Info on Beachside Village:

Here's some information that will help you have a better chance in winning!
Read My Comic! (specifically Cpt 1 - pages 1,4,5,6,15 and Cpt 2- pages 1,2)
Check out the #11 area of The Yugana Kingdom Map to see the landscape. Also looking at the residents of #11 and #12
Beachside village is a small village where few, summer loving, kind villagers live. This peaceful 'neighborhood' borders Sunny Meadows where they get together every once in a while to brainstorm ideas on how to keep the beach clean and how to get more people to move in, ect. Beachside village, as you can guess, borders Beachside: a beautiful and soft beach with poms, fish, and crystal clean waters with part of a coral reef. The coral is collected in the fall by villagers to get some extra cash. For the most part people at Beachside are very nature-loving and love to swim, or are very happy or nice people.
There are jungles, beaches, tropics, and flat land, along with the British/Hawaiian mix of a town.

What Would Give You A Better Chance:

exotic colors like blues, greens (colors of the ocean) sunset colors of pinks, oranges, and reds, and anything you can think of!
Tropical color palettes and beach color palettes, as seen if you click those links, are good examples! You can use some of those listed, or just make your own stuff! x'D
include nature - leaves, rainforest things, tropical things, beach wear, and nautical themed stuff like crabs and such are great.
I should be able to tell it's mayor, and also the mayor of this village! c':
person: happy, optimistic, always wanting to please everyone, in touch with people and nature, down to earth, positive, energetic but laid back
new to the job


also date may be extended if there aren't enough - v -

About Revenge of the Queen.

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 31, 2015, 4:57 PM


Thank you very much everyone who's voted on my poll and given me your opinion about my new idea.

The situation is this: Revenge of the Queen, as a self-published manga, is not profitable for me. It takes me really long to draw, time I'm not spending working on other jobs that do pay well, so I can't afford to draw it. I've tried to sell the idea to editorials that paid as much as I'd need for it to be profitable, but there was no luck so far.

Because of that, this is what I determined: I'm going to write the story as an amateur novel with illustrations here and there (I'll probably release it in chapters). I'm not a writer and English is not even my mother tongue, which are the two main reasons why I'm going to make it available for free. As a manga it didn't give me enough money, as a novel it would probably be even worse (taking into account what I just said), so I'd rather write it on my free time knowing there are people who will read it freely.

Many of you said I shouldn't give it for free, so what I'll do is to give a donation option. If you like it and you have money to spare and you want to give it to me, you can donate. It will not be necessary though, so don't feel bad about it if you can't (and feel free to read it if you want to anyway, that would make me happy!).

I'm basically turning a product I expected to sell into something I do for fun and out of love. If I don't charge for it, nobody will be able to complain they spent their money on a text clearly written by an amateur *hides* I'm just trying to keep it fun and safe for myself, and at the same time, I'd be so happy if more people wanted to read my story.

The only downside is that I won't translate it into Spanish, even though it's my mother tongue. I'm going to write it on my free time, which is not much, so I won't have time to do it in two languages (I chose English as hard as it is for me because it's international). I'm deeply sorry m(_ _)m

as much as I love drawing manga, this new idea made me very excited (TwT) Because I thought I'd have to bury this story... but now I feel I can share it somehow.

Thanks for your time, concern, ideas and comments, I love you all :heart:

Stupidity Should Be Illegal

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 31, 2015, 7:22 PM
I really need to stop browsing through bullshit on tumblr. Found this little gem.

"-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.

-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.

This is not difficult."

That is literally the biggest pile of crap I've ever read in my life. Allow me to be my usual smartass, logical self and throw some facts up in this bitch.

The definition of racism is the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

The definition of sexism is prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex. 

I will give them that one, because yes, many women have to deal with sexism on a daily basis and it's wrong. But if you're doing the same shit to men that they do to you, you are sexist and you can't deny that. As far as the racism thing goes, I don't think a million facepalms could accurately depict my irritation towards that statement. Yes, you can be racist towards white people. White people can be and are oppressed, just as black people and those of any other race. Perhaps we're not discriminated against to the point that minorities are, but it still happens and those who believe white people and men cannot be harmed or oppressed need to tie up their high horses near a cliff, then jump off and plummet a few hundred feet into a big pool of intelligence. 

If you want to look smart and actually be a decent person, try to eliminate racism and sexism as a whole instead of focusing only on certain people who have to undergo it.
