Artist(s) needed for webcomic
« on: February 10, 2009, 02:08:00 pm »
Subject says it all. I'm making a webcomic, and would like some help for those interested in being part. Seriously, even my stick figures look like crap. I'm not looking for 0mguberl33t sexy manga skill, but it would be nifty. And almost anything is better than what i would draw myself. Post some examples here, or email me at [email protected]

The webcomic is about PnP (pen and paper) RPG playing friends and the ups and downs of everyday geek life. Love, school, sex, gaming in all its forms, computers, university, IRC, et cetera.

The name of the webcomic is Epic Fail, but its up for debate.

The characters are (with more as needed/wanted):

Patrick McGinty - A 21 year old unemployed hacker with ambitious goals of world domination, but fails to follow through due to laziness and lack of support. Has his fair share of megalomania, and then some.
Unkempt black hair falling to his shoulders, usually tied back. 5'8, not chubby but not skinny either. Wears street clothes with a slight grunge look and a black My Chemical Romance wristband, or one with geeky phrases ( roses are 0xFF0000, violets are 0x0000FF, for example) and on occasion, a black fedora.

Aeris Lacuna - Patrick's girlfriend. 18 years old and barely reaching the 5'0" mark. Her goal in life is to open up her own comic book shop.
Cute, petite, short black hair just below her ears. Wears jeans and tshirts with cute things on them.

Edward Retfirg - Patrick's best friend and culinary genius. In his senior year of high school and manager of a pastry shop.
Tall, lanky, with lots of freckles on his face. Medium length red hair falls over his face and parted in the middle. Wears casual but nice looking clothes without designs.

Dominic Cross - One of Patrick's friends, and psychotic to boot. Works at a factory and spends his paychecks on anime and rulebooks.
Messy short brown hair. Stands about 5'10 and large. Wears baseball style caps with beer brands, bands, and anime characters on it, jeans and tshirts with anime designs.

mhmm interesting, I would like to see how this turns out. Had I got decent drawing skills I would probably be able to help but unfortunately I haven't :(. I made some comics in the past but the quality of drawing was questionable compared to a lot of stuff I seen online (altough at one point I still plan to upload them) but it was about 8 years ago. I have been more into pixel art and even then I have to use character generator softwares to make RPG characters x.x

I think this would be a quite funny story though. If this works out make sure to have a rickroll reference somewhere at one point in the comic :)

Yeah that sounds pretty cool. Seems similar to http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/ Looking forward to what you come up with. I am by no means a good artist, so I won't be able to help you out with that.

Yeah, I love CAD. It was my first foray into webcomics. Shortly after came 8 Bit Theatre, VG Cats, XKCD, LFG, and Chugworth Academy.

yeah I like all of those (xcept I haven't heard of LFG...) I'd have to say XKCD is my favorite though. Never knew stick figures could be so funny

Oh, one thing, make sure to make it non-english speaking readers friendly if there are gonna be a lot of jokes, though, especially if there are a lot of jokes not internet/videogame related, because this is one thing that turned me away from XKCD

Very good. :p

We can expect a great site. But I don't think I know enough for making those jokes. Understanding most of them is too much...

Ooh yeah he was amazing at drawing, both on calc and on paper. Of course there would always be Necro, but that would make it a quite gory comic x.x

I'd be up for it, but I really don't have the time for a project like this these days.  Good luck :D.

I was thinking about updating once or twice a week to allow for busy schedules. Also, thees no way in hell i can write a new comic more often than that.

well, if you get it going, it could be more of a collaborative comic using whoever is available on omnimaga. we can sort of take turns, submit new ideas, or even draw, perhaps.
