What do you want to see in a GF site?

I'm asking this because I've spent the last few hours making a design for my GF site, yet want to have content (apart from my own comics/art) which are not currently on other sites.

So, what do you want to see?

do u mean team up and do a site together?, cos that aint a bad idea. well, we'll have to see what the others think. If these sites are to be hosted by the GFN then quality is important and i dont think we should just submit sites that tell us the same thing. Thats why i was reluctant to submit the one i made as i dont think i has nethin different to offer. We could have sites that specialise in certain areas, like one site could deal with fan art, another with news, another with...*searches for more ideas*(!) well u know what i mean! just an idea, but i do think its important that all hosted sites are unique and can each offer something different to the community

The only thing that I can exclusively offer is MY style of GF comics.. but I'd like to have have something else to fall back onto if I ever get annoyed with drawing them for a week or two.

The design's complete.. I'm burning through the general sections.. but I really, really need to think of something that'd make it different from the rest.

/me glares at the creative portions of the community

It's easy enough to live with. Click it every few hours and you might help Mixnmojo put their debts away, and they could be gone within some time.

I want to see me! Oh wait. Yes.


Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story

I meant my style

Glottis' Garage has had comics for a while, so it's not a new concept.. I liked your little duck thing Niko so I can't wait to see what you do with Manny

Well it could take some time. First I'm going to recreate parts of the game in comic-style just for looks, while trying to make the characters look good at the same time.

Then I'll incorporate both skills into a series of comics. I aim to release at least several pictures a week D:
