Pretty cool manga there Ogono. Love how One Piece it looks. Interesting character designs and backgrounds. Welcome to mangaraiders!

Your painting is improving a hell of a lot, Nomena. Amazing work. I just like how the lighting has improved as well.

It seems she does! It's hard to see it is your without those bright yellow texts of yours. School has been a son of a gun, huh'?

Oh, Krita is good. Lot's of flow. If I change programs it'd be one to consider.

I'll stick by my exuses lel lel lel

Like the colours you worked with there, and that little comic haha. Welcome back !

Too much time, it seems. I just threw on some Type O Negative, and next thing you know, I'm drawing one of my old favorite OCs. She's quite a piece of work. And, just for Lego, I saved my sketch phases.

Phase 1: the sketchy sketch:

Pretty self explanatory. I take the pencil tool in MSPaint and just have at it. The torso looked so good before I tacked arms onto the pose. I hate when that happens. The background came too easily listening to goth rock, but you can see the beginnings of a lot of my anatomy problems here.

Phase 2: figure out an outline, maybe:

This is where I try to lay down what exactly I want the outline to do. I still have a little bit of sketchiness going on here, and usually I'd get rid of it, but I honestly was just jamming and messing around for this piece, so you won't see an actual outline for this one. After I'm done, I'll take the fill bucket and go around with the lighter grey I did the initial sketch phase with so it's all picked up, then switch the fill bucket to white to get rid of all the sketch lines. After repeating the process a few times, you can see how that works pretty well. Shane has pointed out to me in Skype that the direction the ear is facing is incorrect.

Phase 3: fill bucket some base color:

I'm sure you can imagine that if I had an actual outline, this would look much prettier. I mess around with the color mixer a lot, and I wanted to see what I could do for a sort of moonlit color, so I took some base colors in the palette and dragged them closer to grey and on the slider scale I pulled them closer to black. I did this for all except the skin tone, which I started with grey and pulled upwards towards red a little, and that was it.

After this, I'd usually go in for a darker/cooler color for shading and a lighter color for highlights (in this case, probably blue-based, for moonlight purposes), buuuut I don't really care to go past this for now. I just wanted to doodle her since I haven't in forever. If you scroll back through my gallery far enough, you'll see her around quite a bit.

Her name's Mizzie, btw. Mizzie Kristofer. As for her being shirtless in the moonlight, well--I'm not showing anything explicit, so it totally doesn't count. The out-of-frame hand is probably holding a cigarette tbh. Since I don't consider this a sexualized image (I honestly just didn't want to draw her jacket and liked my sketchlines for her hips and spine), I hope that y'all agree that it's more of a chillaxed setting.

Also... Muchos appreciatas. This'll come in handy. I'll see what I can come up with soonish along these guidelines.

The Kanbaru image made my existence! So damn good! Really a treat to see your stuff, Danbaru. It's a sight for sore eyes indeed.

Really like your colourwork Narutogod. I like the flow of the comics too. Destruction doesn't seem like my cup of tea personally, but it's an interesting concept for sure. Keep at it!

Thankee suuper!

Haha glad that the fight scene was readeable at least... Except black coat is a gal :(((

Yeah the animation went wonky in a bad way. I knew something was wrong but I couldn't figure it out hahaha. Thank goodness. And yeah man steal away. To be honest I'm shocked nobody tries animating stuff more. The pay off is so much worth the fiddling around between frames haha.


I've always wondered about that. I guess the lines always look bad if I don't use the line tool or something, so I'll need to use a thicker brush. Sigh. It's the curse of no pressure sensitivity.

Damn that's a level up on your art. Haven't checked out your stuff in a while.

If I had your omake slinging abilities I'd be drawing myself clapping hands at this awesomeness in a looped gif. Great grind suuper, great grind.

Love the eyes for sure. You're almost there man. Now it's my turn to ask for when the comic projects come along haha.

How goes the ones you were working on anyways?

Really awesome dump man. Inspiring stuff.

Do you have pinterest? Always use pinterest if you're sorely looking for inspiration and such.

Also check out this Inoue Takehiko interview

If  you can take away anything, then I'd suggest for just 1 saturday, any saturday where you have 10 minutes to spare... Go to a nearby coffee shop, order a coffee and try drawing a storyboard as you drink. Don't think of making a complete manga or a complete page or even something that makes sense. Just try to make some squares and add some stick figures that speak to eachother, then go back home.

As Takehiko sensei says...'Humans are weak.' You'll find that being away from your homespace will be really beneficial to your creativity. At least I hope haha
