Hadn't wrote a journal in a while. Summer has been fun, and now I'm getting ready to start some new projects. I also figured I post some past works from the last couple of months that I really liked and that some folks might have missed. Hope all is well out there!

i really dig the grey tone work you do, and the manga feel to it with the zipatone effect. been trying to get into that look as well for my IP, since my coloring isnt really that effective. but great work, keep it up

Thank you much, man! I'm glad you dig my work. You have great work in your gallery as well. :handshake: 

I do all of the line art by hand and then scan it into manga studio to do the half-tones.

Thanks for the compliment and watch. Yea I do the same thing, its all just sketches and some ink, i dont have a scanner, so i actually end up taking photos of my work and then editing them with Gimp. I know that sounds so crude, haha. I plan on changing alot in the process of my work since it has proven counter productive to me making any ground on my project. I was thinking of give manga studio a try as well. Any thoughts on it as compared to gimp?

Yeah if you're traditionally drawing than I  would for sure invest in some kind of scanner, as that would for sure streamline your process. I like manga studio. I always use Manga Studio 3 as it's on my main PC, although I have Manga Studio 4 on my laptop. The only real difference is that Manga Studio 4 has the ability to color things. I've never used gimp so I can't give you any thoughts on how they compare. I know Manga Studio can be a headache for people to first learn, especially if they are used to PS and illustrator.

Hello Don,

Listen I really have not felt like drawing or doing 3D modeling/animation lately.

I don't know? I just really want to put my focus on writing Manga and Japanese Role-Playing Game stories.

Anyways I start my Creative Writing class at my college next week on Tuesday so until then I will be pretty busy.

Should I keep my dA account in case I find another use for it?

I am thinking about hiring some Manga artists to do the production work for my Manga stories.

My main focus is just to be a writer.

So what do you think?
