    Default The Comic-Makers' Academy

    (Approved by MS)

    THE FIRST SEREBII FORUMS
    COMIC-MAKERS' ACADEMY


    It came to my attention that there has been no attempt up until now to create an organized way of teaching inadiquate comic-makers to make up-to-snuff comics. However, I, Oblivion the eight hundred and seventh, am here to change that. I have organized this Comic Academy to teach the uneducated comic authors of these forums. With the support of those named below, I have (successfully) appealed to have this academy created. I thank all who read this for bringing in those who need improvement for teaching. The cirriculum is explained below.

    With all due respect,
    Oblivion0807

    Origional supporters:
    Damian the Duck
    Blues
    Flygon
    Mastercougar
    Blueguy
    Power Shot
    Controller of Flames
    Monkeyspoon5
    Devil G


    Academy Cirriculum

    The academy will be incorporating a system of master-student work in its teachings. Each master, chosen from a list of available, respect-worthy authors, will take the student and teach said student how to create up-to-snuff sprite comics. The general five categories that must be taught are as follows:

    Resource Creation - The making of spritesheets and backgrounds and how to use others' sprites in a non-thieving manner.
    Story - The creation and incorporation of storylines in a sprite comic and what makes a good plot. Also how to link plots together into story arcs and revolve them around a central theme.
    Characters - How to create believable, Mary-Sueless characters and develop their personalities correctly. Also includes character interaction and properly-handled cameos.
    Humor - How to properly think up and use the main focus of a comic, the main focus being to create laughter. Also includes appropriate vs. inappropriate and funny vs. dull jokes.
    Maturity - How to use proper grammar and avoid creating comics with a noobish quality. Also how to interact properly within a topic and maintain the comic thread.

    Once the Master believes that the student is ready, all the available Masters and the Founder will be brought together and the student will be given a final test. For the test, the student will create three comics revolving around a theme that a panel of judges chosen by moi chooses. The guidelines are only that the comics are about said topic. The rest of the choices are up to the student and his/her style. Naturally, the judges will be using their toughest criticism. If a student passes, (s)he is awarded a diploma from the school and is expected to create top-quality comics. If not, (s)he is sent back with a new master for more training. As long as new masters are available, the student may comtinue to try again. Students with diplomas that produce subpar comics will be face tougher consequences.


    With that, you must complete a form before you are tutored. Nothing terribly challenging.

    Name: Username. Not difficult.
    Style: What style of comics you wish to make (pokemon overworlds, megaman-styled sprites, hand-drawn, etc.)
    Requested Master: You may request to work under a certain master. However, if the master selected is inadequate, I may assign you a master.


    NOTE: There is no concrete list of Masters. Good comic-makers may be pulled to do mastering duties.

    Blues, I know a jolly old soul who'd be glad to have you. Hold on while I find out if he's available...

    I'll get you Sponge, Occurrence, but you'll have to tell him what kind of backgrounds. Not exactly my choice of a tutor, but whatever.

    Whee stickied! Anyway, I'll be glad to lend my services, but I only draw my stuff, I don't do sprites, but I can do humor.
    Gone. I'm rather dissatisfied with how things have gone here. The staff and the users have exceeded my patience. You can still catch me on MSN, Smogon (as MythTrainerInfinity), or Shoddy Battle.

    I can only assist for a short period of time (winter break.) While I can, though, could I teach maturity?

    I received the PM, and I'll be able to help. =)

    So, how does this work? Do we do it through PMs, or what? I'm curious to know.

    I figure it's Pm'ing... Doesn't look like Oblivion's on right now, though.

    Requested Master: Does it matter?

    I've got a few ideas for my comic but I'm a bit confuzzled over the whole ordeal. I got a book about drawing manga a few days ago it should help.

    If any one needs help with Overworld Spriting you can ask me. I ran a request shop once and have completed many sheets.

    Just click it already.
