Very nice Usedbooks, I like your style in this scene! And ahh I'm kind of
Glad this is going slow for everyone as that takes a bit of the pressure off. I'm still colouring my first page but been a little busy lately!'

I love it, UB! Really interesting direction to take the story, too.

I'm not sure where you're up to on the second page but at this point do you mind holding off a couple of days on posting it? That way the page can go live in the comic itself first. xD

It doesn't matter that much though so if you're too eager to wait, go for it. (EDIT: Aaaand I just noticed you said you'd be a while, anyway. >__>)

I'll finish colouring my first page and post it shortly…

EDIT: I'll get this first page done (EDIT: Nope, it's delayed now too -_-), but I'll probably be a fair while with the second because my comic is chewing through its buffer at a frightening pace and I need to deal with that. >_>

I was going to hold off on the whole thing for your scene to finish. It veers off in its own direction after the set-up anyway. (I'm working on a UB page and my workweek starts today, so it'll be a few days regardless.)

Epic work, Ozone! Pinky seems to have handled it fairly similarly to the original protagonist. Only with more cursing. :D

I still haven't forgotten about this but I started updating my own comic again and I'm stretched a little thin. Let me just nudge out the buffer a little (and finish the page I promised Heroes Alliance and the one for the Comic Jam) and I'll get back to this! Sorry.

P.S. You draw great noses, Ozone. I'm totally hating on noses right now.

EDIT: Seems like emoticons which use pointy brackets make sections of text disappear…

Agreed. Great work. :)

I also had to pause my contribution. Summer is hectic for my job, and I have a lot of late nights and early mornings. This is on my to-do list. I hate to put up another filler in my comic so close to a chapter conclusion.

Yeah, I didn't want to change the action, because that was pretty cool and baddass in the original and I know Pinky would do the same thing to get free… but her attitude is very different. At the end she's ready to KILL with that arrowhead, no matter how much it slices her up.
So, more than anything, I transformed the original character INTO Pinky, rather than just inserting Pinky into the scene.

Okay, so my long weekend didn't go as smoothly as planned (re: alchohol), so I was only able to get one page done, but here it is! I will do the next page tomorrow.

Kassidy is more whiney than Pinky, so I think she would act sort of like a baby in this scene. The next page is a bit more of her personality though!

Would everyone be okay if I set up a comic to showcase and archive the finished scenes? I think these are too good not to be presented outside of a rambling forum thread.

Would link to all creators and post originals as well as swaps. (So, I guess for the originals, it would be like promotional comic teasers.)

I think that is a good idea Used Books! Another DD community project, and I think if it got some exposure, other people will want to try and swap scenes too!

Now I really want to finish the next page! I am camping this weekend though so it will have to be Monday Ashley's project.

I'll be done with my second page soonish too. (Life turned hectic, so I'm procrastinating on my own comic.)


I was starting to muse about villain swaps…


EDIT: http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Character_Swap/

If this is an agreeable format, I'll leave it this way. I'll post finished scenes when they are completely completed.

Finished. :)

Here’s the original scene from Tales of the Unpredictable Chaos:




I swapped in Seiko from Used Books, who is not a badass and cannot fight. I guess I approached it differently, but it’s the only thing I could come up with. I put Seiko in the scenario and let her be herself. (I don’t know if it would go well for her after this point, but she doesn’t fare much better in UB.)





I set this up to showcase full-size pages (and maybe encourage participation in future swapping): Character Swap

Brillaint UB!
I love the comic idea as well. There won't be many in there but that's BOSS! :D

@Pit, sure you can. We'll have to pair you with someone. Or you could just pick who of us in this thread you'd want to pair with.

I wouldn't mind a swap, if it's a just a one page scene ^_^

Technically, she doesn't meed a partner, just a scene. ;) We could change the procedure of the game/project. Let Pit pick someone to give her a scene, and she can assign a scene to the next interested person.

Then there's no mutual commitment/timing to worry about. It also might encourage others to join if the next person can see what comic their character will be subjected too.

Just a thought

That's such a good though I think you should lead this.

Yeah. I can do that. It'd be pretty easy with a “tag off” style. I'll just copy over and rewrite “the rules” with an edit or two.

~~~~

DD CHARACTER SWAP
(thought up by PitFace and OzoneOcean)

HOW IT WORKS

  • Post on this thread for a scene assignment.
  • When you join, you will be assigned a scene (a page or two) from the previous participant's comic and told which character to swap out for your own.
  • Redraw the scene in its native setting but with your own character replacing the original.
  • Post finished page(s) in this thread and/or PQ usedbooks to upload to the comic.
  • When someone else joins, give them an assignment from your own comic.


RULES

  • There is no time limit on your contribution, but when someone else joins, please give them their assignment in a timely manner. (If you don't receive an assignment within a week, you will be allowed to pick your own scene.)
  • You cannot go another round until you have completed your previous assignment.
  • No “fish out of water” reactions. Your character has ended up in whatever scene he or she is in and “fits” into the world. – They will be dressed and equipped to fit into the setting and role but will also act in character. (This can be very close to the swapped-out character or completely differently.)
  • Assignments can be protagonist, antagonist, or side-kick type swaps but should be the central character in the scene.

~~~~


@Pit, would you be okay with a Used Books scene assigned to kick off the chain? (Or someone else can give you a scene.)

Okay then.

How about Page 1149 and Page 1150

You'll be swapping out Seiko. (Sorry it's not very action-packed, but I suppose it could be.)
