Hi These are really good. By the way I just wanted to asked . how did you go about studying the skeletal structure? Like did you draw them exactly like in those anatomy books ? Plzz reply stuck n confuse from where to start.
I didn't actually start with the skeleton, but knowing how the human body is structured helps a lot. If that's how you learn, then I would recommend studying the skeleton, then working your way up to the muscles, then to the skin layer.
I actually spent a few years studying the body as a shape and noticing and remembering where muscles go and where fat would build up. It was mostly observation for me rather than a science. I suggest that if you are like me and draw based on what shapes you see, then look at picture refrences of men (or women) to figure out where everything goes. Practice often. I personally don't trust scientific anatomy books because they don't portray many different body sizes, types, ect. Real life is really what you should be looking at.
Thank you , that was a quick reply I'm really grateful for taking the time and giving me advice , sorry for this but I have to asked, is it ok to that with trying to become a mankaga, cuz thats what I'm aimningg for
thanks for the inspiration and I hope to be, but umm sorry about this (AGAIN) but can I learn anatomy for drawing mangas with the technique you advice, I'm bothering you aren't I ,sorry its just I don't know where to start
Hmm... well, I find that manga styles have different anatomy than real life such as longer limbs, bigger heads, slender bodies, ect. I think it's a good idea for you to look at reality and start learning that and then develop your own manga style after you know all the basics. Altering anatomy is much easier when you know how people actually look. But many beginning artist begin with fan art or copying their favorite artist's style and later developing their own. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this but I'm not going to lie, I am a huge fan of Tetsuya Nomura's work and when I was about 10-12 I used to try to imitate his style. I'm not sure my style looks anything like his anymore but I know that it's influenced it a lot. For manga, I recommend studying multiple artists for inspiration and learn how they draw bodies. Afterward, you can go ahead study humans and figure out your style from a combination of these studies. Art is a lot of work!
And I don't mind at all! You aren't bothering me c: I appreciate you asking for advice, there's nothing wrong with that.
Thank you again, by the way Tetsuya Nomura is an awesome artist , he created the Final Fantasy saga, man I wish I could play those games the graphics of the characters are incredible unfortunately they aren't available here in India.
Well, yes. Pretty much just know where the basic anatomical parts of a male are; I don't use shapes or anything, but it might be a good idea to use them. And know that every man has different muscles and though the variety doesn't seem obvious, they are all different! There's obviously some more specific guidelines I follow... I might make a tutorial on those one day. Thank you for your comment! ^^
it will help express what i really want to as my limited abilities is disabling me in creating what i see in my minds eye and it really sucks but i will practice and when im ready i hope you and others will like it, heres hoping/cc have a good day
