The Global Manga Initiative is an online indie-manga anthology created by Peter Johnson (aka Petenks) and some others. It seeks to find deserving indie-mangakas on the web and reward them. Up to 30 ongoing series are displayed on their website (link provided below).

Each year, the Best of G.M.I. Awards are held and the top 3 mangakas are given a monetary reward. They are determined by a nomination-voting system where you, the viewers, vote for who deserves it. The series that are displayed are cycled where the lower-ranking ones are replaced by those of newcomers. To qualify for these awards, you must have your work featured in the anthology, as well as have at least three full chapters in the year. The deadline for this year is December 19, 2013 when their final 2013 update takes place.

It offers creators free exposure/promotion of their works. If your work does become featured, you retain all the rights to your work and you have no obligation to them but to keep your series updated. Not only that, but it is also free. There is absolutely no cost to having your work exposed to a larger audience on the G.M.I. website. If this is something you're looking for, but you aren't sure if you'll make the cut or if you're thinking you may not be good enough, still give it a try. Who knows? Maybe you'll be featured, yeah?

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Petenks or visit their site:

:iconmistiqarts: has started a "Drawing manga" project on her Youtube channel.

DRAWING MANGA is a series of videos celebrating manga styled illustrations, with some useful tips and tricks, and effects you can achieve with using only basic tools like pen and paper.
There will also be some nice tips for more ambitious artists who want to use Japanese equipment like fude pens and different Copic markers.

This project will involve a lot of practical knowledge exchange, so feel free to communicate and get productive.

Palmetto720 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2014
Hello Deviantart community 

Hey everybody, this is Palmetto 720. Im clearly working on typing up a series that have been working on for 7 years, all the scripts are done, all that is needed now is to type them 

Title of Story: Legend Of A Zaterrian Hero 

Genre: Shonen, Action, Adventure, Homor, Tragedy 

Two months before the start of the series, two people had arrived at a well known planet, bent on destroying it in order to obtain the five keys of the universe. In order to protect the keys, as well as his family, a lone member of the Royal Family had decided to sacrifice his life in order to preserve the balance. Although he had placed a valiant fight, it was ultimately in vain as the planet was destroyed, and the keys shattered. As a result, the royal family was nearly extinct. It's only surviving member is Alexander, an adolescent teenage boy who was next to hold the Royal Throne, unaware of his planet's destruction. A tradition that has been carried since the beginning of time itself. Now held captive by the assiliants, he seeks to make his way out of this prison in order to find the truth of what happened to the planet, Zaterria. As he goes forth on his journey, he makes various allies and enemies. Will the truth be too hard to bear. 

Previously i had worked with an artist before, however, he had never communicated with me and as a result, i had missed many promotional oppourtunies, such as Yenpress and Dark Horse, as he would never communicate with me or the editor, and he would often refuse to make corrections to the chapters, often displaying them inaccurately. I even offered to pay him. However, he had ultimately quit after me, the editor, and the temporary artist had told him to correct the mistakes he had done with the boxes. as a result, i had to force myself on hiatus, as i was at 30 chapters in august, while he was at Three chapters. and this all started back a year ago. 

this is a free/Paid Comission 

What I mean by that is that For Every Chapter you create and post on Taptastic (provided that you have a paypal account) the views submitted from that chapter will be translated into money, from there. you will get all the money gained from the support program. I will try to get the 500 subscribers. All of the money will go towards the artist, for four years. By the time I graduate from college, with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design & Illustration (Concentration in Animation), i'll then start paying you more often as ill be working in a company. I hope that by doing this, that we have an everlasting partnership, one that doesn't deteriorate due to greed. 

Note: Storyboards wont be included until the spring as ill be taking Storyboarding and Animation classes 

If anybody is interested, please comment. Also, please tell me where did i go wrong. i feel like i did something wrong here. 

and heres an example of the script.

(Scene shows a guard opening the cell door where alexander is residing at) 
Guard: good, you’re awake, now move it. Get out of this cell at once. 
(Scene shows alexander moving out of the cell) 
Alexander: what’s the meaning of this, why am I…? 
(Scene shows the guard hitting alexander with a Taser) 
Guard: you are in no position to be asking me a question, now move it! 

Page 3 
(Scene shows the guard placing the taser back inside a pocket)
