Hey there, everybody!

Glad you found my DeviantArt gallery. Some of you may know me from my YouTube videos. Here's a link to my channel, where you can find hundreds of instructional vids on almost any art-related topic you can imagine:…

Please check out my newest art book, THE REALISM CHALLENGE. It shows how to create photo-realistic illustrations, step by step-- artwork so real-looking it becomes difficult to distinguish them from actual objects:

I've got two how-to-draw books out now, MASTERING MANGA and MASTERING MANGA 2. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

My latest graphic novel project is a 6-book series for Dark Horse Comics called BRODY'S GHOST. Book 5 comes out April 15, 2014. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

Thanks again for visiting my gallery. I really hope you 
enjoy the artwork and step-by-step tutorials you find here. ^_^

All my best,

Awesome. And by the way, I have the first volume of the Mastering Manga, which I bought for my iPad/iPhone/iPod touch. I love that there's a page where artists can choose from four different drawing styles. So far the drawings I've ever done look like they're in the extremely cartoony style, but the average artist should practice in all different styles which I should consider doing, instead of always drawing in one style.

Hey Mark, my name's Nate. I absolutely love your work as both an artist and writer for your YouTube and graphic novels. I often use your tutorials an art for reference and help in my own works, and you are a major influence in my work. I'm not only an artist, but also a web designer for my own company called Epic's Production. i was recently at your website, and although your content is all good, it seems unorganized and kind of hard to navigate, no offense. I would love to help you out with it, if you're interested, and if not, no harm done. If you are though, you can find my webdesign service form at You're an amazing artist, and don't stop doing what you do.

     I was word of mouth advertising your newest "how to" release 2 months before it was due to come out and was disappointed when Amazon said it had been delayed. But that did not dissuade me. You're one of the #1 US Artists of your kind and I support you completely. Might we get a 3rd volume out there somewhere?? I'd like to invite you to visit my page... there's not much there... but... for all the things that you have done for the community I would like to do something for you, if you would accept it. 
I would like to recreate Brody's world in 3D-CGI for your soul use in any way your see fit. Should you find it acceptable of course. Please let me know if this idea appeals to you and I'll start working on it soon.

Thanks in advance,
T. Brown

Thank you so much for the dedication! I know you often say thank you to your YouTube watchers and everyone who's bought the books at the end of the videos, but dedicating the new Brody's Ghost book to us was just lovely. :heart: It actually made me smile and I'm all happy now. :D I (and probably the many other fans) reeeeally appreciate it! ^^

...And I'm commenting here because I don't have a YouTube account. I've watched your videos for a while, and they've been a great help, even though I don't draw manga. As weird as that sounds... I used to draw manga, I just thought I liked drawing realistically more, even though I'm nowhere near realistic at the moment and still have a bit manga in my style. It's disappearing slowly, though. Keep doing the videos! They're great and you've been a wonderful inspiration! :la: :la: :la:

Hey Mark! I just want to say that you are probably one of the best anime artists I`ve seen. I watch your videos on YouTube and at the endings, I`m all like `Why am I not blessed with such beautiful talent`Red Panda Tripping I`ve learned a lot from your vids and I`m on my way to becoming a great anime artist like you.  (:   KEEP ON DRAWIN`I Made My Own Icon... 

P.S- I wanted to buy one of your books at a `Barnes and Noble` one time but they didn`t have itonion head &quot;shock&quot; <------(My actual reaction)
Guess I have to order it online sometime.   ):
AF-Vet Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014
Jpop, let it never be said you are not potentially a great artist. I'ts all about break mechanics. Go to your library and get a book called "Drawing with the Right Side of the Brain" and that will set you down a path you will have always wanted to go on. I wish you luck and please keep me posted as to how your progress is growing. Best of luck! Af_vet
