[update 9/9/13] Due to constant theft, I've been forced to add watermarks.

Lately I have been getting a lot of questions about tips and tricks to comic making on Tumblr (main: mikikoponczeck.tumblr.com/, comic project: crash-n-burn-comic.tumblr.com/… and here as well, so I decided to answer some questions this way. :3

Since I didn't exactly explain toning, here's a useful insight into how other professionals do it: blackmoontides.blogspot.de/201…
Here's a video tutorials for Manga Studio: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIfJ3q…
I myself am currently mostly copy-pasting high resolution screentones. (no resizing!)

Drawing a 156 page manga usually takes me about 8-12 months. (covers and promo illustrations included)

Other general tips to get started:
•Have fun and draw what you enjoy, not what others might want to see! (pressure from others kills motivation)
•Start with small project and try finishing them!
•Don't worry about it not being perfect. It's inevitable that the first few pages will look dumb if you look back.
•You will get better the more you draw.


As always, please do not repost this on any website without my written consent (especially 9gag or Funnyjunk, etc).
Thanks to everyone who keeps an eye out for me and my work!♥ ^ 3^
