Carciphona

Carciphona is my original manga series. It is available to read for free online and updates weekly on carciphona.com, and is published by myself in print whenever I finish a new book. Most of the artworks I do are for this series. Please check it out and if you enjoyed it, share it with your friends and those who may be interested! Thank you for all your support ^^

Hello Shilin ! :heart:
Just wanted to say my first 2 books of Carciphona just arrived today and I'm already in the 84th page of the first book ! :D
I really like the story and I can't wait to finish them ! :dummy:
Keep up the amazing work ! :hug:

And may I ask a question? :aww:
The books are coming in pieces? I mean, I have ordered all 4 books of Carciphona and only the first 2 of them came today ( in the same package ) but not the other two... Is that normal? The other two will come a little after? :meow:
Thank you ! :la:

Hello! You should have gotten a few emails stating that said the following:

"Items may arrive separately. This is because for some reason shipping 4-5 books together is more expensive than shipping them in pairs of 2. This is also because I cannot ship some items together, for example the much bigger art book with the manga books, rolled up posters etc. So if you receive only 1 book or 1 necklace out of your entire order, please give the rest of your order until the time I've indicated above to arrive."

Ohh, now I see ! :meow:
Sorry for not looking that before, I rarely look up my mails these days because the most of them are advertisements ! :XD:
Plus, I don't have a lot of spare time, so, yeah... ^^;
I will check that out :aww:
Thank you very much ! :hug:

Omg YOU did Sona ? I LOVE your art. And it's fun to find out that I already like some of your art without knowing they were from the same person. I already saw "Weave the heavens", "Shatter in my hands" and your "Fanart : Riven" on another websites :)

Hey there Shilin :) I was looking at your site and I stumbled upon your song you wrote for Veloce I believe... I must say, it is moving and quite beautiful. I confess I am listening to it on loop and I feel so peaceful. Thank you for writing it.

Hey Shilin, I have one question! Have you drawn anything for card-game Kings and Legends? Because one card totally reminds me of your style! I mean this card: cdn1.viwawa.com/forums/kal/epic_velyn.JPG I will be glad for the answer :hug:

Hello Shilin! Me again. Sorry, my English is not the best.
I wanted to ask how do the light effects in photoshop?. after I find amazing. Speak of the gradient in black and gray looks fantastic in all tables. Also wanted to know how do you do the shading points in photoshop? I use Manga Studio Ex 4, however I think photoshop is much better, I just want to learn to do those things. Thanks in advance Shilin-sama!

I don't know what you mean by shading points or light effects specifically, you can watch some of my videos on youtube.com/shilintv as well as look at the tutorial I just posted recently to get an idea

I saw your latest tutorial, but it is a color illustration. I speak of the manga in black and white. In this page:

shilin.deviantart.com/art/Carc…

in the second and fourth panel. In the light effects ranging in background.
you see?
