Hey you beautiful people.

been a while since I did a journal but I wanted to inform the lot of you about my next comic project.
It's called "SeasonS" and it features the 4 Seasons from tapastic.com/series/Rainy-Days (an a bunch of new characters) as they go on intense adventures to save the world.

The only way I can make it though is with your support. So please consider helping out at www.patreon.com/davestankoven?…

Thanks,

I'm not working on to secret projects. Shutup.

.com/ic has been officially shelved. We decided it's a very difficult world to convey through comics, so instead we've started work on another idea we've really wanted to make a comic about. Much less complicated. Expect the first one shortly. yay new stuff!

my co-writer, Mazzy, and I sat down last night an talked about .com/ic. We think we've fairly missed the mark we intended to hit when we first started this comic two years ago. We really want to explore these ideas that we've been working on and we've refocused what our goals for the comic are. When we started we were kind of scrambling, didn't know what we were doing, had a lot of neat ideas but no real organization to them or developed characters.

So we are restarting. Refreshing if you will. I can promise you that the pacing will be better, the art will be better, the Characters will be... well... interesting.

Sometimes you just have to know when it's not working. But we can't let this idea go.

We are also changing the name. We will probably still call it dot-comic as a nickname of sorts.

New comics coming soon. Thanks for the support you wonderful 40 people that actually follow this page.

Just curious. I'm reading the last two books of the Chronicles of Narnia.

Actually I'm here to apologize for the super late comics. The next ones will just be info cards but still. We are having a meeting this week to finish discussing where the rest of the this arch will go. We've got a lot of ideas. Also EVSG Is underway.

This would all be done but I was hired to make a video for someone and I moved back to St. Louis for two weeks before we move into our new base of operations a week from now so I've been kinda swamped. But fear not! New comics are coming! YAY!

I mean do you?

Max and I have been discussing it and the direction we are taking it. I'm afraid that we haven't given you all enough information on exactly what this whole comic world is about. We are sort of drifting in a plot that is, I guess, Interesting. But makes more sense with all the information.

What are your thoughts? We have plans to rectify the situation but I'd like to know what you think of .com/ic so far.

*By free I mean an art trade.

I'm looking for ways to practice and I figure that if people request random crap that would get me some good experience in drawing new and different things. So If you like, please send requests. I'm more likely to do them if you also send me a drawing or give me points but there's a very good chance I'll draw it.

Give it some thought.

First I want to begin by thanking :iconloppy1352: and :iconemfnatic:
These two are the most consistent watches I've got. They favorite pretty much everything and comment on stuff and it's great. That's what I expect from people on the dA community.

Now this commentary won't really apply to my dA experience because I just don't have the following for a whole lot of interaction with people. (As of this post I've only 39 watchers).

But I will talk about Facebook and how lousy people are at being social. I know people are busy. It's just the way things are. They "don't have time" for Facebook. Well right there I call bs because people make time for that stuff. People are on Facebook all the time, browsing posts and posting dumb things that don't actually mean anything. The posts give me the impression that the hundreds of people I know on Facebook basically do nothing with there time. Yet they seem often incapable of spending any time responding to each other's posts. The difference between social media and regular media is that with social you get instant feedback and communicating with the people who are consuming the media. This is a wonderful thing for feedback and just general strength of growing fanbases and whatnot. But when people either don't care to or refuse to comment on things they see, then this idea falls flat. It turns into traditional media where creators create, and consumers consume and nothing unless happens and it's whatever..

But when people like me, or anyone out there who is trying to create something and make things for other people to enjoy and consume and talk about, puts their stuff out there, we are kind of hoping we will get comments. critiques. anything. commenting spreads posts. and whether it's good or bad out stuff gets out there and maybe someone who hasn't found it yet will and will get a kick out of it.

Ok I should really get back to work. I have a paper to make stuff up for.

Anyone have any tips on animation? Specifically with flash? We are working a Faux-anime. Anything is appreciated.

SO I'm in this stasis where I have a lot of ideas for a number of different stories and I can't seem to settle down long enough to work on any of them

I have plans for an animation based on Japanese styled tv-shows (anime), a 12-part Halo 4 machinima, a new comic, a series of shorts, a novel, etc.

I'm glad I have ideas I just wish I could focus on them.

Why is a half-realistic half-cartoony anatomically correct Male so difficult to draw? Fudge.

PS Manatomy is my own made up word. Just thought of it. You can use it. But only in the context of extremely Manly Anatomy.
