Anywho, like I said manga has always been a great inspiration for me but at one point I realised I was limiting myself and that I needed to focus on traditional life and figure drawing, although I've had experience in this field and my skills were still growing I did felt stuck at one point.
So I would like to advise people to not just draw manga only, but learn traditional life and figure drawing first, you have to understand the basics in order to grow in your work and be succesfull.

Some of my manga stuff:

Hey... This is MAD old, but I'll post for the sake of the forum I guess... Haha!

I think that the thing that I did "wrong" a few years back was just jumping in and copying manga without any solid understanding of anatomy etc, which is why I think my style suffered for a long time.

Now I've gotten back to focusing on the basics since manga is just a stylized representation of reality. Without understanding realism/ anatomy, one could only hope to mimic and just copy stuff that they see in manga... Well that's my take on it... But I love the style and will return to it once I get the basics down.

Hi everyone - I am quite a fan of Manga and it has shaped my own style so far - tho what I draw is not 100% Manga as I also looked at a lot of American and English Comics while I was growing up - but from 13 to 16yrs old I cared for Manga most - so I believe that I am some of everything.... plus I am still learning so please critique and I will try to do the same, thankyou

Hi guys,

I'm going to move this thread to the Tutorials and Workshops SubForum here on the Anatomy Forum. I've left a redirect on the main Anatomy Forum so everyone can find it.

Haha! Thx killermachine.

I guess I didn't mean copy, like directly mimic someone's style, but moreso trying to mimic a style without really understanding the underpinnings of it.

Hadn't realized it sounded that way til you put it that way. Oro~~~>

Thx again, I think this thread/ whatever it becomes will be really great!
