Incoming rant for those who care, which I hope is not too complicated (and no, this is not April Fools.)

I currently have a dilemma that is affecting the activity of this thread: It is not a fault of the site (otherwise I would've posted this in the Getting Better section) but that of my tablet, of all things! paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif Amazon recently updated parts of my Fire tablet, including how I can upload pictures. Before this update, I could upload straight from my tablet's photo gallery (where all my artwork is, as well as pictures I've taken/downloaded to post to other threads later) instantly without problems. Now, when I want to 'Add files' onto this website, it automatically takes me to a different place which isn't my photo gallery where I'm supposed to upload pictures from. The problem is this new place is across everything on my tablet and takes forever to load. Just now, I was going to upload a teaser for my near finished Beatley comic strip. I waited about 10 mins for the new place to load before giving up. I thought it must've been something to do with the amount of pictures I have stored on my photo gallery, so I went there and deleted 54 copies, drafts, pictures I've already posted etc. and tried again. This time, I waited 15 mins for this thing to load before giving up again. It's honestly driving me around the bend.

I feel by the time it will eventually load, the web page will refresh itself, meaning I will have to go through it all again. I really hope this doesn't mean I cannot post anything visual here again. In the meantime, I will try and delete some more old stuff from my gallery to see if that decreases the waiting time, as well as contact support and do some other things to see what is affecting it. The solution may be to get some sort of extension lead and upload pictures onto the site from my parents computer, but I don't know if I can find or buy an extension lead ATM. If the case is that this new thing will prevent me from uploading artwork for good and I can't find a solution, I will try and continue keep this thread running with poems/stories I make up and the occasional SoundCloud demo every now and then.

Hope you are able to understand my situation here. The rant is over! a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Oh no, that's very bad news. Is there not a setting you can change somewhere?a-hard-days-night-paul-10heart Here's hoping that the problem does get solved as quickly as possible.

I think I may have found a possible solution! mccartney-shrug_01_gifI found out I can still upload pictures to my Google account from my tablet's photo gallery (but I still don't know why it won't let me do that here anymore and instead goes to the other place) so I can try and copy and paste them from there to here. The only problem is that it has to be a link to the picture instead of the picture actually appearing here. I tried putting .jpg on the end, but that doesn't work.

As a test, here's George, which was the teaser of the comic strip I was going to upload yesterday:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/6ZLz330qBh4xQc4jdlGoS6Tzd0BtJ7TqsVuL9U5spDK6VHEww0VZPnJObtZxYdocziGZ1cLXYVBYMcf1E7aPE-Oraus0MLSjGIHmoG4WbUgTtoqplrCSFloTbJKkvfFuqxEObLTOs42o8ugFNlhzm9owPYK2mzvZP7CxEtq2LaBREQgunfAL1nqA48ngWYt1jo4JXIYasHXZ7ScxfNlooijucG8UpODJfzCxYxQhfeM7PSJHVqYped5KMjBvY06X0Jt8Zg9vi6HNLju2vzKOTn_Hzv7NSuFVQI3_NKY8JFVBs-riPLVzH2MjmCVk8VlzUZqjkxDGk2XRocW47O7caQUhjEFB97fXdeCo18MropPnIBWuRqLogS-M4GNJ2nmauj7BgK_bcaF5S2SbHf700cmwa2QsdLJaOmYsDFOygV2_yS90ANv0hUrEb2mTF_pDSZqVD_8tspVd28_x7ArwnzUdKjNozcbGK9ZqV-MBswknt1KArnuIYu_PvkyjVQ_x1PGU7hymUvLYSTeG4qYehUqTGQcBBqRdl4dvVa8Dy5Mw0MbTXO7PGF2iT15nhNcKJj0Z98yCyoLkC856Sza_XSosqB12QSze_xU8rg=w136-h141-no

Can someone let me know if they see this? This is not how he will look in the final product, as I want to add some light effects and also clean up the colours where they go over a bit.

@SgtPeppersBulldog Indeed it does! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Reminds me very much of the Beatles cartoon. It would also make a great avatar (hint, hint a-hard-days-night-george-10). I can't wait to see more!

Great! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10Looks like this will be the way I can continue to share my artwork. I only hope everything else I will link doesn't come out as small as that did. ahdn_george_01

EDIT: Turns out I can still access my tablet's photo gallery from here to change my avatar, but I'm keeping my current one a bit longer.

Not much of a comic strip as a full page spread, but I've finally finished it!

And now - What if The Beach Boys had their own animated series in the style of The Beatles one?

piZap_1534630373822.jpgImage Enlarger

I've based their outfits around what they were wearing for their performance/skit of California Girls on The Jack Benny Hour:

I should also mention that there was some consideration for an actual Beach Boys cartoon between the 60s and 80s but nothing came of it.ahdn_george_05
