12 Hour Comic Part Two by ninamo 12 Hour Comic Part Two by ninamo
Part One ---> click here

Second half of my "failed" 12 Hour Comic.

I know it's not cool to say stuff like this, but I think my comic is damn funny. I laughed so hard at the third to last panel I actually had to stop drawing to recover. The rules state you're not allowed to plan anything in advance - story, character designs, layouts, etc., so I made up the whole thing as I went along. No part of this comic existed before I set the pencil to paper, so every panel took me by surprise. The entire story can almost be taken as a dialogue with myself - the human characters ask the questions I had to pose to form the plot and "God" usually answered with whatever ridiculous idea popped into my head first. My one qualm with the writing is that the comedic timing gets redundant. The set up and the reaction were always the same, I'm worried it gets a little flat at the end. At the same time, now that I know that's how I write comedy, I can be more careful about when I use it in the future.

As for the art, a lot of it is pretty gruesome. In the first half, you can see I was really trying to get backgrounds in there, with as many angles as possible. As the clock ran down, I went for a lot of medium shots of talking heads. The character designs are all over the place because I was experimenting. I always thought it would be cool to draw comics in which the style complimented the mood of each specific panel, but now that I have a mock-up of what it would look like, I realize it looks really sloppy. Not just sloppy, unprofessional, like I'm not a strong enough draftsman, which just isn't true. On the other hand, some of the panels are pretty nice.

Damn, what is this shit, my autobiography? Just read the comic and leave me some feedback, I put a lot of heart into it.

Even though you say it wasn't very successful, I think it's a great concept and has a perfect, rushed feeling. After all, the two main characters seem like the type to jump around and move quickly like the pace of the story.

:lol: This is fabulous, simply fabulous! ...As well as a hilarious start to my morning. The ending practically smacked me across the face with laughter, my goodness.

The rapid-fire jokes with the simple art style is quite refreshing, and I'll admit, you're one of the few blessed comic artists that can do 'random' justice. :heart:

i see all

Wow... that demon just tricked that loving couple out of their cat by saying he was God... THAT'S JUST MESSED!!! I have to admit though that the last four panels really got me laughing ^^ I also loved when "God" blew off the guy's very deep question to answer the nice young lady's more sensual question. She seems to try and squirm her question out, seeing as she is actually squirming right up to when she blerts her question out. After that, the question of "Is God a pervert?" was answered...sort of... This may come to a surprise to you, but the way this comic was drawn reminds me of another comic I read before. It's going to drive me CRAZY until I remember what comic this reminds me of...
