I humbly submit to you a comic that I'm starting.  Only the first strip is up, and it's not very good.  And probably not very entertaining, although the pace will pick up very quickly.  Any feedback would be appreciated (but keep in mind that I can't draw and I am very new at spriting.)

How curious :D So are the characters found elsewhere, or did you draw them in paint or something? Looks like it can become something pretty good, So good luck with it!

They're from a Mega Man game, I'm sure of it!
The Dean is obviously Dr. Light, the Blue Kid is a palette-swapped Mega Man, and the little girl is probably Roll.

exactly.  Someone with entirely too much spare time created a sprite sheet from screenshots from MegaMan 7, I believe.  Then I downloaded the sheet, and made some minor alterations.  I don't if I'll use sprites from other games or not.  Hopefully, I'll get good enough to actually make the chars look different.  (Particularly finding another way to pose the Roll sprite...)

The sad thing is, I didn't make up the potatoes thing.  I have friends who actually did that.

I think they filled it about a third full.  But they didn't get caught at it.

I'm not sure.  It would have to be a hell of a lot of potatoes to fill an entire elevator.

Wow. that must have been quite a feat. Did they just get tired of throwing potatoes in the elevator? i would think that a lot wouldn't stay in and then roll around on the floor.

Well, in any case, the thread isn't about potatoes filling an elevator, it's about Ria's webcomic.

I like it. Kind of 8 bit theater. It makes me want to learn how to rip sprites from the rom's I've downloaded and make my own. And I have 527 roms downloaded for just such occasions...  :twisted:
After a brief retirement while I got married and traveled the country, I'm back. Just getting back into the swing of things for now, but gearing up to hit things up like I used to.

Should you be interested, The Shyguy Kingdom is where I've gotten most of my sprite sheets.  And there are a lot.
