blAugust may be over, but Connell reminds us all that sticking by our goals is important! I suppose I’ll have to get some stuff up for this week, too.
As a guy who made a webcomic for over 5 years, I managed to make all the usual mistakes, some of them several times over. Hopefully the 5th comic won’t be late. And actually be funny
Thanks Connell! It’s been great having you along for the blAugust ride, and I’m keen to continue having your stuff continue into blogtember! Hm, I feel like going out and reading some Scott McCloud now though…
Connell got this one to me early, but you guys get it the same time as usual. Also, he hints that there might be a second bonus update from him this week…
I was somewhat hesitant to make this comic with myself and Helena as the characters (again), but it is always easier to use characters I am familiar with!
I originally planned a comic which would have shared the first two panels, but then the guy has himself frozen for fifty years so he can write “Twilight with Predators”, with the warrior aliens from the Predators films hunting down sparkly vampires. But when I explained the concept to someone, the response was “….OK”, so I thought maybe with snappier writing and a different punchline the setup could still work. Also, I like the comic instead ending with the rejection, and that could be an interesting running gag to go with, where my character is seen having one idea or another knocked back for being silly or offensive. Or both!
Also, I know not all english translations of the Bible are public domain. Pretend it is the King James Version, or something.
The ditched first-attempt page. I’d gotten too far into the art without thinking about the script and the pacing, but eventually tore myself away from it to start over. I liked the angle of the second panel but it couldn’t fit the dialogue I wanted.
Today’s post was also going to have art from my class last night but I forgot to take photos. Have some photos of my lunch instead.
Aaaand here’s some content from our special guest poster, Dr. Connell Wood. He’s promised a value-adding one art per week (on top of my three posts per week).
I love dialogue-less comics. Thanks Connell!
