Riot Shell is the (online) comic, which has the unique ability to have the most fan-support in the business, simply because fans themselves create, support, pencil and publish the comic. Nicita Design’s Adrian Nicita created a platform (http://www.comicidolonline.com) for aspiring comic book artists to strud their stuff and via this platform chapter after chapter will become available to the fans. Comic Idol Online lets the fans decide which page, creator and storyline will be the future of Riot Shell.
After many months of hard work, the launch of the Comic Idol website is announced; a place where fans can share their art and chat with people of similar interests.
Per page and chapter a contest will open up, in which artists can upload their artwork and where fans can vote and choose! Every action on the site earns credits/points which will determine the ongoing adventures of Riot Shell.
This is what mastermind Adrian Nicita has to say about the next contest which will open on the 7th of May and closes on 1st of June:
“This is where the hard part starts! You -the fans- need to continue the story of Riot Shell after her amazing kick-off by artist Martin Möntiel (to be read online at http://www.comicidolonline.com) where we saw her standing in the debris!
In the enclosed image is a list of the characters you can use to get the ball rolling!
Once the contest opens on the 7th you are free to upload your art as soon as it done and people can start voting.
So the quicker you get your art up the more votes you can get! You can also come back and vote hourly so if there are two artwork pieces you want to vote for… no prob and share the love =).
All the characters mentioned are villains. (to see a image of the villains go to this link – http://comicidolonline.com/story.aspx?s=41 )
The Stalkers are being controlled from a unknown villain which we will reveal soon so if you want to draw them in please use a black silhouette.
All other characters with weapons on their arms do not have the same abiitly as Riot Shell. They only have the one weapon you will draw and it does not change. The big baddie The Octopus has two guns on his arms which can transform from gun to arm.
