PostSubject: What's this?! Someone doing something other than computer games?!   Sun Nov 08, 2009 4:01 pm

I thought I would use this opportunity to shamelessly self promote a little project I have going on at DrunkDuck.com.

Basically, I've entered into a tournament style event, where my comic character fights other characters until one is voted the winner. It's in its early stages at the moment, but I've got my first pages up, and I thought some of you may want to support me by following the fight and maybe even vote for me Very Happy.

You can find the first pages here:

http://www.drunkduck.com/community/view_topic.php?tid=51179&cid=237

The rest of the fights are here:

http://www.drunkduck.com/community/view_category.php?cid=237&tid=51182

(The ones highlighted in red are the current battles, although some have yet to begin)


Okay, so now for some background. The character I've entered is as follows:



Lord Torturemire

Background:
After working fifteen millenia fulltime as senior administrator to Hades, Arnold Torturemire (as he was then known) handed in his letter of resignation and started to travel the world. This posed some problems - as any servent of Hades can tell you, it can be a bugger getting seats in restaurants (and the constant persecution by holy water wielding warriors is not appreciated either. However, during a prolonged hike through the Derbyshire Countryside, he met a beautiful enchanting woman. He promptly killed her, had an evil spirit inhabit her body. They married, and three short years later, Torturemire inherited the Lordship of Tockston. Then he got bored and decided to beat people up.

Powers/Weapons:
Lord Torturemire has 4 spidery legs, with which he can use to rake at people. He's also about as strong as the world's strongest normal mortal on steroids. With his staff he can summon the forces of darkness - or at least those forces that are weak enough to be under his control (minor spirits, a dark tendril or two, that kind of thing) and also stab things with the pointy end. He also has an axe. You can use your imagination for that one.

Weaknesses/Fears:
Lord Torturemire, like all evil beings, is susceptable to any manner of holy objects. Any overly bright lights may singe or burn his flesh. He also has a completely rational fear of kittens (those litte buggers - they'd kill you soon as look at you). Other than that, his legs aren't as strong as the rest of his body.



In the first round, he is facing an opponent named Cat-Man-Chibi-Thing (don't ask - I don't know the answer) inside the body of an old man called Mr Fillibaster, Fantastic Voyage style.

Oh yeah, and my alias on the site is 'Sticking'.

Comic tournaments... DeviantArt has lots of them going on, even for writers. I have joined one last year, but I didn't get past the third round. You can see my entries over on here http://thy-robocop.deviantart.com/ , under the Desire tag.

I've also joined this club http://ocbz.deviantart.com/ , where you can brawl against any other guy on the roster every time you like, and it organizes cross medium tournaments. It's worth joining, believe me.

Thanks for having a look guys. How serious are the Deviantart brawls then? Because the DrunkDuck ones are fairly ridiculous (and that's why I love em Very Happy). My artistic talent I have to say is not too great, but where I hope I succeed is with my strange sense of humour. As I like to say: My comics have more gags than an S&M store. But I digress. The battles on DrunkDuck are usually won on a humor basis, rather than that of who has the best artistic talent. I don't know if I'd even enter something like this again, but for the meantime it is fun!

Also, Laurian, if you dare support my opponent, Lord Torturmire's minions will be sent after you! Twisted Evil

:O Kittens for the blood god people, kittens for the blood god.

Never under estimate the power that a kitten has; they can kill goblins! Tear their eyes out from a mile away, steal their cotton socks and use it as a disguise... they're epic creatures.

Also, on a more related note, i like them drawings, Lord Torturmire has my full support. I was like WTF at first, then I was like, FTW.

Hahaha. On the kitten issue, I completely forgot that I had written that in there (I did a copy and paste job with the bio text). So I apologise - there will be no sending of demonic forces....for now....

Hmm, if my character is scared of kittens, would he be scared of the Cat-Man-Chibi-Thing...? I'm starting to think the person who organised the line up has got it in for me. No matter, I can just say that Lord Tortumire is only scared of kittens that are non anthropomorphic Very Happy Problem solved.
