Guybrush20X6
Level 30 Psychiatry has remained dormant for quite some time with artists leaving and/or dealing with personal issues so we're now looking for someone new to do the line art on a bi-weekly, perhaps weekly basis.

Essentials
-works in a Photoshop friendly format
-has Dropbox
-doesn't draw Gardevoir with breasts

Only the line art is needed. Color and word-bubbles are handled separately.

We've had your support for so long. I feel bad asking you for more but it's the only option left. Even if you don't think you have any art skills, try passing the message on. We need you now more than ever. I look forward to working with whoever signs up.

BTW, that's me who did the art for the poster.

hiii. this is drykirby (in case you don't remember, the old every-other-week artist). i guess i should explain what was going on when i suddenly disappeared

basically, even when i was still working on the comic i was pretty bad at meeting deadlines and getting things in on time. and even then, when i finished some lineart and turned it in, i just wasn't satisfied with the work i had finished, y'know? i wanted to improve my own art, on my own time

at the same time, i was trying to figure out trying to figure out my gender and identity. i'm a girl and my name is serena. with me trying to sort that out on top of my lack of self-confidence, i decided juggling a twice-a-week comic would be a bit too much for me, so i just stopped making comics. in hindsight i really should've let everyone know when i left, but here i am now i guess

all that makes it sound more harrowing than it really was, i guess. i don't think i'm going to go back to making comics, but i'm feeling really nice and my art has improved a lot. i hope whoever works on the art does a fantastic job, and i hope everyone here (especially giga) will be happy and continue working to their goals

to end this off here's an art comparison of a pic from around the time i was doing level 30, and a similar pic i drew about two weeks ago





if you want to keep up with me, i have a twitter and a tumblr, both at dokodonmystery. thank you all!

Hope you find someone! I'd like to help if I wasn't busy with my own comic...

I'm tempted to offer help even though I have a few webcomics of my own to work on...

What if I offered to help out temporarily til you can find a permanent line artist? At least the comic would be regularly updating til then.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
I wouldn't want anyone else's comics to fall behind on my behalf. We could use a guest comic though.
MizuNoRyuu edit delete reply
MizuNoRyuu
XD Thanks for thinking about me.

Sketching it with a provided script/storyboard would be simple, and as a gag comic, the art is minimalistic.

I've wanted to make a guest comic for the longest time but I dunno how to do the right punchline/gag with it. XD

Did you draw this Guybrush?

Wait a minute you said you did this in your comment *facepalm* I really need to read ahead before I comment.

First off, I would like to say I have been a huge fan of your comic for about a year and a half now, and I love everything about it! Second, may I make a suggestion? If you are looking for a new line artist, I propose doing what Lego does when they hire people: make it a contest of sorts. Post a prototype script/idea for a comic, and let people try to draw for it. This way more people will apply for the job, and you will have options for who you want as an artist! I would audition myself, but I have no drawing software and my skills are still developing...
JokerJay (Guest) edit delete reply
My skills are still developing too and while I have dabbled a bit with Photoshop because of my Texture Techniques and Digital Imaging classes. I don't have it on my PC.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
I don't think we have nearly the same pull that Lego does so I don't think a contest would work. But to those of you who'd be interested but don't have the software, here's a free open source graphics program called GIMP. Unfortunate acronym aside, it's similar to photoshop and it's what I use when adding the text.
KaizaPhoenix (Guest) edit delete reply
If you're still looking for someone to do line art, I might be available for the job. I've been considering working on a webcomic, but I've never had anyone to work with. If you need sample of some art I've done, I can send you some of my work (I haven't set up a portfolio or anything, but I can send you art without issue).

My e-mail address is phoenixneo1630@gmail.com if you wish to contact me.

I can do a guest comic, but that's all. I can't really stay devoted to a project...

Guybrush20X6
I'd certainly appreciate it. If you need a script to work with I can send you some.
Alhambra93 edit delete reply
Please delete my guest post. I can't do the art, and I don't want my email out there.

Taken care of, and thank you.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
Is this a paid gig?
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
I nearly completely obliterated my bank balance with Kirby amiibo so outside of ad revenue, it's not a paid thing. Level 30 Psychiatry is a passion project.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
Fair enough. Thanks for being honest. (And LOL at "Kirby amiibo.") ^_^
GardeBlaze (Guest) edit delete reply
If I could draw I'd help, but I can't. I'll help spread the word however. The show must go on!
MyNameIsNull (Guest) edit delete reply
First of all, my normal screen name is not "MyNameIsNull", but I chose my old screen name when I was a little kid, not knowing that it would offend anyone. (It had "pot" as part of it, I didn't know what drugs were at the time). With that said, I do believe I have the creative capacity, some good artistic skills, and a computer. All I need is a good program to draw with because at the time my best is paint.net. If you could tell me that, I could do it for free, because I've seen the work posted and I'd be honored.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Well the program I use is a free open source graphics program called GIMP, hat functions similarly to Photoshop. It takes some getting used to, especially if you're more used to paint but it's got a lot of things you can't do in Paint like different layers and the like. Download it and give it a shot.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Thanks Guybrush. Just heard of you a day ago, but you seem like a pretty nice guy.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I can't download GIMP before school, I'll do it after. So, in like about 8 1/2 hours. I will set an alarm, though, so I don't miss something I really want.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
2 things guybrush: #1 is that yes, it is very different. #2 is that I'll draw better w/ a script. so if you could e-mail me one, it'd be perfect.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
It's a bit late in my part of the world so I'll send you a PM first thing in the morning. I have a lot of scripts to choose from.
Guest (Guest) edit delete reply
thanks! ive already worked out my first digital concept, which is alot like the Dr. Gardevoir form the characters part of the site, but at a different angle and a different style. I airbrushed her hair and chest horn, to make them seem more alive. thats all I have for now. good night!

Alright, GIMP is downloaded. But now a piece bad of news; Either my voice is changing or I'm losing it, cuz it hurts, and sounds like a goose dying and giving birth simutaneously.
Dinohunter9 (Guest) edit delete reply
Hi there! I'm interested in being the line artist for the comic.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
That's great! I've already been creating some. Let me tell you, it's hard. At least for my abilities. I'm good at coloring and writing, but it's always good to accept a challenge. Guybrush told me to use GIMP, and you can find the link to it in 2 places in this comment section. And good luck!
Dinohunter9 edit delete reply
Dinohunter9
Hi again! I realized I should probably make an actual account for the sake of contact. Like I said, I'm interested in being the new line artist. I have experience with Adobe Photoshop and I own a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9. Thank you!
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Okay, here is the link to the program like photoshop called GIMP. I guess it works better than photoshop, because that's what they recommended for me to use. https://www.gimp.org/
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
It's the old bus paradox, wait ages for one and then two show up at once. Looks like it goes for artists too :)

I'm glad to hear you are intrested. Photoshop works just as well as GIMP for the purposes of comic work here. I use GIMP because it's free but if you want to give it a shot and see if it works better for you than Elements go ahead.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Haha I guess so. By the way, I figured out that your day ends 4 hours earlier than mine. So if you got me the script at, 7 in your time, persay, I'd have 8 hours to work on it. Just something I found out.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Have you checked your private messages? You'll find them on the main Comic Fury page.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I didn't check. I'll go right now. Thanks!
Dinohunter9 edit delete reply
Dinohunter9
Yeah, lol. I actually saw this page a few days ago when I came to check to see if the comic updated, but I was contemplating it for a few days. I'll likely stick with Photoshop, since it's what I'm familiar with.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Just saw this post. Funny story, before I had started coming to this site, I was lookin at Pokemon memes. I saw this a comic, and it peaked my interests, so I clicked on and found this awesome website. Also, I hope you can do this weeks comic, if Guybrush has already seen you a script. (There is one I can't do, cuz I'm bad at white mage at this time.) anyway, good luck with photoshop!
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Hey Hunter, I know the art's important, but we need to be able to contact you. Sorry if I sound a bit harsh, it's just important that we can talk if we collab or something. Thanks! To the people that aren't hunter, I'm REALLY close to being finished. So check back on Sunday.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
so guybrush, i was lookin through some comics, and i found the surgeon sim one. i was lookin through the authors comments, and saw on Oct 6th 2014, 404 said he'd be returning in about 2 years. If he was correct, he should be back in a couple of months (or is he already back? i havent seen a lot of recent comics).
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
I just hope he still remembers his password and at least pops in to say hi.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
if he handles his passwords like almost everyone I know, there's no need to worry about that. I just hope that he remembers the comic itself.
Dagon (Guest) edit delete reply
Welp... Good thing he's not me...
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Usin a guest account cuz you forgot your password? I guess I'm lucky, I've only ever used 4 passwords.
Alhambra93 (Guest) edit delete reply
(Not the sort of thing to share with the comments section...)
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
XD it's okay, I've never and will never tell anyone else my passwords, besides my google account with my fam. The only time I've been hacked, it was just minecraft. I got that sorted out in 4 days anyway. But thanks for being concerned!
Drackon edit delete reply
Nah, but I did forget my college log in for a good year plus.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Oh, I kinda know the feeling. My school sets passwords all the time, so I usually can't get into whatever website they have us go on. It's torture, I tell you. TORTURE! Not much different from school itself, though...
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Maybe 404 forgot about level 30. Ah well, he might remember, or ( the situation I hope is happening) he just is still on his journey.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Uh, just droppin in to say "Hi!" real quick. Hi!
On a more serious note, I couldn't get my friend (man, can't remember if I told you guys about her) to do the art. She says she's like to stick to her own thing. Honestly, though, every artist that doesn't draw military stuff I know is a girl. Although, where I live, if you're a guy, you're smart/very talented or you play American Football. There's no in-between. Ever.

Edit: If you plan to do the lineart, it can be very stressful, especially if you don't know your way around your art editor. If you download GIMP, and need to learn some basics, I can help out there. Just don't expect anything super advanced, I've only been working on it since Saturday.
Alhambra93 (Guest) edit delete reply
I thought you were doing the lineart, Null? Is there something I missed?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
this is true, Alhambra, but I was wondering if she could lend Guybrush a hand as well. And no, there is nothing you missed. Anyways, i was curious to see if there was anyone else who said they could (I should be doing it right now ^-^) but I have the attention span of a 4 year old sometimes, which i guess explains why I play more shooters than any other genre. But i am doing the lineart still, don't worry :)
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
okay, now my avatar is uploaded! yay! now i can go do something else, like... lineart (WHOOSH!)
Jim VonHelterbrand (Guest) edit delete reply
I have a few years Design experience, I'd love to.
If the position isn't yet filled I just need means of contact.

I'd just need some specs so I can get thumbnails started. would you like a realism style, a chibi style, pixel, abstract, exaggerated.... given the nature of planning a replacement artist we'd have to take a few weeks to prep of course. I can send my resume so you can be assured quality.
Jim VonHelterbrand edit delete reply
There we are, I have an account set. Anyway, as I stated I have a fair amount of experience and I gaurentee quality. As someone who not only has a passion for design and a dream for psychology myself such a position would be quite delightful to me. It would mean quite a lot to be able to help work with something like this.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Hey Jim, that's great! Of course Guybrush could use some extra hands. It's a comic style, if you look through the 179 strips (this and the Christmas sprite don't count, of course,) and quality is good too. In fact, one of the reasons I'm not done is that my drawings don't have enough details (and, because of my stupidity, I put the whole thing on one layer instead of at least two), so I have to completely remodel. If you have photoshop, great, but if you don't, you might want to download GIMP. I'm sure you've probably seen a link above, and I've heard it works just as well as photoshop. Anyways, where I am, it's 5:50 and I need to get back to bed. I'm only up because I ran out of insulin in my insulin pump, and its blaring alarm woke me, so, I got that fixed, and now I'm going back to sleep. Cya tomorrow!
Jim VonHelterbrand edit delete reply
I'm gonna just ignore the fact that you just tried to tell me how to do something I was actually trained for professionally.

I understand you have no experience, but are you seriously thinking about doing lineart before you even create your thumbnails?
The comic director is gonna have to wait. I can't stand seeing people flop around like that. You'll need to get ahold of me on my Gmail so I can actually teach you to know what in bloods name you're doing.

Please don't take Null too hard. He's young and full of enthusiasm, learning by diving in and figuring out how to swim as he goes.

Did you get my PM?
Drackon edit delete reply
I use Adobe Illustrator in classes and life for 2d art. It's vector based mostly, while Photoshop is pixel based. That being said, I'd say to each their own, and recommend the typical format thus far of three panels per row, nor more than two to three rows, four if you use less detail and do a slight touchup later.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
I PM'd you my gmail so you can reach me there. Look forward to seeing what you've got.
Jim VonHelterbrand edit delete reply
I got the PM
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Jim, I just read what you said, and I realize I might have put it the wrong way. And as Guybrush said, I dove in and I'm just starting to learn how to swim. I'd say that the art that I make is pretty good, but it takes far too long to create, and I could definitely use professional advice. And especially with a lot less spare time on my hands (studying and music, and counseling) I could definitely use it. So I'll PM you shortly.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Oh no, life be gettin in ma way!!! I don't think I'll be able to make any lineart today, and I barely did anything yesterday.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Uh, anyone that's not Guybrush or DryKirby that can figure out which week my avatar is from, you get 5 bonus points.
Alhambra93 edit delete reply
I have it. It's Narrow Comfort zone, the panel after the "Wizard needs caffeine badly" Reference.

Let me guess, the points don't matter?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Yup, panel two in the narrow comfort zone, part of the girls day out arc, but without Roll and Gardevoir and the speech bubble. And the points are a boost in intelligence/work ethic, and I forgot to include it comes with a thumbs up. I would've waited to make one until after the comic, but I knew it wouldn't be out today like I wanted. I'll see if I can get two done by the end of the week, both are almost done anyway.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Oh, and by the way, two reasons I chose this picture explains what I need in life 1. Black Mage, cuz he da best, and 2. Energy/Motivation, I'm rather lazy. Good night, unless I get curious again.
Drackon edit delete reply
Well, there's always other mages and classes that have spells too for the first, and White Mages for the second. H331z, plz.
Drackon edit delete reply
You know, now that I think about it, I'm genuinely surprised no one has made a joke about Dragoons who use Jump versus Pokemon who use Fly.

Best of luck on your quest to find a new lineart artist, Guybrush! I can't wait to see this comic be revived after such a long hiatus!

I'd love to help, really, but I have never done any drawing on a computer before nor do I have photoshop. Sorry! Best of luck finding a new artist.
Guybrush20X6 edit delete reply
Guybrush20X6
Well if you want to give computer drawing a crack, here's a free open source graphics program called GIMP that functions like Photoshop.

Thanks for the best wishes.
Dagon (Guest) edit delete reply
Personally, I may have decent drawing ability, but besides the obvious problem of not owning the software, I'm also much better with coloring and ideas. The sad part of that is, the "idea" guy is far less likely to be hired over the "do it" guy. Plus, with various social issues, I'm pretty much stucj with YouTube and acting as viable careers for my social abilities, or math, science, and history (need to work on that last one though,) for acedemics. Better hope no one needs in depth formal reports.
Dagon (Guest) edit delete reply
Well, now that I just posted (yes, I know I can edit, I just thought this might work better for my own thoughts), I had a question about the comic itself. Do you guys ever reference the games as if they were fake and they knew it? That could open up whole new alleys and streets for comic material.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Well, I'm no expert, but from what I can tell from the many comics I've seen, I don't think they have. Although it's a pretty interesting concept. But when it comes to Dr. G comments, yeah, I think so.
Lazor Comfort (Guest) edit delete reply
Hello! Its great that you are back! But sorry I can't help you, I deal mostly in pixel art and I'm not good with stories... :/ well I hope you find a great artist for your webcomic!
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I hope I can handle replying to you right. Switching from pixel to comic is hard. I know you are good at it by the way, I've seen your Kirby.
But you can help us. Any friends you think that they'd be interested in, you could point em this way. If you got past the pixel barrier, you don't write the story. That's what guybrush I saw here for. Besides being the comic owner and all that. And the last point is thanks for being here during the hiatus. I promise it'll come to a halt as soon as someone (Dino or myself) gets done with the lineart
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Okay, I know some people have been wondering, (nothing goes here/Null), why haven't I seen a comic from you if you said you would do one? And I have a very good answer for that. I have a fear of overworking myself again. See, the first weekend I put myself to the project, I spent a good 19 hours on it. (To be continued, sorry Guybrush.)
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
The next day at school, I literally spent the day sleeping off my tiredness at the nurse. Even afterward, I hallucinated, couldn't do work or focus, and forgot what any language meant. So yeah, paranoia. As a short side note, also missed ComicCon. That's a bummer. Stan Lee was there, too. Ah well, there's always next year.
Lazor Comfort (Guest) edit delete reply
Yeah, my regular art is "kiddish" apparently, which is why I am doing pixel art. Might be a programmer as a side job soon. Good luck everyone! (Making games seems very fun! All you have to do is make a machine, give it orders, and show it what to do if so-so inputs these commands.. Etc. Have fun!
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Hehe, I know what you mean. I can't draw realistically to save my life. However, I can draw pixel, like you, and I can draw anime (DBZ style) and comical. Making a game takes time and effort. Getting those codes to run smoothly is tough. But I bet if you could do it, you might be able to make something better than Undertale. Anyway, good luck!

MyNameIsNull edit delete reply

You probably know this already, but I've found it easier to use a stencil and edit than using a PC and mouse the whole time. If you don't have a graphics tablet, you can use paper. But you already have a comic. So you probably knew that.

I live in east coast America, so it's 12:54 in my time zone. And comics are the only reason I've been getting so much sleep. (Watching SNL with my family, Lin-Miranda Manuels is hilarious) By the way, level 30 is the only webcomic I've read/seen. I know... Just what else lie upon comic fury. (Not that nudity offends me in any way, it's just, I prefer to not be perverted) Anyway, good night!

Xigirl edit delete reply
actually null, guybrush said that i wasnt what he was looking for.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Oh, well maybe guest comics could be fine, then. I think you definitely have potential. Of course, guybrush could send a script, or if you wanted me to, I could think something up. Maybe, if time comes, he can let you be an actual line artist, like Serena (when she was James) got selected. So, yeah.
Dagon (Guest) edit delete reply
Of course... The first thought in my head is Pokemon. Next thought, Confusion at the names. Then again, this could end up being a comic joke referencing this comment section, where one of them goes through transgender surgery, and becomes the other. Or, just reference the Pokemon beach episode where James wears inflatable breasts. Probably less potential to offend people then.

Took me a minute to realize everything you were talking about. Serena (Kirby) use to be James. I wasn't referencing to anything Pokemon, but I see where you could get it from. But I had emailed Xigirl something relating to one of those things, (the guest script I made up) and i thought some how you magically got it.
Drackon edit delete reply
Oh, man. I can't stop laughing at my own mistake. I didn't know until a few minutes ago that Kirby had a post up, and I didn't have any reference to what you guys were talking about. Still, that seems funny (weird kind) that I seemed to have gotten an email sent to someone else, as I (from what I can tell of your message, anyway,) referenced the script. I wish I could claim I got it, but it was just a lucky guess. Besides, I can't even search Google properly, much less code fast enough to hack in to an email account and leave with little to no trace I was there.

Hehe, it does seem a strange coincidence. Anyway, I decided to be the Black Mage for Halloween. It's so hard to find the things, though.

Guess I'm pretty lucky. I look and sound like Napoleon Dynamite, so all I need is to watch the movie, get the shirt, and go to school for the day.

There are no costumes for the person I look and sound like. If there were, I'd be game theory. Man, do I love it when numbers apply to video games!

I found the easiest way is to hit subscribe. It should tell you that you don't have an account. It'll take you to login, then hit register for free and from there it should be easy enough to figure out. Also, you won't be subscribed until you hit the button while you're logged in so make sure to hit it after you make an account.

I thought I say MyNameIsNull say that there are comics ready. Are they not being posted for a build-up, or what's going on there?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Not only is GB wanting to have a couple ready before we put any up, I've been hammering out my art style: redoing the same two over and over till they get good. Seriously, you should've seen the drastic difference between the first one I drew and the latest.
Drackon edit delete reply
Is there a way to post or link them, like an imgur link or something?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Well, there is, but I deleted the originals. Like, long ago, after my first redrawing. Sorry.

Guybrush20X6
Always try to keep originals. It's a good point of reference. DeviantArt doesn't do that "redraw years later" meme just to lord over their past selves.

WOW, has it been a long time. I've wanted to do a guest comic for ages. I might even be able to, but it may take a while (making art takes a long time for me-a single panel may take an hour!).
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Well, the art can be simple; even sprited. But the gag has to be funny in some aspect of video games, at least as far as I'm aware. It'd be great to have guest art, so that this comic updates for the first time in a while. Good luck!
Xigirl (Guest) edit delete reply
hey guys! I thought that maybe I could just have a guest comic(WARNING: IF I GET TO, I WILL EMAIL THE SCRIPT TO GUY, THEN PROBABLY MAKE A GIF ABOUT IT).
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
2 things. #1. I told him about the script. #2. I'm not so sure if a gif would be best. I mean, I think it'd be better in standard comic format, like level 30 has stuck to. (Not so sure on 2, but I'd wait for the Brush of Approval (Hehe I'm so punny))
Xigirl (Guest) edit delete reply
Hey and sorry but I meant that I would make a gif, BUT for YOU GUYS, I would do the regular comic format.

Also guybrush, why haven't you made a discord channel like I did? It would really help with readers(Coughh NEW ONES), and also get on track with the updates, tumblr, and so on.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Ok that sounds good.

Discord isn't the most popular thing out there, even with big multiplayer people. I'm not surprised if even a gamer says they're not familiar. But the comic is easy enough to understand; no external software needed to understand it.
Drackon edit delete reply
(if you don't want to read a long comment, here's the gist of it: I am a gamer, and I have never heard of Discord.) Worth noting. I should get to researching it, and I may in a little while.

Edit: I just realized there's really no need to explain why I call myself a gamer. This is a comic about games, and it's not like it's social media, where everything has to have a back story, or it's automatically fake.
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I guess I should clarify: discord is Skype but better in every way. So solo gamers won't get much if any use out of it.
Drackon edit delete reply
Ah. I see.

Hey guys! I hope everybody had as good a time as I did tonight! (For me it's Halloween) The Black Mage costume was the coolest on the street, and I just threw together some stuff around the house!

And right back at you, Xi ('cept you're not 13)
Drackon edit delete reply
So, if I may ask, Guybrush, why does the comment thing ask for a title, but never show it?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I can confidently answer that! The title is shown on the comic statistics for the authors and on the comic profile for everyone. It really is useless, though.
Drackon edit delete reply
Huh. So it isn't all that useful. Interesting. On an unrelated note, how many comics have you guys made, and how many are left? Also towards that count, what about guest comics?
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
I can only answer for myself, and I've remade about 5 each. How many have I finished? ... About 1/3 on a two panel and about 9/12 done with a 6 panel (see, I'm doing colors as well). I only know that Xi is doing a guest, and I hope someone else is. But if all goes to plan, I should be through with booth of the comics next Sunday and hopefully on a new one.

Edit: I don't know how many are left. I would say "Yeah, I only have one," but that'd be the half (actually the third) of it. See, I haven't looked at the Dropbox ones, and I no longer have Microsoft office, so I can't see what the only script left to do says.
Drackon edit delete reply
Wow. That must be a LOT of work. Something I realized as I was going to respond, these titles make me think of RPG character makers. Those names man, the NAMES... There should be a comic for that, like the authors come in and make jokes, or something to that effect. I honestly don't know how you would do it, but then again, they could be a random Skyrim Persona of themselves or something. (Sorry if that was a bad game reference)
MyNameIsNull edit delete reply
MyNameIsNull
Honestly, it isn't as much work for me as it is doing something good for the Internet. I like doing the art, where as most normally jobs involve terrible co-workers and bad bosses. And Skyrim is something a couple of people here play, including myself (played a bit today, actually,) and Guybrush has played enough to get at least into blackrearch. Let's just say Google can find anything. That might be a good idea, but I'm not the writer. I only turn words into pictures. I think that could make an excellent sprite, too, if we had someone else currently working on the team that we could get ahold of. Sadly, I've arrived at dark times; during hiatus. I have gotten tips from the others, though. Ya know, besides 404 and Kirby. I'm rambling on at this point. But hope this answers all those questions!

Edit: Are you playing pc? If so, there's a mod you can download that turns spiders into bears. It doesn't change the hitbox, though, but it's pretty comical. (Also a funny mod is posh mudcrabs, it had my ROFL)

Edit 2: Also another reason I do art is because it's the button holding together the jeans of life. Yes I mean jeans as in pants.

Edit 3: Anyone that needs to reach me for any reason (any GOOD reason, anyway,) can reach me here: sweetpot03@gmail.com
Drackon edit delete reply
Thanks for the info. I couldn't get past the biginning of Skyrim bexause of the spiders. I don't CARE how easy they are to kill, my arachnophobia is worse in games than real life. Also, I'd offer to help, but I don't have any of the programs, nor the time (thanks, school), and I also need to get my own life sorted out first. Besides, I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I'm usually not the guy who can get it done, I'm the guys who gives the ideas and plans. It's too bad the real world isn't built for introverts and lazy intellectuals. All I know I've got going for me is my pessimism.

EDIT: No, it was PS3, at a friend's cabin in the woods. We had to bring a hotspot to get WiFi.

EDIT2: I now realize after posting the above edit that I had it better than most horror films if that we actually THOUGHT of something in case of emergencies, AND we had WiFi, but no data. Not sure if I'm missing something, or I have all the necessary components to overcome the first of my Horror Camp challenges. The rest I'm gonna die in. Good thing I wasn't there for the zombie fest they crew went through earlier. I wouldn't last an hour.

I've got no experience and while I am an art student I'm not good at 2D art. Doing something like this could help me improve quite a bit and I enjoy this comic quite a lot, so if you're still looking for an artist, I can fill the part.
Drackon edit delete reply
Yeah, me too. I think I know at least two or three people who could do some great things here, but they, nor I, have the time. It's too bad, especially since their art is so good, and one of them can copy just about any style given a couple of hours, and I could use the practice. (Why do I get the feeling I've mentioned this before?)

Is there a way to contact the team directly? I'd love to contribute as a guest line artist, even if just for a few strips.

I avoided commenting as much as I could, but someone needs to answer questions.
@Guest (Guest) It's not dead, I'm just working things out, not only in art but in my personal life as well.
@random person (Guest) Only partially.
@Mana (Guest) I started like you, and it does help. You may want to set an account, though.
@Guest552 (Guest) You may want to set an account, then PM GB. As he's said before, he could use the help, and honestly so could I.

Hey guys, it's me. So, it's been a while since I first took up this "job", but I haven't yet put up artwork. And there are two good reasons that justify why I can't put any up:
1. My art is still just finding its potential
2. My life is getting in the way
1 is simply a matter of keeping to drawing. It's still gonna take time, though. 2 is something I've been able to talk to with the great Serena about, and she's helping me. GB does also know the situation I'm in, but I simply told him because I need a couple people to FINALLY be able to tell a secret to; get it off my chest. But at least for a couple more weeks, it's gonna stay secret. However, the big reveal will be my thousandth tweet on Twitter, a site I'm on a LOT. My Twitter is @MyNameIsNull_ if you want to see. I do use harsh language, but only when I want to get a point across, so not that often. I'll edit this post when the big tweet goes out, because you guys have a right to know. Anyway, hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving/ upcoming Thursday, and I'll see you later.
