Here is a comic strip i did last summer while learning Lightwave, the game was to do one a day during a month, and without dialogues.
here it is :) :

that's really cool. i like your style:D

Can it be? A comic strip... online... and it's actually humerous?
Well done. This is great work. You've created a very distinct style, and not just visually.
Do you think you'd ever animate something like this?

That is REALLY neat! Very simple, very effective!

10-22-2003, 02:45 PM
Just simply fantastic! It's amazing how much emotion you can portray with even the simplist of characters, great style too, reminds me of Blutack!

Thanks for the nice comments, it's good to know some people like your work :)
I'm going to submit it (again) to comics.com and ucomics.com, we never know, any other idea to whom i could submit this strip ?

ps: riki ?? the forum cop ?

hehe I wasn't going to say anything, but hey, it's a good way of getting your post score up, and in all honestly, most of those threads really were great, nice and neat.

julos, I was looking over your comics again, and I was thinking about the colors. At first I remembered it as being void of colors in general, kind of like all those pre-texture radiosity images. but then I noticed that there are lots of different really suttle colors. Did you have a particular scheme in mind? Or did you just add another random color to each new object/character you created?

"This is cool!", "That's cool!", "That's cool!", "This is Cool!", "That's way Cool!!", "That's not cool!"

What is this a registerred list of everything that's cool?? Stuff might be cool, but it gets a brain numbing after awhile.

At least add some comments. Why is it cool? How could it be better??

Renderingfarmer, yes i had a particular idea in mind : keep it as simple as possible and get to the point, so i almost only use grey for world objects and blue for the character and the "atmosphere", then i could use some red to highlight an idea.
But then there are no rules, i could use green one day if i felt like it. :)

Riki, what's the link with this thread ? couldn't you just send a private message to the person concerned ?

10-22-2003, 10:57 PM
Sorry, not meaning to take over your thread, just replying to your comment.

I have checked out all the strips and must say that I like the humour in them as much as the groovy artwork.

The crew in the office also really enjoyed em heaps.

Cheers! :p

Riki - your comment was way cool dude!


10-23-2003, 11:34 AM

I really think you could do very well with these strips, having seen the full set - there is a consistent amusing style.

The quality pretty much rules out cheap magazines - but if you get them in a monthly mag you would start with enough for a couple of years!

Have you considered sending a few samples to glossy gadget magazines? Or to a literary agent? They would go very nicely in a magazine like 'Wired'. Send a few on glossy photos, to really emphasize the quality of your work! Maybe four on a sheet of A4 photo paper?

Even if you don't get a lot of money for a monthly strip, the exposure could be VERY valuable, and make your name.

Go for it!

I would have to concur with Starbase1: Make some money off of your cool art.

I found the strip quite refreshing and uttered an audible, "Awww...!", when I was at the end. Many women would cut the Scales out and paste it on their wall. It was that cute.

Thanks a lot for the encouragements :) I didn't think it was going to be this welcome :) i'm going to print a few and send them to comics syndicates and magazines, we never know.

10-24-2003, 05:23 AM
Try and find the contact info for agents who have dealt with syndicated comic strips too - that way they would do all the work for you!
