Magan's zombies aren't typical lumbering undead they are more mummy-like with lots of bandages and strong features. His captain is the one who looks like Zabuza with all the bandages over his face and no eyebrows. I'll work out a name later, right now I'll just call him captain.
Magan's LandingCollapse )
Let's try to get something going on this project.
Let me know what you've got.

Has anyone considered the manga over the summer?
Maybe we should work on it or something.
I got a lot more ideas for the villains.

Okay so I've been reading a lot of Naruto lately and I think the villain should look like Zabuza. No eyebrows, lots of bandages, but much older with longer white hair.

Are we planning to get together over the summer at all? Let me know what you guys decide on that. And keep up your work or we'll never get this thing done. I'll be writing a script for chapter three and I'll do an outline for chapter four.

Did you guys learn anything at the Manga Publishing panel at Momocon?

Another idea
I've been thinking that in order to establish Magan as an evil character he has to kill somebody important. I think Gilda would be the best victim. Kyrene can see her get killed and get angry and realize her powers or something. You guys can hash this out later, I just thought it would add depth to Magan and Kyrene's characters.
Remember the "why'd the chicken cross the road" joke we discussed way back at the beginning of this whole thing? No, well that's okay. See Magan happens upon the farm where Gilda and Kyrene are and he can show his chaotic nature by making the joke, "Why'd the chicken cross the road" then he blasts Gilda and all her chickens run to the other side of the road, and he's all "that's why! mwahaha! I'm so fucking evil!"
What do you guys think?

ATTENTION! PAY ATTENTION TO ME! [/starved]
I have founde a choice paper!
Befoer hitting-up CVS for print paper, I thought I'd head over to FEDEXKINKO and see what they had to offer. Surely enough, I found a paper that's slightly lighter/less dense than card-stock. And its name is:
"W-90"
Surely enough, when I got back to the dorm, I compared it w/ my special manga paper; lo and behold, they are nigh identical!!1! I then made hast to test it w/ some illustration (finishing@aboot 2:45AM) to delightful results! I haven't tried blacking-in any areas yet (though I will shortly), but it is surely a fine paper for inking! For anyone that's interested it's:
One 8.5x11 Sheet = (+/-)12 cents
40 sheets went for $5.18. I will bring it tomorrow and let ye judge for yourselves! ^_^

If anyone's free Monday afternoon...
A few of us are going to meet at the Honors House Monday (2ish to 3ish, I believe?) to touch base, look at artwork, etc...

Also, if anyone wants to bring paper (ingridmb_gt, I loved that paper you brought tonight ^_^) for ink testing, feel free to do so.

Paper?
Umm, what were the dimensions we decided upon and what kind of paper were we going to use? Can anyone bring a sample of said paper Thursday? I'd really like to have a finished page sometime in the near future to hand over to shinpishugisha1 or whoever wants to do touch-up work and text.

Also, I'm not sure how workable/pheasable (sp?) this is, but, would anyone be interested in an all-day or all-nighter manga workshop?

Scenery stuff

And finally a couple to give a proper sense of scale compared to a person.

Hey everyone! I'm just making a post to see if we're all still out there...

This week, mugiwara_boushi and I have agreed to do at least one page of art, each-- I'm working on it! I think the first page will have the flashback scene on it... Woo hoo!

hmm?
So, is everyone keeping busy? We need to have stuff ready or be ready to work on for Thursday, 'cause we've slacking as a group. Correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently only one person showed up last Tuesday (sorry Patrick ^_^;;)? But I, err, shouldn't be pointing the finger (as I wasn't there either X_X). I just really want to get the proverbial ball rolling and start working on art as soon as possible. ^_^

So, chapter 3 group (I'm lookin' at you [Unknown LJ tag] & [Unknown LJ tag] (...and [Unknown LJ tag], I think?)), how is chapter 3 coming along? Anything written or developed? I'm not nagging or nothing, I'm just really curious.

So, lookin' forward to Thursday! Have fun, folks!

Current Mood: okay

before i start sketches of the characters, i need to know a little more about them. how old do they look, what nationality do they seem to be. scars, tattoos, anything you can think of that might be identifying marks. oh, another thing, what about a name for the paladin in chapter2?

If you've just found the site, you're going to have to create a livejournal to see anything we've written on here. Once you create a livejournal (easy to do), add uabmp, uabanime, and iore to your friends list. You'll figure it out.

Otherwise, all this stuff is friends-locked, which means that only people that are in the community can read the things we post in here. If you have any problems, post something with your problem and your e-mail address in my livejournal iore.

So... ^~^
How're all the proposals (written or drawn or both; as long as you put effort into it) for Thursday coming? Anyone devloping something unrelated to the band-geek/D&D idea?

Also, there's been talking of thinking of possibly considering choosing a different meeting time/location for future meetings (repeat: we're still on for this Thursday (11/4/04)@ Honor's house upstair room after Anime Club meeting)...Any particular time/place that anyone really, really wants to meet at? There's been a great suggestion for the study room over at Rast so far (spacious, a few big tables, rather nice view). Nothing definite so far, 'cause Thursdays works for everyone, but a change of scenery couldn't hurt, ne?

Current Mood: bouncy
