Sword Week

Postby Orion on Wed Mar 10, 2004 12:03 am

Heya, I'm not totally sure this is the right place but it seemed to be the best. basically I wanted to request some guest art.

basically the character in my comic who is a sword enthusiast much along the lines of greg dean from Real Life. He's been transported to a fantasy dimension and will soon be shopping for a sword.

basically I was going to switch to a daily format for the duration of the shopping and was just going to have pictures of the swords he was looking at along with a short dialogue between him and his sister each strip. I figured it might be a cool time to have some guest art from other sword fans. basically it would either be just a picture of a cool fantasy sword or the character, Orion, with the sword. If no one helps me I may cry :cry:

sorry, it's Beyond Reality, it's a comic about dimensional/parallel travel with a lot of fantasy thrown in.

Excellent. black and white is sort of the standard with colors for special effects. but feel free to make it colored if you like.

BladeRoden- you rock.

This is great. Since I don't script my comic very well I'm a little unsure when the shopping spree begins, except that it will be at least 2 to 3 weeks, mostly since I only update tri-weekly.

Sword week will last until I run out of stuff. the basic idea is Orion, an ADHD-riddled fantasy geek who loves swords, finds himself transported to a fantasy-style (one might even say RPG rip-off) world. Naturally he wants to finally get his hands on an actual magic sword. his sister, who plays the role of the more sensible character, knows how bad it would be for her hyperactive, overenthusiastic, uncoordinated brother to get his hands on a long sharpened piece of metal, let alone a magical one. so the deal is that he can get a sword so long as she decides that its safe.

so the vision I have for each comic is basically him gushing over a sword and her disaproving it for various reasons. Eventually he will get a sword, I intend for it to be a big sword- big as in FFVII.

Ok, Just so you guys know, I intend for sword week to start a week from monday. I already have pimpette's strips, but anyone else who wants to draw something should know the clock is running.

I can't draw genuine Heroic Fantasy Art, but I could probably come up with a one-off strip involving a character from my own strip and a sword for sale, if you are interested.
