I’ve been researching the best way to learn to draw Manga for several years now and I have finally found a secret path to master it that I am going to share with you in a second . I collected about 20 “How to draw manga” books and countless DVDs. My goal was to be able to draw great manga characters from memory and to design my own that would look as great as the manga characters I love. Can you relate?
After many years of struggling I finally got “enlightened” after reading a bio of one of my favorite manga artists. In his own words:
“… I would say that I learned about 80% of drawing from manga and only about 20% from books. I started by copying manga and only later the anatomy books filled in the details for me. There is no better way than learning directly from another manga artist . . .”
