    Re: Otaku Cafe Hangout

    It's a list of mangakas who have twitter accounts! (All in Japanese)
    http://wiki.15cc.net/index.php?Twitt...81%A8%E3%82%81
    There's not that much, but a lot of the CLAMP ones are there, Usata (Pyuu to Fuku), Murata (Eyeshield 21) and others I'm too lazy to identify atm.

    You can download manga raws here. For all things recent, if you mean magazine raws, it's either raw paradise or here. There are volume raws here too.

    Re: Otaku Cafe Hangout

    I have a little problem or rather a little question.

    I need to find an artist who makes manga paintings or drawings,but not for a manga.
    Just like an artist who makes oil paintings,only that the person i'm looking for has to do it in a manga style,if you know what i mean.

    So actually a manga artist,who is not running a manga,but publishing drawings/paintings/whatever in manga style.

    I don't even know if artists like this exist,so i thought this would be the best place to ask.

    Thanks in advance.

    Takashi Murakami originated Superflat, a style of art heavily influenced by manga/anime. He might be most famous for doing the cover of Graduation.

    Googz, I'm not too sure whether this will help but I have a feeling it will....maybe inspire you?

    Yasushi Suzuki (Graphic designer, game designer, illustrator and has recently ventured into the manga world! PIC. )

    - http://www.insertcredit.com/features/yasushisuzuki/

    - http://www.drmasterbooks.com/200701.html

    You'll probably find a lot more of Suzuki's work, portfolio and info from art books compared to the net imho.

    Shinichi Maruyama - this guy is simply amazing. I was introduced to his work last semester and I ended up writing an essay about his work too. I know it's not exactly what you needed or required but he reminds me of Kubo's artistic precision (techniques, creativity, abilities, etc)

    Gomen if this turns out to be a load bs for you.

    Kodansha Streams Videos of Manga Artists Drawing

    Makoto Raiku - Male mangaka, more typical shounen art style.
    Yoshitoki Ōima - Female mangaka, more shoujo/moe like art style.

    I saw one earlier on a NicoNicoDouga walk. I enjoyed staring at some mangaka drawing prweetttyyy pictures. But most importantly, it shows that pretty art doesn't just come from talent, it needs alot of hardwork too. Inking that accurately is really tiring, let's not even talk about how G-pen takes alot of control.

    I wonder are there non-photocopy blue in 3mm? I've got some 5mm lead, but it feels kinda thick (but then again I always draw in A5 and mangakas work in B4 to my memories). I just love how EVERY mangaka uses Mono rubber, personally I love them too. Cheap and good.

    @Googlez_kun
    Somehow, you came to mind when I saw these videos. I have a feeling you might like it.

    I wanted a totally girly sigature...

    Re: Otaku Cafe Hangout

    ^Maybe I should look there, they'll probably priced sky high. I got the exacxt same pack of lead for about 25% of the price in Hong Kong compared to UK. Hopefully I can find 0.3mm blue lead, the only problem with coloured lead is that they're much softer and break much easier. the 0.5mm colour lead of mine breaks as frequently as my 0.3mm normal lead...

    I assume this is a 'random' thread.

    I found out something called '理系男子', which seem to translate to 'Science men/boys'. Apparently it's a moe personification of elements...which includes Hydrogen, Helium, Calcium and Silver.

    I honestly have thought about whether there's moe personification of elements, considering there's OS (now we have an official Windows 7-tan voiced by mai waifu Mizuki Nana), nations/countries, star sign, train stations, blood type and etc. Somehow it didn't surprised that Japan actually marketed personification of elements, but I was expected female characters instead of bishounens.

    I'm pretty much a science student, it makes me facepalm that the people who created these bishounens have absolutely no idea what they're on about. They could have done a little more research right? Hetalia isn't famous just for its moe bishounens, without the research that Himaruya actually done, I doubt it would be this popular. Even Miracle*Train attempted to add some random facts. . They honestly could add a little more science into these elements/science CDs. Come on, just look in a typical science textbook, write a few notes down. Or ask some science teacher to help with the script.

    Okay, I do LOVE the seiyuu cast. OnoD as a genki boy is love.

    Japan you did it again. What's next? Personification of computer parts? Light bulbs? Bread? Chocolate?

    I wanted a totally girly sigature...

    Re: Otaku Cafe Hangout

    ^ the web with the elements ask me to log in whenever i tried to click on the stuff...

    that reminds me of some of the random stuff in fandom_secrets LJ. They have this elements personification (not drawings, just table with some text). If i try to remember what it says: The members of the noble gas are all snobbish rich men, etc... i might fail to remember the correctly, but yeah better that nothing

    No problem buddy!

    Yo Googz, have you heard or checked out Otogi Zoshi?
    It looks really good and I think it might help you...inspiration-wise maybe?
