the biggest problem that you have which is pretty clear is that you center according to the punctuation like in page 2 bubble 4 and page 3 bubble 3 (other places too , but i wont make a long list now) , which we dont do here , fix that for starters

for thoughts we use gray color #666666 with italicized text

also at places you arrange the words pretty strange and lose all structure in how they are positioned in the bubble , THEY HAVE TO LOOK DECENT , not like mangacurse all over the place

Hmm.. I'm not sure which bubbles your referring too but I guess I was trying to achieve a better shape.
I've finished the remaining 3 correcting some of the arrangements. Hope they look OK.

PostSubject: Re: Typesetter Application   Thu Mar 17, 2011 6:48 am

well page 1 needs better word arrangement + smaller font size for the last bubble , then you will make it with better shape , instead of trying to fill it with giant letters
4th bubble in page 1 isnt centered right at all
3rd bubble page 1 should be with smaller font size , then it will take better shape after some modifying
1st bubble page 1 isnt centered correctly too
"CONFRONTATION" needs to be in another font and you should redraw the background around it , not leaving it brushed like that


page 2

never use yellow stroke , every single not color page is worked in grayscale , that means only black white and gray
also for those thoughts use smaller font size and different fonts
the redraw there in ageha's clothes is badly done too
1st bubble is okay , but the next should be in 3 rows , so that means smaller fonts size

page 3

bubble 2 with smaller font size , should be in 3 rows too
bubble 4 isnt centered right
bubble 5 should be in 2 rows
bubble 7 needs better centering

Still much better than the wannabe-staffies who usually do the TSing test.

You have potential dude, so keep it up! ^^

Just wondering if redrawing and cleaning out the sfx is part of a typesetter's task as well??

hey Loki, sorry I didn't actually mean SFX.

http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2766/2psyren14106mudascans.jpg

like for this above scan with the overlying Japnese texts...

Is a typesetter responsible for cleaning out the japanese texts and redrawing wherever necessary? Or does an editor do it?

Many thanks.

PostSubject: Re: Typesetter Application   Fri Mar 18, 2011 6:46 pm

yeah on both points


typesetter redraws the japanese text and places the english ones , the easiest way is to place the english text without redrawing the japanese before hand , and do it around the english one , just the visible part of the japanese

just so you know from now on

editors = everyone that modifies the raw page in any way , so that includes cleaners , typesetters , redrawers

Hey Loki, I've completed the new test task. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure about the centering for some of the bubbles. Sad Also, I hope you find the structuring of the sentences has improved.

i dont have much time to make you a full review , but i will say this , you are not conssistent with the fonts usage , centering isnt good at all , and you've make some bubbles gray when they are not thoughts , and made thoughts in black and yeah the arrangements arent good too

Geh, bringing ME to the front lines, this old veteran T_T Oh well, since you seem to have potential, at least you were better then when I started ^^ I took some panels and compared them. I hope it helps since I do think that with some help, you could be a great typesetter.







I hope these examples help you a bit in improving, feel free to ask questions =) Also, I think that if you fix the little things, you're pretty good to go, so create an trainee thread to start practicing and welcome I guess =)

EDIT! ( i was confused by the cropping -.-; )
yours is the one on the right... but that looks way close to the right edge of the bubble to me. ;.; how is it that you know where the center is..?

is it that you make an imaginary bubble that extends beyond the panel where the real one is cut off...?
