Ok, ok! Here it is...the file was too big to put as an attachment, that's why I had to make another post. Anyways, this is the link to the site that has it, it's the last 4 pics, you'll see. If they're really big, then good, they should be, so u can read my messy writing.

The 4 pages of My Manga

Do you have photoshop? If so, I have a suggestion for the 'grainy' quality of the pages. Ink it with something other than a ballpoint pen, erase the pencil lines (once the ink is dry. God, how I have hurt myself smearing ink and then screaming in agony) and then scan it in. Once you have it in Photoshop go Image->Adjust->Levels

Bring the black triangle and the white triangle closer and closer together to get rid of that grainy gray stuff.

I love your work! You did PA's charrie piccies for the Esca RPG. Lovely stuff.

I know I know....everyone says that to me. Do forgive me, but I don't have Photoshop. I have Microsoft Photo Editor....>.> I'm too lazy to all that clean up work.... I plan to do that once I have it all done. But for now, I just wanna get the rough sketch of the manga over with.

well....it's sorta a rough......I'm not gonna re-do it, just edit whatever needs to be edited....like perhaps dialogue, or the actual images. But really, the beginning is kinda irrelavent, so I'm not worrying about its dialogue right now.

Hehe, I was thinking the same thing, this thread is great, helps me getting ideas, and it also motivates me ^_^. I'm a very busy man , and the only time when I really can get to drawing is on school, during the courses and in the breaks, hehe. So I guess the whole school knows that I'm drawing manga.

Quote:
The basic style is fantasy, but not computer-game-type, more like LOTR-type. If you know what i mean...
Interesting . I think I follow ya. Care to explain your storyline a bit more?

Quote:
On the topic of copying ideas from others, it may well be true that nothing is original these days. Basic ideas are nothing to be ashamed of if you've seen them elsewhere before, good vs evil being the most simple. Even if you think you've come up with something original, you're bound to find somthing else like it if you were able to read and watch every other book, film and text in the entire world! I've had that experience many times before. I don't go out of my way to copy other peoples stuff, and most everybody else wouldn't too, but of course you're influenced by what you see.
Quite right. Just be original in your individuality, design your own characters with their own distinguished personalities, and select the theme (IMHO, almost every theme you can think of has already been thouhgt of) of your story. Mine is cybercity combined with great parapsychological power, a bit like Dragonball I think. About the influencing thing, whatever you've already seen/watched/read/listened to on radio, in books and comics or on tv, anime series you've watched, cinema movies, they shape your ideas, without it, it would be very difficult to think of your own story, I think.

Quote:
The other little problem is clothing! It's easy to design female clothing with a minimum amount of armour, but i really have little experience in more detailed armour for the guys. (no, my story is not sexist!) Maybe I can get a bit of design help from someone???
I haven't gotten around clothing yet, I just did some basic designs. Long coats Matrix-style, a slim dress suitable to fight in, and a casual set, for a casual girl . That's it so far. What I'll do is look into a model/clothing-book of some sort, and try and come up with more ideas for clothing.
As for your armor thing, you could borrow a book about it in your library, about knights or something? * just an idea *

Quote:
Oooh, that went for a bit too long... heh heh, i guess everyone'll skip it, just like i do sometimes with the long posts...
Quote:
Heh, maybe. Has anyone else responded to this post too?

Ok, enough in one post. I'll be posting a next one right away, hehe.
