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!

"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.

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.

Wow!! Some friends of mine referred me here, and I didn't even know such a group existed. <3 I've always loved manga, and wondered how I could use it to glorify God and send a positive message to people. It's great to find people with the same mind and interests. Is it possible to join the group without having any manga to show yet? I'm working on making manga, but have never made one before.

I'll pray for you guys!! God bless!

Wow!! I'm glad word got to you and that you're here now!! That's awesome! You can definitely join, even if you're just starting out! We'd love to help encourage you as you begin to make manga, no matter where you are in the process! I hope that you'll keep working hard on whatever God's called you to do and that you'll be able to start AND finish your race, whatever it may be!

Good luck as you get going!!
