that he uses in the series.

I'll have to toss up Redemption's Rite to give myself a little variety.

I'm also considering throwing up this current short story I'm working on called "The Second Life," (though to be fair, it might turn into more of a novelette, I'm not sure yet.) dealing with Glenn's time after being beaten within an inch of his life and almost drowning in the Atlantic Ocean but before he became the Blue Lupine.

Just a small warning: anything that you want to get published, you probably shouldn't upload more than the first few chapters. Publishing companies are a bit nuts about that. Mine wouldn't allow more than the prologue to be public, but most of them are more lenient than that.

What have you gotten published just out of curiosity? And I'd never divulge more than the first few chapters of any book I'm working on (Just to whet their appetites for the release.)

A crappy novella titled Idyllic. I wanted to capture a similar feel to Stephen King's novella The Body. It's just a short thing about family life and grief, and it's an "innocence lost" kind of story.

xD I will never tell you who published it! Ever. I don't want anyone to see this pile of crap. I'll tell you when I publish something good.

To answer your question, it was a small independent press located here in South Australia, so yeah. Not that hard. I had about 20 copies printed, two are mine, the rest belong to friends and teachers, one of them is ashamedly enough at my local library. The manuscript and everything are still up on the site and it's kind of an "on demand" thing where you click and they print and send you a copy.

But like I said, when I write something worthy of buying, I'll tell you.

If you're curious about my writing, try here. It's still not the best, but it's about 70% there. This isn't my usual style: I'm not really a fan of first-person limited perspective, but when I write it, for some reason it always comes out really emotive. If you aren't familiar with Death Note, the main character of this piece is Mello, who is basically a boy genius (though not to the standard of L/Near), so it's interesting trying to get into his headspace and try to write as he would think: impulsive and emotional, very perceptive, and obviously with high-brow language.

I'm going to try to do another fanfiction for Mermaid Melody done in first person, but I've been putting it off for a year. The character I want to write from the perspective of is a very dumb, airheaded, fourteen-year-old-girl. That's a massive challenge for me, because it's hard to think about what someone like that would/wouldn't realize, how they'd react to things, etc. Dr. ARM gave me some pretty helpful advice and said that I should just write using very basic thought patterns. I really want to try when I feel more confident.

I'll just echo what I heard from the panel at the Author's convention that the local library here held last January and simply say: Write what you know. If you need some more advice on writing for stupid characters, I might be able to help you out considering the nature of my character Zubzar even though I don't write in first person because, like you, I find it highly limiting in scope.

Dinny, I read your fanfic & thought it was really great. I've always been a fan of first person, simply because I like seeing how a character thinks & feels. If it's done right (à la Jodi Picoult, whom I absolutely love), you get to really understand & sympathize/empathize with each character by the time you close the book. I loved how you wrote it; it really sucked me in. I noticed a few errors here & there though, lol, but nothing major ("it's" in place of "its", & capitalization errors when a character's speaking).

For the 14 year old girl thought processes: In some movies, the sidekicks of the heroes are dummies. Have you thought about borrowing from them? (Watching a movie with nearly no plot--"Dumb & Dumber" comes to mind--would probably help you too.) Just a thought. Smile

Will Ferrell movies are also a great source of stupid character dialogue; no one pulls off stupid quite like him.

This I was aware of, I have yet to go back and fix it though.

StarFireSong wrote:& capitalization errors when a character's speaking).

This one you're going to have to point out to me. I just combed back over the piece and all I can identify is capitals after an ellipsis (I don't know if that's proper), and occasionally capitalization in a broken sentence (i.e. "The point is," Near quickly interjected, "It all leads to an interesting thought.").

Capitalization after an ellipse depends on the circumstances. In your case, you don't want to do that as it demonstrates the character's hesitation after saying "what" before finishing his sentence.

The sentence you picked out was one of the ones I was talking about.

This one needs to have a comma between "hey" & "Near".

Dinny wrote:" 'Human Traffic'? What do you mean?" I pressed. In hindsight, I'm surprised that I didn't walk out there and then.

You'd need to remove the space between the quotes at the very beginning (the " and ').

Dinny wrote:"Seriously Near, what the hell—"

Also another comma between "seriously" & "Near".

Dr. ARM's Up-to-Date Dossier.

Leaving this here for slightly (very) selfish purposes. That purpose being that Google rabidly checks and logs my forum and I need to replace the old dossiers that show up when you google "Dr. ARM" because they're outdated.

The alternatives look stupider (the full realism route). I'm not sure why. I've always been bothered by characters that have a lot of hair in their face and it obscures their eyes. So I took the manga approach here (granted it looks far better and not as odd in black and white).

I might get him in the future to just draw his hair more out of his face, we'll see.

Forgot to comment on this

I think it's nice Dinny....even with the eyes popping out of the hair. I keep forgetting how talented you are when it comes to drawing. I am so envious, my blood bleeds green
