Blackening by luckylace222
Blackening by luckylace222


I drew a semi-poster for my other manga called "Blackening." This will be my first real shounen manga, so I will [attempt to] work on my action scenes! Like this one, LOL:

This is the not the manga I will be submitting next on FAC though. I have not even worked on Blackening yet, ahhah! Super unnecessary/early/suspenseful notice! The plot is about an orphaned chimney sweeper boy who is brought up by a wanted powerful witch because the boy was born out of pure dark magic, so he is a walking dark mana bomb! His mother also infused a powerful light god in his body, and he can only speak through it through a pendant he finds in a nobleman's house in the beginning of the manga. I will work with the plot later. P;

I drew it with a jetstream ballpoint pen(it IS like a jet of ink!) and colored with red and light brown crayola markers- because I am too cheap for the more expensive mediums. I then made more highlights with Photoshop, and BOOM! I made an origami frog. It has been a while since I have explained what I used to make the picture. I might as well be more extensive. I also used my toe to scratch the picture! There! ;P

I actually spent many more hours editing it on PS, and when I was done, I realized the original version looked better, many hours USED UP! D; I will not throw the edited version away. LOL, it looks super evil.
^Does this version look better? D; I cannot tell! Oh jesey queesy!

MadamePenguinNow since I can actually access this bloody website, I shall stalk your page :D By the way, how did we come up with this story again cause I remember you got this idea after a certain story in AP?
oh and the pics horrible >:D no actually I'm kidding...or am I?

luckylace222You better be kidding or I'll tell your dad what you did to me last night! P; He would tell you to take better care of me!

I got the idea from a small poem, chimney sweepers, I believe. I was all, "DUDE! i gotta go and have a manga about a chimney sweeper, and he'll be orphaned, and this poem is about death, so there has to be death all around him, and black magic, and OHH MAGIC, a magic school-" And then it just kept going on from there.

Then, I drew pictures of hot little chimney sweepers and showed you.

Why you not ever get inspiration like this, huh Staph?!

Thanks a lot for the comment!

MadamePenguinI do get epic storylines but I never tell anyone about them cause they are mine >:D I will find that poem again though cause it had some weird spelling of blackening in it...

luckylace222Thank-you! I tend to dig a hole with tons of work with all the color detail I add to each work, so I told myself I HAD to limit the color pallet on this one. AND THAR. I did it, lol.

Thanks a lot!

luckylace222You can't wait to see my development?! 8D *jumps up and down* Well! That is kind of you! I have worked on the sketchy over-detail(so much, that sometimes I do not know what is going on myself D:<) for a long time, ahah. Probably since I started drawing my own manga.

Thank-you so much!

wait... maybe you do? o - O'

Anyways, sounds SUPAHFLY. I totally wanna read it because that orphan boy is SMOKIN' HOT. or maybe im just a creeper *shiftyeyes* idk, but still hot. just sayin'.
Plus, I'm a sucker for fantasy >_>
Wait... which one is the photoshopped version, I can't even tell! *failure of life* but I think they both look good anyways.

I said good didn't I. I MEANT AMAZING~ >;D

OH HEY. FOUND YOUR CAT. ohmygoshiforgothisNAME. It started with a "K", right? OTL

luckylace222 on July 16, 2011, 1:18:15 PM

luckylace222;P Hey! You remembered the first letter. *pats Paige on the head seriously* *sniff* You have grown up so strong...;A; My babeh is gorwin' up so fast!

His name is Koji. I should have given him a cooler name, Like TriggerMayonnaise or something. DUDE. That DOES sound awesome. Holy crap. I am getting goosebumps just thinking about it.

Heck yeah! No one in my manga as a main character is allowed to not be a smokin hot character. In the beginning, he is a little small brat, so if you are okay with pedophilia-<333333 Alrightz then! *fist pump* Anyways, you guys do not have to tell me. Once I make a cover for a manga, I gotta get on with that god dang manga even if it kills me. I was born to make lame manga plots baby! P; Thanks so much!
