Webcomic Stuff!

Okay, so I think I mentioned that I was taking a course in Online comics, and, of course, I have to create a web comic for the class. I have a few idea's I've been kicking around, and have narrowed it down to those that I'd really like to draw and think would look good/be entertaining, but they're also the types of stories that I KNOW editors aren't really looking for right now. They're pretty much for my own enjoyment, and I plan on using them to totally go crazy in the art department and really showcase what I can do.
I'm having a hard time settling on which to do, and I WOULD really prefer to do something other people would actually be interested in reading... so if you wouldn't mind taking a minute and checking out the character sketches below and casting a vote, I'd really appreciate any input


♡♡♡DARNED♡♡♡
Scary looking guy up there has his heart set on that pretty girl. Problem is, his looks scare her to death and she wont even talk to him. Unable (for undisclosed reasons) to change his looks, he strikes a deal with the devil to get her to see him in a new light. He doesn't even have to give up his soul as long as he can make sure nothing happens to... the anti-Christ.
(God, I've been toying with this story for years now. It... it has so much potential. And the characters are so fun to draw!)


✖✖✖Dead Beat Dad✖✖✖
Franklin's stuck in an office job he hates in what he's fairly sure is an evil corporation. His wife has left him and he never gets to visit his son. Longing to revive the glory days of his youth, he convinces other guys in his office to start up a band and play small shows after work. Pretty soon the band starts gaining attention... from all sorts of freaks wanting them dead. Can Franklin try to win back his ex with his music, or will his newly found kicking-ass skills reclaim her affections instead?
(This is so much the Office meets...like... I dont know. Oni's Heavy Metal or Maintenance that I'd never submit this to an editor... but I want to draw it SO BAD)


☆☆☆Left☆☆☆
I... I can't think of how to summarize this without either sounding really cheesy or giving a lot away. It's a total fantasy adventure story, along the lines of Escaflowne or Record of Lodoss War though... um...
basically, after being imprisoned for a crime he could not help but commit 5 years ago, Landr, our hero, is offered a choice to fight for his crumbling kingdom, or face exile. Figuring the kingdom had done nothing for him but needlessly throw him in jail, he sets out on the road, trying to avoid trouble at all costs. But that never works in these types of stories. All I can say about the rest of the plot is... choices, and the ability to make them, are controlled and manipulated in unimaginable ways by a force tearing the world apart...

OH GOD, I'M REALLY LAME AREN'T I? :C BUT LOOK AT HOW SEXY THOSE GUYS ARE. GUH. I MISS DRAWING PRETTY GUYS. CAN YOU TELL??

ALSO if you have a webcomic and would like me to link to it from mine, please comment!

I like Darned the most, Dead Beat Dad sounded exciting until I read the premise and found out it was not actually about dads.

I say Darned

Cara M said...

Haha, well, the main character, Franklin, is a dad trying to win back the attention of his son by playing drums and kicking zombie ass.

I really like the idea for all of these...but Darned seems like the most fun. Can't wait to see which one you choose!

Audrey Morris said...

Oh wait, I skimmed the part about it being about dads somehow. NEVERMIND, WRITE ABOUT DADS, if there are no sensible cardigans and sweater vests present I will be so disappointed

ReneeRivas said...

My vote is for Darned. Like your cute kid devil. The Deadbeat Dads sounded fun too though...

Jacqueline said...

Go for Darned! I love me some scary-looking guys, and I think that you could have some cool demon people and stuff in there too, to enrich the look of it! Neeeeat.

I agree that "Darned" is the best. It is a good title, and the characters/ plot sound and look the most interesting.

I would go for Darned. It sounds like it has the most potential to be really cute and funny, with lots of interesting things that could happen in the plot. And you could come up with lots of cool characters for demons and such.

I like Darned the most. It sounds super interesting and the most like your own thing, you know? I'd read it :F
