Hows it hangin Deviant Art! My name is Devonte Leverett, friends call me Vonte. I'm 22 years old, a self taught artist, and my long term goal in life is to produce art that opens eyes. I'm really interested in anime as well as manga. I never followed American comics but I'm not a complete idiot when it comes to Marvel and DC, and personally I prefer DC comics. Grew up following Pokemon, Yugioh, Dragonball Z, etc. You know the basic anime and manga. I eventually grew very found of Naruto, Hunter x Hunter, SAO, and a few others. Yoshihiro Togashi creator of Hunter x Hunter is probably one of if not my favorite manga author. No one quite views things like he does lol. I'm current working on my own Graphic Novel known as Forgotten. A story about a young warrior who awoke one day without any memory. He begins to travel the world to uncover mysteries of his own past and The Center Plane, residence for all things under creation. Well hope you guys stick around to see and read more about Forgotten. Later! ^_^

I've been sitting and thinking about the series Hunter X Hunter for a while and wondering if it ever would continue. I read the manga all the way to the hiatus status where Yoshi stopped because of illness or injury. I'm in no rush for the series to come back, I'm not a die hard fan who cares so much about the series and not much as the well being of the it's creator.Hopefully Yoshi is taking all the time he needs to recover. I took a while for me to start enjoying Hunter X Hunter but I eventually grew to love it. Currently my favorite manga and anime and it's still incomplete. That has to be saying something at the very least. I want to be a graphic novelist and I want to produce or create the manga the will have make those I looked to for influence proud. Yoshihiro is without a doubt my favorite manga author. He teaches in his manga (taught me, Can't speak for everyone else lol) and that is one thing I wish to do with my work. Having the audience learn while enjoying the obstacle and trail that the characters face. I believe that Yoshi did a fantastic job of this in his work, and that's why he is a great influence to me in the art world. I'm an African American young man, and Yoshihiro Togashi work's only makes me want to see and know more of his work and culture. 
Been a while since the last time I've put anything here so here goes. I been very inactive on DA and it's mainly because of some choices that I've made and chose to stick with. Most of the work I post here is original, thought and drawn up by me. I put a few fan art pieces up but chose to stop drawing those after a while. I choose not to post the original art for my manga Forgotten because I don't want to release to much and ruin the story for spectators. Then I don't want to post fan art because I want the spectators to get a chance to know more about my manga and myself instead of seeing something you've seen before. Been going at war with myself for a while with these two. But regardless I kinda want to stop drawing fan art so I can work on my on art more. This will only make the release of Forgotten sooner and I want to see the end result of the Prologue really soon. That's why I'm so inactive here. Away from the keyboard trust me you guys I'm working, but it may not look that way because I never post the end results to avoid spoilers. I'm writing this entree because I don't want people to think I've just been ghost and abusing your support. I thank all who have viewed my work, left comments, or badges. All is appreciated with me there is nothing too small. So thanks again, and bare with me as prepare one of the greatest graphic novels that will be released ^_^!
Hello deviant been hard at work with Forgotten and I haven't posted much here due to my being so busy. Please do forgive me for that. I don't want to post to much of what I've been working on yet but soon the release of some AMAZING work will be here. Thanks to everyone who is looking at my work, leaving comments and badges, all is appreciated.
