Tales from the Crib Keeper 6

Tonight I close in on the finishing of Issue 6 from the Tales from the Crib Keeper series! Tomorrow, the issue should be finished. I thought I'd share a peek at an unfinished cover and give out some 'directors comments' about the issue...

first, here's a look at the concept for the cover


or an alternate pattern?...




Okay, now for some comments about the issue...
When I started the contest for this issue, I had one goal in mind: do it a little different.
We had a great contest with lots of good ideas to choose from. I put up a journal on DA to get input from the fans. It was my attempt to get a reading on what everyone wanted to see in the issue. The feedback was wild! You can see the journal here:  http://okayokayokok.deviantart.com/journal/Tales-6-contest-judging-667326850

It didn't really have the intended effect of helping me make a decision. I chose 'Diaper embarrassment', 'Age Regression and unbirth', and 'shrinking man/giantess in diaper'

In issue 6, it is going to be a little more obvious that this is a comic with intentions to turn you on.
Based on feedback I've already gotten, I feel like every issue of Tales from the Crib Keeper should continue to have at least one Age Regression story.

I will try to update this in a few days with more comments, but I need to get back to work on the cover!

Blue Planet on the Horizon



2/7 update:
Page Layouts for Blue Planet are complete, and I'm excited to be moving into the penciling stage.
For this issue, I'll be thinking about how to include some exclusive concept sketches for pre-order and maybe even some sketches of environmental concept sketches from issue 2.

Size of the Blueberry is now listed on Amazon along with the full Wonka series.
Apocalyptic Blueberry will be for sale on Amazon soon.

**Pre-order for Blue Planet Issue 1 is expected to be ready on Feb 23**

2/17 update:
flat colors have been laid down on the first 4 pages. Getting as many pages ready for pre-order as I can! Here's a look at some flat colors:

Tales from the Crib Keeper Contest Judging info

INFO about the
Tales from the Crib Keeper Contests

This has been a fun contest to put on and it's always helped make this series really fun for me to collaborate with every one that has had an idea in the comics. For real, this contest is why I've always looked forward to doing another issue in this series.

I'm sure some of you want to know more about the decision process. Maybe you've entered every time and not had your idea chosen? Well, you aren't alone. There are tons of submissions that don't get picked. I get to choose one or two ideas out of at least 100 each time. On my end, the experience is very similar to what an agent would go through.


The contest has always existed to help us (the community) generate creative ideas about abdl material, and I hope it inspires work outside of the comic series.
The last thing I want this contest to do is to offend or anger anybody by asking for and choosing someone's idea.

WHAT I CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING:

Locations/backgrounds - are they too complicated? are they fun or bleh? I'd like to have one story in the mix with a very unique setting and one to be very typical nursery type setting you'd expect. (but that's not always the case)

What themes are featured- very dependent on circumstances= polls, other stories, etc.

How fast the story gets going OR If there a gradual buildup does it have enough to keep you turning pages? 

Unique vs broad appeal/ classic (not one over the other- just depends on the other stories chosen already)

Does it interest me? Am I feelin' it?

Can i easily envision it? Is there a scene you describe that I get excited about illustrating?


I narrow it down to about 50 ideas first, then go to 10, then a top 3 or 2 or 1. 
so if that helps you see, it's not one thing i look for in an idea.  And the story from the final bunch would be different for each issue. I admit that there is some circumstantial luck in the process.  I do not base my decision on the author, their pageviews, comments or anything like that. 
I have thought a lot about emailing people whose idea made it to the final bunch that i pick from, but I decided not to since I don't know for sure it will make people feel better. I want to tell them their idea is really good and to encourage them to write about it more because I would certainly read it. I wish I could do more, but time is something in short supply and it takes a long time to flesh out a fully finished comic.

Tales from the Crib Keeper 5 Story Contest

Here is an example of a past Submission that was chosen:
A roughly 20 year old woman works at a supermarket, sees some baby clothes, diapers, etc. in the store, wishes that she could wear them and that they'd fit her. Suddenly magic surrounds her and baby products, lift her up in the air while products grow in size. She is then stripped of clothing while extremely thick diapers in her size tape themselves on her and baby clothes put themselves on her magically. Store manager wants to know what all the commotion is. Sees worker dressed like a baby. Tells her to get back to work as it. While serving customers she needs to pee and poop and does so in her diaper. Manager sees this and takes her to his office to change her. Tells her she's much better suited working in his office to keep an eye on her. Sets up a playpen with baby toys for her while he works on his computer.

Another:
Gamer Girls
-Diapering, Age Regression, Mental Regression
-A girl visits her friend, showing her a fighting game she found buried in her closet. They put it in and start playing, choosing a "Winner Takes All" mode. They fight, with one girl winning the first round. The loser suddenly blushes and gasps, her pants being replaced by a diaper. The winning girl uses this distraction to win the next round, causing the losing girl to regress to half her age. Being mocked and embarrassed, the losing girl fights back, winning two rounds herself, causing her to gain diapers and half her age. They both then fight to a draw in the last round, causing them both to both physically and mentally regress to infants, crawling away from the game to go play something else~
Konatatan

Both of these submissions are good examples because they show the length that the idea should be. Not too long, but providing enough info to get a good understanding of the story.



Need the DETAILS again?

Your Submission:
The idea you submit should be simple- about ONE or TWO paragraphs. Your idea should not be a fully finished story because I won't have the time to read it all. If it is your finished story, you can summarize it and submit a brief (still ONE or TWO paragraph) summary. It must be your original idea. I do not own your idea if you submit it.
Here is an example of a story idea that was chosen before: 
HOW TO ENTER:
In your email SUBJECT line- write Tales 5 contest
In your email- include your DA name 
Email up to 2 of your ideas to okayokayokok@yahoo.com
Contest Details:
The contest will end the night of Sunday, July 17th 9pm Eastern Time. So, think fast!
If Chosen:
Your idea will become a collaboration with me and it will be included in Tales 5. We will finish writing your story's script together. You will also get a free issue of the whole Tales 5 comic.
