Preview: Erin Kiraly

Lyrics from “Darna” by Uchuusentai NOIZ~ ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚~♥

Some of you have probably guessed that my new webcomic will be featuring the characters I sketched last June. ヽ(≧∇≦)ノ I’ve finally decided on a name for her, so I’d like you to meet Erin Kiraly (and carrot?! ━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━)!

Sorry, this is just a sneak peek for now… ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ I need to finish a few pages before I launch this on site. ♥

Preview: New WebManga

I had promised my new editor that I would post sneak peaks of the pages I’m working on… I’m still shy about posting the title of this new manga, but we’ll see in the coming days…~ Σ(-`Д´-ノ;)ノ

work in progress 2012.08.20 - jeremy chan

So far so good! ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚ I’m still not done penciling the details of some of the panels, but page one is looking satisfactory already.

work in progress 2012.08.20 - jeremy chan and erin kiraly

Page two looks ok too, but the first panel of this page is giving me a lot of trouble with the perspectives. Argh… o(~>.<)o if I could just draw the characters all day long, this would be finished a lot faster! (,,#゚Д゚)

I’m glad I was able to settle on the names though… and the uniform too! Designing girl’s uniforms are crazy challenging! ( ´ω`)

So, what do you think Misaki-chan? Does it look shoujo enough? (。-ω-)☆

work in progress 2012.08.20 - chibi jeremy

Oh, and I’m just going to leave this close up of the chibi panel here… just ‘coz~ ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

I’m penciling page 3 now and I have cover ideas for the first and second chapter. This manga is flowing much easier for some reason, but designing the panels just… confuses me. (シ_ _)シ I don’t know how shoujo mangakas do this, haha… it’s uncharted territory!

Anyway, back to work before Editor-san catches me slacking off! ヽ(・ω・ゞ)

Soul Dice: Lan

Last Thursday, I met up with Renka-chan, author and artist of Soul Dice. We’ve been friends for a while and she’s given me two sketches of Rei while I have failed miserably in giving her anything. So the night before our lunch, I decided to at least sketch her something… anything! 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。

I somehow ended up deciding not to sleep so that I could ink and color this too… And what the heck? Lan looks like Saber from Fate/Stay Night! ━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━

Well, I think Renka-chan liked it? (;*△*;) And that’s the important thing for me~ This was fairly small so that she can bring it with her to China if she’d like. ☆ミ(o*・ω・)ノ

Colors died thanks to my scanner… But oh well, I tried! ( ´△`) My shadow and lighting… why have you become nonexistent as soon as sleep is deprived? ((o(;△;)o))

Ah well… back to drawing I go! 〆(・∀・@)

A.illusions’ and Karma’s First Review

I gotta admit, after I saw that this guy was reviewing Oh No! Manga titles, I couldn’t wait to see what he would say about my book. (*ノ・ω・)

I’ve been getting a lot of mixed feedback with this book. Some people like A.illusions better while others like Benedict here prefer Karma. (,,#゚Д゚) I don’t think I can draw both series at the same time, but ahaha… what to do… o(~>.<)o

Thanks for the feedback, sir! And in case you want to see A.I.? Most of our “operations” are in private, but we’ve recently set up a blog for public viewing. ヽ(≧∇≦)ノ

Oh No! Manga Cosplay Camp Aftermath

This post is long overdue, but even if I’m still having chills and fever, I thought I might as well start blogging about Cosplay Camp. (*≧▽≦)ノシ))

To be honest, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. With the exception of having cosplayers bringing our characters to life, everything else was played by ear. For one thing, I didn’t know that we fellow artists/contributors would be the judges for the art contest. It was extremely difficult to judge 70 entries (that was supposed to be only 50 (シ_ _)シ), but we somehow managed to work it out with a little mathematics.

So kids, be sure to pay attention in math class. I know I found it to be very useful that day~
