My name is Forrest. I have been drawing since I was 5. I mostly draw manga, but I also enjoy drawing animals, scenery, and just about anything. I also love to cosplay and write stories. In real life I'm a bit shy but I'm a friendly guy.
Interests
Just thought I'd let you guys know why I haven't been able to post any art.  I have been unable to draw for a full month after an accident involving a tablesaw.  I was working on a construction project and I wasn't being careful enough.  I cut my thumb pretty bad but hopefully it won't cause any permanent damage as it was skin deep.  Hopefully I'll be back to drawing in a few weeks when my thumb heals completely and I can hold my pencils and my pen stylus normally.  But other than that incident life is alright on my end.

In other news, I was considering starting seperate accounts for different projects.  Since I enjoy both writing and drawing I think a graphic novel format would be good for my stories I've been working on, including my superhero story Volt: Green Lightning Wielder, which was previously written in comic book format with a manga art style.  

What do you guys think?  Any suggestions on story ideas/formatting?

I was thinking of making this page principally for my cosplay pictures just for organizational purposes but idk.  I'll let you know if I make a new page so you can follow.

Anyway, thanks for taking an interest in my art in the past.  It's a fun hobby and I look forward to getting back in the game someday when I'm ready.  Don't take for granted your talent and abilities if you've been creating art yourself, and always be grateful for your healthy undamaged body that allows you to do so. XD  Stay out of harms way and keep up the good work everyone.

I appreciate your appreciation, but I only favorite stuff from top notch artists like you. And, I had to get the word out about Armin so we could sooner recognize his honor, bravery, and valience.

I consider myself a beginner compared to other artists on this site so I'm glad people still notice my talent, even if I've got room for improvement.  I'm glad you consider me a top notch artist.  And it's okay.  Armin's a great character so I appreciate your tribute to him.  I just wish I hadn't found out until after I caught up on the story.

You're very welcome.  I had to give you a llama and a follow too because your art is amazing and very professional.  I'm kind of humbled seeing as I'm only a year younger and not nearly on your level.  Very impressive art you've got going on.  I hope someday I can be as good as you.

That means so much hearing that! I really do appreciate it!
I've been doing this type of art for so many years, but I'm not as good as other people at my age Y_Y
Tips I can give is, give yourself a goal, then practice practice practice. Keep all pictures including failures, then study where you're weakest and try to concentrate on that :)
Again, thank you very much!
