Yes. If someone isn't worth your time, they're not worth your time.

Thanks everyone QwQ Art wise, I think I'd be fine as well. It's just the planning and story I have no idea about. Most of my story ideas are at most half-complete. I'll have the general idea, but I feel like I'd be winging the dialogue and smaller details?? Do mangakas/webtoon artists have their whole story planned out before drawing? :confused: What if they want to change details partway?

While we're on the topic, I know a few artists whose style and skill improved due to their comic. Some actually revisit their first pages and update them. It's okay to be worried about not having the perfect style right at the beginning, and I'm telling that to myself as well, but don't let that stop you from creating something :dance:

Anyway, update --

Character casual outfit references. There are quite a few characters I struggle to draw and these are a couple of them.

Red hair - how to colour coordinate


Young kiddo - tried to keep it simple but not bland

Ohhh 8-9 hours would probably be my limit as well, depending how picky I'm ding with the piece. Inking definitely helps to speed up the process. Once it's done, it's done. My pencil drawings I end up erasing things several times ^^;

I didn't really want to run over the month for my improvement project so I'll see how far I get but I'll probably only make it past the first 4 I think. Even in the beginning I knew I was being ambitious XD

Fair enough. What projects are you going to do after this one?

Days 22-23

For me personally, it's hard for me to cut ties from someone. Family, it's hard to do that. That's important to me. Like, I have some troublesome brothers, but I still love them as their older brother despite scolding them for making poor decisions.

Friends though, like the comment above, some come and go. But the closest friends are the special ones. Those guys are the ones you can be comfortable around, banter at each other like crazy, or even be your emotional support. They're like an additional family member to you because of the bonds and connection forged over the time, and that's difficult to cut ties with. But, it certainly does hurt if the bond gets thrown away out of the window.

I remember having a toxic friend who I thought I had a close bond with, but it was obvious I just had to cut all ties with him because he wasn't the person I knew back in grade school. The dude cared only himself, self-proclaimed messiah, and manipulative. The guy refused to get help and thought he was his own medicine. There's more to the story, but it's all in the past. I was just done with dealing with him.

In conclusion: Family = no. Friends = maybe.

break Room / Re: Which Manga do you want an anime made for it?

Records of Ragnarok, only because I want to see the crazy fights adapted into an anime. Though, I highly doubt it would do justice for the manga.

My reason for writing may sound childish or even unrealistic, but I just want to share my writing to people. Plus, I love writing. That's about it.

I've done some work on Level 4 of Izabel called "the prisoner" where you're going to get introduced to a new character who I've drawn before. This video is something I showed for a class.

In even bigger news I'm days away from releasing the first public demo of Blade Regalia.

And @Suuper, I spent a lot of time looking into the error you got for Izabel. One thing I found was setting that indicated that the engine was designed to render using a DirectX 12 which is exclusive to windows 10, and your system was windows 7 meaning it needs to use DirectX 11 or lower for starters, so I've enabled multiple hardware rendering options. But of course it's a strange error and there aren't many definitive answers for it (you know it's bad when the top answer is *update your drivers*). I don't think I've ever had a computer issue where updating the drivers actually solved it, typically things are always up to date by force anyway.

The second issue I looked into was performance. I got reports of very low frames so the game will now launch on minimum or at least close to minimum graphics. So people with $1,000 PCs will have to upgrade the settings when the game launches, first world problems. Immediately, you'll be able to change the settings on the main menu and also at any time during gameplay. Still no option to change the controls yet and the other languages will (ideally) be available in the next version which I'll probably release a few weeks after this one. I'm actually waiting for my translator to be able to play before we finish the translations.

Welcome to MangaRaiders :)

You have to contribute a certain number of posts in sections outside of the Break Room to be able to post links or email addresses. I would not post anything too personal however.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy your time here and I look forward to reading some of the stuff you decide to share.
