Zombie General Discussions / Zombie Research Help!
« on: July 20, 2012, 06:29:16 PM »
Okay I've got a project I could use some help with.

I want to research and do a comic about every type of undead there is.  I'm not talking about D & D undead, however.  I'm talking about actual cultural/mythological undead, ghosts, vampires etc.

I'll be doing research on the culture that created them, the time period the mythology came from things like that.

Here's where I need help.  What types of undead are out there?  Every culture has had them.  But I need examples and origins things like that.

Example

Zombie mythology
Origin: Haiti, Voodoo, African Religions
Time period the mythology comes from: ?
Actual historical descriptions of the creature/powers/lore: ?

I'll be making comics about this and will happily give you credit for the help you give.

Things to research so far.
Zombies (of Course)
Vampires
Ghosts
Banshee
Ghouls (Middle Eastern Monster)
Chinese Vampires (Jiang Shi or the hopping vampire or zombie)
Draugr (Norse mythological undead not the ones from Skyrim)

Maybe I'll even make a poster about all these.  What do you guys think?

Today I learned I can fit three whole Del Taco tacos in my mouth and not choke to death.

I take pride in this knowledge.

When I'm not drawing, I fish.  I'm a lousy fisherman, but I love it anyway.
Here's my epic catch.

I don't think I ever shared this sculpture I did for my Boss before.  Check this out.




Here's me giving the dino a little "Sugar"

BTW, check out that creepy dude's tiny tiny black beady eyes.  He is one scary looking dude.

I'm in the process of making more of these.  They are kind of fun.  I put together a small horde with my kids a month ago..... Then we killed them.

General Discussion / @#$*!! Spammers
« on: September 13, 2011, 07:15:26 AM »
The boards been the target of spammers lately.  Thanks to all of you who've reported the activity.  I really appreciate that and it helps me stay on top of this stuff.

I hate spammers with a fiery hate I usually reserve for ex-spouses, politicians, and end of year taxes.

I spent all of my time yesterday that I could have been posting fun stuff clearing out these bogus spam accounts.

Looks like I'm going to need to tighten up the sign in requirements.  Sorry about this to any new people.

Forum Rules and FAQ's / How to post pictures.... Not necked ones.
« on: August 30, 2011, 10:59:23 PM »
I'll post a better tutorial later when I'm not so tired.

First, the forum doesn't allow attatchments for bandwidth reasons, but you can still post pictures.  You just need a photobucket account.

http://photobucket.com/

It's free and lets you make galleries and search for photos to add to your own galleries.

When you've got a picture in your gallery, mouse over it and it will have some code options below it you can simply copy and paste into your posts.  It will be the code with the "img" tags around it.

Poof like magic your image will appear and you will have a warm glow of accomplishment that borders on the obscene.  I know your excited.

I love doing these, but eventually I'm going to run out of main character to draw.  Eventually I'll be down to.... that Whale Biologist guy who takes care of Mushu, the whale who thinks he's better than you.

Then I'll be sad.

Forum Rules and FAQ's / Forum Rules (Please Read)
« on: August 28, 2011, 03:02:42 PM »
The Rules

1.  Don't be a dick
This "SHOULD" be obvious, but still needs to be said.  Don't be a dick.  Look there are over six billion people on this planet.  Everyone has there own opinion of things and they probably don't agree with you nor you with them.

Never the less, be polite when on the forum.  Don't say things to people you wouldn't say to them in real life.  Don't be a troll, don't be a dick.

2.  NO PORN!, No NSFW stuff, No "Hot Girl/Guy" threads

Look I like boobs as much as the next guy (Probably more so), but this forum is not the place for it.  Even though I try to discourage it my nine year old son and my Mom read my comic.  The internet is full of that type of thing, I just can't have it here.

NO REALLY I WON"T PUT UP WITH THIS TYPE OF THING.

Don't post porn, or any links to porn, or anything like that or I will track you down and do painful things to you.  I live in Utah, miles and miles and miles of barren desert in which it would be pretty easy for me to hide a body.  I'm just saying.

3.  Nothing Illegal Please
This is a no brainer, but I can't have anything that's illegal on the forum especially when I could be held responsible for it.  I'm short, and I'm pretty.... I wouldn't do well in prison. 

Do not use this forum to distribute any stolen media or goods.  Plagiarism will also not be tolerated.

4.  Racism is bad, don't do it.

Isn't this supposed to be a more enlightened time?  I think we can all behave ourselves and not say or do offensive things because of someone else's race, gender, or sexual orientation.  Be tolerant, be polite.

5.  Swearing.
I don't care if you swear.... within reason.  Did I mention my son and mom read this forum.  So I don't want to see the "F Bomb" dropped all over the place and in depth discussions about your genitalia.  I'd appreciate it if well all self moderate that type of thing.

6.  Good forum behavior please.

Stick to forum topics, don't resurrect old threads, don't insult people,  Don't say anything you wouldn't say with your kindly old grandmother watching.

7.  Plugging yourself
I'm not against people plugging their stuff, but if that's the ONLY reason you've come to the forum It's going to piss me off.

Now if you are an active member of the community, that's different and we happily promote things for friends of "The Zombie Nation"

7.  Keep Things Small

Please don't post GINORMOUS pictures or fifty pictures at a time.  Keep your signatures small... etc.

Just use common sense please.


NOTE: Running a forum is a new experience for me.  I'm sure I'm bound to make some mistakes, so please don't be offend if I screw something up.  Any help you can give me running this thing is appreciated

My whole goal with this is to foster a fun environment that other like minded zombie fans can come together and share.  Lets all keep this friendly and fun.



Thanks for all your support.   ;D
