This is my first critique, so I'll try to make it a good one. Firstly, you've inspired me to try photopainting. I like the effect of co...

Hi everyone. I'm a BA in animation studying postgraduate in digital design.

Even though I studied animation, I'm just striving to improve my drawing skills, and I'm more interested in comic making and visual storytelling, simply because you can do it independently and it's a lot faster getting your ideas down.

I'll post whatever tutorials, advice and resources I think will help other deviants improve in the art field as much as I have over the past 3 years.

Hey it's been a while. I've been preoccupied doing a little bit of voluntary client work. I shouldn't say too much about them, but they're a government organization that got its funding cut off when we changed prime minister (when the liberals came into power and kicked out labour). So my friend recommended they ask me to do an internet animation campaign for them to put on social media. That's what I've been doing for the last few months. At last it's nearly finished.

Unfortunately my health isn't as good as I thought it was. I was at Centrelink yesterday (for people around the world, it's the company that handles unemployment pensions) attending an interview they set up for me. I started feeling really dizzy and then passed out. Luckily my mum was there. I don't even remember falling over. I was reading a form that I had to sign and the next thing I knew I was waking up on the floor with the staff all concerned and kneeling over me. Apparently I fell on my arm and it really hurts when I try to move it. If only it wasn't my drawing arm. I never wound up signing the form, and I don't know how I'm going to get it back to them. Now I'm concerned that I might pass out again and nobody will be around.

Since moving out of my mum's place, I've missed the functionality and time shift of their Tivo. Over the last couple of days I've been converting my old PC into a home theater PC with Windows Media Center and Windows 7. It's much better for recording shows than my Viera TV. Finally I can set it to record a series and not have to remember to schedule every single episode. Now I just need to learn how to add media libraries.

A few weeks ago I also purchased MotionArtist, which is a software for making multimedia presentations (but is mostly designed for making motion comics). I'm still reading through the manual, but in the near future I hope to use it to add limited animation to comics. I believe I could make something really awesome if I also learn how to animate in Photoshop and put little animated cycles into the comic.

Oh yeah and hope you're all having a great Easter.

I came up with this in the middle of the night. Thought it would be funny in relation to your comic...or something. XD [link]

That's very good. I'm not really into MLP but I am familiar with all the custom ponies people are making.

I was going to put Ben into the comic, but I couldn't fit him in anywhere. I had to cut a lot out.

hi there. I wanted to pass by a sort of "Stay Tooned theory" I've had since before I saw your comic:
If Fiddle is the only character siding with [the player] and constantly being tormented by the other toons, wouldn't it make sense that he was once a human that was also dragged into "TV Land"? This is backed up by what happens at the end of the game to the player.
Just an interesting thought.
Digi-fish Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. I guess great minds think alike. When I started the script I had that idea too. I thought Fiddle would have a pre-backstory where he once lived in the apartment building and had a relationship with Mrs Findley (about 50 years back). Then all the events that happened to the player happened to him and the rest is history.

The only problem with this backstory was it conflicted with Fiddle's main goal, to get back to his own world. It would seem like less of a happy ending (I'm going for bittersweet here) if Fiddle remained stranded somewhere that wasn't his home. Although, now that I think about it, that could allow for some character development as he's had years adjusting to TV Land (which I guess would now be his home), and he could teach the player character that "home is where the heart is".

But I've had to cut out a lot of substance to keep the comic the length of a standard issue (it's 32 pages)...and that wasn't really the message I was trying to focus on in the story. I'm thinking about doing a written version with more complexity in it (and better character development), but for the comic I've just kept the story as simple as possible.

(Oh and the player character in this comic is called Brad Bates, but you don't find that out until about page 8).

Hi there! Love your art!

I was wondering (you don't have too), :iconbegplz: could you spare me 5 points? I'd be so ever grateful!

Thanks for your time!

I probably could. I'm not using them for anything.
