- A.N. -
I worked for this manga 3 or 4 months. I did all by myself after being encouraged by my college friends and close friends...
As a future manga-ka, I'll tell this to everyone. It's not as simple as it looks. You have to concentrate for both plot and what you draw and how you draw! And because this is historical, inspired after real life, I had to learn a lot of history! But it was worth of doing it!
I hope I will come, however, if you are referring if I'm gonna have a stand there to sale my works, then I'm sorry to disappoint you. This manga will probably appear for sale at the MangaShop stand at Nijikon.
Look, I'm thinking too to make some comics, but I have no idea where to start. I mean, I have my ideas, I know it needs a storyboard, but then I don't know which paper do I use to print it, and how make the cover. But it seems you showed to an editor about your work, I don't know. Also I'm horrible to use Paypal and stuff.
So, shortening the things, how did you do that? (if you don't want write here, please send me a note 83)
thanks! I'm still a beginner, but I had an itch to print this!
Okay, where to start?
The first idea was like this: I have this original characters, named Ernst von Mortengerg, I use him for a story I write down, but I wanted to somehow show some details of his life in the manga format.
I used simple A4 pages (not special manga pages as it recommended), drew the story board, and after I was sure about this I went into drawing the full pages of A4 pages, scanned them, edited them. The whole process took 4 months, from idea to final.
Also during the realization of this manga I had to read about history events and not just go doing it without some reference.
But it's not easy, you have to remember each place for each panel you draw, as well the characters. It's hard but not impossible. The manga was printed (that was again a tiresome process).
As a future manga-ka, I'll tell this to everyone. It's not as simple as it looks. You have to concentrate for both plot and what you draw and how you draw!
Unfortunately too many people understimate this. Even my brother and my parents. I tell them that making a comics, if you want to write a good story is not something to do in few days, but my brother always say things like 'what's matter? Everybody sucks at first experience. and you can be famous anyway! Even Stephanie Meyer sucks but she's popular!' I fell pretty disappointed because it seems that my brother wants only to see my name over a comic book cover, but i'm interested in quality.
I understand how you feel. It's true when people look at your comic artworks and they love it, it cheers me up. However there are some people look at my artworks, but just flipping papers and not take it seriously I sometimes doubt myself, 'Can I really do it?'
And just as you said, I concentrate for both plot and characters with background/setting. I can't believe myself that in order to create unique (my own style) would take this long. Right now it has been 3 years that I try not to slack off on my drawing skills.
Even I try to start work on it, because of other works what I have to finish(like study) and some excuses, I keep delay on it.
To me, it took 5 years. And I'm starting to develop my style just now XD Do it when you're ready. Listen to your instinct. When you read a comic, try to understand how panels work, and why eye follows a certain path. To improve faster work on things that take your interest first. You have to fell excited when you workl on your stories and your character. I never listened my relatives and my friends that wanted me to draw my comic as soon as possible.
sad, really... most people ignore because they see it as being childish... but it's not at all that. It's a serious thing. I am sure every artist put so much love in their works, otherwise, a shit will come out!
