Manga A Practice Manga

I'm back with another manga plot. Since I don't have another place to upload stuff, it'll take awhile to get the whole story out. It'll take awhile to get into the story, too. This was supposed to just be a practice manga, but with the Tokyopop deadline coming up March 15th, .... Anyways, I'd appreciate any constructive criticisms. 20- pages.
fyi: if you don't like insinuations to people dying, don't read around page 5-ish nor the last page, whichever that is.

You might want to make it a bit darker, the grey just looks a bit choppy, I think. The shadows look really good as do the eyes. I think it could kick the butt of some of the work that was in it last time. Keep at it!

Wow, Amazing. I just love your style of art. I remember your last manga, and it was really,..inspiring^_^. Lol, Now you've made me want to mke [i]my[/i] own manga.

And yes, I do agree that the gray is a little choppy, but nothing too bad.


BTW: Best of Luck in the Tokyo Pop Manga contest ^_~

Wow, that looks so professional! I particularly like the last frame - it's a good angle to draw from. I see what people mean about the choppiness - it looks like the tones used in manga, but the 'dots' and textures need to be a little finer so they don't cut up the images as it were. Otherwise, I think it's brilliant - heh, direct me to the entire manga!

Good luck with TokyoPop - looking great so far.

[size=1] Great art and beginning for your manga, I wish you good luck in the contest.

The one major problem I have with it, though, are the screentones. They look pretty messy [mostly in the first page], and I would suggest to cut back a bit. Other than that, it's all wonderful. ^_^[/size]

Very nice, once again. I love how you make some frames overlapping others. For example, the fourth frame, where Val is running, and his head comes in front of the third frame.

I also like the expressions on their faces. Like [again] on the fourth frame, Sam looks as if she's surprised or shocked, and I could just imagine the tone of her voice.

[color=teal]I like where you're going with this manga. You're deffinitly hitting on the adult life-work-dating theme well, story-wise. Seems very professional.

The only problems I can see so far are from the visual aspect. The people and objects are drawn very nicely, but as stated before, the screen tones have been making the shading way too doty. :/ The speach bubbles are also kind of wacky, mainly in the second page, and the font is pretty blury and annoying on the eyes, though that could be because you say you are resizing it.

One last thing that I need clarifying on -- this Tokyopop manga contest.. they let you go left to right? I was just wondering if they may have required "authentic" style, or something.[/color]

Left to right, because they want it to be "American manga" not completely authentic Japanese manga. Since I'm quessing you're using your computer for the tone, I'd say use smaller dots, but vary the space between them. But I absolutely love your style!

Man, I have no chance in this comic... *Sits in a dark corner*

It's the oddest thing. You'd think resizing it would also resize the dots. I think that's the smallest I can go. ::grrrr :: Hopefully, Tokyopop has a much more sophisticated system than mine.
Yeah, I started drawing authentic style, so I had to flip the pics on my computer. ^^
I've always done rather poorly on speech bubbles. : (
Well, here's the 4th page.
