Okay, I'm still working on the Man in Black (Sheesh, body positioning is so difficult to settle on), BUT I did finish this beaut. The kimono detailing and shading killed my hand, but it was all worth it to complete this x3 Honestly this is probably has become one of my favorite pieces to sketch, so thanks for giving my the opportunity to darw this. It was really fun and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Okay, so I'm a pretty traditional artist in the sense I've ONLY really worked with a pencil and paper (then I ink it so the lines pop). I don't do color and I still don't know how to digitize my work yet. BUT, I still did some concept art. All of them aren't done, but I thought I'd post the ones I've finished.

Also, I like to sketch out my character's faces before doing the whole body pic. So I've got just head pictures without the clothes, but I'll be adding the outfits when I finish the other full body sketches. Anyway, here you go, let me know what you think :)

Alrighty then! I'll check those out x3 This gives me a general ball park of where I can start. I didn't even see the Develop Your Story board so thanks a million, I'll just mosey my way over there and give it a peak.

One last question, so for the Art Gallery thing, you said I should keep all my art in a single gallery (which makes sense, you don't want it all spread out). What if I have, like, a ton of art pieces I want to share. Though I have a primary art style I started to use, my art style is versatile and I want to show the different art styles I've done/can do. Would a single gallery be just a post, or is it done differently? I don't want to end up accidentally making a weird giant post.

Sweet! I'll post there as soon as I can. They aren't quite tutorials, but methods I use frequently when writing or sketching. Okay, so I've poked around the site a bit but honestly since this is my first time doing anything like this I'm a little nervous and have no clue where to start =_= any other suggestions on where this newbie should start?

Reading/watching/playing a verity of genres has definitely has broadened my horizons when it comes to developing characters. It’s   interesting to see how the creators of a series make their characters and how complex some can be beneath the surface. There are character types that all fall under some categories and you can see similar traits within character types throughout different genres, (the self-sacrificing hero, the lone wolf, the innocent flower, and etc.). However, there are elements to a character that make them different than the others similar to their personality. Their past and relationships (or lack of) are another key element to how their personality develops.

I’ve always found personalities and psychology fascinating. Though it’s not something I want to pursue as a profession, I still have dabbled in it to get to understand a little of how people think. It’s so interesting how different everyone’s mind set is. 5 people can experience the same exact event all differently. Though I can’t truly understand someone, I always keep my mind open to how others think. Even terrible people. I try to think from their perspective and that helps me with my characters. There are a lot of things I know I would never be able to experience, so reading/watching/playing different things allows me to get a good idea of how someone in that position would react. I don’t know if that makes any sense, but it’s something I find interest in. A friend of mine writes stories too, and I often help him flesh out his characters because I like to think from different angles.

Wow, I should stop before I keep prattling on xD I was going to start writing a ton of tips I use, but I think that would be suited for another post, rather than on my introduction post. While character making is my strength, the biggest thing I struggle with is story writing. I can write a few chapters, and have key piece events down, but putting everything together is a struggle for me. It’s one of the reasons I’ve reached out (beginning with this site), because I’m tired of being stuck with my story >:( I hope to find some assistance, and in turn maybe help someone else in the process.

Thanks everyone for the welcome! I have to transfer a lot of my works onto my computer because I'm pretty old school when it comes to sketching. Gimme a pencil and paper over an electronic drawing pad any day. However, I've recently acquired an electronic drawing pad so I've been playing with it and tracing in some of my work so I'm hopefully planning to get some of my work up as soon as possible! If any of you need assistance with fleshing out characters (or creating them) don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to help :)

As for the Manga/Anime I like, I tend to dabble in everything. Though the majority of what I tend to read are the Fantasy/Supernatural, Action, Adventure genres. It really depends on the story, but I've gotten around to a lot of different manga. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm always ready to experience a new series. As a person who is trying to create their own manga, I'm always reading/watching new things to expand my own ideas. 

My all time favorite series has to be Berserk. Though crude, the artwork is beautifully detailed in almost every panel and once you look past all the gore and R-rated things, the story is just so heart wrenching. I have a ton of other series I love, but if I start listing all of them I think I'd be flagged for spamming xD

Hello everyone! My name is Florence and I'm an aspiring Manga artist/writer. My primary strength is sketching and creating characters; their personalities, backstories, and interpersonal connections. I am currently creating my own fantasy world and have a general story laid out, however I am struggling with the details within the story line and am stuck. I came to this forum to possibly find a co-writer as well as aid anyone else who is in need of an artist for character creation. I'm also able to read and edit written pieces of story line if you need assistance. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and sharing in your enjoyment of Anime/Manga :) I can do different manga art styles and will be posting some samples of my work soon.

Thank you!
