Hey there, everybody!

Glad you found my DeviantArt gallery. Some of you may know me from my YouTube videos. Here's a link to my channel, where you can find hundreds of instructional vids on almost any art-related topic you can imagine:…

Please check out my newest art book, THE REALISM CHALLENGE. It shows how to create photo-realistic illustrations, step by step-- artwork so real-looking it becomes difficult to distinguish them from actual objects:

I've got two how-to-draw books out now, MASTERING MANGA and MASTERING MANGA 2. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

My latest graphic novel project is a 6-book series for Dark Horse Comics called BRODY'S GHOST. Book 5 comes out April 15, 2014. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

Thanks again for visiting my gallery. I really hope you 
enjoy the artwork and step-by-step tutorials you find here. ^_^

All my best,

Why not Mark Crilley. You inspire me very much. Found your tutorials in youtube 2 or 3 years ago. I've been drawing all my life and I keep telling everyone IF they ask me why I never expand it further for two reasons and one is, got emotional and depressed when someone critic my drawings by using ballpens since he use pencils. Its hard to be poor but that does not stop you from being creative.

But I saw realistic ballpens so why not. Have a lot of catching again.
Yes I saw your book here in the Philippines and I do not know if you were here last comicon since I did not attend it but hopefully this time I will and hopefully you come visit so I could ask for your autograph of one of the famous guy in manga world.

One salute for you man! :)

Ah, I finally found you here. I never knew you had a DA, but nice to know. ^^
I first found out about your YouTube from a little how-to-draw-manga app, from a few years ago. I saw one of your videos on it, and decided to take a look at your channel. There, I watched many of your videos, drawing along and always loving every new video that you posted.
I bought your whole Miki Falls series soon after, along with your first Mastering Manga. After finishing up with those books, I bought your second and third Mastering Manga, just this year. I'm soon to get your Brody's Ghost manga, and I know that I will love every bit of it.
I just want to thank you for being such a huge inspiration for me. Though I haven't submitted any manga on this website yet, I hope to someday, for I know that, with the help of your videos and books, I will definitely be able to. c:
Anyway, have an amazing day, and God Bless! :>
