Yo, nice to meet you! I'm Odin, a 17-year-old aspiring manga artist. My dream is to become a successful mangaka (manga artist)!
Fun fact: while drawing, I NEED to listen to music. Without it, I can’t seem to take fully advantage of my arty potential.
I love shonen manga, but I’ve also taken a liking to horror manga. My all-time favorite manga has to be Bakuman, by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. I wouldn't be where I am today without that manga! After only a couple of chapters, I convinced myself into buying the entire series, rather than reading it online for free. After consuming all 20 volumes, I shed a tear. Perfection at its peak!
My all-time favorite anime is Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack On Titan). Which is quite the contrast to Bakuman, I know. SNK inspired me to focus a lot more on my story writing skills, rather than just my artwork.
I’m mainly a traditional artist; however I’m gradually getting better at the digital stuff. Having a few extra tricks up my sleeve might come in handy. So for those of you who know your way around a tablet; Keep it up! The world has room for all kinds of artists!
I’d go for Copic markers any day, despite the price. But I still like exploring new materials and techniques. If you have any recommendations, then definitely let me know!
If you have any questions, then leave a comment below. I’d be happy to get back to you. Thanks for checking out my page!
