Alright, so I'm almost done with the Sailor Moon x Madoka crosover stuff. I just need to do Mercury's Soul Gem/Grief Seed stuff and do a few little thing so that the lovely ~SPDUDE18
can write some poems based on the crossover stuff I've made. Sadly I'm giving up on creating Small Lady's Witch form, mainly because I lack ideas other than Black Lady.
But, what else am I going to do in the future? Well, I've begun making something I call "The Evolution of Sailor Moon". Sailor Moon has had a ton of early concept art and there's also the finished Sailor Moons. I've wanted to basicly create a gif, which shows all of Sailor Moon's incarnations, and I'm happy to say that I've already done some good progress with it! All sketches are finished, and the first Prototype is almost finished! ^_^ I can't wait to have it ready to be shown to everyone!
There's something else I've also gotten very interested in; the International Shounen Jump Comic Contest. Shounen Jump (in case you didn't know) is the Japanese magazine which publishes comics aimed for young boys, and has published some of the most well known series in history, such as One Piece, Naruto, Bleach and Dragonball. They're having an international contest where you can submit your unpublished comic for them in English, and hope to win the contest for about 4000€ (500 000 yen). And if you're lucky and comic is the most popular out of the three winners, an additional 4000€ will be given. Also all of the three winners (each chosen by language) will be published in some of the magazines and it looks like, that if your comic was good enough, some studio might get interested in making a series based on it ("All rights including the publication rights, the screening stage rights, adaptation to animation or live action video of the submitted works shall belong to Shueisha")
So yes, I'm interested in the contest. The deadline is October 1st, so I'm pretty sure I could come up with a 31-page one shot by then. In fact, I do have a story idea which could easily be turned into a one shot. There's just a few things which are very... discouraging. For starters, I should send my one shot in English (because I don't know Japanese well enough to try it). But you do realize what that means? I'd be going against all the other amazing artists from North America, Australia and Europe. It's a lot of people who're very talented and passionate, so just knowing that makes me feel like I have no chances of winning. The other thing is that I'm not a good artists. I mean, I'm not horrible, but there's certainly better artists out there, who will enter the contest. The reason why that matters is that in this contest, art skills will matter more than the story, unless you come up with something like Attack on Titan and blow people's minds away. But the one shot I have in my head isn't that good. So indeed, I have no chances of winning at all (unless everyone else who enter have really uninteresting stories and mediocre art, but assuming that is just silly).
Still, I kind of want to enter. Because even when I won't win, if the voting is done online, then if my one shot managed to get to the finalists at the very least, people could read it, and learn of my existence. And after the contest, I could probably post the oneshot here or MangaMagazine.net or some other site. So in the end, the one shot won't hurt me at all? I don't know, I guess I'm just rambling at this point
Point is, I might post some sketches in the following month or two, and might ask for feedback on this. But please, don't be surprised if I become very unactive until October 1st. COMMISSION INFO
