#2!! eManga(Eletronic Manga)Know-How "About Plot"


Hi!!

I'm Hirogecka of WizComic creator/PR!


Hokkaido is getting colder day by day.
How are you all been?

Hopefully you didn't eat too much during holidays??


By the way, let's talk about Manga again today!


Directly saying, the important things in drawing Manga!

Let me talk about "Plot", "Scenario" and "Names"!


...Having said that, everyone has your own way.
There is no right or wrong.

I hope you understand it!!


Couple days back, I was talking with my friend who wants to be a Manga creator.
Then we came to talk about "what's plot".


Hmmm, that's make sense.
I haven't heard or eaten it til I was in Junior High.


Then, what's plot!



Plot is summary of a story.
Plot summarizes import events in the story.


You need a sheet of paper and a pen.
Many use smartphone Memo, recently.

Smartphone is always by your bedside and it's easy to input!
Time really changes...


Well then, let's take Momotoro's story as an example.



There were an old man and woman.↓


An old woman was doing laudry in the river and huge peach came down the river.↓


When an old man come home and they cut the peach,

a boy comes out from inside the peach.↓


The boy has grown to be healthy and strong, then he goes to bust devils...



Like this way, keep writing rough progress of the story.
However, I've been asked questions as such...


"How do write stories?"



Hmmmmm, honestly speaking, I had no answer for this!
Because, when I was writing Manga at time,
I was building everything based on what was in my head!


But only doing so, I'm not sure myself if I had control of all stories.
So, I can give only one answer.

When something comes to your mind, write it down.


You can't solve everything in your head.

Let's try!


It can be as simple as one line or two.

For an example,


A was dead drunk at a bar, since shopkeeper wanted to close the shop,
he aggresively woke him up and forcibly tried all means to get him to go home.


Like this way, it can be simple and short, scribbling anything is totally all right.
You can think and expand contents later.


Write the beginning of the story that leads to punch line at the end.
Thinking the progress is also good.
I often take this manner.

Did you understand about Plot?
Theme is common, but hopefully it'll be good help writing your Manga!



WizComic is looking for creators who can write Manga for overseas!
If you're interested, contact us!!

The next story is about scenario!
See you in the next story!!

Playing around with "WizComic", eManga App on the way!

Happy Holiday, everybody!!


Hi! I'm Hirogecka of WizComic creator/PR!
How have you all been?


I...as a result of spending hard days trying to finish drafts within this year,
was slightly feverish on 2nd and 3rd, and was totally down on the 3rd day...(LOL)


Well today, I as creator myself!
Going to try to play around with the App!!


First, let me show you the downloaded screen...


By the way, "Magical Spice" and "The Epic" are only ones
which have all 5 episodes and currently distributed.


Well, let me go back to the Top Page.

Ooooops, I'm slightly in the picture...

I thought of making Screen Shot in the beginning,

but I couldn't find the setting for Screen Shot...LOL
Maybe it was different from my SmartPhone I usually use.

It's acceptable since whole face is not there...
I'm exposing myself with uncool fluffy snowsuit...


I really wish I could have you all touch the App,
but unfortunately for now, only authorized persons can touch...



However, you can touch App if you become a creator.(LOL)



First of all, let's start touching The Epic.


The Epic screen shows whether you want to continue reading where you stopped earlier.
In any case, it'll start from the beginning.

 

Wow, there is fairy tale like peaceful BGM sound started.

It's music to my ears. 

Sound and Animation are on in Default Setting.
Then, to touch the Display Setting,

click on 3 dots in line, on top right of the screen.



Good, it's there.



In the Page Setting chapter, unit is per page,
In the Manga Index chapter, you can specify per episode.


App that can specify only by one page,
it's a big problem when you forget to put bookmark in between pages...

This is very useful.


In the Setting chapter, you can change Animation, Sound and Animation Speed.
It's just right for those who find it slow in Animation Speed Setting.

At this point, I'm little surprised how many settings have increased variety and convient they have become.


ON/OFF of animation and sound is the best fuction for those who want to read in general.
It's also good you can customize as your likings!


Well well, Manga jumps from "The Epic" to "Magical Spice".
When Animation is ON, anlarged picture prepared beforehand is shown in the screen.

Tap to go to next panel.

 

 

Wow...beautiful lady...


Like this way, Animation goes on adjusting panel to right size.
I wonder how overseas readers will react...

Can't wait!


How about you over there?

Manga Expantion Overseas!!

No.1!! eManga Know-How "About Moire"

Hi! I'm Hirogecka of WizComic creator/PR!


Those who want to be Manga creator.


Those who are not used to Digital.


Those who can draw Manga, but isn't clear about few things.




I'm sending to those people!



Today, I'll talk about the topic it has been spoken before in many different places.

I'll start speaking about "Moire"!




What's moire?


"He is so moire?"



"Ooops, isn't she so moire? Cool!"




Yep.

This word is not used for exaggerating something.



Then what is "moire"?



It simply means as such!


Tone pasted looks in different pattern unexpected by creator.





It's something like this.
What if this happens to character's hair...



Reader "My eyes hurt, creepy"


Like this...It'll be really hard to look at...


Then, "Why does moire happen?"



WizComic is Digital Comic.

I'll explain on that basis.



Scaling of data.

Double paste of tones.

Scanning of analogue draft pasted with tones.




Those are main reasons.
Then, why it doesn't work?


"Why doesn't scaling of data work?"



When scaling of data is done Anti-Aliasing fuctions,

Neutral color fills up the gap in between colors not to be jumpy.




This is the original data.


This is enlarged one.



Can you see the gray color?
It was forcebly enlarged, so it's not only black and white.

This is original form of moire.


Let's not forcebly enlarge or reduce!!



Did you understand?
Then let's go next!



"Why double paste doesn't work?"


Many of you must already know from seeing he first picture.




I won't say a word...





No no, I will←

Particles of different shapes become firm and turn into totally different pattern.


Of course it turns out to be better depending on tones used.
However, it'll take great risk.
Preferably, it's better not to use Double Paste of tones!




Well then, next is...


"Why scanning of analogue draft pasted with tones doesn't work?"





Hmmm, I'm afraid this expression may be inappropriate.

Properly speaking,




It may turn out to be beautiful,
but it may not work out well depending on how you use setting or scanner.
If you're not familar with scanners,
I advise not to scan analogue draft pasted with tones.





Actually, you'll post analogue draft when you order printing for RPS.
Obviously you'll scan there too, but
even professionals know how moire won't happen.


That's why there are some printing companies


requesting to send without scanning analogue draft pasted with tones.




So, if you're not confident with scanning...




1.Setting Scanner


Search for detailed website and study.



2.Research and play around scan setting.



3.Give up and scan draft after finalizing the sketch with ink 

and paste tone in digital format.



That's the solution.




By the way, WizComic have 2 modes for displaying;
panel by panel and whole page without zooming.
This zooming is somewhat similar to enlargement and reducing.


That's why, sometimes your eyes are playing tricks on you
and looks like tones are pasted when zooming.



So,




I don't use tones almost at all!!
(Honestly speaking, it's a hassle to specify tones in digital format.)



Hahahahhh, I apologize for that.



Of course! There are many creators who draw drafts very beautifully using tones!

With recent Digital expantion, I feel using or not using tones

have become more free.


In conclusion, as long as you master it doesn't matter whether you use tones or not!!

Well well, are you ready to be the creator for WizComic?




P.S.


With WizComic, I've expained how applying App function leads moire to happen.

"I've pasted already! What can I do? Do I have to paste it again?"



Those of you above, do not worry.
I'll explain, taking Comic Studio as an example.



By pasting all tones in black and white conversion,
change the final "Data Export" setting.


1.Choose Data Export as usual, select "Gray Scale" as Data Export.


2.Choose "Select All Gray" in "Setup Tones".



Yes!!

Dots are gone and tones texture are no longer there,


but moire won't happen.


If you want to keep dots,
it'll be all right as long as you choose don't gray.



Try it!
