Ok so in general i'll do anything, you took the time to fill out the survey, I'll take the time to appease your needs.
Basic rules are this:

It can be Black and White or colour, please specify.

If colour is chosen i generally colour on PS, but i have markers avaliable if you so desire, if you want something different just ask im hardly being strict haha.

I think i'll stick to A3 being the biggest, but you can specify if you want something random, like a CD cover or...avatar or..oh i don't know, whatever.

I'd prefer not to do fanart, not because i don't like [insert character], but rather i'm likely to ruin it. I'm terrible at copying people, BUT if you have a character and you REALLY want it done, fine im not bothered, i'll try my best.

You can ask for anything the only major exception is pornographic images, i mean a bit of implication is always fun, and im fine with that, but im not about to draw you some furry porn. Unless i was payed. a LOT. If you are worried your image might be considered too spicy, ask anyway and i'll let you know. We can work from there, im always up for negotiation.

Tying in with the above rule, don't be afraid to ask me for something that sounds hard or complex, if its simply impossible we'll negotiate, but something crazy could be fun, and im always up for action :D
And anyway it's all practice in the end!

Alright heres the deal, i have no idea how many people would even WANT me to draw them a picture. SO, depending on how many people reply i'll work out how long it will take me, and even with that, some people might go complex, some people might go simple and so each persons will take a different time. suffice to say when it's done it will be done.

FIRST IN FIRST SERVED. The first person to reply AND tell me what they want will have their image done first. I may do the next persons WHILE doing that first if the next persons is super simple or something, but in general you'll be done in order.

OH and you don't have to have an image done if you don't want one, im hoping its a bit of an incentive though >.>

FINALLY I reserve the right to decline ANYTHING asked of me, and if the need be i will change the rules to fit. I can't see why though, and generally if i decline i'll just work something out that is as similar as possible.

Whee this should be fun!

Oh yes...
If anyone actually wanted a haiku, (or some other bit o' writing) from DL or I, instead of art, we'll oblige you--really though, this is a great opportunity for some excellent custom artwork, if you've been reading the comic.
I mean, unless you're blind, (in which case, I'm not sure how you'd read the comic anyways), the the art is much cooler, at least in my mind.

OH--and an amusing fact for all of ye:
I just went and removed all of the old filler from the main archive, (it will be added to the extras section in the near future, so that anyone who reads through the comic can do it more smoothly), and you know what? Counting the 'Happy Birthday' strip, the last comic of Chapter 1 is now exactly #50 in the archive. XD

Quit trying to get out of it!
You have to embrace the writing of the requests En! Don't try and shove it all on to Pyroman! XD

Anyways, I blame you for our comic not being accessible to the blind, because that was totally your job, FOR SHAME! XP

Anyways, as a bit of explanation, that off screen speech bubble comes from an AI-character, the admin of the Anime Invasion (remember, this was based on a forum), who we literally did make too important to throw in with the grunt soldiers. The result being, that while I can promise an important role once introduced, it's probably going to take longer then any of us would like it to... Sorry. :(

14. a chapter in a year is like light-speed!!! but no, pacing is fine, you guys manage to keep us entertained whenever there are no comic updates ^_^

I'd like a picture of either ninja and traekios having an epic battle or of a traekios style option page with ninja as the character (whichever you'd enjoy drawing more)

Thanks for the survey, it's an awesome idea!! *excited about art*

14. S'all good.

I would like a picture of a pathetic-looking bunny rabbit, with maybe an owl trying to EAT IT :O. Or Ninja trying to be a bunny rabbit! Basically I like bunny rabbits is what I am saying here. Whichever you choose is fine, and black and white is fine too! =D Awright.

Lin (Guest), July 18th, 2008, 10:30 am

Wee ar.. uh I mean survey! Heh!~
1. 1024 by 768 pixels
2. Firefox
3. No I like them the way they are!!!
4. I like both so it is no issue to me... although I prefer the second!*huddles incase of large thrown objects*
5. I love the colors!!!
6. I like the first font!
7. Hehehe.... It is really a toss-up between Shashu and DL! Huzzah for no more bathroom hogs and for the wonder that is Busland!!! XD
8. Hmmm.... That lady at the haunted house... her hair scared the bejeezus outta me!
9. Just a little... in the beginning the hair on some of the characters was just to similar then I got past it!
10. I love the writing! I find it highly entertaining.
11. Overall the art has a consistent feel and is done well.
12. All I can say is that I like it, and am looking forward to the day the things mentioned in comic one come to pass!
13. No I am pretty sure I get it. It is pretty random, but that adds to the entertainment rather than detracting like it does with some webcomics.
14. Hmm I would have liked to see more of the haunted house drama and stuff about Busland!

Hmmm art... Love art... I'd want DL battling the Backalian rebelion! Huzzah teepee-ing! If that is too much to ask then anything would be fine!

Pyroman, July 19th, 2008, 8:44 pm

Shadow, would you like a picture for those answers?

Oh and as a side note to anyoen else interested, the image does not have to relate to Anime Invasion.

your shadow, July 20th, 2008, 1:39 pm

whoops, i forgot about that, ok i think it would be funny if one of the lesser charters tryed to look like ninja(you know to look cooler), and ninja finds out and gets mad, or does something about it

17AutumnLeaves, July 23rd, 2008, 1:29 am

Since you asked so nicely Alex, here's my survey:
1) 1024/768
2) Firefox
3) Definitely Not
4) ...
5) Colour's fine, but it's been mostly black 'n' white so far, so I'd keep it mostly that way.
6) The font for the comics themselves is great, and you seem to have fixed any qualms I may have had with the comment-textiness (or maybe I was imagining things again when I thought there was a problem...)
7)Ninja, truly, he/she/it/they is the epitome of awesomeness
8)...if any, I'd say EN (sorry...), but that's least favourite, not that I don't like him
9) Nope, I just can't remember their names half the time...
10) not particularly, it's been good so far, perhaps you could make the story a tad snappier?
11) Alex, you know me, do you really need to ask that? It's better than almost all of the other Webcomic's i've seen, and at the very least at the same level.
12)the 'comic' bit on the end annoyed me until I bookmarked it, since I'd always get the url wrong, but other than that, nope.
13) *see 10*
14) Pacing as in updateage? I'd say update more regularly, and less sporadic bursts of activity, although I know the reasons behind this, and that It's not really your fault.
Pacing as in Storyline? I'd suggest making the story go faster, and have more stuff happen, as so far not much has really been achieved.

As far as requests go, I would find a random cameosam/pyromafk cameo snuck into a later chapter amusing.

En..., July 23rd, 2008, 10:40 pm

Oh! You wound me, sir!
Well, not really...XD

Thanks for your opinion on the writing! Just out of clarification, though--by a 'snappier' story, do you mean just, quicker pacing, like you said in 14, or something else?

17AutumnLeaves, July 24th, 2008, 2:03 am

Sorry if it sounded harsh, I just wanted to be a hopefully useful critique.
Anyhow,yes, It would be better if the story progressed faster and more happenings happened, as so far not much has really been achieved. It's still an excellent webcomic, but it could be improved.

En..., July 24th, 2008, 9:55 am

Harsh? ^^
Naaah--We can take it, no worries there. I was just making sure that I got your meaning right. Thanks for the critique!

faceofdoomness, December 16th, 2008, 10:59 pm

1) 1280x800
2) Mozilla Firefox
3) Naww they're the perfect size.
4) Well though its doesn't matter as of now (seeing as how its been a long time since this page has been created) toned.. definitely tones.
6) First one. Its better. :B
7) I don't like to have one favorite characters, each of the characters in this webcomic are all interesting and likable. But if I had to choose one that stood out, it would have to be Ninja.
8) None, all the characters are wonderful.
9) Naww.
10) So far I like how the story is paced... and since I'm not much of a writer I probably can't judge the writing very well. I like it so far though.
11) The art is very well done and stuff. Can't really think of something that can be improved...
12)Perhaps a bit more of a readable text?
13) Naw, its good.
14) As I have said, its well paced and well thought out. >:{D
