New one-shot in the works
And I'm working on a new one-shot at the moment.
The theme this time is heroism and what that really means.
Trying to get in with some publishers, so I'm planning to submit this to Saturday-AM's 'Summer of Manga' competition (if I can get it done on time), but it'd be good to enter it into the MCPO contest as well.
Saturday-AM have an absolutely crippling 22-page limit; combining that with my baffling inability to write shorter scripts and the fact that I'm limiting the number of panels per page that I draw to stop them getting as cluttered as they used to means that there's quite a lot that I'm unhappy about with the storyboard and the script.
But I'm using this to practice drawing new things in new settings, and I've especially been working on page composition and the flow of the pages as a whole, rather than as a sequence of disconnected panels.
I'd really love some feedback when it's (eventually) done, but in the meantime, here are some character designs for the one-shot!
