WORLD WILL BE RECEIVING A RENO-JOB AS SOON AS TIME ALLOWS! Thankyou for your support and patience!

Hello and welcome to MangaKid and Ikemarth's Artist Cubby!
We hope you all enjoy your time here!

This is a world Ikemarth and I have created after our dear friend Angel Satina gave us this great idea! We wanted to create a place for artists to share their methods, experiences, tips/advice, ect. Its like a club in a community where artist friends can join even closer together^^ We will be posting anything such as our own step-by-step process of creating art, tutorials, art notices/progress, cool artistic videos, before and after pics of artwork, and simple tips as well as answer any questions that you post or have! We hope everyone, including us, will learn new artistic ways and become even more creative together as we experience each others' style. For new artists, we hope to help inspire you and motivate you to continue drawing!

Note: Check out the Cubby's sister world: The Otaku Fellowship by Aryia!!
If you are looking for tutorials on how to make wallies and ecards, please visit our friend Aria Sky's cool world The Ultimate Guide to Creating.
And if you're looking for a neat project to do, check out snow fox's Collaboration Nation!
And for additional awesome art tutorials, definitely check out ekaknr's Artist Cafe!

If you have any questions, feel free to PM MangaKid or Ikemarth! We are accepting guest posters, if you feel that you'd like to join and share your tips with the Otaku!

Rules+Guidlines: -Nothing inapropriate.
-We'd like you all to shorten your posts to new pages but you DO NOT have to shorten your profiles. Please post your profiles normally. We want the other posts to be shortened though as it'll be a lot more organized that way.
-You can post a chibi at the top of your posts if you'd like, but please make sure its small (approx. 300x300 pixels. A bit bigger then that is alright too.)
-No putting down anyone or making them feel uncomfortable (of course, we're all good friends here so I don't think we need to worry about this^^)
-If you join, you are not obligated to post (even though we'd LOVE to see posts from ya!). Feel free to post anytime or not post at all. The main thing is if you enjoy the club, learn new things, and make new friends :)

Artist Profile: superstarpanou

Hello there! I'm superstarpanou also known as Panou (pah-noo)~! I'm so grateful to be part of this wonderful world~ I hope I could be of help to others with the limited knowledge that I have! Feel free to take a glance at my profile~

-Country: United States
-Current Age: 19

-Manga (I love reading manga much more than watching it~ <3): Kingyo Sou, D.N.Angel, Akagami no Shirayuki Hime, Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro, dear, Alice 19th, Land of the Blindfolded, Flower in a Storm, Kimi to Scandal, Beast Master, Hanatsuki Hime, Juvenile Orion, Merupuri, and many one-shots that I love~
-Anime (Egh, I need to watch more of anime ^^'): Toradora!, Lovely Complex, Claymore, Hellsing, School Rumble, GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Wallflower
-Favorite Genres: Romance, Comedy, Fantasy, Action, Suspense, and a bit of Horror (especially for general movies, not much for manga/anime)
-Video Games: Fire Emblem, Harvest Moon, Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side, Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES version), Treasure of the Rudras

-Art Style: Traditional & Digital, I'm such a varied artist~ xD
-Tools of the Trade: Wacom Intuos4 Small, Adobe Photoshop CS3, SAI Paint tool, 0.3, 0.5, 0.7 lead pencils, white polymer and kneading erasers, Steadler pigment liners (I'm running out of these D8), Prismacolor and varied kiddie-brand colored pencils. Those are my basics, but I'll also use paints and other mediums depending on what I'm drawing or making.

-About Me: I'm Panou, but you may call me whatever suits you~ I've been called Superstar, Panana, Panski, Pastry; there's so many nicknames I have~ xD I'm a middle child out of 10 kids. My hobbies include drawing, taking naps, jewelry-making, crafting, sewing, and baking; basically anything I can do with my hands, I can do it~! xD My favorite colors are pink, black, and red. Silk brand chocolate soymilk and black tea are my ultimate comfort drinks, and my favorite foods include sushi and sweet & sour pork~ Personality-wise, I'm usually calm, polite, loyal, considerate, and reliable, and I tend to treat others the way I would want to be treated~ ;D I may be too polite and gullible for my own good too~ ^^' So don't tease me too much! QwQ I'm not easily offended either, so don't hesistant to talk to me with informal speech or weird kinky topics~ xDDD *laughs*

I've always been drawing for as long as I can remember. You can say that I'm the official artist in my family~ xD I haven't drawn anime until around 5th grade, when I saw my older sister's anime drawings, and I got really inspired by it! You can say that my older sister was my first inspiration ever. ^^ I also give a lot of credit to one of my close friends during middle school. She always had a BUNCH of manga that I could reference to, and that made me improve in a steady, self-taught pace of my own.

Thank you for taking the time to read my artist profile! I hope I can be of service! Let's get along now~ ^^
