Pinned toot

HOOKAY big thread time:
It's been one week since I announced , and in that week, I've pretty much come to terms with what I've started. With that, I can finally post everything (I think) that I've officially come up with.
In addition to the submission guidelines below, I have a few things that I forgot to mention:

When you submit, don't forget to submit an About The Author blurb about yourself!

If I make more issues, they'll come out quarterly (every three months)...

Hi there everyone. Second time writing an intro, so let's go.

I'm David, a comics writer/artist who can also be found @David_A_Webcomic. I've been drawing comics for quite a while, and I've been posting them recently on Socel. However, Socel isn't exactly as *active* as I it to be, so I've decided to come over here and post on both accounts. Hopefully this'll work out favorably.
You think I’m kidding, but I’m not.
It’s also on Spotify for those who dare listen. I mean ‘it’s the season, almost.

Just a reminder that back in the height of Pokémania (2001 to be exact) that 4Kids released a *freaking Christmas album* featuring the the show’s then-current dub cast (e.g. Veronica Taylor as Ash, the like), featuring such hits as “I’m Getting Santa A Pikachu For Christmas”. I’ve only heard the brief clips that iTunes plays of the songs (yes, this cursed piece of Pokémon history is on iTunes) and it’s its own special kind of terrible.

I honestly wonder what some of my design choices come off as to others

Like literally my characters are a circle, and oval, four sticks, and a crap ton of cheated angles, the little outside art I have either interpret the black sticks as sleeves on a black undershirt, the cheated hair angles for my male characters as bowl cuts, the simplistic character designs as chibis, or some combination of the three

mh (~) 

honestly it feels bizarre watching The Simpsons on Disney+

Hey, so I've been seeing some people trying to get some Fediverse Secret Santa type things going on, and it's inspired me to think of one of my own: a Fediverse-wide OCret Santa! Basically, we get a whole bunch of people to send in their OC refs, and then we randomly distribute them out for the other creators to draw! Like Art Fight but without the stress!
Let me know if you're interested or know of somebody doing something similar, don't want to encroach on their territory!

All right I've asked this like a million times so it's about time that I put this to a vote, since it's only fair that I let the MastoMob choose the project.

Where should I serialize Battle Front?

Hey quick question for my fellow webcomic artists with more experience doing serialized strips rather than gag-a-week, like, how do you guys format your weekly releases? Like a page or two a week or like upwards of three pages weekly?

Additional fun fact, Maya was just kind of a name that I came up with as a female companion, and then I remembered that part of Autodesk’s 3D rendering suite is literally named Maya.
The name stuck and nobody would get the joke unless they knew the genesis of the project.

So, uh, a fun fact about Battle Front (that new #webcomic I’m working on), the entire series was created when I was learning Blender over the summer about four years ago (suffice it to say that I’ve pretty much forgotten everything since then). I was learning about the molding tools, and then all of a sudden, I had two rather large prongs coming out of a sphere.

And my first thought was, “this is a weird-ass helmet”.

And thus, Kyzio was born.

fun fact: I've been working on these characters for around four years

*Four years*

All right, you guys wanted it, despite only knowing the *genre* of the comic, here it is, the main cast of my new ("new") #webcomic, Battle Front.
I honestly don't know when to expect this thing by, but trust me, it'll be good. I think. I hope.

Basically imagine Firefly meets Deep Space 9.

With like a heap of absurdist nonsense carelessly chucked in the mix.

I have like 60 pages worth of rough page sketches, but I also try to stretch my art in directions that in retrospect, I'm not really proud of, so I'd have to completely re-draw the entire thing, not to mention doctor the script a bit, so it too will take a lot of time before I think it's viewer-worthy.

But I'm leaving the decision up to the Masto Mob right now, so anything goes!

I have a story down for it, though, basically, a fantasy pocket dimension opens up in Davidsville and when the characters go through it, they turn into their D&D selves. The pocket dimension also somehow threatens to destabilize the strip's home dimension, though, so it's up to David and company to close it.

The second comic is a serialized space opera/western action comedy-drama that I actually started a few years ago. [2/?]

Hey so we're kinda deadlocked right now between the RPG Maker game and the second comic, so I've decided to enumerate on what I mean by each:

The RPG Maker game is gonna be directly based off of my comic strip. It'll take an assload of time, particularly because I want to hand-draw the custom sprites (How hard could it be? - David's last words) and I don't really know that much about RPG Maker aside from the fact that I have it. [1/?]

I've been looking over my strip archive, and I just realized that I've never had anybody refer to Sarah by name until last week's strip.


Ok now that I've finished Tales From The Fediverse and I have like three months before the next issue's recruitment I'm gonna start on another side project

So like what should it be?
