I've been wanting to become a manga artist since i was 10 years old. From then on, i started practising, drawing and developed my own artistic style. The only problem was, is thinking up a manga story. It became a stressful time for me in the first year of high school. This is because there were other students/artists in my year that are better than me at drawing. Devastatingly, I even gave up on drawing. But it took me a long time to realise and accept that there will always be people out there in the world, who's better than you. But you can always try and become better than them. And so then i continued drawing. Not that i was only competing with the students in my school, but especially my brother. We were like apple and pear, competing of who will create the best manga. Funnily we were twins, so when ever we share our ideas, we would end up having the same concept! We would argue endlessly, about idea stealing and such. We rectified the issue by not even talking about each others manga. It was the only way so that we would never suspect each other of stealing each others ideas.
