RULES

1. - You must posts these rules.
2. - Each person has to share 10 things about them
3. - Answer the 10 questions asked to you and invent 10 questions the people you tag will have to answer.
4. - Choose 10 people and put their icons on your journal
5. - Go to their page to inform them they are tagged
6. - Not something like " you are tagged if you read that"
7. - You have to legitimately tag 10 people
8. - No tag-backs
9. - You can’t say that you don't do tags.
10. - YOU MUST MAKE A JOURNAL ENTRY. NO COMMENTS. Unless you're commenting about the actual entry.

Ten things about me:
1. I've never considered myself a cat person, but I absolutely adore my cat, Remy, and talk about him a lot.
2. I suffer from social anxiety problems and frequently worry if I'm bothering others or miscommunicated what I was meaning.
3. I'm almost 31 and recently moved back in with my mother and her three dogs.
4. All of my closest friends live far away and I would have never met them if it weren't for the internet.
5. I'm married, but separated on good terms with my husband (we're very good friends, but have trouble living together).
6. I can't stand living alone. Even if I'm quiet and keep to myself mostly, I like having someone nearby so I don't feel lonely.
7. I love working with traditional media over digital, though digital costs less and it's easier to make mistakes without wasting any supplies.
8. I will never join Facebook.
9. I love just about anything animated.
10. I've followed a lot of artists' work for ages, but I'm usually too intimidated to talk to them because I don't want to come off as creepy and I know some of them get really awful hate-mail and threats and stuff, and I understand why they're standoffish, but it still scares me. I see other artists as comrades or role-models, not competition, and I wanna be friends.

:iconlululunabuna:'s questions:

1. Favorite color?

2. Favorite video game!
Chrono Trigger!
3. What's your birthstone?
Blue topaz/turquoise/tanzanite, depending on who you ask. If I could choose from the three, it would be tanzanite.
4. East coast or west coast?
West!
5. Desktop, laptop, or tablet?
Desktop. Sometimes laptop.
6. Windows 8, yes or fuck no?
Aw hell no.
7. Need glasses? If so, nearsighted? Farsighted? No-sighted? Astigmatism?
Since 2nd grade. I'm nearsighted, and I think there's astigmatism involved.
8. Sophie's choice! Favorite pet of all time!!
I want a pet fox like woah. Everything I read about them, it's like they're the coolest aspects of having a dog and a cat in one animal.
9. What do you wish you were doing right now?
Doing art. Man, motivation is hard. I want to get started on my webcomic.
10. When did you first get on the internet?
Summer of... '97? Somewhere around there. When AOL was the shit, man.

My Questions:
1. What do you listen to when you want to concentrate?
2. Who inspires you to be a better person?
3. What is your favorite color?
4. Digital or traditional art?
5. Do you have a book recommendation?
6. Have you watched anything good lately?
7. Boxers or briefs?
8. Where would you like to live if money was no object?
9. Soup or salad?
10. What's your favorite toy/figurine/action figure in your possession?

I tag:

Don't think I can manage 10.. there's so few people I'd be comfortable tagging that haven't already been tagged.
meoshira, ParadoxicalSilence, MegumiTierana, Cryptic-Alchemist, SweetIntoxikation86, AmadisAmaranth, and anyone else who'd like to do this. :3

Gentle Soul by Paragons-Saga
Gentle Soul
My first D&D character, Dylanthor Alenuath. Half Moon Elf, half Ghaele Aasimar crusader (fighter/cleric dual class) of Selune. He resides in Waterdeep. Preferred weapon: partisan.

Despite his martial training, he's a very gentle soul.

Dylan S.L. Vegsund
D&D belongs to WOTC, Forgotten Realms is the brainchild of Ed Greenwood. In other words, not me.

So, after some advice, I've joined the Tumbles.

slvegsund.tumblr.com/ = my general everything side.
paragons-saga.tumblr.com/ = my art and resource side.

This will be where I host my webcomic until I can gain an audience and either enough grasp on web design to get my website designed (I already have it hosted: paragons-saga.com/) or enough income to hire someone to design it for me.

So in the interest of casting a wide net for gaining information..

Does anyone have any tips for crowdsourcing (kickstarter/indiegogo), and gaining an audience?

I want to go forward with my webcomic and get it started. The story and the characters are all there. I've been working on the world for the last 15 years. I have a website bought and paid for. I'm having trouble figuring out where to go from there. I don't have a logo or banners or anything. I don't really have much skill with making them. I don't have much skill with web design with the tools I'm given. I could commission someone to take care of that stuff for me, but I lack money. I've been advised to get started and gain an audience before doing a kickstarter, but my resources are kind of bupkis and I don't know how to get started with what I have.

I have plans to get back to working part time, but with that, I run the risk of burnout. When I'm working too much at a job that sucks out my soul, I have a hard time getting the energy to draw or work on anything serious. I don't want to start loathing my story because I'm too tired to enjoy it. I'm also scared of marketing because I don't have a lot of self-confidence so I have a lack of comprehension of "what I deserve" vs. "I'm being a selfish, arrogant shithead".

So I'm asking for help.

Any advice, suggestions on things to look into. Anything, really. I'm trying desperately not to lose my enthusiasm to all the anxiety of everything I'm lacking for getting started. For the money issue. I'm not looking to make a fortune or anything. Just what I'd need to get rolling, to help out with the bills, and be able to enjoy a few other creature comforts. But that even feels enormous.

Anything is appreciated, so long as it's constructive.

Okay, so.. first off, I've moved again. Situation had me move back in with my mother. But it means I can go back to school, spend some time with my family, work on my webcomic, save up money, get a new car, and I get to keep my idiot cat.

Secondly, Sailor Moon Crystal! Eeeeeeeee! This reboot to follow the manga more closely has me so insanely happy.. and it's so prettyful! Aww

John Barrett gave me your deviant art link. I've created a Kalamazoo comix facebook page.

[link]

Hope to get a bunch of alumni from that time period in one place. Maybe even do a new free downloadable issue, not sure, have to see how many are interested. Anyways, hope you'll LIKE the page if you are on facebook. Currently I'm scanning and adding the back issues. Two down, three more to go.

Oh, hi!

I don't think I remember a John Barrett, but I am most definitely a Loy Norrix alumni and I was in KVCC for a while until I moved to Oregon. Unfortunately, I do not Book Face, so I cannot add to your collection at all. But I really appreciate the invitation!
