Haha there's nothing stopping anyone from being both if they want to, other than time commitments. ;)

On a more serious note, please keep in mind that usual battle rules for the roulette will apply. They'll just be regular battles between the trainees, with the mentors on hand to verbally advise. This means that hands-on assistance, such as redlining, isn't allowed on any work to go into the battle. A mentor could draw out what they would recommend and the trainee could draw from that, but direct work by the mentor would be unfair.

Thanks to everyone who's applied so far!

Good point on redlines, Pomo. Yeah, if I ever catch anyone using my drawovers in the final page, you’re getting the stick.

Thanks to everyone who signed up to be a mentor!
Potential trainees, now it's your turn!
Fearn, Jiisuri, Heathen and Shen have offered their guiding hand in battle - please post on this thread if you'd like to be a trainee, and who you'd ideally like to have mentor you!

Ahhhh. Well, I really want to keep leveling up, so I'm gonna try being a trainee. Hope that's okay.

I struggle mostly with panel composition, storytelling, and pacing. Sometimes dialogue. And framing scenes.

Based on their mentor profile about experimentation and their more strict update deadline, I think I'd like to choose Fearn if at all possible. Although all the mentors have something nice to offer. I do not know if we get second choices, but if we do, I'd also love to work with Heathen.

Thank you for considering me!

Applying as a trainee! Since this tournament starts on the 20th, in the situation that I do get picked up as a trainee, I disclaim that I'll be starting my fall semester (I will be free on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday/Sunday, but we can talk in detail about this if necessary once the ball gets rolling) so developing my time-management skills is something to be considered.

I have a specific schedule I work with during 1-week battles, but no doubt this will be prone to change this time around so we can talk about that. I'm completely free before and after school, so we can talk via discord (DM's, screenshare, and/or voicechat is a-ok with me), e-mail works as well but I tend to be slow on replies with that method). Never been on Google hangouts before, but there's a first time for everything as they say. 

Other then that, as much as I do wanna say that I need help with basically everything, I need the most help with once again time-management (I find I get behind schedule once it's time to color), color scheme/choices, and a little bit of scene composition. Honestly, a first choice for a mentor? Anyone works! I ain't a picky fellow, but if choosing is a must it's a split between Shen and Heathen.

(Wanted to add in, I also wanted to try doing a horizontal-oriented comic, but if I can't then I can't but I do wanna give it a try in this rumble!)

Okay, giving this a shot anyway.

Writing's a huge problem for me, so I'd at least like to find a way to improve upon that.  Time management's another thing worth looking into improving as well.

That said, I'm fine with anyone,, but if I really had to choose, I guess I'd go with Jiisuri.

The prospect of one week terrifies me as I struggle with 4 weekers and getting around 4-5 pages but I need to try this. I work full time but would like to screen share on google share and discord is by far the best way to contact and keep in touch with me. I use all digital and currently using clip studio. I get off work at 8 PM EST monday- wednesday, I have thursdays off, get off work Friday 6 PM, and Saturdays 3 PM

I will be aiming for 2 fully inked pages. So my focus would be on need helping making construction of characters; which i'm terrible at doing consistently, and have no idea what I'm doing when I break down characters into shapes or how to really apply that. however I have managed to salvage that but I end up making it worse with my inks which are also really bad. So the main things i need help with are inks and construction and lines of action. The things I need the least help with are writing and layouts (only because I constantly redo them so I will need help anyways since I know I need to redo my writing a couple times or at the very least the dialogue). while i do also really need help with coloring and shading it's not feasible to try and do that in this time for me. I'm also super slow so really i would like ways to do my stuff smarter since I feel like a lot of what I do is just really inefficient.

For mentors Heathen and Jiisuri both have inks I like but I'm so poor with them pretty sure any mentor can help level up my stuff.

I would like to apply as a Trainee.

I struggle mostly with making characters interact with the environment around them, and giving them dynamic poses and lines of action. I tend to start off invested, and then slowly drop off and procrastinate the longer I have to stay focused, so having a mentor to kick me back into action would be really helpful.
Also I tend to read more indie comics and zines, so I don't have much experience with Industry Standard comic rules and formats.

My first choice for a Mentor would be Heathen, since I feel like he would be able to give me the blunt honesty I need to improve. But anyone else would be good too, if you believe you know things I need to learn from.

I too would like to be a trainee someday. Once I get an intro, which hopefully will be soon.

Awesome I welcome it, sides the idea of a 1 weeker is a scary prospect as well but I still need to go for it.

Thanks Shen and Heathen for making selections.

Jiisuri asked me to pick for him, so since a energy was the first person to request Jii by name, Jii will mentor Energy.

Fearn is MIA right now, but as the deadline has passed, I'll pair Fearn with Yarn witch, and Yarn was the first person to ask for Fearn by name. Fearn will mentor Yarn.

You'll be put into two battles, which I've randomised as below:
ASTRO VS ENERGY
ARTS VS YARN

You have 1 day to decide between yourselves if you want to use characters, and who you'd like to use and post in here letting us know. If we don't hear by then, then the mods will set these up as artists battles.

Thanks and good luck!!
