A Manga-ka is first and foremost, a storyteller... not simply an artist who draws Manga. So PERFECT the story before you start the 'Name' (Pron: ne-mu / Def: Sketch storyboard). Remember; Readers won't mind a Manga with mediocre art and an amazing story, but will not keep reading a mediocre story with amazing art.
"A DREAM calls out to it's owner no matter how young or old they may be, and it knocks on their heart until they open it, and if they do not answer, they themselves will search all their life for something they do not even know." - yours truly.
