Staff application?

Post by hlbrg on Thu Sep 11, 2008 10:36 am

Hi, i'm a complete noob at working with mangas... with 0 experience. But i'd like to help out if there's anything at all i can do (other than language related such as translation).'
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Everyone has to start from ground 0 at some point. I'm sure the division heads will be in contact with you. Thanks for your support. By the way, welcome to the forum. By the way which manga are you following/interested in?

as for a start, you should read the "idiots manga guide":
http://www.unblessed.net/guide/

especially the bits about leveling, but since you're a total noob, read all of it, except the SFX part, we don't do them.

lol, and yeah, don't read the scanning part!!

start with the pre-cleaning and stop after the typesetting part...yeah, it's much for a start, but take your time!!!!

Another piece of advice for you.

Practise.

Take some things, scan them in, or just grab some random images from the net, and attempt all these techniques highlighted.

Although, frankly speaking, I personally just charged into the foray. Smile

not too bad...but the images are a bit too small to judge the quality of the scan. couldn't you upload the psd files?
as for the double page...that isn't that easy for a beginner^^. Well, first you should clean the pages, so that the greys have roughly the same tone, then you have to use the clone/stamp tool. click alt and the "left mouse", to specify the part in the picture you want to copy, then click left on the part of the image (here it'd be the white part) you want to fill with the copied image. hold the mouse clicked while moving, and you can continue to copy the original image in the way you move the mouse...sounds confusing. And yeah, like I said, for that you need much pracise and even more patience.

Good luck on further tries.

Uhh, you're supposed to 'fill' up the double pages...


FOR EXAMPLE...
RAW
http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/8681/airgear1415bi0.jpg

And here's the clean I did (w/o post processing...) End result should be something like below with a 'level' look. This was half complete when I uploaded it... months ago.

hi hlbrg ^_^
i was just looking at your practice pictures, may i add some comments? ^_^

@practice 2:
1. Please add more levelling (black & white)
2. Please darken the bubbles' outline
3. There are still noticeable dusts all over the pictures (you may want to zoom in for a closer look & for better cleaning advantage ^_^)

hope these are helpful to you ^_^
please ask if you need help.
