On the subject of Facebook

I have been investing some time and energy into making small improvements to the technical aspects of publishing this comic strip, namely this website and our Facebook page. Most of these will be small, e.g. the system of label organization. I'm going to put ads here eventually, and it may be fairly soon. Don't worry, it won't be terrible.

Anyway, I spent yesterday and today putting together a snazzy new profile picture for our Facebook page:
Whatcha think?
I'll be changing the text on the t-shirt about as often as I upload a new comic, so keep your eyes out for that. I'll keep all of them in the site's Picasa Album (you can find the link to it whenever you want on the Gallery page). They'll probably be near the back, until I come up with some reorganization for it, too. The changing t-shirt isn't something I'll announce on Facebook, so consider yourselves more favored.

Anyway, it seems that a username is now a viable option for our Facebook page. It will make it easier to promote the page, since Facebook is so convenient for everyone. I'm considering "EVcomics," but if you have something more exciting, please let me know.
I have already made the username. We are http://www.facebook.com/EVcomics

Anyway, dinner's ready and I am hungry, so I'll stop blathering now.
'K, bye.

I also have, like eight leaf energies from the card game.

≤Relevant: Emoticons - Notepad.

It's not like I've forgotten to make EV stuff. It's just that I've been making other stuff, too. I'm not using filler art because I don't have anything better. I'm using filler art because I have some other stuff, and my "anything better" still needs ink before it's finished.

That said, the point of this post is so I can show you something kinda cool that I made. It's called a Notepad Animation, and here's one I made a little while ago.



Notepad animations have long been one of my favorite things to make, although it wasn't after I discovered Unicode emoticons that I was able to make something really worth watching.

≤Relevant: Dobby Lick Icon

Okay, so the protests are over. We won.
Let's talk about something happy, like Dobby from Harry Potter.

≤Relevant: Oh no. Not more of this!

After months of trying to get cooperation from a stranger across the internet, I decided to rip my own sound effects from our old "Hey you, Pikachu!"
The end result?


Also, I've made a parody of lick icons.

≤Relevant: Majora's Mask image and video

Whoo. This took too much time, yet I got it done faster than I expected. I figured I should show it off to you. It's a full-color and exhaustively detailed picture depicting various characters from the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, as chibis.


I made it so I could put it to a song I recorded a few months ago, and post it to YouTube, which I have already done. Hopefully, it will catch on. I'm working it as hard as I can.



Funny, I hope? They're Majora's Mask jokes, so if you feel oblivious, it's probably my fault.

New Page!

What's a New Year without a resolution? I have an idea for one: learn to draw!

I'll be teaching anime drawing tutorials this summer, called Teach Me Anime! They're going to be effective, fun lessons for beginners, or not-so-beginners wanting to brush up or learn a new style! I cannot use enough exclamation marks! YAY!

I'd appreciate it if you would tell your friends about it! Check this site for updates and new information; it will all be on the official Teach Me Anime webpage.

Until then, ciao!
