OH, WOW! You're the amazing artist who helped make "The Rise of Scourge"? You're my biggest art inspiration!

Tell me, was illustrating that book fun? How long did it take?
DreamworldStudio Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Professional General Artist
YUP! That would be me! #^_^#

ah shucks! Thank you! XD

Yes! Illustrating the book was quite fun...I've lots of inspiration and reference from the many cats I have and have had. :D

As for how takes about 4-6 months...sure it's only an 80 page book, but it still took time to create all the storyboards, pencil, ink and tone. It also usually takes me about 6-8 months to complete a 180+page book, which I have done with my own original manga series, My Cat Loki :D

That's awesome... Ah, I have a few more questions, if you don't mind? ^^;

Did the Erin's send you the storyline to the Rise of Scourge? Oh, and how long did it take you to become an artist this great?

I worked with Tokyopop and Harper my editor at Tokyopop sent me the script, written by another writer and not the Erins...

And a long time! One never stops learning!...and I'm 41yrs old, so I've been drawing for a VERY long time! XD

I saw your comic in our school library~
now I'm looking for the next volume^^
hope I could see more arts about Loki and Ameya~

I'm really a fan of that comic~

Thank you! ^_^

Well...there are only TWO volumes to the series, as it was cancelled and the third volume was never made ;__; and unfortunately, Tokyopop holds all publishing rights to the series, so I can finish it on my own without pay gobs and gobs of money to buy back the full rights on it >,<

But...I've also come to terms that I've moved one from the series, so I won't be finishing it, sadly...but that won't stop me from creating the occasional piece of artwork from it...though I've many a comic project in the works at the moment to keep me busy for many years to come ^_^
