  • (I didnt know where to put this so i just stuck it in here. I think its right.)

    Well, i have been inspired to draw random people that i almost know in a manga/anemi type style.

    Two questions.

    • Anyone got any tips on it
    • Anyone want one? Send a photo and a self adressed envelope...

    :harhar:

    i dont actually know much about anything, im just inspired so any comments are helpful and welcome.

  • Thats what attracted me to it :harhar: i am joking. but i did used to look at it with a friend.

    Isnt it just cartoon porn?

    P.s. I knew i'd get a response straight away.

    Pretty much but sometimes there are tentacles involved. I had a friend who loved it :eek:

    I'm getting a rep for speedy replies :o

  • Good luck, give it a go! I've always wanted to do that, and though I love drawing, I don't think I'd be able to do it without some idea of how to do it in the first place :(

  • If they're any good i might make big posters of all the geeks and sell them to them. I will confuse them with my artist jargon

  • ooh ooh i had a manga book which told you how to draw but i gave it to shibari's daughter. sorry that was no help :o

    if you wanna do it in a specific style it's best to find a tutorial online as kaiya said!

    i have a sorta animeish style when i draw but it's got my own style in it too :eek:
    Just let the pencil lead you I guess ;)

    And show us some of your work too, would love to see it :)

  • I am really influenced by the work of Alphonse Mucha. I think its really beautiful. It almost has a cartoon feel to it because of his use of line. If anything i think it'll be like that, just with big EYES :D

  • I would have thought more people would have posted with i title like this :( i guess its a good thing that im not surround by nerds and geeks on here too.

    Off to try drawing now, i'll be back later with some sketches.

  • iused to do manga but i was always mor eof a fan of the maiasaki style (princess mononoko and howls moving castle etc) if you look on deviant art theres bound to be HUNDREDS of manga fans on there, and some examples of good and bad manga sketches too :)

    I just started by copying origional manga pieces and then once i got used to the style drew pictures for myself, its more fun than totorials because you can find the style your hands comfortable to draw in...


    ...no one needs rules on how to draw :p

    I forgot about that but it explains all the manga style drawings that i keep finding round the house:)I'll ask her what its called. She's got it over at her mums house.

    Bold = exactly why i refuse to look on there!

    wouldn't looking at 'bad' manga sketches help you realise how to improve your own though?

  • thats a good point. but it irritates me...and i dont know how to use it properly. i think im gunna give up :(

    that's very true! I'm yet to work out the mysterious ways of DeviantArt :D

    if you just draw lots and put them up here I am sure people can make 'constructive comments' :D

  • What puts me off manga is the sheer mass of japanophiles doing it quite...badly. Not bad as such...just repetitive.. I feel like theres just billions of people churning out bog standard manga. Beilve it or not there ARE rules witht his style..as thats what it is.. a style. you have to have this this and this. Type thing. Far too constrictive for me. I think people should develop their own styles, not copy another.



    But thats just my personal opinion!

  • im not trying so much to copy it, just get into drawing it. to tell the truth, im looking to do some doodles for my boyfriend. I.e. turning myself and him into that style of character and then drawing tifa from FF VII.

    I have my own style, i just felt like trying that one out.
