This is more like my personal blog and things manga related that I like to talk about.

Manga studies

My manga studies are also growing strong and I am learning a lot that is easing me into my own manga. I think when I start making mine, like for real, I'm gonna have both traditional and digital artwork (the manga itself will be completely digital though).

Oh! I ended up reading this really cool fan manga on DA. It's called "DBON." It's this cool crossover between 4 popular mangas; Dragonball Z, Bleach, One Piece, and Naruto. It's a well written and you can tell they did they research on it. The characters are so much like their characters in the way they talk, mannerisms and more. I didn't know much about One Piece, but now I want to no more.

Thanks for's pretty lengthy.


I just got a message that I've been promoted to Senior Otaku. Why does it feel so sudden? lol Well, Not sure what it means, but I guess I accept it. It doesn't feel like I've been on here that long but it's been a year since I registered so wow! Well, I'm working on some art so be expecting something from me soon.


I'm studying a lot of art! I feel like everyday this week is a trip to the library and checking out some new book. I found several books manga/comic related. There's one in particular that I just found called Art of Drawing Manga by Sergi Camara a...

Manga Practicing...1

So, I've been practicing inking in manga studio. I'm starting to get the hang of it. I sketch pretty well in the program, but inking is a bit different, plus my mind still wants to work like I'm in photoshop. I do well with inking in photoshop as is, but manga studio tools will give me more the look and style I want for manga pages in particular. So still experimenting, but yeah, all is going well.

Also, I have this book on character design and how to do that. It's really helpful and I've gotten more story for a fan manga I've been working on. I'm still mastering the basics of anatomy, but I have a good handle on it. I've been stalling some when it comes to making manga (was a bit intimidated), but I'm going to have to break my deal and experiment making manga pages so I will submit manga pages when they are complete and improve from there (makes sense?).

I'm also working on fan art I still owe some people so forgive me for being so leisure and I hope to bring to you some great art.
