I'm PirateHogs, currently a freshman in high school.
Some background about me: I've been introduced to manga at a young age, probably when I was around 8 or 9 years old. I've been drawing in this style for about 5 years, but stopped drawing all together because of my depression. Now I'm better, and I can't wait to improve again. Although I'm kinda drifting away from the manga style, it's still an obvious influence in my work.
Oh, and I've been a member on the old forum before, but that was a while ago. I'm glad to be back :]
