My name is Gabriel, I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. Growing up, I always wanted to draw stuff like the cartoons I watched. Things like He-man, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, GI-JOE, Those were my Saturdays growing up. Then I moved to Ohio with my parents and learned about shows like Sonic the hedgehog, Dragonball, Gundam, Robotech and Anime in general.
I was addicted to Anime as most of us do with it. I started with Comics/manga which was in a way rare to find where I lived because you go back about 10 to 12 years ago and it just wasn't as poplar as say Marvel, and Dark horse comics. So finding manga like Dragonball, Ranma 1/2, Naruto, Tenchi Muyo, Sailormoon, ect. You had to actually buy it imported or be lucky to find a comic shop who carried the stuff. Specially actual anime its self was hard to find. Least for me it was, I never got to go out and explore, my parents were poor, and I was even poorer.
Boy was it expensive and still is. After a while shows like Toonami , and Nickelodeon, WB all started showing anime like Digi-mon, Poke-mon, Zoids, we all in America know these lineups. Also around that time the internet was starting to get better and you could search for things all day. Specially when Yahoo and Google came around. Yeah I am that old XD
All in all anime and such are so abundant now a days. If I grew up within the last 6 years in my teens I would prolly be a hardcore weeaboo/furry/Cosplayer XD Now I am just dude who watches Anime here and there and draws whatever HAHA.
I dont have enough fan art in my gallery to justify my likes :/ I am working on fixing that soon. Anyways Thanks for all the faves and followers!
