    Default Anti-Heroes: Passing the Torch

    I don't really have a clue where I should be posting this. I know this is about my webcomic, but I'd prefer to try and get some of the traffic from the Fancomic sub-forum rather than stuffing this away into the Webcomic corner. That and it sort of qualifies as an art contest of sorts. If a mod feels otherwise, then I suppose I can live with it being moved.

    As you may or may not know, I'm quitting Anti-Heroes. I held a vote to see what the fate of the comic would be, and it comes as no real surprise to me that the fans want the comic to continue, even if it's under a different artist. Which is why I've come here. This forum was where I started Anti-Heroes, so it seems appropriate that it be the same place I leave it. But in any event, I'll get to the point.

    I'm looking for a replacement artist and writer for Anti-Heroes. Someone who has a comfortable ability with Inkscape and/or Illustrator who can more or less reproduce the same style I had. I don't expect a perfect match, however. Just be prepared to be endlessly compared by the fanbase to my own work, whether it be good or bad. So make sure you put effort into it.

    If you're interested in volunteering for the job, then go ahead and post some relevant art samples. I will make the ultimate decision after an indeterminate period of time and proceed to fill said person in with all the comic details. This includes all future plot developments, character backstories, etc. You will also gain administrative access to the website, where you will be able to freely post and edit comics. I'll attempt to stay on as a creative consultant, but all artwork and writing will still have to be handled by whomever I choose as a replacement. In other words, if you don't want the responsibility, then don't apply.


    So, anyone interested?

    Awww. I just discovered it two weeks ago too. WHY MUST EVERYTHING I LOVE DIE AT MY TOUCH!?

    Err, I mean...

    So, if you find an artist whose not comfortable scripting, I'd be happy to do a collab and take over the writing and scripting duties. Of course, I would assume you have a plot outline stating where the comic is going, and things that are going to happen, in at least broad terms, yes?

    This is a surprise. I mean, apart from your quitting, I don't think I've seen anyone "passing the torch" for something like this before.

    If you had started this thread in about a year I would have offered. Okay, I would have considered offering, spent far too long freaking out over whether I could handle it, and had about a 30% chance of actually posting. But right now college so it's moot.

    In the comments section he put it to the vote whether he did an info dump of the remaining story or passed it on to someone else. Overwhelming majority voted option 2, and those damnable trolls meant he couldn't do both (which is a shame because I wanted to know how it ended).

    If my art didn't suck and if I had HALF the willpower to make comics as I did once a while ago, I would totally sign up for this. It'd be like being asked to write Batman. Or something you love and it equally as cool. YOU would have control over it! I totally would've done this once...

    Only I can't do it anymore. I know I would be terrible for the job.

    Yeah, I read. But how often would option 2 even be suggested?

    I have never done an actual comic. At most, group shots. And they're usually shown from the front.

    I'm pretty interested in this project. I've been (quietly) following Anti-Heroes since its beginning.

    Since you probably don't know much about me, I'm going to introduce myself. I'm Mad Mask and I'm primarily known for my trademark shaded OotS-style. You can see some comics here and here, and a few characters in this post, most from Avatar Battle Royale, where I tested the mettle of my artistic and writing skills for almost four years.

    As you can also see, I'm used to shading, but I am willing to compromise this. Otherwise, I have no problem emulating any kind of art style. I can have a few fan-art snippets of Anti-Heroes ready in the next two days.

    Not necessarily. You're probably talking about the Future Imperfect intro, right? It was 7 comics that I did in the space of about a month. 7 comics/month = 1.75 comics/week, which is very respectable. The impression was simply acerbated due to the fact that I did it alone, while traditional ABR is a collaborative webcomic that allows a very fast pace due to the high number of participants.

    EDIT: You can also take note at Planum Commedia, my previous webcomic in which I maintained an average of 2.5 comics/week for most of its run.

    Hell, I craft webcomic plots in my head before drawing the characters.

    And then I don't post them.

    But me? Draw that? My backgrounds are too bleh to work for that. I could work with August or Prime pretty well though.

    After all, I annoy Prime often enough as it is.


    EDIT: And if August did the comic I would re-read the hell out of it. His avatars and detail are epic.

    First off, its sad to see your webcomic end. I had a comic of about 12 strips in length, and for one 20x longer than mine, its sad to see something that lasted so long to end. I even gave your webcomic a cameo way back when. Haha.

    In any case, if you want the art style to be preserved, you can send your .svg files to the next artist with the templates for the characters. But then it's also a lost of your artistic work/integrity and I'll understand that. However, it would speed up the transition process as well and get your webcomic back on its feet sooner. That way, the new artist doesn't need to redraw every single character and the trademark expressions. But since you are basically passing down the entire story, plot, character developments, the .svg or whatever files doesn't seem like much of a jump.

    Just an idea.

    I think your shaded style would be great for the somewhat darker atmosphere of Anti-heroes. Can you do comedy?

    Here's my personal interpretation of the Anti-Heroes. They've been pretty fun to draw, especially Keriss and Lana. For some reason, Kaal turned out to be fat, and Aldran seems a bit feminine (possibly due to the torn sleeves).

    Thanks. Of course I can do comedy. My early comics were very humour-driven, although recently I've been mainly attracted by black and/or british comedy.

    I think you could do with toning down the shading a ways there Mask, make it more subtle than overt, in order to avoid deviating too far from the original interpretation.

    I'd personally be happy to take on another storyline, but if I did it would need to be put on hold until the end of Remember Book 5 before I could actually produce work on it (Even then likely by releasing a page from two different stories each week, rather than dedicating Remember to anti-Heroes)

    It's a personal interpretation, as I said before. I will indubitably make a more faithful version, or maybe a dozen. I like experimenting.

    I agree that I've been excessive on the faces, and I have changed that. I'm also studying a few art books to make my clothing folds more realistic. The over-the-top shading probably is a holder-over from the days it was the only way for me to cover my artistic deficits.

    I'll be trying to create a minimalistic, covert type of shading. Less is more, and a silhouette can be worth the most detailed human portrait.

    EDIT: I do not take offence to criticism, for it is the bread-and-butter of any artist. People telling me "You suck!" only makes me want to improve further in order to prove them wrong.
