General Manga writer discussions / NaNoWrimo 2020
« on: November 11, 2020, 04:59:07 PM »
Joining in for fun, really. Damn the interface has changed haha.

The last time I did this was 2011 so a few years ago at least.

As with Inktober, I've sort of let this pass me by because I was too anxious (ironically) of completing it successfully or doing it properly, so I'm joining this Nano with the explicit expectation that I will not be able to reach 50,000 words by the end of the month, but I'm glad to have participated.

I'm usually a lot more sure and gun-ho about this stuff (or was) so I'm hoping this will knock something loose productivity-wise.

Also joining Nasoalmo for sure.

General Discussion / Eating Aeroplanes
« on: November 05, 2020, 05:26:35 AM »
You may have heard of this dude in passing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_Lotito

I think I've found the thing that'll make me keep at regimens all the time, and drawing and music in general. It's sort of vague and personal idea but basically, if you can eat an aeroplane, then given enough time and with smart planning and compartmentalisation you can tackle even huge random ridiculous tasks like say writing a million words or drawing something 1,000 times.

And I've always felt weird about the aimlessness of doing something repeatedly or tackling huge tasks, like what's the point? My answer is like: Why not? Monsieur Lotito did get some fame and that's something tangible and nice to have, but I think even that just doing it because I want to is more than enough.

Sort of a big breakthrough and I need to frame it better over time but yeah that's my basic rambling.

Manga Drawing Workshop / Sensei Raider Workshop Challenge
« on: August 08, 2020, 04:33:33 PM »
Create a 1 Week Drawing course to teach other participants something new.

This is a workshop where you have to not only commit to learning something for a week, you have to teach as well. The master shall become the student, and the student the master.

If you're interested

1. Introduce yourself and your direction of art (yes most likely manga but what do you want to do ideally? Comics? Illustrations? Shounen? Ecchi?)

2. I will randomly choose the next Sensei as soon as at least 3 people join. 

3. After every week a new Sensei will be chosen and others will become the students

4. Students must post progress and at least follow the sensei's curriculum. Otherwise it won't work

Manga Creations / A Special Announcement From 4KCU'S Literature Bloc
« on: April 10, 2020, 07:39:38 AM »


We have a special announcement to make for all of the citizens of our great empire. After the work of the countless proud and tireless agents in our ranks, we have finally come up with a republishing of freshly revitalized stories that have been selected edited thoroughly and precisely for maximum entertainment value and safe, reasonable consumption.

Let it be known: The fact that we hate manga and anime is an absolute myth. Why else would we work on such helplessly controversial stories to bring them to their purest standards? Truly it's only a labour of love and excellence that has led to this work.

However, there still remains a lot of work to be done. The work never ends, but we find joy in the work, freedom in the work.

Your Proud Director,

Agonia Cult, 4th Chorus Heresy

Here is a list of our republished works.  It will be updated over time. That being said, posession of any of the older versions of these stories will lead to punishment an a 2 week Re-education course. Active distribution of these works will mean death.

Anime Talk / Tower of God
« on: April 02, 2020, 09:10:15 AM »
So the anime is finally out! I've been reading this webcomic for ages. Anybody else read it?

This is pretty big: A manwha getting an anime like this. Opens the door for a lot of other cool stuff I'd love to see animated too.

Anime Talk / Beastars Netflix
« on: March 21, 2020, 06:09:52 PM »
Well this was an... Interesting watch to say the least. I know I'm way past mentioning something is seinen or not, but at least as I watched this I really got the feeling that yeah, this is seinen.

Anyhow it's an anthromorphic highschool life involving the titular character... LEGOSHI (who is a wolf in this case, but I loved the hell out of that coincidence.) and his romantic feelings for a rabbit that he meets.

This is the epitome of 3d-2d art. Well... One notch below Unlimited Blade Works but still pretty high up there. Impressive graphics. The story is a slow burn if there ever was one, and the season is down right story-amputation for the sake of continuation but I was happy watching this.

Try it out if you're interested. First episode is enough to give you a feel for what to expect.

Manga Talk / This Croc Will die in 100 Days
« on: March 21, 2020, 06:02:59 PM »
I only started hearing of it more and more because it was approaching the end. This is a twitter- based 4-koma about this character... Croc. I must fully admit I only joined the ride at the last minute and read the last five chapters. I love the entire concept and execution though.

https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-03-20/100-nichi-go-ni-shinu-wani-manga-gets-anime-film/.157735

It's getting an anime film too so I'll be looking forward to that

General Discussion / Trace & Draw Medibang Competition
« on: March 21, 2020, 10:41:40 AM »
https://medibang.com/contest/tracedrawing/?Adm

Found this interesting competition going on. I won't be joining it, but I'm definitely liking this software a lot more. Every time I install GIMP something always goes amazingly wrong haha. This one works out quite well for me though.

Anyways I love that the tracing aspect is being encouraged in this context. This is the sort of thing I wish I'd gotten into earlier during my art career. Right now I'm so scared of tracing and using references it's become detrimental to my visual library.

I wonder if there are other nice competitoins out there that I haven't been paying attention to.

Manga Artists Battle Ground / Dodge that Punch!
« on: March 05, 2020, 10:03:47 AM »
https://aggie.io/ry3qhwbo59


Using this public canvas, I want your daring hero to attempt to dodge the character punch on display. Don't worry, if more of you want to participate just jump on another layer, turn one invisible and draw your dodging character. They may be stick figures.

I'll draw over both characters and make a sort of final image in both cases. Troll the canvas or draw something as cool as possible: We are here to see if your hero has what it takes to dodge that punch! (Warning kicks, sword slashes and guns may or may not show up.)

Manga Talk / Kimetsu no Yaiba
« on: March 05, 2020, 09:22:32 AM »


Because of how dated the manga cover seemed I didn't really pay this any attention. My mistake. This is a great read. It even made me watch 10 episodes of the anime after the fact, and I've got to say it definitely does the manga justice.

This feels like such a fresh raw version of shounen manga. It has a well thought out fighting system that focuses on breaths (hello hamon?) and the neck as a weakpoint (although once or twice you get the feeling the author didn't develop some certain things).

There are many familiar troupe characters as you'd expect, but the battles truly feel thought out and desperate as you would expect in something like HxH for example. The arc I'm on right now has me seriously breaking out in a sweat for the characters, and the villains feel truly threatening. Check it out if you want! In this case even the anime suffices because the first arc is so well written if you dislike that arc in anime then you'll probably not like it in manga form. Either way, check it out.

Manga Talk / Chainsawman
« on: March 05, 2020, 09:18:23 AM »


Balls to the walls no nonsense action with a protagonist that's impressively shounen-like in a seinen world, only for you to discover he isn't the craziest of the bunch. People die when they are killed in this manga, and fast paced is its first name.

I was made aware of the mangaka after reading Fire Punch, a rawer version of the themes that show up in Chainsaw man. I recommend both of them. It's not everyones' cup of tea but I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

Also calling it: It's definitely getting an anime. And I'm going to watch it.

CosPlay / Legos Craftcorner
« on: February 26, 2020, 06:52:12 PM »
Going to be getting into this on the down low because apparently you can make stick men out of wire. And I think I'll be doing 1,000 origami for real just for fur.

Honestly I wish I could just directly work on Cosplay: I definitely have the ideas. Or at least make cool puppets with anime themes. Ashley Wood is such an inspiration when it comes to being an artist that has gotten into puppet making, but for now my crafts will be as humble as can be.

Hahaha I am further and further away from the traditional manga/anime mould but I think I should've done so much sooner. The world is much bigger than I thought and I'm excited about learning new things.


My first things: A wire boy with putty and some pipecleaner stickmen!
