Black Sun, Silver Moon by Tomo Maeda is about a boy named Taki Juhas (Does the name sound vaguely familiar? like Judas from the Bible.) Anyways this boy as the oldest of ten has the responsiblity of paying off family debts by cleaning for the Church.  There he finds that he’s not just cleaning with brooms and mops.  There is something more sinister that needs to be cleaned, namely zombies and he is to do this with the help of the priest, Shikimi.  And of course things happen all along the way that get in the way of removing these zombies. 

Here’s page two of my fan manga.

Yet another contest

In November I entered a contest in which I had to draw a manga.  It was a doujinshi (or fan comic) for the manga Black Sun, Silver Moon.  I never read the manga, but by looking at the art and reading the story line I managed to draw a doujinshi.  I was a finalist in the competition so I won a few prizes and got my work displayed at the New York Anime Festival. I couldn’t go see my work display which would have been nice, because I don’t live in New York and I wasn’t going to travel up there in the middle of December.

My Doujinshi turned out to be five pages and a cover page.  I admit the cover is a piece of crap, because that is the first and only picture I’ve started and  finished on photoshop, but I can guarantee that the rest of my little manga is not.

Page one is below.  I’ll be posting the rest little by little.
