  • @lamon-davis Hello, Lamon Davis, my name is Ryan. I recently was browsing through the submissions group and stumbled upon your story “As the Clouds Break.” Bored, I decided to give it a read and it’s… a story. I guess I should at least leave a review since I put in the effort to go through the whole thing. Keep in mind, I have a philosophy. For…[Read more]

    @weebmetalorange Hi, sorry for the long overdue, but here’s my constructive feedback for Square One chapter 2

    Story plot so far:

    My first comment would be that it is very powerful chapter. It’s a straight 10/10. The intense atmosphere you have built throughout the sections of your story is great. It really draws me in and puts me in an u…[Read more]

    • Thank you so much! Unfortanately I won’t be posting anymore chapters in the stories area because I’ve submitted my entire story to Submissions and pretty confident that it will get published. I hope you buy a copy when it releases :). Also thanks, the Drunk Mai scene was one of my favorites in the book.

    No, it’s okay, @WeebmetalOrange. In fact, I’m glad you ranted on about the topic. So basically, I write different types of stories to show how much of a diverse and skilled writer I am. That sounds like a great idea! And, I can improve my writing speed plus my writing knowledge as a whole. But if I solely like a certain genre, would I write more…[Read more]

    For a portfolio based on light novels, try and do a lot of creative writing. My cousin once wanted to make a writing portfolio like you did. Although I make more of an art portfolio, my cousin came up with the idea of time trials. Basically what you do is you come up with a premise and without planning anything, you write to reach a goal page. For…[Read more]

    @byakugan-amr Congratulations Biako for the release of volume 1! I hope its everything you ever wanted out of it. I’m not far behind you though. I consider you my biggest rival.

  • Finally finished the cover! It may not be as good as @byakugan-amr Everlasting volume 1 cover, but I love how this came out…. actually I might make this a poster for myself. Front Cover

  • Thank you for your feedback so much! Although you say you’re not that good at giving criticism, you did well here!

    I think it was Strovist who reviewed the first chapter also and he mentioned an anime called Bakuman. I’ve never seen or heard of it until now and might look into it when I’m free.

    I don’t like to defend my story so I’m not…[Read more]

  • Finished Akari’s sweater, no strings or zipper because I like hoodies like that. Also put in the colors for the Mai’s hair and skin. Just got to finish her pink dress now! Almost 2/5ths of the way done with the cover 🙂 :)! Mai_is_in

    • Your illustrations look really nice, along with your colouring, too. I’d commission you to draw the protagonist of my novel

      • You can. if you want we can set up a video call to discuss the details of the characters a negotiate prices. I would be very honored to take care of the illustrations!

        • A video call? Why video? If you mean screen sharing, sure, but first I need to commission art of my characters and finish the novel, but I’m planning on probably making it into a visual novel instead, haha. Sorry about that

    @weebmetalorange I’m done reading Chapter 1, but I’ll write the formal review next time I got online. Anyway, your illustrations are great, light colors are relaxing and really fits the theme of the story.

    • I personally like the paint job on the skin

      • Thanks! It’s not as dark as I want it to be, but I’m just gonna keep it for now until I finish everybody elses skin on the cover. It acts a swatch library for all the gradiants I set up so color dropper can do it’s job. After that, I’m just gonna add a 40% opacity overlay to the skin to make it as dark as I want.

    • I really like the blending shade on the hair. It reminds me of oil painting or those kiddish water colour pencils. It’s really unique even for a digital art piece. I hope you keep this consistency if you ever go black and white:)

    • I was about to comment on how their foreheads (the angry two) might be too short for proportions, but then I realised that it could be a stylistic trademark. Great illustration:)

    @weebmetalorange Hi, here’s my constructive feedback for Square One chapter 1

    It’s nice to see someone trying to write a mangaka story. It really brought back memories when Bakuman first came out those years ago. I must commend you for writing a story of that genre when it is not as well explored as compared to more popular genres like Sci-fic o…[Read more]

    • Thank you so much! That feedback was actually really good compared to most of it. As for the concerns, I have actually planned out a lot in the future for this series already (5 Volumes ahead in-fact). Funny enough, All 4 of your pointers that you left are already planned for the story and more. Lastly, the reason I “give you a manga chapter feel”…[Read more]

      • Wow! You are a Mangaka for Dark Horse comics?! Awesome! That’s a huge rarity! No wonder your drawings appear to be very seasoned:) If you pour all your working experience into Square-One I’m sure it’ll turn out extremely well. Thanks for the second chapter. Will give another constructive feedback the next time I’m free!

    Working on one of the illustrations for my light novel, I ended up making a sketch of the main character, Akari, that I actually really liked. He looks like a shy guy… literally Me_AF_001
