Ever since I was little I loved watching my favorite tv shows, cartoons, and animes on Toonami. Now I'm older and I want to give back to that. I want something for the next generation to watch that will have all those things I saw that made me feel so happy and proud. Dragon Ball, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Rurouni Kenshin, Pokemon, Fullmetal Alchemist...They all taught me things about character.
I know they're just manga turned anime and they aren't real but I don't care. I pretended to shoot the kamehameha wave, I drew arrays and tried to perform Alchemy, I put my Buster Blader on my duel disk hoping he'd come to life so I could summon Dark Paladin in the most badass way I could. I wanted those things to be real so bad. So I turned to paper. I drew them. I made them do all the things I wanted and now I see that they'll always be with me. All of them. All my favorites: Megaman X, Zero, Roll, Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Ash, Misty, Charizard. Link, Navi, Yugi, Yami, Edward, Alphonse, Cloud, Rurouni, Speed Racer, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Sora, Kairi, the Power Rangers, and so many more I feel bad for not writing them out but I have time to give my thanks.
And finally I realize that the best way I can give my thanks, to retell their lessons and morals, is to illustrate them in my own way. I want to draw manga. That is my passion. I want to regurgitate all of my love and praise and vomit it on to paper so I can transform it into something others will love. I am trying to get started but I need help. I hope you read this and understand my cause. Yes, we acted stupid trying to be like these characters but they taught us how to do things right and honorable didn't they? I've taken each of them to heart and I won't stop until I can give it back somehow. So please, look at my pictures, comment, ask questions, criticize, destroy it, break me down so hard I might not get back up and when I seem that way, broken and defeated. I urge one of you to help me up. If not I'll do it on my own but don't expect me to lie there and take it just cause you have the right to dish it out. I will fight your hate and criticism and I will accept your love.
I need help from the artists of this community and others like it. Share your art, share your techniques and methods, help me make something great and I promise I'll help you, if I'm not a man of my word then I don't deserve to call any of those characters my heroes or role models. Friends will help us get through anything, bet you can't guess which character portrayed that message....hint. It's all of them.
