Hi there !

Sometimes I answered to people sometimes not... I simply forget to answer, or don't have time, or the question has been asked billion times, or it's too complicated to write it in english.

so here some answers: (sorry if there are english's mistakes, I'm french ^^.)

Do you take commissions ?
Nope, I really don't have time ! Sorry guys. I won't answer to note/PM about that.

Do you do prints of your illustrations ?

Not for the moment... It's very personal I'm not sure I'm ready to make money from it.

Can I use your art ?
It depends for what, If I don't answer then it means "no". Don't take it badly... It just takes too much times to make proper sentences to say no and I don't have time to deal with it... sorry.
And please don't use it for 9gag or something else like that.
Artists are fighting for there rights and they use screenshots and gif to make jokes...
I might be hard and harsh about it and I'm sorry but it's insulting and paradoxale.

What software do you use ?
Mangastudio 4EX for comics and drawing.
Mangastudio 5EX for colors.
I draw on MS4 because it's easier and faster... it depends on your sensibility I guess...

Where can I get your brushes ?
My brushes are here :…
They are the basic one from MS5 but I changed the sensitivity of everything.

Do you do tutorials ?
You can find some step by step in my deviantart's gallery and some livestream here :
My english is not good enough to do a clear tutorial.

Are you the bearded guy that you always paint ?
Nope, I'm asian guys ! ahah :D.
I will never paint myself, my ego is big enough like that.

Where did you learn to draw ?
I learned and still learn everything with internet, you can find almost everything. Just do it seriously and cleverly.
I spent a lot of time on Posemaniac to train my eyes to see fast and be accurate.
For perspective, I recommend the book from David Chelsea, the drawings are not that good but everything he said is very very good. I bought the DVD from Scott Robertson, it's really nice for free hand perspective...
For anatomy I learn from photography, at the time I followed a lot of nude photographers on deviantart and draw every pictures every morning...
I also learned a lot from this website:… , even if it is in japanese I understood a lot of things.
You can also get DVDs from Vilppu.

And most important: I learn from drawing from life. Try to draw every situations! You might not draw it well but it doesn't matter. The most important is to feel and live what you draw.

How much time do you draw ?
I draw 8~18hours a day, it depends if I like what I do or not. Most of the time it is 12 hours I think... I can't really say, there are days where I don't draw...

Do you use references ?
Yes, I do. 50% of the time. If I don't use references it would mean that I know everything and have nothing to learn...
And when I don't like to draw something I use reference to do it faster and better.

What are your inspirations ?
My inspirations are mainly japaneses manga artists, you can find the list here:…
I don't read a lot of american comics or french comics.

If you guys have other questions, just ask me I'll try to answer it here.

I like your journal. Just one more question: Who is then, that bearded guy? (if you don't mind)

Bonjour, je suis américain et ne parle que l'anglais, alors s'il vous plaît excuser les erreurs grammaticales que je fais. J'allais vous dire combien j'admire votre travail et la façon dont vous et moi tout ce qui m'inspire, mais je me dis que vous avez tout le temps. Ce que je demande vraiment ce qui est des bandes dessinées ou des livres en tirez-vous pour? Ne sais pas si je peux les trouver en Amérique ou pas, mais je serais ravi de les lire.

Cool information! I think you should add a part where you say people can use your art as computer wallpaper or as a background wallpaper on phones and tablets. It's fun and harmless and most artists are cool with it, but some users aren't sure.

Sorry if my english is confusing! I'm glad you're making the effort to communicate in the extra language.

"are you a bot ?" ♥

Genre tu dois faire une FAQ parce que t'es trop une star, mais le mec quoi !!!

Je déconne roooh, très instructif ma foi...surtout le passage ou tu chies sur Tite Kubo, et ça je pardonne pas *flammes dans les yeux*
Et je voulais ajouter un truc : j'ai vu ici et là qu'on te reprochait pas mal de dessiner des mecs, sexy de surcroit et c'est forcément ce qui dérange, et je crie "no way !". Je trouve au contraire que tu amènes énormément de poésie dans un environnement très souvent trop sexuel et c'est un vrai plus quelle que soit la position de chacun. Les mecs peuvent devenir touchant et ne sont pas figés dans les représentations machistes, ce que tu désamorces avec beaucoup de cœur et moi je t'en remercierais jamais assez !

Je te l'ai déjà dit mais j'adore ce que tu fais !!
Porte toi bien et post à mort encore et toujours et encore !

Je dois t'avouer que je n'accorde pas beaucoup d'importance à ceux qui me disent comment dessiner :D Ils devraient s'intéresser à ce qu'ils dessinent... S'il dessinent un tant soit peu, sans être méchant ahah. Et les commentaires de techniciens qui dessinent pour dessiner ne m'intéresse pas non plus :D, je ne réponds pas en général pour éviter tout conflit inutile ahah.
