    Hey guys,

    I'm starting to get bored, so I've been drawing me a little comic to keep me occupied. It started as just something to keep me occupied, now I'm considering taking it up as a side project. But, I can't think of a name. Can any of you guys help me?

    Basics are:
    - It's about a couple of guys who play video games (much like the CAD series)
    - One guy is, for want of better words, "a dumb shit", and the other one has... well, some common sense.
    - They usually sit around playing on a games console, but sometimes mess about with computers.

    That's all I've come up with for now. Any ideas what I can call it?

    Thanks, Ben.

    EDIT: Real ting has better drawing, colour and readable text.

    EDIT 2: It's just occured to me that Ethan is pressing thin air in the pic. That's what happens when you do art that's not part of the real thing people!

    Woah, really? :laugh:


    I was thinking that anything with an obscure reference to "all your base are belong to us" would work fine :p.

    Titles like...
    -Make your time
    -Move Zig
    -What Happen
    -Set up us the bomb
    -What you say

    I can keep going and going and going... :roll:.

    I'm going to call it... Front Side Bus.

    I would have called it Ctrl+Alt+Del, but 'twas taken.

    I could publish a little news story about a normal TPU user launching his own web comic, you'd be on the front page, and you'd be in the news :).

    Sounds tempting... let me get a comic up first though... and a site.

    Yeah, that's a good idea :p.


    PM me when you have something you want publicized. I'll see to it that it's published :).

    OK, first one ever will be up shortly. It's called "Portability"

    It has everything. A Linux nerd, winking things, booze, and itchy eyelashes.
    Outlining and colouring in Photoshop now. ;)

    He, thanks... maybe... I suck at Photoshopping. I'm going to outline this one, and publish it as that until I can find a bracelet that gives me +10 colouring skill.

    Believe me... if you think your bad, then you are... I will gladly take care of the coloring if you post up a file... in a separate layer just put Red, orange etc, and ill play coloring book.
