General Discussion / Creative Block
« on: September 30, 2022, 07:21:50 PM »
For the past couple of weeks been going through a major creative block and not sure what to do. Usually I'm very day dreamy and always thinking about the future and stuff, but haven't seen the point of day dreaming lately. I feel as though I'm losing an important part of myself. Also I'm so stressed out from work tonight that I think it would really help to be able to draw some but can't think of anything to draw because of creative block.

General Discussion / What To Do About Doubts
« on: January 21, 2022, 06:15:21 PM »
Lately my minds been so full of doubts due to Dr saying I have ADHD and it's even effecting my drawing and even my creativity. I really want to be a comic book artist and hopefully be able make enough money out of it that I can finally quit my fast food restaurant job but I keep having doubts in my mind. I keep thinking thoughts like what does it even matter if I become a comic book artist I will still have a disability. Usually at times like this I would think ahead to what the future might hold for me because that's the way my mind usually is but the doubts even get in the way of that. Dreams can't really come true I will think to myself. Unfortunately because of court order I have to see this doctor. Is there anything I can do?

General Discussion / How To Get Started As A Manga Artist
« on: November 11, 2021, 08:33:18 AM »
Right now while I'm still single and have no kids I want to focus on my career especially becoming a manga artist. One of my problems is I have so many ideas and am rather disorganized which makes it hard for me to get my ideas down and sort through my ideas. I've been told to just pick an idea and stick with it but I often will eventually get tired of one idea and want to focus on another for the moment. Sometimes I wish I could just stick with one idea but I guess my brain just isn't like that. I've been told once I can get my ideas more sorted I should go to a comic book publisher but I don't like that idea. Besides if I was to take my ideas to a publisher they probably would want me to make a lot of changes to it. Besides I like the idea of publishing my own manga anyway. Still I have such a hard time sorting through ideas and sticking with them not to mention motivating myself that I feel I will never become a manga artist. Besides I often feel I should be one already. Any ideas how I can finally get started as a manga artist.

Welcome Center / Hi I'm Back
« on: May 25, 2021, 06:23:29 PM »
Hi I'm back here on manga raiders. I was on a discord server for manga art but they eventually bullied me for getting on then getting off when the conversation got to be too much so now I'm back here. Just can't seem to find a good community of artist online :(
It doesn't help that I don't have much time to hangout these days as I'm now working full time now that I have finally moved out on my own and am limited on transportation for now or else I would hang out more with fellow artist in my community. I find that people are nicer in person than online plus imo nothing beats meeting up in person. Anyway I hope you will welcome me back.

General Manga writer discussions / World Building
« on: January 25, 2021, 08:28:11 AM »
For a very long time I have had this idea for a fantasy forest world but never thought much about developing it further until recently. I find myself struggling to find a way to develop this world that works for me. I've tried a voice recording app on my phone but it feels awkward talking about my imaginary world to my phone. I've also tried creating mood boards on pinterest and while it's a great way to get inspiration it's not a good way to get my thoughts and ideas down. Now I'm trying drawing concept art of the world and characters in a sketchbook since I'm more of a visual and hands on person and usually like to draw what my characters look like before writing about them. Hopefully this idea will help but I'm not entirely sure. Any other advice on world building would be appreciated. Also sorry if all this sounds very awkward.

break Room / Career Advice
« on: December 31, 2020, 07:57:43 AM »
I'm going to talk to a career counselor next week but I thought I'd get your input. I'm currently working at McDonalds and have been working there for a year and a half and while it pays the bills and allows me to live on my own I eventually want to move on to better things. I really enjoy writing and drawing and have thought about being a manga artist but cant seem to motivate myself to make a manga and besides I dont always like to draw and write. Most of the time I'd rather loaf around and play video games but cant really make a career out of that. If I knew more about computers and programming and stuff like that maybe I could make video games instead. I would like to learn more about computers especially making video games instead of playing them but I'm also very impatient and I hate to say this but I also lack focus. I suppose to start out with I could make a video game with rpg maker wouldn't be much but it would be a start for learning how to make a video game. Perhaps I could do both make manga and video games someday. However I also I get the weird feeling like I'm more meant to be some kind of leader and that art is more of a hobbie of mine. perhaps I'm meant to be an activist of some sort, but I'm unsure what I'm really passionate about. 

Graphic Softwares / Best Free App For Digital Art
« on: March 08, 2020, 11:58:09 AM »
I managed to get out my wacom tablet and am thinking about getting back into drawing on my computer. Now I'm wondering what would be the best app for me to use on my computer for digital art.  I mostly draw manga style and want to eventually make a manga someday completely digitally. I have read a book on how to make a comic digitally on the computer using Photoshop. I use to have Photoshop back when I was in college, but I find it too expensive and besides I'm finding drawing is really just a hobby for me so I'd rather use something free. Currently I have sketchbook pro and krita installed on my computer which are both free and plan on comparing the two programs to see what's best for me. However, I kind of want to hear what you have to say. 

Music / How Has Your Music Changed
« on: March 03, 2020, 12:59:48 PM »
I'm just curious how has you're interest in music changed over the years. Growing up I would listen to whatever my parents would listen to which was country. As I got into middle school I got into pop. Back then pop was very different then what it is now. By around 2012 I stopped listening to pop as much except for some of the pop I listened to in middle school and switched to rock.

break Room / Am I A Natural Born Artist
« on: February 19, 2020, 06:47:06 PM »
I'm suddenly wondering if I'm a natural born artist. I'm reading that most natural born artist are into art at a young age. I didn't get into art though until I was about in 2nd grade and started getting inspired by all the tv shows I would watch and stuff like that. When I was younger though about 5 I didn't have as much interest in drawing and would draw people as stick figures. By 4th grade though I won 3rd place in a state wide art contest, which I consider my biggest accomplishment. Also I come from a rather artistic family on my dad's side. My dad has mentioned to me that back when he was a teenager the family would get together and play music. Also my uncle use to oil paint. I often doubt in my own abilities though, but I guess I'm my own worst critic. Also I have a hard time staying on task and focusing for very long.

break Room / Losing Interest
« on: February 13, 2020, 05:20:11 PM »
Lately I seem to be losing interest in being an artist. Whenever I draw or write these days it feels more like a chore then something fun. It seem like I'm forcing ideas out of me then letting them come naturally.  It use to be that when I was really little I would get my inspiration from the tv shows and movies I would like but these days I'm just not as into watching video as I was when I was a kid. Maybe I need a new inspiration but I'm not sure what. I kind of like video games so maybe I could get inspiration from the video games I play. I kind of feel like I need a new hobby but nothing seems interesting. I thought about getting more into fashion (I'm a girl by the way) but I absolutely hate shopping for clothes mostly because it's impossible to find nice clothes in my size. I could try to lose weight so I could actually fit into nicer clothes but because of my genetics it's impossible for me to lose weight so what's the point of trying to lose weight. I also thought about getting into video game design since I like video games but I seem to lose interest in that rather quickly too. It seems I'm bored with everything these days. What can I do? I feel like I have no passion in life anymore.

Welcome Center / Back Under A New Name
« on: January 10, 2020, 07:23:07 PM »
Hi. I use to go by the name GalaxyDreamer90 on here. I haven't been here in a while and a lot has changed since then. First off I have since graduated from college and gotten a job. Now that I got a job and am making a little money I am about to finally move out in a couple of months. In fact I have began sorting through my stuff and packing already. I even have a boyfriend now. I still aspire to be a manga artist someday, but it doesn't help that I'm really disorganized and have a ton of ideas not to mention a short attention span. Still deep down I believe I can be a good manga artist. Hope to get a warm welcome back.
