    Default Gantz #224 (By myself)

    As I mentioned before in the 224 HQ Raw topic (yesterday), I decided to see if I could do a scanlation - mainly out of boredom. I think I could do better, but this is my first work ever, and I believe I'll improve eventually. Anyways, any comment or critic would be nice, especially by a scanlation group (i.e Illuminati-Manga).

    Good job with the colors. I suggest you make the black blacker and the white whiter. A minor quibble with me is the type of font you chose. I don't think it fit too much.

    Yeah, I was thinking that, for example, the hair wasn't dark enough. And about the font... *shrugs* I used Comic Sans. EDIT: Crap, now that I noticed... I didn't use caps.

    IMO opinion, Comic Sans is much too informal for a comic like this. It fits dailies (like garfield) more. Plus it's overused.I'm pretty sure there are tons of tutorials about these sort of things. I remember reading a tutorial somewheres and there were font downloads. Maybe you could check for those?

    Either way though. You were able to make things much sharper. Plus the typesetting was good. The text wasn't jarred and it was well blended. Plus you were able to but those little white borders for the text. Very good job.

    The comment on the author taking another break is hilarious.
    I think you made quite a good job with that. I couldn't have done it any better - or rather not at all - and I'm grateful for anyone who provides me with new Gantz stuff.
    Thanks man

    Btw I think the font does match well, but I believe it would look better if you used bold letters

    u know, for doing it on the fly, thats pretty dang good! ive seen and read much worse. if you do plan on doing this more often, try not to make it seem like you have to go out of the way to make it look special. the ideal in itself that you took the time to edit the manga and post for everyone to read shouldnt be bothersome to you. we, as the reader, appreciate it

    page 18 is page 10.

    But other than that it was great. I assume there is no page 18, or it was a linking accident.

    I liked it though.

    Four years before, that website would've amazed me. Yeah, I did #224 rather quickly (perhaps too quickly). Next time I'll try to focus more on details, apart from using a better font. About that, do you have any suggestions for a good font?

    My tutor said to never use Comic Sans, I know why now, otherwise good job. A good font would be most serif type fonts, I can't actually remember many names, except for Optima, either that or look up some typography that Hermann Zapf has done.
