Hi my pen name is ishiya223
I draw anime, manga and semirealism but lately more into a mix of both,
I've been looking to create a webtoon since the start of 2022 but I haven't gotten the hang of it yet and still trying to find my style, way of doing webtoons and workflow of comic creation.
I have recently written a story (work in progress) scripted, storyboarded and done some art for myself.
(after i've been too naive trying to draw the stories directly from my mind and failed a couple times.)
I also have a discord server dedicated to bring people like me togheter to create something but it needs more members of the same timezone as me. https://discord.gg/kUEtPfRjzn it also revolves around people looking for short term to long term collabs but it's quite dead, it's dedicated for helping and collabing
my timezone is gmt+1 quite important
I am a huge gantz and Jagaaaaaan fan,
my favorite mangaka's are oshimi shuzo(chi no wadachi), hiroya oku(gantz), and @orangeqoon on instagram and @katsuyaterada.
Genres I like drawing are supernatural elements, fantasy, sci fi shapes, seinen
I enjoy reading, psychological, action, drama, romance, seinen, supernatural, fantasy, scifi, fiction, comedy
About the project:
I would want a partner to draw comics togheter with me on a live drawing platform called flockmod.com
Why flockmod? It has everything you need to make a comic,it's easy to use and you can draw with a multiple people in real time, and it's completely free, It has up to 5 layers and room chat.
pros: it has text tool with different fonts(it even has monica comic), line tool,
lasso and rectangle selection tool that works similar to csp, can move, resize, rotate ,fill area, clone, flip, and delete
has clean UI, up to 20 brush presets.
thought out settings menu, customizable shortcuts
basic custom brush function.
it's free and on the browser, and available to download.
you can draw realtime with up to 30 people or more.
cons: no real ctrl+z, users have to erase, redraw, or use lasso tool to create clones to another layer, otherwise board can be undone between time intervals quite easily, can get laggy if bad pc or internet
there is no skewing transform
The board size makes it suitable for quick comics, perfect size for webtoon formats
btw the websites has rooms made by other users and sometimes the content can be 18+ or offensive shitposts so don't get surprised !! and be aware!!
Actual details about the project
This would be an unpaid collaboration project, I know not many would be interested but I am looking everywhere for a project like this where people draw togheter on the same board in real time and create a webtoon comic, instead of the typical writer x artist collaboration.
for the project we would hop on flockmod on a private room called m1m2 https://flockmod.com/r/m1m2 (password protected, password in my discord) and draw anything, create a comic, or go off a prompt/ or written outline/script, and then we would create a basic storyboard in preparation and then draw them togheter as a duo.
For my comic projects I have chosen to draw quite relaxed, I won't rarely do lineart, screentone, colors and stuff like such, I will only draw as much as what you would call a sketch and focus on the overall workflow. You might have other goals, and I respect that. this is just how i have chosen to do my webtoons, atleast for now when im trying to get the hang of creating stories and making comics out of it.
these are images i've drawn in flockmod that i've later copy pasted onto clip studio paint and done some small edits just so you can get a good idea of how we can turn drawings we have done in flockmod into webtoons
about the content for you to draw, we would create scenes or short stories ranging from 2 panels to a short story eventually, depending on how much you want to draw and what you want to draw.
Im looking for somone in the same boat as me
you are interested in making comics but haven't gotten anything close to a finished webtoon
you have failed a lot of projects because it's been overhelming
you are passionate and really wants to create a story to tell
you really want to learn how to make comics
you want help, feedback
you want to trade skills with someone
you want to learn.
you want to have fun while learning passively
you want social interaction while drawing
you are open to making bad art to create good art
you get bored drawing alone.
Required from you for this to work:
learn flockmod, don't worry I will teach you as i have been drawing on that website almost daily since 2017!
I have made a simple guide for people interested to get used to it in a day or a weeks time, it really isn't all that hard though, the hardest part is letting go of ctrl z, but flockmod does support undo function to a degree
Use flockmod to collab with me or other users in the discord server
- some motivation
- Discord for ping, events, collabs, communication
- google doc or discord for writing scripts, outlines for your practice project, dummy project
Deadlines wouldn't really be a thing, this collaboration project is to get ourselves used to making comics. but just to push ourselves I can pay you xx amount of money as a reward, motivation thing
What I want to get out of this project:
I want people to visit flockmod more often
I want to create a webtoon by only using flockmod as the main drawing tool.
I want to practice with a friend
I want to create a comic with you
I want to experiment with my workflow
overall i want to practice, story isn't relevant but can be fun if we want to become independent writers
learn how to write by prompts given by you? maybe? and reverse
Please reach out to me on discord if you are interested to train and have fun with me! :33
my past works:

sketch blog all drawings made in flockmod https://ishiya223-blog.tumblr.com/
I love all comic creators and won't judge you of what you draw, Comics can be amusing even with minimal art like these pages! XD
