Comment from Manga Artist Shitara Matane

At first, you might be thinking about what kind of manga you should bring to Digital Shokunin, or having doubts about whether they’ll even hire you if you’re not used to commercial work. But you have nothing to fear! Even if you’re not used to commercial work, the editors will give you friendly advice, as well as their full support through meetings, so even if you want to work as a professional manga artist, but don’t feel confident, just try sending in some of your work for them to look at. I had the same experience, and I can say that it could lead to an opportunity you never would have expected. What’s more, Digital Shokunin handle a wide range of genres, so you might also have the opportunity to get involved with work of the kind that you’ve never drawn before, and discover that you can have a lot of fun drawing it once you try.
