Hello everyone, gonna advertise a comic battle forum called Super Paint Brawl (SPB).
What is SPB?
Super Paint Brawl is an artist forum where you make Original Characters (OCs) called “Brawlers” and have them interact with other people's Brawlers by drawing comics. You can make them fight or build a story centered around these brawlers, depending on the theme of a thread you're posting in. It’s basically like comic based RP'ing. It's fun and productive way to just draw and make comics with other people, either making dynamic fight scenes or developing a story using your and other people's characters.
Who can join?
Anyone can join, though to be honest it’s a very niche thing. It’s a comic RP site, and a lot of people aren’t into RP'ing and most of those who are don’t know how to draw, or just don’t like drawing. But I always found SPB as a good place to learn how to draw and make stories out of comics. It’s fun if you try it out, and you don’t have to be a great artist to join, just try to make your comics coherent and follow whatever theme the thread has. Improvement comes in time and it's better to work with what you got than be worried that other people are better than you.
Did you make this forum?
I made this specific forum, but not the concept. SPB started right here on Newgrounds as a thread on the BBS General called “Super Ms Paint Brawl!” created by Trinidex. It later got locked and deleted by a now ex-mod called BigBadRon, because a lot of users just posted spam.
Bummed out that the thread got nuked, a lot of the thread’s participants moved to a proboards forum, created by Balto-Boy, which he accidentally called “SonofBalto.” This was SPB for years, with users coming and going. I got invited by McJesus about 6 months after the forum was first created and just loved the whole concept of it, and kept it at.
Around early 2014, I grew tired of Proboards’ staff removing and censoring our content, their annoying updates and new interface, and the “SonofBalto” name, so I looked for another free forum host that allows NSFW to be posted, and found hyperboards. I signed up and made the forum with the letters S P B on the URL http://spb.hyperboards.com/
[EDIT] I bought a host and domain name: The new site is SPBCOMICS.COM
Why do you shill this?
I just want people to join and participate, the forum isn’t very active, and I'd like that change. The few that do participate don't really want me to advertise the place, but without participation, theres really no fun, even if there are a few bad apples that join.
