My regular e-mail has been causing trouble lately.  If you've submitted a contest entry but haven't heard from me that I received it, DevNote me so I can give you my back-up e-mail address.  If you haven't sent it in yet, DevNote me for the back-up address anyway.

Because of this e-mail nonsense, I've nudged the deadline back to June 23rd.

So is it terrible that I want to make fan characters for Harbourmaster?  ^^;  Do you have any sort of policy on fanfic?  Or would you rather people left your 'verse alone?

Given how much fanfic I've written over the years, it'd be jerk of me to be all 'no fic'.  And I think it's super cool that someone is inspired by something I've done.  But you can't make more money off it than I do ( so stay below zero. ;) )

Beyond that, the one thing I will hold firm forever on is Aquaan skin colours.  They're brown.  I don't care if they're great bioengineers and could change their skin colour if they wanted to.  They don't want to.

( They could bioengineer up a beard, though, if one decided that facial hair was cool. )

Thank you.  :)  I have no intention of making money off of your work, I simply love the universe you've created enough to want to explore it a bit more.  And thanks for the note on the Aquaans.

...if I have to stay below zero, does that mean I pay you for doing fanwork?  ;)  :XD:

Didn't figure you'd be getting paid for it, but I thought I should add the standard boilerplate of Just In Case. ;)

Ha!  I don't think I'm at the licensing stage quite yet. ;)

Holy crap.

Okay so I browsed DA looking for "male dollmakers" because there are precious few of them out there and I needed to make another dozen or so dollz for a project.

Came across the Monteblanc maker.

Made my dollz.

Looked through your gallery.

... Started reading your webcomic at around 11 last night. ....stayed up until 2 halfway through it and finally finished.

Yup. Just. Holy crap. :) Awesome work. My only critique on the comic is that sometimes the skintones are so dark that it's hard to see the details or expressions on faces. Aside from that, ... yup. :) Wow. Really looking forward to how all of it will turn out, because you've done such a great job holding my attention. Love Tal and some of his dialog (my name ends in 'the fifty-seventh' lol!!) is really telling of the depth to his character.

Keep it up. Bookmarked, enjoying. Will also link to the dolls I made when it's all finished, though I will admit I frankened some of their arms (because 15 of the same dude even flipped around... kind of sometimes looked like they were cupping each other's crotches and that idea after having read the comic is SO MUCH FUNNIER now...). They'll be completely unrelated to well, anything that you've done :)

Welcome aboard.  So now I know it takes, what, six hours to get through the archives? ;)

Maybe my screen is set lighter than yours - I can read everyone fine.  How it will all turn out won't be for some time - there's eight 'books' planned and we're just about halfway through Book Two. ;)

Messing with the dolls frankenstyle is fine.  All's I'm interested in is credit for the game.

Eeeee :) Well, can't wait, because yay another really good webcomic. They're getting harder to find, at least ones I *enjoy*, rather than ones I'm introduced to and follow because (fill in the blank, it's a friend's work, it's linked from another I do like, etc).

Yes, it took another 3+ hours to get through the archives fully.

One thing on the site maybe to add: a pronunciation guide? I remember seeing comments about naming and the like here, but no guide over there.

I definitely will link here and to the site, because, awesome dolls.

You see the new Godzilla yet?

Not yet.  That's one I keep thinking I ought to actually get out and go to the theatre for, since the scale of Godzilla means it'd look better on a big screen than a small, and I've heard generally positive things about it.

The one criticism I agree about it is that Big G himself probably doesn't have as much screen time as he ought to.  But overall I thought it was a pretty damn good and fun Godzilla film.  Plus, there are certain things in it that I would fully expect you to make fan art of.
