Group Info

We accept both Traditional and Digital Artwork. If you are wondering why we are called "Digital-Manga-Artist" and why we are accepting Traditional Artwork, here is my interpretation of the club's name:

Digital= Anime/Manga that is drawn or mainly edited by a computer.

Manga= hand drawn with pencil, marker, or etc. Manga is mostly hand drawn, or at least sketches are.
