Group Mission & Monthly Member Highlight

This group exists for artists who's styles, though richly influenced by those of japanese anime and manga, aren't simply defined by the norms of today's mainstream. We're not looking for "experts" as contributors (though experts can freely join too), we're just looking for Comic Artists, Mangaka, and illustrators who are bringing something new to the table, something that speaks for them and can inspire others.

"Every Month we will be highlighting one of our very own members here as well as attempting an interview with said member which will be posted as a journal entry for everyone to enjoy!"

What's up Everyone! Hika-Ree here and I've been given word of a great opportunity for anyone willing~

_________________+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+_________________

Calling All NYCC-Interested Artists!

The Global Manga Initiative will be hosting a Promotional Booth on the Show Floor of this year's New York Comic-Con, and we're extending this exposure to interested Manga/Webcomic artists to have their work shown at one of the biggest pop-culture events of the year, no-strings-attached. G.M.I. is an Online-Comics-Anthology dedicated to forwarding the global Manga-industry; expanding and pushing the boundaries of Manga/Webcomics and seeing what sort of amazing talent can emerge from all across the world. We will also be working with a Charity Group, the Anders-Larson-Toich Foundation, to run a Charity Auction to help raise money to support young adults with various types of Cancer. This year, the Global Manga Initiative will be occupying Booth #1701 on the NYCC Show-Floor, right next to Square-Enix, of "Final Fantasy" and "Dragon Quest" fame; feel free to drop in and pay us a visit!!

Check out our website here: gmimanga.exepicstudios.com/

We're willing to promote all works accepted into our Online Anthology FOR FREE.

You retain all Creative and Publishing control of your work. Even if it is featured on our website, or in our Promotional Booth, your work remains yours; we are simply promoting it for you. You retain creative-control of your work, and the right to publish it on other sites and places you see fit. All featured-talent will be credited in a artists-book featured at the booth with all contributors credentials and contact information available to interested partys. The idea is to showcase talent from across the world.

Just a few things to keep in mind if you are interested-in or currently preparing for promoting at the NYCC Promotional-Booth:

1. PROMOTION-PRODUCTION SCHEDULE IS LIVE: As we approach the convention-event, we need to design and order the promotional-material for the booth itself. As design and production time are a factor here, with certain pieces taking weeks to create and arrive, this means that EVERY SINGLE DAY we need to make deadline-calls for which works do and do not get included in a promotional aspect (like banners, signs, handouts, etc.). Therefore, the sooner your work is featured on gmimanga.com and you give us the greenlight for promotion, the more we can incorporate your work into the promotion itself, and the more exposure you, the artist, ultimately get. For example, we have already designed and ordered a full-page ad in the NYCC Show Guide at the end of August (due to ReedExpo deadlines), so any works submitted after that time obvioulsly missed that chance. In other words, HURRY~!

2. WE NEED AN ARTIST'S CONSENT TO PROMOTE ANY OF THEIR WORK - Even if you ALREADY ARE ON G.M.I., we cannot promote any of your original-creations without your express written consent. If you would like to get your work featured in the Promotional Booth you need to send us a Note on DeviantArt and/or an email to info@gmimanga.com stating which series you are agreeing to allow us to promote, and whether or not you would like to participate in the A.L.T. Foundation's Charity Auction, and how (submitting art, handouts, etc. to be included in the auction...). Please note, we will be promoting all approved works in the following formats:

-Promotional Decor: Booths, Banners, Signs, Displays, etc.

-Informational Handouts: Manga-Samplers, Info Flyers, Business Cards etc.

-Promotional Handouts: Buttons, Pins, Screen Cleaners, etc.

We WILL NOT feature ANY work in the A.L.T. Foundation Charity Auction without the creators express-written consent, and participating in the auction, while appreciated, is strictly OPTIONAL; we will be selling your art in the auction, with all proceeds going to a not-for-profit charity foundation, so neither you or us will see that profit (though obviously you'll still be credited as the creator of your work), it goes directly to charity.

3. Your Series must be Featured on gmimanga.exepicstudios.com/, or cued to be Featured, for us to promote it at our Promotional Booth. This is incredibly easy, as applying to be featured on G.M.I. is as simple as sending an email to info@gmimanga.com, or a DeviantArt Note to Petenks introducing which series you'd like to be featured. Once we greenlight the work and have your permission, blam, it's being promoted at the NYCC Both for free, and you and your work are gaining attention/exposure in one of the biggest pop-culture events of the year, simple as that.

4. The more material you send us to work with, the better the overall-promotion. This goes without saying, but if you really want your work to stand out at NYCC, the higher the quality the artwork sent, and the more of it you send to us, the better we can promote it. Also, VECTORS HELP US IMMENSELY. If you aren't familiar with the term, a Vector is basically a colored piece of your character with no background (or a solid, easily cut, single-color).

Here is a good-example of a Son Goku Vector: fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/i/201…

The reason these are so helpful to us is that with a clean "sticker"-like example of your character, we can make way better and higher-quality promotions than if we have to spend all our time clipping excess backgrounds/characters/etc. We take Vectors like the above and combine them to create promotional pieces like these: petenks.deviantart.com/art/G-M…
Stay tuned for more! ^_^

Thanks.

      -Sincerely, the G.M.I. Team

I don't think it could fit into the group's demands, but that's my opinion. Try to submit it into the propper folder and see what others contributors think.

By experimental I'm not too sure what you mean. This confuses me. I don't know if my style is very original nor my stories. So idk if it'd be okay for me to join. I don't have much confidence that I could wow the audience either. Just that I'm an upcoming artist but idk if I belong in this group or am welcome to join with just that. :\ Can I  get an answer for my also confusing question. Sorry and thank you in advance should anyone answer my question.

Experimental, as in something that looks different, unusual, or new.  Although since absolutely nothing is original anymore we pretty much ask you to draw something with your own unique spin on it, since 'unusual' still exists (when the image of a lollypop tarantula wielding AK-47s with each legs like an acrobat from venus is considered normal and absolutely plausible, then you can question my above statement).
Just wing it.  Do something cool.  Do something unique.  We've all got it.  So do you.  Get to it.

Oh I see thank you. Sadly I'm not too confident in my powers to do something as grand as that. Thank you for your time and answer though maybe in the near future but for now I need more practice.
