Well, if your very desperate for some pens, here are some
http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Dipping-Pen-Wood-or-Marbled/dp/B004SPTCW0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1334329868&sr=8-3
Amazon does ship to NZ.


instructions on making dipping pens http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Dip-Pen
(I love making my own tools)

However, there are other means to create the same look
Have you tried using a regular old drawing pen? You can get really close to the same look.
How about bamboo brushes? There a little hard to use at first, but you can get used to them.
Im sure you can get dipping pens at any arts/craft store.

I don't mean to sound drilling, but I just want to give you all your options :D Because you could get dip pens and find out you don't even like using that medium. It's a good idea to find something you like to use but is easily accessible. But then again, I don't know if you have used dip pens before. From personal experience, I can say that pens are much more of a friend than pure ink. I've gone over stuff in ink just to have it make a slight splatter, ruining the piece. Pens are much more friendly and you can get the same look.

D&T is the Drawing, Tutorial & Animation section of this forum. Questions that are art related should be in here not the General Discussion. Anyways, welcome to Manga Tutorials! Please don't post one after another in a short space of time. If you need to add anything, use the Edit button on your post. It's there for a reason. C:

To be honest, You don't really need complete materials in order to draw a very good lines and stuffs... you only probably need pointing pens and markers with different thickness..
how you handle it just depends on your strokes.
You can anyway Edit it when you scan it.

Don't think that you can draw good if you have good materials.
Just don't spend too much money on it.

Good Camera might be good enough.. though you have to be really careful with angle of the camera.

As for graphic programs, you can buy one or get one on the internet(if you don't live in US or any county that has ACTA or SOPA stuffs)

Alright you're talking bullshit ram. I live in America amd I've beem illegally torrenting really bug shit for years. 3ds Max and Sony Vegas? Got 'em all. Zbrush, Flash, and Photoshop CS5.1? Got 'em. 22 games that cost $50 that I haven't even played yet? Yeah, got 22 games. We do not have ACTA and SOPA. We have stealing laws. Or, at the very least, "cheating developers out of your $2,500 purchase" laws. And they are extremely easy to bypass. Mayma, PM me and I can tell you where to get Photoshop free of charge.

lol 22 games

I think I herd of it somewhere on some other forums that some mom have been caught for downloading some mp3 files and was charged millions...

I was pretty sure it was US, Man I guess I can't believe everything on forums these days, probably just spread some rumors to stop piracy

Anyways for making manga.. I have almost all graphic softwares(yeah I didn't pay for it).. if you need anything you could just pm me and I'll send you link.

They weren't torrenting (a.k.a. they weren't being smart). Gunzet only does direct download but idk why the hell he'd do that. I guess he gets them all from reputable sources, but I still prefer to torrent from people like thethingy, Reloaded, DigitalInsanity, Skidrow, and other guys of their stature.

uh... it's said Unable to send a private message to "Mereana4manga;)" as they have disabled this option for the moment.

Edit:Try to ask Sylux, he does have a premium account maybe that will make a difference or something... don't worry he's the type to reply right away..

Dashboard > settings

there should be account settings and privacy settings on the right side.

press privacy settings and just put anyone and yes to everything.

Anyways.. I'll try again since were friends now
