Dear friends, how's life? 

As I said before, even if I have a ton of work, I'll always feel like writing to you here. 

My Manga progress is going well, I'm really proud of this remake, Lia looks more mature, the paneling and quality improved too. 
Here is a little example:  


What's New on YouTube? 


Some Attack on Titan fan art! 




Some thoughts. . . 


I feel, looking for a publisher is like looking for someone to adopt a blind dog. No one seems to be interested. Yet, every time I remind myself of all the privilege and the support I get, it stops bothering me. All it takes for these publishers is to "trust" and bury down the misconception they have about non-japaese artists but I guess it's pretty late now. I'll contact more publishers but I'm fine with self-publishing since I've been saving money for quite some time *haha*.. As most of you know by now, my Manga will be released by April 2014! 

It is already hard being a Manga artist...

 

Now, let's say you endured quite a lot to get to your level, if you look around you and watch the "english" side of Manga, most of what you'll find is comics, yes, comics that are assumed to be much more original than what you're doing. Why? I don't really know..but hey, it's one more reason to prove them wrong by working hard!   
Now i'm not against comics, but I won't call my Manga a comic.

How Many times did you get punched in the face because you draw Manga? 


probably in every contest, it's either they think I ripped off somebody's art or I traced a picture.. 

Why do you still draw?


Coz it's enchanting! 

final word, 
I think, all these disappointments add up to your strength. The world we live in is cold. There might not be a physical friend beside me to show me that I can do it, but I can feel the hundred thousand friends from all over the world cheering up for me.. it gives me an overwhelming strength!   

Thank you!

yours,
Sophie

I’m an ordinary Manga artist. I write stories and draw them since I was 7. I love fantasy and have always thought of other worlds. I’m working on a Manga called “ the ocean of secrets”, Lia and Moria are the main characters (you’ll see them a lot). I’m also taking Manga as a hobby for now. *hides behind the door*

I read your bucket list. I really like #20. If we had manga lessons at school, I wouldn't hate school so much xD

Hello Sophie-Chan ^_^

You are one of the most talented artists I've ever seen. You're beautiful artwork inspired me to become an artist and continues to inspire me. I am NOWHERE near as talented as you but I'm trying my best and it's all thanks to you. I was especially inspired by your: "My Manga Drawings from When I Started 'Til 2012" video :heart:.

Keep up the good work ^_^.

Much love,

Otakuprincess

Hi Sophie--Chan! ^_^

 

I saw some of your drawing videos on YT. I love your style and your hard work! :)

And then I watched your "Draw my life" video. Your story touched me, because it's emotional and some situations are similar to mine. But you never gave up! And this is your greatest attribute of all, your fighting spirit! Please stay how you are and no matter how tough Manga-ka's life is, please keep on drawing.

 

I wish you the best of luck and success!
