Tips and Tutorials / Re: Request A Tutorial

What's a good tutorial/Book for someone who is a level 0 beginner. like no drawing experience, nothing. something to start someone from zero to something he'd be somewhat proud about what he drew?

hey sorry for not replying sooner. Yes, you are more than welcome to post your reviews here if you so wish. I am not looking for reviews as i'm merely just letting you all see the story as it comes about, however suggestions and reviews are amazing to see. and maybe even fan theory's if you guys wish to post them here. I'd love to see where your heads are at.

Manga Artists Wanted / Re: [UnPaid] Need Artist for Underworlders
« on: March 05, 2019, 05:21:41 PM »
Hey guys, I'm still looking for an artist on this project. This is still an unpaid thing, however, I want to put it into serialization or something in the future (one can dream high) so if any money is made from that, money will be divided equally. If you're interested or want to negotiate, hit me up!

IM BACK AT IT!

Chapter5

Underworlders
   Ayumu looked to his right, looking at a figured in the shape of a human silhouetted into the background of his closet. A light amber glow shined near the mouth of the shadow as smoke rose up from the corners of the lips.

   “Is that you?”

   “Do you believe me now?” As the silhouette moved forward, the light from the moon illuminated his face. He turned around some and leaned on to the nightstand to the side of Ayumu’s bed.

   “Yeah…,” said Ayumu with hesitation, “but I’m still not totally convinced that this isn’t just a dream.” Ayumu sat up in his bed, however, his body stayed planted on the pillow.

   The man rose his eyebrow. “Well, you are in the dream world, my friend.”

   “So I am dreaming?” Ayumu leaned forward, energetically.

   “You said it, not me.” the man chuckled slightly, moving towards the door. “You up for some food?”

   Ayumu got out of his bed, walking slowly over to the man. “I mean, what’s there to harm. It’s just a dream…”

   The two moved through the door, not even needing to open it. The man looked to Ayumu. “You’re only partially right there.”

   “What do you mean by that?”

   “Yes, you’re in the dream world, but you’re not dreaming in the sense that you’re experiencing something you have no control over…” The two of them walk down the stairs with swiftness, not making a sound. “But rather in another, separate, world. One that your mind goes to for rest.”

   “I’m not sure I understand…”

   “I’ll explain when we get to the cafe.”

   Ayumu and the man walked out of the house and into the night. A cool fall breeze fell moved through them, their hair waving in the wind. Ayumu looked at the man. “In my dreams, sometimes I can go from one place to another in an instant. Can we do that here too?”

   The man looked back to Ayumu, taking a long puff of air from the cigarette that lay in his mouth. “Well, of course, we can.” The man stopped and looked to Ayumu and placed his hand on his shoulder. In almost an instant, the two were standing in front of a cafe, a light shining down on them from the street lamp. Ayumu almost felt like throwing up. It was almost surreal. He started to lean back and forth some before placing out his hand to lean on the stone wall in front of him.

“I think I’m going to be sick,”

   The man placed his hand on Ayumu’s back, “It definitely takes some getting used to.”

   Ayumu tightly clenched his stomach with his arms, doing his best from throwing up, however after a few dry heaves, he realized he couldn’t keep it down. Quickly he ran up to a trash can to throw up.

   “Oh I should have told you, you probably don’t want to do that.”

   “Why?”

   “There’s a couple of reasons. The only one that’s important to you right now is that you’ll wake up in a mess of whatever food you ate this evening.

   “You’re kidding,” Ayumu replied. He took in a breath and coughed a few times, now stepping up and using the wall beside him to guide him.

   “Well let’s hope that you don’t wake up to that. Anyway, shall we?” He helped Ayumu up and walked through the two glass doors at the entrance of the building.

   When the two of them took their seats, two glasses, filled to the brim with a clear liquid, appeared in front of them.

   “What’s this?” asked Ayumu.

   “That is a Lemon Lime soda,” said the man. “I figured the carbonation of the drink should help with your little episode there,” Ayumu looked at him for a few seconds. “... and plus, it tastes good.”

   Ayumu chuckled a bit, picking up the glass in front of him and taking a sip from the glass. The drink was actually pretty cold and fizzed in his mouth for a bit before he swallowed it down. He put the glass back down on the table.

   “That is very refreshing, as you stated.”

   “I know, right? I love this drink.” the man took the glass and brought it up to his mouth. He lifted the bottom of his glass up high, and the liquid was practically swallowed into his mouth as if funneling into a drain. “Ahhhh!” he slouched back in his chair.
   Ayumu got up from the table and bowed down to the man. “I’m sorry, by the way.”

   The man eyed up Ayumu, curiously. “Why?”

   “Last time we were here, I laughed at you and didn’t take this seriously. That’s why.”

   “Please,” he said, taking his hand and placing it on Ayumu’s forehead, pushing him back to his seat. “I did the same thing when I was told for the first time.”

   “Still, I feel bad.” he sat back into the cushion of the booth seat. “Well, I’m ready to listen this time.”

   The man nodded, leaning forward into the table. “Ok, so where did we leave off,” he asked to himself. It took him a few moments to remember. “Ah, that’s right. The creatures feast off of our dreams. It sounds weird, I know, but it all has to do with energy.” he looked at the table, trying to think of the best way to explain it to Ayumu. “When you dream, your mind is reacting off of the energy in your body. It’s because of this energy that you have dreams.”

   Ayumu picked up his glass of soda and took in a large gulp. “Mhmm..”

   “That energy radiates off of you, like waves in a pool. The creatures, or Underworlders, see these waves and follow it to its source. That’s when the feast begins. They suck your mind dry of the energy, but…” he paused for a moment. “It’s not as easy as you think. Your mind will fight back with its willpower. You actually get to experience this fight, like the experience you had just last night.”

   “So, a nightmare?”

   “Precisely. A nightmare is essentially the fight between your mind and the Underworlder. Of course, you don’t get nightmares every night. Underworders usually tend to go to the most radiant energy source. With most people, their energy radiates at variable rates, depending on many different factors.”

   “... And so my energy radiant was pretty high yesterday”

   “Very high, indeed.” the man placed his hand up and out to his side. Within an instant, a bag of chips appeared in his hand. “You increased it by eating junk food before you went to bed. Your body reacted on that and your mind used that energy.”

   Ayumu laid back in his chair. “I see...” he crossed his arms. “But there’s one thing I don’t understand.” He looked forward towards the man in his eyes. “Why did you show up in my dream?”

   The man leans back in his seat, taking a large gulp out of his drink. “You were stuck in the dream sequence. The Underworlder you were fighting was just slightly stronger than you. So I assisted your mind in fighting it off. However, when your mind wins the fight,” he lifted his hand into the air between the two of them. “Your mind will wake you up abruptly as a defense to keep you from another attack.”

   Ayumu placed his finger and his thumb to the base his chin. “But I didn’t wake up that night. ”

   The man nodded. “Correct. Your mind froze itself in the dream world. It’s a very rare phenomenon. Honestly, I haven’t seen it before besides when it happened to me...”

   “Why would my mind freeze me in the dream world?”

   “Your will was strong enough that it did not see a need to leave the dream world. This is slightly dangerous however because your mind will stay there and you will be forced into a comostaces state. This is why you saw me. I needed to guide you out of that state.”

   Ayumu pondered for a moment. “Ok, I see.” He took a sip from his drink. “You also looked much different in my dream too.”

   “Well, I made myself look like someone who would be comforting to you. A teacher is only there to help you, and never to hurt you. Honestly, it was the best that I could come up with at the moment.”

   Ayumu nodded in understanding. He went to grab his drink however when he took a sip, he heard what sounded like air pushing its way through liquid. It was empty. “Damn,” he said, placing the cup back down and looked back to the man. “Ok, so next question. What do you have to do with all this? Who are you?”

   The man froze for a moment, pondering.”Call me Heilen”

Chibis are definitely good for building confidence. They at least mean you can do something. Which is the first step to doing a lot of things. Good luck!

Thank you sir!

Hey thank you much! I'm right now doing a Chibi tutorial by Mark Crilley. I'll add it here when I can, but Chibi's are pretty easy yet I still have a little work to do it from my imagination. I may learn Chibi's first so I dont get too discouraged as a starting point. And After that, Ill move on from there!
