Thursdays With Banes - Contrast and Conflict

Ozoneocean has been goodly enough to let me participate on the DD front page on Thursdays. So I'll be jabbering here weekly and attempting to be

1. Entertaining and/or
2. Informative and/or
3. Punctual

It's a treat to get to do this, so thanks!

CONTRASTS

The first time I noticed the power of contrasts was in my friend's music. He's a massively talented songwriter, and aside from interesting melodies and chord progressions and powerful insights and images in his lyrics, he uses contrast a lot. Laughter and tears, being high but low, trapped but free…there was a lot of that stuff going on in his songs.

This was actually the inspiration for naming my comic “Typical Strange” (Read it here on the Duck!) Those opposing words, at least to me, are somewhat compelling!

Contrast can exist in many forms. It can be as simple as good vs. evil, or a comedic or romantic pairing of “opposite” characters, or a marriage of two different “realities”: A normal suburban neighborhood is invaded by an unstoppable, insane killer. HALLOWEEN (I had to mention Halloween. I ALWAYS have to mention Halloween).

It can be a sane person in a seemingly insane world, or an extraordinary person in the ordinary world. See Brian in The Life of Brian or Forrest Gump for one, and Superman or Dracula for the other.

Contrast can also help with your stories. If you want to do a story about a character who becomes the Queen of the Fairies, what kind of character would be more interesting? Someone who loves fairies and fits in well with them, or a snarky wiseacre who doesn't fit in at all?

Maybe contrast is an obvious thing to many of you. It's something I hadn't considered until recently, although I tried to populate my comic with a mix of diverse characters that would butt heads in as many ways as I could think of.

Anyway, that's my first effort! Hope you have a fine Thursday!

Whadayaknow? A Quackcast on Fan service? Heeeeey! Stop looking at my panties!
This was a good chance for Banes and I to try out our funny voices.
And Gunwallace does a lovely theme for Grueson!
 
Quackcast 225 - To Fan-service or not to fan-service
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-225-to-fan-service-or-not-to-fan-service

Today Banes and I talk about the subject of fan service in comics (and other pop-culture). This Quackcast was inspired by a newspost by HippieVan of that same title. We're helped in our discussion by the really interesting contributions of many smart people on DD… that we read out in High-larious voices! Is fan service a good thing? How do you think about it in stuff you read and see? Do you put it in your own work? Why? Why not? These were some of the things we talk about on the subject. Also, catch Gunwallace's great theme for Grueson!

Hey hey hey! We talk to +Kevin Hayman  in this Quackcast about the idea of "finding your own voice" as a writer. This was an interesting topic on writing and learning not to imitate or parrot your writing heroes.
 
QUACKCAST 224 - Finding your own voice as a writer
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-224-finding-your-own-voice-as-a-writer

For Quackcast 224 I've asked Kevin Hayman back again (KOTA's world, Mailbox Rocketship, Erant Apprentice), to regale us with his Owen Wilson stylings…
But seriously, the topic is “finding your own voice in writing”, i.e. learning not to imitate your hero's, move beyond that and write in your own style. Kevin is a really funny and interesting guy who's been doing webcomics for many many years since the very earliest days of Drunk Duck and he has some great insights to impart on “finding your own voice”.
You can also catch KOTA at the Mississippi comic con this weekend!
-Enjoy Gunwallace's lovely, creepy musical take on our featured comic, Restless.

Banes and Bravo take over the Quackcast!
Stephen Willoughby and Banes talk about WHY people do webcomics.
Also features marvellous music by David Tulloch!
 
Quackcast 221 - Banes goes Bananas!
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-221-banes-goes-bananas/

Banes is home alone in the studio this time while Ozoneocean was away gallivanting around the globe… he's joined by intrepid security guard Bravo, who saves him from a fate worse than death. Together they chat and gabble away about things and stuff, primarily inspired by the topic “Why do you do a webcomic?” Together they manage to find out. Reading the contributions of many fine DDers really helped along with that though! Gunwallace provides a great theme for Clockwork Atrium too!

FEATURED COMIC --> PreteenDemon
Read: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/PreteenDemon/

Jasomet is a little boy demon. He's been summoned by a Goonies type group of three guys to help rescue a lost girl from a strange cult that think might have kidnapped her. Old timey DDers might remember the name Jasomet... he was born from a relationship in the comic Elijah and Azuu, which used to be one of the most popular comics on DD! Well, this is what happens to Azuu's son some years after. Author Ink Monkey has returned, with his with Tea Green (another old time DD stalwart), to pen this fantastic sequel. It's a demon/heaven/hell supernatural adventure comedy. It's very funny and the art is recognisably in Ink Monkey's trademark style.

Read PreteenDemon by InkMonkey, rated T.

Banes and Ozone Ramble ON about Ozonocean rambling on... and meeting fellow Drunk Duckers Tantz and Pitface in AThens.
And appropriately we also have a great theme from gunwallace for Athena Sculpture!

Ozoneocean and Banes Ramble On (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-EakzxmO-o) about Ozoneocean rambling on while they catch up after a long three week break since Ozone has been in Greece with Tantz Aerine and Pitface, and then Serbia while Banes and Bravo were plotting to take over the Quackcast. After they caught up we chatted about various pop-culure things like Mad Max Fury Road, Babbadook, Brooklyn 99 and more.
As a sort of treat there are some pics of Ozone, Tantz, and Pit:https://www.facebook.com/DrunkDuckcomics/posts/955197307848007

This is the second show in our examination of  what makes characters sexy and attractive, and THIS time we have two sexy ladies along to help us!
 
Quackcast 218 - Sexy and attractive characters, Part 2
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-218-sexy-and-attractive-characters-part-2

Once again we're chatting about just WHAT makes characters sexy and or attractive. The sexy Banes and Ozoneocean are joined by two attractive ladies, PitFace and Tantz Aerine, so now we have even more insight into the topic! We discuss the topic with humour and intelligence, with the help of the fantastic contributions for some very canny and sexually attractive Drunk Duckers. And of course we have some lovely music by Gunwallace, a secret agent theme for FOX Academy The New Breed!
