ToastX2's Review Of Mission Nasaru

ToastX2's Review Of Mission Nasaru

It’s awesome to see more people doing webcomic reviews. There are so many gems out there. Webcomics are a fascinating medium for telling stories and expressing ideas. There are so many styles and skill levels created by the imagination of people from all over around the world. I appreciate that there are no set rules for the way you present your comic. It gives you the freedom to try new things and continually evolve.

   The Full Review

I enjoyed seeing someone elses’ perspective on the comic and the way it’s organized.  I recommend checking out the YouTube video and ToastX2’s other reviews.  Reviews help lesser known comics get noticed.  

I would like to say thank you to ToastX2 for taking the time to review Mission Nasaru.

Weekend Desktop Screen shot

It is my day off today and thought I would share a screen shot of a panel I am working on. Spending my morning listening to podcasts, drinking coffee, and working a panel is a normal Monday for me. The picture is of my desktop while I use Gimp – GNU image manipulation program.

Most my work is done on a laptop running the Ubuntu Mate desktop. I haven’t used Windows in a very long time. I am a supporter of open-source software and use it when ever I can. Most of my work is done on Blender, Gimp, and Libre Office all of the programs are free to download and use. I also use a small Wacom to draw with. I only use a small portion of the full capabilities of theses programs. My work is not the best example what can be done with them. I learned how to use them from watching YouTube videos and playing around with them. Mostly solving one problem (challenge) at a time.

Thought I would share some of my stuff with you. Let me know if any of you would like to see more blog posts like this in between posting the comic. I hope to develop the blog page more in the future when I have the time.

Mission Nasaru - Comic Character Profiles

Character Personality Types

In an effort to get to know my characters I decided to use the Myers-Briggs personality types. Using it has made writing dialogue and actions much easier. You can see Mission Nasaru cast profiles here.

The Myers-Briggs Foundation breaks up personalities into 4 groups.

1) Extrovert or Introvert – Direction of energy, people, objects, ideas, and information.

2) Intuitive or Sensing – How you take in information.

3) Feeling or Thinking – Your style of decision making.

4) Perceiving or Judging – Type of lifestyle, planned, or go with the flow.

This method divides personalities into 16 different types.

  • INTJ – The Architect
  • INTP – The Logician
  • ENTJ – The Commander
  • ENTP – The Debater
  • INFJ – The Advocate
  • INFP – The Mediator
  • ENFJ – The Protagonist
  • ENFP – The Campaigner
  • ISTJ – The Logician
  • ISFJ – The Defender
  • ESTJ – The Executive
  • ESFJ – The Consul
  • ISTP – The Virtuoso
  • ESTP – The Douche bag
  • ESFP – The Entertainer

I am not sure if I believe that these types are static. It seems to me that a persons type could change based on how the feel, high self esteem, or low self esteem, but that is my opinion.

As my comic develops characters personality types might change a bit. My hope is that this makes it simpler for the audience to get a feel for the cast.
