Samurai Champloo Anthology Pow-Wow
1. As of tonight, the doujinshi is 10 pages long! :D Thanks for all the submissions so far, you guys! I can't wait to see how the final product wraps up. |
2. The book still has no title. With the cover laid out the way it is, the title needs to be 1~4 words, something pretty short and punchy. I've been juggling the following:
Some Live Some Die
Everybody's A Bastard
By The Sword
but nothing's really jumping out. If y'all have any ideas or preferences, please post 'em here!
Just digging through Battle Cry:
Sharp like an edge
World out of order
I like "By the Sword" and "World Out of Order."
Why not Battle Cry? The anthology itself is a collective fandom battle cry, and each story is an individual battle cry, so it seems appropriate.
Otherwise, I'm leaning towards Everybody's A Bastard, myself. :-P
There's already a Japanese doujinshi entitled "Battle Cry", but that shouldn't make any difference.
I kinda like that idea... hmmmmmmmmmm!
Hm. I'm leaning towards World Out Of Order, myself....
But. Looks like when I'm all finished I'll be adding another 5 pages to your total. At least, I don't think it's going to grow more.... (Someday I'll tell all about the 9 page first draft of a story that ended up at 32 when the second draft was done....)
And as a postscript, I just have to add that Mugen is hard to draw. At least, for me....
OK. Back to inking Hama-urii. :)
Yeah, he's hard for me, too - it's that damn jawline of his. With those character designs, the mouth sits so close to the chin at certain angles and argha arghargahr.
Also, his hair is the devil.
I can't wait to see it when it's done!
I think TL;CR is the best possible title. Probably doesn't jive with your cover graphic though.

I think I'm going to go with "Battle Cry", since it fits in the same word-space as (and rhymes with!) the title of the film whose poster I referenced for the colour palette and outfits.
