(I don't know if he's your kind of writer, but I always enjoy Terry Pratchett's stories - the books at bit more than the dramas based on them, but they do have that sort of "beyond the scope of things" absurdity that Douglas Adams was always trying to insert into Doctor Who.)
Heh- I was just thinking, you avoided getting Prof Chronis from Shada into the story <g> but since Douglas Adams went ahead and put the Prof into his other stories with the holistic detective (unaware BBC had released Shada with Tom Baker narrating (mostly reading thru the parts of the script that were never shot) you did avoid one more parallel universe conundrum as well.
I have read a book of his. I did enjoy it, but I found it an odd mix of hit and miss humour. It could just be the time in my life when I read it, but I found Douglas Adams made me laugh and laugh (I first read his stuff in my late teens and early 20s) and Pratchett either made me smile or roll my eyes because it seemed to laboured an attempt (I read it sometime this past year).
As for Chronotis, alas, as I said, I can't get EVERYONE in there. I did think of him, though.
Your style of drawing is very attractive. Did you develop it on your own, or is it a specific style? Comics are fun to me, and I'd like to begin making my own, but normal anime/manga doesn't have any appeal to me and I can't draw Western art - it's too realistic. But your style seems perfectly in the middle, somewhat simple to draw, but not completely out of porportion. I was wondering if it had any kind of name I could look up classes for, or if it's something you developed on your own.
That is very sweet and flattering, thank you. I'm sorry to report, however, that my style is one I've developed on my own. It sometimes delights me and sometimes frustrates me, but it's mine and that's what I do. It evolves quickly too, so drawings I do now won't look much like drawings I did when I started these comics. Compare page 1 and page 167 of "The 10 Doctors" or page 3 and page 940 of YAFGC. It could almost be different people entirely.
I feel that my greatest influences were Warner Bros. Bugs Bunny cartoons (esp.the Coyote), Archie comics (that's where I learned how to draw the female body!) and all the shows I've worked on over the years. When you spend three months forced to draw in a particular style, you wind up keeping what you liked and dumping the rest. Arthur, Mona the Vampire, Animal Crackers, Caillou (though I think I kept none of that), Da Jammies, Lunar Jim, Bo on the Go, Animal Mechanicals... I've never been able to emulate the Manga style, I tried a few times and just never was comfortable with it.
You'll find as you go that you'll adopt what you like and you'll evolve. Your evolution will happen faster the more often you draw. So for me, a guy who spends the working day (9-5 generally) drawing constantly, my stuff evolves rather rapidly.
So my advise is: DRAW DRAW DRAW. Bring a pencil to restaurants and doodle jokes on napkins and placemats. Always bring a sketchbook with you and doodle people on the bus or cartoon situations that happen to you throughout the day. The more you do the better you'll get and you'll always always always evolve.
