Hi, I've just read through the entire Tanuki Blade archive and I like what I see so far. The story is good, the art style great, and I appreciate your courage for illustrating a comic series through only traditional methods- it's not done often, and I know from experience how hard it can be and how unpopular it is among critics (got a lot of crap myself when I used pencils).
So stay strong! And keep on creating. You've got something good going on, don't let anyone change it.
Anyway, I've just subscribe to you, and I hope you have a great week.

Thank you, I appreciate you taking the time to read it and subscribing! Yea, I just like working in watercolors and markers, but digital illustrations are awesome as well. More on the way by next weekend!

Diggin' the Scarab Angel. It has a very Tezuka feel to it.
