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!


We Strive For Excellence: Our job is too important to settle for "average." In order to be the most successful, we will give our very best at all times.

This statement is in the Twelve Gates Code. I'm drawing attention to it because it might be something that we often take for granted when we get into routines, when we get distracted, or when we get busy…  Yet this is arguably one of the most important statements we should live by.

According to the Bible, God's people are called to give their top 10%. We know this as the tithe, or the first 10% of our finances. However, in Biblical times, it was the first of anything that anyone had. It was the first, and it was the best. It was the best of the people, the best of the herds, and the best of the treasures.

When God asked for something, He expected it to be excellent.

No one at this group has attained perfection, so we can't give God the best manga ever created. But we can give God the best manga WE ever created. And that's what we should always be striving for. However, like every other aspect of our lives as imperfect humans, we need to realize that we haven't reached our best yet.

There are a lot of absolutely amazing artists at Twelve Gates who have been gifted in absolutely astounding ways. But like any gift, this gift needs to be unpacked before it can be used. As with any muscle, it needs to be used in order to develop. With a lot of practice, with a lot of struggle, and with a lot of dedication, we can build on the solid foundation that we already have and make it into something even greater. We can give God our best now, and we can also devote our time and energy to giving God something even greater, something even more excellent, further down the road.

May we never become complacent.

There is no real fail-proof path toward improvement. This journey is yours, and you'll have to find the methods that work best for you. However, we believe that with prayer and hard work, you can become an even more amazing artist than you already are today.

You will never attain perfection. But in the pursuit of it… You will become greater. Strive for excellence in everything you do.

Live a life worthy of your calling.

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
