Hello everyone! As previously mentioned, I'm gonna be going on break for a little bit. I'm entering the WST again! It was fun last time I did it and it was a nice learning experience so I'm hoping to have fun again this time around. We'll see how it goes!

I might - keyword might - post stuff around here if I get a chance to make something, but again, all my focus is gonna be on the WST. So chances are I'm also going to be on break for a bit after I'm done with the WST, to get myself a buffer again - I'm all out right now! If you wanna contact me, I'm usually on Discord, or you could post around here and I'll probably reply. (Though this update'll go down once I get back.)

TL;DR- Until I get back from the WST (and rebuilding buffer), no updates. See you guys around!

Sidebar, totally unrelated: I actually updated the Scar Map. You can see it here or through its link on the Other Things page.

Ket you derp you won't have a body period by the end of the comic, you'll just be a disembodied voice making sarcastic remarks about the panel spacing

I'm looking around, but I can't figure out what WST is. From context, I'm guessing a collab comic. Mind expanding on WST for those of us who don't know what you're talking about?

What's WST?

The World Spriters' Tournament (or WST for short) is an event that's hosted annually over on the Middle Ground. Each year, people will enter the tournament, making a comic (or comics) about who they're entering and why that character is entering, and sometimes what that person wants out of the tournament (the grand prize is a wish).

The format is simple - when a round starts, the host will post the matchups and the arena. The authors taking part will then make a series of comics featuring their character fighting their opponents' character. Once a round is over (and hopefully everyone's made and submitted their comics), people on the forum will vote on the matches, picking which side they liked more based on things like the comic's visual quality (effects, panels, etc), the writing (was it a balanced fight? was one side dominating things? if the latter, did it seem realistic and help the narrative of that fight or was it just the author showing off?), and so on (some voters will actually dock points if you failed or almost failed to get your pages in on time).

I first entered it two years ago (2015) with Rena and wound up coming out on top, and I had a blast taking part, so I figured I'd try again this year with a different character and see how far I got.

@TheJGamer- Sign-ups haven't opened yet but I'll probably put up a little thingie when they do to let you guys know.
@SonicComix1- When you have nothing better to do than talk badly about people on the internet like human trash

Can you direct me to the site that they've hosted and or are going to host it on? I've looked around, but the closest I can find is 2013.

@darlit glitch- Hilarious fun fact- that's actually sort of semi-intentional. See, in 2014, the tourney was hosted by someone else. That person... well, they never quite finished the tournament, so Year 2014 never went up. Then 2015 happened (and finished), but because 2014 wasn't up...

Well, either way, if you want to do a bit of binging, http://www.mgcomics.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=26 this is the sub-forum where any WST related stuff goes. You can take a look around if you want to get an idea of what past tournaments were like.

@Shard: Thanks! I'd hadn't even heard of wst until now, so it's really got my interest peaked!

Aww, dangit. I wanted to use my recolored Megaman sprite sheet! Guess I'll use my crappy custom sprites then, LOL.

Good thing the deadline is July.

Aye! Oh man! How long have I been out of the game, lol. It's great to see you're doing well, Shard. Hope things are still great, and all. Can't wait to see more from you, bud!

Hmmmmm...

So, by any chance, have you played any of the Blazblue games, Niv?
