FEATURED COMIC --> Gryphon Rise
Read: ttp://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Gryphon_Rise/

In a little, out of the way, medieval hamlet known only for its gryhon legends, lives a young lad who hasn't had much luck in life so far, but an opportunity arises that just might change things for the better! If only he can get a real gryphon feather... but it's not going to be easy, oh no. Gryphon Rise is an action adventure fantasy story, with a good dose of humour. The art is full colour and all digital. This is a fun comic with a lot of recent updates!

MAY THE "FOURTH" BE WITH YOU

Happy Star Wars Day!

To celebrate, the 2015 Drunk Duck Awards are back in full FORCE today.

Niccea has a large update:

Voting for the winner of the For Your Consideration contest will be until May the 10th. Votes can be PQed to Niccea ( http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quack/compose/?user=Niccea ).

CONTESTANTS

SnowTheHedgehog: WOWIO or the Drunk Duck Corporation or whatnot need a new, now's your chance to apply!

Kou The Mad: The Zombie Army of Ghenghis Khan invades and steal the awards.

CallMeTom: Plot idea 1: Do to budget cuts the Drunk Duck Awards will no longer provide gold plated caviar powered limos! Now all FYC's need to make there OWN way to the awards!

CallMeTom: Plot Idea 2: Well since the last venue got wrecked after that thing during the afterparty and then kinda blown up. We now need to find a new venue! Addon by Bravo1102: No one wants to rent us a hall, from the big theaters down to the Local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall)

KAM: Space aliens, or a mega corporation, or a mega corporation run by space aliens, is looking to take control of some intellectual property that they can use to promote their ideas and make money so they're analyzing various Drunk Duck comics as potential properties to buy and conquer the world with.

JustNoPoint: JustNoPoint tried to cheat and see who wins early. He creates a time machine that malfunctions sending everyone on DD to different time periods. Now it's up to them to find their way back to their own timeline and get to the awards!

Ideas could include but not be limited to: Characters going into the past and living all the years it takes to get to the awards again.
Raiding old awards.

Dr Who references galore!

Going into the future and living it up in the FIXED DD!!! :o

Would need 1 page to start it off and 1 page to finish the story where something happens to correct it. Maybe Niccea goes back in time 1 minute before I mess everything up and bonks me on the head or something.

FEATURED COMIC --> We Made a Comic
 
What do you get when two sweet potatoes/yams decide to collaborate with each other to make a comic? Mashed potatoes!
 
We Made a Comic is centered around the personified yams, Allen and Scott. The premise follows the formula for gag-a-day comic strips about two couch potatoes sitting around making video game reference jokes, only this comic stars actual tubers. An added bonus is that both yams have great hair and one wears eyeglasses.
 
There are great modern references scattered in this comic like Five Nights at Freddies, Dungeons and Dragons, Mario Brothers, Star Trek, The Walking Dead, Comcast, Shadowrun Hong Kong, and anime among many others.
 
The art is digital and crisp and drawn using a Wacom tablet. All the comic strips are in full color and there are some daring uses of silhouettes and colour combinations.
 
This is a collaborative comic project between the creative duo, Spencer and Jim.
 
Read We Made a Comic by Spencinator before these potatoes get baked or worse, fried. Rated Teen.

TIMING


This week's news-post is going to focus on non-comic related current world events.
 
As a world traveler, I have been to many places and met many other fellow travelers along the way. One of the benefits of keeping in touch with friends abroad is that I get to see some sights I have never experienced in person through photographs that I receive.
 
Last week, two very close friends of mine were traveling in Kathmandu, Nepal, and my email inbox was getting flooded with photographs of Buddhist temples with painted eyes and several coloured flags. There were pictures of their hotel room, restaurants, and photographs of the local monks wandering around the street. On Saturday morning, news of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake was reflected on every news source. My friends had fortunately traveled out of Nepal to their next destination two days earlier on Thursday evening. I wish I could say the same thing for the 3,200 (as of Sunday evening) reported dead from the initial earthquake and its aftershocks.
 
Nepal is one of the countries that my friends visit to lend a helping hand in volunteerism while seeking spiritual enlightenment in their temples or by taking on Mt. Everest. I am sure we have a few adventurous webcomic creators here on Drunk Duck that have traveled to Nepal. Good hopes and positive thoughts go out to anyone in our community who has family or friends directly affected by last weekend's Nepal earthquake.
 
Earthquakes are an all too familiar topic of concern for me after having lived in Los Angeles for eight years. Southern California is no stranger to earthquakes and the largest one I had experienced was a 7.6 magnitude in 2007. New Zealand experienced a major earthquake in Christchurch in 2010 and 2011. Earthquakes can happen with very little advanced warning, so if you live in an earthquake-prone region, maintain an emergency water supply, re-enforce your building's foundation, or consider relocating to a different region.

Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/…/episode-215-a-guide-to-go…
OMG! This is the third part in our long running series of discussing good and bad character traits in webcomics and everything else. Bravo, Tantz and Pit are all along with Banes and I for another go around and doing their best German accents as a tribute to Abt Nhil to start off. As usual we read out some very enlightening contributions and then discuss them jointly afterwards. This Quackcast ran a little long because of it- we had a LOT to say! And do not forget Gunwallace's great musical theme, this time it's for Clint which also happens to be that week's featured comic!

QUACKCAST 214 - Good character, Bad character? Part 2
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/…/episode-214-good-characte…
Art by PitFace
Continuing our theme from last week, Bravo1102 joins us to discuss good and bad character creation, along with two very well written characters; PitFace and Tantz Aerine! We use our best silly voices to read out the words of the smart people who had something to say on the subject in question and then we all get together to pick apart and discuss the points they made. Bravo joins us for the first time as a participant and not an interviewee and showcases his excellent and versatile vocal talents! Also- Gunwallace's tune for Joy To The World is especially funky. Please enjoy Quackcast 214!

Quackcast 217 - Sexy and attractive characters
http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-217-sexy-and-attractive-characters
For this Quackcast we thought we'd explore what makes characters sexy and/or attractive: Men or women, it doesn't matter, original characters, or from TV, comics, films, radio, games, whatever. How do you make a sexy character? What's a good example of a sexy character? What makes a character sexy? We had a LOT of people telling us what they thought and we had some pretty strong opinions ourselves! Also, you will LOVE the sexy Roxy Music sounding theme tune for The Flower and the Nose by Gunwallace.

QUACKCAST 216 - Characters done right, part 4
Listen: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-216-characters-done-right-part-4 (Image by Genejoke)

This is the FOURTH and very final part of our series on what makes a good character in webcomics, movies, and any sort of writing in general. Our very first four-parter! Ozone and Banes are once again joined by the panel of Pitface, Tantz Aerine, and Bravo1102. Together we get though the last of the contributions from the great and wise people of DD who've had a lot of very intelligent things on the subject of character writing. And of course there's an amazing aural interpretation of a comic for you by Gunwallace who's done a spectacular theme for Prodigium.

FEATURED COMIC --> Johnny Bullet
Read: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Johnny_Bullet/

Johnny Bullet is a tough guy, he's brave, clever, and he drives muscle cars for a living... and sometimes solves crimes. Jonny Bullet is a newspaper style action adventure comic with a retro 1970s feel. The art on the old style cars, buses and clothing is great! The story style also seems to pay homage to that vintage. Have a look and see, it's a lot of fun! The art is in solid black and white. Read Johnny Bullet by Toondoctor, rated E.

MUMBLECORE IN WEBCOMICS

There is a slightly odd trend in screenwriting for indie films called Mumblecore where the actors are given a very minimal to non-existent script to work from and are forced into creating natural dialogue on the spot. I believe the director has a general story outline of where he or she wants the characters to end up, but the tiny nuances of conversations are given to the actors. It is a liberating way to create a film. It is also a hit-or-miss genre for film viewers.

There have already been previous Quackcast ( http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/quackcast/episode-68-save-the-cat-for-the-screenwriting/ ) discussion topics and a tutorial ( http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/tutorial/478/ ) on tips for Blake Snyder's Save the Cat! screen writing method (compliments to Banes). Screenwriting definitely does have its perks for organization and making the most of the limited comic panels for more fully fleshed out dialogue.

Realistically, I feel there is a time at the start of any budding comic creator's career when comic pages are created with very little structure and the dialogue is made up right on the spot and the bubbles get filled in randomly after the panels are drawn. Many beginner comics share many dialogue similarities with Mumblecore films. Eventually the comic writer enters a crossroads to either begin drafting more though-out outlines with rough sketches for pages or continue down the random road of whimsical comic creation.

When I first ventured into comics, I was very much accustomed to the "Mumblecomics" school of thought where I had a loose plan of where I wanted the story to end up in ten pages without any clear road map to get there. After more time and dedication started being poured into each comic page, I decided to create really rough outlines with the character poses in a smaller notebook before starting a new age and the final pages ended up being really tight with advanced dialogue.

It is difficult to compare the two creation methods and select a superior style because it all depends on whether the goal is to create a gag-a-day comic strip versus a comic story. The Mumblecore technique applies to both styles and it will guarantee a small, yet devoted following of indie readers (that is, until your comic gets too cool and goes mainstream).

FEATURED COMIC --> Clint


http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Clint/


Splitsville. Plastic lawn flamingo. Silence. Alone. Ginormous ants.

Our main character lives alone in a dark, empty house. He goes about his daily tasks that involve reading the mail in an abandoned park and walking to the grocery store and leaves without paying. He watches DVD movies by himself until he passes out on the sofa. His only company is a plastic flamingo on his lawn as he's drinking through cans of beer. Have I also mentioned that there is a huge crack in the ground around his neighborhood for an unexplained reason?

Once a month he ventures to the top of a cliff to talk to another grumpy loner named Clint who resides on the opposite side of the deep ravine that separates the two land masses. It turns out that Clint only has a taco truck as a food source and a radio for entertainment. The main character has an entire grocery store filled with entertainment and food for days.

The city is currently being invaded by dreadfully large ants that are keeping the men from finding an escape route.

Clint is entirely in monochromatic grayscale. An interesting stylistic choice is that you can actually see the outlines of the original page sketches with an overlay of cleaner, more professional lines in the finished page. All the fonts are hand-lettered.

Read Clint by 1rd2th3st before the terrifying ants get you! This comic is rated M.
