Even with manga studio I still don't understand tone at all. I am good at cutting and pasting and thrn stripping it a bit, but choosing the best tone and how to arrange it on the panel I have no clue...this is why I don't want to write shoujo manga...;m;
Perhaps she got more assistants. That is what I like about manga, you can see the artist's style change and also see if maybe they got more assistants. If she switched to digital, though, should probably wouldn't need as much assistants so that could have also happened...ya never know, the world of manga making is a mystery.
Sounds super cool, but also really incovenient. I think I saw the program on the website where they specifically asked for exchange students from Europe...if you are gong t have an exchange program you should make it where it is easiy for them to understand the content of the lessons, but if it was straightforward maybe not so bad. Althoughh I had a ceramics class like that I think I would have learned more if I understood what the professor said like I missed out on the part about making our bowls bigger because that type of clay will shrink and stuff. But still sounds like an amazinv experience! I still feel very jelly!
I think it is also that the manga industry is super competitive and a lot of doujin artists use digital. I heard that f you draw manga traditionally you have a bit less competition than if you draw digitally. If you draw digitally then you are judged a lot more ob the quality. Also it might also just be that it is easier to find traditional techniques and materials? I dunno.
For Yana Toboso I assume that she inks it traditinally, but the to es are definitely digital. Most mangaka nowadays do not do tones traditionallh, I know that for sure, mainly because the higher assistants who are specialized in manga studio. I think a lot of artisrs use a xombination of traditional and digital. Which is nice cause I like mixed media like that.
So when you were over there were the classes i. japanese? Did you have any translators to help you?

Oh, I see, but they could also just be taking the fine arts sort of approach where they start off with the traditional stuff and how the classics did it so we know how to do it digitally? I don't know, but the digital sphere seems to be the sphere of young people and not so much the teachers but the innovators.

Yeah! That is really true! I feel like I can understand fhe feelings of my characters more! It is a shame that we have to experience heartbreak to write better stories...;orz.
I have full hopes for you that you will make it big in Europe and contribute to the world of manga in the Western hemisphere. The manga artists in Japan keep talking about the future of manga being international so I feel like you are fulfilling more than I am because I just want to write manga in the traditional Japanese way...
Thanks! I was mainly upset because although he said let's just be friends, he did not reply as frequently or enthusiastically as he did before, so even though he says that and I am fine with that, I would actually like to be friends. However it ihas all gotten better now, so it's all good!
