This is a detail from p109 of the first book in the series. I wonder if it was the inspiration for Hinoraito's gorgeous illustration? (Check it out in my Favorites section if you haven't already!)

Miki Falls is an amazingly drawn manga but the mouth of the character was drawn too high up, making them look like they have enormous chins. (in my opinion.)

Wow, you draw like the most pretty eyes! Wish I could draw like you one day when I'm older :D
I felt like crying for her, she looks so sorry for herself! :'(

You are my inspiration and I want to have my own manga published just like you :) :happybounce:

I loved this book!!!!!Mark,my friend Grace is a huge fan of your art and so am I!!I introduced her to you and,get this,our art teacher assigned us to do art of some famous artist on the art class' chairs,my friend Graciella did some of your chibis that you did in your tutorials on the chair.She did the happy maid chibi,the angry chibi,the crying chibi,the shocked chibi and also another but forgot it...Anyway,me and my friend Graciella love you and your art,she even got the Spring Book of Miki Falls from her library and we read it and the art was so clean that I kept thinking to myself,"Maybe,I can erase the art!!!"I tried it,I don't know why but since you did the art in pencils,it was like you just drew it.....wierd right?Anyway,I am a big fan,I have even subscribed to your YouTube account!!!See ya around Sensei Crilley!!!!

ahhh a complex emotion. i love the fade of the trees but i think miki in the foreground should be a litte faded to show she's not in two place at once not to say i don't totally love this drawing :D i am a fool for pretty benches and i think you conquerd that but the shading needs some touch up on the foreground. look at me being over anylitical :( you know i love your drawings mr drawing guru!

My new style of eyes was inspired by you… but they're hard to do!

I think a lot of your other work is very nice, but on this pic, all I could think was "CHIN. WHOA." Not the best, but still good.

i remember this peice... i was one of the first peices of you work i saw...
u are so awesome. i have been watching your videos since september 2009. (i watch a lot of youtube) if it wasnt for you, i wouldnt be drawing as much as i do. thank you. without you, i would have never gotten into manga and anime. even though your videos were not the first ones i watched, still. you had the largest impact on me.

thank you so much! :cries:
