It is a really kick ass manga! It takes it a while to get serious and sorta starts out as a nonsense comedy. But it has completely transformed into a pretty awesome action packed manga!
I don't have DArt so I can't vote. :/ But I'd say HR. Bleach is soooo "done that". It's startng to get boring to watch bleach fanart nowadays because there's sooo much of it.
Well I added the poll onto this thread here, Blai! So go make your vote official!
I still follow Bleach and have to admit the story is doing better... but for a while there, I was getting pretty annoyed with it.
I am dealing with some people taking my Ichigo Mask that I created and making some small changes to it and then posting it as their own work!! That kinda shit pisses me off!
I love FT cause it is such a playful manga... it does not get too bogged down in worthless crap.
Ghost - a question that's be popping up recently in my mind:
Are you a fortuneteller? Why? Well I don't know but coincidentally your nick has a great link with the exiled Ghost from reborn
Haha... I wish I was!
The name was, at first, Exiled Ghost... but somethings came up to where I had to change it around to what it currently is.
Hey, ghostexiled! How are you doing?
Hope you and your family had a super christmas!
Voted for HR because I'd love to see your version of Lambo or Kyoya Hibari
I think your versions'd be awesome, since imo those character fits pretty well with your own style.
I voted for One Piece. It's a 3 way tie right now. What do you like most about manga? (vague question)

Do you prefer drawing men or women
or which one is easier for you to work with
Thank you for the holiday greetings! Hope you had a great one as well!
Well the first thing that attracted me to them was the art... since I am an artist. But the second thing was finding out that the animes took liberties of editing out certain stuff/character from it, thus making me curious why. Then third, the story had to be interesting... of course!
My all time favorite artist is Alphonse Mucha.

I have a (silly) question:
Do you compare drawing with math? Let me explain the comparison: I have always had the feeling never being good in math - how hard I tried. My math teacher always said that everyone can be good in math as long as you try hard and do your best. The same goes for drawing: when I end up drawing, I always end up in drawing vague, abstract figures which are given a meaning by the viewer. I can't end up drawing something nice and concrete.
So can it be taught? or is it a talent inherent to someone?
First let me tell you that I am HORRIBLE at math. Now I don't know if that was because I really never cared for it, thus making it so that I never practiced it. But math is kryptonite to me.
I just never got it or was interested in it... so I can not tell you if your practice math you would get better.
Now on to art. There are 2 different artist in the world... those with God given talent to be able to create whatever the heck they want without any kind of proper training or practice. Then there is the ones who are not talented right out the womb.
I like to think of myself as stuck somewhere between these 2 different artist. When I was younger, I was praised for the things I drew and whatnot. As I grew older I found that the praise was not around as much.
Even though I have a BA degree in Commercial Art - Illustration, I don't think I really learned that much in my time in college. The problem lies in the fact that I did not go to one of these expensive art schools that do teach you everything you need to know... I went to a regular college that had a decent art program.
My major should of prepared me for what the illustration world was like today! But it did not... it taught me what the illustration world was like 15 years ago. So digital illustration and graphic design was not taught to me, I would have to learn this stuff on my own outside of college.
So anyway... I went off the topic a bit there. Yes it can be learned... but it has to be taught in the correct ways. Also, with anything out there... there will always be people that are natural born talents in things.
I knew a handful of natural born artist during my time in college. I found that they usually threw away their talents because they are bored with them, they have done it since they were small and it no longer offers a challenge to them. So their talents usually waste away...
Not saying this happens to all of them... just most.
I hope that gave you some insight!
