Mangaworkshop Collab, Page 1
(Text copied and pasted from my art blog, sorry about that, its all for the sake of context!)
When I was in college I visited mangaworkshop.net pretty frequently, and over the years I've become a mod there, trying to help out kids with their art and whatnot. I am not so active in that community anymore but from time to time I try to stay on top of things.
Anyways to the point, one of the activities they tend to do over there is a Collaborative Manga. What it is its one artist starts drawing a story (lets say 3 pages) and the next artist picks off where the last guy left off, does the next few pages and so on and so forth, giving you a pretty interesting mix of art, stories, plot twists and general nonsense.
They have reached their fourth iteration of this activity and I decided I should help them out with the first few pages, I don't know how many I'll do but for me is a good experiment to see how much I can get done in a limited time frame. Page one is finished and it took about 3 hours total.
