Comic making guidlines:

Part: 1 send me your sheet and bio!

This here is where you can find out how we will be setting up or basing the episodes. First, PM all authors what you plan on doing. Second, After everyone agrees that your idea flows with previous comics, and that it does not clash with future comic ideas, you will first send everyone the comic before its made official, that way we can all give advice, tips, and ideas in case there are MAJOR clashes. Minor clashes between ideas should be settled with me and those involved. This will make the story flow much smoother, and we will (hopefully) have less confusion and make higher quality comics!

This is the important stuff.

A.K.A The storyline and kit (for authors, may contain spoilers)

The kit

The insurrectionist group, called "Rift" has started open rebellion against the government of Terra. The leader, Ptolemic, has disappeared, with no word of what to do. Constant dissidents join the ranks, and many a rogue join. To start things off, one of the officers (authors, in this case Soran) leads a group to find Ptolemic. While this is happening, other officers rally the rebels and stage different attacks on the Terran Army. Later, once Ptolemic has returned, the group is attacked by Terran special forces (kit not yet done!). Ptolemic himself is tainted by a dark substance, something not yet ready to be mention much in the comic. That is all, for now...

Thank You for your cooperation

The series has promise to become much more serious, but this first comic kind of casts it off with the ways it portrays what's supposed to be serious, such as "Want to start a resistance?" and how it changes scenes quickly.Waiting to see more. Oh, and make the panels bigger. The text, especially is hard on the eyes.

Not sure how the storyline is going, but I'll be sure to check in often because it seems rather interesting. I can't tell much from the first comic, but it does seem compelling. Nice going, I hope to see more.~Soran

Yeah, I didn't think it would have been so small. And in sense, the guys aren't all to serious to begin with,which is why they're so blatant.Also, I fixed the comic :D

Yay, the comic is now much easier to read. the beginning is so mysterious, like, "Who are the Terrian grunts, what are they affiliated with?" I'm starting to wonder who the purple and red person is as well. I expect the story to dwell on who is who, and what they do, and such soon. I wonder what they want to start a resistance from, and what they are resisting. I hope to see some answers soon...~Soran

Wow, that last comic was pretty awesome, the end was really dramatic. I liked it a lot. I wonder who the mysterious group of matoran with the black eyes are, and the Terrian Grunts. Its an interesting story, all though it seems a bit too fast paced. Might need to slow it down and explain more things in more specific details. Keep up the good work.~Soran

Thanks for the input guys! I intend on slowing things down, add a bit more panels for action scenes, and I'm typing up the script/text while making the comic, then adding it in GIMP last, that way I remember what they're supposed to be saying :P

Also, I'll be explaining one faction in the upcoing comic, due anytime this week.

Don't know how long I'll make it, but it will be good and suspensful.

This is very interesting, and I'd love to join. The color of the text is not well matched to the person, and so I mix things up. XD@1: Good intro.@2: Is the red matoran of them working with the agents?@Filler: Uh-oh... good set up for a kidnap.

Been longer then I'd prefer, BUT, I got a new comic up :D

Ohanzee

Next comic will most likely be by one of the other authors.

That said, if you want to make a comic, just pm and we can work things out. You will be introducing your character FYI.

Uh... Okay, i'm really not sure how to respond this. On one end, it looks good, effects are great - aside from some of the text being a bit difficult to read. I'd suggest using a different font and, if needed, make it bigger/bold font effect. Good luck, Ro.

Thanks for the input! I've been wanting to do text bubbles, but a) I have no experience with it, http://www.bzpower.c...tyle_emoticons/default/cool.png I want text bubbles that fit and look good :P

I'm trying to find colors for the text and a better font, anyone good with gimp text or any free programs that would help?

Text bubbles are actually pretty easy to create and you can download specific fonts from websites, same with specific brushes for Gimp. Just Pm me and I'll help you out with it.Well nothing to say much about the last comic besides that it was really interesting. It looks like the grey person might of been a ally to the red masks group. Interesting storyline so far...~Soran

Sure thing, I'll pm you the backgrounds and other information on what I do.~SoranJust noticed all the mistakes I made in the comic. Ouch. Messed up on some of the eye glow colors using red instead of orange and also forgot to focus blur some of the background when doing a close up on the characters. Gotta remember those things next time.

So seeing as I wont be able to introduce my character anytime soon, someone want to do it?Oh, and nice header :P

Hmm, this, shall be trying...~Ro
