Incidentally - is anyone in touch with Locoma?  He did fantastic work on Duck and Quail and I'd love to invite him to do a page here, but it doesn't seem like he's updating comics anymore
 
*sigh*

Darlin,
Sorry if the pages I Do do don't register with you, but I've always had pages in the comic (usually they're the intro ones).

I'm actually working on an FYC page right now (it's where my new avi is from). Yes, I intend it to do double-duty, but there is a page in progress, with probably another two to come.


Next?

If I had the talent you have, I might include the pages I do in the list. But I don't, and I don't.

Now get out there, Sport, and see if you can round up some artists!

@bravo: btw, not that I don't want to see your dolls, but there's still way too many pages unclaimed. 
As of 10 June there are still nine pages unclaimed.  Way too much even for the dolls, it might have to be stick figures scribbled on notebook paper in the dark with a crayon. Oh wait that'd still get more readership than dolls… I can do nine pages with dolls.  A fate worse than death for anyone wanting to read it but I'll carry out this foul(fowl) crime to comics if more artists don't step forward!

Come forward or else the dolls shall rule!  Or maybe I'll go the petting zoo and take random pictures of ducks…

Not in a sordid way.

I fully understand, but I'll never cheat on Bratz Catz Meygan.
 

 
 
And while we're on the subject of gorgeous figures , is there a particular page size we're supposed to be working to on this project?

Hey Ironscarf - sounds ike you're rolling up your sleeves.  :)
 
I generally try to standardize the pages, going for a pixel width between 725 and 825 (I think the site's max is 950).  Sometimes the art suffers from an enlargement, so I can't go tooo far.  And if someone sends in a 1000 width, I'll downsize it.  As for length, take as long as you need.  (ba bump bump)
 
Except for one case, I don't touch the art.  But SOMEBODY sent in an image last year that challenged the E rating.  So I suggested a slight revision to the artist, the artist agreed, and that was that. 
 
I don't believe in a lot of rules.

I read through the PDF you sent me Ayes and there were pages missing…
Anyway, please sing me up for any page that is not currently assigned. Just ONE page mind you, but any of them, it doesn't matter which :)

Sure you do.  Don't patronize the captain of the Imperial Guard.  He's pretty stupid and creates the lowest of all comic forms (photo comics illustrated with action figures) but he's not gullible.

So should I use my Harrison Ford figure to play Maxwell McDuff or Bill Duck. decisions, decisions.  Still eight pages left…

Sprite comics are the lowest comic form, not action figure comics.

Thanks, BffSatan!

I've given you page 9, and ozoneocean will be doing page 15. WooHoo! only seven pages unclaimed now – although still too many for The Whilom Captain of the Imperial Guard. Yes, whilom. Have we forgotten the following?

He, one bravo1102, formerly Captain of The Imperial Guard, esteemed for his artistry, ever prompt in responding to the calls for aid from his Czarina, untiring in his devotion, is this day recognized with an elevation in rank to Major General of The Imperial Guard.  (regretably, The Czarina has a limited budget).
———-
 I thank her Imperial Majesty for her kindness in bestowing this exhaulted rank upon me and I shall do my utmost to fulfill my duties.  
However let me make it clear that as a major general of the Imperial Guard that doesn't include singing Gilbert and Sullivan and especially any fast-talking number from Pirates of Penzance.   Thank you.

Can't disagree but they seem to attract readers like flies on dung.

Anybody know a  detective game I can use for characters for DD RADIO PLAY the sprite comic?

Just recolor some Sonic or Mario sprites, that's what most incompetents do.
If I had some more time I might actually choose to do another page and try to show people the difference between pixel art and Sprites. That might be cool as well. (But I don't have enough time for even more pages…)

If I may… first, it depends on the style. Do you want top-down? Use something like http://charas-project.net/ to make the characters, and then find background elements from various GBA or DS titles (the japanese dating sim/visual novel type games will suffice). If you want to do something that actually looks remotely like a proper comic, I would look into games like Snatcher, Policenauts, Rise of the Dragon, and maybe even Space Adventure Cobra.

My current page features Bill Duck and Max. My art features no men…
Max and Bill are ladies on my page. ^_^

Is Bill Duck supposed to be a duck, because I drew him as an old guy with a bald head, but I can always change it?

@ironscarf:  If I understand correctly from Oz's post, Bill Duck is an old woman, hair optional.

So my second page can be seen in the 2013 DD Awards Comic sometime on Monday (according to Niccea). It's an FYC.
As for the first page, I, uh, haven't started drawing it yet. #truetales
