-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 :)
