Snowbound - 11 Page Manga Preview by hythrain Snowbound - 11 Page Manga Preview by hythrain

Like this? Watch me so you can find out more about what's happening with Snowbound!

HOLY CRAP! This took a long time to get finished, but it was SO worth it! What you're looking at is an 11 page preview of Snowbound, the manga I'll be launching a crowdfunding campaign soon to try and raise money to help speed up production.

For some more info about Snowbound, check out this journal (It's not a lot, but it's what matters right now in development): [link]

Also, I just noticed how badly those boxes on pages 5 and 6 turned out. Sorry about that! it's the result of some hasty editing on my part and not looking. I should've taken a look at them before hand. Won't happen again. Those WON'T look so bad in any form beyond this posting!

... I wonder how many people noticed the teacher's name.

Glad you like it! Since I getting ready to print books now, I'm trying to figure out the best way for me to sell copies of it to get it out there. More copies sold = more money for future chapters! XD

Looks really great!

One thing I would look at is the leading (vertical space in between lines of text). Yours is a little high and it breaks up the text blocks a little bit.

Good luck!

Huh... My brain had just never noticed that. I'll play around with it, make it a bit closer. I need to try and fix some problems anyway (Like those boxes in pages 4 and 5 that scale weirdly)

Don't worry about getting things perfect! Just do the best you can and learn as you go. Being able to look at your own work critically is huge. I think you're off to a great start.

p.s. please I hope you are doing these at 300dpi or greater. I made the mistake of only making my pages web-sized when I first started because "why would I ever want to print it" and it has been the biggest disaster. I don't want anyone to have to deal with that same problem! It will be a real shame with all the work you've clearly put into these.
