break Room / Earth Quakes

Hope everyone is OK. Seems there was just another big one, 7.6, near India, besides the one in China yesterday, and the one in Japan. Three big earthquakes so close together is rare... There was a slightly smaller on in Indonesia today, too

Naruto Anime / Naruto Card Game
« on: August 10, 2009, 02:49:07 AM »
I just bought a huge collection (over 100 pounds) of cards... Yugioh, Pokemon, M:TG, etc... and found these two in the box. I didn't even know there was a Naruto card game. Is it any good? I used to play a lot of M:TG, is it anything like that, or more for younger kids?

Manga Drawing Workshop / Paper Doll Workshop
« on: August 10, 2009, 02:32:55 AM »
There hasn't been a new workshop in a while, so how about this. Draw a paper doll. I used to make these all the time. You start by drawing a figure without clothes (I've given mine a swimsuit for modesty in this post :-)... once you have the figure, you simply lay a piece of paper over it (A lightbox helps) or use a second layer in Photoshop if you're drawing digitally, and draw an outfit for your doll. Then repeat. You can get a better idea from the one I just did. I drew a figure, then on my lightbox, laid a new sheet of paper over her, and drew her a school outfit. I then did the same thing and drew another outfit. There's no end to it, you can create all sorts of outfits for your doll, shoes, hats, glasses, hairstyles, etc... it's actually a lot of fun, and good drawing practice. You can then color them and cut them out and play with them if you're REALLY weird.

Tips and Tutorials / Tutorial: Grayscaling In Gimp

AnimeDoodler asked for this, but I thought I'd share it with others if you're thinking about shading your art for the anthology. It's not very complete, just the basics, so feel free to ask questions

MR Anthology Archives / General Questions
« on: August 02, 2009, 09:39:15 PM »
I've been asked a few basic questions about the anthology, so let's just post all general questions here... What is the anthology, who can participate, will there be other issues, etc. Any questions that don't fit in the other topics.

MR Anthology Archives / Vol 1 Copyright
« on: August 02, 2009, 04:11:03 AM »
Another thing I'd point out is copyright. I just take these rules for granted because I've been in so many anthologies, but for those who are new to the whole printing thing:

You, the creator, retain ALL copyrights to your story, your characters, your ideas. By submitting a story you are simply granting us the right to publish, not giving away any of your rights. In fact, we can't even reprint your story at a later date without your permission. According to almost all world copyright laws now, copyright is not something you need to apply for, you are granted copyright to your creations at the moment of creation. Meaning, you are automatically given copyright protection for anything you create. By submitting a story, you are simply telling us we have your permission to print the story one time, in the book you are submitting the story to.

This might sound boring now, but if one of your stories really catches on... say, a huge movie studio buys your story... you get all the money as the copyright owner... the publisher (in this case and me) get nothing. Your creative work remains entirely your own.

This just blew me away... she has a bunch of other videos on youtube, too...

break Room / Pics Of My Backyard
« on: July 24, 2009, 03:57:08 PM »
Since everyone's posting pics :-) I acually forgot I had the soft focus setting on my camera, so they look a little 'dream-like' :-) Anyway, bits of my backyard. The stream you see runs along the left side of the field in pic one

Collaboration (Art Exchange) / Writer / Artist Colab
« on: July 23, 2009, 10:45:56 PM »
It just hit me when I posted in the writers forum, but this would probably be a good idea.  What I have in mind is coming up with a 24 page story, just the basic story idea, not writing it... then, writers can take 3-5 pages and write that part... I'll keep control of it so, if i see one writer going in a specific direction, the next writer can get an idea where to go.

We can reach agreement on the type of story, then, with a simple outline from me, we can split it up among writers here.

Once written, we can divide the story up and let artists draw parts, again, 3-5 pages each. When finished, we'll publish it.

Just a thought, and pretty raw at this point, but what do you guys think? It's a good way to bring the writers in on some printed work for their portfolios, and good practice for artists to draw other people's stories.

Movies and TV shows / Any Other 'Time Team' Fans?
« on: July 15, 2009, 08:33:49 PM »
It's a British archaeology show with Tony Robinson as host. It's been running for 16 seasons, 13 episodes plus a few specials every year... I'm proud to say I have every episode. It's one of my all-time favorite TV shows. It takes a normally VERY boring thing (I had a couple of archaeology classes in college... there's NOTHING more boring) and makes it entertaining and fun...

There's actually going to be a Time Team America starting soon... I've seen the pilot episode... like almost all American FAKE educational shows, it's just a bunch of pretty faces fighting over camera time and reading words from a script.

Anime Talk / The Summer Anime Season Is Starting!
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:50:56 PM »
Some of the new stuff is on torrents right now... I'm checking out Bakemonogatari, Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Princess Lover, and Kanamemo so far. I'll let you know how they are. Looks like a good mix of comedy, ecchi, and horror/mystery.

Anyone else keeping up with the new stuff?

Quick update... Though Umineko looks interesting, it has child abuse in it with the usual Japanese 'well, we can't interfere, it's a family problem' bullsh!t. While they stand there and watch a little girl get horribly slapped a couple of times then the mom apologizes and all is well. So, no thanks.

Princess Lover looks pretty cool... lots of big bouncin' boobies. Kinda hard to follow the story with ep 1, though.

Bakemonogatari just looks like another 'weak puny male bossed around by a mysterious female' anime... how many of these to we need?! Gez... are Japanese men REALLY this spineless? How can they even eat solid food?!

But... Kanamemo is a real WINNER! This one will be famous. I'll be following this one.

Another update. I just watched the first ep of Sora no Manimani. GREAT! A Winner! And, it has one of my favorite voice actors, Ami Koshimizu. It also has Haruka Tomatsu, the voice of Lala in To Love-Ru. So, this one is a major release and will be one of the big hits of the season.
