Hey! You know what you need? A community project! This one's run by Salsa and jninjashadow, and they need submissions from YOU! (Yes, you!)
jninjashadow explains it:
BUG- Bad Ugly Good
Entrants submit a comic based upon the month's theme to myself or Salsa. The current theme is "How to Start a Web Comic". We take the submissions, and we post them first with the bad ways to go with the theme (lets say their start has no relevant information, or its supposed to be a drama that starts with a series of puns)then we follow up with proper examples.
It is all in the name of education mind you, we aren't doing this for the purpose of ranking people's skills (there is a button for that after all). These examples people submit are going to help newer artists learn what and how to do a comic, or at least that's the intention.
We ask that everyone goes ahead and submits something, regardless of your skill level. We need good and bad examples for this to work. It's in the name of progress after all, plus you may learn something or get a chance to practice with a theme/ situation you don't normally encounter with a comic (last thing anyone wants is to come across a serious scene with no experience in making one). People can submit pages from their comic, or make new ones exclusively for B.U.G., their choice. All we ask is that the Drunk Duck populations at least considers a submission. Submission thread in the forums!
