*Edit 10/4/2014--This is the final cover page. Thanks everyone for your feedback on the revised version. That really helped me. Luv n hugs to you all! :iconhug1plz:

I'm in the process of creating this manga/comics at TwelveGates website. Like the saying goes, "No pain, no gain." This is a painfully detailed process I'm growing into. Seems like I'm learning to draw all over again. Let me know what you think about the cover.

Here's the summary of The Watchman:

On the hidden planet, Shatazar, Delah, falsely named princess and her cousin Teeabu, newly-ordained priest turned warrior, live under the powerful rule of the Watchman of Araidia. Given a mission to eradicate poisonous plants, Delah meets a boy from Earth who turns their lives upside down.

Thanks for introducing this! And nice cover illustration with nice details!! I'm so lazy that I can`t draw more than 2 people in my illustration.

I just wish that the type would stand out more from the illustration. (I'm a graphic designer, and I get super type nerdy, haha) I see that someone pointed out for the title. How about using all capital letters for the title? Like your 2nd chapter title. I feel like thin and tall looking typeface (so called condensed version) would look nice on this illustration. Also it could look modern.

You're welcome! I hope you enjoy the story and continue to point out the good, bad, and ugly! ;) Regarding what you said about not drawing more than 2 people...I'm like that. It took a lot for me to do this one. I'm so impatient...I literally had to do a little at a time. I HATE doing buildings or rooms. However, we all have to learn, right?

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT, IT'S NOT GOOD! Yeah, I've been thinking of re-doing some pages before I post to Tapastic & other webtoon/manga sites. Thanks for pointing this out. It reinforces what I have to do.

Drawing background is another huge work, haha. I'm also very impatient! I just want to finish a drawing quick and move on. I learned that I need to spend a lot of time, and need to be patient to come up with nice illustration. I guess drawing is all about practice and looking at nice references.

Most definitely, but I find your art reflecting oodles of patience and details. I guess I'm learning to sit in one spot more to forge ahead in a project. That reference, practice, and patience goes a long way! Hey, Ramyoo, thanks so much for commenting! :hug:

I love this cover. The color and composition are great.
The only thing I would change its the tittle. I'd edit it, bigger, and a clear font. So it gets more importance.

Yeah, I see what you're saying about the title. As you can see, I tend to be obsessed about the art, not wanting to hide any on this cover. But you're right...it needs to be bigger. I had edited the cover with this. The old cover, the title was much bigger.

I know what you feel aobut it.
I think I have seen in japanese manga, some times the put the same cover twice. 
One with all the text, where the art is in second layer.
and the next page is only the art.
It would be nice do it that way if you don't want hide it ^^
Also covers are great for the use of fans, so they'd love have the clean version too

I really like your comic so far (now you are at page 13) :clap:
I have no clue about the world, the characters, I am actually not that sci-fi-looking fan either BUT the story telling is very catchy. The off voice. Also the speed. Excellent :nod:
I have one fave page so far because of a very beautiful panel: page 10. I love both panels but mostly the upper one. I simply love it :heart:
I was having little trouble with the 1st panel on page 7. My eyes went to the right instead of downwards, that why I read the bubbles 1-3-2 instead of 1-2-3.
The language is a little to difficult for my English skills, too, but I enjoyed this nevertheless ^^
I don't know how it'll be getting the pages in pieces instead of devouring them all at once as I did, but I'l figure that out from now on ;)
Keep on going!! :hug:

:iconhugglesplz: Thank you soooo much! Isn't that interesting about the world. I'm introducing it slowly with the characters interacting. Don't worry, you'll get a taste of how everything is working. Thank you sooo much about page 10.

Yeah, these 13 pages go really quick. The art takes a very long time to do. But when you read it, everything passes by in minutes.

Please keep on commenting. Also commenting on the actual page is helpful because I will know exactly what you are talking about.

Nackmu, I really appreciate this. You have made me very happy! :boogie:

it looks like a interesting story 0-0...
here's one tip: when you're doing complicated images like these, play with the thickness of the lines a bit, in this way you can put different emphasis on the picture...
and don't be afraid to make the character touching each other..in this way people can look at them as a whole instead of flying their eyes around the page...k..what I'm trying to say is.....the three characters you have there....you can have one of the the bottom one facing the right, and make he/she closer to the other person...in this way they make a nice and stable triangle....right now the page look really slanted towards the left....
and also...if you want to emphasize the flower dude(because he looks kinda special and kinda different from the other two), try putting him on the top of the triangle...and the girl and the dude can be at the bottom, one facing left and one facing right 0-0...
 
one easy way to change their orientation is using photoshop...if you did this in layers you just select that character's layer and do a horizontal flip..

There's much activity on this cover that I have to take a while to make sure I see everything and it's all lovely! You have quite the eye for movement which is great for a promo image!! So much detail in the background I'm really liking the setting and I'm already curious about the characters especially flower dude there in the corner

:iconbutterfly1plz::iconbutterfly2plz: Thank you so much, furystarcat! I tried to put in the main elements of my story. The city, the train, the flowers... they all play a role. I'm just hoping this story concept comes through to the readers. Here's hoping flower dude makes it! Just kidding. There's a reason I featured the flowers around him, but he's no superhero that sprouts flowers as a weapon. ;) :giggle: (I know, some manga stories would do that.)

This image... GAAAH, this image. It's so beautiful!!!!! I think this is an absolutely awesome and very interesting series image. Seeing the characters and at least a bit of the world/setting that they're going to inhabit... makes me that much more interested to read it.

First of all, all of the characters look interesting. The woman is beautiful--I love her design a lot. I love her headgear... and now I'm particularly interested in that strange critter on her shoulder!! Anyhow, she's very gorgeous, and I look forward to learning about her! But then there's the blue-haired guy... OH, blue-haired guy. I think I'm in love with that fellow. His hair is AWESOME!! I love the unique style and the ties in it and the way it feathers up. It's really unique, and that's AWESOME! Meanwhile, you've drawn his muscles and stuff great! He just looks rockin'! And the final character, the blond... He looks really neat, too! I'm making the assumption that the woman is Delah, the blue-haired guy is Teeabu, and the blond is the guy from Earth?? Am I close...?

Meanwhile, the robotic world in the background, with all of its amazing details, is breathtaking. Even if only for this image, seeing the world like this has grasped my attention! Meanwhile, the flowers are a beautiful touch. It gives some life to the robotic world, which is AWESOME!!!

Finally, your coloring technique is incredible. I like your style of art in general, and I'm definitely pumped to see the manga! KEEP IT UP! It's gonna be great!!

Ohhhh, Bert, you have gone the mile in this compliment. Thank you from my heart for all the encouragement and support. Talking about the characters, you're totally correct. Those robotic lines on the buildings in the background and on Teeabu's arm play a part too. I hope it'll be demonstrated right in the story.

Hey, I might need a lot of help doing the manga. This is my first time & I don't know what I'm doing... hehehehe. But I'm going to forge ahead. Struphic has given me some crucial help. I need to bring everything out in visualization & scene to scene action to show the story.

I think I'll need to submit the beginning pages to TG group here to get help (criticism). Pray for me & that this story shows the message that's in my heart (through ink work, paneling, and dialog that captivates the audience).

It's seems like 10 miles to get 10 paneled pages done. God bless you, Bert, in all that you do.

Definitely submit at the group! We're here to help you out! I'm sure you can get some good feedback on the forum, too. Do whatever it takes to learn and grow and do your best, ya know? Most of the artists at TG were just making manga for the first time when we started... so we definitely understand your struggle and any insecurity. We've been there and/or are still there. Don't worry--you're not alone!

I will most definitely be praying for your success! I believe that if God called you to this, nothing can stand in your way! Keep giving it your all~
