...for now. I'll try and make this short and concise.


I've realized that walking down this path won't do me any good: Persistently updating a small following with mediocre artwork, stories and small unworthy improvements just won't work! I've decided to change my approach completely!
If you follow me, please keep reading.
 
Don't get me wrong - I'm still in sync with my dreams. I still want to become a famous artist in several different platforms (films, manga, etc.) more than anything! However, my current approach towards my dream(s) is not optimal.


I’ll stop uploading deviants for a while, step back, improve myself in more than one way and then come back. I’ve limited myself to only one drawing/writing style (manga) for 8 years now, and I feel that my potential to becoming an overall great artist is becoming very narrow, which is very unsatisfactory. I’m not saying that I want to become a master in everything, nor am I saying that I want to be a "jack of all trades". All I want is a wider range and understanding of the world of storywriting and art.


School is also an undermined issue. I want to finish school NOW, not later. I simply can’t tolerate the thought of having to redo exams in my mid-30s or 40s, just because I slacked off in high school. Even though I'm extremely unmotivated, I still want a diploma I can be proud of. Also, having a good education isn't such a bad idea, considering the world we live in (I'm mainly talking about insurance and indemnity), which means that the activity on my site(s) will unfortunatley be first in line to suffer…


I want to explore different tools, styles, colors, techniques and much more! Consider me a smoldering fire: a dangerous ember luring unnoticed inside the walls, and suddenly, when the time is right, exploding out and shredding the building down into ashes in mere hours. I’m not sure when I’ll be ready to "explode out", but when I am - I’ll assure that my comeback will be great, and I'll leave you with itching burn-marks!


For those of you who choose to stay with me until I get back: you guys are true supporters in my book. But then again, I know this is very sudden, so I wouldn’t be surprised if most of you decide to unwatch me. Anyways, It’s been a great run guys; hopefully this road bump won’t last too long… 


:iconodindraws: Thank you for all the support everyone, I deeply appreciate it. :heart:


GRHGHGTAAA!!!! :iconbleedrainbowplz:

SHORT BIO:
Yo, nice to meet you! I'm Odin, an 18-year-old aspiring manga artist. My dream is to become a successful storywriter and illustrator!
Fun fact: while drawing, I NEED to listen to music. Without it, I can’t take full advantage of my potential.

I love shonen manga, but I’ve also taken a liking to horror manga. My all-time favorite manga has to be Bakuman, by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. I wouldn't be where I am today without that manga! After only a couple of chapters, I convinced myself to buying the entire series, rather than reading it online for free. shed a tear after consuming all 20 volumes. Perfection at its peak!

My all-time favorite anime is Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack On Titan). Which is quite the contrast to Bakuman, I know. SNK inspired me to focus a lot more on my story writing skills, rather than just my artwork.

I’m mainly a traditional artist; however I’m gradually getting better at the digital stuff. Having a few extra tricks up my sleeve might come in handy. So for those of you who know your way around a tablet; Keep it up! The world has room for all kinds of artists!

I’d go for Copic markers any day, despite the price. But I still like exploring new materials and techniques. If you have any recommendations, then definitely let me know!

If you have any questions, then leave a comment below. I’d be happy to get back to you.

:iconodindraws: Thanks for checking out my page!
