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!
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!
