In short:

I've had a story in my head for years and especially lately I've been working more and more on this story lately but since I'm not up to the level to draw it out myself nor write it down properly I made it in story board style:

part1:http://www.zshare.net/download/2408543832206b/ *redone txt pages 46-48*
part2:http://www.zshare.net/download/22948323f24ea0/
part3:http://www.zshare.net/download/harrytxt3-zip.html


So I hope you guys (and gals) can look through the rough sketches and don't mind the typos and grammar since for me it's really all about the story itself. PLease feel free to comment.

Here you get an idea of how the main character should look.....



The long version:

After years of doing cartoony stuff (I worked for Hallmark and Jamba, http://members.home.nl/d.boxtel/Heiny/heiny.html <-- what I normally do) I decided to do more the work where my heart lies: Comics/Manga. But I'm no where as good in this area as I am in making cartoony stuff http://members.home.nl/d.boxtel/Heiny/heiny.html <-- what I normally do. But I am practicing more and more to get to a level that the story deserves, but to be honest if I can find someone up to a level that the story deserves that would make me very happy since I doubt it will be me the next few years.....

This story is a non commercial project of mine just to tell the story I have in my mind. So I'm just looking for a podium to tell my story and where people honestly give their opinions and perhaps even find people who want to get involved...... I hope to have found it here, or else I would be very glad if people know where this would be apreciated....

This story will mostly contain all the things I like about comics and Manga and hope to break many of the (to me anoying) cliche's you see coming back time after time..... So many tributes can be found in the story based on stuff found in battle chasers, bleach, naruto, Bone etc etc..... Although not too obvious I hope.....

Im already writing the script of future issues, almost done with issue 12.....(this x48 pages story).... And don't expect to be done at issue 25.....

Thanks, :)

The sketches in the story are alot rougher so be prepared ;)...... Part one is the worst at that, it's really rough(also like 3/4 years old)

I think this is belong there http://mangahelpers.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=120 rather than here...

anyway the art isn't that bad.. u could improve by using photoshop to made the outline a bit clearer and look less like stretches...

the chapter a bit long.... u could break it down a bit.. but all first chapter of a manga serie usually longer than normal .. so i guess u is fine..

from what i read of part one.. my reaction is like wow.. wow... It really good.. and u must have a lot of time and patience to do all of this by yourself...

Your story remind me of dragon quest... anyway i comment more as i read along.. :kkthumbs.... ps i will try to tell others of this...

Like I said the art isn't the subject here, but for me it's not good enough, also some had trouble reading trough these relative lesser drawings so I like to warn people in advance... Although part 2 and 3 are better then 1.......

The chapters will all be 48 pages and I will try to avoid cliffhangers.... I just like to tell more complete parts and not tease people.... It helps me avoid too long fights and concentrate more on the story and characters themselves.... So relative more text and less action then the "average" manga/superherocomic... But every issue will contain action though.....

BTW...Just started writing the script for the storyboard of part 13...... ;D
