Lots of various updates to go through. Up first is the Geek Roundup. The website now has its full cast of writers pumping out stories. So far, the writers are living in Korea, Canada, Finland and Singapore. Quite a diverse mix. The stories have reflected just as much diversity with films, gaming, YouTube, TV shows and books being entry subjects.
After someone writes an entry for the site, I try to update the slider with an appropriate pic with Photoshop. Sometimes I’m a little slow, though.
On the Facebook side of things, the CN fanpage has been updated to reflect the new Timeline functionality. Shout-out to Michael for bringing it to my attention when I woke up this morning. He had updated his page and I got to work on mine. I had access to my personal profile’s timeline back in September and have been waiting for the pages to join the fun. The Crimson North Facebook page is now up to speed. If you go down the timeline you can see important dates in CN history. The earliest ones have to do with my webcomic endeavours.
Once I finished with the CN fanpage, I got to work on the YouTube page. When YT rolled out the new channel design, they stripped a lot of the customization out. They finally put it back in, and now you can fool around with your background as before. I decided I would crank out a new design for the channel and make use of the real estate on widescreen monitors. I don’t know what it looks like on lowres screens, but here’s what it looks like on mine:
It’s snazzy enough for now.
I haven’t updated the Sanctuary yet, but I don’t think it really needs anything. The current design is simple and clean, and I fear I would only make it cluttered.
On the Future Front
I have several short webcomic ideas I wouldn’t mind rolling out in the near future. I have recently decided it would probably work best if I mix traditional methods with digital, rather than restrict myself to just one. My traditional drawing looks too stiff, and my digital drawing lacks control. Therefore I will employ both methods to create the finished product. I have already begun experimenting.
I have recently thought of a new video series to do, and I can’t believe no one else thought of it yet. The problem is that I might rack up too many hits, and I don’t really want to become a YouTube sensation. It would sort of fit in with the Sanctuary blog, but I could also see it become a hotbed for endless arguments. We’ll have to see.
