Treading Ground [Aug. 29th, 2006|11:11 pm]
Original Manga

[music |VAST - Turquoise]

I've been a member here forever, but it just occurred to me that I never introduced myself or my comic, so I figured I'd give it a shot.

(Rated WEB-MA for Strong Language and Sexuality)

I'm the writer and artist of Treading Ground, a twice-weekly webcomic currently in the top 25 over on ComicGenesis. I'll be the first to admit that my comic style is heavily manga-influenced, but it's definitely my own. Being a webcomic first and foremost, it falls somewhere in between a comic strip and a manga.

Here's a brief description of the plot:

Between work and home, those of us in dead-end jobs live two separate lives. Sometimes they both suck.

Working at a grocery store with no future to speak of, Nate Ashborne is not exactly the best example of a successful 21-year-old. But Nate must be good for something, because he's attracted the affections of one Rose Crowley, who has a bit of a reputation for sexual deviancy. Nate might be able to get over the whole 'slut' issue, but there's one more problem... Rose is only 16 years old!

So, please give it a shot, and if you like it, for the love of God link it! :-D Thanks.

[music |Goo Goo Dolls - Slide]

Hello there, My Name's Abi/Safty I'm really new to this, but I've had this story for a few years now and I've recently decided I wanted to make it into a web-comic my problem is I'm not very leet with HTML and making websites, Livejournal will probaly be the more likely option because I know how to use it. ..Oddly enough My story doesn't have a name either, all the characters have names...but the series itself doesn't, I'll post up a hell of alot more in the future including character profiles, images and random bits of story I've written to go with it, Any helpful advice would be muchly aprreciated, can't wait to hear from y'all

When a line is not a line [Oct. 20th, 2005|10:39 am]
Original Manga

Just reading the news that a major manga-ka in Japan has been caught red-handed plagiarizing from other manga. For those of you who don't read Anime News Network (and I don't blame you for that, most of the time, they prove they're as unprofessional a bunch of pseudo-journalists as possible), the word is out: manga artist Yuki Suetsugu copied panels from her recent works Flower of Eden and Ikkitosen from a variety of other sources, from the manga Tenjo Tenge, Slam Dunk, and Real, to album covers and photographs of model Kate Moss. Moreso, she has admitted it via her publisher, Kodansha, which has also apologized for the fracas (and to date, has stopped the current publication of Flower of Eden, as well as pulling all of her other works from shelves and issued a recall). As of now, her career is toast, and the best she'll be able to do at this point insofar as the industry goes is sell dojinshi at Comiket under an assumed name (and possibly with a stand-in, should pictures of her be in the public).more behind the cutCollapse )

[mood |strange...]
[music |The Adicts- Fifth Overture]

'allo, I guess I'm new here, well, not much to guess about it, I AM new here. So first off, thanks for putting together this group-forum for posting-venting-testing-and offering snactuary full of useful criticism for non-Japanese manga artists (original, western, whatever you want to call it... frankly to me it's all manga as far as I'm concerned. As for examples of my stuff, the best place is to go here which is my official website. Look in the folio section, under iain/GILGRIM and meander and gawk as much as you can stomach. Also I'm going to go ahead and post a bit of something that i've been working on lately (and lovingly) called THE CEMETARIANS CHAPTER ZEROCollapse )

Well, my wife and I have passed what we feel is our first milestone on our manga work-in-progress. We've shown it to several people who have been keeping track of it, and now I'm asking you, our peers, to take a look at it and tell us what you think. If you spot an error or something we could work on, please let us know.

More stuff can be found at the site itself: http://hanaroad.megamistudios.com/

thanks for your time. ^_^
