Chapter 300 - NAFA Contest by duneboo Chapter 300 - NAFA Contest by duneboo
This is for the Jounin contest.

The deal was to draw something that would resemble a Naruto manga cover. So yeah, this is my attempt at a manga page...like i said...attempt... :P But anywho, it gets the job done I suppose. Shika takes a nap in a Konoha alleyway...with GIRLY posters! (on a side note, the girl in the pic started out as a drawing of a certain Kunoichi in a bathing suit, but I havent finished it yet, so I just changed the head and hair and slapped her up on the wall.) :D

Shikamaru was drawn in Painter but the background and all that stuff was done in photoshop.

Shikamaru Kishimoto

At first, I thought for some reason you scanned a cover of a achapter from the manga and submitted it. I was like, o.O But then I read that you drew it, then I was like...Whoa...^^ You should show that to someone famous who whoever it is who makes the manga (Kishimoto and whoever else.) They'd put that in I bet. =) Great picture!

Well, this one is impressed. He almost wondered if you had the inside track on the Manga and had the cover for the 300th manga, that he did. Very good work. This one is impressed.

I really like the way you did the background. I admire your skills. It looks very much like a plausible cover as well. I especially like the commentry on the side of the cover.

That and the title of the chapter. It sounds like a possible title as well.

Oh yeah. With the exception minor MINOR style differences, this could totally be a Naruto chapter cover. The side text is right outta Kishimoto's head.

hmm, nice linework, my fav chara, and perspective! ah, good shtuff.

Question: Why do the the chara in painter and the bg in PS? Just because you can do the lines and perspective scaling in PS? (I don't use painter yet, so I'm guessing it doesn't have those options).

Great stuff, particularly if it's all tablet. My hand is about to fall of from tablet drawing so much props to your skills!

duneboo Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2005
Why thank you. :D Well the reason I did the background in photoshop is because I can click and hold shift and it'll draw straight diagonal lines or just straight lines horizontally or vertically, painter doesnt have that feature (not that I'm aware of anyways) so I can never draw perfect lines for buildings and stuff, Also, the version of painter I have doesnt take into account the pen pressure as far as brush diameter is concerned, it'll be lighter if you dont press as hard but photoshop will actually draw a smaller line with the less pressure, which i'm sure you know anyways since you use a tablet yourself. But yeah, its just easier to draw clean stuff (which i rarely do anyways) in photoshop. :D So I hope that answers the question...it was a pretty lengthy response..heheh. :3

Hehe, drawing on the tablet is about the only way I draw anymore, once i got it, I don't think iv done but one or two drawings on real paper. Sad, I kind of miss it, but not as much as i'd miss the Ctrl+Z button. ;P

Shit, Well That's Me Rooted... Great Job, Just A Little Too Great For A Competition I Was Trying To Win... LOL

Anyway, I Came To Ask About The Font... Where'd You Get It, What It's Called etc. I'm Assuming From The Quality That You Didn't Torture Yourself Cutting And Pasting Letters Like I Did.



Great Job... Great Job... :cries:

Aww, well the competition isnt over till the votes come in! ;P

So yes yes, the font I got from 1001freefonts.com and its called "Comic Book Commando" Theres a bunch of other cool fonts on that site as well, I just picked one that resembled the translators version. But the link for that particular font is here --> [link] just scroll a bit till you see the comic book commando, and you can download for either mac or PC. Hope this helps! I know it must have been a pain to cut the letters out, now thats dedication! :D

Thank you for the sweet comment though! :hug:
