OC Creator Meme

So there's this thing circulating in Facebook: An OC Creator wherein the character's appearance, name, and even their personality is decided by the people who comment on your post.

I decided to give it a go, and somehow, I feel like I was trolled..? (´ー`) Oh well, I did my best to depict red skin and strawberry hair, and it turned out surprisingly well? No so sure about drawing him naked, but I'll cross the bridge when I get there.

In any case, this character's description is not completed yet, so he has no name. If you'd like to participate, head on over to my Facebook post and comment away!

Kurohiko's ART SUMMARY 2018

2018 will forever be known to me as the year of webtoons. I had to end my first popular webtoon with Enjelia earlier that year so that she could focus on her project... later, I launched Crystal Shadows as a webtoon, and then entered Apteral into the webtoon contest!

I pretty much failed more than I succeeded, but... Overall, it has been an amazing and wonderful ride. I have learned much more in the past year than compared to any of my other years as a manga artist. I don't know what 2019 will bring, but I do know that I want to keep trying for as long as I can.

Thank you all for the love and support! And if you'd like to try out this meme yourself, check out the original template by roika-elfili on Deviant Art.

Draw This Again: Mango Jam 13 Years After

I've been seeing a lot of people drawing their illustrations from 10-something years ago, and I thought it would be fun to try it myself.

Mango Jam: Twilight's Calling is my first published manga, and issue #7 was my debut cover for the magazine. There were a lot of revisions for this piece, but the end result was worth it~

Looking at my artwork back then is making me cringe a bit. (´-ω-`) I had to adjust my style to look similar to the previous artist's work, and I learned a lot in the process.

By the way, please ignore the logo on the new one, haha! I just traced that and used an existing font that I have on my PC. It's not meant as an improvement on the logo or whatnot, more like a... placeholder? (*´▽`*)

Do you think this is considered an improvement? Or do you prefer my old style?

Either way, if you want to try the meme yourself, grab the original template from Bampire on Deviant Art~
