Amazing! I have never seen anyone use screentones before (or B5 paper) – it’s just amazing. Marika’s artwork is phenomenal – so polished and professional. I wish I had gotten to see videos like this when I first started drawing manga style back in ’02. It would have been inspiring and motivating. Eh, but such is life.
[DISCLAMER] I don’t know anything about the story line of Grimoire other than it’s a fantasy manga story with demons, so please view the following links with discretion. ^^;

While I was journaling earlier this morning it suddenly dawned on me that maybe the reason I haven’t gotten very far with comic creation is because I’m really not a cartoonist. Maybe my strength is actually in a different book, a children’s book, namely a picture book.
When I thought about it that way, some things about my art habits started making sense. In particular, whenever I plot out stories, it’s never in panels and rarely in sequential art – it’s usually a picture with text. Also, black and white doesn’t motivate me in the least. Color does.
Illustrating picture books also falls in line with where I want to go in life. I want to settle down and have a family someday. Being a manga artist really isn’t child friendly. However, a picture book illustrator is. Just like when I realized that I was a traditional artist – it just feels right.
Now on to the hard part: soul searching, prayer, research and possibly development…

Been watching some tutorials from BlueRoseArkelle on YouTube and decided to give her dark to light technique a try. :> S’okay for a first attempt, however I’m really not sure where to put shading on the hair.

Down To Earth
Did you think that your feet had been bound
By what gravity brings to the ground?
Did you feel you were tricked
By the future you picked?
Well, come on down Continue reading
