My Cartoonist Guide - Chapter 1225.2
After writing the last word, the whole person relaxed, but there was some emptiness in my heart.
After more than a year, the book is finally finished, 2.65 million words, not much, but not too few.
In fact, I originally thought that there would not be so many words, about 2 million words, but I didn’t expect to write so many.
As for the reason, it is probably because unless there is a manuscript, the author is not sure about the length of a novel, just like “One Piece” was originally intended to be serialized for five or six years, but now more than 20 years have passed.
Going back to this book, the grades are not too good, the collection is more than the previous book, subscription is not as good as the previous book.
In fact, there was a chance to exceed it, but due to update reasons (I guess this is the main reason), the result of this book is not good.
Speaking of updates, there are actually many reasons.
The book was opened hurriedly. There are only 5 chapters saved, which is full of calculations, less than 20,000 words, and most of these saved drafts are used when revising the previous plot and changing the name of Yan Fei. As for why there are so many obscure names, in fact, the fundamental reason is that they do not want to have duplicate names. After all, a novel needs a villain. In case it encounters a reader or the reader’s elder’s name, which overlaps with the villain, it is somewhat embarrassing, or the same name as a hero I don’t know, gets 404, but forgets that the reader may not Knowing, I couldn’t think about it, sorry.
But it’s hard to recognize other words, I admit it, but the word “han” shouldn’t be hard to recognize, because there is a star named Luhan, even if he doesn’t listen to his songs, don’t watch the TV shows and movies he made, and entertain. News will also appear, right?
In addition to the lack of manuscripts, in the middle of the year, I remember that on July 1st, something happened at home. A family member lost more than ten kilograms of weight in a month. Moreover, when doing flat scans, A low-density shadow was found on an organ.
I lost weight rapidly in a short period of time, the internal organs appeared shadows, and at the same time, there were corresponding symptoms. At that time, I had a bad premonition, and my family made the worst plan. The enhancement of ct can’t be done until July 10th. During that time, not to mention the tears, it is similar, and I am really not in the mood to write it down. Therefore, for many consecutive days, there is only one change per day (I really didn’t know how to write it at the time), which may be one of the reasons why the grade of the novel completely collapsed.
I remember saying at the time that if something happens on July 10, this book will end here. The reason is to wait for the results of enhanced ct. If the situation is not optimistic, this book will really tj.
Fortunately, no space-occupying lesions were found in enhanced ct, and the family members also began to pay attention to the body, slowly recuperating, and the body is recovering. But this incident has consumed a lot of energy for me, and my state has never been adjusted.
The reason for mentioning this incident to you is not to win sympathy, but to say that you may also think that the serious illness is far away from you. I also thought that at the beginning, but in fact, being very close to yourself, my family is just a middle-aged person. Years only.
So, physical examination! Physical examination! Physical examination! (I tell the important thing three times)
Whether you are working in a company or doing business yourself, you must pay attention to physical examination. For some diseases, the early and late stages are completely two diseases. It may be easy to solve in the early stage, but in the late stage, you may have to wait helplessly for that day (I really experienced the painful feeling for my family during that time, but the powerless feeling of helplessness).
Another is to pay attention to work and rest.
What money, what hobbies, what feelings, what dreams are all worthless compared to the body. When a person is sick, it is not only the patient who is hurt, but also the family and all those who care about him.
Everyone should have heard of something that happened at Yi not long ago. The body is one’s own and must be cherished.
Again, back to this novel.
Although this novel is also a copy of the text, it is not the same as the similar works that everyone has seen. The reason is that the template of this comic is not those works, but “Dream Eater”.
Conscience again recommends “Dream Eater” (also known as “Bakuman”), station b has all three seasons of anime, and the manga app at station b also has this manga. It is a small number of free comics in the manga app at station b. This manga is the last manga that I can stay up late to read. Since then, I haven’t felt this way when I read other manga. That’s why I said in the article that this comic is underestimated.
When I first saw this manga, it was really hard for me to imagine that a manga about a manga artist would be so good-looking. If I had the opportunity, I would also write a novel by a manga artist.
However, many years have passed, and this dream has also been forgotten. (Haha)
There is also a Japanese drama called “Reprinted Out”, which is about the comics industry from the first perspective of the editor. It is also very good. It is recommended by Cracking the Wall. This Japanese drama is also based on comics. The style of comics, shouldn’t everyone be able to adapt to it?
As for this book, I wrote something that I want to write. If you score it according to 10 points, I think it should have 6.5 points, right?
Failure to use original works is the biggest deduction for this comic. There is also “plagiarism” that should have been talked about and cannot be avoided. It is not mentioned in the article because the protagonist Wen’s plagiarism is itself a kind of plagiarism. After introducing plagiarism, this novel cannot be written, which is why I want to write original stories.
Compared to others, I still feel that plagiarism is more serious.
The original outline was to involve plagiarism in the “God of Chess” article. Because of plagiarism, the protagonist will start to be original (this is why the protagonist’s pen name is Shen Zheng. The original idea is to start in the third volume. The protagonist wants to Serialized with my real name), but I changed the outline for the sake of mixed food. After all, original comics and Wenchao Gong give readers a completely different sense of substitution.
The cartoons selected for this book should be relatively classic, why didn’t you choose Dead Huohai? On the one hand, because the frequency of these comics is too high, there is no shortage of me. Another more important reason is that the rhythm is too slow. The three shortest comics have been serialized for fifteen or six years, and the model of this book is imitated “Dream Eater”. I have drawn a comic for more than ten years. No matter what aspect, the rhythm is too slow.
As I wrote in the article, the original protagonist of “Dream Eater” used so many short stories. In addition to expressing the growth of the protagonist, another reason is that the work can be switched quickly and new content can be added continuously. If you have seen “Dream Eater”, you should know that once the protagonist serializes a long story, the protagonist’s activity space is limited to the studio. This is determined by the nature of the cartoonist, but Shen Xin travels through the past, if not The copying guild is silly. If copying the public, it would be silly not to choose the comics that can be serialized for a long time, so you can only choose the comics that are not so long and have good reputation and performance.
The novel is roughly divided into 4 parts. The first part tells about the protagonist’s first entry into the comics circle, and the second part chooses “Soul of Go” because he wants to describe that if a cartoonist encounters more professional comics, he will ask for expert guidance, “Soul of Go”. This is the case with “Spirit of Eater Halberd”. The third part is about the change of the times, from paper media to network media. After all, the times are developing, and the world where the protagonist lives has always been a paper magazine. Suitable. Another one is related to the d version. Zuo Yuan’s example is a bit exaggerated, but the d version is still very harmful to the author. But this is like a coin. There are positives and negatives. If there is a genuine version, there will be piracy (driven by profit). It is difficult to change the general environment by relying on the protagonist alone. This is reality. Therefore, it is not too much for the d version. In-depth discussion. The fourth part is about the relationship between studios and cartoonists. In fact, this is the current form in China. Modes like novels or “Dream Eaters” are rare in China because it is too risky for one person to do it. It is very likely that you can only drink cold water for a year or a half.
In addition to plagiarism, it should be said that it can be used to discuss the content, it should be said seven or eight.
Among the selected comics, I would like to talk about “Steel Refining” again. This comic has its own unique features in terms of character creation, plot arrangement, and setting. Remember that when lex mentioned “Steel Refining”, he said a word. After you watch the animation, you will find that this is a circle, which has been drawn from the beginning (roughly this means). I didn’t understand it at the time, and thought that the protagonist finally returned to his hometown, which meant that it was the end. Later, I thought about it again. This circle should mainly be reflected in Edward. At first, Edward did not know alchemy. In order to save his mother, he learned alchemy and lost Alphons’ body and his arm. Finally, he said His own door of truth replaced Alphonse’s body, lost alchemy, but got his own arm.
As far as Edward is concerned, he got nothing (can no longer use alchemy), lost nothing (arms come back, as for the legs, he deliberately didn’t want to come back because Wen Li was taken into consideration), and he drew a big circle , Inside the circle are various past experiences. This comic is definitely worth watching.
Here are a few questions:
1. Why doesn’t the protagonist change jobs frequently?
Answer: From a practical point of view, frequent job-hopping is not conducive to the author’s accumulation of popularity. Take online novels as an example. After changing the authors of three websites in a row, you can take a look at the comparison of his popularity before and after his job-hopping. Job-hopping is a very popular thing, unless it is from a small platform to a large platform. “Comicfuture” and “Junior Leap” in the article are already the biggest platforms. Where else can they go?
Start a business?
This book is about cartoonists and will not involve entrepreneurship. Therefore, the protagonist did not frequently change jobs and did not start a business.
2. Why are there so many work operations/commercial issues involved? The cartoonists are very enthusiastic, and the ranking of the little books is not important to them/why are they aimed at each other?
Answer: Let me talk about the first one. There must be conflicts in the advancement of the story. If everyone is sane, it is difficult to conflict. Therefore, generally speaking, it is necessary to give the supporting role to the wit (just like Song Ren in the first volume. In the end, many people are dissatisfied. In fact, everyone Sometimes it seems that the behavior of lowering intelligence, the reality does exist). In addition to reducing intelligence, there are only conflicts of interest.
Whether it is online novels or comics, in the final analysis, it is a commercial creation. The works are sold for money. In order to make more money, I don’t think there is anything to blame. Isn’t life alive just to survive? As for some great writers who can write novels for the sake of feelings, it is because they have already reached that point, and other writers are not enough. Just like Inoue Takehiko drew “Rurouni”, he can draw his own feelings in comics, and even jump out of commercial creation, but how many cartoonists can do this?
As for the competition among cartoonists, the ranking of the novel… is still the phrase in “Historical Records”, “The world is booming, all for profit; the world is hustling, all for profit”, this is reality. No author does not want his work to be seen by more people, and no author does not want to make a lot of money by relying on his work. The former is fame and the latter is profit.
Having said so much, this book can be regarded as an end.
No matter what everyone thinks of this comic, it is over. I personally think that it’s not bad. After all, I have said everything I can say. It’s okay to leave some expectations. Isn’t it unfinished?
As for the comics drawn behind the protagonist, in addition to “Full-time Hunter”, he may also draw one of “Giant” and Deadfire.
In short, in the future, the partners with Shen Xin will be happy.
As for the lower part of the work, if nothing happens, it should be original (hopefully), perhaps related to a different world, but it is not completely certain, and it is estimated that the book will be opened in a year’s time. It’s been a long time without a serialization~www.mtlnovel.com~ to celebrate the New Year with my family, and this year’s Spring Festival is very early, probably in January, right? With this in mind, the possibility of serialization in January is unlikely, because the editor will also have a holiday, and there will be no recommendation at that time.
After such a long serialization, I really feel that I still have a long way to go, and I still have a lot of content to learn. I also hope that I can come up with better works and be worthy of everyone’s support, so please give me some time .
Even open novels can add to the score, but if the work is not good, the score will be difficult to come out, so it is better to blog.
