Default Musing....

So, I've got a plan in my mind - a 40k webcomic. My personal drawing skills are tightening up (as aposed to simply doodling and making big explosions of lead) but I want them to improve more - I want to be a swiss army knife of an artist. One of the things that keeps me tripping up is that I can do one things brilliantly - making works based on emotion and expression, but I can't do the other side of things - making neat, controlled drawings.

So, what am I ranting about? Iv'e had this idea of doing loads of concept art based on 40k. Just drawings about anything - space marines, orks, tau etc. But I thought - whats the point? All that they can be is things for my own amusement and to help with my Uni degree.

However, the thought struck me - why not use them to make a web comic?

The idea I have is fairly large - start from the beggining of the 40k timeline with the C'tan and the Old ones and go throughout history to the present day. Why? it means that the different races in the story keep changing and flowing. We go from the Necrons, to the eldar and Orks, then introduce humans onto the scene, watch humans kill humans, throw tyranids in, and then have tau towards the end. During this timeline specific events will be focused on, such as the horus heresy, the downfall of the eldar, the wars for armageddon.

However - I have one main stumbling block. Im a shite writer. I need some people to write stuff, scripts and what have you.

Any input guys?

Do you want it to be funny or engaging or accurate?

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Although, on second thoughts, I still need to know if I have the time.

I think you should draw the Warmachine / Hordes webcomic I've been working on a plot for.
