Misc Projects / Re: So much for consistancy!

Wow, looks like someone didn't have enough time to work on the project anymore and just let the assistants take over.

Suggestions / Project Wonderful?
« on: October 19, 2009, 02 AM »
I was wondering if anybody here knew about Project Wonderful. It's something Ryan "Dinosaur Comics" North started up.  It's a really easy-to-join ad service that accepts fan pages and well, just about anyone.  You can put ad spaces on your page for people to bid on, and you can also bid on adspaces on other people's pages.  (My favorite thing to do is just let ad money queue up from ads on my site and then turn it around to buy advertising for my site on other sites, since PW lets you keep all your money in a special account with them until you transfer it out to PayPal.)

It hasn't made me a ton of money, but it's been a huge success with getting word out about my web serial. (Link's in my sig! You know you want to! ...Also you can see my PW adspaces in the layout.)  They don't have buggy flash ads and it's very easy to instantly 'ban' a single ad that you don't want running on your site for any reason. (I've only had to do this twice in a little under a year.)  You don't have to have the price of the ad display under your ad. (But it's recommended you keep the "your ad here" text and link or no one will know how to buy an ad!)

Can do, for both. Will post em up, uh soon. x3  The cover's a card stock that's got a marbleish texture to it.

Doujinshi / Re: Slayers Doujinshi?

I can tackle it soon, then. I'll start with Rui's - not much to translate there.  I think I have the sketch collection you're talking about:

It's a bunch of random sketches by random artists! I think the artist of Dragon Half contributed. Not much Slayers or Rui content in there, I was kinda thrown off when it came in the mail.  (Unless Rui is drawing many anime in the styles of many other artists. In which case, it's still kind of confusing.) Sherra'sboobs sketch collection is much the same.  The Lamune doujinshi has a lot more Slayers sketches in it. (Logic Fault Error)

I'll scan in something more um... plotty too. x3

Slayers: less degrees of separation than Kevin Bacon!

I've got time every Sunday! And uh, no money for beer yet, sorry. (I miss beer.  :weepygiri: )

Doujinshi / Re: Slayers Doujinshi?

I might start looking through them for something to post, then. I CAN'T READ THESE so I can't tell you if the story is any good though!  Some of these are full of bizarre 4-komas, some are super-serious (or look it at least)...

Anybody have favorite circles? I have two Shisinden (well, the only two Slayers doujinshi by them I think) and some Himuro Doll (my favorite circle even though the characters are so skinny that they're hideously deformed around the midsection/ribcage). I also have three Rui Araizumi doujinshi that are mostly sketch art/guest spots (and two Lamune stories).  (He's also done one or two Ranma 1/2 doujinshi back in the day but I never found em online other than a cover scan, which I've lost. ;_; But it certainly explains Sherra's Ranma design homage.)

...Speaking of Sherra, here's the cover of one of those:

Anyway, I'll see if I can pick out a fav and then start getting scans up in a week or so. I freelance from home so I'm gonna try reserving fanwork for Sundays, when I force myself not to do any business.  Right now I'm still house-cleaning though. x_x

please be an editor, oh plz, plz, plz.

Does editor = scan editing/photoshopping, or is it text-based (as in finding typos and editing for flow and such)? I have both abilities. (And will have enough posts to see the app board soon I guess. x3 )

EDIT: And thank you for the compliments on my gallery! (Short attention span from late lunchtime!) Yup, fantasy's my primary bag, for art and for writing.

Slayers / Re: New Light Novel Covers!

Took about a million years to scan and clean too, laaaaaaawl

This looks beautiful, thanks for editing and posting!

I didn't know they were released with new covers. Now I feel like I have to replace my old ones...

Doujinshi / Re: Slayers Doujinshi?

Oh goodness, I've got a whole stack of Slayers doujinshi I've never scanned.  General/parody, BL, yuri, hentai, you name it.  Bought most of em in lots a few years back.  Most are Xelloss/mazoku-centric, and I have a lot of Xel/Lina stuff (My favorite pairing, though I'm good for pretty much any pairing a fan can muster if it's well-done/funny enough).  I've got everything from Xel/Gourry gag pairing to all of the cast dressed as gun-toting nuns.

I have a scanner too, but I'm not really enthused about ripping the binding for flat scans.  Unless there was a good way to archive em afterwards... I really wouldn't mind sharing these with a bunch of Slayers fans instead of just hoarding them to myself where they just stay on a shelf most of the time, you know?  Might be able to get away with not debinding, though.

Anyway, this thread seems to have died out back in July so I'm not sure if there's much interest. nn;

I've been on hiatus from fandom for awhile but I used to do a lot of Slayers fanart and fanfiction.  I saw the Hourglass of Falces manga up on OneManga today and was pretty excited to see someone was doing Slayers translation work!  Also there's a lot of Slayers fandom in general here, it seems, and I miss Slayers fandom.

So if I can pass muster I would like to help in any way I can with stuff. <3  I look forward to, um, passing the five-post test!  Looking at the discussions on the boards, I'm sure it won't be hard to talk a lot here.
