    Please read the comic before reading past the OP, there will be spoilers discussed in this thread, but not in the OP.

    Welcome to the MS Paint Adventures (hereafter referred to as MSPA) thread!
    If you're new here, then welcome!

    What is MSPA?

    MS Paint Adventures is a collection of four webcomics done by a combination writer/cartoonist Andrew Hussie. All four comics are a great read and are a great way to cure boredom or spend a few weeks of summer.
    The four comics are:

    [table="width: 500, align: left"]
    [tr]
    [td][/td]
    [td]Problem Sleuth:

    A hardboiled team of three detectives discover an unspeakable evil, and must fend for themselves. But is it real, or just in their imagination?

    Link: http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=4

    Problem Sleuth status: Completed.[/td]
    [/tr]
    [tr]
    [td][/td]
    [td]Homestuck:

    Four kids receive copies for a beta of a game called SBURB. They decide to play together, however, the game is not what they think...

    Link: http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6

    Homestuck status: In Progress.[/td]
    [/tr]
    [tr]
    [td][/td]
    [td]
    Jailbreak: The Quest for Freedom. (The first adventure)
    Bard's Quest: Slay a Dragon! (Multi-pathed)

    Jailbreak: http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=1
    Bard's Quest: http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=2

    Jailbreak & Bard's Quest statuses:
    Jailbreak: FINISHED.
    Bard's Quest: Standby
    [/td]
    [/tr]
    [/table]

    The Art.

    Hussie uses several styles of art over his four comics. Most of the styles are fan-named, and Hussie himself rarely acknowledges the fact that he changes style.

    [table="align: center"]
    [tr]
    [td][/td]
    [td][/td]
    [td][/td]
    [td][/td]
    [td][/td]
    [/tr]
    [tr]
    [td]"Quick"-style
    Used for most of Problem Sleuth, and all of Jailbreak and Bard's Quest. Makes a few cameos in Homestuck.[/td]
    [td]Sprite mode
    Used a lot in the beginning of Homestuck, becomes less used towards the current time.[/td]
    [td]"Hero" mode
    A slightly more realistic interpretation of our heroes, used a fair amount towards the middle of Homestuck.[/td]
    [td]"Hussnasty" mode
    The most "realistic" interpretation of the characters. It's so named because it resembles Andrew Hussie's older works, such as: "And It Don't Stop" and "Whistles".[/td]
    [td]Scribble mode
    A more whimsical and fun approach, usually used for joke or gag panels.[/td]
    [/tr]
    [/table]

    Homestuck has an entire team of artists dedicated to the comic, mainly to help lighten the load on Andrew during flash production, by contributing images for the animation. The art team consists of many people, but notable ones include:
    • Tynic
    • Lexxy
    • SkepticArcher
    • Eyes5
    • Sock
    • Michael Firman

    Examples of art by members of the art team:

    [table="width: 500, align: center"]

    [td]

    [/tr]
    [tr]
    [td]Together by Lexxy[/td]
    [td]Dissolve by SkepticArcher/SkepsisFox[/td]
    [/tr]
    [/table]

    The Music.

    That's right, Homestuck has music, do you know many other webcomics with music?
    I didn't think so.

    Homestuck has an entire team of musicians who create music to fit the theme of certain segments, as well as for the comic's many Flash animation pages.

    Is it alright if I get mine added in there? It's a text adventure and not related to Homestuck, but it'd be nice to see it there. I'm fine with it being left out though.

    And Red_Pharaoh has his Unnamed TF2 Adventure as well, if that qualifies.

    Hey there Dante, what are your thoughts on Homestuck so far as a whole?
    First off, I can’t believe I’ve read a few thousands pages so far… Secondly, being that I’m that far in, I can’t believe not always sure what’s going on exactly… hahaha

    But I truly find this whole “Homestuck” amazing… It’s something I’ve never seen before. It’s like a book or a comic, only it’s not a book or a comic… it’s something new. It’s like an entirely new way of telling a story. I’m reading this story on the internet, learning what’s going on through pictures of these characters and their “IM” conversations… There is no other time in history that a story like this could be told and in this way, except for now… That’s kind of amazing.

    The art work, at first, I didn’t know if I was into it… but it grew on me… and then some pictures just blew me away.

    On top of all that, there is a community that you can communicate with about the story in real time, its kind of mind blowing… The fact that I somehow make an appearance in the story is just a bonus.

    And the as my computer battery is about to die… its a good time to get some sleep.

    But, I’m proud to be a Homestuck.
    Dante is a good person.

    I can't wait to take the knowledge that Jake is essentially Jade's way of saying fuck you to the Condesence to tumblr

    all the theories RUINED HAHAHAHAH

    Edited:

    Is this just another paradox? Jake becomes Lord English but travels back in time to become the Lord English Jade based her company after and thus influenced Jake’s interests? I don’t even know.
    yes somehow the part where there were two Lord Englishes and one didn't emerge from Doc Scratch's head slipped past me

    The fan-artists, theorists and fan-ficcers refuse to believe the reality that Jake is not in fact Lord English, or evil and will become Lord English.

    You just have to ignore the waves of stupidity on this one, because they aren't going to give up.

    so anyway, I was just thinking

    if the condesce has vriska and tavros' combined psychic controlling powers now, I wonder if that played a major part in her takeover. it was a bit ambiguous as to whether or not her experiments were successful.
