I like all of Qyzex's proposed tourney ideas.  I'm especially drawn to Welcome Wagon Tourney and the Background Tourney. I feel that the background tourney will really push artists to hone their skills in that area.

I didn't tweak too much, but here is little angie and little asian ghost girl gray.  Also, Ivan Reinhardt and Wyatt Graves are free for anyone to redesign if they want.

Shoujin! Your gift is from TheBenTOne!
...But they didn't turn it in. I'm sorry =( So yours will be late.

Not anymore! Suggested and with permission (to post on this thread) from Shen herself, who was too busy getting roaring drunk at the bar at the time, your gift will instead be coming from...............ME!

Happy New Year!

OMG! THANKS SO MUCH JACKSTER! I LOVE IT! This really brought up my low spirits. Thanks again!

Would anyone be up for a meetup around June 7-9th? Otakutaylor is gonna be visiting and he wants to meet all you awesome dudes.

Tentatively putting down yes because I'll be getting back from Anime Expo around the 7th or 8th! It would be cool to jam with voidpeeps again.

I thought Anime Expo was in July? o_O

Edit: Never mind found the site you used for postcards.

How is the quality in your opinion with overnight prints?  Do I  order from the same site and have it mailed directly to you? Or are you talking about postcards (that I already should have on hand) sent to you?

Happy belated birthdays to some of the characters here, I'll get to making some celebratory pics of each sometime soon.  As for now, Ivan's birthday passed too...haaah...I feel like a bad parent.  Been busy with my project which stars Ivan.  SO! To celebrate his birthday I'm posting one of the final images from my finished project.

Happy Birthday to my dearest Ivan!

1.How did you choose your partner? What qualities made them an appealing partner?

I didn't have a partner set just yet, though I was hoping to partner with WilliamDuel's Cavallero to try and do some Avant Guardian comics.  However, he dropped out so I ended up on the list of people needing a partner. Video approached me with the prospect of teaming Jules with Ivan, which would be interesting since I'd had some idea of how to connect our characters together even before the tag tournament.  I had hopped onto the Void chat, and it swauger suggested I partner with Julienya since she was looking for a partner.  I was hoping to do something with another AG member, so that's how our partnership was settled.

2. How much did your characters and story plans dictate this choice, if any?

It doesn't seem like touched to much on the history, though we did relate some jokes in our comic to previous battles.  We had the Avant Guardians as our common ground, but our characters had never interacted with each other before.  We figured, we'd have our characters go to a store together to restock on supplies, diabolos for Ivan and arrows for Nyaasu.  It would be a perfect place to start and we could easily adapt to different tag teams that came our way in this neutral setting.

3.How much research was required to craft your conflict with your opponents? If you did any at all.

For myself, I had to re-read some of both Mr. Awesome and Casino Reasoning's stories to re-familiarize myself with the characters and their personalities.


4. How did you communicate your battle plans, brainstorming, progress with your partner?

We first communicated in Void chat, then we took it to Skype which is where all our communication has been.

5. Did you feel the communication was good or could be improved? If so, what worked/didn’t work?

I feel that our communication was pretty good, though I often forgot that we had a 3 hours difference between the two of us. But I think we communicated very well.

6. What mediums or tools did you use to communicate effectively?

Skype.  We didn't really use any other path of communication.


7. Who performed which duties to your comics creation? Plotting, Scripting, Pencils, Inks, Colors, Lettering?

We both plotted the story together, we would throw ideas into the mix, like Nyaasu and the mecha suit and rearranged the elements to work.  After we put together the story, I was in charge of doing the thumbnails and I also included notes on what happened in the panels as well as suggestions on what dialogue could be used.  From there, Julienya took my thumbs and used them as the base for the digital inks. While she did the inks, she made the necessary amendments to the script/dialogue.  She works so much faster than I do in digital.
Whenever she finished pages, she'd send them to me, and I did the coloring. Towards the end it was cutting it close and I'm not that fast at coloring, so she took over the coloring for the last two pages of our comic.

8. How did you determine the division of labor between you and your partner?
We divided the work based on our strengths which were hashed out right away.  She inks digitally much faster than I do, so linework would be completed much quicker so that color could be applied. She also is wonderfully talented at making the best facial expressions on characters. I'm not that confident of my coloring skills but I thought I could do my best to support Julienya with coloring the pages she inked. I did the initial panelling within my thumbnails and left it to Julienya to change them if she saw a better solution.

9. What strengths or weaknesses did you attempt to manifest/cover up in your shared duties?

I would often ask Julienya for her opinion on the colors or backgrounds, asking whether the textures were too strong or colors too bold.

10. Did you encounter some snags in your process that your partner helped you overcome?
Um, she helped keep me in check when I was applying too strong a texture and gave me advice.

11. Were there any disagreements that arose between the two creators? Script issues, art issues, final cut decisions?

I think we had a hard time settling on a conflict for the comic and what the characters would be fighting over.  For the most part we talked to each other about everything and made sure things were okay with each other.

12. How did you resolve any disputes that arose? Who made the final call?

We just discussed it together and chose what we both agreed with.


13. Are you satisfied with the fruits of your shared labors?

Yes, I am VERY proud of our work together.  I had a lot of fun and our work is beautiful!

14. If yes, why? If no, what can you account that to and how can this be improved in the future?

Our work was all sorts of fun, though I only wish I could have done more to help.

15. Who did you want to fight in this tourney?

AnTinWoodsman and Hiemie because I wanted to do AG vs Murphy's Law; Video320 and Mistah Kent because I've wanted to fight them for a while and I think we could have made an awesomely funny match against them.

16. Who did you fear to fight?

AnTinWoodsman and Hiemie; Fel and Pyras

17. What was the funniest thing that happened between your partnership during the comics creation?

Uh, I think all the funny expressions/art Julienya made that of course never made it to the final.

18. What was the most rewarding part?

The fact that we finished everything with so much time to spare.

19. What was the most difficult part of your comics creation?

Scripting, working faster.

20. If you could do it all again, would you and what would you do differently?

I wouldn't do anything different, but I do wonder what it would have been like if we had switched it up with me doing inks/pencils and Julienya doing color instead.

Confirmed: Ivan Reinhardt and Nyasuu for the Avant-Guardians! :D

« on: Jan 25, 2013, 02:43 AM »
Hey dudes, gonna jump on here.  Been a long time, but I'm excited about this. 

I'm signing up with Ivan Reinhardt:

Currently I don't have a partner so I'll be on the searching for a partner list unless William_Duel would be interested in partnering up Cavallero with Ivan.  It'd be great if we could do Avant-Guardian comics.
