Re: The Manga Thread

Thanks I will eventually, but I'm gonna be busy over the next few days, so I don't know when I'll get to it. :\

Re: The Manga Thread

Hi Axl, Stillbill, Coolray, BayouDragon & the rest,
It's so refreshing to be in a forum talking Manga & not have to worry about the nasty attitudes i've witnessed in other manga forums.
I don't know maybe its the age group that it targets but it gets very mean, political & full on...... so much so that i refused for a long period of time to show my stuff & even stopped drawing it....until i remembered that i am 28 yrs old & should probably not let group bullying get to me...lol

Just wanted to stay that it is great to see the awesome work done by all....Axl i think you may remember me from the Fantasy/ Sci-Fi forum....my mate Rasberry posted some of my stuff....i'm finally here & will get into some fresh work to post....thanks for starting this thread...very refreshing to see

Hush

Re: The Manga Thread

Hush, Im glad you finally decided to come on over and join us!!

You probably have noticed that manga art has not really taken off on these boards, and you probably won't see as much of it as you wouold on other galleries like devient art. But expecially over here in Illustration forum and over in Fantasy/Sci-fi art, we'd love to see your work, and we're really supportive of all the different kinds of styles and genres out there, so I hope you'll feel comfortable sharing your work with us!

We;re looking forward to seeing some of your latest works

Re: The Manga Thread

I guess I should be posting something here as I was much into drawing my own manga for little over a year. I really don't like to consider myself a manga artist anymore, but I was intensely into it for a some time...

This is Jing-Lan, a little chinese girl who was minor character my first manga. She is four years old, and, like me, she just loves garden snails.

As you can see, it appears in grayscale; however the original was made with real deleter screentone, so in print it looked exactly like what you see in any manga book (made of dot patterns). It has a much cleaner, sharper, neater feel when printed. Hand-drawn and inked.

Re: The Manga Thread

Eee snail!

You seam to be very flexible with the different styles you're able to draw. It seams like a very good thing for any illustrator to have- that diversity to be able to reach the needs of many different clients.

Re: The Manga Thread

Thanks, Axl!!!! You actually see a difference between my styles! People often tell me that my regular style looks like anime/manga, and that annoys me to no end. When I was younger I hated anime for this reason. People would be like, "ooh, that's nice, which show is that character from?" when they were all my own creations. Maybe that's because I was a little girl then. But it sure was annoying, so when someone notes that there IS a difference, I'm very, very flattered! Thanks!

Re: The Manga Thread

It's been a while since I've been on WC. I'm glad to see that someone started up an anime/manga thread. Anime style is what I do and so I'll post a bit of what I've done.

Re: The Manga Thread

Hiya, Folks! My name is Clarence, and this is my first posting here at Wet Canvas. I dabble a lot with manga style of art. This was drawn for a friend of mine. It was done with watercolor and colored pencil. It's not very spit and polished, but I'm slowly getting there.

Hey cool to see you've found us then I like these characters , they look like great sketches for something more! Did you also do the character in your avatar? Would love to see some inked and in full colour I think these sketches could really shine!

I hope we'll get to see more of your work

Clarence, welcome to WC! Im glad you came over to post in this thread, because it is great to see your work. I really love the composition of this piece, and I think the colour work is really nice. I love that it seams that you've taken elements of the anime style, but still seam to be keeping it your own - fantastic!
