MW-Industries's Profile Picture
MW-Industries
MW Ent. Industries
United States
An aspiring company which produces comics, graphic novels, manga, novels, short stories, poems, music, plays, video games, board games, card games, and LARPG's. We hope to inject our own doses of innovation, quality, passion, diversity in characters, and variety in releases into multiple forms of media.

Some of our planned major titles include Shadowkat, the Emissaries of Justice, Raptor, Nightclaw, Ripper, Arch Eagle, Star Ninja, Tome of Avarice, Blood Moon & Ether, Midnight Owl, Tyron, Fatherland, Metamorphic Trials 101, Rampage, Razor, Paladins of Order, Grift, Nightshade, and C.E.: Cutting Edge. Some of our core characters include Shadowkat, Sensei Earl, Raptor, Nightclaw, Ripper, Arch Eagle, Cutting Edge, Obelisk, Midnight Owl, Vega, Electric Knight, Archon the Mad God, Ankh, Razor, Rampage, Ankh, Marlon Baptiste, Apax, Beetleman, Decibelle, Druid, Wolf, Thorn, Fall Thru, Bulldog, Seraphim, and Giles Cory.

Divisions of MW include The Jade (which is an all-ages group, with titles that hit audiences like those of classic Transformers or Danny Phantom) and Vindication Studios (which is a more mature, grounded branch, with titles including dark subject matter like rape, excessive violence, etc.. Not to say non-Vindication titles will not have such subject matter, it's just Vindication is more focused on that type of content).

Anyone who is interested is welcome to join, our idea at MW is "the more, the merrier".
Interests
So we obviously forgot to confirm when the Cumshot commission had been finalized, our apologies. Today commissions for Ankh and Frank Swagger should be finalized.
So unfortunately our plans for Project Defy and MW Xtra have essentially fallen through for a number of reasons, but we're looking to publish all of the stories from them on a daily basis on our various platforms such as DA, Comic Versus, Wattpad, and WritersCafe.
We're looking to commission several artists soon, including one we've mentioned before and two others. The characters we're looking to commission include Cumshot, Ankh, and Frank Swagger. We'll have the artists publicized on our website at mwiki.snack.ws/member-bios.html, but won't announce them here as to surprise people when the art is finished but still let the info be out there for people to optionally look into. We'll announce respectively when each commission has been finalized.
Never participated in an MW contest before because you're not very talented in terms of visual art? The day has finally come where you can get some spotlight.

So what is this new contest for? Well, the goal is to suitable short story as a back-up feature for Shadowkat: The Novel.

What are the basics? We suggest reading all previous Shadowkat stories on our page (look in either the "Shadowkat" or the "Stories" folder) to get a grasp of who Shadowkat is as a character, as well as reading more into him on his bio at mwcomics.wikia.com/wiki/Shadowkat. You should also be sure to pick a good Shadowkat villain, read up on him/her, or if you're going to feature other MW Central characters you should similarly look into them as well. There's a lot there to do, so this contest will be much longer than our typical ones to give people enough time to both do their research, write, and then proof-read their entries. There is no exact upper or lower limit, the story should be as long as it needs to be. If it's a paragraph or so and ends up winning, we will allow for more than one entry to be in. All stories should star Shadowkat or one of his "satellites", such as Bulldog or Loanshark (satellites are further explained below).

If you have any problems with characterization, Shadowkat's creator, Matthew Werner, will be open to giving consultation as you're writing, ensuring that you get their personalities, diction, abilities/powers, and such all down. If you'd like to privately contact Matthew, either note us on here or email us and let us know how you'd like to talk (Skype, email, notes, Google Hangouts). In the event that something you decide to do disrupts the plans for future MW Central stories, we'll try fixing that without making you have too much weight on your shoulders.

Remember, we will proof-read your stories for any grammatical or otherwise small errors. We do ask you try to spell and whatnot as well as possible (less work for us, the faster it is we can announce the contest winners), but don't think that just because you miss the one "f" in "giraffe" that your entry will not be accepted. We'll tighten all that stuff up for you.

RULES:
1 Writers can make as many practice drafts or short stories as they wish, but they can only pick one official entry.
2 No one is to disrespect another writer or their entry. If anyone does then they will be warned not to continue, and if they do they will be disqualified.
3 Entries are to be original, not plagiarized or written by someone else for you. If someone is exposed as a plagiarist, they'll be disqualified and black-listed for future contests.
4 Entries should read like a Shadowkat short story, not a contemporary character like Batman or something which otherwise does not suit Shadowkat like smut. Remember, this story will be part of the MW canon, and as such should be consistent.
5 Contestants are to link their official entry in the comments of the official MW post, send it to us via note or email, or tag us (though this is not advised as the only way to let us know you've entered--please send us a private message as well if you decide to tag us). If there's a way which is more convenient for you, please feel free to let us know in the comments and we'll see if we can work things out.
6 Stories are to be submitted before the last week of this November, specifically Thursday the 23rd. We'll accept entries for 12 hours afterwards, to have a grace period, but there will be no further extensions. The revisions period will be from the 24th to the end of November, 2017. During this time we will fix any glaring technical errors (spelling, punctuation, etc.) and judge all entries which were sent in during the eleventh hour. Once we finish judging and correcting, we will announce the winners.
7 Our own writers, members, and partners can participate in this contest, as it's all in good fun. Judging will be done fairly, however--if we think your story fits the character better than that of any of our members (as well as every other contestant, of course), you will win, no questions asked, and no bias towards our members. Their stories will almost certainly be repurposed and released otherwise so we would have no reason to do something like that.
8 If you decide to have any other character in your story which is not part of the Shadowkat satellites (who are basically the main and supporting casts) or an MW Central character: please make sure that the character is either your own or one we can actually get permission for (please arrange this beforehand, and not retroactively). That means sorry, but no Optimus Prime's or Zenyatta's (we know the pain). We just can't try putting those characters on our website or elsewhere, say "No, but our dude is the other guy; we get that we don't own the rights to ____.", and not expect a backlash of some sort; whether legal, from the copyright owner, or just public, in people skewering us for whatever reason. Stories which feature copyrighted characters without the expressed permission of the copyright owner (whether that be someone from MW or elsewhere) are immediately disqualified.

PRIZES:
1ST PLACE The winner will have their Shadowkat short story used as a back-up for Shadowkat: The Novel and properly credited for it; it will be posted on our websites (mwiki.snack.ws and mwcomics.wikia.com) as well as other MW literature pages (Wattpad, WritersCafe, etc.); they will receive credit in every future re-issue of Shadowkat: The Novel, including a potential physical release; they get a no questions asked request of one of our artists (do remember that we cannot guarantee a certain artist will be available for your request in a timely fashion (only applicable for non-MW members, unless they happen to have an original character that another artist will draw)) and one of our writers (similarly, we cannot guarantee a writer's timely availability); they can have a private chat with some of our members; they will be given a free digital copy of our upcoming comic, Shadowkat: Fine China (written by Matthew Werner, penciled by Benjamin Delabays (bendels), inked and colored by Edward Joseph) as well as early access to the future sequels to Shadowkat: The Novel, including the next one, Shadowkat: The Bleeding; the writer may become a regular MW writer; we will give free promotion to any creation of theirs they wish as well as any that aren't theirs as they wish (as long as said creation isn't anything like pro-Nazi).
2ND PLACE Runner-up will get a similar no questions asked request of one of our artists and writers; their entry will be featured on both MW websites and other MW literature pages; they'll also be given a free digital copy for the first half of Shadowkat: Fine China and early access to future book sequels; the writer in question may become a regular at MW.
DIDN'T PLACE BUT... Anybody who doesn't make it into the top 2 who we still think did well will have their work featured on both MW websites and other MW literature pages; they'll be given early access to future book sequels; the writer(s) in question may become regulars at MW.

Hey, I wanna join MW/Hey, I have a studio and you guys seem 'ight/Hey, I'm working on a comic and wouldn't mind having you guys help out with something
Well send us a note or email at mwindustries2016@gmail.com, tell us what you're interested in working with us on or what your studio publishes or what your series is and how we can help. "The more, the merrier" is our mantra.
Missed out on the Vagabond, Virtue, or Fall Thru contests but want to participate in an MW character design contest? Look no further!

So what is this new contest for? Well, the goal is to find a design for the blood-bending super-villain, Artery. He's from the upcoming Emissaries of Justice series, where he'll often be an antagonist to the Emissaries. His abilities allow him to go toe to toe with other MW Central powerhouses, such as Ankh, Shadowkat, Comet King, and Obelisk.

Who is Artery (IE, how does he look generally)? Well all you really need to know for the base-line is that he's a brutal bad guy who can control blood on a whim, using it to form constructs, levitate, tear his foes apart from the inside, and such. He doesn't wear superhuman armor (as in like Iron Man) and is a human.

Besides those details, you can really play around and make your own design.

RULES:
1 Artists can make as many practice designs as they wish but they can only pick one official entry.
2 No one is to disrespect another artist or their entry. If anyone does then they will be warned not to continue, and if they do they will be disqualified.
3 Entries are to be original, not traced or stolen from someone else. If someone is exposed as an art thief they'll be disqualified. Using a pose or template like Hero Machine 3 is fine as long as the design itself is original.
4 Entries should look like Artery-ish. Ex. Contestants shouldn't enter a werewolf, robot, or dragon.
5 Entries should not be the contestant's pre-existing character design, unless they, for whatever reason(s), don't mind the design being repurposed for MW.
6 Contestants are to link their official entry in the comments of the official MW post, send it to us via note or email, or tag us (though this is not advised as the only way to let us know you've entered--please send us a private message as well if you decide to tag us). If there's a way which is more convenient for you, please feel free to let us know in the comments and we'll see if we can work things out.
7 Should you lose, feel free to repurpose your design for another character or gift it to us or someone else for a future character.
8 Characters are to be submitted before the last week of July, specifically Monday the 24th. We'll accept entries for 12 hours afterwards, to have a grace period, but there will be no further extensions.
9 Our own artists, members, and partners can participate in this contest, as it's all in good fun. Judging will be done fairly, however--if we think your design matches the character better than that of any of our members (as well as every other contestant, of course), you will win, no questions asked, and no bias towards our members. Their designs will almost certainly be repurposed so we would have no reason to do something like that.
10 While it's preferred that all entries be single character pieces which display the person's design, if you decide to have a fight between your rendition Artery and another character: please make sure that the character is either an MW character, your own, or one we can actually get permission for (please arrange this beforehand, and not retroactively). That means sorry, but no Optimus Prime's or Zenyatta's (we know the pain). We just can't try putting those characters on our website or elsewhere, say "No, but our dude is the other guy; we get that we don't own the rights to ____.", and not expect a backlash of some sort; whether legal, from the copyright owner, or just public, in people skewering us for whatever reason. Pieces which feature copyrighted characters without the expressed permission of the copyright owner (whether that be someone from MW or elsewhere) are immediately disqualified.

Remember, even if you think you aren't very talented at art per se, you absolutely have a chance to win as we're judging more on the quality and originality of the design, rather than your art chops. Your piece could look like Clayton Crain and but have a Deadpool looking design and we would not accept it. Maybe when we're doing cover contests or something in the future, we'll judge based on art, but for a character design contest it's all about the character design. If your work does look like Clayton Crain though: 1 why are you even here? and 2 we certainly wouldn't mind working with you in future :p

PRIZES:
1ST PLACE The winner will have their design of Artery used in any issues featuring Artery; it will become our new DA account picture and will be used as the banner for our website (mwiki.snack.ws) as well as other MW social media pages; they will receive credit in every issue including Artery made as well as his bio for designing him; they get a no questions asked request of one of our artists (do remember that we cannot guarantee a certain artist will be available for your request in a timely fashion (only applicable for non-MW members, unless they happen to have an original character that another artist will draw)); they can have a private chat with some of our members; they will be given a free digital copy of our upcoming comic, Shadowkat: Fine China (written by Matthew Werner, penciled by Benjamin Delabays (bendels), inked and colored by Edward Joseph).
2ND PLACE Runner-up will get a similar no questions asked request of one of our artists. They'll also be given a free digital copy for the first half of Shadowkat: Fine China.
DIDN'T PLACE BUT... Anybody who doesn't make it into the top 2, who we still think did well won't receive any tangible prizes now, but we'll certainly look into working with them in future. Definitely a place for the aforementioned pieces where the art itself is high fidelity but the character design is lackluster or doesn't fit the character.

Hey, I wanna join MW/Hey, I have a studio and you guys seem 'ight/Hey, I'm working on a comic and wouldn't mind having you guys help out with something

Commissions

MW Commissions (merely stand-in, do not commission us from this widget)
Commissions will go entirely to the artists who do said commissions, but they can redistribute the funds to the company if they wish. Although mostly closed now, these commissions can be anything from stories to concept art to cover art, but will need to conform to the schedules of those members open to doing them, hence why they are currently closed off in regards to most of our creators.

Not all of our creators will wish to do commissions, even if they are the only one you wish to hire. Any artists who do the commissions will set their own schedules, so if you wish them to be done before a certain time this may not be the way you wish to have such work done. A list of creators who will be doing commissions will be listed below, as well as their respective roles and general themes they work on, and will change as schedules open up and close:

• Matthew Werner (writer, editor)
   > Will do superhero, fantasy, science fiction, pulp noir, supernatural, villain, and generally action, drama, adventure, and humorous stories, with target audiences ranging mostly from young adult to mature, with an exception to stories with a classic Transformers level of subject matter (so there can be some death but still hits a young audience). Inspirations include Alan Moore (Watchmen), Robert Kirkman (The Astounding Wolf-Man), Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun), Jim Butcher (The Dresden Files), Peter David (Captain Marvel), Mark Waid (Irredeemable), Todd McFarlane (Spawn), Jay Faerber (Anti-Hero), Mark Millar (Wanted), Rick Riordan (Kane Chronicles), Ed Brubaker (Criminal), James Robinson (The Shade), Jeff Lemire (Animal Man), John Barber (Transformers), and John Layman (Chew).

Costs of commissions will vary between creators, length, number of characters, how much of the character is drawn, etc.. For more information, contact MW at mwindustries2016@gmail.com, and we will give exact prices and an estimated time to completion.

Note these caveats before you decide to pay for commissions. 

Journal History

Activity


Elizabeth Sullivan concept art
Done by Kt1978, Keishawn Thomas. Created and owned by Matthew Werner.

Elizabeth Sullivan is a childhood friend of Brian Frazier from New England who would later cross paths with him during his stint as a gun for hire. Despite Brian's protests, Elizabeth would join the Emissaries as another one of their "normie" members.

Ripchord concept art
Done by Kt1978, Keishawn Thomas. Created and owned by Matthew Werner.

Ripchord is a lunatic hired gun and predominantly foe to Giles Cory. Relies on his parachute for quick escapes and his brutality in fights.
Loading...
Frank Swagger commission
Done by @adagadelego, Rodrigo Martins dos Santos. Frank designed by Kt1978, Keishawn Thomas. Created and owned by Matthew Werner.

Rodrigo was great to work with, pretty quick, responsive, and did what we were looking for. Be sure to check him out and maybe commission him yourself.

Another look at Frank Swagger. He is the result of experimentation from the clandestine organization, the Society, and a core member of the Emissaries of Justice. Stolen of his memories but given the ability to make his arms MINIGUNS and adapt to anything thrown at him, Frank goes on a manhunt for those who took everything from him.
