I entered a 15 page submission to the "Rising of the Stars" manga competition for the summer. I'll show you 5 of the pages. The last 5, my best drawn and laid out pages. I improved w/every page I did, thats why my last ones where my best.

You will see only the last page has a page number. For the printing, I went back and added page numbers to all the pages.

holy blue hells, that is some nice piece of art. I would choose it to be in Rising Stars ( but I haven't seen the other applications )
anyways that is really good, love your characters especailly Gedden, but I did notice that he does look kinda like Sephiroth. hmmm well anyways I would give it a solid 10/ 10, but who am I to judge. oh i am planning on entering the Rising Stars next year so I might just keep you guys in the know about my plans and the way it is coming along, especially you, you might be able to give me some pointers.

Dude, is that screentones? I wish I could figure it out. Or is that CG? I wonder if they except that.... :: ponders:: I tried cg last year, but it seems as if the standard is screentones, which is a helluva lot more difficult. Good luck. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it.

Dude. Nice job. ^_^ I had no idea that you were that good at drawing.. Or CGing.. Or whatever the heck you did to make that awesome piece of work.

However, I find the faces to be a little.. Off sometimes. In a couple frames they sort of lack expression, but it's barely noticeable.

Heh.. The plot seems a little confusing... ^_^' I, myself, entered a one-shot romance/comedy due to the fact that my action stories span WAY too far to even explain the prologue in 20 pages. (I would post my own creation if I had a scanner.)

[size=1] You'd be surprised at what mangas won last year's contest.

I've talked to many artists with extremely-well drawn out mangas that did not win at all. The winners' mangas' art was worse than many of the artists I've talked to, but they reason they won was because of their storyline and unique-ness.

--Well, :/...there was one manga entry that won, and it was a magna style version of some story by Hanes Christian Anderson. The artist won because of her spacing...=_= [/size]

The only reason I can think of that would allow you not to win is if they don't allow cg, which would be abysmally stupid. but... well, we'll see. There are some proportional problems, but nothing blatantly obvious.
I really have no idea what the judges are going by. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. And check your e-mail. ^-^ all the time. ^-^

Side note: Anyone who hasn't mailed in their stuff by today... you have serious problems. check the sig.

Im sorry but that probably wont win. They said not to leave any real cliffhangers. They said it must be a complete story even if its part of a bigger series...
