Maze of Many Alternate... palooza?

Post by Tobbence » Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:11 pm

So I have an idea...

I want to draw each reality from the Maze of Many. Nut's right? Each pic will have them in the window in the starting rooms. My reasons for doing this are thrice!

1. Selfish. I recently made a sea-change. Giving up my bartender ways after 20 years I have started my own freelance Illustration/Graphic Design business ( www.bughopdesigns.com ) and am looking to get my stuff out there. This is scary as all get out but I really want to make a go of this and if I can sell a couple of T-Shirts or get some commissions then I can keep doing what I love.
2. To do better. As I said I was a bartender for many years but I have been drawing since infancy. This does not mean I can't improve. And improve I must. Drawing 218 pictures will probably help.
3. Community. I thought this might be fun for us Goblinites to work on together. Thanks to the wonderful Duke BG we know that 36 realities have been allocated (2 without appearances), 86 appearances that have no allocated reality number, leaving 96 realities we have no knowledge of at all. As a community I thought we could get our creative juices flowing and have a field day making up What If! realities.

Still nut's? Yes I agree. It's not canon. It won't make a difference to anything and in the end we will just end up with a sh*t tonne of pictures... but we might have some fun along the way.

So, how to start. I have already done Reality 156 "Our" Reality. I shall post that soon. But what next? Do we start at number 1? Should we do all the allocates first?
What do ya think?

So not many takers... and to be honest, fair call. But I shall continue on, none the less.
I thought I could do this by a random number generator. If there is one on this forum, please advise. But for this first one I shall just use google.
Drum roll please.....
104! Okay so that reality in unallocated so we shall go to my handy dandy chart
Image
And randomly roll again... 33!

So we only have a blonde Minmax. I'll start with just him but if anyone would like to contribute with ideas for Forgarth and Kin or the story behind the reality feel free to post here and I shall incorporate.

And away we go :D

Okay I'm in the middle of colouring Reality 104 but when I'm not on the computer I like to do the sketches so I'll get another one under way. Drum roll..
btw if I roll a 1 or a 218 I'll do a slot that has no known association i.e. I'll make one up..
drum roll resumes..
153!
Unallocated Chart Roll... 7!
Oooh See Through Mouth Kin. This should be fun. Watch this space.

Just now stumbled across this; sounds like a lot of fun, but I'm not quite the creative type, so I guess I'll just keep an eye out and enjoy your awesome work! :D

Hmm...translucent mouth and hair, like that guy that chopped his leg off after stepping on Mr Fingers' finger...were they due to him being trapped by the demons for so long, or was there some other reason? Man, I'm going to have to find time to re-read the whole comic again, aren't I?? ;) :lol:

That's how this all started. I was reading the latest update and couldn't remember how Complains got his Demon Bits. I thought I'll just check back in the archive and get caught up. 8 hours later I had read the whole thing again :D
And I think you are getting K'seliss and Biscuit mixed up. Biscuit is the Roak Orc that Fox and Dies save from eternal damnation and has the transparent jaw.
I'm not sure if I will have Minmax and Forgarth with Kin in reality 153. Perhaps Dies and Fox? Or maybe just by herself.

Okay so I have finally finished Reality 104! At this rate I should be finished by 2032...
I shall endeavour to speed things up a bit (and now that school holidays are over that may be possible!)

Drum roll please Miss Imaginary Band Leader...
37! Our first allocated reality. It's Pretend Evil with Minmax's "Awesome evil looking cape!" So cool. And more importantly I get to do Kin in pigtails :D

Welcome aboard Wrangler of Spiders! Don't touch the cat.

Alrighty then, sketches for 37 are done so it's time to roll or the next in line.
Drum roll if you don't mind Mr Fibbles. Thank you.

93! That's an Unallocated, so refering to our Handy Dandy Chart and rolling again aaaaand...
76!
Ooooh interesting, Red Mohawk Minmax and although he looks to be alone, on closer inspection I spy one gauntleted hand so perhaps a similarly Mad Maxy type Forgath?
Remember everybody is welcome to pitch in ideas.
Reality 37 should be out within the week.

Perhaps a Greek horse hair helmet with extra horns for Forgath to match MMs aesthetic?

What are your long-term plans for the 96 unknown realities?

Do you want suggestions thrown out here? Be nice if there was a way to easily poll or vote, people could add to the list and up vote the most interesting, with you having of course final say on what you want to tackle.

Spontaneous idea, as I feel like shit:
a dimension where everyone has a severe form of a cold/flu....

Or a yeti/bigfoot dimension....

I have sketched out a few ideas for the unknown realities but 96 is a lot so any ideas are most welcome. I'm thinking I'll set up a page on my website where I can keep everything together but I want to get Elli and Danielle's permission first. And with 96 I think everyone can create a reality (or ten!) And Helmet idea is locked in :D
I love the Yeti Dimension Idea, that will definitely get sketched soon. And strangely the Man Flu dimension is growing on me the more I think about it. Rhinovirus won. Hmmm. I hope you get better soon Krulle

Btw it has now only just occurred to me that I have been calling him ForgaRth for ten years.... wow.

Thanks....

The annoying the is the follow-up throat infection I now have. Squeaky voice....


But greek helmet dimension sounds good, you could do all of that, Roman Empire dimension; Chinese monotony clothing; Norse mythology; Vikings; Cowboys; even Amazons (yes, Minmax being female too),....

There are plenty ideas, and with historical empires and mythologies you'll already have plenty to pick some ideas from.

A "cars" dimension (Minmax, Kin, Twogath being "cars"), but that would not really fit the idea of the comic anymore, but you do not stick to that for the more extremes.
And there are way more dimensions than the few numbered one so far. Remmeber, Minmax&Co tried a few million times, and each time one dimension won and left the race.... You could even delve imto that, making dimensions obviously too strong to compete in this race of "leftovers"...
