A Great Big Community Project Round-Up!

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Sept. 2, 2016

There are quite a few interesting little projects going on right now! I thought it would be nice to showcase some of them in case people are interested in getting involved. Community projects are a great way to play around with your characters, get creative with writing and drawing, and find new comics! Here are a few happening on the site right now.

Character Swapping

This is a super interesting little project! The idea is that you re-draw a scene from another DDer’s comic, replacing their character with yours and figuring out how your own character would handle the situation. There are only a few people participating in this one so far, but I think it would be really cool to get more involve

Thread is here:

DD Radio Play

The deadline for scripts is set for September 8th, but if you’re planning to submit something and want some extra time please let me know! I only have one script so far – it’s a good one, but it would be nice to have some friendly competition going!

Thread is here:

The Drunk Duck Awards

Judging and presenting are starting to get underway now, but I suspect more judges might still be needed!

The thread to sign up as a judge is in the DD Awards forums here:

The DD Fashion Forum

If you don’t already know about this project, the idea is that you get to dress up your own characters (and others’!) in all kinds of cool fashions. The most recent suggest for inspiration is: What would your character wear to the MTV Music Awards?

Thread is here:

The Halloween Cameo Capers

Hogan does a great job of explaining this so it’s best to just check out the thread, but basically the idea is that a bunch of different artists draw strips featuring their own characters and as many other characters as possible to create a giant Halloween party in comic form!
The deadline to sign up is September 25th.

@Genejoke: The comic jam? I didn't put that one in because it looked like all the page spots were already filled for both the ones going on right now.

Genejoke at 8:30AM, Sept. 4, 2016

You missed one.

@irrevenant: Clearly, I did that on purpose as an incentive for you. :P

HippieVan at 6:55PM, Sept. 2, 2016

@Mika_yi: You definitely should! Community projects are always really fun ^_^

D'oh, of *course* you promote this when I'm late getting my scene swap in. >_> (Sorry UsedBooks - I think I set myself too aggressive a schedule on my own comic..)

This is a pretty cool Idea. Sounds like fun.

Mika_yi at 4:39PM, Sept. 2, 2016

sounds like a lot of fun. I've never actually participated in anything on drunk duck before. I mainly stayed quite, but I wanted to get involved more, and meet the people that use Drunk duck, I been on this forever and most of the people who used to be on are no longer around so I may have to start getting involved to meet everyone.

Community Projects are great for honing skills and getting to know DDers. Oh, and character swap has a comic: it was an afterthought, so it's buried in the thread. But it makes it easy to look at submissions.
