I’ve been wanting to do more art-related projects. After issue #3 of Captain Yuletide introduced an origin and I actually made character sheets I started thinking of adding more details about the characters and lore. Not deep or sophisticated mind you (it’s an annual superhero Christmas comic for kids) but something that gives me a proper framework to work with. This is something I’ve mentioned during Art Soundoff, creating a story bible, even if all of the information doesn’t show up in the story. At the very least it affects how you write the characters and creates some consistency. My solution?
Inspired by comic challenges like 100 Days Of Making Comics or 30 Characters In 30 Days I decided to give myself a little extra push in finally creating a Captain Yuletide story bible. In this v-log I explain how this will all go down.
In other words for the month of February, the month I’m putting this challenge to myself (this is less a February thing and more when I need to thing) I’ll be posting to Patreon the moment the video is complete, here at BW Media Spotlight in place of the Morning Article Link, and switching the video from “unlisted” to “public” as soon as I get to the computer, just as I do with Art Soundoff. When I’m done I’ll have a full grasp on the broad concepts of Captain Yuletide while hopefully leaving myself enough “wiggle room” to come up with other ideas beyond the story. Any ideas that stick will be added to the binder I’m using at a later date.
So join me tomorrow morning for a closer look as to what I plan to accomplish when it comes to this project with an overview of what I already have to work with. I may miss a couple of days due to life events but I plan to work every day that I can. Hope you find this process interesting.
