Tapastic Winter Fest 2015 begins!
What is Tapastic Winter Fest 2015, you may ask?
Tapastic Winter Fest is a big comic collaboration event between 25 webcomic creators on Tapastic, that decided to get together and do something crazy for the holiday.
Our idea: To take over the Tapastic website. :dramatic lightning:
No, no, our idea is to have a bit of fun and throw all our comic characters into this multidimensional holiday winter market where readers of the series can enjoy seeing their favorite characters mingle and spread some holiday cheer.
We also hope to introduce readers to new series by having the episodes released in a new series daily and create a more interactive reading experience.
The episodes are set in the Tapastic Mutliverse where all the comic characters from these 25 separate comic series are able to meet and mingle and share wacky antics as they try to deliver a mysterious present to some guy called Tapastic Mascot (never heard of him) by midnight Xmas Eve.
We release a new episode daily, like an advent calendar, all they way till Dec. 25th when a big finale episode will be released. Follow the adventure from start to finish and keep an eye out for hidden Tapastic Mascots in each episode. The readers that can find them all will win a prize!
So with that, LET'S GET STARTED!
Finally the Finale! Happy Holidays Everyone!
This episode was original posted on @feyuca's series, Two Cent Slice. It's HERE! We've finally made it to the end, as the Tapastic mascot finally get their present and reacts to all the crazy stuff that has happened.
Two Cent Slice is a hilarious situational comedic comic series, drawn by the original Tapastic artist herself. Check out Two Cent Slice for more fun and laughs, at the link below.
If the posting artists would like to share some fun behind the scene anecdotes on their creation process for their episode, please do!
We've been made into a comic episode. Can this project get anymore meta?!
@EmmM made this really special comic episode featuring the 25 collab artist giving interviews on their feeling about the project. It's all based on the actual artist statements left here in this thread and really awesome to read all together like that. Check it about and spread the love by leaving a like/comment/subscribe for more fun.

What a surprise! This is a really cool concept with ton of work behind it. No wonder you had to start from august... You really are Winter's bravest!
I'll be following that very closely.
Hopefully this brings more eyes to the community!
It's a new day which means a new holiday collab comic over on Talissa's series, End.
Check out her beautiful episode and see if you can spot all the cameos and hidden Tapastic Mascots. There are so many great hidden Easter Eggs in her episode. Also while you're visiting her series, why not give the rest of her comic a good read and show her some love. <3
@talissacosta1 if you'd like to share any behind the scenes info on your creation process for this episode, please do share. Maybe you can tell us how you animated and added the animated gif in your episode?
Oh! Also we have a hashtag for the event on Twitter if you'd like to follow and tweet along. #TapWinterFest2015
!! Thanks @CyndiFoster !
Some behind the scenes =o Lemme see...
-I tried to work from just one camera position so I wouldn't need to draw the background several times. BUT I tried to make the background the best I could, so it wouldn't go to a waste o-o ;
-I drew the main characters in a sort of storyboard/keyframe style o-õ ;
-Gif was made in photoshop... Youcan use the timeline window... I drew one face and moved it a bit for like... 3 different frames? I dunno how many FPS it has xD Photoshop animation is confusing o-o ;
-There are cameos from... 24 different comics? But I drew more than 1 character for some of those, so it is more than 24 cameos... And I just made this count O_O Wow.... ;
-There is a character from Tyree, even tho @hades wasn't able to stick to the collab =/ Damn tendinitis T_T ;
-Look at the Lost and Found booth on the right, you may recognize some (if not all) of those items;
-The guy in the far left booth, with the crystal ball, closes his eyes in some panels (or just one panel?);
Hope that's enough and... Cool xD I got excited! Thanks all for reading, and wait for a bunch of awesome and beautiful comics to soon!
Oh my god this is such a cute idea :') gonna go read it ASAP
Awww, this is so much fun! I'm glad to see people getting into it - a LOT of effort's gone into this, and everyone's episodes looks so cute. <3
Awesome second episode. The background is really wonderful
I LOVE WINTERFEST!! This is AWESOME!! GREATEST HOLIDAY THING EVER!!
Wooot! So glad people are enjoying this and looking forward to more!
Vincent and Isis were absolutely fun to draw (I might have gotten carried away with drawing Vincent lol), and so were the other cameos! I wish I could have drawn as many as possible DX
I tried to make the background of my very last panel similar to @talissacosta1's background by drawing @noxfox and @AnnaLandin's booths side by side for the sake of continuity.... And I realised that Anna's booth basically teleported since it was next to the books booth in the very top panel of the entire comic. Your booth is magic, Anna XD
I think I had fun drawing Jerry the horse more than my main characters. I hardly draw animal characters and it was much easier to make Jerry expressive. I chanted "gangsta horse, gangsta horse, gangsta horse" in my mind when I was drawing him picking up the sweet potato from the snow.
It was challenging but totally worth it. Once again I'm gonna thank my sister @konori for assisting me TwT
Keep coming back for more Tapastic Winter Fest, people. December is faaaar from over >:D
Congrats on wrapping up all the hard work guys! =D Can't wait to see this unfold.
