almost exactly 4 months since my last post, wow time flies ehehe

Had a mild depressive episode that maybe I couldn't draw anymore, because I've only been working at such low art quality for so long with my longer-than-expected manga project.

So drew this in like 10 minutes as a sort of warmup of sorts. Other than this I've done decidedly little art aside from my manga project, which has probably contributed to me feeling a bit low. Fortunately my project is soon over and I'll be back to the grind for the foreseeable future :P

fortunately I can indeed survive the gap. as it happens my pay is the same amount monthly regardless of the actual time spent at work, it's my yearly hours wage / 12

and I live with my parents...so expenses are somewhat minimal all year round, thankfully. Otherwise I doubt I'd be able to do as much art as I do.

ouch, that's pretty late work. I'm at a school so that'll never happen for me.

thankfully I'm on holiday now so I'm hoping to make the most of the 7 or so weeks of freedom.

well I kinda just about managed to get another chapter out , although I'm epicly far behind my schedule now.

Et Cetera

Eclipse

Whispering Magic

Omega World


Well this project kinda hit a brick wall on the last week of the main work. I’ll explain more in detail about the successes and problems I’ve faced but the following is sort of a raw explanation.

In the week I didn’t do any work, I basically forgot everything. How to draw, all my methods and stuff. Not sure why but I blame work for just messing with me. I managed to regain momentum but took far too long really, about 2 whole weeks from dropping off the running at full speed again. That’s not really a big amount of time but for a weekly artist that’s a massive drop in productivity. Gave me a good glimpse into failure and scheduling conflicts etc. again nothing a decent buffer can’t fix, but all the same I would have liked to have that regular output. Can’t help work messing with my days though, so that’s kinda “not my fault (TM)”. I would have liked to be able to adjust my schedule at a moment notice to keep my productivity high but I think I just got depressed at my plans being changed from an external source, and so in the remaining time I did have, I did nothing. So there’s plenty of room for improvement. It also made me realise that my skill might be more in short term memory rather than long term, and so it’s still easy to forget stuff I’ve learnt when it’s new, probably.
For some reason my quality control was really out of whack for this chapter, perhaps because of the gap of not doing anything I sort of forgot the quality I was aiming at, I was much more self conscious of the low quality I was working at, especially the script for some reason. That might also just be because I’ve had time for my skill to grow over the course of the project.

I found it hard to write anything for this chapter, could have been many reasons. I blame my hay fever as well since I have been sluggish and tired this week in addition to work problems. So that’s been super annoying. I thought it might have been that I was just getting burnout again but it’s more that I just didn’t want to do anything, at all. My eyes are super red and so I think I just wanted to keep them closed and so I ended up sleeping more :P

I finally figured what happened and the probable cause of the slump and the sort of fizzle out of the project. Basically when I was laid up in bed with a bad back I couldn’t do anything, but I thought about the project a lot, like what I would do next and so on, and basically mentally, I started to finish the project off. All the processing that was holding the project in memory started to switch to analysis and processing all the skills I had learnt, and so when I returned to the project for the final chapter - I had started to move on and now the project isn’t the best thing to work on, like I’m already ready to get the next project in gear to learn the next skill. So I had to rewind quite heavily to get back in the correct mindset for this project, which lost me an extra 10 days or so. But it was very difficult to get the quality up and so the final chapters was extra low quality overall, for each story. Basically this project has already taught me what’s a good workflow for drawing/learning manga, and it ISNT the current way I’m working. So I found it hard to get back into finishing off the project “the wrong way”. So sort of I’ve outgrown the project because I had time to process my skills due to being stuck doing nothing in bed for several days. My art quality I think has got much higher since doing this project and so I was working at the wrong level by the end. So many things wrong with this project. I always said I’d learn a lot from it, success or failure, and it’s really been quite a bit of both.

Well this concludes the primary output of my project, I won’t be writing any more scripts or drawing any more pages for the main story now. I will be doing some bonus sketches and pages (the sort of content you see in manga novels, just for fun and project rounded-outness), so stay tuned for the next 2 weeks which I’ll be releasing them. So it’s not quite over yet, but the main pressure is off, and I’ve got so many ideas for improvements and my methods and regimes, which I’ll muse about in GREAT length soon.

This puts my final manga page count at 841 when I finally do the last chapter title pages as well.
This doesn't include all the bonus pages I'm hopefully adding to make them into a book, but all the same a pretty epic number.

General thoughts:

Overall the quality of writing has been epicly awful. I know I can’t even see some of the awfulness because of my lack of experience, but even I can see that it’s just generically bad on almost every level. I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me :P

I think that it’s not so much my ability of writing that’s limiting my range of concepts and ideas, but more the fact that I like seeing certain things and so I’ve included the same sort of things in my stories, simply because I tend to like those things. So the lack of variety is more because I’m catering to my own preferences a bit too strongly, perhaps.

I’m getting a sense of writing scripts, or more I’m realising which aspects are the most important. Basically I can generally write a scene once I’ve decided the overall flow, like “the result of the scene”, sort of thing. What’s hard to do is things that I’m not sure why they are there, or things that are sort of ambiguous. So basically better planning of specific scenes at an earlier stage would probably be useful, rather than just a list of things that happen, group them into specific scenes, and it will probably highlight any gaps in the story easier. Perhaps, I don’t know :P

I'm still only at about 30% of my normal maximum so still trying to catch up, but getting there slowly with focus and productivity.

see you all later.

Chapter 12 - The Beginning

Chapter 12 - The Beginning































Thoughts:

Firstly, this story basically ends where it possibly should have started. I managed to take the entire volume to get my MC into becoming an adventurer. I’m not sure if that’s good or not, since I followed the story how it played out in my mind. I also was probably subconsciously avoiding throwing my MC in the deep end and making them all gung-ho “Sure I’ll be an adventurer!”, because it’s totally dangerous and you could die easily. I don’t know if that level of realistic thinking is a good thing, it’s fiction after all. But given that I don’t like it in other stories, it can’t be just me that thinks like that.

To be honest my MC was almost against becoming an adventurer so his reasoning was even weaker than everyone else’s I think. He sort of went along with everyone else and that led to him steeling his mind, rather than making the decision on his own. Again in my head it makes a bit more sense but even in my headcanon he didn’t have a good enough reason I think.

So them all becoming adventurers is probably unlikely given their personalities up to this point. I don’t know if they needed more justification or their personalities should have been different form the beginning. I like the idea that Will goes from being indecisive do-whatever to more proactive, but I don’t think I showed that growth very well, or at all for that matter.

Regardless of whether it fitted, there were a lot of small events to fit in this chapter, like preparing to leave, saying goodbyes etc, and getting the order right for the events was a real pain ahaha

I basically ran out of content ideas for this chapter since it had to end somewhere sensible, but Will deciding to become an adventurer took up not much space, and I had no idea what to show for preparing or goodbying, so it took up less space than in my head. Overall the second half felt like a post-credits sequence after the final episode has ended, closing up loose ends. I definitely didn’t aim for that feel.

enjoy.

Chapter 12 - A Pure Wish

Chapter 12 - A Pure Wish

































Thoughts:
Very confused about the personality of Rai to be honest. Basically he’s a good guy but struggles with communication with others. But that’s difficult to write and show. I went a similar route to what I saw done with the librarian girl in The World only God Knows, that they just have a constant stream of thoughts and can’t pick the right thing to say, so people assume they’re not talkative or friendly whereas the opposite is true. Not sure how he grows to be a friend with serenity either lol. I also gave him a bit of a unique element affinity so that everyone’s scared of him as well, that’s more because it made it easier to estrange him from people, rather than any long term plan for his ability. I used serenity as a character base for his internal thoughts since I really didn’t have a clue. At least I’m learning what I can’t do :P Also why did it take him this long to reach out to someone? Who knows. Perhaps it was because serenity approached him first he thought he had a chance. But large dialogue fills up speech bubbles quite a lot, so it was difficult to fit it in compared to normal speech. Also I sort of shifted the view of him from just being anti-social to being outright scary because of his magic. So it’s unlikely warren and ruby would have suggested to ask him anything since they would have been nervous around him too. I actually expected more of this type of plot hole in my stories tbh as I changed up things, but perhaps I just can’t see them for the trees.

Kinda just made up the entire chapter. I mean when do I not but yeah. Basically whatevered my way to the end. The letter contents were difficult because I was imagining Rai struggling over what to write but I skipped that because otherwise the entire chapter would be Rai panicking and that was making me panicky lol. I just went with the overall thought content without focusing on the actual wording, so it’s quite dry and, simple, I guess. Also timeline-wise I messed up a couple of times, making a bit of a plot hole. Basically lack of proper planning in the beginning methinks.

I also wasn’t sure about the flashbacks, because it starts with a flashback of a younger Rai, but then jumps forward to 2 weeks previous, so it’s still a flashback, sort of, still not current time. Hopefully the similar circumstances made it clear that it was showing the same scenes from before, but from Rai’s point of view. I didn’t want it to take up too many pages so I kinda crammed it into 3 pages but it probably should have been like 4 or 5 to be nicely paced, probably. The time jumps probably aren't too clear to be honest, but at least I'm aware of that for next time.

Also sort of a decent cliff-hanger for the volume end as well. Again the magic system is a mess so I can’t really explain why most of the stuff happens, I just basically wanted cool interesting stuff and it was too hard to justify in a concrete way.

Probably there was enough content in this to make 2 well-paced chapters but I really wanted to have something interesting happening so I crammed it in anyway ahaha. Probably not the best but at least I did what I wanted.

enjoy.
