Welcome to Twelve Gates

Welcome to Twelve Gates!

Unite. Create. Deliver. Twelve Gates.

Unite artists.
Create manga.
Deliver the message.

Uniting artists to create manga and deliver a message about our awesome God!


Anyone may join the group!

However, please read about our vision first. We are not your ordinary group!

Also, keep in mind that we're a team here. Others help you, so please help others!

And if you join, be kind, in and out of the group. If you're a member, keep our name clean!


We accept only original artwork and pages based on your original manga (at any stage in development).

Both one shots and series with multiple chapters are acceptable.

Short manga strips (including 4-koma) are allowed but only if it is related to a larger original manga project.

Fan art is not allowed. Miscellaneous Christian images or comic strips, even if they are in the style of Japanese manga, aren't allowed.

Please visit some of our awesome affiliates for that!

When submitting, be sure to check out the details of each folder and make sure you submit to the right one. This is helpful not only for us, but it also makes sure people can help you the way you want to be helped.

Read here for guidelines on what is acceptable and what is not.

NOTE: There is a five submissions per day limit in any folder. The purpose of this is to keep from flooding inboxes in order to allow members to keep up with comments and such without being overwhelmed.


TG's favorites will serve as a collection of resources and tutorials for creating manga! If you know of any great resources you'd like to share, suggest them to our favorites!


First of all, THANK YOU to all of you for your hard work and dedication! Thank you for staying strong and making manga, thank you for volunteering, donating, and praying, and thank you for being a most awesome community of peeps!

I believe there are a few areas where we can work hard to become stronger so that we can more readily deliver a powerful message in the manga world. Here is one way I believe we can kick butt more than ever before!

We need to reach out to others.

This one is pretty straight forward. I know from experience that many of you came to TG because you were invited by someone else. This is true of just about any ministry. People will trust what trusted people trust. Follow that? If you think something is awesome and tell people you know about it, they are more likely to think it's awesome, too. They're more likely to give it a try.

If you know people who like manga, then recommend TG to them.
If you know people who like MAKING manga that points others to Christ, then invite them to join us.

If they say no, that's fine. But if they say yes… you could be inviting them into something that radically changes their lives, our lives, and other people's lives. You never know what God can do through a single life. Don't count anyone out!

To those of you who are advertising, sharing links, talking to your friends, and shouting from the rooftops, you have our deepest gratitude!

This is wonderful! :)  This is a God-send.  I am so glad you invited me to this Christian environment.  I've had thoughts of doing a manga for my books, but I just needed an artist.  When the time is right, I'm glad I have a place to look.  Thank you! :)

So... I have this comic thing that I'd like to post, but, it's colored. Can I post it or not?

Yes, you can share them here! If they are manga pages, please make sure they go in the "Completed Works - Manga" folder, though.

"And in this I give advice: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago; but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have."--2 Corinthians 8:10-11

then why are you not completing your manga? "but now you also must complete the doing of it"... just curious.
Half-Elf Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Student Artist
It's not born out of "giving up" or burning out...It has to do with the direction my life is taking and how God will use me. I think God used this time, but I don't think it's the longterm plan for my life. My desire and my intentions aren't there, and I just don't think it's what the big picture is for me. But to those who are called, and are wearing down in their calling: Don't give up.
