It's snowing. I'm happy because it's so white, calm and the sounds are different when there is soft snow everywhere.

colinmooredraws:By mentioning your comic, twice, before asking your questions you put that frame around them. No matter what. And again, all of the questions require a context in order to get anything out of them. Also, talking about your work in a setting with other creators is not "info dumping." And if that's what you think people here do...yikes.



If you're an "absolute amateur" you would greatly benefit from listening to people who aren't amateurs. This is why people keep pointing out that these "preferences" don't have the meaning you seem to think they do: They are speaking from experience. We are trying to respond to your "curiosity" in a constructive way by saying that no matter what the answers are, they won't give you anything solid. Nor will they "help other creators" as you said in a previous post. Other people's preferences have little bearing on the story someone creates. If they're creating it using answers found in this thread, they're not creating their own story.

So I will restate my answer to every single question in a different way: It depends on the execution, the story, and what information needs to be conveyed.


I got an ''yikes''? Ugh..

Eh.. I just don't want to read thee kind of comments in a thread made just for fun.. Please, I don't want this to be so serious..
This is very tiring for me. Sorry to bother you or something.

Merged Doublepost:

I really enjoyed reading these answers, it was very interesting to me and fun.
At the end though, I feel very exhausted and kinda flustered from all the concern and comments that left me really confused.

Thank you very much, again, for participating in this fun thread, but I don't have enough energy for this anymore. I've been anxiously thinking, if next post here will have fun answers or comments that will make me uneasy and at the end, the critique that I really don't want.
Sorry to bother the main site with my updated thread, these were.. interesting few days.

Yeah it may be the case.. Though, I don't handle these things well, I just don't know how to react and at the and I'm confused.
Don't worry, I'm not resigning or anything. ^^''

Yeah, I'm glad too. I will try to be more clear in the future.

Nah don't worry, I really enjoyed your answers! I'm more concerned about the people who commented just to tell me that I shouldn't made the post or something.

Idk if this is a minor annoyance, but I have real regrets about making a thread that was meant to be made for fun. I very enjoy reading the answers, but oh boy there are people who really suck out the fun out of my soul. It made me tired and stressed as hell. Really, people, I explained the matter a few times and there are still people who are so serious about the not-so-serious matter. At first it didn't bothered me, but now I'm really flustered. You don't need to tell me 5 times that WATCH OUT THESE ANSWERS WILL SCREW YOUR THINKING AND COMIC PLANS AND YOU SHOULDN'T THIS AND THAT'' Dude. It's not that serious. I won't change my plans at all.
I needed to vent out this frustration. I'm still flustered and frustrated, but kinda less. I think about closing the thread and not making new one ever.
Also, this is my first thread on the forums(not counting the ''hello'' one), and damn, for me, the first impresson is really bad.

colinmooredraws:You're not going to get the kind of response you're looking for this way. You would get a far clearer interest check if you posted something about the comic itself. A summary, or some sample art, etc. It's like trying to judge if someone will like the food you made by asking them if they like hamburgers or ice cream, then asking if they put mustard on their sandwiches. When you've already made soup.

You could hit every single one of someone's choices and they still may not like it. Meanwhile you hit zero of someone else's choices and they might love it.

One of Chernobog's answers could be applied to every single question: "This probably depends on the work." Without context most of the questions are difficult to answer. Like are we talking about an intense sci fi super hero story with noir undertones, or a slice of life period drama set in a video rental store in the early 90s?

I appreciate the concern, BUT..
I'm slowly getting tired of explaining to every single post like this one, that this thread is JUST FOR FUN. I'm not taking these answers as any guidance for my work. My questions solely exist to satiate my CURIOSITY, not the need to ''upgrade'' my comic. Also, they shouldn't be taken by anyone as an info-dump about my work.

Dear people, I'm simply a curious person, there is no big ''make everyone happy'' scheme..
I wrote that ''I want to check if at least one person would read my upcoming comic LOL'' as a joke, a form of sarcasm, I'm sarcastic as hell toward myself. It also implies that I'm not very sure if anyone will read a story made by an absolute amateur. It's simple as that.

Hope more people understand now..

-JoKeR-:Only 9 and 10 can be answered with yes or no.


Sorry, I meant you can answer in a very simple way!

-JoKeR-:
Warning:
Your curiosity will influence your perception you have about your own story/comic.
Even so you didn't plan to use the outcome of your questions.

You'll start to think twice if you should implement a certain plot-point as you had planned it or as the majority would like it. Doubt will raise and at the end you'll abandon your previous idea.


Eh, I am aware that the knowledge will influence my perspective, but saying that I'll abandon my project that I carefully planned for years is simply not true.. Thanks for another warning though.

Firefly Jelly:
If I can make an observation here- I fear you're approaching this backwards. Writing isn't having a laundry list of "things the story needs" or "things readers want" and then cramming them in there. Let the story develop organically and grow by itself and let its needs determine what choices you make.

A story designed to please a particular audience, or aimed vaguely at "everyone," is unlikely to connect. Let the story be itself and its audience will find it.


While I appreciate the answers, I want to point out again, that I have no intention to change the story of my comic based on this thread. I am simply curious what others think and want to cure my boredom.. ^^''

mitchellbravo:Are you asking because you plan to modify your story based on responses? If you have a story you want to tell, I feel like it would be disheartening if the majority of responses you see pick the option that doesn't represent what you have planned.


Not really, I have already planned majority of my story, it's something I thought for about few years now. I'm just curious what people consider more enjoyable and why. I wouldn't change these things in my comic because it will twist a story in a different way, a way I don't like. It probably will make me kind-of sad if majority will pick things that does not represent these in my comic, but I really want to know and really this sadness doesn't matter ^^

celin:More over none of those questions inquire about things like artstyle or genre ... so you can check all the "preferables" from your inquiry yet still miss the mark.


Yeah, true.. Though, these questions are created from my curiosity rather than some need to change things, don't worry :D

I understand the concern of you people, though. Especially the vocal minority/silent majority stuff and such. It already tells me much!

I thought it will be more fun to make this thread instead of some poll (And I have no idea how to make the poll with 10 ''this or that'' questions :D) + these opinions may help other creators ^^''

Maybe I should edit the main post to clarify that I have a plan for my story lmao

(Disclaimer: Sorry for my grammar, I'm not perfect at english ;_; )

Hewwo~
Soo I'd like to test the grounds on this site and ask some questions (about 10) about your comic preferences. (Yeah I want to check if at least one person would read my upcoming comic too, lol) Edit: Yeah don't read the crossed stuff, this thread is JUST FOR FUN, please don't remind me that something something will change my view, or my plans for my work or something else, it tires me more than the things you warn me about. I'm an anxious person, and for a few days comments like these just sit in my head so much, that I start to have regrets about making this thread in the first place. So please, respect my decision and if you are not going to answer these simple questions, don't tell me again about the harm of these opinions. It's unnecessary and not fun.

Edit: >>I HAVE ALREADY PLANNED MAJORITY OF MY STORY, IT'S SOMETHING I THOUGHT ABOUT FOR A FEW YEARS NOW.<<

If you can, tell me why you prefer something or not..(You can just type yes/no too..):

1. Are you okay with lenghty and at times slow-paced series, or you prefer something more like a one-shot story with some action?

2. Do you like monochrome comics (or b&w and ocasional colors) or the colorful stuff is your jam?

3. Are you interested in comic with more silent pages (without text/dialogue) that contains some landscapes and background stuff, or with heavy dialogue? (Or maybe both/more balanced?)

4. Heavily negative and agressive atmosphere or lighthearted and calm?

5. Do you need a point of reference in the story? (For expample - something you can relate to or instantly understand)

6. (You can skip this one if you answered no.5 with ''yes'') If the story is completely about some otherwordly beings that don't function like something you know, or their minds work differently, do you need additional disclaimers, or notes under the pages when something weird happens? (Example: an unknown custom)

7. Very obvoius foreshadowing or the hidden one, or none at all?

8. Philosophical/religious tropes and heavy symbolism (that may imply to a reader what will happen in the future of the story) is ok, or too boring?

9. Do you need a true villain/protagonist in the story?

10. Do you need to have all your questions answered at some point in the story?


I will really appreciate your answers and I'm very, very curious about what you think!
