Hello! I thought I'd share with you my ongoing webmanga called Crimson Shadows. This is my first manga I ever drew on paper (I used to draw on MS Paint alot, my art was...very terrible...) I have been drawing manga since 2009 I think, but it wasn't until sometime in 2010 I began drawing on paper. The more I drew, the quicker I started improving.

This manga is sort of an experiment, I guess. The earlier pages look pretty bad (this was before I used digital screentone in the later pages), but the newer ones you can notice some improvement. I'm a totally amatuer, I admit, but I hope to develope and grow as a mangaka and get better! (I can finally do side views better....but backgrounds is still a problem >.<)

With no further babbling, I give you Crimson Shadows:
(I am seriously going to redraw volume 1 and ch.1 cover >.>)

Constructive critique and comments are welcomed! ^.^

Grr do not use MS Paint it's a terrible tool for drawing, personally I think hand drawing is the best way to draw considering your are not limited to a mouse and a couple of default shapes(although I hear Photoshop, Bamboo, and a couple of others are pretty good tools). Your drawings are decent, but could be alot better on pencil/pen and paper.

but imagining that wound and my situation back then.....:cat_cryincorner: well that's another story so let's leave it at that:cat_wahaha:

as for you manga
your better than me in picking on what tone to use for the background.. you really do know how to show emotion...
and ofcourse I LOVE YOUR STORY!!!:cat_shylove:

but you know you don't have to put onii-chan and some other things to make it cute... but you are amazing(how did you know the kanji of bible?):cat_what:
i'm just saying you are an english girl and you don't have to force your self to make a japanese manga...
well it's not a crime to do that so i guess it's alright..
