What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Before we start, I think it's important to keep in mind that drawing manga pages is a very demanding task that requires a lot of time but also, a lot of knowledge in many aspects of illustration such as general drawing, perspectives, anatomy... but it also requires writing skills, for you will need to come up with an interesting plot, dialogue, narrative and more things that will guarantee that your storytelling will go hand in hand with the art in each page. This might seem complicated, but don't fret It is a very fun and rewarding experience that no one should miss! Give it your best shot!

Write down your ideas! Polish the plot, analyze the time-space continuum, make sure the idea is exciting and doesn't have plot-holes.

Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles TutorialFirst you need a new line art layer and to use the vector tools provided. Use the curve tool and edit tool to create your speech bubble shapes.Paint Tool Sai Speech Bubbles Tutorial8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Below in red is where to find the line art layer. Click it to create a new line art or Vector Layer.
On the new line art layer, click four points in a rought squared egg shape like below in the large red square. Use the curve tool to make this shape. The curve tool is marked in a little red box to the left of the image below.
Now select the edit tool. Then from the middle of each point, click and hold then drag outwards to create a new point and deform your shape into a rough circle. You may need to change between your edit options to edit the shape. Translate should be fine to do most of the shaping.
Then you can use the curve tool to ad the speech bubble tail. That's all there is to making speech bubbles in sai. Of course you can draw

'Life Drawing 5' by ~algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

Seriously I want you all to give this a try. You'll learn something awesome and end up with a kick-ass finished drawing.
What you need:
Charcoal pencil (2B or 4B)X-acto knife (for the kiddies, be very CAREFUL when using this to sharpen your charcoal pencil)Willow/Vine charcoal (alternatively you can use this instead of the charcoal pencil and X-acto knife combo but you won't get the precision you need for the finer details)Sand paperKneed eraserPrecision eraser (something like the Mono Zero Eraser on this site - alternatively you can cut a regular eraser and make it pointy)Printer and paper (go to the Sonic Channel site and download ANY of the official Sonic artwork that is prepared specifically for rendering)Tissue paperYour index finger or thumbEnthusiasm!

I make no disclaimer whatsoever that this is the end-all, be-all of a character template. This is what works for me, and Im well aware that my writing process is mine and mine alone. But Ill post the template and my reasoning on it in the hopes that folks can discern something helpful from it. One of the worst things to do to yourself is tell yourself theres a right way and trap yourself in that box. Dont ever resist what feel unnatural in the writing process. Just learn to direct its course, like a river. Also, please keep in mind that I do a lot of prewriting, and this template gets filled out for every major character in the story. My major
