Hi, I've been managing Urakai-Scan's Gintama scanlations and I want to vouch for one of my members, spades. He has released only 2 HQ-MQ "solo" works for now but he has been helping us with cleaning,...
December 15, 2007 11:35 AM
woo hoo, moar new Gintama! Looks like one of the newest arcs! =D
My opinion is the same as ttx- redraw after denoising because this way, what you see is what you get...denoising can be too...
December 07, 2007 07:30 PM
:P Thanks for the RAWs. I'll wait for a scanlation to enjoy the whole thing.XD
Always suspected it was shota-con but its just too funny that I don't care :nuts
Pretty creative manga!
December 07, 2007 06:17 AM
Thanks for offering to beta test it.
@programmers - there's no need to hand code it or anything - if you're familiar with Front Page / Dreamweaver I don't think it will be hard. A lot of it...

[EDIT] Formerly "Auto-Scanlation" - Credits to Crayola for the name change. Sorry if the first title had been misleading.

Hi Fxu, you really made a tute, lol. My comment is about the title. I understand "PS shortcuts" but the subtitle made me do a double take. I suggest, PS shortcuts for Speedcleaning - something like...
November 23, 2007 01:53 PM
Wahahaha, that's a good one. The newbie reading this thread will probably scream Omigosh, but the person who's been redrawing for a while will be intrigued by the full gamut of tools introduced...
November 22, 2007 01:29 PM
XDD...sorry my bad then, I thought you were being serious. [Because I met some people who get upset and over-sensitive after they get critted...too bad for me if I'm the one QC'ing them... :scry...

Relax Fxu, no one wants to rape your ass...:XXX
Our time is too important to be used to rape you. :P ( JUST JOKING)
Actually, you misunderstood what is constructive feedback. That's when we...
November 21, 2007 11:54 AM
WHA---WOW! Awesome. I should really check out Shannaro's works! <---Hasn't read Naruto for eons. I've never seen this tute before, it's going to be really helpful for me. :DD Thanks spades 11111
November 21, 2007 08:25 AM
Yes, I agree. It's always better to brush away all the words with a white brush first, taking care to keep as much of the original art as possible. Normally, after doing that, I would "sketch" what I...
November 20, 2007 06:08 AM
Well okay, I guess we're starting to see two different ways of redrawing/drawing. Fxu's way is more suited to original art/ amateur manga creation rather than to preserve the mangaka's art.
November 19, 2007 05:20 AM
Well...good luck! We might end up in the same group some other time, who knows. :P But for the record I am a chin-> eng translator. As for J-> eng, you might even have better luck asking the Vato,...
November 18, 2007 11:16 AM
Man, the first thing I felt when I saw that was...I can't wait to typeset this baby! Wow!
I'll take a closer look tomorrow, but I have to commend you for the job you did on the left side of Frame...
November 18, 2007 10:42 AM
Wow!!! Thumbs up!! HQ redrawing in action! :woo
Yeah, I have heard of this way of overlaying the greytones on another layer, for scanlating, or for home-made manga... But seriously, did you redraw...
November 16, 2007 06:21 AM
Cool! Thanks for the super tips on making a repeating texture. I'm sorry for the mistake in that image...( lame excuse coming :P) Anyway, I'm really glad you took the time point that out!
November 09, 2007 06:47 PM
Hey hey Hakai, lighten up! You need to read a kick-ASS comedy that I just read called "Tsumikabatsu" XD
Ass much ass I can say this without soudning like an Asshole, I can't comment on your...
November 09, 2007 04:15 AM
Yeah, what I like about Gintama is that even if it has stupid gags, I always find there is more meaning and culture to it...some chps...like the early ones about the young Otose and the Fireworks...
November 08, 2007 05:34 AM
Ooops... looks like this thread took an awkward turn. XD;;
@Hakai: I didn't expect Vato's outburst, but since he has 20 times more knowledge than me in scanlation, and he gave a detailed...
November 07, 2007 06:16 PM
A rose stuck in the ass?!!?...It was as funny as hell, great plot, :kukuku
From the name of the mangaka, I think is a guy huh?
I wonder who the target audience for this series is...boys or...

OTOH...if you would like to hone your...

This guide is a simplified version of Ookla's scan guide. The only difference is that two pages are scanned at once, rather than one.
Ookla only scanned one page at a time as he did not debind his...

I did this because our first few typesetted Gintamas looked wierd when we used the same fonts as our other series, Kekkaishi. Anime Ace was used for...

Yeah I have to agree that you need to do a lot more cleaning, lol.
About typesetting, I can offer the following advice, which I think is the general consensus among scanlators. To get more...

Your love for Gintama is out of this world!! lol. But that's awesome to see so much love. Thanks for the links~
September 14, 2007 12:59 PM
hmm...I could think of a tip, which is about noise.
First you should denoise the LQ RAW with a denoiser like Neat Image, there is a good tutorial written by Yoniekai here at MH Academy. Denoising...
September 14, 2007 12:42 PM

Well, I haven't tried this technique before, but how to get rid of them is described in the Toriyama's World guide. Though you might have already...
September 14, 2007 12:35 PM
Gosh, I thought the same thing as rebel when I saw it, it looks pretty darn good for an LQ RAW. As for the "splotchy" part, er...if it was me I would try to mask that part off and then darken the...
