Forum:Does IllogiNews want a comics section?

If so, what would we like to call it? If nobody gives a shit, and a while goes by, can somebody stick one in there on their own initiative, or suffer the jibber-jabber? So many questions in life. Presently not disGruntled - Exchange ideas 03:08, 23 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)

I would like to help ye do a comics section. But what to call it... IllogiNews Cartoons?...--Teh Chicken Magnate, The Honorable Colonel Sanders 12:04, 23 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Teh colonel, you rule. Toons or comics, or funnies... many possibilities... maybe a random permutation engine, cleverly coded into the actual name? At Uncyc, I used to make a fair number of strips; it suited me well, as I have no skills graphicwise, and it's really easy to use. Plus, there's a nice community of folks there. Some of them think I'm bat shit... don't know why. I am not suggesting using stripgenerator as an official engine or anything, just recommending it for anybody interested who've never made a strip before. Any objections to starting a template for strips? Cheers! Presently not disGruntled - Exchange ideas 21:06, 23 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Why can you not just call it the 'IllogiNews comics section'? Aside from just generation, though, there are plenty of people here skilled in simple graphical images, and I could try to make something as well if I can be bothered, which I probably can't... hmm... ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 25 Novelniver 2010 - 19:14 (UTC)
Well, I have a basic piece of crap example for the IllogiNews Comics. IllogiNewscomicgarfield1.jpg

It sucks. I know. I tried. I'll do better when we actually start a project. On a somewhat related note, I could also do an IllogiNews Horoscopes and Puzzles section. What do you think?--Teh Chicken Magnate, The Honorable Colonel Sanders 21:37, 25 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)

I think it'll all end in tears. Or Roberto terrorising everyone. Or both. Or the hamsters might get out... have you seen a white hamster, by any chance? ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 25 Novelniver 2010 - 22:05 (UTC)
Let's just contribute to TCIAL. —rms talk 22:11, 25 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Hmmmm. But this could be a good idea!--Teh Chicken Magnate, The Honorable Colonel Sanders 22:12, 25 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
How about both? ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 25 Novelniver 2010 - 23:30 (UTC)
Hells, why not use some of the cake ones as comics for the news? O_o ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 25 Novelniver 2010 - 23:31 (UTC)
Yeah, why not. IllogiToons has been festering somewhat since Huge Bob decided to naff off to Mars or something. Plus it's more stuff for the Illogiblog to pimp! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 14:01, 26 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Oh, so we do still have at least one person who actually sort of understands what's going on... guess the festering shall stop, and we can grow a new bed of moss. Erm... toons. ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 27 Novelniver 2010 - 04:45 (UTC)

I maed this for yuo. It may become a series. Not very disGruntled - Exchange ideas 08:11, 27 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)

The problem with comics is that really, most people suck at drawing things, I can draw fairly well, but i really need more practice, personally i'd much rather practice my realistic drawings and 3d work. We (me, helloolleh and testicles, while yakk pretended he did) tried making a Slightly below average man comic, i've got all the character drawings somewhere, had scripts and everything, but nobody really had the time, we wanted to make comic books and then narrate them with voices. sadly it died because helloolleh is in denial about his drawing skills and testicles and I are too lazy when it comes to drawing. The other problem is Burnt Face Man means writing anything similar just results in a knee-jerk response of "OMG stolen ideas". --Silent Penguin 19:02, 27 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
The problem goes away if you use stuff that handles most of the graphical decisions for you. Especially so with, which is easy and fast for any idiot who can't draw at all (like me). Not very disGruntled - Exchange ideas 21:36, 27 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Must you be such a downer about everything? I mean, really... Gruntled's right - we don't even need artsy skills for this. For that matter, some of us new folks have more that you'd care to admit, anyhow... ~ Pointy.png AthyriaLyrithyaIsarra *shifty eyes* (categorise) • (create) • (upload) • (argue) • (dream) •(talk) • (stalk) • (block) • (acronyms)VFFFIIotMAotMTSROotPGSPRRWAMWAEQDVFDVitalAfC500TLA -- 28 Novelniver 2010 - 15:13 (UTC)
IllogicoHaiku Number 3 has been published. A while ago I added the ATBF toons, which I originally did for Uncyc, but seem more apropos to ?pedia IMHO (if anybody cares). Not very disGruntled - Exchange ideas 16:58, 28 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
Okay, I'm really liking these haikus... so... crazy. Now more, more!

Thanks, I will make more. I've begun a new potential series too, called Batmoose Rescues Mary Not very disGruntled - Exchange ideas 17:12, 30 Novelniver 2010 (UTC)
I thought the two were one comic and got confused... then one took longer to load, and it all made... well, it didn't make sense, whatever it made.
