Plots and Plannings

Guys, I’m so excited!  I have the next two  pages of the comic ready for posting and I’m nearly done with the third.  *squeeeeeee!*

That being said I only plan on posting once a week.  I want to make sure to have a buffer so that I can make the best comics I can without having to worry about rushing a deadline.

I plan on posting on Tuesdays and watching the stats to see when everyone checks the comic.  I might make adjustments as I go.  This is my first comic, and I’m certain there will be mistakes made.  Bare with me folks, this is going to be an interesting journey.

I also have plans for a cast page and will be working on that between working on the comics.  I want to introduce you to the crew as they begin to appear.  It will be easier to follow the story if you have a guide to who is who.  I’ve found it to be valuable in the past myself.  I won’t be giving away spoilers, you’ll have to actually read the comic to find out what’s going on.

I have plans for this blog above and beyond talking about my own comic.  (Which trust me, will get very boring for both you AND me.) I believe in community and want to really help support those who have been doing this longer than I have.  I have been a fan of web comics for years now and would love to share some of the comics that have really touched my heart or dazzled my eyes.  Believe me there are many out there that are spectacular.  I will be sharing my favorites  with you to help keep the web comic addiction alive.

Beyond webcomics I have a bunch of graphic novels that I love.  You better believe I will be posting those here as well.  Honestly, the idea of merging great writing with beautiful art has long been an idea that has intrigued me.  You can say so much with a picture that you just can’t capture with words.  Writing is vital, you can’t have a great comic without it, but when you put words and pictures together you can tell a story that becomes more intense, more specific to the writer’s ideas.

I am not getting paid to do this, I’m doing it because I want to share a few things that bring me joy.

Maybe they will bring you joy too.

Last Three Crew Still Needed

If you can dedicate your time to this little venture and want to really help support this project, I am still in need of three crew members.

Boatswain –
Master Gunner –
Rigger –

Two of these individuals are more dirty and grungy than the rest of the crew.

  • The Rigger is super thin and agile, he wears as little as Eudora will let him get away with so as not to get caught up in the ropes, sails and balloons.
  • The Master Gunner is middle aged and always covered in gunpowder and usually wears a bandana.  He has no less than two guns on him at all times.
  • The Boatswain looks like he works hard, but at least he bathes.

If you are interested let me know!

In the Beginning There Was a Call

We are all crazy here...

We are all crazy here…

Hello my fellow RPers!

I am finally putting my plans to make a comic on the front burner.  I have wanted to make a comic using SL as the graphic medium for many years now, and the time as come to make it happen.

However, I need your help with this!

I need secondary characters and extras to make sure that each picture is perfect.

So here is your casting call!

I am in need of several main and secondary characters.  These characters will be seen regularly in the comic and I will be fairly picky about their appearance.

The story will be steampunk/fantasy and all AVs and their costumes must be pre-approved before the shoot.  I will let you know beforehand what characters are needed and when. So if you are not needed you will know beforehand and will have that night free to do as you wish.  I am thinking of doing a shoot every Monday or Thursday night depending on what works best for my models.  It should only take 1-2 hours at most.  I am hoping to have one comic page done per week. I will be posting the comic on a webpage for everyone to enjoy.  All models will be given credit for their appearance in the comic.  This is not, however, a paid gig.

Here is a list of main characters that need to be filled, keep in mind these characters will be called on more often than most and so will need to be able to make more shoots.  I welcome alts, but since these are used most often, you cannot play two main characters on the same account.

Please note I am looking for characters, not just your average SL hottie.  Make them tall, make them short, make them fat or super thin.  Make them a character that is truly fun.  Be creative!

Boyd Rencoat – Ship’s Captain – Heather S.
Eudora – Quarter Master – Heather S.
Samuel Rencoat – Sailing Master – Nathaniel Ballard
Boatswain –
Rosabelle the Engineer – Sia
Carpenter & Surgeon – Sia
Master Gunner –
Rigger –
Elijah the Cabin Boy – Wren
The Talon – Devious Requiem
The Fae King – GwythyrGwynn
The Fae Queen –
The Prophet – Dyisi
The Demon Queen – Heather S.

Here is a list of Secondary Characters that need to be filled. They will not be needed on a regular basis, and can most certainly be alts or different outfits of folks not currently on screen. This is not a complete list.

Arthur Fleming The Magistrate of Vardala –
The Magistrate’s Daughter –
The Governor of Magdalina –
Parthenope The Siren – Edda Barrowstone
Ligeia The Siren –
Leucosia The Siren –
The Thief –
The Harbor Master –

Here is a list of Extras that will go a long way to creating the world we are making.  I am less concerned about what these look like so long as they maintain the steampunk/fantasy feel of the world.  They will not be needed on a regular basis, and can most certainly be alts or different outfits of folks not currently on screen.

Guards – (these will be required to look similar for obvious reasons)
Townfolk – (Both Victorian and Middle Ages/Fantasy)
Fae – (Mer, Pixies, Elves, Trolls, etc.)
Vampires –
Werewolf –
Demons –

These lists are not 100% complete.  As the story goes on it may require different or more characters.  If you wish to sign up for a part let Vedis Seid know and she will put you into The Comic Project group so you can receive updates and notices as needed.

Thanks!
