Probably a dating sim

Actually my answer is similar to MST3K's, above. I've always imagined the game of my comic looking like the Scott Pilgrim game.

The bad guys to beat up would be zombies, vampires, werewolves, and of course ghosts. The "story" (the plot would be about as tenuous as that of Bad Dudes) would be slightly different depending on whether you play as Seth, Jon, or Anna, like the enemies would be different, characters you have to save would be different, and items would be different (Seth regains health with coffee, Anna with alcohol, etc.).

They'd have individual idle animations too (because I love idle animations), like Jon would pull out a book, Anna would huff impatiently, Seth would play with his phone.

I didn't think I'd thought about this that much, but apparently I have XD

JammyTheBirb:

Aww, I forgot how baby-faced Nate was! <3 Though I like him as he is now too :)

First thing that springs to mind with my characters is Anna's eye shape changed, and unlike virtually every other character whose eye shape changed, hers wasn't on purpose, at least not at first. She used to just have circle eyes, then they gradually became ovals. By the time I noticed it I just ran with it and made it more exaggerated, as in the image on the far right:

Anything to beat sameface.

Then there are characters who don't show up that much and I just misremembered how I first drew them so I end up with characters like Ken who

Man, has your... face been working out? This is also a change I'm not keen on changing back, since I think this look suits his character better, but it wasn't intentional.

10- What is your favorite pastime? (e.g. reading, exercising, watching tv)

[spoiler]Seth: Gaming!
Anna: Surprising everyone.
Seth: I'm a simple guy.

Jon: Photography.
Seth: Ehhhh...
Jon: What?
Seth: You never do any though.
Jon: I use my camera all the time!
Seth: When d'you last buy film?
Jon: ...
Seth: Yep.

Anna: Haaaanging out?
Jon: Drinking?
Anna: That makes me sound bad.
Seth: It's drinking though, right?
Anna: ...Yes. But with people! Not alone!
Seth: And that makes it okay![/spoiler]

9- If you had one wish, what would it be (besides wishing for more wishes)?

[spoiler]Seth: Gonna assume this uses the Aladdin rules, so no wishing dead people back to life. I guess then I'd wish for super-strong teeth so I can have as much sugar as I want without needing more fillings. :,D

Jon: At this point only a magic wish could make me able to date someone, so I suppose I would wish for that.
Seth: Aladdin rules, bro.
Jon: I'm not wishing for her to fall in love with me, just one date!
Seth: You're wasting your wish on that? There's online dating, you know.
Jon: Don't tell me how to live my life.

Anna: I don't trust magic wishes, I read The Monkey's Paw, I'm abstaining, thanks.
Seth: You too? Why do you both hate nice things??
Anna: I don't want to wish for my stage fright to be cured only to accidentally kill you or something.
Seth: I mean that's sweet and everything, but still![/spoiler]

The problem with starting off with coffee is it's hard to find good coffee without making investments or stumbling across a really, really good café (which is frankly very unlikely). Because my advice is to buy very good ground coffee (try a roast that's about 3, which has a milder flavour than 4/5), and make it with a filter (tends to make it taste less strong and coarse than French press). Coffee tastes bitter if you use bad coffee or instant coffee (instant coffee is bad coffee) and it tastes burned if it's made by an unskilled barista.

But buying a bag of good quality coffee and a coffee filter is a lot of money for something you might just not like the taste of. It's just a lot of people think they don't like coffee because all they've had is instant or Nescafe or something. Make a friend who knows about coffee and they can make you a good coffee you might actually like. It shouldn't need sugar unless you just really like it to taste sweet. Or scour your neighborhood for an independent place--they're more likely to train people to make coffee well because they care about coffee. I'm not convinced Starbucks or Costa care about coffee.

In a nutshell:
Good beans
No instant
Try filter coffee
Support local businesses

Awesome idea for a theme! (Getting ideas already!) I'd like to enter with Waste Of Time. It has the L! and S! flags, and I'm fine with all flags.

The last few exchanges I've done were Ghost World, Stolen Memories, and Criptida.

8- What annoys you about being ill the most?
[spoiler]Seth: I hate looking ill. I look like I haven't showered even when I have. Looking gross sucks.

Jon: Feeling ill is its own punishment. Honestly, not having to work, go outside, or get dressed is a perk, I just hate feeling awful.

Anna: Knowing that my body has failed me. I work hard to maintain this meat suit I inhabit, so for it to catch something is a betrayal.[/spoiler]

Congratulations on three years! And I didn't realise this storyline was already 50+ pages, it's been whizzing by.

Do you need contributions before 1st September? I'd love to make something, but I'm going on holiday soon so I won't be able to work on anything until after the 1st.

It is a bad system. I checked my PMs and their username appears to be Comic-Rocket but I messaged them a year ago (exactly one year ago today, in fact! Weird coincidence!) and haven't heard anything so. There's that.

I'm not sure if you need an account on Comic-Rocket to claim your comic. I thought I had an account, but apparently not, but then if you can't claim without an account, why would it let me?? As you said, bad system. :(

Sometimes zero, sometimes ten, often somewhere in the middle. It depends when I can fit it in.

I've been thinking about redoing the lettering on some of my older pages to make going through my archives a bit... easier on the eyes. But redoing comic pages is a form of editing black hole I am all too familiar with, so I'm keeping away from that. I like to see my art progression also.

I did make a couple of tiny edits in the dialogue in older pages, like when I got some times and dates wrong, and I edited out a certain word I was no longer happy seeing in my comic. That's about the extent to which I redo pages.

Heyyy you know I'm going to throw my booze hounds into the ring. Any one of these three jerks would be right at home in a pub:
[spoiler]
Seth
Image: http://i.imgur.com/CHc7yd8.png
Image: http://i.imgur.com/qZ06Zfz.png

(Up to you whether you draw Seth sunburned or not--the option is there!)
Age: 22
Drink of choice: Beer or cider. If he's around bad influences *cough*Anna*cough* he may switch to tequila shots.
Note: He's kind of a lightweight.


Jon
Image: http://i.imgur.com/WwowU0M.png
Image: http://i.imgur.com/vk6qjRT.png

(As above, tan or no tan, your choice)
Age: 18
Drink of choice: Beer. He likes wine too, but he's not likely to order that in a pub... Might drink shots if A) he's already very drunk, and B) everyone else is doing it.


Anna
Image: http://i.imgur.com/assuchn.png

Age: 19
Drink of choice: If it's early in the night: pint of whatever beer on tap everyone is drinking, if it's late in the night: Jagerbombs or tequila shots,
or really any kind of shot[/spoiler]

Definitely not serious at all. Writing is my first love, and that's what I want to make into a job. My comic is partly to give my creativity a different outlet because I'd go insane if all I did in my spare time was write, and partly an excuse to draw, a hobby I've loved since I was a tween. It also lets me write whatever self-indulgent, gooey, cutesy, or just plain weird and/or stupid nonsense and not worry about it being "publishable". :D

7- would you say you're happy right now?
[spoiler]Seth: Yeah!
...
Yeah...

Jon: AAAAAAAAGGGGHHHHHH.

Anna: Eh, sure. I've been worse.[/spoiler]

I want to apply for this job that I think would be interesting and fulfilling and it pays very well and I think I'd be really good at it, but applications don't open again until March.

Related, I want to move into my own flat (nothing against who I live with now, I just want my own space and to feel like a Grown Up™) but I can't afford it unless I eat all the books I own instead of buying food.

Also Pokemon Ultra Sun. But it's not November yet.

So I came across the singer Asami Zdrenka and she might just be Gemma
[spoiler]

*resits urge to give Gemma tattoos now*[/spoiler]

I also have a folder of "body references" for my characters for when I'm struggling to get their proportions right and I need a human-shaped being to reference, and this model I picked for Seth doesn't look extremely unlike him:

...if you squint very hard.[/spoiler]

Everyone else I have a big cartoon question mark over my head about. I'm hoping one day I'll see a photo of someone somewhere and freak out because I've FINALLY FOUND THEM but no luck so far.

These were fun! And I'm not gonna lie, this will be excellent for trying to combat my sameface tendencies.

You know those random pointless segments of season 1 of Friends where they were just pissing around and being weird, before US TV episodes lost 1 minute of airtime to ads (or something) and they had to cut stuff like that? Yeah, 90% of my comic is that. It's intentional, I promise.[/spoiler]
