So it's been a really busy, rough three years and now that I'm reasonably settled in a house away from my parents, I feel like I can actually focus on where I want to go with my art (and life) for the first time. I used to be big into anime and manga and ever since I started going back to Fanime I've sort of caught the bug again.
I've been watching and reading through Shingeki no Kyojin and just finished Dramatical Murder earlier this afternoon. I definitely have been wanting to do art centered around SnK and it took like two hours for me to become addicted to Noiz and Aoba. I'm nervous about doing art for anime fandoms again, since I sort of dropped off from Naruto and Bleach almost three-four years ago. I hear Naruto is supposed to be ending soon, so I want to catch up. It's still my favorite series. I've been wanting to read Air Gear and Ao no Exorcist again as well.
I just wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions for other anime or manga to get into? I don't really know what's popular these days, or good. I also need to know what sort of art I should focus on doing for Fanime this coming May!
(Of course this doesn't mean I'm quitting the Thor fandom. It's been pretty caustic on Tumblr lately and frankly the atmosphere I've been uploading art into hasn't been the most positive in the midst of some extreme character apologists. I just need a break for a bit. I've been on DA since 2006, although I had to make a new account to change urls, before they implemented the url change function otl, so I've also missed this site a bit.)
In news other than the above, I'm returning to college in June. So I'm very excited about that.
