Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

Wet Dream - Down the Drain is out now!



A relaxing shower becomes a horrifying nightmare when a woman named Denise begins to rapidly (and inexplicably) shrink until she finds herself going Down the Drain!



Synopsis: Denise was hoping that a nice, long shower might be just the way to relax and unwind (and maybe let out a little pent-up sexual tension with some “alone time”)... but will her soothing shower turn into a diminishing nightmare?

Release date: June 1st, 2019

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

While detailed it was very short and fast paced. Mostly just eyecandy and an extension of a comic we already had as a multi-part page. The only added bit was the end in which was guaranteed to show that more comics will be coming.

The style is lovely but the story falls very short and the single page comic portrayed this just fine.

(It might have been more than a single page, maybe 2 or 3 tops. But the same result)

The main character is an empty shell with no discernable qualities but being a cartoonish nymphomaniac. While the art is serviceable, nothing happens in this story. The character is passive, with most lines either being voicing confusion or bemoaning what's happening to her. Paired with a different script, the artist could deliver on some interesting angles and perspectives.

This is by far the worst comic on the site. While most comics vary in quality, they all fall within a certain range that is acceptable. This comic falls below that range. I hope it is not a sign of things to come. Little and Small Change look like exciting premises with potential. From the start, this comic did not appear to show any promise. Even the keywords imply dull filler between the next Small Fortune or other higher-quality work.

If you are going to adapt the work of others, please pick works that have interesting and proven narratives or world-building that go with the shrinking, like Catster's Diary of a Shrinking Woman.
Sorry Qzar and Vince, but I'm going to have to agree here. I know fetish content comes before writing, but... Really, here was nothing here that wasn't in the original 4chan piece other than the setup and dialogue, but I thought the original piece expressed the character's reactions better just by her face.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it was terrible but it was essentially just an extended shrinking sequence.

The art is very nice at least. I like the dynamics of the "camera." It really helped to emphasize her change in height in a situation where there isn't much besides water to compare her to.

Also did Drawanon get a credit?

EDIT: Disregard that last part. I just checked the 4chan shrinking thread and Drawanon is both aware fo the comic and doesn't mind either way about that kind of thing.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

“Down to the Drain” is a comic, based on a short comic from a 4-Chan artist, who is often called in the community as Drawanon or Draw-bro; as the author and creator of these comics never revealed an artist-name and only post anonymous.

This version of the comic is an extension of the original with some thoughts and dialogues of the protagonist.
The artist did a great job on adding some nice perspectives of the shrinking scene.
The body language and face expressions are captured perfectly to her current predicament.

Summary
This comic has a nice slowly shrinking process.
Although the comic contain all story elements of the original it add only a few minor details, e.g. why she is taking a shower.
For my taste, there is too much cursing when the character shrinks.
Besides the extended shrinking and the beautiful art, the comic adds nothing really new, like why Denise is shrinking.
Or how she is discovering her new gigantic environment.
Although I like the ending, I missed the opportunity to build more on this last part.

It is hinted that Denise will be found by her room-mate in another chapter, but for me this comic is completed and fine as it is.
Even though some might wonder, if the extension of an already existing comic was necessary instead of doing something new, I see this comic as what it is:
only a nice slowly shrinking comic to enjoy.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

The artist who created this is one of my favorites for this site. They really nail down how to draw a sexually enticing damsel in distress. Hopefully they do more work.

That said, as others have noted this is a weak copy of an existing storyline, beat for beat. It's not that we don't appreciate the comic, but we do not pay $15 a month for a phone-it-in writing crew. These are erotic stories, why be so lazy? Why repeatedly draw only a short section of process, only to tease that there may be some sexual interaction in the *next* comic, which will come... in a year? That's not worth the price you're charging.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

It was a decent comic but I mean… The last few stories have either been F/f or f stories… Do we ever get any M/f stories again? Also there's gotta be a way to either make the comics longer or output the content to twice a month. It's frustrating to see all the other sites get 2, maybe 3 comics a month while we're stuck waiting months or a year for a single storyline to conclude.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

Thanks for all of the feedback about "Down the Drain" and the site as a whole. I do take these into account when deciding what titles to continue, what to scrap and when to try new things.

First, I'd like to address the issue regarding the origins of the story. As a matter of policy we only publish original works and (in rare cases) adaptations of existing written stories with express permission granted from the original creator. It was only brought to my attention recently that there exists a shower shrinking mini comic that was posted to 4chan submitted by an anonymous artist. Our staff has since taken steps to try to contact the artist but this might be impossible since it was posted anonymously. Side note: If you know the artist or are the artist please contact us.

That being said, there have been other works of fiction, published before and after that mini comic was posted, that involve a woman shrinking in the shower. Needless to say we'll be putting our efforts toward depicting other scenarios and leave the shower shrinking to anyone else who wants to give it a go.

We are also doing our best to reach a point where we're able to offer more content each month -- of course this is contingent on our production capacity and costs associated. Every membership brings us one step closer to this goal.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

Let it be noted that ideas CANNOT be copyrighted, only works put in a tangible medium. So though this comic and the other mini-comic depict a woman shrinking in the shower, that's just an idea which has been fictionalized several times around the internet. Unless the "Down the Drain" writer specifically asked the ShrinkFan artist to reference specific existing drawings from a previous interpretation, there is nothing wrong with reinterpreting a pretty general idea.

For example, the following movies by rival studios came out within months of one another:
Armageddon vs. Deep Impact (big asteroid coming to Earth)
Antz vs. A Bug's Life (an off-beat ant saves the colony)
Mission to Mars vs. Red Planet (astronauts find weird stuff on Mars)
Volcano vs. Dante's Peak (dormant volcano erupts)
And the list goes on.

I read it once that there are very few, if any, new story ideas. Whether the execution of this idea is good is a subjective argument (the artwork is fantastic, in my opinion), but the idea is fair game to be used in a new way, as it appears the ending of the comic will go.

Re: Down the Drain - Shrink Fan Comics

Sounds great. Personally I'd like to see the conclusion to the Bully & One Extreme to Another. And maybe another M/f comic at some point?

The original piece was acknowledged by Merc in this post on deviantart: https://www.deviantart.com/mercomix/...-1st-787630927

I know that shrinking in the shower isn't an original idea but it is beat-for-beat very similar, right down to her waking up in her bed still shrunk. Apparently there was also like an audio reading that people say he ripped dialogue from? But that seems sketchy to me. I haven't heard it myself but it's very generic reactionary dialogue. Anywho, if you want to get Drawanon's attention speak to them on the /d/ shrinking women thread on 4chan. Either way he'll probably say not to sweat it but I think the gesture would be appreciated by the community at large. (Also you could try to get him on board with you guys, he's a p.good artist. >_>)

I agree with this statement and while ideas may be free, the above link shows that it was "inspired" And what I see by "inspired" is "This is a cool idea, lets do this with better art and make the scene longer."

I am not saying I disapprove and the anon who made the original comic said he was fine with it and that he also was inspired to make it from an old Minimizer story.

My issue is that this shouldn't have taken a month slot. It should have been a 15th comic issue, like you have done in the past. It was nice, but the dialogue is generic and the reaction for her shrinking but masturbating anyway feels forced. In conclusion, I feel like this shouldn't have taken a monthly issue slot by itself and that it would be nice if we got more than one comic a month to justify the $15 a month pricetag. That's the price of a full month of WoW sub. I don't mind paying that much. But it would be nice to get more than one comic a month out of that.
