How To Draw Manga Creatively Off-And-Online?
Do you have the passion for drawing manga? If so, are you willing toinvest your time and money on the resources that will help you be amanga pro even without experience or qualifications? If you are, thenread on as I am going to show you how to draw manga creativity off andonline.Firstly, you should have read and seen many manga comics andanimation. You should have a mental mindmap on how most mangacharacters look like, their common characteristics, typical behaviour andthe settings around them.Not just humans but animals, aliens and even robots. You should alsohave a draft story in place if you feel the story is not good enough andhow you can make it much better and more appealing to fans. At first glance, you might not understand what I am talking about. Stillthat is what I have been doing for the first 15 years of my life sincestarting to sketch at 16.That was in 1990. I bought some
Robotech
comics and one mega graphicbook featuring all the 200 characters, robots and vehicles at a bookstorerecommended by cousin. If you have similiar passion, you will certainly feel and do the same to develop and improve your drawing skills.
 
The next thing I do is buy an A4 size drawing block. Then I starteddrawing. As my foundation is not strong then, I copied some of thecharacters from the graphic book.The first character I have drawn was Lynn Minmei. She is the young girl who brought the aliens
downfall with her enchanted songs in
 Macross.
 Then I draw Rick Hunter, his sworn big brother Roy Fokker, Lisa Hayesand other characters. My objective here is to get a feel of what it is like todraw manga characters.Gradually I started developing my own style after watching otheranimation series like
 Akira, Gundam, Patlabor 
and
Silent Mobius.
Thoseartistes such as Haruhiko Mikimoto of 
 Macross,
Yoshiyuki Tomino of 
Gundam
and Kia Asamiya of 
Silent Mobius
have their distinctive drawingstyles and trademarks.In contrast to most manga drawing books, I did not start out with circles,squares, rectangles and triangles. I used my memory to draw thosecharacters. The result turned out to be too simple and not assophisticated as what I saw in comic books.Later I bought books that taught me how to draw manga.Using the techniques and strategies they taught, I found myself progressing faster since I did this every single day.
 
 Then from characters, I progressed to drawing machines like robots, vehicles and animals. It was from then something hit me.I know a classmate who was extremely good at drawing robots. But hedid not want to share his secret with me nor with anyone else. Yet seeinghim draw then and myself drawing now, I kind of felt a deja vu and an ahha moment. It was from that moment I started creating my first comicstory based on what I drew. With that said, here are my 9 basic steps on how to draw mangacreativity offline.1. Read plenty of manga comics and observe the characters styles by different artistes.2. Bought them as references and then materials and tools you neededlike merchanical pencils, markers, rulers, compasses, projectors and plain A4 drawing block of paper.3. Copied from manga books your favourite characters to get a first handfeel of drawing manga.4. Draw your own characters on fresh set of blank A4 paper in your ownstyle without copying5. Improvise your characters with references from books that teach youhow to draw manga.
