Yeah, I get what you mean, I used the word because when looking at works, I sometimes get the impression variety in female designs is limited by a desire to keep them all looking pretty, so in my mind the two things are related. Even massive companies have this going on.

Sorry, I don't mean to come at anyone XD Honestly there's nothing wrong with wanting to draw nice looking characters, in this particular case it just sticks out because of the vastly different styles. At this point I think I'm just repeating what others have already said, haha.

I haven't had a long look, but I did reach a crowd scene, and came to the realisation all the male characters have interesting and varied designs, and all the female characters have the same, cutesy anime face. This is really weird to me. I actually think it'd be alright if you just did this with one character, but it definitely looks weird with it being a standard thing and I'd recommend a bit more variety and allowing a bit more 'ugliness' into the female designs.

It's 120% not copied. Neither set of characters look anything alike, beyond species, and any name similarities are just coincidence. I mean, I coincidentally named two of my own characters similar things without realising. There are only so many original ideas in the world, eventually some people are going to think up a human and cat space duo separately. Yeah, as pointed out, it's happened a lot.


It's also unlikely anyone would want or think to steal an idea like this from a webcomic; our work tends not to be well known outside our communities, and creative people usually prefer to work on their own stuff.

Yeah, I'm not just confident, I'm certain they didn't steal from you. And even if they did hypothetically see your stuff, decide to copy it and come up with this? It's different enough that it wouldn't even matter. I don't think anyone would ever notice, even if they were fans of both.

I think I would rather not be remembered. That said, being remembered for making something bad but being a pretty chill person is INFINITELY better than being remembered as an arsehole who made a thing of any quality. As you've said, there can still be some enjoyment for everyone in the former, even if it's bittersweet. The latter is just depressing.

For what it's worth, I think something like that sounds like a good idea. (I got the impression this was always supposed to be a CF fanart thread, but the occasional non CF fanart was overlooked and appreciated anyway because it wasn't a big deal. It's increased by a lot now, though.) There should definitely be room for both kinds of fanart, but I do think we need to encourage that sense of community and engagement between users. It's one of the most important things that set this place apart.

I do like the soft shading for the background. Because it's less... 'all in one place' than the cell shading, it adds a bit more contrast between the buildings and your character's skin, which are fairly similar colours. It is also a nice effect as you say.

Yeah I like the flats more too, to me the soft shading looks more like it's tinting everything blue than acting as shading.

Another thing to consider may be something derived from Pphnarg's twitter handle, Pphnarguments?

It is a weird noun though, so new readers may not get it.

Being brutally honest, I could see almost all these titles working, except Slay That Dragon! Which I'm not much of a fan of. Unfortunately to me it does sound a bit 'accidentally naff.'

In my opinion, the red's a bit... I don't know how to describe, it, 'edgy?' A bit much, maybe. I feel like the original may have been as popular as it was for using mainly neutral colours, and so suited most comics pretty well. The red borders keep drawing my eye. (I know it's called Midnight Murder, but it wasn't just people with that type of comic using it.)

But then, I suppose there's nothing stopping someone from changing the borders, it's not too tricky as things go. Other than that, I think it's a good update.

Alrighty, things have been slowing down, so it's time to officially announce submissions to my zine are closed! I'll be in contact with everyone who submitted something soon.

Thanks so much all, I've been blown away by all the responses.

@MK_Wizard-
Sure thing! I'll probably be posting a lot about it as well. I'm also thinking of making some kind of optional newsletter until this is all over for everyone who wants to be really up to date.

@Shuffle-
That's ok! There's a chance I'll do another colour zine in the future, and you'd be welcome to apply then!

I've never made a self insert character, as I don't think that'd be very interesting for anyone. Most of my characters have at least some things in common with me though, write what you know and all. I also don't have a sassy villain... Unless you count the game I'm working on. But Venus is more 'hammy Saturday morning anime villain' than sassy right now.

I read Audrea as au-DRAY-ah.

Nature! So for the purposes of this zine, that could mean forests, plants the sea, northern lights, green animals, etc etc.
