I being practicing creating my own manga drawings on Clip Studio EX. For the Comic I created a book cover design using Canva.com I wanted it to reflect the story. in the future these manga might be publish but i need to be confident in creating my manga into professional works.
This comic is an erotic genre, so it not appropriate to share some of the drawings but I had a lot of fun. It was inspired by both ‘Dears’ and ‘Loveless’ combined which I love to read.
I watched animation CrunchyRoll site. I watched The Worlds Greatest First Love the same creator as Junjo Romantica, it is a Boy love anime based from a manga. i started to screenshot scene and put them together in a collage. i used canva,com and the pre set templates to place the images. The anime is a proper love story with lots of emotion and dept. (yep there is a lot of kissing) I really enjoy watching the anime.
Creating collages feel very therapeutic and relaxing. I like putting images i like together. i do collage a lot on my iPad with an app. sometimes it is nice to put images together to see how it will look collectively.
I have created a eight collages designs with different templates and panels. it looks like a mini manga comic.
I noticed I get a lot of good information learning Japanese from YouTube. I seem to understand and found the video more interesting to watch,
The Japanese from Zero is good for practicing writing and reviewing the language but it won’t help me learn how to speak it. I need to watch someone or hear a native speaker to pronounce to words more correctly.
I found a native speaker who is Japanese, Her name is Misa. It called Japanese Ammo with Misa on Youtube and she can teach Japanese in a simple way on YouTube. I already subscribed to her. If you are interested you should watch one of her lessons.
I’m still learning new vocabulary on YouTube and on Podcast. Also I learn new vocabulary from podcast.
I just learnt some Japanese grammar lessons on YouTube. It is really worked on my brain.
I’m feeling more of the Japanese language now. Like a sumurial!
I’m having such a positive experience learning Japanese it make me happy.
I discovered that it be more easier to write down notes on my IPad. I have the IPad Air. It’s more convenient and practical to write down note I learnt in an app. I try to write down or use exercise books book but that did not helped me to retained any information. I have dyslexia and always relied on technology for assignment. I need the text to be clear and to have grammar and spelling correct.
If I have the IPad Pro I would of brought the Apple Pencil for writing.
Tinycards app for learning new vocabulary
I use app flash cards to learn new vocabulary daily for 5 mins during the day. These cards are easy to make on a app called Tinycards. I’ll learn a set topic for a week till I learnt the words and remember the vocabulary in Japanese. I can create my own cards that I want to remember the most.
Bear / Notebook app
I using apps on my iPad to keeping Japanese note I learn from YouTube lessons. I can write them in Japanese and record my speaking in Notebook app. It is really good for taking notes and keeping information organised. I can clearly read Japanese and edited the notes.
Notebook app is very good for recording myself speaking Japanese with written annotations.
Journal app DayOne
I use dayone app as a personal dairy but I also do write down a few Japanese sentences.
There are other app you can get, some you have to pay. The three app I used are free and the best pick from App Store.
I sometimes screenshot videos from YouTube for added information.
This can apply to any language you are learning.
