img180I’m trying out Tumblr Crosspostr with Leif & Thorn. If you’re reading this on Tumblr, it’s working!

Especially curious about how the image (on the original post, it’s a right-aligned thumbnail) is going to turn out.

(ETA: the image turns out terrible. Will remember to be wary of that in the future.)

Over on BICP, I’m field-testing the much-more-heavy-duty Social Network Auto Poster for Tumblr crossposting. It can do a bunch of other sites too — but I’m already using the nice lightweight Social to broadcast to Twitter and Facebook, and don’t have accounts on any of the rest.

Going purely by the setup options, I’m liking Crosspostr better. It lets you pick a set of default tags to add to every crosspost! With SNAP, you either have to do that manually, or start adding your webcomic name as a tag to every post. On its own site.

You can kick it off with Bilingual Bonus, Empathy Pet, Call A Smeerp A Rabbit, Cool Sword, Has Two Mommies, and maybe Norse by Norsewest.

Plus a few tropes about diplomacy, knighthood, and gardening? And while my searches are coming up empty on it, there’s got to be one for Introduced Surrounded By Flowers.

This current storyline is going to add a few good ones to the pile, too. Details will be obvious by Sunday….

Color-coded languages in transcripts!

I’m taking the plunge and color-coding the languages in the comic transcripts. Not for every strip ETA, a year and a half later: now for every strip! Including all Ceannis natives speaking Ceannic, and all Sønheim natives speaking Sønska.

(Other languages may be added as needed.)

Read an updated transcript to see the colors in action!

If these don’t work for you for some reason — colorblindness, a bad monitor, whatever — but you’re running Firefox or Chrome, you can customize the appearance on your end. Add Stylish for Firefox or Stylish for Chrome to your browser, and create a new style with the following text:

@namespace url(http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml);

@-moz-document domain("leifandthorn.com") {
.ceannic {
color: #496F2B;
}

.sonska {
color: #3B2775;
}

}

Then modify however you like. Overwrite the colors, change the font, anything else CSS can do.

Artist’s birthday present to herself: a brand-new domain name.

That’s right, I’m taking the plunge. Coming to this site in, like, a week: sparkly new webcomic Leif & Thorn.

You can find all the character art currently posted on Deviantart, or (ironically) on the But I’m A Cat Person tumblr. There will be a dedicated L&T tumblr at some point! Stick around.
