For those of you who haven't had a chance to review the last contest winners and entries. Please visit our last journal post here MU Challenge 4: The Winner has been decided!Hello there dear members of Manga-United,
The time has finally come to announce the winner of MU Challenge 4!
The challenge was about creating a manga in Slice of Life genre, with the theme being ”Taking Care of a Child”. The task definitely wasn't simple, considering that the participants were to make most of the 10 pages that were allotted. There were a great deal of enthusiastic people to take on the challenge regardless. Unfortunately, the timing of the final deadlines with school exams and other responsibilities made many forfeit. There were over 20 participants at the beginning, but only 3 of them made it to the goal.
The judging took more time than was appropriate. We are sorry for the delay, but it was for the greater good. Our long and deep debates made it sure that the prizes are distributed fairly according to the merits of the entries and completely devoid of personal opinions or irrelevant matters.
So, let's get started. It's advisable for the participants to r

Ok now on to Business. I had planned this big contest for a mainstream one shot manga for you guys. There was even going to be cash prizes for first place and 2nd place. But after a very long discussion with :iconnsio:. We have come to the conclusion that you guys simply aren't ready for such a big step yet.

So what we are going to do is, host contest with different themes. This will help you get ready for the next step in manga making.

For the ones of you hear that can draw well or good then you are some steps ahead of the others who can't. Please help them. For those of you who can't draw well please visit  :iconnsio: DA page he has plenty of tutorials that are very helpful to any artist.

So we will also be providing better prizes for you guys in our next manga challenge.  That was another hot topic of discussion.

Basically Manga united is all about getting better in your craft and creative field in Manga. If you have any questions for writing, or story issues i am the person to come ask questions. If you have drawing concerns please address  :iconnsio:.

I will be announcing the next challenge with in the week. So be ready I understand that school and college has began for a lot of you so the page work this time around will be a lot shorter. But this theme will be fun and challenging. I think a lot of you will enjoy this next challenge.

Any questions,concerns or ideas to help this group grow and flourish. Please leave a comment below. Thanks!

Can't wait for the next contest. I want to be teamed up with a writer. My writing isn't the best, so I could use some help, and I will do the art.

We are firm supporters of creating artist-writer pairs here at Manga-United and would love nothing more than to see that in the next challenge!

Hopefully we will have the next challenge prepared soon!

Hi I wasn't sure where to submit the spread for the challenge, so I submitted it to the pages folder. (and I'm not sure if I did it correctly)
KENSHINRO7 Featured By Owner May 25, 2014

I missed this challenge I guess I'll have to try for the next challenge!

It looks fun (and difficult).
I wish everyone luck!

Welcome to Manga-United!

The challenges really are difficult, but definitely worth it; I highly recommend preparing yourself by drawing manga pages in advance if you wish to join. Any experience is good experience! Just make sure you a group member before the next challenge; eligibility for the challenges rests on the fact that you have joined this group as a general member or higher first.

If you have any questions regarding the future challenges, please contact our founder, KENSHINRO7 He decides when we will have challenges and what they will entail generally, before we decide on official rules.

Thank you!

I know even drawing one page is difficult. It takes me half a day to do one. I'm not very good with flow or composition either, but I figure prompts and setting might help me practice.
ShinguAmito Featured By Owner May 28, 2014  Student General Artist
Most definitely. At the end of the day, practice is the biggest thing you can take away from these challenges. It's worth the investment, in my book!

My script is ready, I just need to type it and make a few adjustments. I'll upload it today
