Mostly I've learned from dating that I have no patience for playing games. If you're out to meet someone long-term, why even pretend to be someone you're not, it's not gonna work. There are other types of dating of course but I stand by the above regardless. Just be open and honest about what you're looking for. If the other party feels the same you'll probably get on with whatever it is you're lookin for.

Luckily, I didn't have to go on too many dates or look around too much before I met my wife who had even less patience for playing games. For which I'm very grateful! ^_^

Lord_Wunderfrog:My Latest Page


I find it dryly hilarious that this multi-eyed squid creature has the gall to call anyone else by names. XD I'm especially fond of your designs here. They seem very believable, even at a first glance!

I wouldn't be making comics today if not for this man and what he brought to the industry. His characters has brought me so much joy throughout life. I am genuinely sad that he's gone but happy that he got to live such a long life and see so much of his legacy as it continued to take over the world.

RIP Stan Lee, you will be missed like few others.

I'm maybe not great at all the terminology and often think about it in terms (for comics) as Overall Story --> split into story arcs/chapters --> Split into parts/issues. So when you say episodes, I'm not 100% sure what you mean but take it you're referring to what I call arcs/chapters as in a self-contained story within the overall story/World.

I agree with SnuffySam in that I think it's important for arcs to be able to stand on their own. Story structure is very important to a well told narrative. Honestly, I think tv shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer has a good model for this where they split it up similarly. Each episode is a self-contained story with a beginning and an end. They're also part of a season that usually features a "seasonal villain" or threat if you will. The whole thing is part of her story though that spans the entire series.

What I like so much about this model is that it lets you play around a bit with the narrative. One episode can focus on a specific plot, mystery and/or conflict. But during these episodes have all or some of the characters interact and threads from the season are interwoven into the standalone arc and drive that forward at the same time. Whedon has described that he wanted each season to have a natural ending Point where the show could have ended. The only exception being season 6. This is in my opinion a smart way of telling stories like the one I imagine you're shooting for.

Obligatory example of own work:

The above is exactly how I've structured my comic Voidchild. There's a "season" that has a natural ending Point which should provide a satisfactory ending to the series if need be. It's split into separate arcs/chapters that tell their own contained stories. These are split into parts or "issues" which are 22 pages each. I think of the issues as that part in a tv show where it goes to Commercials and there's a bit of a cliffhanger to keep you coming back (if I've done it right).

I've personally found that setting a framework or restrictions for myself has helped (read "forced") me to think more about the contents of my series. I won't go outside the 22 page issue format for this reason because I know I could and would probably spiral away and fill it with unncessesary fluff. It forces me to be more concise and get to the point (again, when I get it right).

Back to your question:

I haven't read your comic, so I can't say if you should try a different model beause maybe the one you have works for you. The above one that I describd and use myself is my preference for the reasons I've outlined. It's also the ones I prefer to read/watch myself for what that's worth. =)

That’s understandable (coming from the guy who’s got problems doing it in the first place). I’d rather not impose it (hence the service suggestion) but I’ll consider opening a thread in the first place to see what I can get from that. I gotta figure out more layout specifics before I do that though. Thanks though and I’ll /end the tangent with that. :)

EDIT:

@Text - Thanks, I’ll look into that as well. Didn’t know you could use that forum for things like that. :)

Comic fury has been good to me, I’m gonna support as soon as I can figure out how to get the patreon stuff working.

I’ve thought about this before, but don’t know how doable it is for you guys because obviously running a site like CF is enough work. But CF has some powerful tools for customising your comic site. But I don’t have the knowledge of html and css that seems necessary to make anything more than the most standard stuff. I work full-time+ and have limited time to learn enough not to break the site (which is what happened last time I tried). I barely have time to work on the comic itself sometimes.

If you had a tier or service or whatever where a guy like me, who’s got funds but not time, could get more direct help with how to set up my own comic mirror how I want it I’d def be willing to consider that. But like I said, I don’t know how doable that is. Time and resources is not just a struggle for me I realise.

I’m gonna support you guys either way. Didn’t mean to go too off-topic but the above at least slightly relates to the OP. ^_^

Replying to MK_Wizards latest post/page:

I especially like the backgrounds and selection of colors for this page. Really draws the eye. Looks to be a spooky intro. =D

ThePineapple:How many of you are totally going to main Piranha Plant?


Oh I might not main, but that is probably one of the best new characters I’ve seen outside of me finally getting Ridley in the game! XD

I also looooved what I saw of World of Light. I would’ve been down for a sub space emissary level adventure mode but i’ll def settle for this that seems like a mix between that and the melee adventure mode. Though I didn’t see much side scrolling, so I’m kinda assuming that’s not gonna be a thing in this mode. Love me some non-character boss battles though and any smash related cutscenes is good with me. When those vocals kicked in and Kirby crash landed I was giddy all over! :D

Of all the new characters shown so far I’m especially pleased about Ridley, the Belmont’s (whom I voted for in the old character polls) and Piranha Plant. Still gonna stick close to my ZSS, Lil’ Mac and Mega Man mains. But they all look interesting in different ways.

Very sad not to see anything about a stage builder this time around. Unless I’ve missed something it doesn’t se like that’ll be in the game. That provided so much longevity for both Brawl and Wii U for me and my friends.

Still, even with that I can’t wait for release day! For my pre-order all ready!

snuffysam: (I was ok as Villager, and she just seems like Villager but even better at ruining your life).

Lol, villager was my troll character when sunny with friends. Never could get anywhere with him online but for sofa tournaments he was incredibly fun and tricky. That’s what I’m hoping for with Piranha Plant.

FlapjackStudios:To the attic!


RANKLESS - 35


Aw gawd, I hate seeing people on stools/chairs like that. Whenever I see a scene like this in a movie this is the exact scenario that enters my mind. Nice flow of actions in the bottom panels and thanks for evoking this worrisome feeling in my gut! XD It's agreat page and I've commented on your stuff before, I really like the cartoonish style you're working with. =)

I won’t lie, I asked you to review my comic because I wanted an honest opinion and you seem to have been very direct and told people what they need to hear. As such I was slightly nervous as to what the result of the review would be. I’m actually a little surprised, but very happy, that you found my comic so positive. Not because I myself think it’s bad, but you know... we’re always our own harshest critics maybe.

This was a real confidence booster though! And since your other reviews have been so honest I feel like I can def rely on this opinion. I’ll continue to try and improve the comic, art and story-wise, either way because that’s what I want. But reading this also kinda confirms to me that I’m doing something right.

I’m def taking onboard your advice again, miscellaneous or not. Re-drawing the pages is gonna be difficult if I want to bring everything up to the current level. Hell, I’m still learning so much about art alone. And there’s still plenty of Voidchild to go so I’m eager to get it out there.

Thanks so much for taking on my request! I’ll keep following the thread just because I enjoy your take on things and maybe I’ll get some good new comic tips myself. :)

EDIT: oh and I love the little grumpy Chibi-Mary. XD

Commenting on Mk_Wizards latest page:

I really like the interplay and dialogue here between Jekyll and Hyde. It really does feel like they're wrapping up the loose ends, in a very natural way. Must be exciting to near the end of your comic (and horrifying maybe? O_O).

Introductions begin and Mary learns about dating maybe? In today's update of Voidchild!
