Hey! The name's Mike.
« on: June 16, 2012, 11:50:05 PM »
Pleased to meet you all! Although I haven't met a single one of you quite yet, I'm sure your individual charms will be a pleasure to see!  ;)

As mentioned before, my name is Mike. I'm a guy from the United States who's getting into manga a little bit more (rather than just being a fan of both manga and anime!), especially in the writing and drawing categories. I'm not the best at either of them, but I can copy professional artwork nearly line-for-line quite nicely, and peers have said I'm a pretty decent writer.

Being a fan of anime and manga, I do have a few favorites! Lucky Star (being the first anime I watched, surprisingly), Clannad, Toradora!, The World God Only Knows, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. If you've heard of it, I'm also a Touhou fan. Never played any of the games quite yet (looking forward to!), but absolutely love the personality and look of the characters. The music is fantastic as well.

Not much else to really say about me, and I certainly hope I didn't bore you! Looking forward to participating on the forum and getting to know a good deal of you!

Thanks for the welcomings, folks! It's nice to see a lively forum.

A quick question if I may, but where would be a good place to get started on the forum? Thought jumping right in would be a good idea, but I've never been quite the avid forum user, so I'm a bit at a loss where to start.

Starting a gallery to show us your artwork or showing some of your stories would be a good start  :clapping:

If you feel that your art is at a "starter level" You can post a topic on the Starter Gallery: http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/board,59.0.html

If you feel that you're more advanced, then you should make on the regular gallery: http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/board,11.0.html

For any Fanart you may have, make a topic for them on the Fanart Gallery: http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/board,32.0.html

That's at least for drawings, should be a good start!

@Nexuun - I would have been absolutely open to sharing some of my stories! --- If only I had saved any of them. Was never much for clutter; if I have no use for it, I toss it. Unfortunate, but if I write anything I'll post it up! (See below for my artwork... conundrum?)

@Monsterful - I regard myself, until I can make some of my own artwork I'm comfortable sharing, as a copy-cat artist. Is it ethical to post those up, and where would you suggest I do so if it is?

welcome to mangaraiders!

and it's perfectly ethical. we all start somewhere. i'd suggest the starter gallery though if you're just at the copy stage.

if you have any writing you wish to post use develop your story of ideas you still are working out. and manga creations for stories that you are comfortable writing and it's unlikely you'll be going back and changing massive chunks of it.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF
