The Whiteboard is an unusual paintball-themed Furry Comic about an Alaskan airsmith polar bear named Doc and his animal friends (all of them Funny Animals) as they play paintball, deal with ornery customers of Doc's shop, and cause crazy stuff to happen by building machines way more powerful than is necessary.

Tropes used in The Whiteboard include:
  • Abhorrent Admirer: It's not completely clear, but it's hinted that Doc may be one of these to Pirta. And Kasi is definitely this to Jinx. For now.
  • Alcohol Hic:
    • Jinx, in this New Years Eve strip.
    • In this strip, a no-neck who's had a few too many has his comment peppered with hics.
  • Animal Stereotypes: Most of the non-human characters display some obvious stereotypical behavior from time to time.
  • April Fools' Day: Many April Firsts since the beginning have had a special strip, on the general theme of Fan Service.
  • Art Evolution: Okay, so it's a bit hard to tell, but Doc's appearance, along with the other regulars, has been refined since the beginning strips.
  • Artifact Title: And how! The first five strips were doodled on a whiteboard. Between strips #11 and #12, there's a sixth for the 4th of July. He now uses the computer for his comic-drawing needs, so strips on the titular medium now account for less than 0.5% of all strips, and that percentage gets smaller every update.
  • Author Avatar: Doc is more or less the author as a polar bear.
  • Awesome Personnel Carrier:
  • Awkward Father-Son Bonding Activity: Played with by Jinx who has convinced his dad to buy him a chain saw. As well as doing... other things.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animals: Lampshaded:

Swamp Fox: ". . . why do I even own socks?"

Run Swampy! It's a trap!

Doc: I'd say it's too early for puns...but that presumes at some point there's a correct time for them.

"Son, you use high explosives just to make breakfast. We're amazed you made it past puberty."

  1. Which one is the "beauty" is left as an exercise for the audience.
  2. The animals mouths are seldom seen, even when they're talking. They're usually only seen if they're shouting.
  3. see both right-hand corners of the grid
  4. basically no real rules
  5. Play on "parodox", for those who missed the "pun" part.
  6. John Moses Browning, often considered one of the gods of the firearm world.
  7. moreso the latter, not having been around the gang for as long as the former
