I always think about fun ways I can improve my site and things I want to get into and explore. Its just with the lack of time and a full time job I haven't been as adventurous as what I would like lately. But, I've had a few requests in the past about making a choose your own adventure comic.
That's a lot of work to put in, and with digital media it would be hard for me to do if not in a flash player. And yes I know the rumors of flashes demise is greatly exaggerated(much to dismay applephiles out there). However, a few weeks or months back I stumbled upon an artists donation drive to fun the purchase of a new tablet. Great artist and his drive was successful. Some of you probably read his work. He's the guy behind Grow Comics and here is the link to his drive image starting image fav.me/d6h45xu . If you click through you can see what he does with it.
I think its a pretty clever and fun idea. It got me thinking and finally I thought enough about it to where an idea popped out of my head. Kinda like how Zeus gave birth to one of his children, only instead of giving birth to Athena an idea popped out of my head, and I bet my epiphany was far less painful than Zeus' mother of all headaches(pun intended).
Anyway, in case anyone is still reading let me detail how it would go down. I would present I think a group of characters. People would vote on who they would like to see. Then after that we vote on the story, and the catalyst for the strength. Then we would proceed to tell the story. At the end of the image choices would be made for the next options and we keep going.
I'd also like the growth phase to be just as interactive as how Bustartist had his.
There are a few details that would need to be ironed out, as I would need to hire a great artist for this and I don't have any lined up.
Also this would be a free comic posted freely on DA. But, it would be funded by donations, and I would also supplement that with my own money. If someone is a member of my site Mighty Female Muscle Comix. They would have a certain amount of voting points to spend each month. And if they wanted to they could purchase more through donations. Again this is meant to be fun.
The end goal would not be a tablet for myself but hopefully a fun comic for everyone to read.
I don't know if this idea is fiscally sound, but I thought I would share this concept. As the amount Bustartist raised if I even get 1/3 of that I'm certain it would be a great comic!!!!
