I will try to get permission from my editor to show you some of the new artworks as well if i can :love: thank you all so much for your love and support!

Frequently Asked Questions


What art materials do you use?
:bulletpurple:Mechanical pencil w/ .03 lead
:bulletpurple: Maxon Comic ink & brush for inking (0/2 kolinsky)/ copic SP multiliners
:bulletpurple: Copic Markers ( I have both Sketch and Ciao)
:bulletpurple: Iwata HP CS airbrush
:bulletpurple: Strathmore smooth bristol, 300 series or Borden & Riley #234, 11" x 14" I cut them down to 8.5"x 11" , Maxon Manga Manuscript paper
:bulletpurple: Paint brushes- kolinsky and squirrel are the best, but i use white sable the most.

Are you copic certified?
Yes, I am

Where can I buy cheap copics?
I buy mine from I suggest buying ciao if you are a beginer with markers and just want to try them out. A set of 12 is a good starting point, I recommend ciao because they are smaller and cheaper, but have the same tips and colors as the larger sketch markers do.

How long have you been drawing?
I have been drawing and painting seriously for about 10 years I believe I started drawing manga in 6th grade.

Do you take request or art trades?
i don't accept requests because I can't work for free, but I might be willing to do an art trade with friends and others of an equal level ^^ Just note me asking about it. You can also win a request by catching a kiriban of mine.

How did you get so good?
The short and long answer is practice. But I can tell you, if you want to improve practice anatomy, clothing folds and shadows. To make any art better instantly don't draw it on lined paper, take a good scan/ photo of it so the white looks white and the lines look black and adjust this in Photoshop, crop the image so it focuses on the drawing, don't leave empty white space.

Will you critique/look at my artwork?
Sure just send me a note titled "critique request" and ill check it out when i have time.

how did you customize your profile like that?
I used this tutorial I used this tutorial… and the resources from the same person.
