Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw with the Manga sketching style. I'm just going to do a face. So, what I'm going to do is I'm going to with a line kind of going like that and it's kind of going to be a profile a little bit. The main thing to remember when you're drawing Manga is just to keep a lot of angles, especially on the body parts. When you get to clothes you can do some folds and things like that and it gets a little bit different. But I'm just going to show you how to draw a face. So, what I'm going to do is just kind of start there and this is going to be the chin area. What I'm going to do here is, this is going to be the top of the forehead. maybe draw some eyebrows here. And maybe you want to make them thicker on one side. Now, usually Manga eyes are going to be very big. So, what I'm going to do is I'm actually going to use my white marker. And I'm going to do kind of a line at the top here and a line here. I'm going to do another line down here and a line here. Then I'm going to do, make them blue, so what I'm going to do is going to kind of bring a line kind of going like that, and the same thing on this side. And bring it up just like that. Now, you're going to leave, a lot of times on eyes of course they have, they have that signature Manga reflecting glare on them. So, I'm going to do just a couple of circles there. And then just fill this all in. Usually Manga eyes are all just kind of one color. And I just kind of do it like that, real quick. I'm getting back to my white marker. I'm going to fill this in here. And maybe there's a, another reflecting glare there. And then what I'm going to do is I'm going to do the nose. His nose kind of goes down like that. It's very simple. And the mouth, it kind of goes along like that, down and up. He's a little happy Manga fellow. And then what I'm going to do is I'm going to take my yellow. Actually no, maybe I'll take the green, and do his hair. Just make it very spiky. And you can do the hair however you want. I like to make it just very spiky and just kind of keep it that Manga style. And if you need to erase, you can go ahead and break through that. That's just important to have the outline there. But I'm going to do a couple of bangs on this guy. So, that's about right. Maybe complete with the neck here. All right guys. And that is how you draw with the Manga style. So, good luck and stay creative.
