Guest Strips Wanted

Post by Dissension »

Ever wanted to draw a Housepets! strip? Well, now's your chance! We'll have at least a week of guest strips, beginning next week. Frequency of posts depends on the number of entries received. Please send your strips directly to me - neodissension[at]gmail.com. If they fit within the comic's PG rating and general tone, I'll put 'em in rotation. You are welcome to submit your own alt/title text; if you do not, I reserve the right to add my own. (We also reserve the right to reject entries without notice.)

Finally, of course, all entries become the property of Rick Griffin Studios at the time of submission. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or PM me.

Hmm...

Despite my limited artistic ability, I may try to do this.

Do they have to be 4 panels? And what about color?
Also, would drawing them on paper and then scanning be fine?

Oh, and the most important one: When are they due?

We'll need strips by Sunday night so I can have something in rotation for Monday's update. There's not currently any other deadline; we will update that as necessary and any strips not used during this round may be used in the future.

You are not required to draw and color digitally; four years ago, I submitted a guest strip that was drawn in pencil on printer paper. It was rejected because people are immature and may have interpreted it incorrectly. As long as your strip looks good, I'll consider it.

If anyone wants to draw one but can't write very well, I'd be willing to collaborate.

If by 'collaborate' you mean... I propose an idea and chart it out, then have you draw it and make it live.. I could be convinced!

I'm really busy this week, but I guess I'll dig up the couple I had ideas for and finish them off.

One of them was "Housepets by Vallerie Nightengale"...

This sounded fun, despite the unfortunate circumstances that leave us this opportunity, so I tinkered today making one using my dumb phone. Still thinking of trying one using actual draw-y utensily things though.

OH!
I told my friend SilentPrincess about this and that she should draw one, but she was all like "I can't come up with anything."

Maybe she'll be willing to draw your idea. I'll check.

I was just wanting to know, are we restricted to just drawings or could we do other art mediums like watercolor or whatever?

I don't speak for Rick or Diss but I see no reason why it has to be limited to a single medium. I know at least one guest comic in the past was done with watercolor.

Remind me to start learning how to draw better than Sinder Sleet next time a guest comic is needed. =P

Also, Wong ~ <3 your Star Wars comic. He's like her brother!

I feel like it's important to note that I can do better than that. That is not the highest level of artistic skill I'm capable of demonstrating. *giggles*
