I'm having a slight issue here: I wanted to make a comic for a long time.
Having rediscovered Zantarni and its current state, I thought to make the comic about, among things, Zantarni.
Well, the main plot is about me becoming a better artist.
The secondary plot, the plot WITHIN THE PLOT, is Zantarni.
The idea is that I spread the word, and Zantarni becomes more lively again.
There is, of course, a problem...
I thought "eh, we'll burn that bridge when we get there" about the *ahem* "quests" my characters will go through.
Yes, you are allowed, no, WELCOME, to call me stupid about that one.

So, here I stand, hoping some living soul passed by and whispers me some ideas.
I have a few, but those are gonna run dry real fast.

PLEASE HELP!!!

Edit 1: I apologize in advance to the mods and admins who will, at times, might be displayed in negative light. As it stands now, you are all severely depressed about the situation, which manifests in unhealthy ways.

Edit 2: somebody post in here on occasion, please. I don't want to break the three posts in a row law.

Concepts so far:
Updates (counter: 2)

Update 1: Attempting to draw Adam on paper is harder than it looks. I think I got his hands wrong too.
Adam v1.0.0
Attempting to post it as a [img] resulted in HORROR BEYOND YOUR COMPREHENSION!
Apparently, the Zantarni doesn't do preview pics and put a full(ish) 4k image. Thank $@#5 I thought this might happen and did a preview first.

if you observe carefully, you'll see that I absolutely suck at drawing women.
edit1: what the hell. if i post this as an [img] it works. if i don't, it doesn't exist.
edit2: try to copypaste the link?
edit3
OK, I kinda found a way to share it, but had to change it to [img]. I'm not sure about the size, but I believe it's acceptable.
edit4: ok, it's either this, a tiny thumbnail you can't see anything on, vehemently demand people copypaste the link, or a full on 4k image, which we all can agree will break zantarni. I've already sent an email to support about this, so for now we just wait.

That sounds like a fun idea!

Writing and drawing comics is hard work. but very fun.

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Smile

Looks like it'll take way more than I thought!

I don't think y'all understood the assignment as presented...

Give me ideas for the plot.
Random ideas.
"Bossu goes to the pastry shop, finds out they're out of his favorite croissants that day, loses his mind, beats the sales guy unconscious."
(Finally found a ridiculous enough example that would not be a spoiler lol.)

You can even just go "Bossu goes to the pastry shop", and I'll take it from there.

Ideas about your character, ideas about other people, just...
IDEAS!

But yeah, throw me some ideas. Might use some, might not. Who knows?

edit1: I don't guarantee I'll depict your characters as they are, though. For example, Bossu? I can't draw barefoot slippers, so I'll put shoes on you. Laughing

Someone goes to the pastry shop and finds a sentient danish.

~Well have shoes now so should be better.

Oh nice idea. Maybe they go to the shop because someone asked them to pick something up for them.~

Update on the comic plan: there's good news and there's some bad ones.

Let's start with the bad news to get it over with: the plan sort of crashed.

The good news: the original plan was to just photograph a4 pages, crop them a little, upload them to imgur, and from imgur use the {img} (you know, except with square {}) to bring them here.
That plan crashed.

I already have a tablet, but it's the kind where you draw on the tablet, but stare at the screen.
It's quite hard to use, there's lack of synchrony.
This one? You draw on the tablet!

I got some money and bought an absolute beast of a tablet!
I'm waiting for delivery, but the main thing this tablet (or rather, its software) has?
It allows me to decide which resolution I want.
"Well, that's fine and dandy, bu--"
I'm not done.
One of it's presets? A4!
I can legitimately draw on printer paper, no cropping necessary!
Also, it makes other things easier.

So, sure, I'm switching to digital format, there's the feeling of lack of authenticity, but with this thing I...
    * Can upload my process to YouTube to document my authenticity.

    * Don't need to worry about pages not matching in size.

    * Possibly publish it as an actual comic! Like, a physical thing!


Your ideas HAVE been heard, btw, and WILL be used at one point or another.

~Glad you could get a tablet that seems to fit at least. Unfortunately the Eve pic won't load, could be me. Well maybe some figure drawings could help. I do feel you with hands but I have that problem with feet. Good luck though.~
