Special thanks to my partner in crime, J-Cleo, for helping me write this!
Creating manga is quite daunting as a project. You have to worry about so many things and prepare for unforeseen problems. While I don’t claim to be an expert on the field, I can at least share with you my experiences while on a quest to create my own manga.
Bear in mind, this guide is geared towards individuals serious about entering the field or wanting to create a well-developed story. That doesn’t mean you can’t use this advice if you’re a hobbyist (more power to you!) but this focuses on taking it that extra step.
The Story Concept
The first thing you need should be obvious: the concept, or idea, for your story. This could be something you’ve had in your mind for a while, a sud

I know I haven't been around much and it's also because I am terrible at updating my journal on DeviantArt and I'm getting notes asking if I'm dead ... WELL, I am sorry to disappoint, but I am not dead yet and I'm still around, working, eating, living, all that standard people stuff.
SO HERE, HAVE A RANDOM COMIC FOR NOW, which happened while Dexter and I were on our trip in Paris LAST YEAR that I haven't actually drawn until now (I am so late for everything ) :
And something about Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Pumpkin Pie, Fall, Halloween, Turkeys, etc etc in case I forget again and don't update this journal until NEXT YEAR.

Tagged. Sh*tHiya Ryceballs. So.. I was tagged by somone in one of those survey thingy, usually I tend to ignore tags... But this is a friend of mine, so I must do it. And she even bothered to make a video tag too, thank you for that! I also was gonna make a video as a reply until I realise I dont wanna show my face. (Camera shy) Lucky she gave me permission to stay in my comfort zone and write about it in my journal if I like. Here's her video by the way, by Ms :iconminnibutt:Tagged.

There's NO WAY Im telling anyone my biggest fear, that would be like showing your weakness allowing yourself to be open for attacks. I swear if I let this slip, there would be people coming up to me putting their hand on the back of my head and shouting "HEY RY THERE'S A SPIDER ON YOUR HEAD!" and I'll be running around screaming and crying like a little girl, jumping into the closet then freaking out again as I i

Writing Good Characters - Part OneWritten by Songdog-StrayFangOriginally I was asked to write an article on characters; what makes them good, bad, and what makes them balanced. However the more I thought about it, the more I realized that doing an article on “characters” was flat impossible. The reason for this is like writing a complete article on fiction. Fiction contains many genres, each with their own personality, purpose, and tropes. Characters are of the same merit. Usually when you hear people talk about characters, their focus is on the main character. But that’s not where the character cast ends. So instead, I’ve decided to write three articles on the main ‘types’ of characters: Protagonists, Antagonists, and Supporting Cast.Writing Good Characters - Part One2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Since most of what people care and talk about is the protagonist, that’s where we’ll begin. Usually when people discuss whether a character is well done or not, the word that gets tossed around is “Mary Sue”. But the
Pocket City ExplainedHello its Ryce Cooker here with something a bit unusual. I usually don't like to explain my artworks because I like to see how people sees them, I believe if I have to explain what is happening in my artwork, then I didn't do a good job, I would prefer if they just see it and gets it. But once in a while I like to break tradition LOL! So this time I feel like explaining the many things that are not too obvious in my latest doodle piece. Pocket City! Main reason being I added a few trivias and homages in there thats really only relevant to me but you might also be interested in (Or bored as hell after reading).

Uuuuh! Don't wake me up when September ends, cause I want to make the best of it! And in order to make the best of this month, is there any better way than to join our Repeating Contest?? Nope! So keep reading for the theme and rules!
A little F.A.Q before we get started :iconjumpingla-plz:
How does this work?
Every month I'll give you a theme and you'll have to create a Manga/Anime styled entry according to it
Is Fan Art or Fan Characters allowed?
I'm afraid not Only Original Characters and universes are allowed. Your Naruto based OC, for example, isn't elligible to enter or win.
Can we submit pre-existing works that fit the theme?
Nope. All entries must be made specifically for this contest, old artworks won't be accepted.
Alright! Now that we have the basics down, let's get into serious bussiness!

If you browse art on dA or Tumblr, you've probably seen these words before.
What exactly is a trigger?
Triggers come in multiple flavors.
Trauma triggersA person who has experienced a severe traumatic event—which isn't just limited to war veterans—may find that a particular sensory experience sends them back to that trauma. Although as camelopardalisinblue rightfully points out, it may not always be a full-scale flashback. Plenty of grey areas. Learn more about PTSD here.
I knew someone who had been abused in a room with fish-themed wallpaper. (Details changed to protect privacy.) So while something like the Jesus fish was tolerable because it was so abstract, they found real fish uncomfortable, and sudden exposure to a similar type of fish drawin
