Question by Amber: How to easily start drawing anime?
I have asked this question before but it didn’t work I draw average cartoons I want to know if there is any way at all to progress from cartoons to realism and again to anime or just straight to anime quickly or slowly it doesn’t matter I just want to learn do I have to learn to draw realistically before I can draw anime really good?

Best answer:

Answer by thundybear
Unfortunately, yes. To be able to draw manga and anime style, you first have to know realism, which is what anime style is based off of.

The best way to do this is to look at photos and try drawing them as you see them.

Learning realism first will make anime a breeze!

Not so confidential… Dr McNinja’s new patient admitting forms! Not real but made up by moi (with some maladies drawn from the webcomic and the twisted minds of friends) and filled in by the nice people we met at Fan Expo who wanted a ninja doctor. Clearly there is a demand for this sort of thing, so ninjas, go to med school.
Please, View large on black for your hilarious viewing pleasure. And do let me know if you’re exhibiting any of these symptoms. (Not because I’m medically trained… just because.)

Question by marshmeryll: What tools do you need when drawing manga?
What do anime artists use when drawing their manga (whether digitally or by using pen and paper).
What are those inking tools do they use? And what are the best brands you could recommend?

And also, do they still use pen and paper or did they start drawing manga using the computer?
****manga artist is what i meant

Best answer:

Answer by TheAphtermath
Most Mangaka have started using computers. professionals recommend Manga Studio EX, but for beginners Manga Studio Debut should be fine. It’s basically like photoshop only specifically for creating Manga. You can have multiple layers, for example a layer of what you’ve sketched, a layer of skin tone, shadows, darker shadows, hair, highlights on the hair. It’s very detailed. Also it allows you to break up the page anyway you want. There’s a huge number of toning tools on the program you can use, cross hatching effects, shadows, also common backgrounds and designs. Instead of Manga Studio some use TOKYOPOP’s Manga Creator, but if you read reviews Manga Studio crashes less.

With the program it’s easiest to get a pen tablet, that allows you to draw with a “pen” onto a digital board and directly into the program. Wacom and Genius are two brand names. This tool allows you to hand draw your artwork and also have it immediately on the computer.

Some Mangaka still do use the original drawing and toning techniques, but they are time consuming and expensive, so it’s mostly been phased out.

Can anyone specify the exact materials needed to draw anime?

Best answer:

Answer by johnny suede
Pen and paper. For paper, moleskin is nice. But for coloring, usually, it’s colored digitally so you can use Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.

Question by jasperville: How to draw Manga style characters?
I would like to find websites and/or videos that have step-by-step instructions on drawing manga style characters, specifically facial features and hair.

I’ve found some books at the library, but I am a visual learner, it is better if I can see the process, rather than just reading about it.

I am also a member of DeviantArt, I know they have tutorials on there and some have been very helpful, but I would like to know what else is out there.

Thanks!

Question by cooliegirl1994: whats the best website to learn how to draw anime?
i started drawing anime about 8 months ago. i was brilliant at it.[not trying to sound cocky]. but i havent been able to draw good picture in almost 3 months. i love drawing it and i miss my beautiful pictures.help please.

Answer by bop_the_pop
Good job, drawing anime n manga is fun; im into it too. Anyways, ive discovered that ONLINE isnt the best place to look for “anime step by step drawing”. Personal profiles can be helpful because they usually have step by step instructions. Your public library is very helpful, go there and look in the “kids, drawing n art” section if you have no luck with that, ask the person at the front desk, they’ll be sure to help.

I hope you get drawing again.
Hope this helped.
