I'd like to make a note of various episodes at the time of making Manga "Engineer!" Coming soon.
This article is what I felt about Manga industry before starting production.
I looked into manga industry after a long absence
I started drawing manga around 9 years old. 16 years old, I posted my work on "Shonen Jump", but I was defeated. Although I continued to draw manga afterwards, I was gradually away from manga.
I did a lot of work. Call centers, Delivery drivers, Insurance sales etc. At one time, suddenly I looked into manga industry after a long absence
Since the Internet has developed, I certainly thought that there would be many digital unique manga that I had never had before, but ...?!
Digital Manga is underdeveloped?
Huh? …black and white manga? ... Is not it a color manga? Even though I am reading with digital devices!
Certainly, the mainstream of manga is still "paper". Digitally readers are now a minority.Therefore, there are many manga which presupposed to print on paper. Therefore, I think that there are many black and white manga.
There is also color digital manga, but there are few expressions unique to digital. For the most part, just put a color on manga made of black and white.
There are a few moving comics. But mostly Just edited manga drawn in analog to move. Therefore, there are few expressions unique to digital. Moreover, most of it is black and white.
Anyway, I think that "Digital manga is underdeveloped" at present.
I want to make manga with many expressions unique to digital
So, my manga "Engineer!" Aims to make it unique to digital works.
But it was full of things I did not understand. It is difficult to use Photoshop, select a personal computer, and operate a pen tablet .... Or it is still a day of trial and error.
There are various manga posting sites, but where and how can I post? How can I publish e-books on Kindle, iBooks Store, Google Play, etc.? How can I make money with digital manga? There are also such trial and error.
I would like to post trial and error content. I think that it would be helpful for people who want to make manga in digital.
I hope to write about the contents of my manga the next making, so please have a look.
