Away on SaturdayI don't really know how muchyou care, but I thought I should let you know that I'll be away on Staruday for almost whole day. I doubt I'll get online when I get home, and I know that I won't be online at all while I'm on the trip.
Anyway, I'm going with my parents and grandpa on a little shopping trip in Leibnitz (Austria). While they're gonna buy their stuff, I'm probably gonna look for new drawing supplies and stuff. I'm really excited about it 'cause I haven't been out of Croatia for 2 years now (since grandma passed away).
The trip to there takes about 3 hours, so I need to pick a book to read in the car, and update my music on my phone.
I'm gonna miss you all.
Hope you'll have a great rest of the week.
I'm going slightly mad

i'll keep it short, but it's still importantI'm not gonna go into details because it's kind of complicated and hard to explain in English. So the short version is, I lost myinternship chance at the nursing home. There were some complications with some paperwork and because of that I can't get my internship there. I'm not sure who's more angry at the people who were in charge with that paperwork - me or the director of the nursing home. Anyway, I got payed for the week I worked there, but that's about it. Didn't get too much but it could've been worse.
The worst part is, I feel like I'm back at the beginning, like I'm not moving anywhere. This job was supposed to get me back on track with my life, and now it just feels like it wasn't meant to be, like I'll be stuck in the same place forever.
Now, please don't feel pity for me, I don't want nor need that, it's not helpful, but only makes me feel even worse.
But look on the bright side - I'll have more time to get back into art. hahahah //facewall
It was nice while it lasted. I rea
a little update on my lifeI'll keep it short because I'm dead tired and it's really hot. OTL
I GOT A JOB! Today was my first day and it was so fucking AWESOME!!! :icondummyexcitedplz:
The people that work there are really nice.
I'm working as a cook in a really fancy nursing home. I'm not a big fan of old people, but I don't interact too much with them so it's cool.
It's also surrounded with nature, lots of trees and shit.
Anyway, how are you guys? What'd I miss since I last wrote a journal?
I really miss you.
hmmm..I guess my inactivity has seriously crossed the line.. Sorry guys, I'll make it up to you.. Soon. But first I have to reply to some notes, two of them being commissions. //facewall
In other news, I have finally moved to my grandpa's house. Still looking for a job tho. //sobs in a corner
It's hot here. //dies
I miss you guys. Love you. Stay safe.
Creating your own MangaIntroduction
You have a great story, a bunch of characters and you want to create a manga. However, where do you start? Do you have it Left->Right or Right->Left? How should you publish it (*note: some publishers may have additional requirements/restrictions)?
The process is pretty much the same for any graphic progression such as comics.
Luckily, there are a great number of tutorials to help you on your way.
A storyboard is a panel or series of panels which detail the sequence of significant events in a planned scene, i.e. a rough sketch coupled with some words to describe the actions in the scene.
At this point you'd need to have an idea of whether you are making a left->right or right->left manga.

PE: How to Scan and Adjust ImagesTutorial Time: How to scan and adjust images on Photoshop!
Hello everyone, welcome to this tutorial article of PE week!
well, you know, there is this youtube channel where there's lots of videos regaring tips, tricks and general advice for artists, and it is the best I've seen of the kind. But sadly, it is only in portuguese - hence why cinyu came up with the great idea of getting me to translate one of their videos!
I decided to pick up this one regarding scanning and adjusting images on photoshop, because that is one of the most basic, yet worst parts for many traditional artists. This tutorial is mostly for scanning black and white works, so it'll be more useful if you're working on manga/comic pages or inked art, but I hope it'll give you some ideas and help out in general on how scanning works.
I'll be translating the most important parts of the video, along with screenshots. Let's get started!
Things you'll need:
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!
