    Ok so now that you've drawn out and scanned in your art how do you post it to the forum???

    First you need to upload it to a photo server such as www.imageshack.com or www.photobucket.com or for a more basic simple one http://img223.exs.cx if you're having trouble doing this contact me and I'll help you out. Once you have it uploaded to the site it should give you a couple url's you can use. Simply copy those urls and paste them into the message body of your post using the "Img" or "URL" tags if you need to. Then post a caption explaining your work and any other information you feel to be relevent. Good luck

      If I may make a suggestion Byrd...

      If you've got the experience, computer, and connection, you can download Apache and host it yourself.

      I know not many people'd do this (cept for me :P) just a suggestion...

        Doesn't that require that your computer stay on indefinately for the rest of us to see it?

            lol, that's ok.

            I just had to make sure we knew all the consequences of using it that's all.

              Yep. :thumbsup:

              Normally you shouldn't leave a PC on fulltime (but everytime you turn it back on it suffers from a 600% current surge), but since I run servers off Linux, meh...

                  Well, it would help on surges...

                  Is it safe ? Depends. You got a good HARDWARE firewall when you access the internet ? You keep your Windows (or other OS) updated ? Do you use proxies when you do things on the internet (HTTP, IRC, ect) ? Do you even leave it on the internet 24/7 ?

                      I would like to suggest that people use photobucket and not imageshack. Imageshack is very spammy

                                    picoodle.com is worth a try, or you could always use those brackets for a URL from any artwork from deviant art that you've done
