    Default Redemption - A fan comic (page 1 posted!)





    Page 1

    What is Redemption?

    Redemption is a fancomic (for OOTS) based on the backstory I wrote for that one badass bandana'd paladin (see him here, in the third panel of the second strip). It follows the adventures of Remmin, as I call him, his friend Katsu, and his girlfriend Aoi. The comic will be posted page-by-page as I complete it, but please do not treat it like a webcomic. I have no real update schedule except for the estimated rate at which I complete it. For the most part, it will follow the general format of regular OOTS, though it may stray from that. The artwork is intended to be similar to if not an exact imitation of Rich Burlew's art style in OOTS.

    Someone asked for banners, so I went on a spree.

    Feel free to use these. Just remove the spaces in the code and it will work.

    Here's a large one:

    Your art is exceptional. Paladin Redemption stories are among my favourite in the D&D Genre. I look forward to what you come up with.

    And if you need/would like the services of a writer for your dialogue/backstory/plot-lines, I would be honoured to assist you...

    The fading out in the beginning is very cool. However, Rich generally keeps a strict watch on his artwork, so if that is the actual Shojo death pic, you might be in trouble. If that's a recreated version, you're in the clear.

    That certainly looks very interesting. It looks very close to the Giant's style, especially the text bubbles and colours.
    However, what puts me off is the length of the arm holding the katana.

    For Bandana Guy's name, how about "Batosuke Suichin". (bat-O-scay / SOO-cheen)

    >_>
    <_<

    I just wrote the first thing that came to mind, and I doubt it means anything in Japanese.

    Oh, and I checked; it isn't the exact same as the Shojo death pic.
    The neurotypical mind is a mystery that will always elude me.

    Nope, it's not the original Shojo pic, although it was wicked hard to recreate.

    As for story, I think I've got it all figured out, but I appreciate the offer.

    For the name, I actually was looking for something a bit simpler, like 'Daigo'. I really wish that wasn't taken, because it's perfect.

    What what? I wanna see? Oh right, but it doesn't work for me.

    Can I find it anywhere else perhaps so I can come back here and comment on it?


    Edit: Nevermind I can see it. Awesome

    Hmm.

    Might want to talk with The Giant or at least someone with authority concerning this. Don't want to say something that's outright untrue, or clashes with his world.

    Yup. I'm going to be very, very careful. I'm not going to have any of his characters be part of the story, and the most they might do is speak one line. The exception is where I know a confliction is extremely unlikely, like Shojo's part in the cover page/basic premise. That's the only example I can think of of tying in with Rich's storylines.

    How do you guys think I should post this? I'm thinking the cover page, then each page in its own spoiler tag.

    I'm honestly surprised there hasn't been a fan-comic before this.

    You are entrusted with revealing to the world the awesome bad-arseness of the Bandana Paladin (Bandin) Please give us the good stuff.
    I reserved the right to be wrong. I just try not to exercise it.

    Providing that's it's fine with Rich, I say go for it. Right now I'm more interested in the Sapphire Guard than in the OOTS. Especially since the comic is updating irregularly and this should satisfy my OOTS fix.

    Behind the Name is a good site when you're looking for names to give to your characters. It has all kinds of names in it's database, what they mean and are they for men, women or both.
    Here's Japanese names!


    I've been thinking about making a fancomic myself, but I my knowledge about D&D is poor and thought it the idea would be crushed by the folks at the forums/Rich. Guess I was wrong... Hope you'll manage to do this!

    (and a small suggestion for your comic... I think this should be a different bandana -paladin, because if we like the character, it's really sad to know he'll be killed as one of the crowd :( )

    Wow! That site is a godsend! Throwing up a cast page for now, more characters may be added later.

    I've been thinking about the tone for the comic, and I decided I was going to go less with humor and more with actual storyline. Don't get me wrong, though, there will be lighthearted bits.

    Also, this will likely take me quite a long time. I take a long time to draw, mostly.

    I'm most of the way through the first page, so it should be up tonight or tomorrow.

    P.S. It's going to be that paladin, for exactly that reason.

    Given the "quiet and reserved" trait of Katsu, shouldn't his pic have a frown or at most a smirk?

    I draw with Flash CS3.

    No, the picture correctly portrays his character, I messed up with the wording. I'll fix that.

    That reminds me. Until I actually start posting strips, things are subject to change.

    This might turn out very well, I would ask the Giants permission before going any further but if you stick to it and get his permission it could turn out fantastic!

    I always liked Remmin and thought he could have a cool back-story if someone took the time and encourage you to continue.
