...And now I have no clue what to do with it.

Everyone's telling me "Oh, you have to get on Patreon! You'll make so much money!" And frankly, I do need the scratch for a new computer (this one is far too old and slow to run efficiently anymore - I can't be on the Internet for more than five seconds without getting a "Warning: Unresponsive Script" message). So I signed up - and now I don't know what I'm supposed to do next.

That's my page up there. As you can see, it's totally empty. How does this work? Do I have a gallery like on DeviantArt? If I do, I can't see where I'm supposed to submit things to it. Anybody care to educate me on what exactly goes on here?

Edit: I think I got it figured out now - my page is looking much more substantial at the moment. If you want to donate, go right ahead! :)

Do you think Off the Deep End can work as a continuing series? Be honest! 

109 deviants said Yes! The characters are interesting and the concept is unique!
36 deviants said No! It's too obscure and self-indulgent to attract a wide audience!

Wow! :O_o: One day I'll be tall and strong like you and I'll have my own haters who despise my taste and take weeks to find strength to leave. A sort of a compliment =D

Hehehe... Oh yes, I went there. ;) ;P

Bandai knows how to make great toys. And if you don't know what Bandai is, well...…

Kinda explains why they picked the designs for the heroes' suit, doesn't it?

I can see we're not going to get along anymore, JB... so consider this goodbye. I'm just going to worry about my own self from now on and leave you to do and like whatever you want without having my two cents thrown in.

I looked up to you a lot when I first came here, but you go your own way as a cartoonist and I'll go mine.

Well, for crying out loud, you don't need to stop talking to me altogether just because I like Wreck-It Ralph and Big Hero 6 and you don't. You're the one who chooses to bring it up every time I post fan art for a non-traditionally animated Disney movie. You already know that I'm not of the same opinion as you, so you don't need to keep trying to change my mind. But that's no reason to retreat into a corner and act all mopey about it.

But if it's really that important to you, if you sincerely believe that all your friends need to feel the same way about Disney animation as you do in order for you to truly consider them friends, then I can't change your mind any more than you can change mine. But I feel like you're going to remain a thoroughly unhappy person if you stay in that mindset.

the only time i don't like cgi, is when they take a classic cartoon like inspector gadget and turn to a cgi train wreck. but it's something created from scratch like frozen then i'm okay it. i'm not trying to start a 2d vs cgi flame war just saying :)

Well, to me, it all depends on how it's done. For instance, Disney did that Mickey Mouse short last year, "Get a Horse", where Mickey pops out of the movie screen and becomes a three-dimensional being. But the way the animated him, he still felt like Mickey, and the gags that accompanied the animation were side-splittingly funny.

On the other hand, Warner Bros. did some CGI Looney Tunes cartoons a few years ago where the characters just sort of went through the same stock expressions we've already seen a bunch of times, and the animation seemed more focused on simulating fur and feathers and realistic explosions and throwing stuff in the audience's face because hey, it's in 3-D, than conveying solid comedy acting. I didn't find those to be nearly as impressive.

Frozen was originally going to be 2D, though. It wasn't created from scratch so much as they took a 2D movie and forced it to be CGI.

Well maybe you're just not what I like to see anymore in artists that I want to admire. After all, I loved what Chris Sanders made at Disney with Lilo & Stitch, and what is he doing now? He's helping DreamWorks: a studio that couldn't care less about what happens to 2D animation, and the one I like to blame the most for turning Disney away from 2D animation themselves.
