Hello there! I am Joey,
My DA is my random art work and Cosplay.
Nothing really too big. Just my thoughts and stuff on my daily life.
I hope you enjoy!
I like to draw Manga and watercolor
I love the anime/manga style. and YES someday I would love to bring my story into a graphic novel and share with the world. I do believe it is possible to become a manga artist in either American, Canada, Australia or even uk. Not just Japan or you need to be asian.
BUT, in this time and this economy, people who say they want to become manga artist SHOULDN'T depend on it too much. Like I mean don't expect the dream of the manga artist to pay for you're bills, rent, and you're life. You need a back-up job that for SURES earns good money while you work on you're manga work. so least you won't end up in the streets. And as you make you're money and draw on the side (believe me, its going to be hard, and say good bye to most of you're social life) you can get better and better. And if the manga you make does well (begins to sell little by little) THEN that's when you start to make plans on what you will do next.
Study other styles beside anime. I know you love it, but you got to keep an open mind about other styles and maybe somehow be inspired to make you're own.
Study EVERYTHING about art. anatomy, vanishing points, perspective, color studies, etc...
DONT. EVER. GIVE UP. ON SOMETHING YOU TRULY LOVE IN LIFE. EVER.
