I have an artist before that I know in real life. my bestfriend and I should be doing these stories but sadly we can't do it now since maybe because life give us different path to pave on. I really tried my hardest to draw but unfortunately this is the drawing I can produce right now and tbh honest I'm not satisfied with it. making a manga by yourself is lonely and sometimes it gives me feeling that what I'm doing is basicly insignificant or why the am I doing this in the first place feeling. right now I can give up and turn my back anytime and this stories and memories that I have with them will be unwriten and sadly I feel like I might become a person that is not me and I felt that before and that gave me some story to write and create so. I might be clingy to other artist because of what i've experienced so please forgive me for that but will try my best and thanks for the advice.
awesome. well.. I'm just wondering if stories like this would fairly give you interest since from your name I would assume that you like mature stories without any fan service or teenage sexual undertones because of your username. my stories kinda targets 16-20+ readers so my works may feel disconnecting to you.
I'm willing to be a support artist! I'm very interested in the book keeper manga. I could also write the story if there are no slots available
Name: Owlie (not going to reveal my real name as of now
Fluent languages: Filipino, English, Chinese (Mandarin, Fujian dialect [guangzhou], a little bit of Cantonese)
Background: I am born and raised in the Philippines. I got into art just recently (5 months or so). Before that, I was just casually drawing. I'm more of self taught, but I took a year of coloring lessons.
Availability: I'm on DeviantArt everyday. I usually draw for an hour, but I can do it for 6 hours maximum depending on the situation.
tools: intuos art (just got it yesterday) and painttool sai
-I could help you color your works and ink them digitally. I could also fix the anatomy of the characters, but I have little experience in page layouts.
hi owlie! im happy that you've taken interest on one of my projects book keepers. would be UTMOST HAPPY TO HAVE ABOARD but right now we are still waiting for other interested people for their reply. I would like to ask some of this questions.
1.would you still be interested working with me or us(maybe XD) even if you're not working on the book keepers manga?
2.we you be interested drawing the scene for the book keepers just in case i'm busy working with another project just in case your not interested on any other project that I will be starting?
3. we will have a very rocky and hard road to walk own during this project. do you have what it takes to hang with me till the end of the project?
4.if in case that we cannot work on the book keeper manga first. we can definitely work on next on book keepers after we finised the 1st project asap. are you okay with that?
would like to suggest FB or other sites that can let us properly transfer file easily. does deviant allows transfering of pdf file and none jpeg like program? like for example manga studio files? and if we will use FB I would like to suggest to create a proxy FB account if you don't like having the invasion of your rl account on FB I usually do that to seperate my family and my friends because it's kinda award when my parents are posting on my friends post. lol
Thanks! but please take note that I'm looking for an assistant writer to make some of the scene of this manga project better. having a point of view of another writer might benefit me on enhancing the story and may see at first look what is weak on the plot and other things that might make this project a big success.
I know, i probably should've worded my response better, sorry about that, but yeah im very interested in helping in any way i can. Im a writer myself though i dwell more in the fantasy and adventure genres, i feel like i can do good with slice of life
I see. thanks and no worries : ) I have been working on pandora's box story for quite some time now and will gladly give you some early manuscript of it if you like adventure and fantasy genre but sadly we still waiting for other reply when we will be starting this project or what story we will be seriously making.
since you are online let me introduce myself I'm Yumi and I'm a want to be a mangaka for a long time but still don't know where to start. >.< Yumi isn't my real name but it's very near on that pen name. I'm a very private person so please forgive me in advance If don't give information irl about me. other than that I love anime and manga and I love to draw too but mostly I have a cable tv in my head when sleeping so I have many stories that i come up with when waking up in the night or morning ^^.
Haha im xela, im also a pretty private person but i tend to open up quickly, i also want to become a mangaka and start my story that ive been working on for a couple of years (though i should probably focus on school more),currently im working on my drawing skills and further expanding my knowledge of other genres in writing
I see. we do have many things in common including working on a manga story for years. my friends and I have been making doodle and whatnot for years and from time to time created some manga that is fairly good. my friend here in deviant art is megane a cosplayer,artist and a writer too heres his dev id megani12.deviantart.com/ he made a manga called Sadistic Students and it's pretty cool with actions and stuffs ^^. but right now I think he's too busy with rl right now and sadly we aren't communicating anymore.
we were 4 people in making this manga we made this manga on my friends home noel,megane,rina and me. so some of the manga on the list are from them and I'm the sole survivor on putting our work in public eyes lol.
I've been working with another person on welcome back onii-chan she's really a very very very private person than me and doesn't want to know anyone that she likes anime lol.
she's the inspiration of the story of welcome back onii-chan. but still we have an agreement to have the other spin off of wlecome back onii-chan when it's on the run. since welcome back onii-chan focuses on johnny the spin off will be the story of johnny's sister point of view. and that agreement is still in effect. : )
Somewhat interested in your projects but don't really have much of a preference of what to do so I guess that'll probably need some discussion.
To make this easier for you, here's some information about me: - I was born and raised for 13 years in the Philippines. Moved to a different country, but still have a grasp of life in the Philippines(plus I'm on vacation here until after next week). - Fluent in Filipino and English. Japanese level is just a bit above conversational. - Understands quite a bit of Japanese Culture and of course Filipino Culture. - Drawing digitally w/ Manga Studio 5 Pro(can send files in .clip format if needed) - Very active on Deviantart(especially the forums). - 3 hours of free time daily. - 2 years experience toning (Samples), 9 years drawing experience. - Minor experience with animations(probably unnecessary for any of the projects, but just putting it out there if interested) - 3 years art course experience (can send a link to sample pages from my portfolio if needed; Unfortunately I had to color them instead of tone since the marker didn't like the lack of colors) - Looking to get some practice before starting my own project.
Alternatively I could just give tips on toning and stuff.
The sta.sh link you put at the end doesn't seem to work.
oh! sorry about that! I've updated my gallery and for some reason the manga that I did was transferred in the gallery section. so if you are interested on seeing my work on Maria diary (Maria Nikki) here the link for page 1 maria-dairy
other than that I'm really dumbfounded or i mean overwhelmed in the info you gave me about you.
you have a good standing resume for arts and it seems that I might not be that worthy to have someone with your skills and experience.
but tbh honest I don't have any art degree and i just learned to draw by myself I don't know how toning works too and I have 0 exp on coloring so I really really hope that you can join this project of mine.
I would like to talk to you more about more info because tbh honest this is my first time to open my deviant art again and I don't really know how things goes when planning a project like this online and if you are Filipino that would be a big plus since I can give you the manuscript of that we will be working (if we can start this project and I hope we do) in raw Filipino language in some parts that I can't get the right English term or the exact equivalent word in English to make the dialog on the manga crisp or on point.
again I WOULD GLADLY HAVE YOU IN THIS PROJECT if you have the time and patients with me. and by the way, maligayang pasko at advance na bagong taon sayo friend : ) and btw heres some unfinished chapters of maria diary (maria nikki) if you are interested it might be very blurry since it isn't toned out and whatnot sta.sh/2vquhu0jtlg?edit=1
to be honest I would like you to help me tone and ink out digitally some of the pages that I will make we can split off the work in half will tone and ink some of the pages myself.
and would like to talk to you urgently so we can start the project right away. hope we can have a nice chat so we can sort things out and properly lay some things about the projects like title names on the front cover of the project we will be working on and things you need to make things work out so we can harmoniously work together and hope to work with you until the project is fully finished : ) and when i mean fully finished like the story itself is finished and already put on smackjeeves and other webcomic hosting sites : )
Thanks for the greeting. I did say that I was interested in the project so don't worry about it. Don't mind the experience I have either as technically I have no 'work experience' related to art either. The reason I'm helping is because I also want to get some practice done before I start my own manga later on.
I looked through all the pages you've put in your gallery and got the gist of what you were going for in most of them. For the meantime, I could probably do the inking and/or toning for a page or two to see what kind of toning you're looking for. It's the only thing I can really do at the moment since I don't really know what the characters look like from all the angles; I'd need a reference sheet/more examples to figure that out.
As for communication, I'm up for a few methods: - Discord - Skype - DeviantArt Chat Channel - DeviantArt Notes - G-mail
If you have any other suggestions for communication, feel free to reply with them.
Oh, and I said that I was going to ink/tone a page or two, but first I'd need a manuscript of what that page should be about like "Is the white space in the background intended to be wood/stone/etc?" If you need some more info on what I'm talking about, I can note you a manuscript regarding a page I've done in the past.
thanks! deviant chat will do. and other than that. I'm happy to have you doing the toning and inking but if you want to start helping on drawing some panels I'll gladly give you the storyboard and panel layout sketch when we get to have a steady going with this project I assure you that this will be a long long relationship if you have the patients and tenacity on enduring this project with me. I would like to ask what project would you like to work on too.
and would like to see some samples of the manuscript you have about inking and toning
(tbh honest I just ink and tone any type of tone to use in the maria dairy manga since I don't have an idea what the tone are for. lol i just use the tone that looks kinda good XD)
to make sure that we avoid committing mistakes or communication errors when we are working on this project : ) I would like to ask too when we can start?
Feel free to note me any links to stuff I can do. If there aren't any notes on what to do, I'll probably end up guessing on what some things are, so I'll probably end up asking you a lot of questions if you don't. I've already noted you a few things too.
thanks! hope we can work on what story? it seems like owlie littleowldragon.deviantart.com… likes to work on book keepers how about you? GPAD? i've already sended you an abridged story of fate of chap 1 and 2 I assure you that the story will be greater when we make it in a manga in any story that we will start with : )
thanks! will try to make sure to talk to other people that will be joining this project first and have some deep conversation what will be the project that we will be working on. will give an update after some discussion with other interested people in this project. (including you)
thanks! and I'm deeply grateful for getting interested on this project! I need first to talk to all of the people who is interested (including you) for more info on how we will start the project or what project we will be starting. ; )
