Can we all just appreciate how inspirational Nakamura Shungiku is?
I mean. She started back in 2002 with disproportionate bodies, limbs and giant yaoi hands and if you look at her art thirteen years later, you’ll see how much she improved. No more extreme yaoi hands and weird bodies but just insanely beautiful art.

She never really gave up on her art and she kept on pulling out more and more volumes of her manga, practicing her art until it’s turned into the beautiful and distinctive style it is today.
I think she deserves all the applause in the world OwO

Dear all fellow artists out there, don’t give up just yet. You might have yaoi hands and you might have weird bodies on your paper, but that’s fine.
Keep on drawing and someday, you’ll get your distinctive style too~ ᕦ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)ᕤ

Becoming friends with Ella was like immediately having a truth serum added to my life. If I’m conflicted about something and I need a clear-cut answer, Ella is the one I call first. There is no gray area with her. There is yes or no, right or wrong, this or that. Life is so much easier when you have a friend who shoots straight. And she’s so intelligent, her advice is always spot on.
