    Red face Create a comicbook in a day

    Hi, guys,



    Tomorrow, monday, Iīm gonna make an experiment Iīve been thinking about for YEARS.

    I wanna pull one of those make a comic book 22 pages/day marathon thingies.

    Never done any of those and to be honest, I donīt know if I even can.
    My record speed to this day was 11 sketched pages in 24 hours.



    Only thing I know is I want to see if I can. tell a 22-page story in 24 hours. And since this is just a pretext to have fun, Iīm gonna be drawing what i like best: A humongously awesome superheroine kicking some serious derričre.



    If thereīs anything youīd like to see in there, like maybe a gorilla dressed in a kilt playing hopscotch, well, nowīs the time to yell.



    Hereīs what Iīve got right now:

    Dude, haven't seen you here in a while, good to see you haven't slipped off the face of the earth

    Now I'm pumped for tommorow Hopefully there'll be a nice turnout to see this happen. Are you going to post each page as you finish, or are you going to take a massive art dump at the end of the day?

    What I want to see? Hmmm... if possible, her fighting against/with a norse warrior superhero, with appropriately norse superpowers based on norse myth. If that's asking too much, then a sidekick monkey

    Can't wait to see what happens tommorow

    A norse hero... well, I wasn+īt planning to have her teaming up since group shots are terribly time consuming (Iīm gonna be racing the clock, trying to create a page every 30-40 minutes).

    How about a norse baddie?

    And dinossaurs, got it!
    .... One can never go wrong with dinossaurs

    Iīm planning to start the marathon at 15:00 or 16:00 PM GMT, with page uploads every 40 minutes. No script, Iīm gonna be riding my inspiration and going wherever she takes me with only the suggestions from you guys as guidelines.

    Norse baddie works fine, like I said fighting with or against.

    Other than that, go nuts. I'd give you some story ideas too, but I think it would be better (and more fun) if you do your own thing. I was never too good at stories anyways

    Zombies and dinosaurs and a superheroine... oh my...

    wondering what kinds of weapons/powers she'll have -- force field, energy blasts, supercharged wip, telepathy or leather clad Trinity-like kickass skills.

    Cant wait to see where this goes!

    Just for anyone who wasn't around at the time, this is why I'm pumped for tommorow.

    EDIT: not that I expect the quality to be as high as when you pump out a page every 30-40 minutes, but still

    Hey, guys, thanks for the posts and suggestions.

    Monday has arrived and itīs time to get this party started.

    First, hereīs a collection of all the suggestions I received across the web:

    1) a gorilla in a kilt jumping rope

    2) FIRE!!

    3) Superheroine vs. Sho' nuff of The Last Dragon.

    4) Misty Knight, Colleen Wong, Black Cat and Tarantula fighting a giant tentacle monster

    5) Captain Planet as an old homeless sage-type dude, drinking his life away and constantly muttering nonsense such as "the power is YOURS!"

    6) 50's sci-fi

    7) black on black violence

    8) the gorilla in the kilt should be doing something EEEVILLLL

    9) a villainess

    10) A moustache twirling villain.

    11) a mallet

    12) A billboard that says "Daffy Duck is the guru of all wisdom"

    13) a horse riding canadian mountie named Dudley

    14) someone use a potato as a projectile weapon

    15) a horse riding canadian mountie named Dudley

    16) A midget throwing a chair at a normal-sized person!

    17) a ferocious killer alien snail with some big, badass guns a blazing. ...and with an army of little snails, wielding cannons

    18) the little monkey from Pirates of the Carribean

    19) the name DubipR

    20) A fortune teller

    21) superheroine beating up some kind of mythic, medusa-like bad girl... all fangs, sharp finger nails and writhing hair

    22) Throw in a succubus or two

    23) Axe wielding midgets

    24) Jewish Pirates. Neurotic New York type jews, like Woody Allen. But they're pirates

    25) a Shoryuken (the flaming uppercut from the Street Fighter series)

    26) a norse-inspired supervillain/hero

    27) zombies riding on dinossaurs

    28) Kirby Dots

    29) Armoured Gorillas and The Harlem Globetrotters

    30) a musician who uses music to fight evil.

    31) A zergling. A naked zergling

    As for the superheroine, these were the suggestions:

    Black haired, Asian (Lucy Liu style with the sleek long black hair).
    Make her something of a 'gadget person'

    Red haired Asian with freckles.

    Thigh high boots and sashes
    Itīs 8:00 am right now.
    Iīm gonna catch me some ZZs, digest the ideas in my sleep and weīll meet at 16:40 pm GMT with the first page upload.

    Let the insanity begin.

    At some point someone in the comic needs to make some bad hammer pun or reference as it is a staple in all American super-hero-type comics. (The pun/remark, not the hammer)

    Oh, and you spelled applause incorrectly. XD

    to myself I wouldnīt stoop down to doing splashpages but... Oh, well....



    Yes, I know romans took pride in their clean hairless faces,the gladius was a stabbing weapon and gladiatrixes fought topless but letīs call it artistic licensing,.

    Sorry about that, I kinda rushed in his face.

    Enters the pervo



    Iīm not being coy.
    The only reason why I havenīt shown her face yet is because I havenīt come up with one. :p
    I wanted to use the asian brunette/redheaded Lucy Liu lookalike as originally suggested but I canīt for the life of me see an asian gladiatrix in ancient imperial Rome.

    Yeah, I think that trying to argue about a redheaded asian gladiatrix in ancient Rome when weīre in a comic with giant armoured gorillas wearing kilts is the epythome on nonsense
