>How's your comic going anon?


>You have a comic right?

I have one that I currently work on. It's just a practice for other books, and it also serves as a petri dish for ideas and a place to get retarded humor, wacky stories, and fetishes out of my system.

Other than that I have five different book ideas, with settingx mostly fleshed out and stories being half-way planned.

>Who else is going to save comics?

(You), faggots.


Write it down, faggot. There is nothing more frustrating than knowing that you came up with something good and then forgetting it.

For well over two years, I've been coasting on a ton of ideas, but this the year I have decided to try to make some of them concrete. I've been focusing on two at the moment, a comic and a tv show.

The comic mixes noir and Tarantino-esqe elements with anime and cheesy comic book bullshit while the show idea involves three assholes wrecking havoc trying to get society to accept them.



I've got a half-baked idea about a Minecraft Survival comic with Lore and a story arc, and it was better than every other kid's on the block, because Thaumcraft was Canon in it.

Honestly, it's been years since I thought about that thing, way back at the beginning of High School. I'm cringing at the character archetypes I came up with. The Girl love interest was a badass with red hair! The entire thing was a pile of cliches blended with "jokes" based around Steve being a walking panic attack and normal Minecraft Shit happening to him, resulting in screaming, running, and physical comedy.


I don't have much, but a short Cuphead Noir comic titled Cuphead by Gaslight would be worth bank in recognition right now, and guarantee focus on whatever project you're currently working on. Even more so if it's actually good.

I got a bunch of art and writing books for the Volafile, if anyone's interested.




Kill yourself.



Sounds shit. Scrap them both.


I got a fucking idea I've been simmering for years, now.

Trouble is that work and life in general prevents me from practicing my art like I know I should. And I dunno if I can afford to get a decent artist onto it. I know a few, but I don't want to jerk them off with pitiful amounts of money for their time.

I've mentioned it before in another, similar thread. A scifi story about ship full of a battalion of supersoldiers given cyborg bodies that crashes into a city. Story takes place 70 years + after the crash and everyone's dealing with the societal changes and long-term effects, with the cyborgs who remain just wanting to live normal lives.

Of course it's not that simple, so fights, rioting, deformities, cyborg infighting and all sorts of other shit abound.



A webcomic at best, it is easier to publish.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

I've got an outline/design document for a JoJo fanPart, although I've been putting off picking up sketching for several months now.

Maybe I'll make that fanPart some day.


Well I wrote a novel, and I'm currently doing the revisions e editing. Since I'm unemployed for now, I hope to get it done by January.


I've been writing a script that is over 200 pages now, less than a 1/4 of the whole plot and been practicing drawfagging, but I'm in a STEM college that is burning all my time.



>How's your comic going anon?

It's not moving at an optimal pace. But I am working on it, at least to the best of my ability. Right now I ran out of paper! I can still just ink and do other things.

>You have a comic right?

What else would I be doing to escape hell world? Video game is for gay who can't draw. The comic is about a dead guy who can't get a break. He hasn't even been allowed to sleep in 8 years.

>Who else is going to save comics?

Comics can't be saved until people give up cape genre and make stories about other genre. I just draw gookcomics, which no one really reads. But I like it so i'm having fun right now.



To be fair, I was 14 at the time.

>Car Seat Headrest

At least post good indie like Pavement or The Stone Roses, you fucking pleb.



I-it ties into the fanPart.


File: 46b7539b13d6772⋯.webm (5.31 MB, 720x480, 3:2, Sly and the Gang Rob a KF….webm)

Oh yes, I've been slowly working on a universe/story concept for a little over two years now. Have the world mostly built, and I'm working on the first part of the story now. Unfortunately, college keeps kicking my ass up and down the street every day, working while trying to get an education makes pursuing creative outlets fucking impossible.

It's a fantasy set in a pseudo renaissance era with parallels to our own world and cultures. There are swordfights, flintlocks, magic spells and anthropomorphic characters galore.

Still not sure what I'm going to do with it when I'm done. Obviously, adapting it into a comic would yield more profits, since my writefagging isn't the best, and furries can't read, so there goes a huge portion of my guaranteed audience but I don't have the funds to procure an artist on commission and they'd have to be willing to put up with my desire for almost complete control over the property. As of right now, an internet release, like a light novel, is probably where I'm heading.

>all these idea guys

comics are doomed



It's going slowly. I just finished my finals for the semester so I'm gonna be working on the storyboards while I'm visiting family.

I have a couple ideas one idea I think is gonna be a good one to work on as I grow as an artist and a big comic I want to do once I'm a little bit better, but I've been thumbnailing both and doing concept art/ studying art as well. I don't know if it'll change comics but I hope it might make a dent in it at least.


I have many ideas.

All I know is that as soon as I finish this semester I'm gonna suck >>>/loomis/ cock until I get at least a level 3 mastery


File: 8cc0051c6099d53⋯.jpg (1.32 MB, 2480x3508, 620:877, 33333.jpg)

It ain't just ideas; writing is actually being done and art is being practiced.

Just, other life factors tend to take up much of my schedule.

For the story outlined in >>949071 I did get an artist pal of mine to give me his own particular take on my OC based off sketches provided.

So, here it is:

(I still need to catch baggyfag and get him to do some work, too)



Very very slowly since I’m constantly adding/removing ideas to my drafts. I’m also occasionally worried about how others may view it so there are times I’m filled with a lot of doubt. I haven’t really shared it with any of my real life friends or family because they aren’t interested, so I mostly keep it to myself. On the plus side I’m really enjoying drawing it by myself too despite the fact that it shows I lack anatomy and perspective.

I don’t think I’d be one the heroes to save your comics, but I’d at least like to finish the story before I die since I live in a kinda shitty area.


File: 000e95e84f1b5d3⋯.png (47.46 KB, 650x566, 325:283, Choose_Char.png)


Not exactly /co/ but I decided to JUST do it and run a quest thread over on /quests/. I'm finding it a good learning/practice experience to start getting into more narrative telling without having to wait forever agonizing and forever second guessing.

Not many people see it though and the art isn't amazing but that's fine by me right now. Part of the point is that I'm actually doing it instead of "eventually doing it".



Sometimes, I like to write it down ideas or dialogues in loose comic form, but it doesn't go further than that desire to communicate a small thought in a graphical medium.

One of these days I'll probably upgrade and make something with a real story. I know some drawfags friends who are actually making full-on comics with scarily thought-out stories and lore and settings and whatnot, it's really inspiring.


There should be a comic called Ultraman, about that Chad meme.


I used to make these really shitty MS Paint comics making fun of other shitty comics in LOL threads on /v/. I used a literal strawman and a dick head as my characters, they were called Sam and John. I've since long forgotten and lost the origina



lost the original 10 comics*

Fuck, I hate phoneposting. But yeah, no longer parodying other people's work. I'm instead working on an one frame per-second animation atm.

Still working on my President Kaiju comic with an artist. I can't really dive deep into it now since I've got another comic I'm pitching soon. Till we're working on it full time my artist likes to do some pieces of characters fighting or stuff exploring history in the story lore.



That's good to hear. Great idea like that deserves a comic. Art looks pretty good too.

>I can't really dive deep into it now since I've got another comic I'm pitching soon.

How are they going to be released? I am willing to buy it as long as Marvel and DC won't be involved in publishing.

I remember that thread, I'm really glad you are sticking with it.

President Kaiju I'm most likely gonna make a webcomic but I actually will have an ending planned for it. At most I'd take a year to build up as much content as I can (maybe 5 issues worth) and release issue by issue on a monthly basis. I honestly don't like weekly releases, I feel that works more if you're the artist and writer for your comic.

The other idea that I'm currently working on, I'm pitching it to a smaller publisher mostly because I'll still be retaining rights to the characters at least.


Hey thanks, anon.

Honestly the Kaiju market in comics is pretty bare. It's practically open game for anyone to jump in with something.




>There is nothing more frustrating than knowing that you came up with something good and then forgetting it.

ALWAYS WRITE STUFF DOWN. I can not emphasis this enough. I put down ideas/designs in my sketchbooks over the years that when I look back at them some of them, I realize they are mostly gone from my memory in the present day.

If you try to keep an idea in you head, time will make it eventually break down and "evaporate" piece by piece out of your memory in the future.

I feel like I have finally refined my current sketchbook layout, so here how I layout mine (from western style left to right book use)

>Front half first 5-6 pages, some tutorials info/some blank page for other notes

>After that drawings of things your seen online, practice drawings, figure studies, anatomy. Usual drawing stuff.

>Back of sketchbook, final page. Some motivation quotes, other generic info, reminders.

>Second to last page (and now working right to left) 5 page blank for WRITTEN IDEAS, no drawings. I use a mechanical pencil for this to write small (but always make sure to write neatly so you can read it in future)

>After that add in personal drawings, designs of your original ideas.

>Finally always DATE your work of your drawings, especially if your draw every day. It's nice to look back and see what you did on a moment in time. Heck even write down if something happened that day (attended a birthday, election results, completed a video game that took up your time, job interview or other job related stuff, movie you watched, etc)

>When you have filled the sketchbook enough to your liking to move on to a new one, write down its start date and end date and what number of sketchbook it is (is it your 3th book? 7th? 15th?) to "sign off" its completion before moving onto the the next sketchbook.

Additional notes

>I'm had times where I haven't even filled in all of the first 5-6 pages for tutorials in some sketchbooks. No ones perfect. That stuff does get boring (and might even bore/confuse someone you don't want trying to read it. I still think of this even though my sketchbook has never fallen into anyone's hands for some strange reason which I assume is a perfectly normal reaction).

>The reason for "learning in the left side and your original drawing stuff in the right side" sketchbook layout means that your ideas will be easy to find for future reference compared to them just being mixed together with the other less useful practice drawings, saving your future self time which I'm experienced.

>The above could also lower the risk of someone grabbing your sketchbook and being more distracted by other drawings (like nude figure drawings) before seeing you own original stuff at the back.

>Optional: When doing the date, write down the day of week. Gives a clear indication of what days of the week you draw most.

>I don't date my written ideas at the back, never really thought about why I don't do that. Probably saves that little bit of space/pencil lead.

I wanna redraw this shit I made with an office pen completely but using a marker instead.

Supposed to be a Shonen manga style action comic where the characters have tons of lore, but the main story is simple.

I'm basically remaking all the comics I drew as a kid and it's meant to be my final drawing project. Only scripted the prologue that sends the characters on their journey by now and I'd be happy if I'd at least get that one done.



I remember you posting these like a year ago it feels like. I think they're a pretty great start to something.



Make sure to post once you have something you'd want to present, I think alot here would like to see where you're going with this.


Dang this looks pretty clean and well put together. The styling is nice too even if simplistic. Guessing you planned it out pretty well.


Any way we could possibly see a thumbnail or two? I like seeing what people are working on, and maybe presenting it will help you in some way?


I've posted some sketches here before but currently the comic is at a standstill while I'm sorting life stuff out and because I want to redo the sketches that were already done into something that doesn't feel like shower thoughts.



I make them up on the spot, but then I messed up at one point due to my improvising and decided to plan ahead. Maybe too much.


Haha nice that someone saw it.

Should I even draw with thicker lines or just keep it up like this?!


Considering I can't draw, *or* seem to persuade someone to do it for me regardless of how much I'm willing to pay?

It's not, basically. None of them.

Short story book is out, though. Working on the second as we speak.


>How’s the comic going

Aight. Still storyboarding and a few shit concept drawings

>You do has comix, rite?

Getting there…

>who’s going to save comics

Probably some waifufag



Developing surprisingly fast. Was having a brainstorm session with an artist friend who's been trying to decide on a project to really make a grab for patreonbux, didn't expect anything to come of it but he's really running with an idea I threw out. We're still fleshing out basic character/setting/plot structure stuff but it's looking way more likely to actually turn into something than any of the other projects we've bullshitted about

it's gonna be weebshit though

at least try to avoid some of the worse tropes or pitfalls anon.

Indeed I have.



Every single day I make damn sure to work on mine, and there's just so much packed into it that I'm positively bursting at the seams to tell you about it.

And when I'm not actively working on it, I'm researching what I can in order to improve. Everything from catching up on the Manga I've wanted to (One Piece, MOB, Totsukuni no Shoujo, etc), and the comics I've neglected for so long (DC New Frontier, Don Rosa's The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck, eventually this one Moon Knight run, etc), digesting as much source material as I possibly can in order to continually deliver the best possible comic.

Every single detail, every single line, every single story point, I spend whatever hours I can find amidst this busy life combing over, in order to continue the fervor of this project, (much to the dismay of my friends who've wound up stuck as my editors.) There's a definite ending we're moving towards, and it's in one of the pages I've included, but how long it takes to get there and what it entails? Well that much we've gotta take our time for.

And yes I say "we" because anyone who reads this is a participant in "EGWT" as a whole. Because above all else, I put in all this work so that others are able to enjoy it as much as I do making it. Besides, I've got a few topics for videos in the works, anyway. So the more extraneous, background, details, will be delegated to that.

not very well



I beg to differ, friend, this looks interesting as fuck already.

Tell me, what is this character?



one of many main characters in the story ive got that ultimately get fucked over by a trickster god, ive got a long, elaborate lore going on, but in the end, i just wanna draw more



I remember seeing you post about this on /a/. I'm glad to hear it's still coming along.

it's going alright. challenging to come up with funny jokes every week. I'm happy just doing funny stuff, but people want red pills too.

getting a fan base is another challenge, it's been slow and steady

Powering thru the grind. I will get there..




Well then don't fret. You clearly already have a good work ethic, all you need to do is figure out what's holding you back, and you'll get this thing going on no time.

I hope you do, as well, the way you're combining more realistic art, with stylized symbolism, is really fucking cool.


Oh there's no need for concern of me finishing this, my entire life is structured around it. I'll only stop when I die.
