Work in Progress – Time to start painting pages for my manga


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. ❤ 😀

Work in Progress – Time to start painting pages for my manga

Music – Some more info on this painting so far. :)


Here is my most recent painting that I’ve been working on at uni. The colours are the ‘music’. The idea behind this piece is getting lost in the world of music. Listening to music is something I spend a lot of my time doing, although often a lot of time I am not even working on art while doing this, a lot of the time I am just sitting and listening to the music. I often feel like my mind is stuck and paralysed, and I am just listening to the same music over and over. My mind tries to get itself lost in the music, and escape to the power of the music world. I wanted to create some art to express this. I feel it is very important to try to express this as it seems vital to who I am. It is like a way of fighting against reality, fighting against emotional and/or mental pain. Music can help you going in life. Music is my weapon against reality. I use it to fight back.

This is done on quite a large canvas, almost the size of me heightwise, twice as wide as me widthwise. Medium is oil paint.

I’ve been listening to the same setlist of some music that I’ve been listening to every day on repeat since the summer, the fact I listened to this setlist on repeat is something that help inspired this work. A huge thank you to all the musicians who created these works. A lot of these I just found by random on the internet but they just happened to be the ones I kept clicking repeat endlessly on these past few months.
The main songs I listened to while creating this piece :
“Blvck Ceiling – Girl money”
“CVL† SH‡† – ßƟD¥ ßΔGƵ”
“Blvck Ceiling – Wvfflife”
