An introduction

I’ve recently really gotten into Japanese Manga and anime art. But my desire to draw well stemmed far back into my early childhood.

Try as I might, I could never get my pictures right. It would either be a problem with the eyes, the ears, the hair, or the proportions. Add to that, shaking hands would mess up the work. So, unsurprisingly, it was years before I tried again.

But this time, instead of conventional art, i’m going down the manga route; and this time, instead of figuring it all out on my own… i’m going to observe the established artists, watch their youtube tutorials, buy their books, and then implement the rules of the game.

At the time of writing this first post, i’ve already done a few pictures which i will showcase in order of time in this blog. My first ever manga picture though, was only completed in the beginning of this month (January 2012).

This blog is my journey. You’re welcome to read along as I try to pick up on what I learn. The truth be told, I never thought i’d try to draw again. I guess it’s my interest in manga that’s giving me the enthusiasm to try again. Perhaps, this blog will help you too.
