Japanese Language / Re: Before you take a class!! read this.

Language is better learnt by talking with native speakers. I sucked at Chinese but after studying with fellow international Chinese students I quickly learnt to speak casual mandarin. The same went for my friend. He studied Japanese and he went to Japan for a month and came back and spoke the language much fluently.

The likely culprit will probably be a someone in a certain government. The UN, World bank, IMF and G20 govern the world economy say I would start there with the people who have access to them. Governments with major political and economical power are likely suspects such as the EU state, US, middle eastern countries, China, Japan, Russia, India,Israel or Brazil. Probably a high government official who has the resources and the guts to pull it of. If conspiracy theories are true then maybe the secret Illuminati might have a role stealing from these organisations. If it's only one man than he would need a giant technological edge over these organisations, like a computer hacker. Where he would be? Definitely no where in sight and probably not in the U.S. If the US government found out it's money is gone than it's 20x the NSA and CIA operations. The person is likely in an area where there's a dense population to hide in like a city and probably on the move. He/she has to be migrating to area to area, to avoid a global man hunt and confronted by the military and secret services.

 In a realistic sense, the scenario is impossible but theft does happens. Just keep an eye on where the taxpayer dollars are going to. Luckily money isn't getting digitized any time soon because who buys bitcoins? Anyway if the one man does steal he will have a hell of a ride. Nearly Everyone will be coming after his butt. I guarantee that.

I think the exercise can benefit everyone but I don't think I have the authority to start it. What to do?

recently watched Captain America 2 and it was better than expected.  Hail Hydra was a memorable quote. Though I can't believe the foods or snacks there are still over$priced.

The entire system collapses. Say goodbye to world economy and capitalism. Politicians, lawyers, and corporate giants of the 1% would lose their minds. IMF closes for good. War. The thief becomes most wanted. Plus sides, at least countries like the US won't have to worry about defaulting on its $ trillions debt. This is probably when the Fed Reserve printing may come in handy for once. If governments can't find something to replace the currency then everyone is screwed. If not massive anarchy while poverty and living conditions will quickly shoot the roofs. The people will start to form their own systems that can allocate resources... Yeah it be the end of the world.

I haven't made an emotional chart yet. It's a good idea, Thanks  ;D. Right now, I'm just playing around and practising facial expressions.

God I miss George Carlin. :(

I wished I could say those words as I only found his works and quotes just recently. His talk about the 'real owners' of the US was so true and same could be said here in Australia. He taught me more in an hour than my entire education at school. May his teachings be passed to future generations.

Have you tried making emotion charts? It's a good template to use and practise for drawing facial emotions of characters. The fine lining looks very clean btw

Since the premise is that those hostile gods are more powerful than humans then the question is how those humans will level the playing field. The group belonging to suicide bombers sound like guerrilla fighters. This type of warfare is seen with the Vietcong, civil war rebels and other modern conflicts. Usually if one side is under equipped and don't have the technology compared to the other they will use stealth and use their environment to their advantage. Straightly confronting a better armed forces is suicide and same can be said for those humans against the gods. Guerrilla warfare is effective for the underpowered humans and they can probably take them down with simple instruments. (There was a incident with the US navy where a small wooden boat loaded with explosives sailed to the port side and did a lot of damage and casualties. The rebel sailor died but he managed to use the navy's technology against themselves. The destroyer was too good that it was unable to detect the small boat. No one in the crew saw it coming as well. Some stories made good guerrilla myths such as Trojan Horse.

The other groups could be scientists and military if the story set in our reality. If they are able they can build technology for the army or civil militia groups to combat the gods.

From what I read, this exercise sounds very similar to what I done in a manga art program a few years ago. The tutor was a Taiwanese manga artist/graphic designer and taught here in tutes. Every month he would get the class split into groups of 3-4 people and every group is set to do a small one shot manga together at least 40+ pages long. (Large groups were harder to maintain and organise.) 1 or 2 people was tasked for Writing, while another 1 or 2 was tasked for Drawing. The time limit was 1 month and all the groups would show their manga even if it was not completed and exchanged opinions, feedbacks and criticisms. (I think this tested the constraints that a real manga team would face with actual publishers in Japan)

The management was flexible though as people can rotate and help each other out in their respective jobs. In Week 1, the group would discuss about the story of their manga. They would discuss the brief outline of the story and outline in done which includes the characters, potential scenes, and what they want out it as mangakas. Once that is done the allocated writers would complete the story overview with a 3 or 5'ish paged script and the artists would do character concepts and sketch the settings. Some people used photos and other images as source of references.

The second week is where the group comes back in class where the writers and artists come together to share what they done. Here is where modifications, reforms, and changes are done to satisfy everyone in the group. (Both scripts and concepts designs are usually changed from minor stuff to big parts of their work)

In Week 3 the artists and writers come together to do the storyboarding to "map" out their manga for the who group to see. This where allocation of panels and the number of pages of each scene is discussed. Writers would then judge how many and where the quotes and dialogue should be in the pannel for each page, while the artists decide what the "shots'" are going to be used. Ex. Close up on faces, poses for action scenes, establishment shots at the start to show the setting and etc.. After the story boarding is completed this is when the fun part starts.

In week 4 this is when artists and writers start to draw the actual manga. It's the busiest week because they have to get the drawings done. The writers are changed to artists as they help out with drawing the scenes as well and can do any final adjustments needed. The tutor sometimes gives us an extra few days or another week to finish our manga.

The students who were writers and artists would switch roles for their next project so everyone gets a taste of the jobs. I don't know if MR can do something similar to this since this exercise hardly been done on forums, (that I know of). I heard Japan and some American comic schools do this as on-line class projects. But it worked pretty well here and the class got a lot out of it. Any thoughts?

Thanks again,
@batkid Hopefully I can but there's still a lot that needs to be done. I'll try posting some samples in the future.
