Chapter 5 “Characters” – Section 4 “Supporting Types”
“Although my heart may be weak, it's not alone. It's grown with each new experience. And it's found a home with all the friends I've made. I've become a part of their heart, just as they've become a part of mine.” -Sora (protagonist of Kingdom Hearts)
Great stories are hardly ever about only a hero or a villain who fight obsessively to the bitter end. In a great story, there is an entire world of characters who not only love, fight, support, challenge, teach and invest in your character's life, but who make your protagonist into the person that they are. And when created with care, these supporting characters fill the world of your story with an incredible level of dept
How to improve your artDisclaimer: This it not a tutorial, nor the only right way to improve. This is simply how I learn best and how I developed the style I have today.
Also, if you see any grammar mistakes, don't be afraid to point them out, english is not my first language
I can't even keep track on how many people who have asked this, and I've usually replied with "practice" "trying" and "failing". That is only the short version, a golden rule maybe, but not very detailed.

Writing Tips - Creating Civilizations (Part I)Or alternatively, I explain my fantasy generator game from awhile back. Today we’re going to talk about how you can create a civilization/society for your fantasy or science fiction world. There will be another part to this though, and in that one I’ll be telling you how to create a society/civilization integral to the theme of your novel. Think of the first parts as creating something like The Shire, and the final ones about creating something like Oceania from 1984.
The main difference is that from there, we start with the “end” - we figure out what we want for the story, and we build things that come from a specific conclusion. In 1984 the civilization is there to prove that totalitarianism is bad. In this one, we start from the beginning. We figure out a society’s assets and we build it to a logical conclusion.

Other Hobbies outside of Drawing: Watching movies and T.V, Reading comics
Martial Arts and Parkour.
Born and Raised in Manila Philippines.
Proud of my countries culture and history.
I love anime, cartoons, manga and anime. My style is a bit of a mixture of both styles.
I hope to one day, work for marvel comics. Dreaming of releasing a comic book, starring my Original characters.
The Drawing tools I use for my drawings are MS Paint, my mouse and Nero Photoshop Burner. But I hope to one day ascend to using more advance programs, like Photoshop.
When I'm not drawing, I start practicing my martial arts. Primarily; Karate, Taekwondo and little bit of Jeet Kune Do. I also start practicing my Parkour whenever I have some energy to spare. Kinda want to live up to my name sake.
I get most of my inspiration from watching movies, T.V, books and a good walk. But most of it, comes from the shower... Eh, we all have our spots. ^^ lol
