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 :)

-About Me: Hemm, well, nice to meet you all ^^ I'm Littlepooch, but call me Poochy :D And thank you so much to Jen and Ike for creating and letting me join this lovely world! But about me.. I guess I really got into anime/manga around when I joined (almost three years ago...Wow..). I LOVE shojo XD; I know not many people like it compared to shonen, but I've always really loved the cutesy style it had. What elseeee... I like pokemon (a lot) and I read manga more than I watch anime. As far as my art work goes, I do digital more because my traditional looks weird.. I've always liked drawing, but got more into it when I started watching anime and read manga, and it became even more of my hobby when I joined theO. Mmmm....... Oh yeah, and I know not many digital artists do this, but I draw the picture on paper first, scan it, and then line art and color it on SAI usually. I can not use a pen tablet to save my life.

I think that's all I have right now. Again, it's lovely meeting all of you!

About me huh? :)

Alrighty! ^O^
I first began drawing back in 2000, when I was in Year 2 of Primary School. Back then, Pokemon was really popular among the students and I became a fan of it myself (and still am ^^). At home, I would draw pictures of Pokemon and I would show them to my friends. After that, I started getting requests to draw Pokemon pictures for them.

It was after that; I began to love drawing, creating and designing. Along the years, my techniques and styles started to blossom and change. In 2008, I changed my style from drawing and colouring traditionally, to using lead pencil and kept my drawings greyscale and added shading.

Alright, here's a little bit about me so you can get to know me better!

-Art Style: Traditional
-Favourite Tools: Copic Markers, Micron sakura pens, .5 mechanical pencil
And I like to try a little bit of everything: paints, coloured pencils, fabric paints, even digital (though I'm not good at it yet xD)

-About Me: Well I think I've always liked creating art since my mom used to be a graphic designer^^ In school, I liked to be as creative as I could but I never got into manga till the beginning of last summer. I used to like the style, but I never stuck with it long enough to learn anything. I couldn't even draw people. I was scared to try so I just stuck with realistic animal drawings. Last summer, I worked really hard on learning anime style though.A lot of good things happened to me: I started reading manga, I bought myself Copic markers, and I stumbled across theO while looking at fan arts. I'm really glad I joined theO as I've learnt a lot already and my confidencd has really been boosted by all your feedback and friendship! Thankyou^^ I think one day I'd like to learn more digital artwork and buy myself a tablet, but for now I just want to keep improving and experimenting with traditional :)
