Is there any specific methods and structures that you use to draw manga? Like, guidelines and such :P

Hello Jamie and welcome to Crescent Panda Studio Tutorials. Ok, so it's guidelines then. As someone who is amateur, i always use guidelines and such. There are lotsa guideline technique out there and i only use these three because its the easiest for me (IMO).

Now, I will be showing you which guidelines I use and how to use them. First, we will have to use this Loli girl i drew for a workshop.

(http://img802.imageshack.us/img802/5928/battle01.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/802/battle01.jpg/)

The images that is used for the tutorial are animated pics.
1. Body frame guideline - this is the most common guideline used by many artists. It consists of making the basic frames for the body. By having the frame lines, it is easier to draw the lineart of the image detials itself.
It also helps maintain proper proportions and symmetry of the body and thus corrects the anatomy.

(http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/5743/guidelinetut01.gif) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/515/guidelinetut01.gif/)

2. Stick figure guideline - the most basic of all guidelines. Every artist started from stick figures. But, when using this guideline, it's harder to put the details and more mistakes are done on the anatomy.

(http://img688.imageshack.us/img688/7493/guidelinetut02.gif) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/688/guidelinetut02.gif/)

3. Grid lines - this is the least of the guidelines I use but is really effective if you want to copy an image with 87% accuracy rate. This is the nearest to tracing and i have only used this once way back elementary years when i was drawing my favorite physicist Albert Einstein. You only need to draw even lines (not line mine, coz i was in a hurry drawing it) on your paper and also on the art you wanna copy. Use a ruler of precise lines.

(http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/4812/guidelinetut03.gif) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/265/guidelinetut03.gif/)

Feel free to ask more questions.  :happy:

Alright, so I've got a few questions here:

Do you ever conceptualize your art before you draw it, and what is your process for doing so?

How do you deal with perspective and the changes in anatomy accordingly? Does it come with time and practice, or do you use references or guideline techniques?

How do you "sketch" your work?
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: Jamie on June 21, 2012, 12:00:41 AM
ahh, aldrich, you're just too awesome >.< :D Thanks for answering :P I'll try and use guidelines similar to you sometime :P :D
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 21, 2012, 11:26:12 PM
@ Zealapeal:

1. Do I conceptualize? Yes. I do it by thinking of the description of the art i do. I sometimes even write what i wanted to draw and imagine the outcome. The ratio of what i imagine it to be and the reality of how it looks like after drawn is 2:10. My artistic capabilities cannot match the degree of imagination i use so it depresses me sometimes.

2. So how to deal with perspective and changes in anatomy? Reference and Guidelines are necessary for these. Some professional Mangakas use a pose doll/ pose figure/ pose toy or something, i forgot the proper name for it. And since i don't have that tool, i use poses drawn by various professional and amateur artists.

So, is it time and practice? There are two origins of a good artist. The First one is through patient constant practice. By doing so, the hand will become accustomed to the micro motor function and it will be able to memorize the process of drawing your best. The Second one is Talent. Talented artist only need a few doodles for practice and they're all set.

At some point, hard working artist will envy talented ones but in the end, both of them are equal in their pursuit. Coz in the end, what matters for the artist is not how awesome their work is but how they loved to draw them.

3. So how do i sketch? Ok I'll show you.. hehehehe.. This is a simple sketch using something simple as reference.

We're gonna use this cute girl as a reference              So, here is my art. It's an animated pic with a 5 second delay.

(http://img836.imageshack.us/img836/2741/japaneseanimehaircuts5.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/836/japaneseanimehaircuts5.jpg/)         (http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/5562/tut04.gif) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/256/tut04.gif/)

Ok ok... so i have the habit of turning real life pics in semi-anime like... hehehehe

@ ilikedrawing68

Welcome to Crescent Panda Studio's 1 on 1 tutorial sessions. In here, i will teach you on what i know on how to draw manga style art. As i have said earlier, i'm still a neophyte in drawing manga so you'll only be learning the things that i know of.

So... Let's start!

TUTORIAL SESSION 1 for ilikedrawing

We are going to skip on the foundation of drawing because as i know, you already have background and experience in it. (such us how erase errors lol) So we will go to the return demonstration part.

There are 2 ways to draw a character. 1st one is Direct Idea Imagery Application -Where you draw from raw imagination. No using of references (poses, ref materials and etc) upon creating the image. Well, were not on this part yet so well come to that later on. The 2nd one is Data Referencing Imagery Application - where you use references such as images created by other artists, pose figures and etc.

On Data Referencing Imagery Application (DRIA) there are 3 types of usage.

1. TRACING - you trace the image you want to draw exactly as how it was drawn by the original artist. TRACE as in TRACE. (Well i really don't use this but this is effective for training) Use tracing materials to draw this such as transparent film, paper with oil, this waxed paper and etc. Other people may say this is cheating coz its the easiest way to copy an art. But mind you, this is hard work. By tracing, youll be developing the following: Accuracy, Control and Foresight. There is 75 - 89% accuracy in creating an exact duplicate. Meaning, it might look same but not. So tracing involves Accuracy as you have to accurately follow the lines and details of the image your tracing. Control for when you trace, you'll have to control your hand very well for it to be successfully copied. And Foresight is developed when you think ahead of the lines your gonna follow. This helps you have a bit of photographic memory as you will remember what you traced. Then again, this is only good for practice. Never use for other things.

2. MODEL COPYING - you copy via from what you see. In this, you will be using a model or a reference. You have to copy exactly what you see. Well, its like taking a picture then printing it. Just that its only picture by your mind then drawn on paper. Most artist including me use this type. You will develop the following: Independence, Eye Precision and Natural measurement calculation. All are self explanatory.

3. DETAIL REPLACING - You use either of the two previous styles when doing this. This is to make your original character based on the reference you used. (I use this) For example: You copy Son Goku, change his clothes, change the hair, draw new details and name him Son Aldrich. He is now your Original Character taken from a reference. Gets?  :biggrin:

Step One: Ok, so now we will proceed with your RD. I want you to Trace this girl below. For now, just trace.... Don't add don't subtract. Just trace exactly what you see.

(http://img860.imageshack.us/img860/7036/images6zu.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/860/images6zu.jpg/)

After you can post it here, we will move to the second step.

Whoa, interesting, I try it  ;)
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: Monsterful on June 23, 2012, 01:07:54 PM
I must say something very important:

DO NOT USE TRACING OR REFERENCES
FOR ANY KIND OF COMMERCIAL WORK.


You must make sure that you're using royalty-free material, or images for reference that you bought a license for.

I know most of you guys are hobbyists, but this is an important point.

For personal practice only, there's no problem.

I lost that site of free character reference pictures monster, could you post it again?
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: ilikedrawing68 on June 23, 2012, 02:58:51 PM
Thanks a lot for the tutorial Aldrich! I'll try to be a serious student. :)
My printer didn't do a very good job so I think I'm missing some lines in my tracing... I re-printed the image twice and tried to look at both versions while I was tracing to see if I was missing some lines.

I hope my picture looks okay, I did my best!
(http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/5612/tracing.jpg)
I used my new scanner for the occasion, hopefully this will help with the training. :)
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 23, 2012, 07:07:43 PM
@Monsterful: yeah, i specified it in the description that tracing is only good for training (practice) hehehe. And it's only intended for copying an object or drawing, not for making OC's.

@ilikedrawing68

(http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/5612/tracing.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/819/tracing.jpg/)

Ok.. so here's what you need to change...

1. Extra intersecting line
2. Don't trace shadows
3. Unfinshined details
4. Unnecessary Parts
5. Missing Parts
6. Use thinner yet sharper lines next time.

So i guess the pic is i small and lines are no clear enough. So I'm gonna change the picture. It's the same girl but has different pose. Trace it again. But now, watch for the errors i've written above.

Tip: After you done tracing, you have to look at the pic you've used and try to see the difference. If there are errors, change them without tracing anymore. And again, use thinner lines. So sharpen yah pencil.  :devil:

Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: ilikedrawing68 on June 23, 2012, 07:26:19 PM
Thank you so much for the personalized advice!  ;D I'll pay attention to the issues you mentioned for this next drawing.

I've already started tracing the new picture, and it's going much better because the lines are clearer.
I'm also starting to understand how to get the best results out of my printer and scanner, which should make things easier!

I was using one of my cheap 0.7m mechanical pencils to draw. I love these mechanical pencils, but they don't give such great results for tracing. I think I should keep them for basic sketches instead.
I've switched to a sharpened 3H pencil, so hopefully my lines will be thinner now  :D
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 23, 2012, 07:37:29 PM
Oh... my bad... it's not the same girl... lol but it's from the same anime and game.

(http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/8852/tracinggg.jpg)

This took me over one hour and a half, I did my bestest. :p
I hope it looks okay!  :D
Oh, and I have a question: what should I do when my eraser is not precise enough and erases whole lines instead of details?  :glare:
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 24, 2012, 09:31:05 AM
Ok Very good.

There are different kinds of erasers for art. What kind are you using?

For standard erasers:
To make your eraser do its job with accuracy, you'll have to cut it to the size you need. I know i'ts hurting for your best bud mr. eraser but it's the easiest way to do it. By edging your eraser, youll be able to erase the small details you want gone.

Now let's go to the next step.

1. Use any Ink pen (like fountain pen, permanent ink pen...) and thicken the lines of your drawing like what i did below.

2. Smoothen the rough lines.

(http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/8852/tracinggg.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/29/tracinggg.jpg/)

Tip: Remember the feeling of your hand when you traced her the first time and when you thickened the lines. Remember the feeling of how your hand moved when you did the tracing. This is very important for the 2nd part of our tutorial.
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: ilikedrawing68 on June 24, 2012, 10:31:35 AM
EDIT:
I use regular "school" erasers, so I guess I'll have to cut them up. I need to buy a new one though, mine are getting really small.
(http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/267/imginked.jpg)

Okay, I'm done with the inking. I took my time and I was very careful, but I still don't like it  :(
I haven't used a fountain pen in years, and I didn't like not being able to correct my lines like I could with the pencil.
Oh well, I hope it's not too bad!



EDIT:
(http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/6956/blackinking.jpg)
Turned the picture black for clarity.
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 24, 2012, 10:54:56 AM
It's ok. Hehehe. Now let's proceed to the next step.

We will now do Model Copying. The Model will be the same pic you traced. This time, it's for model use only. Copy it as you see from the pic you traced but all you need to do is a DETAILED sketch. Use Guidelines as much as possible. The lines doesn't need to be clear. Use strokes like there's no tomorrow yet apply light pressure. Use your lightest pencil.

Stroke your lines like your shading... something like this...
(http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/2448/tut02.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/560/tut02.jpg/)

Watch carefully your PROPORTIONS, SYMMETRY and MEASUREMENTS. Draw slowly but surely. Concentrate. Use eraser as much as possible if you get errors or something that you believe feels wrong. Don't waste paper by redrawing, just use your eraser until you can't use it no more.

Use free lines, not the hard segmented ones.
(http://img534.imageshack.us/img534/6338/tut03.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/534/tut03.jpg/)
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: ilikedrawing68 on June 24, 2012, 11:36:51 AM
I got carried away and did somewhat more than a sketch, I hope it looks okay :D
I used my lightest pencil (4H).
I plan on buying 5H pencils and up when I find some, and a new eraser.

(http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/222/sketchf.jpg)
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 24, 2012, 08:37:24 PM
Ok.. looks good. But i see some good strokes and i see some bad strokes. When sketching, your strokes should comprise either Head-Tail (you can do this by: Drop pencil to start a poin - stoke - carry it up while moving) or Tail-tail (Drop while moving - stoke - Carry up while moving). This gives you smoother lines.

Here are some correction with your Model Copying.

1. Eye distance should be one eye length. It's like making 3 connected eyes yet erasing the middle one. Well, we will be doing this on the second session. Heheheh.

2. Face is too wide. Watch out for measurements on hair-to-face and face-to-eyes

3. Some sketch lines are good some are rather rough point to points.

(http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/222/sketchf.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/52/sketchf.jpg/)

Ok here's something I sketched, (Don't tell anyone coz i'm not supposed to use my right hand for a week.. heheh.. well it's just a doodle anyway, a little exercise wont hurt... right? lol)

(http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/2227/1163957vb.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/215/1163957vb.jpg/)

So if you have vacant time, keep practicing with the same girl over and over again until you get the same result as the one you traced. Note: Remember the feeling of your hand when you traced her.

Ok. Lets proceed to Step 3: We gonna do Detail Replacing.

Model Copy this Girl

Things to do:

1. Take away hood
2. Replace the hair with any type you want
3. remove eye glasses
4. Modify anything you want but the girl should still like herself and the pose should still be same. Imagine your a wardrobe manager of an idol. You change her appearance yet she will remain herself and people will still recognize her.

Excuse me, but if I may quickly intervene to ask a simple question...?

How do you train your skills, Aldrich?
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 26, 2012, 07:38:09 AM
@Zeal: Hmmm.. That's a rather complex question hehehehhe. If you want the answer, you'll have to listen at my life's experience.  :biggrin: I was never an artist at first but i am a genius (inspired by hanamichi sakuragi from slam dunk) kekekekekek  :tongue:. I just kept on drawing anything i liked. Before, the only things i drew where the ones i  saw on TV, anime series and such. It started with the first anime i liked which was Dragon Ball (the kid goku). There was a point in my life where i got in a slump (Like what happened to ilikedrawing68 before). And i never wanna draw a single thing. But then i heard a classmate talk about making a story. I was curious and joined them. It was a comic of different anime characters joined together with a different story line. (totally plagiarism) And i was drawin all the characters, i was not the best artist but certainly better than the rest of my classmates at that time. So i kept drawing again (characters such as Kenshin Himura, Yusuke Uramishi, Recca Hanabishi and many more) and practiced with Model Copying which later on developed into Direct Data Imagery Application (as i have seem to memorized what i religiously drew.

When i reached highshool, My dad bought me a Magazine (of which i thought was a coloring book). It's title was "How to draw Manga: Vol 1" Then my eyes opened to the world of Manga. I kept on practicing with manga characters since then and somehow made lotsa original characters.

So how do i train my skills? I dunno lol, i never thought i had skills... hehehehe... But as Naruto has said "There are no shortcuts to be a Hokage..." Therefore it takes time, effort and support to reach your goal on achieving a certain level of mangaka. (unless you are gifted with drawing talents or took art classes)

Note: Model copying and Detail Replacing are training methods i use. They are simple to do and you are free to use varied ideas to achieve the art YOU want (not the art people wanna see).

Let me use an illustration. Newly cut rocks are always edgy, rough and sharp. But if you put those rocks in the beach, as time will pass, it will smoothen. Why? because the water and sand religiously kept rubbing on it. It is same with an amateur artist. At first, his art is rough and not good. But as time will pass by, with constant and religious practice, his art will be smooth and fine.  :blush:

Good to know! Looks like I'm on the right track then.  :D Thank you! --- Interesting illustration by the way, but it works.  ;)

Edit: Another question: What is the purpose of the circle when drawing a head? I have NEVER used it in my drawings personally, yet so many artists use it. Is there some secret to it that I don't know about? I keep thinking of these questions one after another, so my apologies there.

The Circle is for the head base. Majority of manga artists use this as it is the easiest way to make a frame for the head.

For example:
(http://img560.imageshack.us/img560/6059/circletut.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/560/circletut.jpg/)
You make a circle. (sorry if my circle is not perfect lol)

(http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/528/circletut02.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/837/circletut02.jpg/)
Then make the balance guidelines and draw you character...

(http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/9630/circletut03.jpg) (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/262/circletut03.jpg/)
Then VIOLA! you now have a drawn character... (It's supposed to be trunks but my hand is way off today)
So that's how you use a circle guide.  :dance:
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: Zealapeal on June 30, 2012, 11:30:39 PM
Perfect. That makes sense now. Might have to start implementing that in my drawings.  :clapping:

I wonder if it works for side profiles and other angles?
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: Ryan on June 30, 2012, 11:39:18 PM
Circles or egg guidelines for the head generally are used in any perspective of the head. In fact, circles and elipses(which are basic forms) can be used to draw even something as complex as the human body.
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on June 30, 2012, 11:41:54 PM
Yeah, it will work.

Teacher, I have watched your whole tutorial and it's awesome, looking forward to it.
Are you still doing it? I mean, I want to participate but this topic has stopped for over a year.
If you are willing to continue it, where should I start, the beginning(tracking)? If so, I don't have scanner, so I can only track It on my computer, it would be vertical, is that okay?  :sure:
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: AldrichCrescent on November 06, 2013, 12:16:06 AM
Hey there. Well, the "beginning" depends on your current knowledge on drawing manga. We can start from doing sketch dummies to details or grid lines to guide lines.

Well, from this point onwards, i won't be using my original tutorials. I will be referencing some techniques from tutorials made by artists': Ben Dunn, Fred Perry and etc. :D *From the "How to Draw Manga" series"
Title: Re: Aldrich Crescent's Tutorials
Post by: Dumax on November 06, 2013, 12:15:57 PM
Thank you. I'm not good at drawing manga, somewhere around at the level of zero, I had this idea to start drawing manga just a week ago, because I tried and its fun. I have some experience with painting/drawing etc. art from my school, but its not so good. I also was drawing manga when i was in second grade, third, something like that, but it wasn't for long. I did few drawings this week myself with second tip which you mentioned(redrawing same picture yourself). I think i could send you those drawings that i draw and those images that I used for copying. I think that's all about me :dance:.So how will it be, Genius?

P.S. It doesn't matter what you use for teacher others, is it originally your tutorial/teachings or someone's else, as long as you are willing to help others its very good  :blush:

Not sure. I think there's enough information that you provided for the very beginning. I'm also not gonna disturb you with all the minor problems. I was just hoping if you would still continue this topic on your own, anything would come in handy for me, because I'm not even sure what to ask yet. For now I am going to simply practice and so on...

Oh sure.  :clapping: You can join.  :dance:

Well ok, my next tutorial would be the body's small parts. I'm not really that good with detailed parts as I learned how to draw stuff from anime and not real things. (Like i learned drawing a "goku"-akira toriyama sensei- without learning how to draw a human body... well, if we think goku as human that is... lol) So i'm not gonna go over those "laws" in drawing them but i'm gonna get to "How to Draw Manga: Body Parts"....

So, first Body Part are the "EYESSSSS"... not just one, but lots of em (as I added the -SSS's)

[Tutorial Under Construction] I had to re-install my OS... so i have to re-install all my drivers and software.... T_T
this will we done soon....

It was then Lorenx realized that the timestamp read June 16th, 2012. Somehow, she realized, nobody gave a single care in the world toward any of this for an entire year. It didn't seem right. How could nobody have seen this? Were all the other members of the forum blind? Was she blind?

No.

Lorenx would put an end to this. These three requirements wouldn't prevent anybody now. Everyone will be able to ask questions, and equality will reign free once again. She would be the one to stop the tyranny, to put an end to such requirements, to dismantle the forces of oppression, once and for all.

i'm just saying, not too long aldrich was using known for something else, and still calls himself a genius?

doesn't matter how long he posted that, theres the modify button. shouldn't he allow room for improvement for the others?

its just like saying "you can learn my way, but anyone who draws better than me, can't help me or others who accepted my help."
