Hey,

Well this is the last page in my short little manga. I hope to get good enough to enter the Morning International Manga Competition (MIMC) contest and the rising stars of manga contest at Tokyo Pop. Really good work has been submited in both competitions.   I may try to enter the rising stars contest this year if I can get someone else to work with me.  I also have a lot of improving to go through.

Back to school and page 4

Hey,

 I’m back to school (because I am a college student).  This semester looks like its going to be busy.  I’m definitely not going to be able to post my own art work up everyday.  I’ll try putting it up as often as possible and seeing that I’m not an art student I don’t have time to draw everyday. I’m actually a Government and East Asian studies major.

Well I hope you like my short manga.  So far its the best one I’ve done (I’ve done several others. 2 that end and 3 that haven’t so far and to think I’m planning on working on a another one.  Maybe I should just finish one that I’ve started first.)

Here’s page four:

Learned Alot

January 13, 2008 at 6:16 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I learned alot from working on this manga. I learned how to use photoshop better.  I can do speed lines and fill in backgrounds.  My next manga is going to be even better because of this.  I was supposed to start another one doing winter break but I never got to it, because I was so busy designing clothes and I kind of got lazy too.  Drawing a manga is not too bad, but completing one (no matter how short) takes alot more work.  There’s inking, shading, text of course and clean up.  I’m not the neatest drawer in the world so cleaning the drawing up takes some time. 

Here’s page three

Never Heard of Black Sun, Silver Moon?

January 12, 2008 at 6:49 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

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

January 11, 2008 at 8:08 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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.
