Well, after a horrendous amount of effort, I managed to get the pencils done. Now to ink it...

How's everyone else doing?

Anyone?

Well, I actually got the darn thing all drawn out but can not for the life of me get a working scanner.

But tomorrow! Tomorrow I shall try afresh!

*sigh* Sounds good to me. Major props to you, Aileen, for trying to keep this thing going, but I'm just not sure it'll be worth the effort if the lack of enthusiasm keeps up.

Aileen, you can bring your artboards to Office Depot or some similar business for them to scan. Just thought I would mention that...
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
May He cause His face to shine upon you.
May He lift up His countenance and grant you peace.

Maokun: Ninjas or Pirates? (Vikings are not a valid answer, sorry)

EricTheFred: Vikings are always a valid answer.

Hey, do we have any takers for this month? If not, well, less competition for me! I just finished procrasti--I mean, gaining valuable information for my idea by researching knife-throwing. So expect flying cutlery in this month's comic! Fun-fun.

Thankfully, I've had enough odd hobbies over the years that my dad isn't disturbed when he looks over and sees me sketching knife grips and browsing pages on knife-throwing.

I have an idea, but it seems very difficult to pull off and it's more a concept than a story. I'll see if I can flesh it, but it doesn't look great.....

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!111one

But, seriously, I can relate. I'm still trying to figure out how to tie all my random ideas into an actual story. And by "actual story" I mean "something that won't be impossible for me to draw."

Ooh, ooh. I really am shooting to get one done this time, I have an actual concept and everything. ^^
Is the 24th the final date?

I'm not sure. I just mentioned it because the last official deadline mentioned was a week before the end of the month.

If the dealine is indeed the 24th of this month(or was it of last month?), I have something that I just need to ink if there's still time. It's not much(not enough to give Aileen a good competitor, I can tell you that), but I did try. ._.;

Haha, Goldy, way to turn up the pressure. XD

Wait. Does this mean I've become the candidate to beat? Dreams do come true! Huh, guess I should get back to work then. Good luck to everyone!

The theme is still "Hide and Seek", right? Unless I missed something and have to come up with a whole new comic in a day. @_@
And the pressure isn't turned up that much Aileen, my comic skills are less than zero, you can beat me without lifting a finger. :p But I'm having fun making it, no matter how awful it may look. XD

Actually, I think the July theme was changed to 'windows,' but don't panic. Nothing was set in stone, and since the mods didn't alter the first post in this thread, I doubt it matters. So full speed ahead!

Really, I think a more appropriate theme would be "please, somebody enter. Anybody? We'll give you cake."

Don't sell yourself short, Godly. Beating you would definitely require me lifting a finger. An entire hand, actually. XD

I'm really trying to get an entry done, but I'm currently visiting my family for the first time in months and then driving home (8 hour trip) tomorrow. So if possible, I'd like to beg an extension to the 25th, or even the 26th if possible. *puppy eyes*

I don't oppose the time extension, even though I barely got mine done, it could use some extra time to be worked on(not sure if I could improve it though). But I could just submit it as it is and hope it doesn't look too awful. ._.
(I might do that before midnight tonight anyways. XD)

I dished out too much for myself, and I'm not going to be able to get an entry done. Good luck to the entrants, and way to go. I'll look forward to seeing what you all did.
I think I will finish out my idea just for the practice, since I do like it. ^^ And I will definitely be out in force next month, and will get a start on it more than a couple of days before the deadline. ^^;;;;;

Well, August is now here, so what are everyone's thoughts for this month?

I think Goldenspines should choose the theme, since she was the only one who got an entry in on time.

hmm. I actually have an idea for this one...not too sure how well I can pull it off. Since I have no scanner...mspaint here I come! uhm...so can there be color or does it have to be typical manga stuff (black and white with patterns and such) I don't think my computones (sp?) cd works with ms paint...
