A total 180 degree turn from my original impressions. Just coming from watching this



Highschool musical spoof of an episode. I was so offically defeated at this point.
Crafting an origami
My happiness was secured
until I saw my neighbour beside me had made thousands of them - of every colour of the rainbow

suddenly my hours spent toiling over my flimsy printer-paper crane
felt pointless and plain
My Flimsy Origami
if i had ultimate solitude, i would be happy

Before I was born I suspect I recieved a hate note from an evil angel
It must have said:

May mirrors shatter wherever you walk
May salt shakers suicide dive off tabletops

May it rain in houses where you walk in
and the wet floor erode into thousands of cracks - to break your grandma's back

May sticks turn into iron batons
and stones into 45. calibre full metal jackets
and words stick to you like glue
tougher to get rid of than Magdeburg hemispheres

And finally
When you try to make a joke

may resounding silence ...
...

be your applause
Hate note From an Evil Angel
To you, with much malevolence

So a friend on a forum created what he called The Insane Massive Training Project, where one would reproduce 10 chapters of a manga's work.

It started early last year, and on and off it became clear that indeed, this was an insane project, and all of us decided to call it quits.

On a whim I decided not to let more unfinished challenges lie, so I decided to tweak the rules and allow myself to participate in the project through tracing.

And finally, finally I completed it. And though I didn't become a master, I most definitely learnt a lot.

I of course did Bleach, because I do admire his style, and it's certainly one of the more simpler ones out there to tackle.

10TH CHAPTER COMPLETE.

At this point I have officially finished the '10 chapters' goal of the workshop. But to get a round number of 200 pages I pushed on.

This whole thing has been such an experience. I don't know how big a window it is into the life of a mangaka and Kubo Tite, but I can certainly say I've gained quite a bit of insights from this excercise, and a whole new level of respect for Kubo and Bleach. The work he must put into this is phenomenal despite my usual gripes, and it's a sobering lesson especially considering how tiresome it was when I was tracing already created content. And I didn't even emulate the tones!

Lot's of food for thought to mull over, but all in all Im just so glad, here at midnight to say that I've finished this workshop.

Hell. Yes.
Now this is some good news for once. So looking forward to it. I don't care if it's milking, marketing tactics or whatever, the manga is legitimately good enough for the mangaka to mess around like this. So looking forward to it.
