slowly working on manga, sorting 1 of the ‘spirit’ pages first but this is like halfway into my dialogue ive written so it might not make sense yet until ive painted all the other pages. Gonna take ages considering how long this one page is taking, and theres gonna be a bunch. 🙂
Wanna take my time with it though and make it as beautiful as I can… ❤ Gonna be so many pages.
Got half of this page painted and putting some text in. Now to paint my character Timmy in the corner. I have a lot of pages I need to paint!!!
Been storyboarding some possible compositions in my physical sketchbook for where the various boxes, layouts, pictures, text could go etc. just gotta finish planning out the skeleton of it all, then can carry on painting out the pages like I’m doing with this one. 🙂 ❤
I’m really excited and passionate about this project I’m starting, what I’ve written about is important to me, I sure hope I can eventually do a good job of bringning it to life. ❤ 😀

You can get the first 8 page manga I created “The Glow of her Heart” on Amazon Kindle. Enjoy. xx ❤
Wrote some dialogue, now in the process of starting some illustrations to go with the writing, the pictures will make more sense in context when theyre all together with the words as well. 🙂
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. ❤
