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 :)

>Art Theft, Tracing, and Referencing!<

Hey Otakus!

I found this very interesting article posted by NekoTenshiEmi and I think it'd make a good post/discussion for the Artist Cubby :D
Its about a very sensitive topic for some artists who aren't sure whether they can use reference pictures or if tracing is art theft. Its been a topic that people have asked me about lately for advice. I find this post to be very adequate, so please take a look~

The post can be reached with this link: Art Theft, Tracing, and Referencing: A Guide

Feel free to comment on this issue.

KyraChan Profile

Ohai ._. I am Kyra, and I am glad to be part of such a wonderful community.

Country: 'Murica.
Age: 16

Anime/Manga: My faves are Welcome to the NHK, Death Note, Kuroshitsuji, Ou No Exorcist, Soul Eater, and Deadman Wonderland. My "Big 3" fave is Naruto.

Favorite genres: Mostly anything dark, whether it's dark emotionally (Welcome to the NHK), dark ideologically (Deadman Wonderland) or dark aesthetically (Kuroshitsuji). Anything with mystery or intrigue is also fair game. I will, however, try (and possibly like) any anime (OHSHC).

Art Style: I like to blur the lines between traditional anime and realism, with a few digital touch-ups to make it look more beautiful. I have also dabbled in acrylics, photography, and non-2D art such as stained glass, music, makeup, and writing.

Tools of the Trade: I generally use pencils, basic pens, and prismacolor pencils, with for my touchups.

About me: It was in seventh grade in which I decided I wanted to be a great artist, whether I get discovered or not. Much work and practice leads me here.

Non-art-related shtuff about me is that I love anything dark (as previously stated). I love romance, whether it be straight or shounen-ai. I am interested in psychology and writing, and plan to become an author. I am generally calm and mature, but once you get to know me, you'll see the little child in me come out.
