Hey! To anyyone watching, I've decided to extend my break from Deviantart to work on a 12 page short for The Silent Manga Audition. The contest ends in March, so I'm gonna be working like mad to get it done. However, since the new phone I recently bought is not a piece of crap, I've created an Instagram for pictures of my sketches, which is WAY less time-consuming than having to scan everything in and post it to Deviantart. So, for the time being that's where I'll be. I also need to loosen up my sketches and become less addicted to showing every little thing I do, which is kinda contradictory, but with Instagram I can experiment without showing the whole page. I want to put some of the fun back into my art which I've been lacking a lot of lately.
Will Terrell discusses that here:
www.pencilkings.com/will-terre…

I want to try styles from some out-of-the-box creators and properties like:
Maddie C. @ verticalart.tumblr.com
Daisuke Nakayama @ Ugat.tumblr.com
James Harvey
Jamie Hewlett
Alexandre "Zedig" Diboine
Ulysses Malasagne (KAIROS)
Kim Jung Gi
FLCL
Tengen Toppa
Kill La Kill
Revolution Girl Utena & other 90's anime
HannakDraws
Nate Simpson
S.A.M Xiao Shang
American cartoonists:
Tyson Hesse, Creature Box, Ryan Ottley
And a whole bunch of french artists
Olivier Coipel
And of course, Moebius.

In short, I just want to kind of break away from this manga style for a while, study and dissect different kinds of art, then come back with something new to add to my manga style. Something that would make it more textured, or flavored if you will. 'Cause a major problem I see with a lot anime-influenced american comic artists, new or old, is that manga/anime seems to be their predominating influence. Which isn't a bad thing... until backgrounds are concerned. It's just that those who diversify, become much more well-rounded over time. I feel it's really a matter of storytelling influences, but that's another topic for another journal.
Anyway you can find me here:

See ya later!

Man, thans for your fave.

Also, you have a taste in your favourite art folder, that is totally mine also.
So we have the same visual taste. I like when I find other people from which I can have a  short list of art from the other artists.
Thank you for that!

Keep on drawing. with such great inspiration ideal, you will reach a similar level.
