If you fixed all the grammar and spelling issues it'd be way better

03-01-2011, 07:54 PM
Hey congratulations for finishing that. Yeah there are alot of spelling issues you could have avoided by just using a spell checker. But that's probably because of the deadline.

I just did a quick read of all the pages and it's interesting but I'll have to read it again when I have more time. The story looks interesting. I like the oval balloons but not the others with the sharp edges. I think if you redo some of them it might look alot better.

Oooh, it seems pretending to be a "real" mangaka snaps some wires inside his head!

03-02-2011, 09:20 AM
...i didn't have any to start with! :) There are a LOOOOT of type mistakes, i can speak perfectly but i suck at writing english! Plus i was all hyped when i started to write it,cuz i was all over the place from my PS 5 turning against me....and when i finished editing those ugly photos that weren't scanned, i was doing the happy dance....the HAPPY DANCE FOR GOODNES SAKE!!! And i was selfthought english, too. So please forgive me if i cant meet the standards of an ordinary human......T.T i have four type mistakes here and i don't know how should i write them right!

if u want help to correct them we can aid u

also gj on completing the manga month thing

Paneling by hand... now that's hardcore :P Sounds like you had some technical problems getting everything scanned in, so considering that it's not bad at all. I would recommend getting some software like the GIMP for your digital editing needs - that's all I use, and it works pretty well for me.

Your style and story are rather good! All that's left is to take some time to smooth out your 'pipeline' for making the final product and you should be putting out some HQ stuff.

03-04-2011, 09:03 PM
Nice, like the adam and eve as well the the "little sister" comedy.
a little confusing since i dont know whats going on or rather a little vauge...

03-05-2011, 03:58 AM
It looks interesting the story seems unique, but it needs more work to it.

03-27-2011, 06:32 PM
Now here is the second chapter cover page! I'm in a middle of a style crisis so the manga will look a bit diffrient... and also since i got far too many mistakes with the paneling it'll be a left-to-right comic so i don't think it clasifies as a manga anymore. Also i would love it if i could give you the unfinished pages with the text and if you could read them and corect my mistakes Evil_cake!.....yay only 4 mistakes!!!!


YAY!!! i also made the .......LOGO!!!!,,,btw how can i make it so it doesn't have any bg?....(no white)

03-27-2011, 06:33 PM
Also i would love it if i could give you the unfinished pages with the text and if you could read them and corect my mistakes Evil_cake!ok

SO heres something to show that the project is still alive......i know not a lot of peapole are interested :cat_tea: But ive got some friends that are so here it is.


I've found out the wonders of SAI and digital comic-book making. :cat_ahahaha:

Also some may notice i changed up on my style and i tried to do a good background......:cat_muuu: Need to practice MOAR!!!:cat_hmp: So what do you think guys and girls? :cat_pweeese: Also Cake send me your email so that i can stalk you with my bad grammar! :cat_ahahaha:

05-06-2011, 10:45 AM
Gedeon, I think you reminded me exactly why I was drawing manga in the first place. It was TO WRITE MANGA. I love that you can just sit down and do that much work, when I get art block if I draw anything beyond a face these days.

Just read the new one. The guy in the top right REALLY reminds me of Tenjo Tenge. I think your quality went up a lot, though.

Paint Tool Sai--FTW.

05-08-2011, 04:51 AM
Yeah, this looks nice - art is great...clothes are very well done.

You could probably make the lines outlining characters a bit thicker, to separate them from the background.

Really wish this forum could stretch itself horizontally...hate having to scroll around to look at everything =P

I'm going to be an open critic about this and make statements that I believe are true, and these are my actual opinions, nothing more and/or nothing less.

When I first started reading it, I thought it was "OK", with the generic battle scene in the first page that most mangas have, usually with an explanation of the fight and/or what makes the main character unique. The drawings were above-average, with a good appeal to the eye at certain points. After the first few pages, I was growing a little more satisfied with the story and drawings, and after a few more pages, there was an impression imprinted on to me. What I saw as generic, normal, and something done loads of times, was able to twist around in such a manner that it created originality while containing all the things that I love in generic manga. I'd compare it to FMA, in the aspect that while most mangas are battle mangas, this one follows with a hard-hitting plot and a unique charm that is hard to top. What you have created is truly amazing. I mean, it could be better, but you truly developed a manga with potential, and with a little more work, this could be a masterpiece.

Matt: +A+ The POWER OF GEDEON WILL ENLIGHTEN AND CLEAN YOUR MIND!!!! No jokes aside, im quite happy that you remembered about your calling from my little meaningless comic! _A_ <---- Btw this is a happy smiley that is upside down! Neat huh!? :D

Nyanlashmagasngsg: WHY ALL THE CRAZY LONG NAMES!!!!???? I keed! I love your long name Nyarlathotheshmishgar.......forget it....anyways +A+ The lines are going to be thicker from now on, maybe it'll be worse for notch but itll be quick and good enough.....=w= this sounded like one of my talks with my girlfriend XD!!! I keed! As for the forum sliding on the side..... maybe if you move your head from right to left constantly it will have the desired effect :D (by the desired effect i mean puking and EVERYTHING moving in circles(from right to left :D))

M3S1H: .............TWT Thanks!!! Glad you like it that much ( a masterpiece.........+A+ there will be one......in a couple of years.... i hope) Hope i continue the good work! I have quite a thought out (long) sorry! Im hopping that one day i will have it all in a form of my own comic! It will even be like one of those &#246;ver the years thing" to see just how much i have improved! Since my style changed in a month or so it will be really ....=w=.......urm.......funny.....since it will be a comic with every few pages done differently!

SO i finally started doing the comic again!!! I tried with Photoshop......-w- lets say it didn't go well...... Anyways i started doing it with sai.....but it took me too long to do one page! So i tried manga studio again( since the first time i tried i used it only for paneling(since i was so bad with line art that it made me sick T.T)) But then i started playing with the correction ratio thingy......anyhorse i finally did something that was acceptabl. I still need to improve my bg drawing(you can see that i avoided doing them in a few panels.....it looked better that way....=v=) and my shading should be practiced! Anyhorse here are the pages!

http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc362/Gedeon-Gedza/strangerswisdompage2chapter2.jpg Done in sai...it looked better in my head, but still its ok.

http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc362/Gedeon-Gedza/Strangerswisdompage3.jpg Here im experimenting with the BG. A few of the girls/guys ,not sure anymore, did this thing when iverything is just bllury strokes of grey and black. And it looked good! .....not in my case...=w=

http://i1208.photobucket.com/albums/cc362/Gedeon-Gedza/SWPage4.jpg And here i finally use the program thats made for this! I love all the tones and bg, and effects, and the lins.......EVERYTHING!!! I just cant figure how to shade here! Any tips,hints anything?!!

Used photoshop to shade a little....need to figure out what to do with the hair! It looks good but when its time to color/shade it.....it kinda gets tricky. Also since you are probably wondering "WTF IS GOING ON HERE?" Ill tell you that suzzy is having a flashback......hence the panel with the gray lines and notes...(its supposed to be like WUUUUSHH flashback) =w=

So guys whadda ya think!?
