This one's for you, Crunchyroll!



How did you get so many different faces? None of those come with the US version... Are you editing you comics afterwards and drawing them your self?

I don't know what you mean, the Trial doesn't have the full range of faces, but the full version should. Can you give an example of which faces aren't used in the full version? Like which panel and character?

Or do you have the trial?

After you highlighted that ship bridge, there was only one thing I could think of ... so I had to do it:

I can confirm that all faces Dragoshi1 has depicted are in the full english version. For those exaggerated faces such as with the white circles, you need a model with the associated "face type". Look at the preset characters for an example.

Edit: Unless maybe you've only noticed "face type", and have overlooked the "Change Face" feature for expression, which is most easily accessed by right-clicking on a placed and selected character.

Good job!
In fact I don't get what makes these memes so popular among foreign people. "All your base..." may be its wrong grammar. But I have no idea why "Nyan cat" is so popular? Yes, i love the melody and a cat whose body is made of jam toast is hilarious. But what was it that made this meme loved by so many people?

I have the full english version and we don't have access to any faces that are similar to the ones below. All of ours are somewhat normal looking we don't have outrageous anime faces. We don't even have eyes or mouths similar.



EDIT: Never mind I found them! Thanks

^ That worked for me, I had no idea I needed to change the base face before I could change the expression.

Thanks again, for all those links! And thanks for the compliment.

Yes, Zero Wing uses bad english. It is not a natural way to talk.
"Nyan Cat" you already know what you need. The song is catchy/addictive, its body is ridiculous/funny, and it is annoying/tiresome (yes, that adds to its popularity). Also, being a "simple" image, video, and song makes it easy to imitate and parody, so many people can easily make their own version.

My first longer comic. Since there aren't any night scenes for the roof I had to find alot of different ways to use the 2D roof objects. I even used it as the side of the building in the last panel. But for making buildings ComiPo is not., took me ages to get that roof access door right (though I will admit, that was before i figured out there was the option to re-size the object without resizing the frame).







This wont end well...

And heres something for people to use. If your having a hard time coming up with something for your story (or even having a hard time coming up with a story) then I recommend all the randomized generators on this site here:

I had been wondering about why there was the option to change the default facial expression even though you were able to change the expression later, that explains it. Though it's kind of bothersome that you need to make 2 - 3 versions of the same character with differing facial settings.

Well done, I like your comic. It is well depicted (I look forward to more).
I do agree it is bothersome to duplicate a character just to do those silly faces, but when considering the other face types, I think it does well to cut one step out of the process, since each face type has a complete library of faces (do not get confused by the preview face you're clicking to make your selection). Plus the "Change Model" feature does well to preserve everything important if you've already begun working, and later want the other face type (this scenario has already happened for me, it went well).

I am not sure if its appropriate but I felt that the ComiPo! english community deserved a dedicated message board beyond this post and the official facebook page to share information and works they have created.

So I started ComiPoForums.com and worked on consolidating some of the resources and information that was already posted. I just launched the site today so it is going to be rather empty but I invite everyone here to sign up and help build a english based community around ComiPo where we can share our comics and resources we find.

To the CrunchyRoll admins, if this is not allowed I apologize and ask that you remove this post.

To everyone else sign up and enjoy!
