It is an amazing skill when you master manga properly. To improve your skills, you need to practice regularly. Drawing manga is very simple and easy, you can also get a visual art diary when you can draw every day.

Here are tips that will guide you in drawing manga.

1. Start with the basic frame, lines indicating the bones of your person, and dots representing the joints.

2. Draw an egg/ oblong shape for the head.

3. Add some flesh, this helps to make sure that it is realistic.

4. Smooth out your lines and put waist, this is done by adding lines for the neck and some triangle shapes for the feet.

5. Put clothing and decoration, by just basically designing any clothes and makes them look real.

I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

A lot of people would like to draw Manga characters, but they do not know where to begin.

Having an innate talent for the drawing will definitely help, but these are some more things that you can do:

• The first thing that you have to do is to make light sketches first.

• You may use some guides that you can find online.

• Plan out the drawings that you want and what you would like to draw.

• You may want to keep your drawings in different stages of completion.

• Start putting in the details that you want.

• When you are already happy with the way that your drawing looks like, that is the time when you can make everything more permanent.

Remember that doing some drawing exercises will also help you withdrawing more.

• Commence your drawing with basic lines and frames, which would show the bones of the character and dots would be used to represent the joints. Make the pose of your character as realistic as you can be.

• Draw an oval or oblong shape for the head of the character

• Draw circles and oblongs around the lines you have drawn to make sure it is realistic. If you are male, it is better to start up withdrawing male manga characters and vice versa. This would serve the purpose of adding flesh to your drawing.

• Smoothen your lines and insert the waist. Note that the waist of women appears to be slimmer while that of men is not really defined. Add some triangle shape for the feet and erase the original frame and structure lines leaving you with just your border alone

• Add clothing material and accessories to your manga character.
