First off, I've been trying to figure out just how to write a christian science fiction/fantasy manga series. It's going to have some fantasy characters in it as well. My first I'll be posting more on this series soon! The first of the story, however; is going to be centered around the planet earth, and the human race, as well as an extra Celestial race call the Ennoukai (angels). Also, I wondered how to center it around Christian values, which I was planning on doing? How do you write a science fiction christian novel? Alot of the time, Christian publishers have rejected such novels with extra terrestrial life and futuristic technology. But I say you can write it in such a way that it does not go against any Biblical teachings at all. For example, the Bible speaks about the 1000 year reign of Christ after the second coming. When we see this happening in our story, what could we imagine taking place at this time? What about after the 1000 year reign and the New Earth? What would happen then after Satan is defeated, and the human race is saved for good? Of course, exploration time!!! God made the universe for us to explore, expand, and discover! It seems that the more we discover now, the more we find out about how much we don't know. This is the kind of format I plan to use in my Science Fiction Novel with a Biblical twist. I plan to post the story on www.wattpad.com/ezmyreld.
Secondly, I want to talk about my art and background style of choice in this series. First, I want to talk about my greatest inspiration on that. I am a big fan of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball series (aside from the crude jokes on the first series), Dragon Quest, and Chrono Trigger video game series. I love his art style, and I am thinking about borrowing but modifying it. Kind of use it to come up with some of my own ideas and put my style into it. It definitely wouldn't hurt as long as I come up with my own characters and story. The only downside on it is I don't want to be accused of plagiarism or copyright infringement, so yes, modifying this art style is a must. But his art and story series is the greatest inspiration to me. One thing I like about his stories is how he melds the dinosaur stone age and futuristic technology with fantasy/scifi plots. I think that I may use that type of world for my story as well. I think it's awesome! I also love the Dragon Ball Online game created with his anime story in it, and the character interactions especially. It really inspires me to get with the program on my new manga fantasy/scifi series and start using my own creative juices. I will be posting my new manga art on it here soon! If anyone has any suggestions on this, be sure to comment below! I'll be keeping everyone posted on this!
