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!


Happy 3rd anniversary, Twelve Gates Manga magazine!

Please check out the January 2015 issue of the magazine!
And check out our new Twitter account, too!

We've come a long way since we've started, haven't we? Thank you to those of you on dA who support, submit, and work hard to eventually join our roster of magazine artists. I am so very thankful for your hard work and for your desire to see the world changed through the use of the gifts you've been given.

Thank you to all of you for all that you do!

When I look back at how Twelve Gates started… what we're doing now seemed impossible. We were only a ragtag group of artists who were trying, with all of the unique skills that each of us brought to the table, to put this thing together and make it work. Three years later, we have been joined by many incredible artists and have expanded our website, our magazine, and our reach.

I believe, without a doubt, that God loves to move most in situations where only God can be given the credit for the unimaginable things that occur. Twelve Gates is an example of this. How small we are by ourselves! And how small of a team at the start!! But we believed that our BIG, GREAT God could use whatever we brought, no matter how small, to change the world. Our faith and determination never to give up have allowed God to grow us and use us in ways we never imagined.

There was fear. There was hesitation. There was doubt.
Could God use someone like me?
Would God use something like this?

But there was also faith. A hope. A step forward. An action.
And so, all of this began with an audacious leap.

And I tell you, we're going to do it again.

Through guidance and prayer and a belief that God has confirmed where we go from here, we've determined to make a new step forward.

2015 will mark the final year of the online Twelve Gates Manga magazine.
2016 will reveal a new Twelve Gates website featuring bi-monthly chapter releases in an online database.
2017 will bring about the release of the new PRINTED Twelve Gates Manga magazine.

Considering the time, resources, knowledge, and experience this requires, this sounds impossible. But if God is for us, who can be against us? Right?

Here's to another audacious leap.
Here's to another 3 spectacular years.
Here's to something even greater.

Let's see God do the impossible. Again.

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?
bbqbert Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
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
