About

Starbaby, Ragtag, and Mishmash respectivley
Starbaby, Ragtag, and Mishmash respectivley
      

Ragtag and Mishmash have their own Cafe, or is it a Laboratory?

Mishmash (or MM) loves to bake and make the cutest clothing! Ragtag (RT) can't stop herself from creating another masterpiece (or is it an abomination?)!

This is the story of these siblings living their lives in a land where monsters are people, and not a soul alive doesn't know about MM! TrEAts or RT Labs!

This story will follow the lives of RT and MM predominantly, along with having a cast of characters that frequent the shop, and work there. The style will be a slice of life with the potential for some very deep and adventurous story arcs.

Here's a wonderful example of one of our main cast!

Our personal goals are to fill the world with awesome Monsters, while building a brand new community of inclusion and acceptance.

We're defying the known and creating the known unknown. (As unknown unknowns are yet to be known.)

The goal for this Kick Starter is to raise funds for The Artist to have a better work-space. This entails; A better laptop that can handle more art programs with an external hard drive to make room for everything needed, a desk because she doesn't have one, and the programs for ART.

Along with that we will also obtain a domain name and set up our website (We have a personal server which will hopefully not be over powered by reader demands). 

And if we reach past our initial goal of $3,600, We hope to achieve small personal rewards for the backers (which will be posted when appropriate), as well as them being products we will be able to use for our M.R.S Monster project. (An air of mystery)

Once we reach our funding goal, we will acquire our domain, and launch our website! Most of the website is already designed, and we have the first few months of "script/plot/story" planned out.

Once our website is up and running like a Tesla S, We will update three times a week UNTIL THE END OF TIME (or one of us dies, whichever comes first)! With our Sunday comic strips being in full color!

Along with our main focus, The Comic, we will have galleries for other artists and inventive people for all to see, discussion boards for just about everything on our site, blogs with recipes and patterns for free, as well as artist and awesome people shout-outs, and guest strips or shout-outs to other web-comics out there on our off days of comic posting.

Bust drawings will include from the head of the character down to around the shoulders with either a white or solid colored background.

Example of a bust drawing (yes we know it's the same as the poster)

Poster drawings will include a full body drawing of the character in just about any dynamic or static pose you'd like.

Song covers will either be acapella, karaoke, or have guitar accompaniment. (this is a rough example with very little mastering)

Written songs will either have acapella, midi, or piano and/or guitar accompaniment.

Songs will both be recorded as a "live" performance video (less instrumentation etc. with video), and a more professionally recorded audio file.

 The largest portion of the goal amount is buying a high quality computer to process the image editing software (this uses a lot of processor power and you can only do so much with a net-book laptop).

The next biggest purchase will be an image editing software called Manga Studio.

The rest of the money will go to a work bench for The Artist, a high capacity external hard drive to store all the images we'll be editing, as well as buying our domain name for our website, and of course the fees for Kick Starter and Amazon.

Our original concept started out as simply a gallery that allowed for patrons to commission works, receiving a full body illustration of just about anything with a partial or beginning character biography and a printed poster in the mail created by The Artist, along with a plush doll in the likeness of the character in one of two main styles by The Writer.

When We thought more on the concept, We decided to build on it and create an entire community that not only can appreciate Monsters, but would incite inspiration for Us to keep going, and contribute to Our project, for it is also their own. The structure of this web comic will place emphasis on the reader's ideas and suggestions, while giving an outlet for many other artists out there making their own web comics or hand made projects.

Once we have a successfully running and growing web comic with a wonderful community, we will begin PHASE DEUX. This will incorporate Our original idea with the current model, adding in the plush and poster aspect to the plans, we also hope to further incorporate our community by giving everyone the chance to participate in the workings of the web-comic.

We have separated these portions of our company to lower the chances of major hang ups with materials supply/cost, and craftastic or perhaps craftacular, disasters on top of creating an entire civilization from nothing!

Risks and challenges

Reining in The Artist. (srsly tho, she's literally playing video games while I, The Writer... Write.) This may be the hardest challenge of them all. The "Shazapus" is an elusive creature, Very shy, she only leaves her nest for very pressing matters, such as Unicorns and candy, sometimes a Pegasus may be incentive enough. With your contributions to this project, we will finally have the necessary equipment to wrangle and house train Our Art Monkey!

The second biggest challenge to make Our project soar off into the sunset and eventually collide with the sun in space causing a massive black hole, destroying the entire solar system, is obtaining a fan base for M.R.S Monster's web comic. The successful funding of this Kick Starter will be the catapult for our flaming ball adventure.

Among other challenges, the one that may be the easiest to overcome is the fact that we are attending college. The class load may hold as a distraction from properly maintaining a healthy and happy site. Our plan is to schedule time explicitly for focusing on this project and giving it the attention it needs. And feeding it, and petting it, and loving it every day!
