Develop Your Story / Re: Excerpts from Op's Writing Trove
« on: July 26, 2019, 05:40:46 AM »
I really enjoyed 'A Mordbid Discussion'. It resonates with a lot of what my favourite writing is like. Short scenes that hint at something greater and are laser focused on one issue. I'm bad at grand stories, but love micro-scenes like that.  Nicely written and cool dialogue too. Quite cinematic.

Like the flag story as well.

Good stuff Op

I too wish to make this legendary switch one time in the future. Or become a starving artist XD

Sorry I totally conked out as I do. My renpy was totally out of date and yes now it works.

Suuper you think you're going to get back on this horse soonish? I was actually planning on ninja-coding some of the newer scenes but yeah I don't want to sphagetti the code again haha.

The artist for Dr. Stone is awesome. You should check out Sun-Ken Rock by him. It's Seinen and quite ecchi but epic too.

Joined it. And Bumping threads is a no-go, Vikings. For future reference.

The mind can really mess with you on that front. Well, everyone hates failure so that's understandeable, but I'm learning day by day that failing is pretty useful in knowing how to improve on something or knowing when to go a completely different direction. I actually want to seriously try at being a webcomic artist to see how far I go haha.

I found it much better, but I've actually been inspired by this instagram to go a wholly different direction for stick figures.
I want them to always be this large. I guess it feels like a stretch to call them stick figures anymore, but I need them to be like this for the sake of volume and layering.  (That being said there's still some stuff on pinterest that makes me say 'Dammit, stick figures can still be expressive as heck. People are talented in everything, I tell ya)

Long time no see Echo. Like your new profile pic, did you draw it?

@suuper Yes the thumbnail thing has been a godsend its ridiculous man. The things one ignores because of impatience and stubbornness... Sigh. Well I'm definitely thumbnailing a lot more now to make characters. I'll post my efforts soon.

And dude this guy is aces. I see what you mean about the doodling thing though. He works with just lines and it feels relaxed enough to encourage me. But man can he add details. You know, this reminds me of your random pipe and circuitry drawings. Haven't seen any of those in a while. Do you still do them? I liked them a lot!

For now... I've reached 1,000 somewhere along the line. I'm really enjoying this regimen. I'm having nice moments of peacefully zoning out without stressing about everything and that's great.

Order is a bit messed up and low quality because I'm working with A3 papers. Love this size.

Poor  Kite. He never catches a break. Amazing that you got it fully coloured and everything. How long did it take to make?

I appreciate that I can see everything that's happening. You have a nice sense of positioning that tells me where exactly the characters stand and what is happening.

I feel like you can solve some of the more complicated poses with some simple reference though (Kite pointing his gun.) It would make a small but important difference in how the scene looks methinks.

Awesome stuff Walter!

Yeah that guy looks like he can mess your day up. I should really learn to make more humanoid characters like this. Seems like it'd be a fun thing to learn.

Potentially infinite is an optimistic way to put it hahaha.

Dude suuper. Literally clapped hands for you here. This is just amazing. You're really hitting at the treadmill. This is the sort of practice that I want in my daily life. Even if I don't gain anything I just love the comforting confident thought that comes with knowing that you've worked hard at something and are doing it of your own volition.

Your work with clothing has definitely improved leaps and bounds, and you're always working with such fully formed figures. It doesn't seem like you take a lot of shortcuts and that's good.

Glad to hear the vacation bolstered your motivation, and it's cool to see you around again. And as for the reference thing absolutely. I just need a reliable hack that has me able to use reference without distracting me from my zone. My mental stamina is so low that even quickly looking up a gun pose is more stressful than trying to figure it out in real time with my own hand. I am so easily taken out of the zone that I don't like using reference, but yeah it's even worse when you try to guess everything.  References for the win.

The WIPs will definitely be all done at a point at this rate. Looking forward to that milestone. Awesome stuff all round suups

break Room / Raider Gamer Squad
« on: July 26, 2019, 04:46:38 AM »
Okay Raiders. Who here has Apex Legends? Rainbow 6?

I want to make a MangaRaider gaming squad where we record singular battles in the field and upload to MR Youtube.

As far as I'm concerned, one successful match recording  would be fun.

Would anyone be interested?  (Regardless, I would like to jam any one of these games with a Raider. I'm shocked I haven't done that yet. )

Tips and Tutorials / Re: Suuper's Tip Diary

Make your tip book already suuper. Don't lie to me that you don't have one. I need these super simple tips in my life. Would you believe I'd never thought of doing that before? Haha. I thought I could only do it on photoshop.

Slanting bodies is still my nemisis. And of course never forget Proportion-sama

Hey Krislalev! Cool name there. What does it mean?

And the road to a mangaka is a tricky one there is no doubt about that, but it's definitely something you can aim for.

I would suggest looking into having something serialized on Taptastic or when you have enough content to do so. There is no better practice for serialization than having a short comic script that you update every week online. If you can keep at something like that for 6 months then regardless of numbers you can be sure that you have built up a lot of muscle for making consistent work.

Consistency is the key to being a good mangaka in my opinion. Even the most legendary artists can chase away fans and interest if they do not regularly post content for readers.

My two cents haha. Welcome to the forum! See you around and would love to hear your thoughts on the members stories and projects too.

Taking breaks is vital.

Morrigan is t h i i c.

Love the shading so much. Do you have any progress shots of your works, Rusinstein? I'd love to steal some tips if I could.

Keep at it! Soo good.
