Hey I started a webcomic about 6 months ago with no idea what I was doing, and it never once crossed my mind until now to ask, but what sort of advice do you have for someone just getting into comics? Specifically in the online space. asked by unseenilluminator

gingerhaze:

1. Webcomics are one of the only places where you can do whatever you want with no one to answer to. Take advantage of it. Do the stories that you’ve always wanted to read but have never been able to find. Don’t make choices just based on what you think will be popular.

2. That said, learning to take criticism is a must! A lot of webcomics criticism is…not exactly constructive, but occasionally there will be a nugget of wisdom. Learn what to take to heart and what’s just noise.

3. Don’t be afraid to learn, experiment, and grow! If it’s your first longform comic, it’s some of the best comics education you can get.

4. This one isn’t applicable to every comic, but it’s important to me: be on time. Especially if you’re just starting out. Figure out your update schedule and stick to it. Have several pages drawn in advance so you’re not working up to the last minute. Updating on time shows your readership that you’re dedicated to the story and that you can consistently be relied upon to provide it. Obviously hiatuses have to happen sometimes, but if you’re new you can lose a lot of readers by not updating consistently when you’re getting started.

5. Keep on truckin’. Do it for the story and not for the fame and mad riches (because uh…there really isn’t any of that). It takes time and patience to build an audience, but having even just a few people care about the story you’re telling is an amazingly rewarding experience.

Q: Did you have any rituals while putting on the costume, that helped you get into character? Sebastian Stan: “I played a lot of sound tracks from different movies. Also Daft Punk was huge for me and David Bowie and The Terminator soundtrack, believe it or not. I love music. You know, I’ve always wanted to do an ’80’s movie! I love that music!” (x)

My new work noise. Also replacing the Moriarty fst as the ‘get out there and get shit done’ soundtrack. (Well, maybe appending. I love that frickin’ mix.)

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

Two kinds of people.

I think the second person just failed to grasp the way this thing actually works.

On working with Mads Mikkelsen:
Caroline Dhavernas: He is intense. He’s wonderful and he’s very passionate about his work. I’ve never seen him complain about being there, about being cold and God knows they’ve put him through the ringer. He’s just a wonderful co-star and a wonderful person to be around, and the most talented actor right now I think in the generation. So just to be working with him is such a blessing. I was a fan of his before I worked on the show. I watched a lot of his Danish films and I couldn’t believe my luck when I found out I would be working with him.

This may be the best behind-the-scenes picture yet and that’s including the one with the three of them giggling in bed.

I used to read about true crime a LOT. I distinctly remember it being more fun. It’s pretty hard to parse or explain *why* it’s fun to ppl who don’t get it (sororial unit, signally) but there’s a need to understand the extremities of human behaviour and experience, I suppose. You want to know the…

"Killer" isn’t necessarily a societal failure, I think. But "serial" is.

That’s the part that struck me when reading ‘From Hell’, and then all the speculation books I read afterward on the Ripper. Nobody cared about the victims per se. The horror was all about the ritualism; the fact that the victims were sex workers was handled with a shrug and a sense of ‘well, work hazard’. What I took away from the books was wanting to know more about the victims. (And that most of the ‘candidates’ for the Ripper were already unpleasant.)
