Okay, first round has passed, so if anyone wants to submit for the next round, heres a new script to work with! It's a little gory so you've been warned:

If you want to finish and post anything you made based off the first, please do :)

Rules again will be 2 weeks time to post, any entries will be put into a poll for community voting. Work from the first 3 pages please!

Okay bambinos! The mystery is no more, please grab yourself the script here - I recommend you focus on the first 1-3 pages, just for your own sanity (it'll make more sense) but if a different array of pages appeal to you, go wild! :

Kellys instructions are pretty forgiving and leave loads of room for exploration, but also present some interesting challenges for you the artist - as you'll see!

Remember, these are just for fun and practice, so please have enjoy working with them over the next couple of weeks. There's really no need for secrecy or spoilers here as there is with battles, so discussion and asking for feedback "in situ" in both in this thread and on the Discord chat are encouraged!

If you want to shake things up and do parodies featuring yours or others void characters, then heck, that'd be neat to see too!

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:

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!!

Thanks everyone!!! Mentors. Remember to choose your trainee before the end of the day on August 17! Please post your confirmations in this thread!!

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!

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!

First post updated as below:

The purpose for this scheme is to have more confident members share their abilities and knowledge directly with members who want to level up their comic-making game. A mentor will take on a single trainee - every person teaches and learns differently, so each process will focus on being tailored to the needs of both teacher and student.
Mentors and Trainees get paired up based on what each individual expects from the process. Ultimately, Mentors are going to have the final say on who they take on as their Trainees, but Trainees can apply to the mentor of their choice. Each trainee will only be able to apply to one mentor at a time.
Once the process has started, you will be entered into a mentor/trainee-specific rumble roulette. This means both mentor and trainee with have a common goal to work towards. Only the trainee is formally entered into the tournament but - mentors: you will be expected to guide your trainee to victory!
After this, we’ll review the process and ask the participants to let us know how they got on with an open discussion in the thread, or an anonymous review for both mentors or trainees.

25 July to 8 August - mentor sign-ups
9 August to 16 August - trainee sign-ups
17 August - mentors must decide and announce any accepted trainees no later than this date. Mentors can formally accept trainees any time they like before this. Please post in this thread to confirm.
20 August - Roulette tournament starts (deadlines as follows):
1 week drawing time
1 week voting period
5 September - debrief and discussion in thread

1-How much work you would expect to be doing: (Realistically, how much of your time can you offer them?)
2-How much work you would expect from your Trainee(s): (Will you be forcing them to work x amount of hours a day, or will you allow them to dictate the workflow?)
3-What you would like to see from your Trainee(s) when they apply: (to help you decide who to take on. Think about: their skill level?
 how long have they been on Void? Do they have a character? Have they battled before?)
4- Your preferred method of communication with your Trainee(s): (Are PMS or discord the best way to contact you? If they're going to need a microphone or webcam to work with you, let them know!)
5- Do you have an area you consider your speciality?: (EG self-promotion, inking, writing, colouring, composition, time management

Hiii everyone!!

Since seeing so much vibe around this thread we're discussing running another go of this alongside a rumble roulette. Trainees will have to take part in the roulette and mentors will help guide them through the process.

We've still got a few of the ins and outs to discuss but please watch this space :)

From my understanding this isn't mutually exclusive, especially where Lily's concerned.

Gutted about Archie too tho???? You guys r monsters.

In answer to your question Energy, it would be fine if you feel confident you can learn a new skill while being in a battle at the same time. Doing this as a bb would give you more time to get to grips with the process without the pressure of a deadline, so you'd get more from it that way.

  • How to write an effective comic script
  • Editing skills required for visual storytelling
  • The Pros of using a scripted process

You can be:

  • Any level artist or writer
  • Willing to try a new process to improve storytelling
  • With a basic idea of the story you want to tell
  • With a character/characters in mind
  • Can use Void characters, writers can have their own oc or permission to use pre existing Void characters
  • Writers do not have to have a character on the site. The idea is to get you creating working scripts artists will want to bring to life
  • Incubator peeps welcome!

You'll get a working script ready to go. Ideally 3-5 pages, 10 complete max. You’ll get support and advice on how to get from your script to a finished product.
