To upload your own images, you have to erase the $ sign from the code you get.
When you upload it's like this but with the square brackets ][ that I had to erase to show it.


"[crimg anikevin:$74029185 crimg]"

Make it like this:

Manga origins. With a limited number of pages/panels to work with in a weekly publication, you're faced with this problem: Convey a focus on the character while letting the reader know that something "different" and "dramatic" is happening.

Character makes a face on blank background, and you want the reader to "feel" not "read" the mood: Hard to say what's going through their head. You can't make a red-shift or play a different chord of music -- it's a black and white manga. Solution: Change the background to be non-standard. After a few times, it becomes understood by everyone something dramatic and likely sad is happening, and you don't have to add words to the scene or show a corpse.

Goku standing there with his mouth open -- is he talking? Is he angry? Or is he powering up? The little pebbles and debris started toward the end of the Dragonball series just when crazy amounts of ki was gathering for the first time -- gravity was being overturned and the broken ground was swirling into the air. It was intense.

Then later, a character is sort of standing hunched over, there are some lines around them indicating power ... but the background doesn't move? Nothing's going on? Kind of boring, and you don't want to "waste" space in a manga, you want to be visually grabbing. The little pebbles and stuff stuck around ever since.

where do the katakana come from in Jojo's? Is it the work of an enemy stand?
