if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Hmm... I wonder if my intense annoyance at people constantly mis-spelling WEIRD is due to something similar...

I recll Colin MacNeil staying up very late one neight (it's a bit like a feild) at the first HI-EX.  I had to head to bed and leave him drinking with the lovely Lindsay.  So unless he was drinking OJ (or pouring it in his hat), he has recovered some.


But if I wanted to, I could have outdrunk him.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Tips, you can out-drink pretty much everyone.

Except me, of course.

Just bumping this to say John Freeman has started two more threads to collect tips on writing and drawing comics:

Drawing comics:
http://downthetubes.ning.com/forum/topics/drawing-comics-useful-web

Writing comics:
http://downthetubes.ning.com/forum/topics/writing-comics-useful-links

I've thrown in some thoughts off the top of my head but it is only a small start so if anyone has anything then add it in (I'll let him know to keep an eye on this thread if you want to add it here).

Also if anyone wants to add anything on lettering and colouring I'm sure that'll come in handy too.

Just rediscovered Down The Tubes after a long while.Its changed quite a bit [updated layout recently ?] and now there is a Gallery that shows finished work and sketches etc.Its amazing what you miss sometimes.



This is good news for me as i dont like Deviantart At All and i HATE Manga so its good to find somewhere where i can look at and possibly post artwork without a never ending slew of Manga art getting in the way.

Thanks for the links.

The original site is still going strong:

http://www.downthetubes.net/

They have just split the forum aspects off to Ning and the blog to Blogspot:

http://downthetubescomics.blogspot.com/

The advantage with Ning is that there are social networking aspects and information collected on the thread can be organised on a wiki page for easier reference.

There are British comics areas over on Ning (once you've signed up to one it is easy to sign up to any others):
