what is this?

Ichneumon
2009-11-21, 03:03 AM
what is this?

People submit their web/fan comic and Onasuma assigns somebody's web comic in secret to somebody else and he/she needs to make a fan update for that comic in their own style, or something like that.

Green-Shirt Q
2009-11-21, 08:42 AM
Yo, is there a ten comic limit this time around?

That would be a shame for me, as I couldn't enter either of my current comics. The Q's Comic Review only has nine, and Smooth Moves only has five.

I guess I could just enter The Q's Comic Review next week.

Oh, and Onasuma? You should probably mention the ten comic limit if it exists.

Feeling better (thanks for concern. It was nothing serious, but head injurys always have that "Oh sweet mercy its been bleeding for 4 hours why wont it stop" effect).

Questions:

Alarra: Its a thread we run 4 times a year (give or take) where us web comic artists trade some art with each other.

The Q: The 10 comic limit is in place. However, if you have other comics with >10 they count towards this whole thing.

Ichneumon
2009-11-23, 01:26 PM
Oh, I was also wondering, what are the rules/guidelines about what kind of a fan comic you should make? For example, should I make a comic in my own style (pawns etcs) for the comic in question or how?

Erhm, what I think you should do is just crossover Smooth Moves instead of using your Review comics.

Well, I entered my The Q's Comic Review into this rather then Smooth Moves, so I think it makes the most sense to do a guest comic with that instead.

Plus, Smooth Moves has just started. I haven't even brought out the main characters or setting yet!

I know I make a strip for them. I just was going to do a review for them.

I thought that was up to me what I do.

I suppose I could probably try and do something like that. Although with the comic I've entered that may be a little difficult.

I know!

Why don't you just make a comic where you're "about" to review it and the guy comes in and says he hasn't given you permission andbrings in Roland and stuff like that.

It's an idea.

As I understand it, you are completely free to do whatever you want, whether or not the comic creator in question will accept it as cannon, is something entirely different and depends on the comic and content in question I guess.

The downside to this ban is the fact that it is finals week. Had *I* not got a once in a life time chance, I wouldn't have made my comic online. Maybe you should allow a one week late entry period to allow those who are locked away from their computers by their parents due to finals a chance to finish their work.

If the memo was in your signature, maybe more people would know. :smallwink:
Then again, you do have a comic that shows you as a teenage kid, so I guess it's not like you're not putting it out there.

No, the deadline to get them in was the 20th - this gives time to sort out issues with people not drawing stuff.

Here is the list of who has done their comic on time:

Fayte Graydon
Silver Raptor
Ichneumon
Haruki-kun
The Q
Xartyve2
The randomiser
Emerald Phoenix
MadMask

This means the following people have failed:
Hacktor
Someonenonotyou
Elrond
Squark

If anyone wishes to withhold their work from anyone on that list, PM me and say. If anyone wishes to draw a comic for one of the people who now wont be getting one, PM me and say.

Just going to say to the 4 of you who didnt manage to get it in (bar maybe Hacktor, he at least had the guts to explain), Im really dissapointed. Four people? The worst we've had before was two. I hope you all know that you RUINED christmas.

That's a bit HARSH don't you think... I can't speak for others but I think hardware reasons can be excused (especially since I promised to do the fan comic before 23). Really now... statements like that make me ask why you're the one hosting this after all... you make this look like a day-job rather than a present.

If we're doing nothing else than trading fan comics for fan comics i'd rather not participate. Stop labeling it as a Secret Santa thing at least and call it what it actually is. I think this started out as a nice thing several years ago but somehow it lost the Christmas spirit.

I'm nothing if not disappointed. :smallfrown:

YOU get a free guest comic while disappointing somebody else expecting a guest comic (probably, unless you get somebody who also doesn't do it) and then YOU get disappointed?! :smallsigh:

Dude, Christmas Spirit isn't "we don't care if you screw somebody else out of their present"! Particularly when they have been working on theirs for quite some time. I'd be pretty cheezed if I didn't get a guest comic after working so hard, and last time I DIDN'T until a while after. It's frustrating, see?

Ichneumon
2009-12-20, 03:44 PM
@Onasuma: I know this is a bit more of a job, but could you post all the present comics in the appropriate threads? For example, the comic that was made for Q in Q's comic thread etc? Or are you just going to post them here?

About the people not having done it.

Well, the thing is, it's understandable if you can't do it, sometimes there are things that are out of your control. But you've had almost a month and drawing a comic doesnt take long, maybe a few hours max. The thing is, we all get a present, like Q said, and when you're not making one it means that somebody else doesn't get one, while they still likely put all the effort in it.

Now, I do get the idea that Onasuma is having a hard job organising these things, so I hereby offer to do it instead of him or to help him next time. I guess the next one will be somewhere around easter?

onasuma
2009-12-20, 03:46 PM
Yeah, basically what Q said. People put time into these to make them worth while. If some other people cant even be bothered to PM me a reason why they havent done what they promised, I, for one, dont think they deserve their own preasent and should be publically humiliated. You had a freakin month, 1/12th of a year, 25/19971th of a males life. If you cant find a few hours in that time to do something you said you'd do for someone else, well then Im sorry I wasted your time by organising this whole thing.

EDITS:

@ Hacktor: You have to remember, Im not getting anything out of this one and its not me whos going to not get a comic due to someone not having drawn it. Im pissed off because some people who entered my little deal here wont be getting anything out of it.

@ Inc: Kind offer. Expect to hear from me some time around easter.

Im so sorry i didn't get in on time but i just sent it to you

Hacktor
2009-12-21, 02:01 AM
The only thing I'm disappointed about is Onasuma's reaction and attempt at public humiliation. What do you think this kind of behavior will tell the people that were unsure weather to enter or not... do you think the prospect of being yelled at is nice or encouraging?

Also, I was under the impression that Christmas is on the 25th not 20th... why would you set the deadline then?.

Also Also, I am offering to still do it now that I can. Why won't you let me?
[to Quote Onasuma] "No, the deadline to get them in was the 20th - this gives time to sort out issues with people not drawing stuff." What issues? I'm offering to send it in... late, isn't this an issue? sort it out, accept my gueststrip.

Also Also Also, if you are under the impression that people did not draw theirs ON PURPOSE {see theQ's "we don't care if you screw somebody else out of their present"} you are mistaken. This whole thing was suppose to be a nice thing we did for one another, no-one signed up just to screw-over other people.

Also Also. ..etc ....Onasuma and TheQ I don't know n'or do I care how old you are but your responses seem very Immature. Maybe If you allow people the chance to make amends (even of late) and you don't bar others from the competition next year for being late you might get more people signing up and a nicer feeling to the whole thing.

Either way... this is the LAST year I participate in the Web comic Secret Santa thing, the best gift of all is to give so I advise you all (as will I) next year to try making guest strips for people without expecting anything in return. Those of you that can't see that I'm afraid you don't know what Christmas is all about.

X2
2009-12-21, 02:26 AM
It's a little naive to think everyone here entered this thing to be nice.

I for one wanted to see someones interpetation of my comic. Selfish? Maybe... but can you see how dissapointed I'd be to not get the comic?

Hacktor
2009-12-21, 02:54 AM
p.s. Mine is 90% done and as I understand it someonenonotyou already sent his in quote "Im so sorry i didn't get in on time but i just sent it to you"

So 2 people were only a few hours late and they get ridiculed... maybe it's a little bit naive to think those were the reasons people joined... but in that case I suggest a new thread called "Fan-comic for Fan-comic" and dropping the secret Santa facade.

I'm still waiting for onasuma to agree to me sending it in late.

onasuma
2009-12-21, 03:47 AM
My attempts at ridicule may seem harsh, but I honestly believe its the best way to get things done. This way, people who dont think they should enter, wont and we'll have a reliable lot of people doing strips.

Also, I never said I wouldnt accept strips late. The "issues and stuff" is the fact that if people dont get them in by the 20th, I have time to go out and find people to draw for them.

Yeah, I offered to do one extra for someone who didn't get one. It seems the person who got you did it and handed it in after I made it.

I think that that was admin on my end.

Q drew a comic for randomiser, but not for "Well, that was unexpected" so it turned up as not having been done on my list.

Technically, it is for WTwU, because The Major's Arsenal is an extension of WTwU. :smalltongue:

By the way, Lucrid has darker hair. Remember?

Why, thank you! :smallbiggrin:

I know. But his hair is supposed to match Serrin's so...
