Thanks guys! I need to really find time to work on my colouring/rendering, I feel like that's my weakest area. But for now I'm just gonna stick to what I know as I'm getting back into the swing of things. In the meantime, things are slow unfortunately but here's something I've been chipping away at.

WIP character design for a pet game project I've been working on. I'm making a series of these so you can definitely expect more to come!

Name: Half-Dragon Sael
Class: Warrior
Element: Fire

Ahh yess Kiyohime! I already gave her chocolates in the last valentines event on FGO, this year I need to grind chocolates for all those servants I missed.

Your work looks fantastic by the way, very professional!

Well there are effective and ineffective ways to use social media to promote your work. It might be that you haven't been using social media effectively, if you want I can recommend a book about SEO and E-commerce that is really helpful for understanding how to take advantage of social media. It talks about things like posting in the right places, search engine optimization, following similar artists to attract new audiences from those artists, etc. If you don't want to invest the time into doing the research on how this all works though (which is understandable because it definitely takes time), I'd advise trying to post your work in as many places as possible.

Instead of just having it on Tapas, or deviantart, promote your comic by posting your work on places like Pixiv, Artstation, etc etc. Try to spread it as much as possible. You can also try doing collaborations with other artists, viewer giveaways, stream yourself on twitch drawing a page or two of your comic, start a youtube channel. Most of these won't see huge returns individually, but all together they may draw more eyes to your work. At the end of the day, gaining traction is all about consistently pushing your work in as many places as possible.

I've also found moderate success as well in some discords for different fandoms. Fan art i've done for things like Epic7 or Fate Grand Order has landed me on occasion a few commissions here and there, then through word of mouth other people hear about my work and it can grow that way too. You could try something similar as well. Either way, good luck with your comic!

I'm going to echo what Keanfox said, as an artist myself I have collaborated on occasion with writers for free but most of the time it just ends up stopping after a few weeks as well. I guess to expand on his point and other points that have been made though, I think it helps to set a clear goal and be forthright about your intentions.

Most of the time I realized that writers looking for artists here weren't really looking for long term collaborations but instead just wanted to share ideas and do smaller projects. That might be conjecture on my part but I feel like that's why most collab projects tend to fizzle out after a couple weeks. That being said, it never hurts to sneak in some art practice for yourself, someone else mentioned that just having enough basics skills to put your ideas on paper visually can help a lot with the creative process when making a manga.

Good hustle Soup! Your output is impressive as always and browsing through the work that I've missed I can definitely tell you've made steady progress. Keep it up man, as soon as I get some time I might try my hand at some of these endurance studies!

It's hard to say, my favorites change all the time but if I had to pick one now it would be Queen Julianna, a character I recently designed. I love knightly characters and I had a lot of fun working on her armor. Her story is that she was the princess of a country that was falling apart due to her mother being an incompetent ruler. She forcefully took the throne from her mother in a violent coup and has since devoted herself to restoring her beloved homeland to it's former glory through conquest and war.

Thanks! Sorry about being missing in action guys, I was very busy the first month of January this year but now I've managed to scrounge myself some free time. Didn't draw much unfortunately but here are a few sketches I've been warming up with to get back into the swing of things!


Heres some Kill la Kill fanart that I don't think I've posted yet, but this ones a bit older as well as something else I left half finished that I'm planning on going back to!



Anyway glad to be back again, lookin forward to another year with you lads!

Oh man more people doing this 1000 sketches challenge, I don't know if I have the stamina to keep up with you guys. It's motivating though seeing all of you push through this trial, maybe I'll do a 100 sketches or something myself

lol apologies, I'll make some lewds soon instead!

Here's my next pass at the challenge! A colored sketch, 2nd pass at the previous image.
The context is Satsuki and Ryuko hanging out at Mako's place. Finally having some time to themselves, Satsuki makes Ryuko the katsudon she's been practicing for a while now and to her delight, Ryuko loves it! I enjoyed this challenge and might do more!

Here's my first pass at it! A super quick sketch I wanted to squeeze in before the monster hunting begins tonight. I think I might do a second pass at this!

Definitely going to draw a better katsudon haha

These are really good Suuper, definitely a huge improvement over previous work. The poses are cute, the outfits are cute and the general vibe is very light and energetic, I love it!

I run a little art server for a number of members from here, though it isn't specifically an MR server. It's mostly a place for people to hang out but also post their artwork for feedback once in a while.

Wild designs man, I love the variety. These were supposed to be for a game right? What kind of game is it going to be?
