SOWWIE: 'cause I didn't update Idolling tonight...I was busy packing for college (even though I have 2 weeks+ left...'orz) and was lazeh...'cause the pages hadn't been inked yet and looked sloppy...
Manga that makes me cry: Orange by Takano Ichigo...It's sorta sad, but what makes me saddest is that the mangaka is going to quit drawing manga once it's done....;3; I hope that's a rumor and that she was just stressed for a period and will change her mind! TT^TT Her stories are sooooo great and her art is even better!
Although I find most of these types of comments to be well meaning, they actually make the artist feel very uncomfortable.
What kinds of comments am I talk about? Comments like this
"OH he is lovely. he looks sad to me or lost in thought . he could even be ready to answer a question. he sure is wonderful. I like the flowers behind him. i think it helps move the eyes back to his lovely face. it also separates his outfit from the tile background ( they look like tiles.. or beads) ohh i see that in blue and yellow <3
very lovely. "
I hope I don't offend the poster by using them as an example...;3; Their comment is very kind, though. A bit...too kind?
The comments that talk about the way they think the person in the picture feels is just...odd...Because the artist was most likely not intending, especially in a portrait (which is what the person was commenting on), to give the person a certain feeling.
This is when the person commenting is thinking A BIT too much into the picture and it's just hard to reply to that kind of person.
On that note, yeah, most of the time I notice these comments in a sea of replies having it be the only one WITHOUT a reply...'orz It's saddening, but then at the same time, when I have received comments similar to this...it's hard to comment.
It sort of brings to light maybe that we as the artist, since we didn't actually think about giving the emotion, it feels like we're being scolded in a way. 'The character looks like they're feeling jubilant like they've seen somebody they haven't seen for years' Uhh...Actually we just wanted to draw a simple smiling face...not that deep...not that deep...O.o;
With art and with literature look at the context of the picture, if there is nothing for them to be sad or happy about then they probably are just smiling or frowning.
Basically all the artist wants to hear is how YOU feel about the picture, not how they think the character feels.
Also something that seems to bother a lot of artists: Don't compare their art to somebody else's. As in, don't say 'That person looks like Batman!' or something.
First of all, the person will think you being a shallow because you basically saying you did not look at the details of the picture that show that it is NOT Batman.
Second, it is a comment, I know, but it's like going to a picture that's actually of Batman and saying 'I like Batman'...Okay, that's nice, but you really aren't saying anything about the picture.
Lastly, as a compliment it doesn't really work. I know you might really love Rei Ayanami and you really like this character design 'cause she looks like Rei Ayanami, but the artist might no know who that is or even like that character so it might be offensive. Also it makes it seem like you're saying their character is unoriginal.
ALTHOUUUGGHHH~ For me personally, I don't really care about those kinds of comments. I actually like them 'cause I like comparing things, but I've heard a LOT of artists complain about it. I can see why it can be a problem and/or offensive, but it doesn't really bother me. I also kind of like them because if my character really is unoriginal then that's a kick in the right direction for me to make it more original.
If you're going to make a comment like that keep in mind that you might offend the person, and if you're looking to kick them in to the right direction then go ahead. It's a polite smack in the face! ;D
Alrighty~! I'm done ranting!
By the way, I read another manga.
This one has really cute art and the story is lovely:
Tomodachi no Hanashi
Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan
From Psycho Pandas:
"I have something I don't want to lose—
So much so that these terrible feelings have grown."
A pianist who attempted suicide 3 times, Juri, is taken to help her aunt at a prison where murderers who killed indiscriminately are sentenced to death. There, she meets a man named Yuu who took the lives of 3 people. A mother's antagonism--a brother's death... Together they embrace the violent rebellion in their hearts caused by the large, deep scars they carry. However, before long, they both embrace an earnest hope in their hearts. "I want to live..."
An adaptation of a novel by South Korea's most popular female novelist, Gong Ji-Young.
This manga...the art was SUPERB and by SUPERB I'm not like 'there was that one page and it was so pretty looking and they did a really good job, although occasionally the drawings were really bad in the panels themselves'...No man, I mean EVERY PANEL WAS PERFECT!
It feels so...so unbelievable when I read manga with really good artwork. It makes me flip out.
This manga made me cry...And I couldn't stop crying the entire time I read the last chapter...Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 all over again.
I really love these types of manga where they show different sides of a seemingly black and white situation. I mean, you kill someone, you must be bad, insane, etc. but that's not true at all.
I think I might want to read Gong Ji-Young's novels since they all have controversial themes...I mean, if I can find her stuff translated and online...'orz
But I HIGHLY recommend this manga. It's only 8 chapters. 8 beautiful chapters that are written so well.
Now off ta read more manga on meh listtttttt....'cause I've been neglecting manga for some reason...and anime...Maybe it's because if I get too attached I won't finish more Idolling...but I'm only posting chap 3 and then when I get around to it chap 4. I don't feel like writing chap 4 until I've improved a lot more after chap 3.
Okie dokie~! Adios~! :D

I was working on the cover for Idolling Chap 3 and decided to draw a pic of Klan for practice so I don't screw up on the cover.
Now I feel like doing a lot more drawings with copics.
I didn't do any lineart, and maybe that's what makes it easier because I disliked how this it made the pics look and then colouring over it didn't feel fulfilling.
Haha what is Klan wearing?! XD I wanted a weird outfit and I also wanted a print on his outfit...'orz it looks so silly now! XD
He kinda looks like Shou here...that was completely un-intentional...
Also his headphones look like a stethoscope...'orz I realized after I drew them that he probably only has it in one ear...'orz
Yepp...I hope to post the first few pages of Idolling chap 3 today~! :D
