||therockman|| and RanZombie
We here on Void like to extend a congratulations to the pair for coming out on top of this contest, and a great big THANK YOU to ALL of the teams that decided to take part!
Wacky Races Double Dash wouldn't have been possible without your Heart, Passion, and Awesome Story Telling skills!!! I hope to see more from all the characters featured in Double Dash in new stories in the near future.
Now a Certain Songbird caught up to the 2 winners and decided to ask them a few questions in this segment we like to call
Question One - What about Wacky Races Double Dash did you enjoy the most?
Rockman : The plot/idea in general. I love racing stories.
RanZombie : I think it was the opportunity to draw that type of comic. It's not every day that one has a very clear excuse to try out doing driving scenes and such. It also allowed us to think about having the background/scenery be a character in itself to make each race through it interesting.
Question Two - Which character or characters were fun to write or draw?
Rockman: Obviously my own, but I also enjoyed Simon and Blueberry and Dairyu and Rickter.
RanZombie : It was definitely fun to work with every single character that entered the tournament, but I especially enjoyed drawing Mythra as well as Dairyus dragon/steed form.
Question Three - Tell us about your art process in this event.
Rockman: Rantu(RanZombie) and I both came up with the plot, Rantu(RanZombie) was in charge of the thumbnails and pencils, I was in charge of the inking, greytones, effects, speech bubbles and paneling.
RanZombie : Normally what I would do is script a very rough outline in my mind, do thumbnails, and then get to penciling. Only once it's all done do I sit down and actually write the dialogue.
In this case, when working with Rockman, we decided it'd be best if instead we laid down a solid script, detailing significant dialogue exchanges, and then got to work on the rest. Also, rather than finishing all the thumbnails first, I would do thumbs for a couple pages, complete those pages, and then do more thumbs. That way we could both be consistently working on the comic by having a steady flow of pages from early on. The downside being that it was hard to calculate just how long the comic would be, as I'm personally unable to envision that with the script alone.
Question Four - Can we expect more stories of Mob and Rantu in the near future? If yes, do you care to share any details?
RanZombie: Oh for sure! We are working on the Wacky Races epilogue as of right now. After that however, Mob and Rantu will have their own journeys to embark on. Hopefully those comics come out sooner than later.
Question Five - Any advice for your fellow Voiders?
Rockman : Don't be too ambitious with projects and keep in mind what is doable for the time you have.
RanZombie : Keep at it and focus on the stories you want to tell! Instead of worrying about what others might like, I've always felt it's best to stick to writing the comics you're really passionate about. That passion will translate into a good piece in the end.
