I figured it would be a mixture. Some funny moments but with a very serious plot line. Maybe some deaths and surely some dark moments.

All of the above. I think it'll vary.

When you get legal rights for Ahk and his buddies, I won't be able to draw them as much, correct? I understand, copyrights and all.

I hope I don't sound too stupid since I'm a fairly new watcher, but what is Ahk? OTL

rofl, Ahk is a character I have been working on developing since Feb 14th, 2011. I'm surprised you don't know him. I post him all the time (well I did until I started the legal stuff on him, where I was advised to take it all down temporarily), and you've been with me since.... July of last year? No worries though, I love to talk about him.

I am currently in the process of obtaining legal rights to him and the other characters of the story, but here is a general FAQ if you want to read on him a little. [link]

Here is a bunch of art of him (by others since mine is offline until I get his papers) -> [link]

His counterpart is Koko (the brown bird you see there). I haven't revealed their connections to each other in the story yet, but they are connected.

Oh, really? I feel bad now OTL I know about the character(it's a wolf-like character with the skull like your icon, right?) but I thought he was the title to your story or something, and I didn't know the background of it :'D Now that you mention it, I have read that FAQ. I feel even more stupid now OTL;;;

Anyway, can I ask a few questions? For example, you said it's going to be a comic, right? Are you going to base the style of the artwork depending on the story or have you chosen the style of artwork already and are making the story now? (or you've done both and just want our opinion? XD)

I just wanted to know because when I was making my comic called Infitia, it changed pretty much every day XD It went from being a colourful children's story [link] to something more dramatic [link] and now it's completely black and white. It evolved from a cute story about a boy travelling with stars into a tragic story about a boy finding his identity and how he died, all because I decided to play around with Google SketchUp one day. It also has a link with Dante's Inferno, the black and white style replicates the colour of engravings by artist such as Gustave Dore during that period (Victorian England). So the artwork you make has a pretty big influence on your story.

So yeah, I can't really vote on it because it's your comic so it should be how you want to to be XD But since you designed the character first, he looks a bit mischievous but his red eyes and skull mask make him deadly mysterious. I would say go for a dark or serious story based on that judgement. :) Sorry for the long comment!

Lol No he is the main character, yes he is my avatar/icon.

I already have 90% of the story written. I am filling in the small details now, but. I was curious to see what peoples expectstions were. As for the Art style, I am working on that still. Graphic Novel/Comic style is not something I am very familiar with. That is the main reason it may be a year or two before I get the first issue out. But, I am not too worried about it, I am kinda satisfied with just working on making sure the storyline is a good one. What good is a story with good or cool art, but a weak storyline?

Well, I am worried about it... Having to develop a style I am unfamiliar with. I love the graphic style, but even then it varies greatly. Lol Either way I plan to take my time until i think it is ready.

Sounds like you have been a busy writer. XD

And i do not mind long comments.

Ah, I see! Graphic novel style is not something I'm familiar with either, mine will be a webcomic so hopefully I don't have to think much about it.

Well that's not necessarily a bad thing. If it's executed very well then people might not notice a weak story. For example, the video game I'm really into is a very simple game with a simple story to go with it (also ripped off from one of my favourite books BUT I still love it) but the graphics and characters make it so captivating. It depends on your focus, do you want people to see the world you create or the characters? For me, it was mostly exploring the world of Victorian towns since I like them so much :) But I can tell you probably want to show off your characters more, it's probably better if you do work on the story more then XD

Good luck with whatever you do, btw. Can't wait to read it! :dummy:
