My name is Michael. My friends call me Mike. I love to sketch and draw my own characters and design stories behind them. I draw all sorts of things like Manga, Anthro/Furry and FanArt. I’m a big Anime fan and Love video games. My favorite Animes/Mangas are DBZ, Spice&Wolf, Durarara, etc. My favorite games are Ookami, Monster Hunters 3 Ultimate, Halo, Skyrim, and Kingdom Hearts. My favorite movies are Miyazaki Films and many others.
Anime was my biggest influence for drawing. I just love the style! I always wanted to be able to draw like that, so I started drawing chracters from my favorite shows and started finding books on how to draw. Overtime, I started moving away from Fanart to drawing characters of my own. I started learning to use Photoshop, using layers and brushes to bring color and effects to my drawings.
I draw a lot of my inspiration from mythology and folklore, particularly Japanese mythology. My favorite mythical creature is the Kitsune. I love how they can use illusions to hide their true forms. I prefer to mostly draw a combination of manga and furry. I like this combo for portraying expressions and emotions on my characters (I think ears and tails add more emphasis to the character’s emotion).
