From line art to color…
Fare thee well my bright star
I watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
As you can see by that last post, eventually I’m planning to go back and finesse the images in the prologue, since the difference in quality between it and the rest of the story is noticeable.
Howdy. So as a few of you are aware, Astonishers has a companion blog, Tales of the Astonishers. Basically, Tales is a collection of one-shot, first-person vignettes highlighting different characters in the Astonishers universe. What some of you might not be aware of, however, is that any of you can contribute to it! The submit box is currently open and accepting pictures, text stories, and video.
But that’s not all. If you create an OC for the Astonishers universe and draw up a Tales-style post about them, and then I approve the submission and put it on the blog, your character is canon. They’ll officially be part of the story’s universe.
But that’s still not all. A lot of you have been messaging me about voice acting, and here’s the thing: there are going to be a lot of characters, both created by myself and the readers, showing up on Tales that will need a voice. So there could be literally hundreds of opportunities for voice acting as the story grows.
If you’re interested, start submitting some stories! And while it may be difficult to come up with original characters when it’s this early in the main story, here’s something to help you out.
Let’s go build a superhero universe together!
Reblogging for anyone that missed it!
Story time: so even before this iteration of Astonishers launched, the domain name astonishers.com was already taken. But to add insult to injury the site isn’t actually being used. If you go to the site the only thing on it is a wordless powerpoint presentation containing nothing but stock photos of southeast Asia. Why? For what purpose? We just don’t know.
That would definitely count!
Most characters only have one ability, but they can gain a secondary ability if something triggers it mentally (like trauma or extensive meditation), though it’s not common. Unless you’re Helene.
Though in her case having centuries of wisdom passed down to her probably helps.
