How To Draw Manga – Manga is one of the most popular forms of animation, and can be very difficult to draw if you don’t know what you’re doing. Have you ever wanted to draw Manga? Here are a few steps to get you started.
Step 1:

Gather the basic drawing tools. These should include pencils that are made for drawing, a pencil sharpener; some sort of drawing paper, an eraser, and a special kneaded eraser that will help you achieve the Manga look.

Step 2:

Draw some basic shapes. These can include cubes, cones, and spheres.

Step 3:

Seek out a book that details drawing techniques. It is best to find one that offers step by step lessons to make the process more simple.

Step 4:

Take a drawing class at your local vocational school. Once you have the basics down, Manga becomes very simple to draw.

Step 5:

Study Manga. You have to know the style before you can draw it yourself. Make sure that you know how to draw all of the basic Manga styles, and have a good understanding of how characters look in manga.

Step 6:

Find some sort of photo-editing software. You will also need a scanner to import your drawings. After they have been imported, you can color and stylize them using the photo editing software. We recommend Photoshop.

Step 7:

Ink the drawings. This will make the scanned lines more refined, and will make it easier for you to color. Once you have the lines refined, you can begin coloring them.

Step 8:

Delve deeper into Manga. Start studying more elaborate drawings so you can familiarize yourself with the more advanced techniques. Remember, it is not alright to steal designs, but it is alright to use them for inspiration.

Step 9:

Continue to practice. Manga is not easy to draw, and the only way to get good at drawing it is to do it as much as possible.
