Mr.Hart, I have one question for you. We all know that you make really awesome drawing books and all that neat stuff. But do you ever plan on making your own comic/manga? 

Just curious.

I had no idea you were on deviantart until today! o:
And I'm sure you're too busy to see most of your comments on here, youtube, facebook etc. but I just wanted to say I've been a longtime fan of yours for nearly a decade it feels like. Thanks for the work you do in helping artists learn, grow, and become better at what they love doing! I'm not the greatest artist, but I improved a lot from your books and they hold a special place on my bookcase. c:

I had no idea you were on DA :) Your books proudly sit upon the shelf in my workspace and remain a great source of inspiration. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Hello, Mr. Hart. If it's no trouble, would you mind giving me some tips/techniques on coloring with colored pencils? Seeing that it's most definitely possible for me to improve (as I'm still pretty young), I thought of asking a professional like you.

Here are some links to a few of my drawings to show the level I'm at:
Chibi Dolphin!Haru and Shark!Rin

Also, thank you so much for taking the time to interact with your commenters!

Hi, there. Have you considered creating a book with a little more diversity? :3 Like maybe some more body types for women. Men have so many body types in manga, but women don't have that much of a chance to shine!

Is there a upcoming book called " Drawing Mythical Creatures and Fantasy Beings " where artists could draw bestairy, humanesque creatures from Greek Mythology and even more fairies?

Hello Mr.Hart ! I know you must have better things to do but how do i make characters more intense or exaggerated? Most my artwork is pretty plain and I'm not very good at showing expressions.…
How can i make something like this more expressive? How do i make someone go "Wow, theres a story there..." ?
If you could give me just a critique and maybe some advice for any future works would be great! Thank you and have a great day!!

Hi Mr.Hart how are you today? I hope all is well. I hate to annoy you for your time, but I found a drawing of mine that I did a month Ago (that was posted here) that I would like to redo soon. What are some tips you would give about it ? It is just a sketch but what do you like and dislike about it if I may ask? Thank you for your time. Here is the link :)…

Thank you so much for taking the time to interact with your fans. I just recently got into your books and they helped me out a bunch, I've been doing art since God knows when, and now that I want to do my dream as my life long career I been taking my drawings to a whole new level because of the help of these books. I know the road will be tough but I just wanted to give my thanks for all you have done. 
Also I wanted to know if you could give me any tips on my art? On how I can get better? :) 
Any advice would be greatly appreciated :D

I think you're an amazing artist.  I especially love your animal artwork. I know some people are too harsh on you when it comes to manga/anime, but them saying you're automatically a horrible artist in a whole is nothing but a huge stretch. I hope to see any animated/comic projects from you if you have any in mind. :)

You probably get this a lot, but it's awesome to see you have a DA page! Your how to draw books were a big factor in perfecting my art, and it still use them from time to time for references. I'm hoping one day my art will at least look professional like yours. Have a nice day! ^^
