Trying to start designing a front cover page for an 8-page manga I completed recently… 🤔
 
Cannot find the cable for my graphics tablet that connects it to the laptop anywhere currently and I scanned in some pencil art to colour some of it in digitally so I’m having to use the laptop tracker pad to colour for now. It’s really such a pain trying to paint digitally by clicking and dragging > < Not fun. I guess I just have to make do with that for now as I don’t have any other means. * sigh * 😣😣😣
 
I also can’t stop listening to this for the past few days that I stumbled across on youtube… it’s so beautiful 😊😊 🌟

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. ❤

Tendonitis

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.
