Chapter 1 Preview Sample
This course will cover all of the basics that you need to know to know to create your own manga character! This tutorial will be comprised of 5 chapters, each of which will be divided up into two sections. You’ll start by getting an overview of how to draw a base for your character. This will function as your drawing blueprint, and will set the foundation for the pose and context that your character will be in.
As you’re constructing your base, you’ll need to keep in mind the general age of the character, since this determines not only the posture and pose, but how many heads tall you’ll need to make the base. This tutorial will cover how to draw infants, teens, elders, and everything in between, so you’ll feel confident knowing how to properly depict the age of your character.
Another important factor is the background and ethnicity of your creation. Because manga already has stylization in the facial region, you’ll need to know how to accurately choose skin tones, features, and hair! This course will demonstrate multiple options of each to start you off with a solid understanding.
Not only is manga itself a style, but there are sub-styles that fall under that main category. We’ll be going over styles such as: chibi, moe, shonen, and standard. Depending on the genre and intentions you may have while drawing, this will influence the style. It’s always beneficial to have these categories of manga in your mental arsenal!
Finally, this course will thoroughly go over character personalization. You’ll learn how to change the eyes, eyebrows, and mouth to create dynamic and interesting expressions, as well as how to illustrate multiple kinds of clothing and accessories.
When you’re finished with this tutorial, you should be able to visualize and manage all of the specs of your character, and begin refining your drawing chops to bring them to life!
