Finally! Finished the cover! Let me know what ya think! Just realized I probably should have put this in the artist corner... oh well.



I put my other story back in the drawer until I can improve my artwork... which is where this thread comes in.

I'm going to be doing a very art driven manga project to help improve my art and my page drafting time. I'm not going to really plot out a story (I have confidence in my writing ability and don't think it needs any immediate attention), but mainly just start with a general plot, and work my way from there. This will probably start off as a monthly series, but I may jump to weekly eventually. I'm hoping to start it off on the beginning of January next year, in order to give myself time to complete the first chapter and get a feel for the art style. So, here's the general plot:

In the land of Atlas, seven kingdoms born from the seven rings of Hell (Orcs, Trolls, Lizardmen, Undead, Vampires, Lycans, and Dragons) dominate the earth...all but the Northwest Tower and the garden it shelters. The seven kingdoms have attempted many times to destroy the tower, but they are constantly thwarted by what is said to be a 'dragon'. That dragon is Droken Dareheart, a half breed between a human and dragon. And not just any Dragon: the Lord of the East, the Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms: Arcon. Droken protects the tower from Arcon's onslaught daily, all to protect the last true blood human, Princess Tridia. But the darkness of the land is consuming her will and causing her great illness. To save her, Droken must make a treacherous journey across the entire continent to hunt down Arcon and free Tridia from his malice. Tridia uses the last of her magic to summon the soul of her grandfather, a legendary warrior, to protect her while Droken is gone. And so Droken sets out to take on the seven kingdoms of Hell... alone.

I did a quick sketch of Droken (and very quickly and crappily added some color) that I'll be finishing and inking for the cover:



Also a logo (not the best I've done, I'll admit):


I'll be working on this for the rest of the year and using this thread to update it (might move it to the manga section eventually, depending). I'll be uploading the manga "exclusively" to Crunchyroll for you guys. I'd honestly like your opinions to see if you think this is something you would read, and also if you have any suggestions for a certain kind of "monster" you'd like to see in a manga style (as that is what most of this series will be about). Until then, I'll probably just keep drawing and working on ideas. Your opinions are highly appreciated! ^_^

Yeah, I realized I probably should have moved it once I started posting so much artwork. Maybe a admin will move it for me.
