Hey Chris,

I just dropped by to ask a little question:
How long ago did you start drawing manga?

Hi chris hart I just really want to give you my thanks for your books!
whenever i feel depressed i have always turned to your books. They always spark inspiration in me and allow me to express my sadness through drawing instead of channelling it through self harm 
thank you so much

Hello Sensei, I wanted to just warn you that I got banned from my older account: Wolfheartrocks. 
That I was underaged, even though I'm 13. I don't understand.

^^ Thanks if you read this, I'm looking forward to new books and art! :D

Would it be considered plagiarism if I were to interpret one of the characters offered in one of your guidebooks, even though it looked different, but the concept was the same?

Do you have limitations as to what you will critique?- ex. mature content, gore, etc.

I bought one of your books at a younger age but decided a book on figure drawing was better for my purposes. I prefer to draw from life and use photographs as references.

I bought your first book (Chibi & Furry) when I was in elementary school, and then I continued to buy them. Your books were really important to me when I was a kid and I passed stacks of them around to my friends whenever they got interested in art.

I wanted to thank you for making me passionate about drawing at a young age! It helped me to explore other mediums when I got older, and I look back to your books now and again because they really are pretty awesome. They have had a huge influence on me growing up!

Hello Christopher!!!  Hi its me ELL! :D  I havent kept up to date with you on my Manga art. I'm sorry, kinda got caught up on my life and the art of Manga. Sweating a little...  

I don't know if you remember me or not, but I'm the girl who asked about how to succeed in my life at my career on wanting to learn how to draw Manga/Anime and become a comic book artist!

You gave me some very good suggestions and tips. Not mention many words of encouragement. I thank you a lot for that. Thanks for everything!   I was watching your latest YouTube video on how to draw a sexy Manga Girl and I noticed that you showed us your new book!

I had been looking for it and I found it the other day and purchased it! I just wanted to say thanks again because I really love it, and I can't wait to improve my art skills more.

I also drew this out of the book -->…

I kinda went a little bit of my own style and added some changes. Hope thats okay. He looked similar to one of the characters that I like on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. So I kinda made him into that character :D

Since I havent been keeping you up to date on my Manga improvements. Here it is…

Most of them are in my Manga/ Anime folder, but theres a few I think in my Sketches fold as well. So you might want to check that out too.

Thanks again so much for everything! Really, your words of encouragement and books have helped me gain a lot, and over come many fears this year.

Holy crap it's you.  The blessing and curse of my 12 year old drawing career.  Perhaps my love for your work is out of some pleasure for an ironic aesthetic but I simultaneously despise and respect you completely.  I hope this message expresses my unwarranted mixed feelings towards you and your art and the nostalgia for the awkward years that your books brings me.  Thank you for existing and I hope you have a pleasant day.
