Here is a design I drew for Manga Jiman’s Mascot competition. It didn’t even make it into the shortlist at then end so I guess they didn’t like mine so much… I thought it was a cute design idea though.. 🙂 At least I tried. 🙂 When I looked up mascots in Japan they had some things in common. Firstly they often seemed quite simple designs, often cute, often animals. Manga Jiman is a UK competition to creat manga but because its the UK they ask people to draw it with English and readng left to right instead of right to left like japanese manga is. This mascot design is supposed to be like an advocate cheering on and celebrating the 2 cultures coming tigether, she encourages when british people are inspired by japanese manga and vice versa, encouraging the cultures to be inspired by each other and come together and celebrate the the artistic results achieved from being inspired by each others cultures and art. 🙂
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. ❤ 😀
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 😊😊🌟
