Tips on Making a Manga?


Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

Your characters look awesome! I want to make my own as well (I'm not going to post my terrible looking characters). From what I've read in my research... Making the outline of the story is key (like writing a book), then story boards, then actual fleshing out of the manga itself.  I'm doing mine by hand. (because I don't have any computer art skills) I don't plan on publishing mine so I didn't do any research on that aspect. There are some good YouTube channels that cover a lot on making a manga. Yuuike, My Mangaka LIFE, and Artfinitii, to name a few. I don't know if that was any help. Best of luck!

to be honest, you could just do one based on your real life stories (e.g. your experience while playing a game, exercising, or even dream ones assuming you still remember them after waking up >_<)

the real problem is art/pacing though >.> and if you can make it interesting

Yeah that must be difficult, like have a good "flow" on the pages. Looks very fun tho, what program do you draw in?

Clip studio paint?

at the very least, its no joke, especially since im not writing a script "ahead of time">_< (its all generally in my brain on how i want the story to flow)

and yea, i use CSP (clip studio paint) for my arts, been using it since it was called "manga studio", never really tried any other application (aside from photoshop, which was used more on cleaning manga's on my childhood days im still young though, dont get the wrong idea >_<

 

edit; which reminds me, if all else fails, you could do 4-koma as a start, assuming you plan on manga making, which honestly, is what i shoulda done >_>

      I wrote my own "Light Novel" after all these years! A Slice of Life filled with comedy, excitement, and fluff! 😃
      Hey everyone! I'm new here, but I wanted to let you all know about the story I've been working on for the past couple of months!
      I started reading manga/light novels and watching anime when I was still around 6 years old, believe it or not, I am born to be an otaku. 
      Reading the manga/light novel became a part of me until now, and I am overly excited every time they announced an anime adaptation for the manga/light novel. Because seeing the characters moving and interacting is just amazing for me.

      My novel, "I never thought I made a harem while making a manga." currently available for free in webnovel, is a slice of life and a romantic comedy story about a generic dense MC named Kenji Yoshikawa who only is a high school student lacking in ambitions and dreams, seeking to live a simple life. His unusual family background doesn't allow him to live his life in the shadows, in order to uncover the secrets behind his family. He started a mangaka club with his childhood best friend Yasuyuki Okamura and a mysterious girl Fumi Sugawara then sudden events unfolded.
      I hope that you guys can enjoy reading my humble little story! The first volume is out and the next volumes will be out soon. I'll do my best to keep writing more! 
      You are open to share your thoughts, fellow readers!
      ATTENTION: 
      There will be updates soon! but please continue supporting my story. 

      Cover art: Temporary, updating.
      Story: Needs fixations.
      Next update: Volume 2 will be released soon.

      Not many people I know talk about the manga/anime  Kiniro Mosaic or known as "Hello Kinmoza". 
      It's a cute slice of life  😆
      What it's about:    Shinobu went to England for a home-stay when she was in middle school and the place she'd be staying had a child around her age. When she arrived, she found out that girl her age didn't know Japanese and Shinobu didn't know English. So they're only conversations were "Konichiwa, Hello!". Even though there conversations were limited, they still became friends. Once Shinobu left to go back to Japan, Alice learned Japanese. Alice surprised Shinobu and went to Japan to see her. Shinobu is....
       
       That's all I'll say! If you like this crap thing I wrote and are interested in the manga/anime I'm pretty sure you can stream it on Crunchyroll and HiDive. The manga is a Four-Panel, just a heads up.

      Anyone know where I can find a trilogy of short animes from a couple years ago called Road to You?  Legally of course.  Sounds interesting (for a tire commercial  ) but it isn’t on crunchy and I don’t seem to have access to my brother’s Netflix or Hulu anymore.   Anyone watched it?  tia...
