I actually want to encourage you not to draw Manga – well, not if you want to be a professional illustrator someday. There are just too many Manga Artists, basically all doing the same thing. It’s very unusual to find one that stands out from the rest. Mark Crilley on YouTube , certainly stands out. you can learn a huge amount about drawing and character and scenes and book pacing from Mark, but he’s got there before you. Learn, move on and adapt – find your own style.
In this video I show you a bit of how I would draw Manga, but then try to show how you can use Manga to influence your style, but don’t let it take over altogether. Manga is slick and “looks cool” but it does all tend to look the same. The artist that works for the least amount gets the job and you probably need to move to Japan too. Find your own style and stick with it.
