I'm starting a new manga. It will be a short story of roughly 30 or so pages. If you haven't seen it yet, it's called The Trespasser --> roxyroo.deviantart.com/art/The… . It's based on a dream I had in January, so it's rather interesting. Also, if you like parkour ... I dream about parkour a lot.

I decided I need to get my juices flowing again for making manga.  I haven't really done anything in... way too long. When The Glass River was published, I just sort of quit drawing for a while. I guess I was exhausted, but more so, the longer the book was out, the more clear it became that all my work went unrewarded.  Even the Kickstarter I did after I left my publisher was unsuccessful. What did I do wrong? Plenty.  I could list the reason I have figured out, but there's no point. I know how to do it better in the future. I'm starting fresh, with a new story. A short one. 

More pages will be uploaded this week. If you don't want to wait, you can read all the current pages on MangaMagazine.net, since I post there first. www.mangamagazine.net/manga-an…

Pencil, paper. Obviously.  I like to use ordinary computer paper, it's handy and white.  It's also less expensive than "drawing art paper" blah blah blah.  Whatever you do, don't start tracing stuff. You don't learn by tracing. Pick something to draw and draw it again and again from different angles. It doesn't have to be perfect lines. Make it loose, sketchy. Try to get the "form" by simplifying whatever you pick into simple shapes.  For example, if you pick a coke can; it's two lines and a circle, your basic cylinder. Once you got the form down, then you can start doing shadows and highlights, but worry about the shapes first.

That's my best advice I can give. Draw anything and everything. A lot. Draw all the time and you'll get better in no time. :D
