So I’ve recently decided to try drawing an 8 page manga script.
I wrote out the script one evening, the next evening I’d planned out in a sketchbook where all the pictures and text would go, as well as the layout of the boxes. I’m really enjoying it so far. I enjoyed writing the script, I enjoyed planning out the storyboard and playing around with different possible layouts for all the boxes on each page and how to place everything compositionally. I feel so passionate about the short bit of story I’ve come up with to draw, I feel like the idea and message is important so I really want to get it down. 😀
Now I am trying to practice drawing out certain things, starting off with my main character. I created this character when I was 16, told myself I’d one day make a graphic novel with this character, and 7 years later I still haven’t done anything with him. Now has come a time where I really want to use his character however. I really want to draw my own manga. Im enjoying it so far, hopefully it turns out well. I feel like I’m really well suited to this kind of work/project. It didnt take me long at all to write the script and plan the storyboard. Although I expect it will take longer, and with more practice, to draw what happens in the script so it looks good. 🙂 Hopefully it’ll turn out as well as I want it too. ❤
“The Diary” and “Gratitude to the Eternal Guard” are now showing at an exhibition the Old Truman Brewery in London! Private view 6th July 2017 and then open from 7th – 10th July! Please come! 😀
So for about a month now had tendonitis in both arms and wrists, it’s been difficult to do things, and I defintely haven’t been able to draw and paint at all since it started a month ago. Really miss doing art. It’s been pretty bad, Nick keeps lifting the kettle for me whenever I want a cup of tea because it hurts me to lift it. Hopefully it can get better soon and then I can get back to my art. 😊❤🌟💫 I can’t wait until I can draw and paint again. I want to create pretty things for people to enjoy.
