Cimmerian Studios

Uberblah

If you want, I could try writing, but I'm no good at art. I just would like the basic plot to work with please.
Wukei

Okay, let's see...I could use some help on the following:

Life for Death:
Angel of Death makes a bet with a mortal and has to live a year as a human. I have about 30 comics to give you an idea of the characters and the plot.

Endless Nights:
Comic about a vampire hunter who's a living vampire (wrote this before I ever knew of Blade, but it's quite different.)

Daylight Assassin:
The story of the daughter of the vampire hunter above and a werewolf raised by a vampire.

Knights of Tengoku:
Knights of Heaven. Two angels and a vampire (same hunter as above) working together to rid the world of it's evils.

Randomized:
The story of 3 (soon to be 4) characters, basic Brains, Brawns and Beauty. Great great grandchildren of wizards who swore to protect the world with their powers. The main one (fire) visits via ghostly powers his grandchild and bestows this legacy on him to find the owners of the other powers and save the world from the inevitable darkness.

(I can give more details, these are just short summations.)
Uberblah

I think I'd be interested in Life or Death; or Randomized. But only one of the two right now because school is starting soon.
Wukei

Honestly, Randomized can sit on the back burner forever and a day...I'll link you to the LfD comics...I want to revamp them, so they'll not stay as they are now...but basically be the same, just different layout
Uberblah

See your PMs for an explanation.
Wukei

Yay! I have a writer for LfD...I can be semi-lazy. *goes off to write for the six more waiting around for her*
NecroPaladin

Consider me on the job when I get back.

At least part-time.
Wukei

Good, I'm hoping that's as an artist...I really need artists. I can't do everything, after all...(even though Brandon and Brandon [sounds like a lawfirm, donnit?] think I can...)
NecroPaladin

As both, if possible. I love art, and I really do enjoy writing, too.

((It...kinda does.))
Wukei

If you have your own comic, like I said, we're willing to fund publishing it.
Uberblah

Wu, I plan on keeping up with the comic as you make it, but I'll need you to tell me when I need to come in. I'll do my best, but I can't promise anything.
Wukei

Of course, we can plan some...I'm working on the teaser page right now (the second comic) I'll have it posted here tomorrow.
Uberblah

Alright. I have the basic idea of what you're planning, but we should work out the details. You don't have AIM do you?
Wukei

I do...I dislike it, but I suppose I could get on AOhelL...
Wukei

All rightie, for the new people that are on the boards that are interested:

I am still looking for artists/writers/etc that wish to be published under a company name instead of just their own to start out with.  

Life for Death is in the process of being revamped, and as soon as I revamp it I'll get the website revamped and we'll start the comic up and running again.  Instead of having a comic strip style it'll be full (hopefully full coloured) pages.

If anyone wants to help with others, there's a few things listed above that need help, and I'm also willing to help with other people's ideas.
Sophistemon

As you may know, I have been attempting to find an artist for either of my two projects. For the first project (The Costumed Heroes of America) I need an artist that can accurately emulate the art style of an American comic book. For the second project... I do not need to be so picky, though I would my personal preference would be for the illustrations to be done in the Western style.

If you know of someone that would be willing to work with me, you can count me in as a writer.
Wukei

I have a friend that likes to do western style...I'll talk with him and see if he'd be willing to help...

Last year he was too busy, but we'll see if things have changed...
Sophistemon

I would greatly appreciate that.
Wukei

I'm actually getting out of IA, but I've got my own business (2 actually) that will be doing similar things.

I'm sorry, I just don't want to be affiliated with someone that won't even allow someone to edit their work so that things are spelled correctly.  Nevermind the grammar of the book....
Moxie

I would love to get into writing for comics, I'm a very visual writer, and would love to team up with someone to have a very visual book.

I'd love to get Psi(Ѱ) drawn up and published, it's about a kid who discovers he has a psionic power, and goes on to discover how complex the world is behind the shadows of the mind. It's based heavily on D20 modern organization. (Psi and Mindwreckers get quite a few mentions)

Spoiler:

Wukei

If you could send me your first one or two pages of ideas and character ideas it'd help.
Moxie

I wrote it by hand a few years ago, and there's much room for changes, as I lost the first few pages (They were crap anyways, not the story, but the way it was told). So, I guess, I'll re-write everything in comic form...
Wukei

Well, Soph,

currently, my friend is unemployed, so he's a bit too busy trying to find a job to do something that at the moment is strictly voluntary.  (Though I plan to pay the artists/writers later, I can't until we actually have funds coming in.)
Wukei

*runs around in circles*

Yes, I get really hyper...and the product of my hyperness?

http://cimmerian.studios.angelfire.com/index.html
Sophistemon

That's fantastic!

And there are no words to describe how excited I am to finally get my project off of the ground.

Thank you so much.
Kenyon

Man, I wish I could help with something like this, but I can't draw worth beans.  I'd volunteer to help with writing, but I'm sure you've got plenty of help in that field (considering the group we're talking to,) and I'm not sure my schedule would allow me to commit to something like that.
Wukei

You might remember Sophie's 'Costumed Heroes of America'...well, I've officially agreed to do his comic, so here's some previews of his characters:

Overman:


These other two I've only tested the waters a bit and weren't fully shaded:

The Streak:

I didn't like this pose, but I'm still working on the western style art when it comes to females

Ms. Tech:

Better, but still lacking something...
Uberblah

I like them Wu. I like them a lot.
Keledrath

I'd help, but I can't draw crap, in two ways.  As in when I had to draw cow crap for a social studies project (It was a cow town after a cattle drive), I had a guy stepping in it.  My teacher thought he was riding a unicycle.
Wukei

There's a comic con gonna be in Lubbock, TX ^.^...This Saturday I'll find out more (dates and such), if anyone's interested...

I'm thinking about getting a booth for Cimmerian Studios...if any artists want to send me art and their prices I'll try to sell stuff and write you up a check for anything that was sold and send back any pieces that weren't (unless you want me to keep the rest for the next convention I head to.)
Wukei

A revamp of the Streak:


Ersatz:


And Wild Thing:
NecroPaladin

I've had a terrible stomach flu for a few days straight, but it's letting up, so I hope to contribute some art within the next few days.  Don't consider it a certainty, though.
Wukei

Well, I'd be happier if my MSN wasn't screwed up by a virus everyone was sending around....but at least I got some work done...

say hello to the revamping of Life for Death:
(Updates every Friday)
http://cimmerian.studios.angelfire.com/lfd.html
InaVegt

I would be interested in writing, can't do art, however.

Randomized sounds like an interesting comic to work on, could you send me a PM with more details?
Wukei

I'm thinking of doing LfD (Life for Death) comics 3x a week until I catch the revamped up to where we were in the story...

Yes? No?  Don't bother cuz no one reads it anyway?
Lykan

Sounds good.

*slinks off*
Wukei

So....looking for suggestions on selling points from everyone...

If you could buy stuff, would you?  What would it be?

Shirts? Bags? Plushies? Playing cards?
Uberblah

I'd so buy a Kerri plushie. And a shirt.
Lykan

Plushies would be awesome. I have no idea how one would get them made, though. >.>
Wukei

I actually have made some...I'd rather use felt than cotton, though...
Uberblah

PICTURES! I wanna see the plushies! Please?
Wukei

Sorry....no pics...*pout* didn't have a camera at the time.
Vael

I think an Anubis plushie modeled after the donate button would be really cute. ^-^
Wukei

He's actually what made me think about doing plushies again...
Uberblah

That would be a pretty cute plushie....
DeBunny

I'd want a hat. >.>
I have odd taste in hats. Pop someone onto a hat and I'd probably buy it.
Kyrian

Put Anubis on a hat and I'd debate it seriously.

Plushies and I'm sold.
Wukei

Well, doing what I can for the audience so far:

http://www.cafepress.com/csheartcatcher
Uberblah

I'd consider getting that. It is pretty cute. Will it come in different colors?
Wukei

To make one in black is a different product entirely, and the khaki didn't look good.
Uberblah

O.O
Wow... I didn't know that. But still, the white looks nice. I'll consider it, but I'm gonna wait to see what else will be offered later.
Wukei

Still working on it, got a mouse pad up (for the few that actually use 'em...) but it's bedtime for me.  G'night.
Wukei

Y'know...I think I've only succeeded in wanting to spend money, not make it.
Wukei

Okay, so when CHA begins on May 1st, I plan to have some stuff up for it.  CO! might have some stuff for it...I dunno if anyone wants any Chin  stuff...though I will be making a donation button with a begging Lucien...

Any suggestions for improvements would be greatly appreciated.
Wukei

Okay...I really need some opinions on this.  This popped up after I finished showing off the next PtP for LfD.

Note: it won't always be a comic, sometimes just characters dressed as other characters, but...

What if I made a comic called Pardon the Parody where I used characters from my other comics to parody movies, etc?  IE, sort of the thing I did here:

Wukei

I have turned the "contact" button into a contact page.

And though it is freakin' awesome to refresh the page, try not to do it too often, k? (I love java...)
Wukei

Well, after thinking it over, there's a lot of sites on the web that explain transexuality, but not what it's like being a transvestite.  So I'm going to do something short on the way I (and people like me) have been treated for liking to dress in something that's considered clothes only for the opposite sex.

I've got to admit, it's not really as hard for me as it would be for a male in my situation.  But I do still get the dirty looks, the whispers...I'm something worse than gay in people's eyes.  And though it's harder for gay people and the transexuals out there, it's still pretty damned hard for transvestites.  Because people don't understand that it is NOT the same thing as transexuality.

So, anyway...probably gonna start this short comic when we were planning on starting CHA. (May 1st.)  It should appeal to some people, I think. I hope some will be looking forward to Life of a Transvestite (LTR.)
Darkblade

Chinchilla Overlords, Costumed Heroes of America, Life for Death and now Life of a Transvestite. 4 comics? Be careful not to over work yourself with these.
Kyrian

Agreed, don't overdo yourself, Wu.
Wukei

The LTR should be done before I start CHA.  I'm not overworking myself.
Wukei

Comics will probably be late tomorrow.  I will get them up though.  I'd injured my hand by swatting at a wasp this morning with a bible (it was the only hard item I had on me) and being surprised by another, having the bible slide out of my hand and bringing the hand back with it.
Wukei

I have finally added the Fan Art page!

(All of the current Fan Art is from 2005 [when LfD first came out].  So a lot of stuff that it links to will not be updated, or it may be made by people you've never heard of if you're still on the GitP boards.)

PM or e-mail me if you'd like to send me a fan art piece.
Wukei

Exactly 3 years ago I joined and first added LfD to onlinecomics.net

Today, on my 3 year anniversary, I got to add CO!

http://www.onlinecomics.net/pages...details/comics.php?memberID=25355

(It's currently not added because it needs to go through approval.  I like their system, so it doesn't bother me.)
Wukei

Edited the pages to include a FAQ.  (One of the questions [that wasn't added to the page] asked most frequently, ironically, is 'why don't you have a FAQ?')
Wukei

CO! and LfD:

Yes, I'm working on them.  Yes, they're late.  I had to take my mom out to get ready for a special dinner yesterday.  They should be done by this evening, if not, by tomorrow.

Sorry for the delay.
Wukei

First sign of LTR:



And due to everything that's happened this last month, I'm barely trying to keep up with the 5 page prieve of CHA, so LTR will not be available when I wanted it to be.
Wukei

Gee!  Over 5000 hits in one month *hugs everyone*
Wukei

Oh...heh heh....also: there will be a huge revamp to the site and to the shop.  I'll let you know when me and my 'team' are all done...

('Team' implies just one more person.  Though if anyone else has any ideas for a t-shirt/hat/whatever design to help, it's surely appreciated.)
Wukei

Okay...my hand is really cramping up...but all of the pages are updated...

Tell me what you guys think.
Wukei

This is another of those comics that 'I'll do it as I get around to it':

Wukei

How many more updates am I gonna go through?  Well last one for today on the site, at least...gotta get to work on comics.

The "Other Comics" page has been updated to include links to the first page of Pokeman (seen above) and the first page of Life of a Transvestite (also seen above)...so...I guess you're not really missing out on anything.
Uberblah

The page is looking really awesome, Wu. And congrats on the 5000 hits!
Wukei

Comics will be late, taking Tubby to the vet.

Here's something to enjoy in the meantime, the setting for Costumed Heroes of America (or part of it,) Downtown Paradise City:

wingrae

Wow, I would so like to visit that city... just based off this pic, it looks like an amazing place.
Wukei

Feeling rather blah today (this is what I get for allowing my mom to drag m everywhere in town), so the comic will probably be finished by tomorrow.  (Hey, it's technically still 'on time.'  It says 'usually' Mon, Wed, Fri on the main page.)

So, here's one of the other backgrounds for CHA:



Yes, it's a background and I drew in a moving object.  The moving object can be removed.
Wukei

So...Lykan may make a better version that will look good on black, but until then, we have this in the shop:



The wording is:

Life for Death
Making Death sexier since 2005.
Wukei

Well, though I've been sick, I'm getting better and should be able to have at least LfD back and running by this Friday.

I also have made a new shop just for random stuff that has nothing to do with my comics.  I've got Lab Rats products that I've already shown off.  Now I have a new product that might fit more people.  (My mom was complaining, which brought it up.)

T-shirts (since that's part of the joke):

front:
The Whiners
(a picture of a bandaid in the middle)
Join the club.

back:
We've got t-shirts.

Darkblade

Now I wish I had money...Thanks alot Wu.
Wukei

Well get money...cuz I need to start making some to prove that I'm not worthless ^.~
Hawkeye

*hug* I know you're not worthless ^.^
Wukei

To try to spread the word about Skinny Pigs, mom wanted me to make a webpage explaining where they came from:

http://www.heartcatcher.net/jefferey.html
Wukei

I am SOOOO sorry.

It has been crazy since we ate those tomatoes.  Apparently, all of TX is affected.

I really hope to get things rolling again by Monday.  I wish I could promise a comic for tomorrow, but I can't make any promises lately, unfortunately.

If I was making money from this, I would actually force myself to not take naps...as it is, health over production.
Wukei

Working on the comics.  They'll be late late (obviously).  I slept all day yesterday and all of this morning thanks to a high fever.

I hope to have them up before midnight.  No promises.
Wukei

Okay, explanation time.

My computer wasn't working, then the net wasn't working...result?  There was no way to get to any of my scripts or old comics.  

So, comics will be starting again on Monday.
Wukei

I know, lots of excuses...for those who've been wondering where I've been:

Stress sicknesses I tend to sleep for days after that something stresses me out.

Normal sickness.
Stress sickness (Lulu [the boy that was really a girl] died from stress.)
A busy schedule.
Stress sickness from cleaning.
Jennifer came to stay in my place, and completely trash it...
Stress from having Jenn around. (Slept 3 whole days.  But I did LOVE her bf.  I can tell we're going to be good friends [if he doesn't leave Jenn for her being an ass to him all of the time.]  He likes all of the same things that I do.)
Dr.'s visit.  To a doctor who was great (my other one moved [I did mention that when I showed the Lab Rats redux for his wife as a going away present]), but isn't a PCP that likes to do chronic pain med dispersal.  So she's sending me to a pain specialist that she trusts.
Stress sickness (Lulu's sister, Fiona, died.  Shadow [the one the black one in the comic is based off of] is now very VERY emo.  Cuz he thought we were taking her away cuz we're jerks.)

To top it all off, I think I have an ulcer.

Sooo...I'll try to start the comics again, soon, but there may be issues on timing of them.
Wukei

For those wondering: yes, I intend to get back to the comics...as soon as I get the scanner to work with any computer that's working.  (Which, ironically, is mine right now.  Everyone else's is broken.)
Wukei

Christmas Contest:

The best Christmas-themed Fan Art (of either LfD or CO!) gets a free commission and a free gift (probably a t-shirt, maybe a t-shirt and something else).

Edit: oh yeah, contest closes Dec 25th at 12 am.
Hawkeye

Just to get the ball rolling, here's an entry for the contest.

Wukei

Just so people know: no, my bf doesn't automatically win (unless he's the only one that enters of course.)  And I've decided on what you get!

Assuming that the mug I get is satisfactory, you will be getting a Christmas mug of LfD and a t-shirt of the Christmas Special of CO!.  As well as the winning picture on something.  (I'd have to decide what it fits best.)
Wukei

For those wondering why comics are late, or if there's any special posts being planned:

http://www.heartcatcher.net/blog/

Yes, there are actual rants on it as well.  (The most recent post was a rant.)  Anyway, it gives me a place to post the excuses for the comics where more than just Enupnion can see it.

(And I should come up with a button for it on my site soon.)
