    Tutorial on how to draw your first manga character[?]

    Greeting minna-hun of AO,

    Sheep is not sure whether its allowed to post a tutorial in this forum but -- since it's about art technique, I just hope to share my tutorial to absolute beginners who are eager to learn how to draw and develop their manga characters.

    In this tutorial, you'll learn how to draw an close-up profile, mostly focusing the features of the face. <^w^>/



    And yes, female character. I'll guide on how to draw men .. some other time. (Laughs)

    The tutorial is posted in my blog --> Click here

    Don't worry, it's not one of those porn sites where they scam you etc.

    Sheep is a decent person. <^v^>/

    And I have no motive to cheat you. (Laughs)

    Anyway... If this tutorial helps you, I'll continue to create more tutorials and will post them here.

    For now.. Thank you everyone! \<_ _>/

    Its a nice tutorial, but you might want to concider working on your facial features, even for an anime character, the face looks a little... off.

    And next tutorial you post, please post it in its entirety on AO. K?

    Kinda harsh don't you think? After all, its just a quick 2 minute drawing to get someone started. I thought it was great, simple and not too over the top.

    I believe…whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you…stranger.

    "Why so serious?"

    (Laughs) I'm going to kick myself in the stomach now. Thanks a lot, buddy. <;__;>

    @Jokerman

    I'm horrible and I guess I'm in no position to help even a newbie draw. <;__;>
    Thanks anyway for the positive comment. <^-^>lll

    Baa..

    When I give critizism, I make it consrtuctive. I said it was a good tutorial, but I mentioned where improvements could be made.

    The face itself is fine, its the chin and left side of the face (it looks like the left side is more caved in then the right).

    It wasn't ment with malice.

    *Sniff sniff*

    Thank you. I understand.

    So it's the chin? And the lips look kind of too small, right?

    If so... Yosh! I'll improve that! \<^v^>/

    *Smacks self in the boobs*

    Owie.. <x__x>lll

    Re: Tutorial on how to draw your first manga character[?]

    Small lips? No, i don't think so, her lips are actually as big (even bigger) than the lips of a lot of (mostly female) anime characters. I really think that you've given her great lips.

    For the critique, you can hate me if you want to while you're reading the next couple of comments....

    I agree, her chin draws attention by being off and by having a really odd shape. I suggest realigning the chin to make it more anatomically aligned with the positioning of her neck and her facial features. Also, slightly curving the outline of her cheeks could make it look softer and less right angle-ish.

    Another thing that caught my eye is her dress, the design ain't bad, it has details-folds and all but....it seems to be off in perspective with her shoulders and cleavage. You did an okay job in drawing and shaping her boobs, all seemed well until you drew her dress which made her look flat chested (on the dress area, not above it). You could see what i mean by looking at her left side just between the left boob and the left shoulder. It could easily be fixed just by applying darker shades in that very area, putting darker lines to emphasize the depth of the folds, and realigning the uppermost lining of her dress. Her shoulders can be off-putting to some but since i don't really know the intended position of her arms then i don't see any reason to ramble on further about it. The dress thing was just an add-on and merely for that drawing above not for the review...

    "You’re learning to focus more on the beauty of the face right now so beneath the shoulder does not matter to you until you master the face."

    It was a fairly nice tutorial to begin with, nice explanations and all. I agree with you on this one---"I admit, I’m not the best artist but I know I can help absolute beginners."

    But then again, it's your style you can make it as off as you want. It's kinda like having the "grammatical immunity" of singers and poets alike.
