Hey guys, timberking here again and I'm ready to take suggestions for new feature characters in the next line of Mishaps of Dan comics.  This time there are going to be a few more rules, but first are the obvious:

-The feature character must be from a fighting game.  (I will make an exception later in the new rules and for characters who extend from fighting games such as characters from DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Nintendo, Shonen Jump, Viz Media, etc.)

-I cannot guarantee filling every feature request.

-The character must not be one of the characters who were already featured in the comic before (i.e. Ryu, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Spiderman, etc.). Nor can it be anyone from the first round (i.e. Dee Jay, Nakoruru, Nina, etc.) because I will eventually fill those requests when I have time.

-No graphic, gore content. Yes, there is violence in Mishaps of Dan (there has to be, slapstick is one of the series' mainstays), but the violence does have a cap, death is never depicted in the Mishaps of Dan, nor is body dismemberment (with one exception)  If you really want to add gore, make it very comedic (like Mishaps of Dan 12) or something similar to Monty Python's Holy Grail.  

-No sexual content, or borderline-hentai.  I AM NOT DRAWING GENITALS FOR A MISHAPS OF DAN COMIC. Under no circumstances will I have a comic wherein the main punchline includes characters openly engaging in some sex act. This is a no brainer for some (some).  Mishaps of Dan is generally PG-13 at best.  And while Kitana does rattle off a few sex jokes once in a while (Mishaps of Dan 20, 23, and 46 for example), the main focus is not sex/nudity/erotica.  Once again, if you really want to add this kind of content, consider a cat call strip, an after-sex strip or something involving Dan/the cast dating a character.  But once again, explicit sexual content should not be focus of your feature.

-NO INSIDE JOKES.  I can't stress this enough. Make sure if you have an idea, it's relatively broad.  The point of a feature is to draw a larger audience in.  If you choose to have an established character/original character/fan character do something that is extremely niche, it will detach many readers from the joke.  (i.e. "This comic will be funny because John Crawley from Art of Fighting wanted to get a car in the sequel and Dan breaks his plane, 'Fly Boy' and he gets mad because he looks like Ryo and Ryo called him a potato one time" [true story]).

-Try to dial back pop-culture references. As much as I love pop culture jokes (and trust me I do, episode 2 of my own abridged series had a Boardwalk Empire joke) try not to go too crazy about referencing a movie, video game, anime, tv show, comic, or a cartoon.  Keep it subtle.  (This kind of goes back to no inside jokes).

-No Mary Sue/Gary Stu stories.  The established character/original character/fan character should compliment the humor of the comic, they should not be the main focus. If the idea you have diminishes the MoD cast, reconsider it.  Feel free to look at the Lost Strips to especially see examples of how featured FCs/OCs are integrated into the comic.

Here is one new rule:
-If you want your OC in a Mishaps comic, be very specific about the character's personality, the scenario he/she and the Mishaps cast are in and try to make your OC as accessible to deviantART/the internet as possible (remember, a bunch of people are going to be reading this, not just you. So please, no deep inside jokes: "This would be really funny if you know that my OC is a neat freak and likes the color blue").

And the other that directly affects rule 1:
-If you want to see a character outside of a fighting game be featured in a Mishaps comic (other game genres, fan characters, tv, comics, cartoons, anime, etc.) give an outline of the character and be specific (I don't know everything about everything) and know that I will not choose as much of these feature types compared to others.  It is harder to feature a character outside of a fighting game because that would require the viewer to have some more outside knowledge of the franchise, rather than just Street Fighter or general fighting game knowledge.  Also, try to pick a more recognizable character from that franchise so that the reader doesn't have to be extremely keen on the mythos of the series (once again, no deep inside jokes: "This would be really funny if you watched episode 5 of Baccano").
The Mishaps of Dan 53: The Lost Strips 4 by timberking
The Mishaps of Dan 53: The Lost Strips 4
Welcome to Season 3 of Mishaps of Dan! (From 51-75, hopefully.  I like separating comics into seasons leave me alone.).
Comic 53- "No Go Dojo"- Dan finally gets around to building a dojo in the states.  He decides to phone his old comrade, Wally Palladino to help fund his new dojo.  The dojo is almost finished and the grand opening is right around the corner. Hopefully...  I've been sitting on this one for too long.  So here it is :iconthreateningroar: Enjoy!
Done in with pen and coloring on Photoshop! NOW IN HIGH QUALITY AND MORE ATTENTION PAID! And added clarity!

Noah's Ark: A Happy Family by timberking
Noah's Ark: A Happy Family
The last illustration done for my six week biblical reimagining project!  I'm so glad that I'm finished with this project and it took so much of my time to finish.  Chances are, you won't be seeing any more biblical reimagining on this site.  I went for a more lighthearted children's book feel for this one.  I didn't want it to look too serious, and my professor also wanted me to do the warm and cool color translations on the left and right of the original.  Enjoy!

Noah's Ark: Cheesy 50's Advertisement
The last of the biblical reimagining assignment for my Illustration class.  I did two (so I will upload two).  I have this one which I prefer more; a cheesy 50's ad, complete with cheeky smiling and happy colors as well as a bewildered Noah (who is lolworthy).  I'm going to upload the other one soon.  Enjoy!

Anyway, I've decided to update my profile since its two years old. So I'm just going to go ahead and re-introduce myself as timberking, the author of the Mishaps of Dan series, Zephyr and a series of smaller illustration projects such as Cyndy 2.001 and Mark and Elaine. My work varies in style and can go from east to west quickly. I do do commissions when I have the opportunity and just contact me if you're interested. See you guys later!
