So, a couple of people made their epic attempts at the “24-hour comic” this weekend, and someone else was making note of it and said “You’re meant to do 24 pages in 4 hours…” which is a typo that he may or may not fix soon, but which matched an idea I’d already had, while talking to Iain about his comic as he did it.
See, really, the comic is meant to be 24 pages (or 100 panels, for online comics), all drawn, inked, lettered, colored, and done before the end of the 24 hours (also scanned and online, in the case of the 100-panel online comic in 24hours). Not four hours.
But … I think I can do a 100-panel online comic in four hours.
In fact, I’ve just been having a little bit of a chat with Iain, and despite his utter, miserable failure at completeing the 24-hour comic in 24 hours (at least you aren’t a quitter, Iain! ::wink::), he also believes he will be able to complete a 24-page (or 100-panel online) comic in under four hours. Before the end of the week. So, how about we say that before next Monday at 21:00MST, Iain and I will both have our 100-panel comics online, each done in under four hours?
Anyone else want to play along?
