Re: Your Webcomic Process

I think your process is very organized and it does make for a professional looking comic. I'm not as concerned with having a consistent look. I just want to use whatever gets my point across in the way I want. So most of the time that's using a pen on paper, scanning it, then I use gimp to adjust co...

Keepass can be of service here and it's good security to be as paranoid about your secret questions as you are choosing passwords. The great thing for BHG here is that the masses will not significantly change this behavior until the browser or OS start to compare the usernames and passwords they use.

Just comics. I noticed that pen* thing as I worked with the domain yesterday but it's subliminal enough that I won't worry about it. Now that the name is behind me, I'm looking forward to ignoring it completely by making things that aren't simple or don't come from a pen or aren't art.
