Ashl3y123 (Richard A. Ray)



It was about time I added a face to my blog!

Over here on the left, I added an attempted self-portrait of myself done in the Japanese manga style. This was drawn 2 days ago from my perspective (that’ll be 4th Feb 2012), and this marks roughly a month since I started on this Journey.

At present, I haven’t caught up with updating this blog to where I am currently, but I’m working on it!

Not only will I describe what I did, what helped me, what inspired me, etc on each and every picture I draw, I will also post the very resources I used to help me. This could be a link to an article that an established artist wrote, a youtube tutorial, even books that I’ve read.

Please check out my introductory Post where I explain in greater detail the purpose of this blog and why I’m teaching myself to draw manga.

If you’re interested in fast-tracking to my latest drawings, check out my tumblr blog (Ashl3y’s Manga).

More about me coming soon!………..

In the meantime, I highly recommend that you check out ‘Enjoy the journey.’ In this page, I’ve set out the road-map for the journey ahead for the benefit of my readers. The page also helps to structure the blog and with it, you can see where I came from in the journey, where I’m at, and where I’m going!

Well worth a look!

If you like what you’ve seen so far, please help me by recommending this blog to others who may like manga art, those who are learning it (maybe they’ll get inspiration, perhaps they may even be better than me and take courage 🙂 ) or those who are just simply interested in seeing someone trying to improve day by day.
