I find that true personality comes from the small things that aren't called to attention. The reader will always pick up on things, even if you aren't making a point of it. So don't be afraid to slip things in that help define your characters. If you want your character to have a drug habit for instance, they should always be scrimping and saving on other activities just to retain a few extra cents to fuel what they are craving. You don't have to spell it out for the reader, but if you show the character acting as one would act and give the right clues, you will have built them up more than any well thought soliloquy ever could.

*shudders* I do love a good D.Va/D.Va/D.Va. Good job!

It's good! I really like the interplay of color you have going on between the hair and the fingernails, although I could do with a little more on the fingernail side. The green is pretty strong, so something else strong to counterbalance it seems fitting!

Welcome to MangaRaiders! It's perfectly fine if you're a little bit perverted here (I mean, who isn't?) We do also have a sister website called ecchiworld.com if you're interested in sharing your non-PG-13 stuff! MR is kid friendly, so don't go too crazy here (there is a fair amount of leeway), but if you're going full on, we do have EW!

Welcome to MangaRaiders! Suuper has some great tips there! We also have a Starter Gallery nested in the Manga Artists board for those who are not fully confident of their artwork! Either way, we are her to encourage and help people grow their styles. Remember: There is no right or wrong, and we're always learning. Most of all, remember that we're all family here, so even if you're having troubles, we're here to support, not judge!

It's good! Although the left hand seems a bit unnatural. It looks like she's trying to tuck it into a pocket, but what pocket is there in the dress to tuck into? Also: Is there the original around to compare to? If you've based it on an original, why not post that one as well?

Y'know, I will be interested to list into this one and see just how much it jives with how I (one of your friends), think it jives with my own perception of you. Granted, you've been going through a lot of growth! So it's kinda hard to say right? Definitely going to be on my list for Monday morning music!

Speaking of background, I love the attention to detail on the masonry of the building (engineer bursting forth, 3...2...1!) The fact that the brickwork is in sync with the window is a small bit of detail that a lot of people are going to miss with backgrounds (Hitler, for instance, (*censored*ing loser)). You're architecture is always going to be based on a logical manner. You're never going to see fixtures start in the middle of a layer of bricks. They need something solid to sit on! It's a completely logical thing. One stone weighs on top of the next! Don't get lost in any one detail. See the forest through the trees.

Yeah the best plan is to just ignore and quarantine them. Denying people a platform to be an asshole on is the best way to silence them. I also always do my best to output positivity online, gaming or otherwise. You got to actively counter them sometimes. Just keep your head up, and don't let them say *censored*. You'll be better for it in the end.

Welcome to MangaRaiders! Please share some of your water colors with us! It's definitely not the usual medium we see around here, but all art is appreciated!

Welcome back to MangaRaiders! Glad to see you coming back around!

For starters: Yes! This is a very solid idea! Having the villain 'follow' the hero even after they are defeated is not something that's around much, so it's definitely worth exploring! I'd be interested mostly to see how you plan to have the phantom interact with the characters. I've seen before (although am completely unable to recall exactly where) a situation similar to this, where they had the actor who played the villain continue in the series as a sort of imaginary 'friend' in the eyes of the protagonist. They would be walking around in the background of scenes, and act in a similar role to the Greek chorus. They would comment on the situation at hand, and make suggestions (from a villainous point of view) to the protagonist. The character was not an actual ghost, but they certainly acted as one. It was definitely a live action show, so the decision arose mostly from an urge to keep the actor on I think, but as a writer you can definitely chose to approach it from a different angle. Still, I would say that the idea of having a second perspective on a situation at all times is definitely a good way to approach it. You can have an interplay between the two 'minds'. See as the protagonist gets closer and farther away from the mindset of the dead villain. So yeah, you got a thumbs up from me!

DO. NOT. LIKE! *hits hand with a broom*

First world problems indeed! Glad things are going well for you though! Doing creative stuff while also having a full time job is certainly not easy, but it's a balance that can be struck.

They'll pull you in deep for sure. Makes sense though. A sport is already primed and ready for all the drama you can throw at it. As long as you have some interesting characters and a skilled hand, it's a sure thing.
