  1. I’m Landon and I’ve loved to write and draw comics my entire life. I’m big on character development and emotion, but also comedy. I have a comic called Deforming on Webtoon, and it’s full of magic and emotions. I have huge plans for it, and the ending is gonna be a big payoff. Now I just need help finding readers! Thanks for the opportunity! Can’t wait for you to see it! https://m.webtoons.com/en/challenge/deforming/list?title_no=487922
  2. Here’s the video essay that got me to start thinking a LOT about theme. Ever since, I’ve wanted to use fantasy as a tool to portray ideas in a more raw way than I can with anything else. For instance, my current project centers around 2 characters using 2 different magic systems, one powered by logic, the other by emotion. My goal was to show that a balance of both is required in order to make it through life successfully. HOWEVER. I spend most of my time watching kids cartoons (I’m allergic to swearing, shut up) so I’m used to getting my themes served to me pretty clea
  3. I feel like maybe there should be a club or a forum for comedy as a genre. Maybe thats not a thing in printed media... Idea #2! Forum/club for people who write films or comics or plays and whatnot!
  4. No worries, I wouldn’t dream of it. Thanks for the help
  5. I’m considering writing an autistic character into a future story, or some kind of similar mental condition. I’m not sure where to begin, what does this look like? Any advice is appreciated. Read my current story on Webtoon: https://m.webtoons.com/en/challenge/deforming/list?title_no=487922
  6. Interesting take! Of course i never mean to say that cliches are bad. What I mean is that every main character needs an internal struggle, but that I would like to see some new, fresh struggles. Getting over an ex, overcoming addiction, learning to understand your older relatives, these are all ideas i have yet to see a character deal with, at least in fantasy. On the other hand, I’ve seen “believe in yourself” more times than I can count. And in execution, sometimes it can be as simple as changing up your dungeon party to include your twin sister.
  7. You could call them Fragments? Of a whole? Idk you’re right, it is a trope
  8. This statement is true, but layered. Yes, characters should feel relatable, and that requires a certain level of emptiness. Thats true of any genre. But “relatable” can take different forms. I think everyone’s a bit tired of the “good kid who just wants an adventure to prove himself.” Let me guess, he also needs to overcome his insecurity and get the girl? These ideas aren’t bad, but they are cliches that are difficult to get your readers past. Try some new types of characters with new types of internal struggles. What about a fantasy protagonist who’s self
  9. I love how Star Wars drops you right into the universe. Even if the title crawl wasn’t a thing, you could probably figure out what was going on pretty quickly. The universe feels real, because you learn about it slowly, the same way you learn about the real world. Using a character who is unfamiliar with the magic system or lore is a great way to do this. I also love how Star Wars will reference its universe without explaining what the snide element is. (“We’ll be sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel!”) You don’t need to know what it is, but the fact that it exists makes the world feel more real.

  11. I’m Landon, and I am in college but not of college. I’m a homeschooler, so all college dudes seem immature by comparison. I’ve loved to write and draw comics my entire life. Writing is my strong suit, but I love the visual aspect that comics provide. I’m a cartoon connosuir and a Star Wars pacifist. I hate swearing with a burning passion because it makes no logical sense. (Part of why I’m here.) If you need recommendations for cartoons that are fun without being juvenile, I would love to give you a list. I’m really big on character development and emotion,
