into despair. by Sophie--Chan
into despair.
Things are changing, life is becoming more difficult as days pass by.

I will not let this drag me into despair.

I want to keep on fighting... 

I hope to break free of everything.. 

Someday..

I sketched while waiting in the airport. 

Sorry for the lack of updates.

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*.

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*

Dear Sophie,
You made me feel like I have something.When I started manga, I had my friend tease me. Say it's ugly, say it looks like an alien. Tease me for it. I remembered your story on draw my life. The story that made me move on to drawing manga , learning japanese and meeting new people. Thank you for drawing and doing what you do..

I can't thank you enough,
~ Giru-chan
