“Baggage” Cover

Here’s a new pic! πŸ™‚

Well, this is just the cover page for my comic, “Baggage” that I did about a year ago for the 2013 Silent Manga competition…
Wow, an actual W.i.p. that I completed! Haha. The unfinished version is here. As you can see, it’s dated last year… lols…

By the way, I’m trying to get better in my writing too; been reading books, listening to podcasts about writing (for comics, and in general), and the like. I wonder if creators with long stories ever write (not just outline) out their whole story before beginning to draw it? Inquiring minds (namely me) want to know…

In random news, I went to a TLC concert recently. It was rather cool. (Too bad I never got to see them perform with Left Eye long ago… sigh.) I couldn’t exactly sing to all of their songs though. XD (Not because I didn’t know them… but after becoming a disciple… you know…)

Which brings me to my other thought/conundrum… I can’t finish as many stories that I started before [I got baptized] ‘as planned’, since they are either: 1.) Too perverted/dirty, or too otherwise promoting something trifling. If there is some way I can twist it around where it doesn’t promote as trifling behavior, then I will try and change the story a bit, but… there are certain ones which are blatantly obvious that I couldn’t finish in good conscience.

For example, I made a Gohan and Videl fic long ago which shall not be named… but I cannot finish that in good conscience… sorry! (I was thinking, if I’m married, would it be so bad to think the thoughts? But that is basically inviting other unmarried people too to think these thoughts, and arghhh, it’s about another “person” anyway, and…! Too complicated.)
I am trying to find a way to change/write “Trunks’ Date” a bit where it won’t be so full of perverted stuff (the original idea wasn’t SO bad, but it did include some… eh… “suggestive” scenes that I don’t want to draw out now). So… we’ll see where that goes…!

Read my comic, ‘Baggage’!!

Hey, guys! Be sure to check out my comic (contest) entry, called “Baggage”! (And be sure to “like” it if you actually do like it, lol!)
http://comic.manga-audition.com/entries/smiley-by-rejena-smiley/?fb_action_ids=654472969456&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=timeline_og&action_object_map=%7B%22654472969456%22%3A452805258171606%7D&action_type_map=%7B%22654472969456%22%3A%22og.likes%22%7D&action_ref_map=%5B%5D

I didn’t win the competition, but it’s still nice to be able to see all of the entries on their website…! β™₯ Hope you enjoy it! Btw, it’s a “silent comic”, so… no dialogue!! xDD

P.S.- I like how they titled it “Smiley”… lol… (that’s my last name, but not the story’s title xDDD)

Finally done with my submission!!

PHEW! I’m finally done submitting my comic for the contest I was entering in Japan… I hope it went through okay… I hope they like it!! And well… if they don’t, at least I can say that I tried my best… But I will keep hoping/praying that they do, LOL. Anywho, that has been my life for the past couple of months! The story is called “Baggage”, btw… We’ll see what comes of it (if anything).

I’m thinking of submitting the old version of the prelude… but it’s not really ‘finished’, which is why I was redoing/redrawing it in the first place. But… I think it’s kind of cool to see ‘old art’ (as long as there are no spoilers, lol). And well… this really wouldn’t be spoilers, would it? I might change some things… the layout, maybe bits of the story I didn’t like; but in that case, maybe it’s best to just wait until I give you the new version first…?

For example, here’s the ‘character page’, lol:

But I’m not sure yet. I don’t want me releasing the old pages fizzling out my desire to redraw them!… We’ll see.

In other news, I’ve downloaded a video game called “Silver” from Gog.com. (They sell lots of old games; it’s pretty cool.) I have yet to play it since I’d been doing that comic all along, orz… but now, it’s on like Donkey Kong! :3 lol

Baggage cover sketch…! Plus… other stuff…/vague

Here’s a sketch for the cover of “Baggage” (but I’m not submitting the cover for the contest; it’s just for my personal purposes, LOL.) I’ll have to finish it after I finish and submit the other pages though >< Also, I suck, and didn’t realize that they wanted it to read right-to-left (preferably), hahaha… >_<; So, there goes me fixing things so it looks right the other way around too… doi. (Should have known that though.) Plus, I have to fix the page dimensions and all of that too, lol. Oy. Anywhoo, I had a reallly random but super-kewl dream that I hope I can make into a comic one day! (Hopefully, not a super-long one… but movie-long sized.) Have to do some, er… tweaking though, so that it makes sense (and doesn’t cross illegal boundaries XD).

In other news…

I cannot stop watching this video/listening to this song.


Yup, I’m a total dork. XD

P.S. Go watch Wreck-It Ralph! πŸ˜› (and if you have already, watch it again, lol) πŸ™‚
G’night!

Contest entries + What I’ve been working on…

Baggage--pencilpre

Hola! So, for the past two months, I’ve been working on this manga contest entry… It’s almost due, so I’m kind of in the crunch time now, and need to get it done! It’s about 16 pages, plus the ‘cover’ (but I don’t think submitting the cover is necessary… at least I hope not, rofls). So, I’m sorry that I haven’t posted anything (much) worthwhile in the past month and a half-ish. Stuff always seems to go on, eh… Hopefully I can give you some comics/pics that I can actually post after this! Here’s a preview of a page I’m working on. Still need to do backgrounds and shading and stuff on it though, lol. If I lose, I’ll be sure to show you the comic though, lol. (But wish me good luck, please!) πŸ™‚
