Title: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service (Re-Opened)
Post by: Manimal on February 13, 2016, 11:40:29 PM
Ever wanted to give some random guy storyboards so he can remain productive...ever wanted to collab with a so called artist on a short 2-3 page bit of your story? Well Gosh Golly and Gee do I have the thing for you. Introducing...

The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
(http://i.imgur.com/wH08Ony.jpg)

For the low low price of $0.00 I am willing to collab with you and like make some fun comics. See my work here.
http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,16267.0.html

So before you get excited...before you let out a passive "okay" and draw out a storyboard for your vast fantasy story I want to lay down the law here, set a thing or two straight.

1. In my current artistic state I am much of a fantasy nor an action artist but I can try something to see if it works for me.. It's just not in my style but I am willing to try something provided I can have fun with it. So I'm not shutting the door on this as it can maybe help me become comfortable doing serious stuff. But it's good to try new things as well.

2. This isn't a super serious collab, but rather a fun thing. F is for freaks who do things together and in this case...well nobody is getting freaky, but I like to have fun with my comics. Not that I can't play it straight but comedy is what comes naturally to me. However I am willing to try to get serious. I would like to stick to my own art style but if you have something in mind, like you really love the look of...I dunno...Teekyuu...and you want your comic drawn like that, I can try. We'll see.

3. All I ask is that you draw a storyboard for me to go off and provide character and scene descriptions. This can be a thing for me and you and Zoboomafoo to learn from. This is all comic practice for me and maybe if you've never worked with someone before you can try it out and see how it goes, improve your storyboarding and and stuff like that. I don't care if you give me cave drawings from olden times, as long as I can understand the actions and have been given clear description I can DO IT! Well no promises, but I CAN TRY. Maybe or maybe not. I MIGHT VERY WELL TRY TO DO IT!

4. 3 pages at the most for the beginning. If I want to do more then you know but I want to do a variety of stuff so I would prefer 2-3 page things, atleast for now.

I'm going to be 100% honest my intentions for this are simple.
a) Stay productive
b) Practice for my own projects

So I dunno, if you have anything, post below and we'll see if it works. Don't be shy.

Manimal. I'm all ABOUT bagels.

And as always, I offer a two-way street. It's gonna be under construction for a while, but it's there.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 14, 2016, 08:11:47 AM
Top 20 bagels list now.

Alright then, I'll come up with something for you to do. This is easier for me to make a few comic pages then do a one character drawing so this time I will most likely actually give you results. Payback you know. I'll PM you with a storyboard when I'm done. I don't know what will work for your style though.

Post by: Manimal on February 14, 2016, 04:58:47 PM
*Cough* Sorry I know bumping threads to the recent posts is a douchey move but I'm only going to do it once. I am really itching for something to draw and I have no motivation for my own projects so I'll put out this offer one more time. I know this thread is selfish but uh...you know. :noidea:
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: legomaestro on February 14, 2016, 05:43:37 PM
Darnit Manimal! As a mod I'm obliged to tell you that thread bumping is taboo, fortunately for you I have relevant questions to the topic:

And is there any chance that I could use this service again even after scripting my stuff?

Also, signature up dude. Great way to attract them crowds
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 14, 2016, 05:47:49 PM
I know, I should'nt have done so but I wanted to give this thread one last chance. This is the only forum I've been on where the recent posts section decides the life of a thread. But I know my rule set is not very welcoming.

Ya man defiantly, I am enjoying working with you on this story.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: legomaestro on February 14, 2016, 05:54:17 PM
There might be a need to do something about that actually. I totally flooded the recent posts and not on purprose. I'll see if there's anything that Hasith could possibly do about that.

What do other forums do on that front if you have any ideas?

Cool thing dude. As said, catching up on some stuff here, but I see the page in my mind haha.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 14, 2016, 07:58:07 PM
There is the unread posts feature so it's not like things disappear. On other forums I've gone on there are only 3-4 sections frequented and there is no recent posts so it's different. Recent posts is good though so you can see all that goes on. I know this thread is getting buried because of my presentation so I'm not complaining.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: legomaestro on February 14, 2016, 08:42:07 PM
Nuuuu, believe that this is the thread that will pierce the heavens!

Anyways it's a great idea methinks. Lot's of need for this sort of thing on the forum so good on you for coming up with it.

I don't have anything written for this, but, if your could create a comic titled "Waltz With Cashier," (like the movie Waltz With Bashir) that would be appreciated. Thanks.  ;)

Also Lego nice to see you like the face of infinite misery enough to make it your pic. But again my wording pretty well made this thread D.O.A.

I feel for the poor bastard too much. It is an expression I have felt before but have no way to display . The shaaame.

A Paipis Manimal team up? Interesting
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 14, 2016, 09:55:20 PM
It would be if Paipis wanted to do something, but something tells me his stories wouldn't exactly work with me.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: 50 Words for Paipis on February 14, 2016, 10:34:49 PM
I could try my hand at a silly three page storyboard, but I have to finish reviews first.

And, y'know, getting my story ready to post.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Ennuiwolf on February 27, 2016, 07:26:03 AM
Is this offer still active?
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 27, 2016, 07:38:53 AM
Hell ya. Just keep in mind what I stated in the first post. I don't do action & fantasy at this moment and my comics can be pretty silly. I mean I can be serious if need be but I am in my element when I do goofy stuff. So ya this offer is very limiting, hence why no one has responded, but you know, I just wanna do what I'm best at.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Ennuiwolf on February 27, 2016, 08:38:44 AM
That's cool! I just had a small idea of something quirky and silly and goofy and something that wouldn't make any sense out of my story. Honestly, I had another small idea, but that required at least twelve pages and that would really overstep the boundaries, so just in time I had another small little idea.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 27, 2016, 08:42:08 AM
Oh cool! Ya I just wanted to make extra sure. If you got something like that all I ask for is a storyboard! It doesn't have to be super detailed, or even detailed at all. As long as the actions are clearly described and you provide character and scene descriptions I can hopefully draw it.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Ennuiwolf on February 27, 2016, 08:45:05 AM
Working on it right now!
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free But Lazy Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on February 27, 2016, 08:54:06 AM
Cool, PM me it when you're done!

(http://www.createhopedesigns.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/7415_Lucy_cutout_888.jpg)

I closed shop for a week or two but decieded to re-open as my attempts at my big project have been off to a very slowly start and I want to keep productive so I thought maybe I'll try this again for more practice. I only got 1 offer last time after I did Lego's story so let's see what happens here. I updated the first post so go there and read it if you dig it. I just wanna have a bit of fun and stay productive so um, FEED ME.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on March 30, 2016, 03:43:11 PM
I changed the rules again. I'm willing to give some more action/fantasy type stuff a try. That doesn't mean it'll be pretty but I think it can help me become more comfortable doing serious stories. So again I got no offers so you know if you just wanna have some fun post below. Draw up a quick storyboard and I'll see if it works for me. At this point I'm almost willing to draw in whatever style you want. But I'm not at that point yet. I like to keep my art in a forward direction.

I'll be a-waiting.

Post by: Flames on March 31, 2016, 04:56:41 PM
If you want a serious scene I think I can help with that,  I wrote a re-write of Fire emblem fates, and theres a impactful scene in it, if you want to give it a shot maybe, I see that you are itching to do something, and im practicing on my own stories storyboard's, cant draw for the life of me tho, but working on it !

Well I just copied over the scene here, Not sure if you played fates or know fire emblem but, This is when Corrin gets taken as a child, as a part of my rewrite.

Spoiler
??: Hey, you stop there!

???: Hmm…? Haha.. for you to come find me… it's truly a sense of deja vu…Corrin

Corrin: Your..name was... Gunter right?

Gunter: Indeed, I am a general of Nohr, under king garons command…

Corrin: You… know something about me… don't you…?

Gunter: Why do you think that lad..?

https://youtu.be/CCgXTlCQBgc      Sorry, but this felt so right for me I had to put it here, listen to it while reading

Corrin: This feeling… i'm sure of it.. we  know of each other… so please… tell me… tell me anything…*sob*

Gunter: !! Corrin…! Why…..

Corrin: BECAUSE I'M SCARED!! *sob* I.. DON'T KNOW ANYTHING… PLEASE *sob* Please…. TELL ME! TELL ME SOMETHING...BEING IN THE DARK LIKE THIS...….ITS… I CANT… TAKE IT ANYMORE! *sob*

Gunter: ….

Corrin: I know… I know… you… I KNOW YOU I KNOW YOU….why. WHY WHY... CAN'T IT COME BACK TO ME…SEEING YOU… I KNOW DEEP DOWN...I....*sob*

Gunter: Corrin….Come with me… we can't talk here…Don't worry… we’ll come back fast… hop on…

****
Gunter: I… know of you...Corrin…we have met on occasion.

Corrin: *sniff*What do you mean… by that...?

Gunter: Lets.. just say.. I haven't seen you since that day…

Corrin: That… day…?

Gunter: The day you were taken by….Nohr…

Corrin: Taken…so… I wasn't abandoned ?!

Gunter: I can't.. Say too much.. At this moment  but it should be obvious.. You are not from nohr..
Your father… was a friend of mine… a dear.. Friend… He was a man of honor… and wanted nothing but the best.. For his people… no.. that isn't quite right…

Corrin:..my father…?

Gunter: We… we both wanted people to live in peace… and prosperity...  to achieve that goal… We would face many problems.. Your father and I… we did everything in our power.. To bring these people together…

Corrin: By people you mean…?

Gunter: Nohr.. and Hoshido… your birthplace…

Corrin: Birthplace..?! I.. can't remember anything about that…

Gunter: In time my boy…it will come back to you…But for now.. Just knowing you're safe… here… it means the world to me… That day.. You were saved by such tragic luck…if I was a mere second late.. You wouldn't be standing here…

Corrin: You… saved me..?

Gunter: If this is what you call save.. Then by all means I did… *sob*

Corrin: Gunter..why… why.. Are you crying…?*sniff*

Gunter: You… please.. Carry on your father's wishes… and live on….. you must… live on… even if that means being with Norh.. please don't do anything that would anger them…

Corrin: It might be a little late for that… but i understand… Do you… know of my past self…?

Gunter: I… do… and of your family… however.. That can't be told right now… i'm deeply sorry for this absurd excuse… please bear with it…and the pain of not seeing them anytime soon...

Corrin: Its for me… isnt it…? All I have to do is stay with Nohr.. until that time comes...right..?

Gunter: That is correct boy...

Corrin: I’ll do as you say… thank you.. for the information… hey… don't just hug me out of nowhere.. with no warning...

Gunter: Sorry…lad...I lost my control….i'm just glad you're alive and standing before me..

Corrin: it's fine… I...my father... must be someone important to you… I  wish i could feel the same way you do .at this moment…but all that's falling are empty tears....

Gunter:  Corrin… please.. I can't wait to tell you about everything… when that time comes…i’ll tell you, everything.

Corrin: I’ll be waiting for that day... Gunter thank you for this... even though it still hurts... you have put me at ease....

Gunter: Im well aware of how painful you are… I can see it in your eyes...stay strong...and you'll make it to that day just fine...I promise you.

Corrin: I'm..glad to hear that...I’ll look forward to reaching that day..

Might be a litle long for a small comic tho hehe,
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on March 31, 2016, 05:01:58 PM
Hmmmm, my whole knowledge of Fire Emblem are the characters in Smash. Well...maybe but again I'm not comfortable with like really serious stuff yet so if anything I'd prefer something a little lighter to start with. I'm not to keen on doing fan-fic but if you have a scene I think can work for me maybe.

EDIT : okay now that you've posted something...eh I'm not too sure. Look at me, whining no one is giving me offers but dancing around this one. That scene is a bit long, remember I'm aiming for 2-3 page things here. I know opening the door to fantasy and action is going to give me things that are ill fit for me, and if I want to be a good artist I should try new things. Maybe if you have another lighter shorter scene.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Flames on March 31, 2016, 05:07:19 PM
Haha yeah, I realized it might be a bit long...  hmmmm as for a lighter and shorter scene... I am not sure, everything I write turns out to be on a serious note with small comic reliefs here and there. I tend not to be too keen on the fantasy side either. Only thing I have on me is the 1 pager from my manga's storyboard, and its heavily undeveloped in terms of visuals, but I already have things mapped out on how it should look, terms of setting, objects and things like that but my feeble hands. As for a comic, I dont think any of my funny scenes are big enough for it, maybe in the main story but yeah it will be wierd jumping ahead, its a decent ways off


EDIT: I could just post the scene and see what you come up with, along with the characters would you like that?
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on March 31, 2016, 05:24:48 PM
Oh that one you posted yesterday? You shouldn't worry about which part in the story it's in, I made this thread hoping to get random scenes, I'm not looking to do another big thing like Lego's Larry Pine story, but rather a variety of random stuff. I'll say I'll give that one a try if that's what you would like.

I had a lot of reasons I didn't want to make this thread, and hesitation bumping it yesterday, I really just wanted to do comedy and light stuff but when no one was replying my artistic boredom lead me to bump it yesterday. But it's good to try different things that seem off for me to do so you know. 

EDIT : Jeez dude you keep editing, I don't know when to reply. Ya might as well post it.
Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Flames on March 31, 2016, 05:30:24 PM
Er yes, the one I posted yesterday. Anyway, heres a scene down the road, it has some "Explicit" language.. not much haha So, thats the scene, in a classroom, they are situated in the far back right with the girl being in the back(Reyna) and the boy in front of her (Ryo).  http://imgur.com/a/Fz4du their mock ups.

The girl should always have the same expressions, and the boy well, I think you can get the feel of the scene.

Spoiler
Oyyyy.. somebody whispered.

Ryo was sure he knew who it was but he just wanted to ignore this pestering noise he heard. He was repeatedly getting stabbed with an eraser at the end of a pencil.

Hey….

Just ignore it Ryo, ignore, ignore, ignore.

Hey Kidn…

Ryo jumped and turned back instantly, he knew what she was going to say and had no choice but to turn.

What the hell do you think you're doing?! He whispered while the teacher continued writing on the board.

Would you happen to have a spare pencil?

What.., you would call me that for just a *censored*ty pencil?!

Is there someone wrong with me calling you a kidn..

Shut the hell up you dumbass! Here take a friggin pencil take all of them if you want idiot!

Ryo had taken a box of sharpened pencils and given it to Reyna and pseudo slammed it on her desk.

He then turned around and began facing forward and taking notes again. But then once again he felt the nagging sensation on his back this time with a pointy feeling.

Oy.. you gave me too much.

This irked Ryo quite a bit. Just wait till class is over and stop poking me with the *censored*ing point! his voice was slightly louder without turning back.

Hey Ryo! something wrong?! Nick asked.

Ryo’s voice must have been louder than he thought, all thanks to Reyna, who had been pestering him with a pencil for six minutes.

It's fine! Uh, er I was just thinking out loud… huh… ha..haha..

Well, keep it to yourself, i'm trying to instruct.

Y...eah.. sorry. Ryo said in a  depressed tone.

Finally it seemed like Reyna had stopped annoying him with the pencils and was silently writing along with the teacher.

The lunch bell rang, and students started to prepare to leave and go to the cafeteria. As Ryo stood up, Reyna had dropped the pack of pencils on his desk and and headed out the door.

She didn't even give me thanks, that bitch!

mmm sorry for the edits  :( I just don't want to get in trouble for double posting and what not, anyway she keeps calling him a kidnapper.. for story reasons


Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Manimal on March 31, 2016, 05:35:11 PM
Okay this scene sounds like something I can work with. If you can whip up a storyboard for this I'll give it a try.

Title: Re: The Manimal's Free & Fun Comic Service
Post by: Flames on March 31, 2016, 06:54:53 PM
Okie, so a few things, you dont need to be constrained with the strips, I just did it here for ease of use as you can see the words might be a bit scrunched up and the slam pencil was removed, I'll learn little by little.


 (http://i.imgur.com/rFEjEFu.png)

Hopefully,... I got the idea across, the boy gradually gets annoyed, but like I said the girl doesn't change her emotions or face much.

Got ya...I'll probably expand this to another page to get some more space and show more characters, I'll also flip it because I don't draw comics like manga. Just take a look at my comic thread, link in my sig the first one, to see what you'll get out of this so you know.

I'll try and see what happens! I don't know when but I'll post it in my comic thread if I get it done! Any reason why that kid is being so extreme?

Well, you would have to read the story haha, in the gist of things, she might have done things that make him extremely angry, but it revolved around her calling him a kidnapper, its the comic relief of the story.  And yeah, i saw some of your comics, you can do it however you like, im excited to see what you make.

Oh cool, sorry I didn't say anything but I've started on one of my own projects so I don't think I'll be completing yours, atleast not soon. I made this thread because I was artistically bored and as soon as I re-opened it I suddenly had things to do. Bad timing!  :tongue: So this thread is pretty well closed again for now.

EDIT : Oh ya, Nair if you're reading this still send me stuff.

Post by: Manimal on July 03, 2016, 02:55:54 PM
Okay I'm going to try re-opening this. All offers from before will be pushed off the table. I'm starting fresh from right here, basically like opening a new thread.

Check the op for all the juicy deets and beets. We got a lot of people posting here now! Look at that 3 threads posted today of artists wanting writers! Ha ha, now look here. This is a fun thing and it's for a 2-3 page bit. You can just toss me a piece of one of your stories or something. It's just a fun thing. Just do a storyboard, it doesn't matter if it's chicken scratch, as long as it's clear enough. So check out that op if you are interesting and post below. Or message me. There is no guarantee I'll do it and I might lose motivation or start one of my own projects at anytime so we'll see.

Post by: Manimal on March 26, 2017, 07:02:19 PM
Going to try this again.

I am very unpredictable with stuff like this and there are no guarantees, but if anyone is interested in having me draw a  page or two of their story then read the first post and message or post here. My inspiration to do things is very inconsistent but I just need to draw comics again.

So ya, check out the first post and let me know know....no? No, know.
