Hello and welcome to Keba's Anime and Manga Place (KAAMP for short)! Here at KAAMP, I write about anime and manga that I have seen/read as well as my views on them. I'll also post about my original stories from time to time.

Just beware that some of my posts contain spoilers. I'll put them in spoiler tags just in case.

KAAMP's history: KAAMP was created in July 2002 by yours truly. It was a sloppy-looking website on Yahoo's now defunct Geocities. I posted my anime fan art on that site. Also, for a time, I posted my thoughts on the few anime series that I had seen. Now that I look back on it, my thoughts were rather ill-informed (is that even a word?) because I had only seen bits and pieces of anime dubs. Now that I've seen more series, I think that my commentary on various anime will be a little better than before.

So, come on in and stay awhile! KAAMP is now in session.

The Story of My Online Life

Me: I'm going to undertake this art challenge!

Also me: *Messes up and disappears for a week or so.*

Needless to say, I'm not going to finish OCtober. It's like all the inspiration drained out of me. I don't know why. Maybe I'll get my groove back before the end of the month. My goal is three more drawings before October ends. Let's see if I can accomplish that at least.

Oooooooooops (Updated)

I forgot about OCtober for the past two days! O_O I'll catch up, but I think the next couple off sketches will be headshots.

Update: Well, I've had as many days off as I've had on. Something tells me I'm not going to finish this. I'm considering wrapping up my Destination characters' sketches and calling it quits. I hate to say it, but I'm a bit burned out. Also, my wrist started hurting again.

Already Slipping Up

Well, guys, I don't have an OC drawing for today. I had to attend a memorial service for a family friend (my aunt's boyfriend's father, to be exact). I just wanted to show my support for my aunt's boyfriend and his family. Now it's almost 8:30 and I don't have much time for a sketch... unless I start now and post a half finished one.

So I'm going to redouble my efforts for tomorrow and try to get two sketches in. This may not end well, but I'm still going to try. Wish me luck.

My OC October Plan (Maybe)

I have a plan for what I'm going to do for OCtober. I'm going to sketch them out using Clip Studio Paint, and however far I get is what I post. My goal is to have at least a clean sketch of each character. If I get to inking, even better. Coloring is better still, but I doubt I'll get that far. Once OCtober is done, I can finish the drawings and re-upload them.

Now here's the problem. I'm 10 OCs short. Yeah, my current stories don't have large casts, for the most part. I mean, Destination has literally six characters, and two don't even have names!

So, what do I do? I have a few ideas. Add minor characters, add old OCs (which I'd rather not do), or do some concept art for new characters. What do you guys think? Feel free to chime in if you have any other ideas, too!

The Internet Is Made of Cats

I have this idea for a drawing which involves cats. Anime cats, of course. I just can't think of enough of them.

This is where you guys come in. List some anime cats that you like. They can even be based on a cat, or be known to take the form of a cat sometimes. The only rule is that they must resemble a cat-- not a catgirl or anything of that nature.

I'm looking for at least six cats. You can list more than six if you like. Now, gimme dem kittehs!

I'm aware that I made a post like this a few years back. I just don't know where it is now.
