Mad About Manga REVIEW – How To Draw Japanese Manga Anime

Japanese Manga is no longer considered a pop culture. It’s established a foothold in the mainstream entertainment media. You can find such evidence on television outlets for example movies, television and books. Today Japanese Manga is not lumped together within the same category for example cartoons and kid’s shows. 

You have American cutesy cartoons for example Tom and Jerry and then you will find adventure packed, often bloody animations such as Akira. Japanese Manga can be graphic and violent. Also it can be cute and non violent. If you’ve watched enough Manga and also have become a true fan than maybe you’ve felt that urge with you to get a pencil and draw. 

If that has happened then you’re not by yourself. Japanese Manga has excited and thrilled a brand new generation of young talented artist and potential Manga masters.

Japanese Manga has a variety of styles the same as traditional paintings. Certain Manga characteristics have exaggerated physical proportions for example large heads, short arms and legs having a squat torso to bring everything together. This Manga drawing style is called “Chibi”. You can find types of Chibi drawings from the popular animated series “Naruto”. Plus some are perfectly proportioned as if they were actual people.

There are the greater upscale Manga animations such as the popular movie “Appleseed”. In this animation you will find the characters are drawn more realisticly with a certain Manga flair. After all if we’d want to watch actual humans we would watch a live film. Although the movie “Akira” was done through Computer Generated Imagery (CGI), the underlying facts are all still filled with Manga style and essence.

Listed here are the physical attributes that Manga characters possess:

Hair – The hair is generally suped up like a lot of gel continues to be applied. One big tip about drawing hair would be to shape the character’s skull first. Many newcomers draw the hair without first sketching out the foundation the skull. By working in the skull up you can have a better concept of how the hair need to look and fall into place.

Eyes – The eyes are the windows from the soul. You’ll be able to draw the eyes to show more emotions compared to face. Manga characters have larger than life eyes. Additionally , you will notice that the eyes are more animated so that emotions could be revealed. Though Manga characters have been in general Asian, they do not possess Asian features.

Arms, Legs and Body – Again Manga characters can come in all size and shapes. If you watch the Manga series like “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” you will notice how exaggerated the character’s body frame is. Usually the action genre of Manga will have characters with outrageous muscles bulging from everywhere possible. 

But many times Manga character’s physical attributes belie their true powers and abilities. Thus giving Manga series tension and drama. There is nothing better to watch then an under dog hero defeat a much more powerful opponent.

Costume and Clothes – Some people may consider such a Manga character wears is useless detail but I strongly disagree. What a character wears defines who the smoothness is. Similar to a live film. Costumes give heroes their coolness factor. Everyone knows most super heroes may have muscles underneath, but with no costume there’s just little else to increase concerning the Manga character’s origin and personality.

No matter which kinds of Manga you want to draw, the best things you can do would be to learn from watching or reading your preferred Manga series. Attempt to emulate your preferred Manga artist’s characters. Those are the best places to start in your drawing journey. Practice drawing Manga and reading more is the greatest way to learn how to draw Japanese Manga.
