    HI all! Aspiring Manga Creator here.

    Hi all!
    I'm new here. I'm just about to get back into art and I love working with
    sketches so after discovering it last week, I'm all about it!

    I have a question: Bleach Manga has White, Light Grey, Dark Grey and Black;
    Is this the norm? Should I create tones that have these extra two Grey values or should
    I just stick with bitmap (black/white)?

    I'm planning on getting an A3 scanner and using Ink with Nib Pens. Then using
    and creating Screen Tones in GIMP.

    Any advice or warstories are quite welcome!

    Thanks for having me here!


    John L.

    Hey bro, welcome to our madhouse xD
    Kubo's art is really top-notch (too bad his plot sucks hell) and its not necessarily the norm, feel free to use whatever you feel you like best.
    Ah you use gimp too? nice xD

    Btw what are your favorite mangas\manhwas and animes?

    Hi,
    I love Bleach. I am looking forward to some Naruto too. I'd pay to read Bleach which is
    the one of the few I'm familiar with. Too bad Borders closed shop.

    I wanted to simulate the atypical Manga creation process, that's why I asked about
    the levels of grey. I'll have to weather it out and see how it looks.

    I was initially considering colour. But b&w is so damned visceral!!

    Welcome on MH dude.
    Seems like you're another estimator of Kubo's art, and as you can see from my avatar, I'm like you.
    In any case, since you're an artist, I'll be looking forward to seeing your works on the Fanart Thread (obviously if you have done some).

    Hi Johnny-L(you kryptonian? ), I'm in a very Inside the Actors mood, so here my questions:

    • What is your favorite word?
    • What is your least favorite word?
    • What turns you on?
    • What turns you off?
    • What sound or noise do you love?
    • What sound or noise do you hate?
    • What is your favorite curse word?
    • What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
    • What profession would you not like to do?
    • If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

    Bleach huh, I wont comment on that since I know you like it ^^

    And about color, have you seen how the korean webtoons are made? The artists work as hell and its mostly done in a computer, but it looks awesome.

    As Charles already said, Tog and noblesse are a good example, but if you want a simpler coloring example look for Kubera's art.
    Specially the newer chapters, since in the first chapters the art isnt that great.
