Second Life As Comic Creator

By | Thursday, June 18, 2009 2 comments
Second Life, as I've noted before, is an open-ended online tool that people can use in to achieve a variety of objectives. People can use it to achieve a wide variety of ends, from adventurous role-playing games to conventions to storytelling.I've also seen Second Life used specifically to create artwork for comics, precluding the need for a creator to be illustratively inclined. However, doing comics with a larger cast becomes increasingly more difficult as you add more characters -- you in fact need a different person logging in and posing for each character, much like you need separate actors for a film or TV show. To that end, Saffia Widdershins and Annechen Lowey are holding a casting call for Second Life residents for their new comic series The Quest for the Golden Prim. Details can be found here. I'm not sure if I personally have the time to devote to such an endeavor, but I'll certainly be curious to see it develop, both the process and the end result. The deadline for applications is Sunday, June 21.

"It is I, the Brain, attempting to take over the World by seizing control of the Kleefeld on Comics juggernaut." "Narf! Gee Brain do you think I can wear Sean's hat when we seize control?"
"Be quite Pinky or you'll tip off the Cleeve-lander as to our plan. And no he needs that hat to compensate for the volumous space left by the rapid decline in active of his hair follicle."
"Narf! Sorry Brain. I'll be as quite as a church mouse in a Nerf gun fight."

All I have to say, Tito, is that it's a good thing I have access to the mysterious powers of Mr. X to aid me in such a takeover! ;)
