I have like 4 different comics I want to work on, some of them I've been developing for over 10 years. Part of my problem has been time and now my problem is, where the heck do I start in the timeline of the story
I'd like to make an indie game. There's like 3 different ones I'd like to make:
One's a survival game set in a sci-fi post apocalypse setting that I'd either do as a top-down shooter or third-person type game, that would emphasize both trying to survive in a hostile setting and exploration/treasure hunting.
Another's a strategic RPG where you have to manage the needs of a crew on a spaceship while flying around a semi-randomly-generated universe doing jobs and missions. I really like strategic CRPGs like Fallout, Arcanum and Wasteland 2 and want to make something that feels like an almost-endless CPRG. Something like if the world and random generation from Starbound and the party management and mechanics from Wasteland 2 got mashed together.
The last one's an action shooter. I'd like to incorporate mechanics from beat-em-ups like Devil May Cry into a first or third-person shooter. That's it, it's just something I've always wanted to play.
I'd also like to make a webcomic and complete a whole narrative arc for the sci-fi setting I've been working on. I've been considering writing it, because I used to do a lot of text-RP and I'd be able to do that pretty naturally, (any time I dig up old text-RP stuff I think "Wow! I was able to write/come up with all this? Why did I stop writing?") but I don't feel it would quite "work" as well on text as in a comic.
The main thing stopping me from going ahead with one of these is the fact that they'd all take so much work and involve learning so much new stuff that it'd be impossible to do more than one at a time, and they'd all take a long time to do. I want to do all of them! But I'd have to decide on just one, and that'd end up being the only project I'm working on for a really long time.
I've always wanted to make a comic series about my characters, but I can never bring myself to do it. Commiting myself to drawing in a comic style, which I'm not very good at, drawing dynamic poses and introducing an interesting plot/story line just seems way too intimidating to me ;v; maybe one day I'll get myself to do it...
Another thing is, I've always wanted to write a book/short story about something. Not a fan fiction, not a book about an idea just already exists... Just a book that hasn't been done before, one with good characters and a plot and a good climax. But I can always get started and never get finished...
Write my own piece of music. Actually i do work toward that goal. But i didn't have any experience in that domain before, and i am study alone, so it's hard to know if i am going in the right direction, wich often bother me. Another thing is 3d art, but i guess it's just that when you really like something and want to create similar things, but you know that it's probably never happen.
I wanna adapt my convoluted ideas of my office assistant gijinkas into a webcomic that's a mix of spice-of-life in a work environment (like The Office and Parks and Rec) but also focus on Deeper Themes(tm) like LGBT-phobia and prejudice against women in STEM (especially in the 90's). My only barrier is coming up with a story people would actually WANT to read, or at the very least, a story I could feel good about telling that would make sense, since I have about 10945897435 different ideas, timelines, headcanons, etc. rapid firing through my brain.
I also want to learn to animate in various programs and build a decent portfolio - without having to go back to college - to potentially apply as an artist somewhere. But that's very unlikely since I don't want to move to California for work...
I have a lot, actually, but the only one that's stuck around is a novelization / webcomic about mine and my girlfriend's characters (she was going to write, I was going to draw): file.toyhou.se/images/2905524_… and their friends. We both find the story extremely compelling, and a story worth telling, but...
It's too big a story. In part, this is because neither of us have ever tackled a novel or webcomic of any length, let alone the monster that would be their story, but also because... it doesn't seem feasible with our career choices? I'm in grad school to become a veterinarian, and my girlfriend is in school to become a nurse practitioner. Our job frequently entails long shifts and high stress, so we're afraid that with our career choices doing something that huge just isn't possible. :c
Ether a comic or animated series where I can bring my characters to life the way I see them and envision them in my head. Something that is an amalgamation of all my favorite shows and characters. Create a world and story thats real and engaging, but also insane, hilarious and doesn't take itself too seriously.
I've always written stories and novels so i kinda thought that but its actually more of a hobby for me at the moment- id love to see one of them published someday... I wrote a script for an animated short film last year and I desperately want to bring it to life but I get the 'blank page/Maya file fear' and worry Ill not give it the proper quality it deserves if i work on it by myself... I know I could but its that massive starting out fear you know ..
Im more to have lots of little projects rather than one massive one.
since like 5th or 6th grade i have dreamed about making a beautifully illustrated, faithful comic adaptation of the redwall series by brian jacques. at LEAST three books but the whole series is the dream beyond a dream
there are so many things that i find myself not ready to take on, such as researching the appropriate attire and drawing architecture and sooo many weapons..so many.....weapons..............
but GOSH it's like i've always wanted to put to canvas what's in my brain when i read and think of these stories. whyyy can't i just spill my brain onto the pages!!!
