The Legend of Ganon

Back in 2007, I started a sprite comic series called The Legend of Ganon and stopped after six comics, partially due to writer's block, partially due to my life, and partially due to NSider's closing in September 2007. (That was where I first posted them.) I recently found them and started making them again. The first few are the ones that I made in '07.

Prologue
Part I: The Buttons
Part II: C Items
Part III: The News
Part IV: The Sword
Part V: Reilly's Castle…?
Part VI: The Start Button

From here on are comics that I have made recently. I'll try to update as frequently as possible. I will make a separate post for each future comic so followers won't have to keep checking this post. However, I will also edit this post for every new comic so you won't have to look through everything to find every comic.

Part VII: LoG Returns
Part VIII: Time Machine
Part IX: iPad On the News
Part X: The Troops
Part XI: Heck Yeah
Part XII: Paradox
Part 13: Zorush
Part XIV: More Zorush
Part XV: Filler Stuff
Part XVI: More Zombies/Take 2
Part XVII: Gourmet Guy
Part XVIII: Ganon Thinks
Part XIX: Catching Up with the Mario Bros.
Part XX: More Time Machine
Part XXI: iPresent
Part XXII: Fox's Theory
Part XXIII: Issues of a Dark Lord
Part XXIV: Preparing for Ganon
Part XXV: You Can't Escape the Wait
Part XXVI: Steve Jobs' Testimony
Part XXVII: FD Zombie Tingle Time
Part XXVII: Swords With Holes



I also made some comics before this series. Here are some of them:

Tingle Time (2005)
Spoiler:  


T3H C0WZ!! (2006)
Spoiler:  


Fillers


I like to think of myself as a student of SuperBanjo when it comes to sprite comics. I was heavily influenced by his sprite comics and took tips from his tutorial. Read his works. They are my favorite sprite comics ever.

And some credits to the people who made the sprites.

Backgrounds - Debug
Ganondorf - Scorch
Dancing banana - (Uncredited)
Pikachu (before Part VII) - SemiJuggalo
Seaking - HackMew (ripped)
All other Pokémon - JoshR
DK - SemiJuggalo
Shy Guy - (Uncredited)
Anything Else Mario-related - Bacon (ripped)
Tingle - CuccosDominatePigs
Megaman - Whisp (ripped)
Sheik - Tonberry2k
Fox McCloud - qwerty1080
All other sprites custom or edited by ReillyBoy9.

If you find anything else that I missed, tell me.

Finally, for those that are members at NSider2, you can check out my comics there as well. I'm starting a FireRed Nuzlocke challenge there, so check it out if you want.

I feel that adding speech bubbles would add too much clutter. I like using the system I have now.

Also, would people rather me post comics in separate posts as I make more, or just continuously edit the first post and bump the thread?

Re: The Legend of Ganon

I'd say make a post for each new comic as you go. Most people won't go back to read the first post. Plus, doing so will keep this thread bumped. It'll just make people follow along with it better.

About your comic, I am no expert on sprite comicing what so ever but I will give you my personal feedback on it tommorrow. It's pretty late where I am and I'm pretty tired right now.

It was a good read though, it had very funny moments.

Re: The Legend of Ganon

Wow, there are some good little gems of humor in there. Like Link getting the space in the middle of the triforces and things like that. Maybe these comics could be boiled down a little bit, less quantity and the same amount of humor would have a much greater effect.

New comic, influenced partly by my ticket to see Rush live over the summer. They're playing Moving Pictures in its entirety.

Yeah, this comic's turning into a bit of an Apple bash. Macs are great for school work and stuff, but it's tough to make sprite comics without MS Paint. Also, Macs don't have Solitaire or Minesweeper.

I'm hoping I have enough creativity in me to go to 30 comics. Don't expect this series to die for at least a month or two.

Also, new comic:

Yeah, new comic. Just a filler. I'm suffering from a minor case of writer's block.

Re: The Legend of Ganon

First, I'm sorry to hear the news of Lurrrre!'s passing. I haven't been here long, but I can tell he was a very important part of this board. Rest in peace, Lurrrre!

New comic:

Re: The Legend of Ganon

All right, I'll do some explaining.

I planned on releasing another comic with an animated panel. But, with all the programs I had to use to try to get it working (sprite animations + Mac = not fun), I eventually set it aside, thinking I would get back to it. After a while (and a lack of readers), I started losing interest again, and then school started.

I actually left this place for a short while. This was the only thing I really did and it didn't seem worth staying after that loss of interest.

I decided to log on earlier today because I briefly remembered this place, and I noticed activity in the Shantytown. Thanks to that (and a recent update to Paintbrush for Mac that makes it more like MSPaint), I might be more active here again. (Of course, I still have school and stuff, so don't expect me to update often. I'll try my best, though.)

EDIT: Paintbrush does have a new tool that allows for a transparent background color when dragging/dropping, but the color recognition actually got worse, so it might be longer before I'm active again. Sorry.

Re: The Legend of Ganon

I noticed how some YouTube videos are now in 3D. I looked at how it worked and figured I'd try something: a 3D sprite animation. Because it's made out of 2D sprites, it will look more like a diorama than a 3D animation, but it's 3D. Maybe one day, people will make 3D sprites.

I apologize for the quality. I still don't have a good animation program (or a good paint program because Macs are stupid). Anyway, to view it, cross your eyes until the two images meet in the middle.



It's not difficult to make, but it requires some effort and time.

Step 1: Think of what you want to see in 2D. If there's a specific formation involved, go to step 2. If not (like the one above), just place everything how you normally would and skip to step 3.

Step 2: If there's a specific formation involved, anyone in the front should be shifted to the left a few pixels. The more you shift, the further to the front it will appear. I'll explain in the next step.

Step 3: Take the exact same panel on the right, with a few pixels shifted over to the right. The farther to the right you set, the greater the 3D effect. For example, in the above animation (comparing the right frame to the left), I have the background still, Omochao shifted over 3 pixels, Ganondorf 4, and the ground 6. Repeat for each frame.

Step 4: This is optional, but you might want to double the size. It makes it easier to focus and sometimes, the image appears smaller because you're viewing it cross-eyed. However, you don't have to. It will look just fine if you don't double the size.

Re: The Legend of Ganon

I finally finished the next comic.



To celebrate… 3D VICTORY DANCE!!



Again, you're going to have to cross your eyes to view this until the two panels line up.

Also, if you want, you can check my comics out on NSider2. My thread isn't much different, but there are some other good comics there.

Re: The Legend of Ganon

love the HUD. And the gormet guy sprite. And the big text when people are yelling. Your comics have a lot of personality. I like.
