Comicompo 3

READ THE COMIC

5 months and 76 pages later, it is revealed that all 4 teams were actually working together.  Their unity will bring about a creation that will reshape the universe and change man kind for the better.  Comicompo3 has finally arrived.

THE COMIC IS DONE!  READ THIS:  Each page is credited to its author, as well as link to any website of their choosing (usually this is a portfolio website, or a blog, or whatever.)  Please PM me if you want a website linked to on your page.  Also, if you wish to change the name your page is credited to also include that in the PM.  Thanks!

What's a comicompo?
It's a comic by the community.  Everyone involved draws one page of the comic based only on the previous.  The entire comic is later assembled into a masterpiece.  Check out the last comicompo to see what kind of chaos ensues from this creation process.

How do I sign up?
Sign up's at this very moment are CLOSED.  There have been a few drop outs, and I want to fill the comics out to as close to 20 pages as I can.  If you have interest in being throw into the comic at this point in a random position, then SEND ME A PM STATING SUCH I will not be checking the thread for interest.  Also note that if you send me a PM saying you want to be in the comic, your turn may come up very soon.

Anyone can participate, and everyone is invited to participate.  It's not about artistic talent, but rather people of all types in the community coming together to create something amazing.

What do I do after signing up?
Pay attention to this thread.  After the order of the comic is announced it'll be up to you to make sure you don't drop the ball when it comes time to do your page.  You'll be getting a PRIVATE MESSAGE from me on this forum when your time comes.  The message will contain the page before yours.  Your job is to make a new page of the comic based only from that previous page.  When you're finished, send your page back to me and the comic continues.

The order of the comic is NOT the order you sign up in.  It is completely randomized after the sign ups are complete.  So pay attention to that order once it's announced.

What are the rules?
  • You have 5 days to complete your comic page
  • You can pass your turn a single time, but please do this as soon as your turn arrives.  This will change your position in the queue.  If you foresee a scheduling issue well before your time arrives, it's not a problem to move you around without counting that as your passed turn.
  • In the interest of time, if your 5 days expires and you don't respond at all, we will assume that you are dead and you are booted from the comic.
  • If you have already passed your turn, and you fail to complete your page on your 2nd chance then you are booted from the comic.
  • Finish your page, or else.  Don't send me uncompleted pages at the deadline.
  • The image must be at least 612px x 792px in size, and maintain a 8.5 x 11 aspect ratio.

What are some other tips?  (Not so much rules.)
  • Don't start on a page that is out of the scope of what you can do in 5 days.  If you're planning on taking 3 days just to ink your page, you're probably doing it wrong.
  • The intention of the comic is to make a continuous story from page to page, so try to keep the narrative going.  Remember, the person after you is only going to see YOUR PAGE, so try to make sure they have at least some idea what's going on.
  • Be careful about making a completely off the chart wacky page that has absolutely nothing to do with the previous in any way.  It tends to break the narrative, and some people don't enjoy that too much.
  • That being said, nothing is too crazy or off limits for the comic, but it would be appreciated if the narrative wasn't completely severed by a single page this time around.
  • If you don't have a scanner, maybe you shouldn't draw your comic on paper and just start digitally.
  • If you can't draw, who cares.
  • Pay attention to where you are in the queue and get ready to start your page when it's time
  • Try not to change your forum name into something completely different or crazy if you're going to participate, because that's how I'm keeping track of who you are.

THE PLAN
Comicompo 3 is going to be the MULTI-COMIC FRENZY.  Due to the immense popularity of last year's comic, this year the sign ups will be split up into different leagues.  Each league is responsible for one comic.  The ultimate goal is to have a bunch of smaller comics around 15 to 20 pages each, depending on the amount of sign ups it gets.  This will ensure that it doesn't take 10 months to complete the comic.

Other than that, this comic is going to be run the same way the previous two have.

Now, when it comes to a theme, that's a question for you guys.  Would you rather have a common plot line or theme to kick off each comic, or would you rather entrust it into the hands of whoever gets the first page?

That's about it
I was going to write an april fools joke here or something but this is no time for jokes.  This is the comicompo.

Stay tuned for updates edited into this post.

I don't think there's much point to this, by the 3rd page the theme will probably twisted into something completely different already. That's the magic of the comicompo.
