Welcome to Twelve Gates

Welcome to Twelve Gates!

Unite. Create. Deliver. Twelve Gates.

Unite artists.
Create manga.
Deliver the message.

Uniting artists to create manga and deliver a message about our awesome God!


Anyone may join the group!

However, please read about our vision first. We are not your ordinary group!

Also, keep in mind that we're a team here. Others help you, so please help others!

And if you join, be kind, in and out of the group. If you're a member, keep our name clean!


We accept only original artwork and pages based on your original manga (at any stage in development).

Both one shots and series with multiple chapters are acceptable.

Short manga strips (including 4-koma) are allowed but only if it is related to a larger original manga project.

Fan art is not allowed. Miscellaneous Christian images or comic strips, even if they are in the style of Japanese manga, aren't allowed.

Please visit some of our awesome affiliates for that!

When submitting, be sure to check out the details of each folder and make sure you submit to the right one. This is helpful not only for us, but it also makes sure people can help you the way you want to be helped.

Read here for guidelines on what is acceptable and what is not.

NOTE: There is a five submissions per day limit in any folder. The purpose of this is to keep from flooding inboxes in order to allow members to keep up with comments and such without being overwhelmed.


TG's favorites will serve as a collection of resources and tutorials for creating manga! If you know of any great resources you'd like to share, suggest them to our favorites!


Hi everyone!

This message is long overdue.  I've been procrastinating in the hopes something would change and I wouldn't need to write it. But it's time.

I have not been keeping up with Twelve Gates, and it has continued to collect dust over the past many months. I'm not satisfied with simply accepting submissions into a group that is not intending to continue growing.

Truth be told, my passions have shifted elsewhere. I hardly read manga anymore, my own personal manga project has been set aside, and I have lost the resolve to be active on deviantART. It's not fair to the artists in this group, and it betrays the active mission of Twelve Gates.

As such, I feel the need to do one of two things:

1. If someone volunteers to take over leadership, I will hand Twelve Gates over to them. Or;
2. I will turn off submissions in this group indefinitely. It will remain as a resource to artists, and all of the current submissions will remain as they are.

While my passions lie elsewhere, I still believe in the mission of Twelve Gates. I believe in using every possible means to reach others for Christ, through art, through story, and through connections made between people on websites like deviantART. None of this has changed, and I hope that all of you will continue using and sharing your gifts.

Keep changing the world in the unique ways God has called you.

If you feel God has made manga your mission and you are interested in taking over Twelve Gates, please contact me. You can take what it is and make it something more, as you deem fit and as God leads you. I only hope that it will keep growing.

If I don't hear from anyone, then I will believe God has closed this door. On December 31st, 2018, I will turn off submissions and put the group to rest.

I know of many amazing things that came from this group. Nothing has been wasted. It was not always what I expected it to be, but perhaps it has been more—more than I could ever imagine. I thank God for the experiences and the amazing people I have met along the way.

I hope that you will all rise to face every challenge and will do whatever it takes to see your mission through to the end. May God use every piece of art you create, every letter you write, to impact the world. Thanks for the adventures! Stay awesome!

Just curious, but is this group active?
If so, I didn't mention this, but I'm a Christian mangaka working and publishing her first story on Webtoon!
It's called Shisa, and it's genre...well, I don't know. XD

It's about an apathetic ten-year-old who doesn't believe in anything. No supernatural beings, nothing. He lives his life in a gray perspective that is grim and negative, not associating with anyone around him. However, one day, his normal routine is broken by a boy with wings and a girl with tears in her eyes. A memory is made in that moment, but is it real?

Meanwhile, from another perspective, a mourning and terrified man watches over young souls as they rest. They dream, but what they dream will soon be their fate, a fate in which beauty and madness collide to reveal all the mysteries hidden within time.

The series is a bit on the complicated side, hahaha.
Also, I'm sorry for any confusing explanation, I'm tired lololol
If you'd like to see my manga, it's here!…

This group is mildly active--I believe a lot of members have fallen off the grid, though. Feel free to use it as little or as much as you please~

And your story sounds interesting!! Feel free to share any images from your manga in the group and possibly get others to take a peek~~ And thanks for joining!

Unfortunately, the official website closed... BUT I noticed one spot on the dA page that still lists it regardless. Sorry!!

But in our journals, we link to our archive page and previous magazines. You can reach that here:

It will no longer be updated/maintained.

I've been interested in creating a short Christian manga about food...yes, that's right! I was obsessed with Koufuku Graffiti anime and the Let's Eat K-drama and felt inspired with the story a well as the food scenes.

Here's a brief synopsis that came into my mind: the story is about a young widow who's part of her church's women's aid and how she was able to reach out to others through her cooking. One day, she received a call from her older sister that a nephew of her's from the cities, in which she never knew much about, is going to come and stay at her place for awhile to built his discipline and responsibilities, for he's a reckless child.
His family are believers but he doesn't seem to pay attention much, and so he was sent to live with the main character. That's pretty much what I came up with for now.
There may be lotsa foodie stuff going on too...but idk yet, but since I kinda want this story to attract food lovers, as well as Christians/non-Christians.

But not sure how I would pull this off since it might be a little too gluttonous to be a Christian-themed manga...let alone one that's gonna be about food. LOL

But this is just a little story I came up with after watching Koufuku Graffiti, LOL.

Well there there are many events and illustrations in scripture that revolve around food. Adam and Eve, Noah and his vineyard, Abraham eating with God and the angels, the elders of Israel eating before the LORD, Elisha and the widow, Elijah and the ravens, The priest and the offerings, Jesus was always at a feast. Maybe you could add that whole friend of sinners thing. There was Zacchaeus and most important of all the marriage feast of the lamb. All of them contains a different lesson so you definitely wouldn't be short on material.
