Hi! :)

I was really bored, so I decided to try that screenshot comic thing. I don't think it's the right way to do it... Anyway, I tried... :P

Story and the actual comic in the next post. ((Only because I cannot edit the original post, and I'm sure I'll do a dozen mistakes. :P))

So please wait for the next post. :) See ya there! :)

DNR!! please...

~A few thing first~

Rhaeyne and Vanilia are siblings. Vanilia is the older, Rhaeyne is the younger. Vani is the cool and outgoing, while Rae is the quiet introvert. They love each other despite the fact that their personalities couldn't be more different.

They were born and raised ni Berk, and live there until this day. :)

 

((Okay, other screenshot comics I've seen had the text between the pictures (as a normal comic) but I realized 40 picture would be waaay to much for the forum, so I made collages of them. But this way, I can't do that first option. So I'll just briefly tell the idea, and everyone can imagine the exact dialog themselves. :P))

 

~The story~

Rhaeyne woke up late as always. Her parents already left and her sister almost too. So she just ate a fast breakfast, and mounted the impatient Nightsky. They flew to the school, so have their daily trainig. They just came out of Thunder Run Racing, when Hiccup called them. He told that in injured or lost dragon in the Wilderness scares the students. Rhaeyne flew there, and found the Scuttleclaw. Luckily, she was healthy. But she did seem lost. Rhaeyne wanted to help on the poor dragon, but Scuttleclaw island was just soo far, she was too afraid to do that. So she searched for her sister, making sure the dragon follows them. She found her at the Berk docks. Luckily, Sunshine and Vani just finished their jobs, so she helped her sister gladly. Rhaeyne stayed in Berk docks, relaxing and playing with Sky, while Vani took the Scuttleclaw home. When they both got home, Vanilia told Rhaeyne that the dragon was happy to be back. They both went to sleep.

 

((Not too original and not necesseraly good, but it was fun to make. :P Also, I'm really sorry for possible grammar mistakes. (I'm sure there's a billion.) I'm not English. :P))

 

~The comic~

 

I hope you enjoyed. ^_^

Great idea!

I like your comic! It's a great story, and don't worry about whether it's been done to death, pretty much everything worthwhile has :)

 

Now I realize that you realize this, but it does get tedious flipping from the comic to the storyline when I'm wondering what's going on. A good way to fix this would be adding lines of text underneath, either narrating or just a short phrase in dialogue. It doesn't have to be a lot, just a small thing so your readers know what's going on. For example, "I know, Nightsky, I'm coming! Just don't flame the house- Nightsky! Stop it!" or "Yes! Won again!"

 

If you're worried about length, you might want to eliminate some of the more redundant pictures, such as ones that were very similar to others right next to it, or you could put them together with only one line of text underneath.

 

Lastly, I'd like to compliment you on your photography skills. Every time I try to take a picture, I end up getting either horrible lighting, a bad pose, or just my dragon getting so bored that they fall asleep! And then there's some people who can screenshot while flying and change the perspective. How??!

Clap clap

Oh wow, I didn't even notice that until now. Double kudos for figuring out how to make that work!

 

But seriously though, how do you screenshot while flying? Every time I try, it just switches the perspective back to normal.

Nightsky is gone...where are you?? I swear he was here a sec ago

How do I make those screenshots?? Well it looks certainly funny!! :D :D ((And requires 10 year with piano, if you have increadibly small hands like me. :D))

First, you stop before the background you want. Second, you find the angle, you want to take the screenshot. Here comes the tricky part. :D You push they key combination PLUS don't let go of the mouse... :D :D Yeah, it kinda looks like your hands are doing some kinda weird yoga pose... :D :D And than try a billion time until you get the required position of the wings/head. :D ((Than copy it into a program you like to use. I use Irfanwiev. :P))

I hope this helped.. :D ((Although I highly doubt that... :D))
