    Question Why did you start drawing manga?

    The title is self-explanatory, what's the reason you started to draw manga?

    My reason: I'm working on a game project and want to learn to draw manga...and eventually GC to make special scenes.

    Well, it all started when I became fasinated with 2d games and their sprites.
    So many different styles each showing differences and tastes.

    I've decided that I wanted to learn how to create these "sprites" and use them for various purposes.
    But soon I realized that I can't draw worth crap, so I came to the internet, looking for help. I happend to be a anime fanatic at the time(toned down a bit; I read em' more than I watch nowadays), so I checked various tutorials on how to draw my own characters and learn how to draw the basics.

    When I stumbled opon here. Using the tutorial, I've been able to increase my artistic talents.
    But it's still far from the goal that I want to acheive. So far, I've been making decent progress.

    I ever loved the manga art style, so much better than the full colored comics u_u" Too much information in one thing, manga is cleaner for the view (at least some of them xD)

    Because I fell in love with the style. So simple yet expressive, plus it was easier to doodle manga when I was little then attempt realism. It seems more open-ended than some other art forms.

    I've been drawing snce I was a toddler. Then I started making (my own) Pokemon Cards back when I was in Kindergarden and 1st Grade. Then Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Then I picked up a Shonen Jump when I was in 3rd Grade. And I thought it was cool, and I said, "Hey, I want to do this." So ... Yeah, that's it.

    Making trading cards is so fun! Especially with popular games like Pokemon.

    i watched [I]Sailor Moon[I] when i was little, but I thought it and Pokemon were American creations then... then my cousin explained everything to me, and bought me the first few books of the Tokyo Mew Mew series. I fell in love and wanted to experiment with this new way of drawing people. I think I was about 14 when I started drawing anime, something like that
