A few changes…

After some painstaking adjustments and tweaks, I have given the new site quick face-lift. I added a new dynamic logo and some other changes that I think make the site a bit more pleasing to the eye.

I also activated commenting for post. No annoying memberships required. Just enter you name and e-mail address and flame away!

Just no spamming.

(Almost) pulling my hair out.

Well I had some trouble posting today’s comic.  Not good for the second issue; but its a learning process, right?  I should have prepped the comic last night to automatically post at midnight on Tuesday.  Instead I walked into work this morning and realized I didn’t have today’s issue on my pocket hard drive.  Oops.

It’s not THAT big a deal.  I did post the first issue last Tuesday night.  Plus since I’m just starting out so it’s not as if the site is getting a billion hits a day.  But I’m a bit of a perfectionist, you see.  And not being ready on the second week of the site was disappointing.

Spreading the Knowledge

Just wanted to make mention of a few books I’ve been perusing lately, for those out there interested in web comics and their development.

I’ve found How to Make Webcomics particularly useful. It covers just about everything you want to know, from start to finish.

Also Hi-Fi Color For Comics is a great technical book, for those of you who are interested in how to professionally color their comics.

Keep reading and keep learning!

Share and share alike!

Hey, I just added a new ‘share’ feature to the site!  That means if there is a comic or post you really like, you can share it with your friends on your favorite social website.  Just click on the share button below the comic and select how you would like to share it (you can also e-mail it to anyone).

Check it out, and have fun!

The Site is Live!

After many months of toiling work and planning, www.talesofmaora.com is finally live!

I plan to utilize this web space, firstly as a home to my new webcomic, “The Wizard of Quippley,” but also to eventually promote my other creative endeavors.

This blog of course will be where I rant and fume and occasionally, blog about my creative process.

So if anyone is viewing this, thank you.  Please bookmark this web site and come back often.  I promise there will be plenty of good stuff to see!
