43 pages on how to draw manga by rocket-child 43 pages on how to draw manga by rocket-child

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

I wrote this book for a school project a few years ago. Since then I've gotten better at drawing and know a lot more than before.
However I realized that it would be a waste for it to just sit on a shelf with no one to read it, so I decided to post it here so that it could be of use to someone.

Please enjoy.

The book covers points such as: materials used, manga genres, character sheets, scripting and the process of drawing a manga.

For a school project, its just as extensive as a professional "how to" book, from the correct papers and pen sizes to use, to the toning sheets, etc. So you deserve a lot of credit, as this is a praise-worthy project; it is not so much opinionated as it is giving essential information for getting started and working through the process. You also give a decent amount of examples and walk-throughs, something that not even the professional books always have (many rely just on reference and expect you to pick up the slack and that's not very educational).

To be honest, I'm self-taught and while I did purchase some of these types of books with the hope they would help when I first started drawing anime, I ended up not using them, didn't find them very helpful, and I haven't used them since I bought them many years ago. Instead, I relied on my own ability to draw, perceive, and render and I ended up learning more on my own than from what a book suggested. Having said that however, this is still an essential collection of information that you have, even if just for the materials you'll need, and the tips on how to make it successful; again, its more than can be said for alot of the 'pro' books.

I hope your project was successful, because it should be set apart from the slew of books that are currently on the market and sold as "how to" when they're really just saying "Here, I did it, now you do it". Your book takes the time to ease people through it, and I would hope that it would help people. :)

Well a lot of the project involved various forms of research, where I had to analyse what published 'how to draw' books were missing and improve upon it. So it's good to see that I've hit the mark in that aspect.

I noticed that a lot of books tried to teach the manga 'style', where they just draw characters, instead of how to tell a story. So I made that one of my priorities.
