I've noticed that recently you've been posting comments in Discussions that go against our guidelines, such as comments that include swearing, inappropriate topics/topics unrelated to My Hero Academia and information about your personal life (prohibited by rules 1, 2 and 9 respectively). I'd like to ask you to refrain from continuing to do this, since you will end up blocked from the wiki for a time if you do continue.
You're welcome, and I ment it as a joke. What i'm saying is that you can't exactly generate cheese balls from your fingertips, Therefore you can't do anything you want. Sorry if i offended you in any way. Have a good day. <3
Now, you and I both understand the amount of effort and dedication it takes, right? I know you do, because you're prepared. It's great to see other aspiring mangakas around here :)
I've already stated my Manga series. I've been planning all the characters and story for months, and now I'm making it a reality. I'm planning on making my own website and posting the chapters on the, with ads. It helps as an easy way to get your work read when you're just starting out.n
If you need help with creating a story and characters, I'm the guy you can talk to.
Here's My way of creating a character from scratch:
Start with a sketches of what you have in your mind. Here's an example:
I want an earnest, calm but determined character...Hmm. I'll start with the clothes i think that type of person would wear...blah blah go on from there. Eye's, how they'd wear their hair, and waht shoes they'd wear. Basics...
Now that you've done a sketch, creating the actual personality of the character is a lot easier now. Here's a template i HIGHLY reccommend using:
With that template, fill it in with what kind of character you want to create.
Here's an example:
Wants: To become the greatest hero and save people with a smile
Needs: A mentor to guide him with training, a role model
Modivation: To get better with his quirk and rise above his weakness.
Weakness: He goes over the top sometimes and hurts himself a lot because of that.
There you go! I hope this helps, as you mentioned you have trouble with the story aspect of creating manga...
Needn any specific tips? Message me whenever! Thanks and remember to go beyond, PLUS ULTRA!! :)
I just created a Character that revolves around Not knowing what they want, Not knowing what they need, Not knowing their motivation and Not knowing their weakness/weaknesses. I wanted the whole plot to be centred around them and finding out these things (it's meant to be a kinda creepy manga) but I think I kinda just screwed myself over. heheheh..... 0-0 what have I done.
So the journey of the story is to find out about themself? Interesting.
You're writing a Senien Manga, same as me. So, try focusing on the world building a little more. What kind of world do they live in? Is it the present, Modern city or something? The past, the future even?
An example could be, your character lives in a dystopian city, desolate and almost destroyed. It could be that they're just trying to make living when something out-of-the-ordinary happens.
My tip is "If you're stuck on ideas for a story, think of a 'what if?' scenario, and build it off there."
What if the city was ... uh, invaded by aliens...? Haha, ok better example...What if you character met something or someone that changed their life? What kind of thing would most surprise the character, and the reader?
Think about that sort of thing, and in no time your creative juices will overflow with ideas! :D
The story is set in modern day (i.e. 2019, 2020) In America. The only differrence from actual reality is that a new race/species is intergrating amongst humans; The Weather Men. The term Men is used loosely as these people have no specific gender but sometimes choose to present themselves as one gender. They are the weather personified, lightning, rain, sunshine, clouds, etc. They started arriving in 2012, specifically the day of the suposed apocalypse and now it is suggested that almost 1% of the worlds population is made up of these Weather Men.
However, the 17th of June, 1929, was the date that the first of these people actually arrived, in one of the most deadly storms of the century, in a ball of lightning. There has never been another one like him. He was found and shipped off to a nearby secret facility, studied and kept there. Until ten years later when the second world war broke out. The facility was abandoned and he was left there.
i have a preface written out already and I'll post it on the discussions page to see what people think. I hope you'll have a read of it.
That is...so facinating! Wow I haven't heard of such an idea before...That already sounds great!
So, are the Weather Men ALL antagonists? May I suggest one of them being friendly, or perhaps they're all different. Some are good, kind-hearted, some are a bit off, and some are plain evil. That could amount to some interesting interactions between them and the main character(s).
Not all of them are antagonists, just some of them, The kind of point with lindsey (the main Weather man's name/the ball lightning one) is that we don't know if he's actually the bad guy, and I was thinking that he was only going to be a vessel for the real antagonist, and that slowly Lindsey's real intentions for coming to the protagonist was because he was trying to escape.
That's good then.
Something to think about when world building is how the appearance of the weather men effected society. Like, did it effect it in a good way or possibly set society back a few steps, and they had to deal with it.
But yeah this story is coming along GREAT! I'm pumped to see how you buid upon the world, characters and narative.
One question...How will you start publishing the chapters? My personal plan with my series is to post them on my own website with ads, to gain revenue. Give the chapters for free on the day they come out, then price them afterwards. People can subscribe to get free chapters weekly/monthly or something. So, what's your plan? I wanna be able to read this someday.
My plan was to get the preface done and chapter 1 started. I quite probably will post them on Deviant Art and in a youtube video with a voice over. I always draw my panels on paper first and then take a photo and trace over that in Krita. All my colouring is done through MediBang Pro. I'm not sure how I will properly publish it but I was thinking of trying to make a video (speed paint of the characters, with voice over of the preface and chapter 1 as well as comments) and possibly an animatic of the preface with voice over. But of course the manga comes first. If you have any ideas on how you think I could publish it once the preface is done I'd love to hear it.
