My real name is Olga but people usually call me JD or Ayane (or JD-Ayane XD). Choose whichever you want to call me! ^_^
I am an 25 years old German artist and am currently working as a professional mangaka for Tokyopop Germany and Carsen Manga. I like to draw illustrations in manga/anime-style, landscapes and manga-stories. Aside from that I am working as an art teacher for Comicademy and hold occassionally workshops.

I read your thread. My name is Inu Harrlance. (gaia name.) and I actually wanna be a Filmmaker but I wanted to become a Mangaka artist as well. currently right now I'm working on my own project. Not in ink though. anyways I have eleven pages in it. but it took a long time to do it. partially from being busy and my laziness. After I read your thread it made me think about How I would be a Mangaka. at the rate I'm going I'll be broke within less in a month. But I'm still going to try and publish my ideas one day. besides life is never easy. So thanks to you it gave me a brief self check and how I should choose my life for I'm going to be college student after I graduate this year. My dream is is not broken, I can probably belt out a few days in a studio all day if I can do the same with editing video clips for school projects like I do everyday. Thank you for your tutorial and maybe one day I'll be like you. best of luck to you and your endeavors.
