I'm Socky7 (because unfortunately "Socky" is already taken ). I'm a 13 year old boy and live in America. I have read very few manga, and haven't watched too much anime either, but I'd like to be able to draw manga-style. I actually had an account here a long time ago (which I no longer remember), back when I claimed I would make my own manga to post on the internet. But I really wasn't motivated enough and I ended up quitting pretty soon. This time I plan to make more achievable goals, so instead of jumping right up and declaring I would make a manga, I have been practicing by simply drawing my favorite anime characters based on pictures. I plan to eventually graduate to drawing these characters without the pictures in front of me, and then in a new pose altogether, before I actually get to creating characters on my own and developing a style. Luckily my sister has experience with art and is able to help me with some things. I also plan on reading more manga to study the artwork, techniques, layout, etc. I literally started just a few days ago so I haven't had much progress, but I have been getting used to face proportions and simply drawing manga style.
My strong point, assuming I were to attempt to make a manga for the Internet or something like that, is storywriting. However, my terrible art weighs that down, so I really want to get better and take this seriously unlike the last time. My supplies are very limited so far but I plan on obtaining things I need before long.
Some side notes about me are that I'm learning Japanese from home (you probably think I'm a weeaboo by now) which is something I put a lot of time into, I love to write short stories, and I suck at sports ^_^

Thank you and I look forward to working with you all!
