Well, I've been rollin' it over the noggin for a while now; making a Yume Nikki (Dream Diary) manga.
I've been quite shy about doing such projects in fear my style can't compensate for something so complex. Well, I'm going to try.

Anyways, here is some concept art for what kind of form it will be drawn as.

I plan to make it very true to the original game as well.

Also suggestions/concerns would be very helpful.

I am appealing to you /channer/s so, is there anything in particular you would like to see done, or anything I should avoid?

>> No.5673   [Delete]   [Edit]

Avoid a whole lot of dialogue. Focus more on the art and visual aspects.

Picture looks great, btw.

>> No.5674   [Delete]   [Edit]

Picture looks great. I ditto the lack of dialogue. Maybe Mado can talk to herself a bit or you can show what she's thinking sometimes, but none of the creatures/people in her dreams actually talk to her in-game besides the lizard men, so adding dialogue would ruin a YN manga for me...

If you're trying to stay true to the original, also avoid throwing in refrences to fan theories (such as flashbacks showing masada = her piano teacher, shitai = person she saw get run over, etc).

good luck.

>> No.5678   [Delete]   [Edit]

fuck yeah.
again reiterating the fact of having little to none dialogue...but i wouldn't have Mado talk to herself, only short sentences or just one word if you really need to.
but i love the art style, just as long as you keep it about the artistic expression i think you could get away with some simple flashbacks if it's only like a landscape of something or a few panels or relatively nothing.

>> No.5686   [Delete]   [Edit]

Do it. Now.
And minimal to no dialogue.

Just an update; I finished the planning for the "monoko" chapter (which would translate into about ch 6/10) Still working out exactly how I want it to go.

Next chapter I am working on is the "flying" chapter. (1/10)

<---- the image is some of the style in that chapter. (mostly black and white though, until something significant happens).

Also a rough of how the pond girls will appear. Have no clue how I am going to plot that chapter out.

>> No.5804   [Delete]   [Edit]

Soooo basically the story will go something like this;

Mado uses escapism in her dreams to run away from her real world problems (which are never actually specified) As she progresses in her dreams, they become more and more morbid and frightening. What was once a place of happiness and wonder has now become more and more similar to the problems of her real life.

File: 1299039636304.png -(328.8 KiB, 1500x1000) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

beginning stage- mado is in complete bliss over her newfound world.
secondary- mado starts to see some of the ugliness of her dreams, and avoids/denies their existence. (closes her eyes)

third stage; Mado has come to realize that her dream world is horrific, and she can no longer repress her fear, sadness, and anger.

The climax of the book (there will be two)
Is when she sees her friend Poniko will not look her in the eye (assuming but never stating she was a close real life friend) and goes on a rampage. Uboa, you know the drill.

She refuses to sleep, playing Nasu all night and day until finally she collapses and inevitably has to face her fears.

Now the dream world has become so twisted and malformed that she sees the ghost of her former self (in hell). She abandons reason and tries to destroy all remnants of (herself and the dream world) to little avail, She speaks to Kyuu kyuu, (he is the only one that speaks) he warns her of miscellaneous things, (you'll see!) She breaks down and goes to the door, sees face (her ultimate nightmare) wakes up, and decides the only thing she can do is kill herself.

The cat from the upstairs mall, I would like it to be a main character (if you could call it that)
You see Mado finds happiness when she flies, this is where the cat is first introduced.

She won't realize it but the cat will follow her throughout the story.

The cat, in essence represents herself.
To what mean, well.... I'll have to work on that more. (Suggestions would be liked).

Add on no.2.
I don't think I will incorporate the MOTHER area into a chapter. (the FC world itself will just lead to apex of story)
I think I will do some bonus strips or something (if it doesn't sound TOO cheesy) where she meets Ninten or something cute.
And perhaps other cute stuff to release separately (cos all the depressing is just sad, literally.)

If anyone was wondering the main art style I will be drawing this in, it would be similar to Takato Yamamoto.

Monochrome, detailed, and contrast. Some parts I will watercolor.

Forgot the name of this artist, but I would like to do a mixture of abstract and bright colors as well.
As I was playing through the game this sort of imagery appealed to me the most, and connected me the greatest with the whole ambience of her dream world.

>> No.5810   [Delete]   [Edit]
File: 1299041090855.jpg -(136.9 KiB, 500x618) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

I would also add in depthy pictures for encapsulating deep space and perspective, since the dream world itself is such a crucial part of the story (like a character it's own)

Perhaps throw in patters and abstractions, maybe even a stained glas style?

Yume Nikki is a very expressive game, and the reason why I would love working on this is because it leaves so much to the imagination anything is possible. This manga could go anywhere and anywhere, and I will do my best to try and do so!

Um, all of this in mind this will probably be a very extensive project, and I don't expect to finish any time soon. I am still in the process of working out kinks in the plot and incorporation of major events in-game. (Usually I do this at school, but hey! It works!) I'll be sure to keep all of you updated with any significant information.

Hopefully by the end of the month I will be finished with chapter 1 and will gladly post it (probably to a separate website) for all of your viewing pleasures.

>> No.5813   [Delete]   [Edit]

I'm fully behind you on this. You have the skills and ambition to pull it off.
I'd really love it if you stuck to two tone, but having intermissions to introduce major characters in the style of >>5810 would be pretty cool.

something spelt similarly to Hunderswasser
or at least pronounced that way...
fucking hated him had to do a whole project on his artwork.
complex designs everywhere, probably but the characters if the location suited it.
depending on the feel you want to give.

honestly op i would buy it, seeing the quality of your work. let us have a few test pages/layouts to see how it will flow when the time comes?

>> No.5815   [Delete]   [Edit]

Regarding art style.

I think monochrome vs color vs detailed etc should just depend on what's going on. Sticking to just one style would be silly considering the vast amounts of feeling each area can have.

Don't worry I plan on it.
I'd like the book to be more of a "picture book" with a plot than an actual manga. Very expressive!

Here is a recap of my art for 2010 (some late 2009 and early 2011)
So, looking for feedback on what kind of art you prefer, and what I could work with.
I really would love to do some of the pages traditionally.

>> No.5818   [Delete]   [Edit]

I really like the style on the upper right page - you draw humans really well. I think traditional art would look good for when Mado is just exploring, and then more vivid pieces for when something eventful would happen.
Your artwork is beautiful, and the style is perfect for a Yume Nikki manga. I'm totally behind you on this. Like someone else mentioned, I would totally buy this.

Just because something's Japanese, it doesn't dictate that it needs to be anime styled.

In fact, it would be completely inappropriate for a game like Yume Nikki, because that isn't the atmosphere it's trying to create.

>> No.6731   [Delete]   [Edit]

But what i really hate are tripfags.

Lol it's like weaboo /new/ in here.
Anywho. I never said anything about making this doujin anime styled. (perhaps a portion, but that goes without saying for any medium/style of art, I REALLY want to try new things and go all out on this project)
In fact, I said it would be a variant of many styles.
( ._.) the whole point of this was to capture the artistic merit of Yume Nikki that I felt from playing this game. And hopefully, to connect with anyone who reads it somehow. The point being not to focus on one style alone.

I really don't know why you gaiz r fighting.
