Hi! I'm a fan of your art. :)
I was wondering if you had ever considered making a "How to draw manga" book. I want to learn your techniques as an artist, what tools you use, how you developed your style, how you make comic pages, your inking tips... I think that it would be a great book!

demiJecht Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I kinda hate to ask this cause I bet you've been asked before but what are some of the common physical features for astrals? Like the masks are the meant to be random or are they meant to be something that resembles something from its owner, etc.
If you ever respond to this I will be happy and most likely die.

the reason i'm asking btw is cause i want to draw a astral for myself without it being a clone of alex's so yeah.

I've been a huge fangirl of your works for nearly four years now and i haven't known you were on dA!
