I made a special edition tripod, to celebrate the move
Great stuff Doors. Poor stupid Kenny.
Its comforting, somehow.
Just one question... who is Bob, anyway?
Edit: managed to get code wrong despite fool proof tool.
Dammit. I hear that so much Om.
Too late anyway doors, i'm here now and have been for over 24 hours now, so there. The strip still rocked though.
Yay! I love this Tripod.
Loved it. Yet I couldn't help but notice a distinct lack of a certain element that would make it complete....Alchohol!
Pah. He said he'd made a moving comic. So I got all excited thinking it would actually [i:bdce744f04]move.[/i:bdce744f04] But no!
Anyway, it's still good, it's still good
Like it, the strip I mean.
poor kenny. He looks so sad.
Brilliant stuff doors. Hopefully this move to the new board will mean you create many more tripods for us to enjoy.
Is this the tripod version of Home Alone?
There is alcohol, look at Nester's hand. And you should know that where there is doormen there's always beer.
Awww, it's so cute!
It may be, although I can't see me brilliantly and hilariously thwarting any criminals, even ones that dumb.
What an...auspicious start to our new home.
Wowee!! I only just joined, so I don't really know what it's all about... I'm assuming they're all people from the site?
The older comics can be found HERE
Some jokes might not make any sense but it's pretty funny overall.
Edit: Posting and Sleepdeprivation do not go hand in hand.
Edit 2: Fixed link. [mutter]Just my luck, all those people online[/mutter]
Thank you! ... But the link isn't working for me. Maybe my computer is just being difficult?
Perhaps I should offer it some micro-chips? 8)
Tephlon, you need to remove one http:// from your link.
haha and me fudge! I'm not sure who any of those are... is there a link to a strip showing who they be?
Edit: woops theres one already up there. Im too slow
Eee hee hee!! These are funny!! I want a cool little person!! :lol:
stick around for a while then... it happens of its own accord.
it's a well known fact that actually ASKING doors to do anything means he deliberately delays it
lol! Sorry, I didn't really mean I wanted one OF me, I just want one, you know, to take home in a shoebox and feed little pieces of chocolate. They're so cute! :lol:
Doors will give you Kenny if you're nice, right, Doors?
I don't think I can even give Kenny away, to be honest
Aww, go on...
Just for a weekend, if he's not too afraid of other people's homes.
Generally, the best way to get into a tripod comic is to have some major personality defect
That gives me plenty of material to then create humour from
Since we're all about new starts these days (and I'm bored), I'll go over what Tripod is
Basically, it's a comic. A comic based on my online life, and the people that I know, or have known.
It all started as a particularly creative flame in a long running, tedious argument I was having with another posted. After many times previously saying I could only make my point clearer by drawing a picture, I did
So, the first comic was born. It's not the first one in the archives though. If people want to see it, I'll dig it out though.
So, inspired by the rousing reception it got, I made more.
I honestly thought I'd do about 5 and run out of ideas. But, we're pushing towards 300 now. Which worries me
Over that time, it's went through some major changes. Mostly, the change in drawing style from horrific, to quite nice
There's been a few animated tripods (and I plan to make more of those), theres been a lot of guest comics (although, not many recently. I demand more!).
While I still think of it as my baby, I also like to think of it as something of a community project, with people from all over the place putting their own creative stamps on it.
And some of them are amazingly good comics. I'd also love to see more people drawing their own interpretations of the characters, just for some visual variety
So, yeah. You make me a comic, and I'll stick it up.
Actually, I might do a competition....
I'm planning something good for comic 300, when we eventually get there. So, stay tuned
Wow, excellent! 300?? Blimey...
I'd love to do a guest comic, except, you know, I can't draw... :? I'm quite good at nicking other people's drawings and changing them to the point where I've basically drawn them anyway... Probably shouldn't have mentioned that... **whistles innocently**
hell fudgecake, that's how doors got the current look for tripod :lol:
anyway, most people just cut and paste the various cast members into a blank strip.
hehe thats what im doin right now.. :lol:
Phew. I thought someone was going to call the cops. You know... the erm... cops of... not stealing other people's drawings... and stuff. :?
I might have a go at that if I can think of a good idea then.
Yay, a tripod competition! That'll rock. I remember the first one, the flame with bluegerbil... "You suck! You are mean! Black! White! Black! White!"
(And Fudgecake, totally off the subject for a moment... I really liked your avatar from the old board, the little fairy tapping her foot... She always tapped along in perfect time to whatever I was listening to )
Tripod is great.
That one is my favorite.
I was inspired to try and capture my character in art, as I suck at art this is the best I could come up with...
I thought the kangaroo was a particularly nice, if naff, touch
If I've made one, (not saying I have.. :roll: ) how would I show people it?
Upload it somewhere. Which either means getting someone with their own website to host it for you or creating a free account that lets you host pictures somewhere.
Or you could upload it to the "albums" section on this site, if Mal approves of it. I think that would be okay, but I'd check first.
Or, just mail me it and I'll get it uploaded

tripods should be sent to doors. that's the procedure, and it's pretty well established.
once doors gets them, he tends to sit on it for six to eight weeks, and then when he updates with about 9 or 10 tripods drawn by other people, he'll throw in one or two of his own at the end, and thus somehow manages to take credit for ALL of them, because people only ever mention his name when they say how good they are.
True stories not just story.
yeah... I wasn't thinking.
Well, I just like to have my own one as the one on the main comic page, so I only ever update when I've got a new one ready myself
Six to eight weeks? He normally sits on mine for a good three months, and I have to send them to him at least twice!
Lol, oh, that makes me want to have Saria back.. but I like this one too!! Argh. :lol: Oh the choices...
I'd better get on this Tripod thing!!! Must... think of... an idea.... grrrrr.... **brain melts** Oh, I shouldn't have thought so hard... Duhhhh. :|
I've done it now. Hope y'all like it! (Thats for when you see it, if Doors doesnt sit on it.)
hmmm...I am tempted to try to make one of these myself.
Is unhappy bob unhappy because tripod bob took his name?
Tripod Bob was first, I shall have you know
Is it just me, or are half the tripods not availiable on the archive page.
I was looking through the tripods, and have dicided that this one is my favorite:
These two are a close second and third:
My absolute favourite ever ever ever is this:
This is my favourite one out of all of them. Same one as Quoth. "Dr. Ba says Fuck You Bitch" :lol:
Ok, new tripods!
The latest one is a fairly sizeable animated gif, so you have been warned
Number 277 is one of my favourites ever!
nah, it's 279... that's the best one ever. A true return to the roots of Tripod!
280 classic. I miss Eu.
281. Oh, the suspense.
Gasp! Who was coming? What was in the box? I NEED ANSWERS!
When will Part 2 be out, doors?
Loved the new tripod's boss. The eu? one was superb.
In only 8 months time! In glorious technicolour!
Cool, I liked the lemming one also 8)
