    Thanks, Im planning on having a plot, and it may get serious later, but for now I'm just going to keep it simple and short like this.

    No advanced plot required

    You don't need a full script/ plot to get started. You just need a concept & the personalities of the main cast, really. I wing my comic almost completely. It started when I was working on my original Sig when I joined the site a few months ago. I wound up putting Masterpiece Voltron & FansProject's Bruticus next to each other for it, intending to spoof Funnies splash panels (talking about them fighting, but not even considering doing it), & a couple ideas hit me: namely the dialog for the Decepticons to go over the original Legend of Voltron, & then for the "real" Origin of Voltron. Then I decided to reveiw Bruticus as part of the comic, which was going to be the starting point, but I wound up doing a battle before...

    From there it's taken off, w/ very little planning before I sit down to start shooting panels each update. I make sure I know what I want the update to be about, & how it links up w/ what's happened so far, but unless the direction requires a bit of advanced planning (like when I had Shockwave contact Starscream, I needed to work out camera angles for where the monitor was going to be), or if I want to set special stuff up for characters for later (like the mystery voice that appeared at the end of Chapter 1 & who it was wasn't revealed until 4 updates later), I otherwise don't really plan much. I just think "oh, a battle would work here" & get to work on shooting a battle or "I think I'll show what the Predacons are up to" & do something w/ them.

    Once I had my concept of Voltron helping the Animated Elite Guard fight the Decepticons on Planet Arus, winging everything else has been easy... Though, I'm 17 updats in, & Arus won't even be landed on for at least another 4 updates...

    The only bits that have been scripted were the Legends of Voltron, which were created before I got started, AS the underlying concept.

    So long as you have a direction & characterizations (mine are show personaliteis: Classics -- G1 --, Animated & Beast Wars, for the most part), you can develop the plot as you go. Granted, a proper plot does help...
