The winning entry to the contest is by Spuddyhell! Congratulations!
I really love the use of pencils, the cool style of the characters and the cool little LOTR reference. (From this page)
Tomorrow I’ll post a couple of runner-ups, as I had some really cool entries to the contest! Don’t worry if you missed out this time, I might do another contest if people are interested after Chapter 8 (Which starts the day after tomorrow!!!)
I’ve had a couple of entries for the contest so far, but there’s still plenty of time to enter (about a week!), and I would absolutely love to see some more of your art, followers and friends!
Recreate any panel or page of Stories of Adventures in any style you like!
Re: The post I made a while ago about lengthening the chapters
I realise many of you probably won’t care too much, but the original plan of having chapter 8 be 30 pages long is going to have to go! I’m currently about two thirds of the way through that 30 pages, and not even halfway through the events of the chapter yet, so looks like I’m going to have to extend it again! I won’t set a page number this time, as I just want to let the chapter be as long as it needs to be. I’m estimating between 45 and 50 pages right now. So no worries, you’re only getting more Stories of Adventures! Just wanted to keep you guys in the know.
I’m going to keep on drawin’, look forward to seeing your contest entries!
I’m aiming to have Chapter 8 start in about 2 weeks time.
But, fear not, because in the meantime, there’s going to be cool stuff happening!
Be on the look out, because between now and the start of the next chapter, I’m going to be posting a whole bunch of things including:
A special animation!
Not enough? Well then try this on for size!
Been a while since the last competition, so here’s the game:
Redraw a panel (or a page if you’re eager) from anywhere in Stories of Adventures, in your own style or however you like! You can enter as many times as you like, and I’ll announce a winner just before the new chapter starts.
Even if you don’t want to enter the competition, I always love seeing fan art and messages, so please send me something to brighten up my day!
You might remember a while ago I created a character poll to find out the most popular characters in the story. Last time it was Jerome and The Horse, but since then the characters have been through a lot, and there are a few new characters. If your favourite isn’t on the list, let me know who it is!
Is it just me, or are you making these a bit flasher now? (Also, damn you for killing Jerome. He wasn't the hero we deserved, but the one we needed. ;_;7 Jerome)
Well thank you for saying that!
I guess I’ve gotten a little more accustomed to using Paint now, so I’m a little more comfortable trying new things. There are a few panels in particular that I spend a while on, like big landscapes and such (in fact the next page has a panel that took me some time). But I guess it’s mostly just that I’m used to Paint and it comes more naturally to me than it used to. When the comic started, looking back at the first chapter, I didn’t try too hard but now that people actually read it, I feel like I should make a bit more effort.
Throughout Stories of Adventures, I’ve tried to keep each chapter to 25 pages exactly, because it felt like a good size. However, as we’re in the last few chapters, I’m finding each part of the story more difficult to fit into this mould. Therefore, I’ve decided to extend the last three chapters (that includes the current chapter) This means you get more content, and I get a bit more room to add in some extra funny bits and ease off the pace of the story.
So, Chapter 7 will run to 30 pages long, as will chapter 8, and the last chapter, Chapter 9, will be a whole 40 pages long! That means Stories of Adventures will finish on page 250.
Hope you guys enjoy what’s to come, and always feel free to ask questions or submit your own stuff!
