General Manga writer discussions / I need writing help - Character speech?
« on: December 05, 2013, 11:31:32 PM »
Okay, I'm really not sure if this is in the right section, but...
One thing I've realized in my writing... All of my characters speak the same way. They use a lot of the same words, and sometimes it's hard to even tell who's talking because there's nothing distinctive in their speech. I have one character who's very smart, he speaks very calmly, he uses bigger, smarter words, he speaks very politely, he has perfect grammar, even speaking formally would be a good way to put it. After writing a lot of his dialogue, I realized I was writing all of my characters that way. But a lot of my characters shouldn't speak that way. I have reckless and adventurous characters who need to be louder and clumsier with their words, I have children characters who need to have younger speech, I have characters who are kinda stubborn and reluctant to warm up to people, and they need to have colder, less welcoming speech... I have characters of many other personalities who need their speech changed, but I think you guys get the idea.
Point is, since I've gotten into the habit of writing the character's dialogue the same way, I can't figure out how to break the habit. I used to have a fairly good sense of how my characters should talk, and they were all pretty distinctive, but I've been writing them this way for so long, I've kinda brainwashed myself of that...

If anyone has any sort of advice, writing exercises, words I can use for certain personalities to understand how they should speak, anything like that would really be helpful...

I appreciate it! :heart:

break Room / Holiday traditions?
« on: December 03, 2013, 01:44:37 PM »
My family has lots of traditions all through the holiday season. So I was wondering, what are your holiday traditions? ^-^

Here's a few from my family, there are more, it would just take too long to name them xD

 Thanksgiving breakfast consists of pie dough and hot chocolate. I have no idea how that started but it's always been that way xD

The day after Thanksgiving is our official Christmas tree day. We set up and decorate the tree while eating Christmas cookies we baked earlier that day.

We always take a walk around the neighborhood sometime in December to see the Christmas lights on all the houses.

Christmas Eve, we watch a Christmas movie that night, and afterwards it's always a tradition to get an early present. That present is our "Christmas Eve pajamas" lol... I have no idea how that started, but ever since I was little, my parents would always give all of us (even themselves lol) pajamas on Christmas Eve and we've just kept doing it every year. xD

Christmas morning, our breakfast is mini donuts. That's right. Mini donuts. We tend to have unhealthy breakfasts on holidays, and I'm not sure why? lol but if my grandparents come over for breakfast, we make omelets or something because they don't want just donuts xD After eating breakfast, we open presents.

Then our Christmas lunch/dinner isn't a big feast or anything... It just consists of finger foods mostly. We get a ham to bake, we get meat and cheese trays, crackers, we make dips, and just stuff like that and we just leave it out all day to snack on when we want it lol.

So there are a few of mine... Yeah, some may be weird, but they're still fun. xD
What're your traditions? :3

Suggestions And Feedback / A suggestion - Forum Mascot
« on: November 29, 2013, 02:13:24 PM »
Okay, so I don't know if anybody will like this idea, but I thought it could be fun.
What if MR had a mascot? I've seen forums and other sites do it before... It could just be a character, animal or human, to kind of represent the forum. So they could be in the banner and such. We could also hold a design contest! So members could draw their own designs, and the winner could either be chosen by the admins, or it could be a vote! I know I have a few ideas I'd like to create and submit if we did that...

Just something to consider. Tell me what you guys think! ^-^

break Room / Starting a blog - Should I use Blogger or Wordpress?
« on: November 24, 2013, 02:31:29 PM »
I hope this is the right place to post this...
 But I'd like to start an art blog. I haven't been able to decide if I want to use Blogger or Wordpress. I need something where I can customize the background/banner/etc with my own artwork. This will be my first blog, so I'd prefer something that's not too difficult to figure out. xD

I'm kinda leaning towards Blogger, but what do you guys think?

Thanks! :3

Manga Art Gallery / My artwork!
« on: November 22, 2013, 03:45:57 PM »
Here's some examples of my latest work!

I would've liked to have just been able to post my drawings directly on here, but they're way too big and I'm having difficulty resizing them to be small enough, so I just have to post my DA link xP

Anyway... Comments, critiques, and constructive criticism are appreciated! :3

Welcome Center / Hi there! :3
« on: November 22, 2013, 12:36:17 PM »
I'm not very good at introductions, but I'll try...

Hi! xD
I'm MissChurro, but you can call me Churro. I've doodled for as long as I can remember, but I started drawing seriously back in 2011. I started drawing manga after being inspired by Mark Crilley's how-to-draw manga videos. I think there's a true beauty in the manga style, and it's become my passion. I also have a passion for writing, and so soon I started writing my own manga! It's my dream to write, illustrate, and publish it! My favorite manga/anime is Naruto. My favorite anime movies are My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and essentially anything else by Studio Ghibli. :3

I've been looking for a message board to join where I can meet friends who share my interests. I hope to find some here!

See you around!
