Um... I really dont think many of these are answering the question well, whatever. Anyway, if its about earning money, contests can get you money and reputation, though sending it to Akamaru Jump could be better.... Anyway, here are two contests i came across.
1. Jump Treasure.
They do it every once in a while, and the highest prize is 1,000,000 yen the lowest is 10,000 yen. if you can win one of the prizes, that could earn you... well, it depends. 1st=1,000,000 yen, 2nd=500,000 yen, 3rd=300,000 yen, 4th=50,000 yen, and if you were one place away(5th), then 10000 yen.

2.Shincomi
Its the same, only that the prizes are 5,000,000 yen,2,000,000 yen,1,000,000 yen, 500,000 yen,300,000 yen, 100,000 yen. So, if you can win any of the prizes, thats about atleast $1000 there.

Winning either one of these can earn you a fair amount of money(unless you live off of this money).So, amatures can earn a fair amount if they keep winning. Pros, well, im not very sure, but it must be more, right?

If this didn't help, sorry.

If you're any kind of artist, unless you're at the top of your game, you'll probably have a tough time financially most your life. Just the way it is. Good to do what you love, though.

Bakuman is not really a realistic depiction of being a mangaka.
Obata likes to think you have to be a great artist to make manga, but it's not true, most jump manga has pretty basic/easy to art like one piece and bleach. Obata only has himself to blame for trying to make every single one of his manga an artistic masterpiece, because most of it is unnecessary and just flies past us anyway.I find his art to be a lot more american than most manga styles.

Who's OP?


You OP. From my own opinion, I can tell that ppl who watch anime tends to aim for these kind of things, either they are childish or they're just those things you have to work hard for. I once thought of this but I realized that being someone who does this things isn't exactly my type. If you're just being an immature kid who thinks that he's going to make it there then I suggest you don't make a shitty thread about it, most ppl will boast and post shit about themselves.

inb4drawfags
To all those self proclaimed drawing fucks, FUCK YOU. This is about the job, don't you dare go on that topic you fucking assholes. In fact, just shut the fuck up, no one needs a high headed faggot claiming that he's going to be making those animu shit with his fucked up drawing he keeps posting cause he's too proud of himself.





wow...i know that this is a wishful thinking, but i want to
be a manga artist someday....i dont really care about the money
or anything like that because drawing for me is a hobby,
a stress-reliever, something that makes me feel that life is indeed still worth living...
lolz..
am being emo, but that's the truth.....
TriPad, i dont know what the hell your problem is, but judging other people
just because you're bitter and miserable in your own life is worse than being a loser or an OP..whatever that means.

um yea it can if ur like rumiko, who wrote inuyasha, ranma 1/2 and stuff you make alot of money, its a hard work though. well being a manga artist, you could be hired for other jobs. but its hard work many people don't make it to the big $$. for every novel sold you get like 10 percent i think in america. its a very hard job trying to sell your ideas to a publisher, and a good one to cuz its better to get a well known publisher cuz better advertisements so you gatta find hired arts work or sell paintings and stuff untill you get a publisher to accept you and you gatta workk your way up to become famous in the manga world and all at first no not alot of money unless you make a smash hit manga that all manga readers want and then you get a cartoon series made then you could make big money but still not that much you probabaly only get like 1 percent from that so it all depends on the fans
