- A desire to learn to draw manga
Hey, a friend of mine asked me to teach him how to draw manga or anime. I told him the best place to get started is with manga faces and hair, as this is the most different aspect of manga from comics.
That spawned this awesome course just waiting for you to check out. The first few lessons are free, so you can see if you like the teaching style, and to see if you learn anything.
I'm sure you will not only learn something but love the free preview lessons enough to buy the course to learn the rest.
Once finished, in about five hours, you will fully understand how to draw manga or anime faces and hair, from eyes, to noses, to mouths, and even expressions/emotions.
So, if like my friend, you have a passion to learn how to draw manga or anime, then check out the free preview lessons.
The course is structured with video lessons that actually teach you methods for drawing manga faces and hair and emotions. This isn't your typical type of drawing tutorials you might find elsewhere.
These lessons will actually teach you and improve your skills. You will learn to draw manga faces, guaranteed or your money back.
You can take the whole course with just pencil and paper, although, I mostly draw on a Wacom Cintiq with Manga Studio 5. However, this is not required. Just watch the first few videos and it will make perfect sense why you only need a pencil and paper, and perhaps an eraser. :)
- For the person who just wants to draw manga to the professional artists
In this video, you will learn a little about the art instructor and what you will learn in this course.
All you need to take this course is a pencil and a piece of paper, and perhaps a ruler. However, you can also draw digitally, with a tablet, such at the Wacom Cintiq.
In this video, I show why I prefer to draw with a tablet, and why drawing with a tablet is pretty much the same as drawing with a pencil.
The easiest view of the manga face to learn, IMO, is the front view, so we will start there. Also, after you know how to draw the front view of the manga face and head, it is much easier to apply those measurements to the side view and the 3/4s view.
In manga, noses are simplified, but they still need to be learned. There are many styles of noses of which I teach the most popular ones.
Manga mouths are also highly simplified and reduced in size, but still, we must learn the basic shapes that make of the mouth. Only then, can you truly understand how and why the manga mouth is simplified.
We also learn how to draw the most popular types of manga mouths.
And finally, we learn how to draw manga emotions, which is a mix of how we change the eyes, eyebrows, and mouth. We learn to draw the most popular emotions used in manga, and how to mix and match different emotional eyes and mouths to get new emotions.
Some asked me what my settings are for Manga Studio 5, so here they are. I also talk about why I now prefer Manga Studio 5 over Photoshop.
