Art of Drawing
« on: September 23, 2005, 01:41:34 am »
username: Nat-chan
site: www.art-of-drawing.vze.com
contents: manga art site (personal), in the near future tutorials and maybe some short manga.

reason
My site is now hosted with limited space. the reason for me to apply is that I am afraid that the site cant grow after while. so I am looking for some more space. Moreover i am also looking for host that can support php. the current one doesnt support that.



Background.
I have been drawing in manga style for four years now, and am still loving what i doing now. About a year ago I jointed a dutch doujinshi circle called CheeseCake! Studio! Since then I am not only drawing illustrations but manga's also. May, next year, our fourth booklet will be printed. It will be even better then the previous ones. I admit, I am not very good at it yet, but I am try hard to get it right. Drawing illustration and making manga's are complete two differents things.
If you are wondering, about my work, here are some examples

- Counter Play (15 pages, completed)

- The Gift (28 pages, ongoing)

- Life (will be 8 pages, started)

There are a few other manga's that i am still working on. I have the confidence to ending it, if not my fellow member will kick me.
nah, I am very enthuasitic at drawing, so it would be fine.

If you want to see more of my art:
- http://xepher.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=70
- www.nat-chan.deviantart.com


the reason why I dont place all my art at one place is that if I do, ppl will have seen all my art at dev. and wouldnt go to my site. And that goes the same if ppl visited my site before dev.





(I had accidentily press back, and had to write the whole application over again. Hopefully, i 'ven't forgot anything)

I actually like the design of this site, not a whole lot of color though. The code in the background could use work as detailed here. Yeah I'm one of those code picky type, hi!. ;)

Other than that, looks good to me.

That's ok, I just tend to do that. I've been one of those W3 standards nuts for awhile now. No biggie I point it out all the time. :P

The validator actually tells you everything that's wrong in the code. It's pretty handy to use, may want to run it on all your pages. But most importantly, test your site on more than 1 or 2 browsers. Don't want to cut of possible users right?

Your art is lovely! I especially like how you apply screentones, you really capture form and shadow well with them ^__^ *thumbs up*

Woaw! For a second there, I thought I was reading Fushigi Yuugi!
Great work. Though I don't like the style, you draw pretty well in my opinion. Keep it up!

Your inking and screentones are really impressive! I like those..
However, I get the feeling that you started learning how to draw faces first, so that's why they seem to be higher quality then the bodies..Not a bad thing, I have that problem too.

I can't relate your style to anyone elses, I'm not a manga fan :)
