Well, /a/, it's Christmas!
I've been unemployed for a while now, but instead of watching anime all day I decided I would try to be at least a little bit productive with all this free time.
So, I decided I would draw a manga. I've made 20 pages so far and I'm gonna dump them here, so, enjoy my crappy drawings!
I have absolutely no artistic experience to speak of, and I just sort of planned to learn as I go.
So, lets get started!
This is my original manga, Know Me Human.
Here's the first page. EDGY, right?
You can also just go to my website to read it, if you want: http://knowmehuman.com/Read.html
A little background.
The setting was supposed to be futuristic, but run-down. That didn't really come across so far though.
/co/ isn't my community, I want to share with you fags.
This is the anime and MANGA board. Lighten up, it's Christmas and I felt like sharing my scribblings. I spent a long time on them.
The font that I used here was terrible, but I hadn't really looked for anything better at this point. At least everything looks sort of decent when I don't actually have to draw any characters!
My first attempt at actually drawing a manga character. It gets better, I swear!
Mysterious monster things get wrecked.
turns out, drawing the same character multiple times and actually getting them to look the same is hard!
This has got to be my worst page, she looks so derpy here!!
Stop trying anon, I'm spreading my Christmas cheer with my drawings, and thats that.
Art is a little bit better on this page, I think. Still lacking any sort of real detail, though.
A new character!
Now you're starting to understand.
Crazy! I started looking at a lot of different manga to learn to draw some more expressive faces.
Another character is revealed! Along with the big mutant monster.
Here I tried to draw some different shots of the same character.
Old guy arrives! Characters look pretty bad here. Drawing them really small is hard, and I was still not even comfortable drawing them at normal size, yet.
A view of the city as they drive away. I skipped ahead a lot here without drawing transitional scenes, but I just wanted to hurry to the next setting.
Inside the car, there's some mistakes on this page that I didn't really notice until it was too late to fix them, so I'll just hope no one else notices!
Inside Pariah headquarters. Again, I'm skipping over a lot of stuff that I probably should have drawn in, but I wanted to hurry into some actual explaination of what's going on.
The characters arrive.
As you can see, I started using mostly screentones here, instead of simply colouring stuff.
This is my favourite page I made, I think it actually looks pretty good.
Almost at the end now.
Here's the most recent page that I've finished.
Showing off the two different varieties of Esper and giving a more lengthy explaination.
ANYWAY, that's all I've made so far. Here's to another shitty year spent jerking off over asian cartoon characters with a bunch of losers on the internet. Merry Christmas, /a/!
Seems like those boards are more appropriate for actual aspiring artists who want to show off their drawings.
I'm just some anon with a lot of free time who decided to pick up a pen. I don't use those boards, I use /a/, and I'm not really here just to show off (I would have waited until the first chapter was finished at least).
It's Christmas day. I'm here with you fags, on /a/. It just made me want to share with my community what I'd been wasting my time on lately.
That said, I will check those boards out now, they'll probably help me improve my drawing a lot, so thanks for linking them, I guess.
