I've always wanted to give the webcomic pinata a wack and just see what happens (and if it doesn't work then it'll be another statistic and dropped, so who cares, right? ; )

But the main problem is that I cannot draw. I could do stick figures but I personally think that's lame and an excuse . I want to actually try to make a good webcomic with, at least, decent art, characters and script.

So if anyone can give any advice as to how to draw simple, easy cartoons I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!


Also, here are the rough character profiles for the 'comic'

Guy 1- Psychotic, wants to establish a communist state so to put everyone to work so he would have enough resources to raise Cthulhu
Guy 2- Almost normal one, has no personal skills but with his friends. Agoraphobic (afraid to leave the house)
Guy 3- Schizophrenic, has multiple personalities brought on by playing different games
Girl 1- Guy 2s ex gf. Crazy, always trying to kill Guy 2 (think girl in Blues Brothers that is always firing guns)
Ferret- Tries to stop Guy 1 from succeeding in his world domination

(Please feel free to comment on this ↑ as well)

    I'm going to warn you before the wolves take hold of your barren post and rip you to shreds; the Artist Corner is for posting art. If you don't post any original art, you will be torn from limb to limb in the most hideous and excruciating way imaginable. If you hurry and get some art in that post, you can avoid that which is to come.

    You have been warned.

    That said, get your hands on Loomis' "Fun With a Pencil" that should give you a foot hold in the art basics. Also, your characters are...lacking. Crazy guy + crazy guy + crazy guy + crazy girl + sentient animal = done to death. I'm all for character quirks and flaws, but there is such a thing as too much. Dial back those characters and give them some real meat before proceeding.

    Yeah, this isn't a thread-worthy topic. If you want recommendations on books on cartooning, try the Questions/Discussions/Tutorials thread.

    If you can't draw, practice until you can or find an artist. If you can't draw or write, maybe Webcomics aren't for you.

    Such as personality and reason for their craziness or just revamp it entirely and keep the crazy to one person?
