Welcome to the icontest community for manga icons, mangaicontest! Aptly named for its purpose, this LiveJournal community is maintained by its founder and mod chopstickicons and co-moderator, sakura_201. Members can submit to the themes or vote by screen commenting, so posting access is not needed.
Mangaicontest is an icontest where participants submit icons that use manga pictures as their subject, and are made according to the weekly themes. Any type of manga is fine, be it shoujo or shounen!
Manga (漫画) is the Japanese word for comics and print cartoons; outside of Japan, it usually refers specifically to Japanese comics. Manga developed from a mixture of ukiyo-e and Western styles of drawing, and took its current form shortly after World War II. It comes mainly in black and white, except for the covers and maybe the first few pages.
