It took a bit of time but the group is finally under reconstruction! Some new features have been added, the rules have been updated, some cleaning up has been(and is continuing to be) done, and we are looking for extra helping hands!

:new:New Features :new:
-New folders for submission. I am still considering breaking down the alphabet further, but because it would require a lot of work and DA has been glitching with the folders enough as it is, for now the alphabetical order is in tact.
-Creator's Pick allows dedicated comic creators to choose their favorite page to feature in this folder. See the Overview and FAQ for more details.
-Comic Back Covers gives creators a chance to submit a back cover for their comic containing a picture+overview of their comic. This will make it easier for new readers to find comics they like. See the Overview and FAQ for more details.
-Featured will now contain all new comic pages submitted throughout the week. It will reset every Sunday.
-Every month a new comic will be featured in a journal. The comic that is featured will be chosen at random from all comics that submit a page within the previous month to encourage activity.
-Volunteers may choose to list themselves as reviewers, and people looking for reviewers can find a reviewer to suit their needs (art, technicals, characters, story, etc)
-The Comic Directory is under heavyconstruction. See the Comic Directory page and FAQ for more details.


:bulletred:Changes:bulletred:
-I removed many of the old folders which I believed had no purpose; many of which were empty.
-All old covers will be removed from the Featured section if they do not meet the new guidelines (having at least 5 pages)
-Front page has been redesigned.
-Some changes have been made to the rules and submission policies.


:lightbulb: Help Wanted! :lightbulb:
-Looking for staff members! Duties include: accepting deviations, updating featured folder, helping with journals, updating directory, and more!
-Looking for volunteer reviewers!


:thumbsup:Questions for you! :thumbsdown:
-Should we have a member class for veteran comic creators (15+ pages) to be able to submit their comic without the need for staff approval?
-Should we sort comics in a different way? This would require going through the folders and possibly removing inactive works.
-Should we have a folder in favorites for promotional work or fan art?
-If we held contests, would you be interested in competing?
-If we held collaborations for comic creators, would you be interested in joinin?
-What other features would you like to see?

I have a very simple question. I read your rules about submissions. I noticed that is says "Comic covers should be submitted into favorites." I tried doing what you told me to do, though there is no such thing as actually submitting to favorites. Can you help me with this?

There seems to have been a problem with the permissions with the favorite folders; it should be fixed.

However, as per rules you need at least 5 pages before submitting a cover.

I feel like I have messed up with my comic, It wasn't until a friend here on DA pointed out that she couldn't follow whats happening at all (this along with other stating that they were confused as well), it's only in the prologue pages right now, I wanted to see what people thought before really getting into my first chapter and the prologue was suppose to have an air of mystery,
But I've been told that rather be mysterious it's just confusing :(

I layed the pages out before me and really looked at what was happening from a readers point of view, without the writers insight, and realized that by page 4 I started rushing things, I no longer was drawing panels out one scene right after another and instead kept jumping forward! I see now that I started moving to quickly and pacing things too differently than when the prologue started.

I want to restart and pace things better and use the art tips that was given to me by other DA artist who reviewed my earlier pages, but I don't know, should I just upload the the latest page that I have drawn out then immediately do a restart? I can't really get myself motivated to finish a prologue which in my eyes seems to have gone horribly wrong!!! :(

Anyone got any advise? Has anyone done restarts like this? The story and what is happening is exactly the same, many of the scenes will be redrawn as they are now in fact, it's just I need to add more panels to help pace things out better so that what's happening isn't so confusing --  Here's a link to the folder holding the pages, just from looking at the panels in the folder without clicking into any of thems, it is obvious now as to how the scenes are getting confusing and start jumping around, pages are i n order from bottom right to top left (my first pages have no colour) ...  crimsonalpha.deviantart.com/ga…

Hit me up a note; I still give critique and advise to those that ask. I can be harsh when it's critique about plot and characters, but with the physicality of layouts, formatting, and the technicals, I can temper myself some. It's daunting when someone points out a major flaw, but to grow we have to take those comments to heart I suppose. That's the nature of the beast :tea:
