Ok, brief run down: I'm trying to make a web comic. But the dialogue is just as important as what is visually happening in the frame. That's why I'm here. So here is my first situation, and I hope you all can expand on it: I am American. The main character in my comic has an Australian accent. Her best friend has a Scottish brogue. I don't really know how to portray these accents without going way overboard on slang (researched from the internet) and/or phonetic spellings. Here is the easy part! The story takes place in an alternate universe on a planet that's not Earth! So I can get by just fine with something very general, as long as the reader gets the idea that one character has an Australian influenced dialect and the other Scottish. More dialects are to come, but these two are the main characters. And could you please post examples of your suggestions? Doh! Only here 20 minutes and I may have posted this in the wrong forum. If it is, feel free to move it. I'll make sure to double just the forum type next time.
