Konnichiwa Guys,

My first manga is finally finished!!! Geez,... it took some very hard work and looooooong late night hours. There were a few moments when I really thought there was no ending to it...

But here it is:

TITEL MANGA: IPODOBOY
EPISODE: #1: 'Recharge...!!'
GENRE: Shounen/ Battle/ Action/ Adventure/ Comedy
PAGES: 28

go check it out!!! You can choose where you want to read it.

Facebook: www.facebook.com/media/set/?se…
Website: www.ipodoboy.com/index.php/man…

It took me 1,5 year to write down the main storyline until the very last ending and finishing this first episode.
I really want IPODOBOY to continue for as long as I can. It's a shounen jump-ish type of manga. Meaning;
There will be some spectacular battles, great characters, good comedy, big adventures and most of all, an original epic storyline.
Working out the entire story will take up to + 500 episodes. 500!!!! (Yes i'm a little ambitious,...)

It would mean the world to me if you could share it with all of your friends and "like" this manga on my facebook (I really could use the support) ( ^_^; ): www.facebook.com/pages/Ipodobo…
I made this manga for all of you! So if you are a big fan of Naruto, Bleach and One Piece you will enjoy this one, I promise ^_^

Please leave your feedback/ comments/ critics on my page if you like to.

Hope to hear from all of you.

Ja ne! ^_^


ps
Episode 2 is on it's way!

I already start drawing at primary school. Like many artist I was doodling in school notebooks instead of paying attention
to the classes.I don’t recommend this, stick to school! ^_^

Most of my inspiration comes from the years when I was a kid.
I grew up with impacting anime/cartoons like Thundercats, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Mask. Slowly I started to see the differences between Japanese and non Japanese animations and illustrations. In my teenage years my father past on hundreds of Spider-man comicbooks, I loved Spider-man!
And Jeez, I drew a lot of Spiderman pictures back then, my whole room was filled! I think making comics started from there on a unconscious level, but then the teachers on school told me that a cartoonists don’t make a lot of money so I just kept it as a hobby.

I also remember that my father arranged some drawing lessons when I was 13 years old. I would get assignments via post. They would send assignments like, "copy this house and this tree". Most of it was in ink and after I was done, I would have to send the copy back from wherever it came from. Somebody would grade it and send it back again. I never saw that person or spoke to him. Really strange system, when I think about it... But I didn’t follow it for long because I didn’t see the benefit of it. Today would be a whole different story. I like to work on my techniques and trying to improve them every day.

Over the years I found my passion; making movies as a director! I loved movies! And ever since I was a kid me and little brother were always making movies. After finishing the college in AV-Design, I builded up my own Audio-visual and Graphic Design company in 2004 to pursuit my dream as movie director. Two years later the first concept of Ipodoboy was born. The original idea was to make a movie of this character. I wanted to make movies in an Anime style. Something new, that's never been done before. But to something like that, I needed more experience, so the concept of Ipodoboy was put on the shelve. After making commercials and building company identities for years I found out 2 things; 1. Making company films and commercials was pretty creative and fun to do but I didn't get the satisfaction I was looking for. I wanted to reach peoples harts, not the pockets of companies. And 2. I found out that my passion never was about making movies at all, this was merely the surface. What my passion really was about, is telling a great story. Something that would stick, something that could reach peoples harts. So a new journey began.

The anime series Naruto, Bleach and One Piece made the biggest difference in shaping my new clearer goal. I was fascinated about the way these intriguing stories where told. So, I did my own study about the origin of anime; the manga. I always had a connection and a deep interest for the Japanese art and now I knew why. The stories and illustrations of anime are deep, rich, artistic and full expression. So, I picked up my drawing skills and this time I was determined to make a manga of my own. I decided to sell all the video equipment that the company had. Now I had savings, enough for one whole year. It's a big risk. But I'm a risky guy and sometimes a bit crazy. ^_^

I already had a great concept from 2006 on the shelves right? This is when I began developing the story of Ipodoboy. I worked on just the story for more then one whole year. It took another year to fit the story in chapters, design the characters, environments and finishing 2 chapters. Each day I struggle to find the time to work on Ipodoboy because I also have a job. But I hope the day comes I can make it my profession. So, I can spend all of my energy, time and devotion in this amazing manga. Because it's gonna be awesome!

Ohai MustaYaki! First off i would like to thank you for the workshop you have given us. It was the most motivating speech I have heard this year. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Personally i think people do not realize how good you really are as an artist untill they see your work made during the process, angle’s, expressions in the faces of the characters, uses of effects. As a person i am too shy to give incredible people kudo’s face to face. This also because my cousin and i are shocked about the fact you started since 2010.
The things you have told and answered when my cousin was asking questions really broke the lock i had in my head preventing starting my own small personal project. It felt like you understood the things i am dealing with when making a dream possible. I am now close with another cousin who is a sound engineer, i will try to hang out more with a brother of a friend of mine who is specialized in video. And i will pick up anything related to writing and try to meet as much writers to get more inspired everyday. It is very very true that the story is the most important thing. ****! this was the boost i needed since i had a writers block. The tip your brother gave me about starting a blog about my dolls is a super good start to practice writing, thanks a lot! But more important too, I think I, myself and all the others should also support you anyway possible, instead of you helping us!

Hi guys!! I follow you from your clup in youtube , that's really cool you know!? 

That's exactly what my senpai [they are a mangaka in Thailand] told me. Yes , many peopl in Thailand want to be a real mangaka , and in my office we have a book call DEBUT : Road to be a mangaka for a one shot story.

So many people come every weeks and present us their debut , but only around 5-10 percents are published.

And many people ask me a question about to be mangaka , and your clip help me answering it so much :"D.

Well , I'm just an apprentice , working as the mangaka's assisstant , but working on my own debut to XD

Hi,
I saw your video on youtube about drawing manga and got very curious.
I've been wondering how mangakas really draw. It seems like you guys have a very heavy workload, having to draw so much under the pressure of deadlines.

Do mangakas use guidelines when they draw their characters? For example, drawing the position of facial features or the outline for the body in a pose? This mangaka, Kubo Tite, ([link]) seemed to do it without guidelines.

Also, how do you guys practice? Do you go through gesture drawings? Do you practice drawing different variations for the eyes, nose and mouth?

Thank you for posting videos on youtube. The work you guys do are really amazing... an inspiration. I hope I could learn more.
