It's the month of hearts, and what's one way to show off your Valentine's ideas? Through manga form, of course!
A yonkoma or 4-koma is a type of manga that presents four panels per comic strip that traditionally are the same size and stack on top of each other vertically. (Anime-Planet)
The format will look like this image below: (from JapaneseWithAnime)
Here's a sample that may help you get an idea!
Software Used: Photoshop + Clip Studio Paint
Got the gist of it? Let's head on to the event proper~
✔ The event is open to all envoys interested whether you may be from Phoenix or Chimera
✔ With Valentine's coming, create a valentine-themed yonkoma manga using in-game screenshots from Aura Kingdom only
✔ Maximize your yonkoma with photo manipulation, and additional manga effects with any software available~
✔ We welcome ANY genre that's applicable for PG13 audiences! Get wild with horror, fluff, gag, angst, drama, etc., as long as it's related to Valentine's Day!
✔ Only in image format posted here, in the forums, will be entertained!
✔ Make a forum thread in the Fanarts Section showcasing your work and only reply your thread’s link on this post
✔ The deadline will be on February 15, 2019 - 11:59 PM EST
✘ Only one 4-strip panel will be allowed. The only exceptions are if you're gonna be doing the same sample format as I've made above, and if you're gonna use different formats of yonkoma, but it has to be vertical panels only
✘ You cannot use any other 3D rendering software to manipulate a 3D model from Aura Kingdom (i.e. MikuMikuDance, Blender, XNALara, etc.)
✘ Rewards are not to be gifted to another pair of players
✔ There’s no maximum limit to how many screenshots you can use, so get wild!
✔ If you edit your guide after the deadline, it will result to minus points on your score card!
✔ Follow the Aeria Games-Gamigo Group's Terms of Service. If you don't, you'll be disqualified
✔ Posting your IGN and server on your thread is optional. Otherwise, if you don't post it and you've been chosen as a winner, we will contact you through forum messaging regarding those details
✔ Important: Due to past incidents and issues, only MY SIDE of the forum time will be considered. Any kind of intervention saying that the timing is incorrect will not be entertained

"Is your manga fun to read? Is it enticing and easy on the eyes? Is it funny/scary/sad/etc.?"
