Alethea Lim - Five Little Ducks - Adelaide - 24pgs COMPLETE

Postby Alecat on Sun Jun 12, 2011 11:05 am

And I'm back! My shoulders are sore from hunching and the sofa bed didn't help, but I'm in this one for the full 24 hours, unlike yesterday's effort.
Words are:
Longest
Routing
Sacrifice

And I totally see those words and want to do a historic perspective on the internet and its transition to the IPv6 protocol.

Except that's going to be dull and boring and educational so now I gotta think of something else.

Maybe I should do the history of the internet, Connell style - with time travel and robots...!

No.

Gah.

Someone help me please...!

Oh great, my next idea is to write a story about the Three Gorges Dam.

I evidently have no creativity left and am resorting to documentaries for inspiration. Veterans, any advice? This will be my first time doing a 24 page story, let along a 24-page 24 hour comic, do I run with the first ideas or brainstorm for a better one to come along?

Okay so I mulligan'd on the first set of words and started with the words from 11:30 (12 EST). They were vague, circulation and dried.

All up my script probably took nearly four hours so I'm up against the clock to do the pages. They're going to be pretty simple as a result.
Enough rambling. First four pages ahoy!

Meanwhile over at http://john.chenonetta.com my boyfriend is doing a sympathy 24 hour challenge, to write a lot of words in 24 hours. Sounds a lot harder to me, how do you cut corners in a story? You can't use stick figures or panels set in pitch black to scrape your way through...

This is super nifty! Catchy rhythm - I'm enjoying it. =3

This is adorable, and very well written! Is it going to be watercoloured as well?
What, a sig? I'll get to that later.

Nah, probably won't watercolour these ones for a couple of reasons.

I uh, fell asleep for a couple of hours so I've only got two more pages done. Thank goodness I'm doing a super simple style!

Also when drawing up this page I realised that duck feet don't get cold but the "feet" was at the end of the stanza so changing it would be annoying. John suggests, "it's just a super whiny duck".

And speaking of John, he's got the first of his 24 scenes posted on his blog: http://john.chenonetta.com/?p=50

I'm just being plain lazy with these pages, there's no reason why they should take me this long to do. I'm going to blame tiredness.

The expressions on the ducklings faces on page 6 is plain adorable..
