Manga pages work in progress

Wed Oct 30, 2013, 6:08 PM



As you may already know, I've been working for the past few months on volume 4 of my manga Carciphona, and I'm finally about 15 pages away from finishing inking all 150 pages!! Then after that I have to tone like 60 pages, draw the cover and put it together as a book haha... ha... that's why I haven't had the time to draw any new drawings and I miss it so much ;_;

Here are some WIPs! boring snapshots because no spoilers

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 ^^

That's really cool. It's the way I want to work as well, having quite an unsteady hand ;)
Hope I'll reach a same sort of quality someday.

Haha, inking process is a pain (well, not really, I like how the feeling of it...But that's justs inking, nothing new).
Keep up the good work ! :D

Argh! My father told me that L.A. is going to be crowded and the travel from where I live is five hours to L.A. so I don't think that I could go. I probably can go to another con nearby.

Honestly you've got to be the most amazing manga artist I've come to know of that isn't part of some gigantic corporation! O________O At first I thought you normally drew your manga digitally but to see that you do it all by hand.......................... I'm even more stunned, let's just say. :iconfinallyplz: Why oh why must you kill me with your works?

I can draw 1-3 pages a day, but I don't have a schedule set in stone, so I can draw like 20 pages a week or 0

How is it possible to achieve such clean lines with pencil?

It looks so beautiful! Definitely going to be checking it out. :D Question, do you do the entire comic traditionally? If so, what kind of paper and pens/pencils do you use? I'm sorry if you've already answered this, and I just haven't located it yet. o-o

I only do lines traditionally, and those are done with a 0.3 mechanical pencil on cardstock paper (:
