Title: Hi desu
Post by: xWyvernx on May 21, 2019, 08:58:03 AM
Hi! I'm not sure if this is the right place but I read that this is a good place to talk and share with others about manga creation!

Its been a long time since i joined a forum though.

I'm not really an artist or a writter but I love manga and i gotta say I'm finally starting to draw and write manga on my own, maybe I will show something soon hehe.

I have some experience with spriting, animating and drawing, however my art skills are not yet good, a few years ago I decided to make my own manga but I never had the skills to do so, specially because its not my main area (I'm a coder), however my work required me to draw everything and ended up learning a lot of things.

I'm not sure how posting pictures / links work yet in this place so any advice on that would be great ^^, I usually upload with puush so...

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi!!

Aha, a fellow coder!!!!
This is indeed THE place to hang out :P
what sort of coding do you do?
I'm mostly Visual Basic at the moment :)

I don't know about puush, but you can post an image by it's direct link using bbcode like so:
Code: [Select]
a lot of image upload sites have a set of codes you can copy for posting in different places, and often has a forum version with the <img> tags already in place.

welcome to the forum and hopefully we'll see some of your work soon!!

Oh i see!

I code in c#, specifically in unity but i also coded for some the binding of isaac mods made in lua.

Unity is basically all i want for an engine :p

Anyway, this is a manga forum and thats what i'm going to be showing here :p

You know, when you said spriting I suspected you might have been a game programmer lol
I'm working to get back to Unity once I can make my own game graphics :P
If you want to show off bits of other stuff you're working on, we don't mind. It's not such a strict forum as there's sections for off-topic stuff. I mean I have a craft/sewing topic haha
But seeing manga would equally be awesome XD

Yeah spriting was the way to go for me about art, i got some nice animations but sometimes i still get stuck, i guess its what happens when you want to do many things xD (coding and art)

When I moved to a tablet (specifically to a cintiq) it was like some sort of magic for me, because i was better drawing on paper but i also hated how things work on paper, so that was like a magic trick.

I use it for work and sometimes when I draw concept art or just art in general, then i look to it and i think its awful, now I'm getting way better thanks to keeping on it.

I'm more a lover of manga than art though, I just love to see how it looks and reads so i work hard on getting to that point, same with games.

Yeah wanting to do a bunch of different stuff can get in the way of doing any of it well haha

I love drawing traditionally but I'm about 95% digital just because I can have a faster workflow and sort my work out better.

Most of the art I like is in the manga style, probably because that's sort of how I got into art.

Welcome to mangaraiders! It's neat to have another coder around! Suuper will finally have someone to talk to!

Welcome to MR! You can work on the drawing skills, just gotta be in for the long haul.

Coding is nice. Good to have you on board. I only have to know basic HTML/CSS for work, although I do enjoy wrapping my head around Javascript so I might get back to that at some point.
