Blackbird II pg 55-56 by shilin Blackbird II pg 55-56 by shilin
sometimes I don't know why I do some things, like giving blackbird a stupid chain instead of just a whip...... but I guess at least now I know how to draw chains quickly, just need to know how to draw them nicely next time!

This is really amazing.. Like seriously.
I'm trying to get my own manga up and running myself. It's not easy... An the worst part is I have no idea where to start even as far as getting my manga out there. Like, I'm entering a small manga contest in hopes that I'll win and my name and art will start getting out there but i unno. =/
Got any advice?

it's important to be prepared when you start, start with lots of content ready and enough backup to keep update consistent for a long time to secure your new fanbase, and maybe put up ads on popular comic reader sites, posting it on your DA, using sites like drunkduck or smackjeeves that already has a community, and prove to people your comic is here to stay.

the rest is your art, story and skill (:

try for some baggier, foldier clothes... people love the drama of the flowing cape... i think that's how FMA got so big, he had lots of really good clothing

Thank you for the advice! I do love to draw fabric myself and it's very helpful, but for the current characters' situation it's not too fitting!

I think you got the chain's proportion and angles properly. Chains and braids, two things that I make too difficult if I'm not careful.

Man I cant draw chains fast or as good as you. But if you say it can be better then I will wait in anticipation to see it <3
I love the somber looking towns, and the beautiful lines to represent action here.
You truly have talent :iconiadoreitplz:

Do you have a trick for chains, if you don't mind me asking? I've learned to box each link during sketching, but I still can't get near your perfect links.

I draw 4 lines as guide to the path of the chain, and then draw the lines using that guide (: I'll make a simple guide and post it along with the next page.

nothing like those black thoughts with the emphasis on the thinking characters eye as dramatic things happen.
It really brings you in to the story.
