Username: Arcanon
Version of Photoshop: CS6 full
Time zone: GMT (UK)

Previous work/experience: 17 years experience as a web developer, 14 years experience as a programmer, 15 years experience with photoshop, enjoyed manga and anime for 17 years, did cleaning and typesetting for Bleach for a couple of months, but stopped due to a massive change in my living arrangements (I no longer had reliable internet for a long time, and a demanding ex)
Any additional information you feel is relevant: none that comes to mind.

Hi Arcanon,

All you need is in that zip file.

If you are new to typesetting, please take a look at Typesetting 101

You have until Sep 21th to complete this test.

Thank you for applying! Please try out both our tankoubon (Volume) and magazine cleaning tests.
I suggest that you start with the tankoubon cleaning test first if you have limited experience working with manga.
The magazine cleaning test is for experienced cleaners (ie Kingdom), if you feel you're able to get results close to what our releases look like then please attempt it. If not then feel free to skip it.

Tankoubon: https://mega.nz/#!1093zKbC!AJiD4jLj9VeJpeUZ7mQ23DMaYsEwgIUQmW0aQRpSuPU
Magazine: https://mega.nz/#!Rhlw0TTA!rhBlmAFf4sBP6hS7OXuw8jWGfGP_KJ5XEX15PXbFVxY

In case you need some guidance of what to do or how to do it, I suggest you to read this:
Tankoubon test instructions: http://sensescans.com/index.php?topic=2813.0
Magazine cleaning guide: http://sensescans.com/index.php?topic=2814.0

Resize all tankoubon pages to 1400px height 72ppi and for Magazine pages 1200px height, 72ppi as the final image size.
Also, our Volume raws will not require topaz filtering. Please refrain from using it while working with the tankoubon test. And btw, there's no need to redraw.

When you are done, please contact me via PM with a link to your pages as .PSDs with a RAW layer, Clean layer, and another layer where you paint the bubbles white out, you do not need to send us back a copy of the raws or pages converted to JPG/PNGs.

Best of luck, if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

You have until Sep 23rd to complete this test.

I'll do that now then. It should be done in the next couple of hours.

If you want me to do cleaning, would you like me to do a cleaning test as well? That'll take me a bit longer, but I can probably get that done this evening or by tomorrow evening.

EDIT:: -_-' well I certainly feel foolish. I had this page loaded since yesterday morning, so I hadn't refreshed to see that Xyros had given me a cleaning test. As I said, I'll try and get that done tonight.
