In September, we had Addie from the Artistic Dragon teach a workshop on Manga Character Drawing. Here are some helpful tips and highlights from the program.
1.Draw light! Don’t be heavy handed when you draw
2. Start Simply with circles and basic shapes
3. Break things down to simpler shapes if you’re attempting to draw something hard
4. Don’t overlook simple things like a nose – they can frame the face since they’re in the middle of the head.
Also be sure to check out our drawing books such as The Master Guide to Drawing Anime by Christopher Hart
