2 good comics vs. 3 sometimes shoddy comics(and other comic

Postby Zillford-x on Wed Apr 04, 2001 7:30 am

well, things are getting really busy for me, and i was wondering what you, the reader, thought about me making a temporary(note: only temporary!!) change to 2 comics a week. i know thats not much, but they would be better drawn, and better thought out.<P>but if you think the last... oh, i don't know, 3 were any good. tell me, and whatever gets the most response(and my own final choice <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">) will be the way it is for a bit.<P>and then when school ends for the summer expect 3 really nice comics a week. maybe even a color sunday or two <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>other stuff:
how would you people feel about little quicky contests every once in awhile? trivia, art, crazeeness, whatever contests?
with cheap(a.k.a. free, cause they'd be pictures i draw at your request) prizes for the winner?<P>
and finally, anyone here like chrono trigger?
good, ok keep your hands up if you like my comic too... ok we lost a few there <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">
anyone want to see the RA cast in Chrono Trigger regalia that i drew a week ago?
just for fun?<P>
well, what are you waiting for? POST A REPLY!

Hrmm...I think I could deal with only 2 a week.
The quicky contests sound good to me...(evil laughter as he works on plans to win said contests...what? I don't know what they are yet? So? something will work... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> )
Oh, and bring on the C.T. pic, please.<P>Ghostwolf out...(and the evil laughter continues)...<P>------------------

I think, when you are more happy with 2 comics a week, then do so.
And besides, I better like well-thought strips then when you would do it more sloppy because you're in a hurry.
Yup.
Lesser episodes a week wouldn't keep me from reading it, I also read others that appear just monthly (errr...that's now not a suggestion to draw your comic monthly! I need at least a weekly fix! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> )<P>To the contest-idea: I'd really like to take part, if you do one! Can I call someone? Or ask the audience? Or better, I buy an "E".

well, it seems unanamous(do i have any other fans? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">) i'll be doing only 2 a week until i stop having hallucinations(and my nazi german teacher stops trying to make me look bad in class... luckily i'm pretty good at german, so i make a fool of him.)<P>you read a monthly comic... it wouldn't be Sabrina-Online would it? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> i love that comic(well, i DID put it on my links page <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">).<P>in no particular order heres some more stuff:<P>Chrono Trigger is a game that came out in 95(am i right? 96?) for the Super Nintendo. It is hailed as the best RPG ever by some(me, and thousands more) and maybe even the best SNES game ever.
anyway, the reason i drew the picture is that MY characters fit the game's characters(somewhat, you'll see what i mean <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">)<P>lets see... contest, contest, contest...
you could still try and answer my contest from TCM forum(it doesn't stand anymore, but its the same question).<P>where is this quote from?<P>"What is it about the gates of hell, that compell people to wander into them?"
"it's Smuckers brand preserve!"<P>just to help you, here's another quote from the same episode, same show(oh, another hint! its a tv show)<P>"Pepperage Farm remembers! PEPPERAGE FARM REMEMBERS! oh, screw it, I'm outta here!" <P>anyone know? if not, i'll ask another question. the winner gets to request a picture to be drawn by me(preferably having to do with my comics characters, but anythings ok, it's YOUR request <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">)<p>[This message has been edited by zillford-x (edited 04-05-2001).]

Ah, you dunno where I am from?
I assumed you know, cause I mentioned it several times on the CM board.
Plus, the fact I offered help in learning german could have been a hint... <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"><P>I've been born and am still living in a town that happens to be the capital of a land that happens to be called Germany.

You can count the american movies or TV shows I actually saw in the original language at two hands.
So I'm not able to know many qoutes...as long as you don't bring something from, let's say "The Matrix" for example .

Hey, TDS, where ARE you from? i shoulda thought about quoting american TV if my fans "aren't from around here". ummmm.... i guess this contest is still going but i'll need to think up something international... any suggestions TDS(seeing as you would know about cross continental things). <P>ok, the Chrono Trigger picture will be up as soon as i get out of school. :P<P>
almost the weekend! time to make some comics!<P>also, i'm going to scan and post my "huge project" picture(it's taken me 4 days to draw it so far... still havn't finished the pencil stage :eek <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>finally:
anyone else a "consistant" fan? do you read this every other day(during the week)? or do you read it about every month? does anyone besides TDS and ghosty read this(or at least the forum as well.. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">)

Chrono Trigger? BOOYAKA!!! (/selphie)<P>Ahem. As far as the 2 vs. 3 thing goes, well, it's your call. I haven't seen any problem with the quality on the three-strips-a-week schedule, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.<P>As for contests, well, that's cool. I won't win any, to be sure, but that's still cool. Hmm. Current quote sounds like something out of "Whose Line Is It Anyway". Well, it's like I always say, if you don't know the answer, random guesses work just as well. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P><a href="http://chrisandcrew.keenspace.com">CJ</a>

first off... <P>CJ, i'm SURE you can win at least ONE of my contest... some of them will be super easy(like, what animal is random?{unless you, like some people apparently, can't tell random from sami...{, or what color is the sky{on average <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">}) and are only tests for "who checks my forum the most"<P>hehe, that goes for all of you! check here daily(ok, ok, i know, i'm mean... i'll only post CONTESTS on the same day as comics... which, (as if you didn't know) untill the end of school, are monday, friday(tho normally there is a wednesday, and will be in the summer) to make sure you can win these super easy contests... maybe i'll even warn you at the start of the week.<P>and TDS, i'm not very good at remembering things, so you must forgive me for forgeting that you come from the great land of Germany. its cool, 'cause i am taking german in school(again, as if you didn't know, from this thread)let's see if my learning is staying with me... you live in Bonn, right?<P>oh boy, maybe i'm an idiot though...<P>and, (did i ask you earlier?) how old are you?
or don't tell me, depending on how protective of personal info you are.<P>one final question for TDS,
how did you learn english so well? just curious.<P>okey day.. this is a big ol' ramblin' post
so heres the chrono trigger pic...
<IMG SRC="http://randomaccess.keenspace.com/images/pictures/chronoaccess.jpg">
sorry about the pencil-ness of it, i didn't have the time to ink it(why do you think I'm dropping to 2 comics a week?) any questions or comments on it?<P>
about the current contest...
oi, maybe i made it TOO obscure, but yeah, random guessing is a good method. no it's not from Who's Line, although i DO watch that show alot.
I'm sorry to my international readers, its kinda american(i think...)<P>I guess i'll give you all a hint, the show is no longer running, it was really funny, it featured a guy named TV's Frank...<P>to much of a hint? we'll see... tune in next time for more hints(if it isn't guessed...*shrug*)<P>
and now to end my ramble:<P>has anyone checked out my links page?
ok, seen my other web page?
yeah, seen my art there?
still yeah? liked it?
if yes, then look back soon for a bunch more(soon being within a week).

one of my friends suggested that maybe YOU were a wierd stalker/fan just because you almost immediatly drew me some fan art, and praised all my work on the other forums. I told him you just liked my stuff .

I'm not a stalker, I just happen to like your strip, and I feeled sorta obligated to do a fanart, cause you draw me this kewl furry-pic.
Plus, I like to practise my drawing, and when it's then actually useful...how can I resist that?

the license age over there is 18 right? and doesn't it cost lots more? like 200 marks? oh well, from what I hear, public transportation in Germany is great anyway.
</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>yup, no license when you're under 18. therefore all kind of liqouers are buyable with 18, and I think beer with 16...but not sure about last statement (not that I make much use of that!).
and 200 DM for a license?
I would have been happy to just pay that.
It cost me more the 2000 DM (rough guessed over 1000$).
Germany is one of the countries where you get a driving license the most difficult.
And the public transportation system is the reason why I'm not owning a car.
I can go everywhere a lot fatser by bus/subway or city-railway.

Nope, I'm not living in Bonn, I'm living in Berlin. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">
But don't worry, it's an excuseable mistake, Bonn was indeed once the capital of Germany, but that changed after the reunion in 1989.<P>Well, because I guess the chances of you being a stalker pretty slim <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> :
I turned 19 last month (and I'm still not over it - where does all the time disappear to?). <P>I have english at school since 4th grade, but that just brought me the basics (This is Judy. Judy has a dog. The dog barks.).
What boosted my english skills into a level, that I could actually speak with english folks, was my discovery of a neat little thing called Internet.
English is pretty wide spread there, and so I got used to it. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>I even read now some english books, what is pretty funny, cause it makes the books always seem more important (I could impress a friend of mine pretty much with reading some books from the Animorphs series).<P>I also started to actually listen to song lyrics (most of the people here don't get them, it's just about how catchy the tune is), what caused funny realisations.
*coughTheThongSongcough*
<IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P>Okay, enough of my english-history.
I remember I found the pic on your other page once already, I recalled the background pic with Lola on the bib.jpg (I've been searching for a copy from the movie that time, that's why it got stuck in my mind).
Do you take criticism?
I think the tail on the shockwavewolf-pic looks more like the one of a fox.
But besides that it's kewl.

thats great! I guessed that you were roughly my age(16), but i wasn't sure.
