Characters and Forumites... How do, fellow travelers and forumites.
"Forumites"? Hrmmm.... that sounds like something you need to spray
for. "I'm sorry to have to tell you this mamn, but you have an
infestation of Forumites... " the Orkin man says as he picks up his
gear. "Looks like we'll have to condemn." ;] Heh heh. It feels that
way sometimes around here too. *snicker* Just kidding, mostly.
Still, I AM going to have ta thinks up a better term for us forum
denizens and wanderers. We just can't have the man from Orkin
coming after us... So... are ya'll enjoying the tour? What? Hrmm...
awfull quiet in here. Let's see what we can do to liven things up,
eh? First stop, I want to drag ya'll with me out to a couple of the
various forii we've just barely touched on before, and show ya'll a
few sights. And then we can all stand around together and go "Hey!
Lookit that!" Comics Corner has one of those that caught my eye
just as I was starting to write this. Check this out...
"Hawkwoman - Almost finished" by Quagnon
Pretty cool, eh? Then
go check out the finished work in the galleries:
"Hawkwoman" by Quagnon
'Course... we already knew that we had
some fascinatingly talented people around here. So I'm not telling
most of you anything new. Still, that's just one of the neat things
you get to see wandering around in the forii here. You see a lot of
the finished works in the galleries
, of course,
but the forums
are where you get to watch and discuss the reation process. And
kibbitz. ;] We all like to toss or 0.02 in when we can, especially
when we has the spare change. *snicker* I know I do... Comics
is THE place to hang out, along with what I consider
it's sister forum, Character
. In the one, you get to pick the minds of any number
of people who not only do poser and other apps, but also artists
who have their own online comics and graphic novels. Along with
people who want to have their own. Some of them have even done
freelance for places like Marvel, so thei pro's in anyones book.
And then you have Character Creator's where you get a chance to
hang out with our very own celebrity, TBKoen - author of those
truly fantastic Predator, Spawn and Alien figures. Ok, some of you
are standing there going "Who?" Down in front. *snicker* TBK may
not be world famous yet, but give him some time - he will be.
After... once upon a time people heard the name "Boris Vallejo" and
said "Who?" ;] That's one of the reasons I keep coming back, and
hanging out in the forums and chat. As an artist... I'm a great
technician. Any chance I get to pick the brains of the truly
talented... I'm gong to grab it. And run with it. One of the things
I learned the most from was an hour long chat session with
Lalverson, and if I hadn't taken the opprotunity to avail myself of
all this site has to offer - that chance would never have come.
Hrmmm. May be I should feature chat and our chatroom regulars
someday in one of these... While I'm getting to that... I'm going
to keep wandering around interviewing mods and member and going
"Hey! Lookitthat!". And spraying for forumites... Later... Sherman
[Ironbear] Ironbear's Featured Column (click here)
Obligatory Links: [Yet again!] TBKoen's
And Lalverson's Gallery, just because I mentioned it.
character work.. a master of the craft also, IMHO. [Anyone remember
the acronyms primer?] Comics
Corner: And last but
not least - Character Creators:
Ko... so wander about and
browse and do a little "Lookitthat!" yerself, eh? And post
something... Hope this HTML stuff works - first time I've done that
trick myself. Tammy or Yvette usually does it for me. ;]
