Ninjas vs. Guilt

Ninja bros,

I think I'm finished, although the contrast in the values really differs between tests on my inkjet and laser printers... both of which look like crap! Hahahaha!! If the printed version will look like the screen, that's cool, otherwise I can change levels accordingly.

Love Always, DC

RE: We lost some good men out there...

Hey team, I wanted to throw out this idea for our allies with busy schedules and such. While doodling I thought to myself how it was funny to show Whoever Vs. Ninjas in a single panel, simply by showing Whoever on the far right, and ninja stars flying at them from the left. One could choose whatever antagonist, be it lizard-men, warlocks, robots, daisies, or Dick Cheney, and simply plug them into the right side of the panel.

Clicking this should bring you to a version big enough to see:

Certainly someone with a better sense of design could improve on the panel's layout - put less negative space in the middle and have maybe three or four variations of ninja star arrangements - but hopefully you get the idea for now.

Perhaps if people wanted to they could provide a simple drawing of an opponent, and they could be compliled into a couple of pages at the end of the book? Also, maybe the panel with the Mystery Silhoutte might work as a masthead/banner/logo? What do you think?

changes to storyboard

All right, after several attempt , I finally manage to repost my boards with some changes. Hopefully it reads a little better this time.

We lost some good men out there...

I'm sorry to report due to busy schedules, a few people have had to drop out of the NinjaVs book. Colin, Anne, Bruce, and Nick have unfortunately been forced to pull out. Which leaves myself, Danny, Dave Chai, Gia, Jason Courtney, Jeff B, and maybe Ian and maybe Wayne. By my estimates, we still have enough for about 50ish pages. I think all the stuff we've seen so far on the blog has been great and I can't wait to see things progress. Keep up the good work and have fun with it.

vs. catering trucks ending II

Trying to improve my ending; thanks for the help Dave & Dave. I hope this one works. I added another page; I hope that isn't any trouble this late into the schedule.

*2 minutes later*

N1: His Flying Lotus technique was surprisingly advanced.

N2: Almost a worthy opponent.

N1: And another objective in our mission is accomplished. Now we must make the arduous journey to Michoacan Tacos & Ice Cream, to obtain their legendary headless chinchilla!

N2: Just thinking about it gives me the creeps.
