-Sigh- Ya so I've been struggling all day -- all month really -- trying to come up with a protagonist for a comic I would really like to work on. As some of you know It has been a dream of mine to start my own custom sprite comic. Sadly, I can't write a good script because i can't come up with a main character I've happy with. Patrick, Frank Lee, and Lucky are all nice and all. But, their not main character material. I would really appreciate if some of you would leave me some ideas for said role. I've come up with everything from Glutinous Pigs, to grand-fatherless children, to witty and verbose foxes! It's driving me crackers and chives!

I'm going to leave now...ya...

PS. Everything is custom except for the background which is an edit.

How about...
Problem is, you haven't given us an Idea for plot, what kind of comic, any of that.

So, here goes a blind fire Idea.
Judging by the cast, you could go one of two ways. Comedy, or Action.

Comedy-
Character- Must be:
Random, Something people don't expect.
Obviously Mario Styled, or the like.
How about a goomba of sorts? But like a tall goomba? Ooooor.... a guy with a mystery block for a head?

Now Action:
Character:
Mario Styled, Badass of sorts,
Must have connections.
You could do a character, based off of mario related items. All mario Items have to relate to plumbing or the sewers to one degree or another. So, Plumbing items that are bad ass... Wrench. Wrench will be the guys main weapon. But make it a bigass wrench. Two hander if you will. Then, have him tall. Make him human/Koopa, but maybe one without a shell? Wears badass clothing, and Glasses is a plus.

Again, this is all blind fire from the hip shit. Come up with a plot of sorts first, then figure a character who best fits said plot.

Forgive me, I should have clarified some more details before I asked you to write me a paragraph or two. However, I was in a bit of a rush so I tried to make it a short as possible.

I do not want any influence from video games or the like. Otherwise the comic would not be all that custom now would it. The basic plot I had in mind was along the Comedy/Adventure genres. As I feel I can write that pretty well. I need a protagonist so that I can get started. If I can find that one missing piece of the puzzle I the rest will be only a moderate difficulty for me.

Thank you Yams for your input. I am not making a Mario comic. But your effort is appreciated!

Havn't you already made it non custom with patrick?
Anyway, putting that aside.
I was thinking something like this.
If you have patrick, why not make a whole species of characters built like patrick.
They could be all kinds of different fruit.
It'd certainly be original.

seeing that all your sprites are mario-influenced, have you thought of a human with a larger then normal mushroom cap and very long hair, enough to cover the eyes. but seeing your name is flyingmonkey....have you considered a monkey protagonist? that would actually be a good idea, maybe something like that one monkey you made a couple days/weeks ago. just some helpful insight ;D

You could always use that chibi-monkey type sprite as a main character but change it up a bit to fit around those 3.

^ I agree. But you should change up the style abit (If you want) and give him wings.
Im getting excited just thinking aout the comic.

I would try to help, but I'm not to great at plots and stuff. So I'm here to wish you luck FM!

Thank you all for your input.

Just to clear the air, i tried not to have any baring on the Mario series in any way. Yes Frank was originally a likatu. But I have changed him up and redesigned him in an attempt to distance him from the Mario series. Patrick is based off of an old drawing that I had made as a child. At the time he was called "Plush Bulb." And as far as lucky. I don't recall Irish apple people in the Mario series.

I am trying to distance myself as much as possible from Mario and Sonic in order to be as original as possible. Seeing as you all seem to identify these guys with Mario means i need to go back to the drawing board so to speak.

Once again though, thank you for your help! :)

Their nothing like the characters in the Mario/Sonic series. Well except for patrick, he looks aliitle bit like that plant from mario but its nothing major. He's still original.

And for the main character... Since all the other are kinda light and humanish. You should use somone opposite from them, because the main character should stick out from the group. He should be somthing dark, and be on all fours, Like a wolf or dark dog ect.

"Ninjas" page deleted. This is a sprite showcase, Jblack. Not a filler comic.
