Works that inspire me to greatness



:iconthepanelsessions: :iconmanga-united:


Amit Singh
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Physics major, Computer Science geek, wannabe Story-Teller, and eternal student of the arts. NOT a Lawyer.

Founder of The Panel, a broadcast on YouTube discussing online manga/comic community issues/events. For more info, click on the YouTube link below or see :iconthepanelsessions:



When I draw, I'm set free. Anything is fair game, my interpretation is front and center, and no one can ignore my work because of its visual components(whether good or bad). Everyone has something to say about art, even if they don't say it.

When I draw, people know exactly who I am. They can see me, even if it's only subconsciously registered in their brains. They get a sense of my struggles, my personality, and my views on the things we all experience. And as I mature in my skill, more of me becomes visible.

When I draw, people tell me "You're improving!" and "man, seeing you come such a long way is awesome!". There's no hesitancy, no false flattery. There's legitimate appreciation, and you don't even have to know an artist intimately to express it. And there's legitimate critique too.

When I draw, It's not about being on the top, the middle, or the bottom. It's about starting from point A, and getting to point B, on my time and in my own way. No two paths are the same. Sure they may intersect, or draw close, but I'll always have my own way to follow.

When I draw, my role or importance to society means nothing. My power lies in my pen, and my imagination is a force to be reckoned with. There is no one greater than I in the world of my own ideas, and all that I can envision, I can produce using the skills of my craft. It may not be perfect, but it doesn't have to be. Because my ideas are mine, and they are great as they are and have been interpreted.

When I draw, all things fade away. The immaterial, the unnecessary. The woes of life, and the feelings of regret, remorse, and anger I direct at myself. My own dissatisfaction with my life or where I've gone. My decisions and how I've coped with the consequences.

When I draw, I can see the horizon of untapped potential; of ideas waiting to be discovered, uncovered, and expressed in the way only I know how. 

When I draw, I can accept the efforts of others who draw, and come to an understanding with them. And together we can draw some more.

When I draw, suddenly the world becomes a whole lot larger... and a lot brighter too.

When I draw, I am truly, without a doubt, alive. 


As long as I draw, I'll never stop moving forward.

Thank you very much for the watch! I appreciate it! ^_^
By the way, I like your profile picture. It's great. :D
ShinguAmito Feb 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Hoh, it was my pleasure. What you do with your art is stuff I only dream of 0_0

If you are referring to the levitating pizza piece, then I thank you for supporting my (idiocy)creativity xD

:D If you have humour and creativity then you are better than many professional, yet unoriginal artists. Or at least in my opinion. :D
Haha, thanks, I'm not that good but I try. :3
ShinguAmito Feb 26, 2014  Student General Artist
oh wow, I don't think I deserve to be considered that highly, even if I do have humor and creativity (lol, probably not :P ), but I do agree that there are artists who get fame off of just doing work from others' property rather than making their own stuff. Kinda gets me bummed every so often.

You're very good :D Trust me! (Even though you have no basis to do so, haha xD)

Hey man as a member of the webcomic community, I just thought about a great idea that I think would "crowd-source" MangaMagazine. If you're interested in looking into it its just a suggestion. 

Why not forge a Review Team? 

I've watched a couple of your videos of you guys discuss about web-comics. The Review Team will get involved in regularly reviewing suggested comics on YouTube which can be viewed on this Facebook page. It will be MangaMagazine Reviews or something? I've already noticed some members in the community communicating together about specific comics and their ideas. They should totally do this. What do you guys think?

I'll send you a note regarding this :)
