    Now and Idiotic Manga Artist?

    I was a little sad since my mom saw the idiot part of the title and thought it was perfect for me, but after i read through it, it turned out to be helpful. The art was not the best, but it made me want to draw better so i could prove to myself that i was beyond the level of an idiotic manga artist. Mwah! Ha! Ha!
