As some of you may be aware i've been a busy bee working on a multitude of different projects i wish to publish under my iMAGNi label.
Anyone interested in my stuff should be here:
http://www.imagni.com

BUT. YES.

I have here in my hands my first fully complete project, which is a dream diary (kind of a little test project) and it looks completely badass.
It was REALLY confusing and hard putting all this stuff together, but i suceeded in the end (after many computer problems).

Now i can RUN into printing my actual Gen/iMAGNi story comics. Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa i am so looking forward to this *explode*

Oh my gosh, that's gorgeous! Congratulations on your first iMAGNi publication! I may have to start a collection of your books now too... once the funds are freed up of course! :3

This is actually very inspiring - I hope to publish a novel myself someday soon! I've heard that Lulu is great for self-publishers and all kinds of awesome besides; what say you? Is it easy to start up there? *SCREECHES to a halt before she rambles off-topic* ^_^;

In any case, do some celebrating today!

To be honest when it comes to books, ESPECIALY the template sizes if you're doing full bleed pages to the edge, Lulu is very very confusing because it tends to give you 5 different contradicting bits of information. But once you figure it out, and get into a flow with the pages, the technical stuff becomes a side thing.
The hardest part for me was getting a wordprocessor prog to WORK so i could create my PDF file to upload. Lulu creates its own pdf files, but they have a tendancy to go a bit nuts.

The quality of the printing (I'll take photos tonight) is BRILLIANT. The colors are sharp, the cover is heavy weight glossy paper (like a proper card, not floppy flimsy paper). The inner printing is sharp too, it tends to print darker/stronger than your source file though so always remember that when coloring. It's very well binded, strong and symetrical.

Hell yes i'd recommend them. Just be aware that its confusing as fudge when you first start a project then realise you've done 80+ pages at the wrong resolution or page size etc etc. I had to redo my entire book THREE times before i was happy with it. It requires a LOT of patience and motivation. Especialy when doing page numbering manualy XD There's also a list of rules you have to follow that they DONT TELL YOU at the start if you want to buy a ISBN number (barcode). SO whatever you do, really read up on it. If you need any help, I'm around for advice ^_^

Yeah. Seeing TRiPs work in actual book format really does give her a kick in the ass to get her working more on it. It was so cool to open the package this morning and see the iMAGNi logo on the book. I'm very proud of her. :)

If all goes to plan, there will be loads more stuff in the future. And if things keep going to plan, this will become bigger than just a lulu printing thing.
But for now, all i can say is well done TRiPPY. You're doing good, babes. ^_^

'eyyy, it's looking pretty swank. I was really surprised at the quality of lulu's stuff myself, but even just buying that calendar has made me want to work on getting something published e__e

I might get one of these a bit later on, money depending..

[Edit] Is that a cute little U.V I see? XD

: D Yeey

Something i always get excited over is thinking up front covers. I'm going to do a comic run of cheapish black and white manga (color cover), 48 or 50 pages (or something) per issue. Then after I've ammassed enough to fill a collectors edition I'll do it in full color. Because i do like my color i do.

The inner printing is sharp too, it tends to print darker/stronger than your source file though so always remember that when coloring.


The other thing to remember on that front is that if you're printing (and colouring in a program advanced enough to do such things), make sure you work in CYMK mode instead of RGB mode. It'll have to get converted somewhere along the line (because of how printers work) so you might as well do it yourself from the start to make sure the colours are as vivid and awesome as they can be.

(Stuff coloured in RGB and then just converted instead of working in CYMK from the start can come out looking much duller and muddier than it would otherwise. There is complicated stuff with colour gambits involved, but you don't really need to know about that, just that if printing, CYMK, if for screen, RGB.)

The book looks lovely. Very cute little drawings in it. Good luck with the other parts!

That's great, TRiP! I can attest to the 'front covers' thing.. I have some project or another that's been sitting around for a while; the thing I have the easiest time with is thinking up various covers --.--

If I'm ever going to log into that place again it'll be when i have more to show for it. And i wont be staying, just deleting my last journal and then adding links to my new work. Confused people will be sucked into my marketing trap and find themselves unable to resist spending. Or something. I'm not about to do the whole 'ROMG I'M LEAVING DA!!111' thing and then return to have people kiss my ass a few months later. People who do that piss me off.


Anyway, speaking of art i have no sodding idea how to move my shitloads of it to whereever I'm staying. This makes for an angry TRiPPY.

Thats great then as I shall buy one in the near future after I save up for it! ^__^

I never even heard of this Lulu before but she sure seems to be very handy!
