Tips and Tricks: Action Scene Basics
How to Draw Manga! Tips and Tricks: Action Scene Basics Introduction
Action scenes are a key part of any manga, whether they be a placid shoujo to a shounen mecha showdown. Action scenes are a dynamic action driven panel showing a fight or action against an inanimate object, or a passionate realisation. All of these follow a similar formula to create the action sequence.
Setting the Scene
When creating an action scene first consider the what action is being performed and how the two objects/subjects are interacting, i.e. show the force of the movement. For a person, it they are being hit, they will reaction in accordance to the force applied.A common way of achieving this is using the < shape to indicate where they are being hit. Take into consideration anatomy; if a person is being hit in the stomach they will produce a nice < shape with their head and shoulders coming forwards, whilst the hip becomes the poi

How to Draw Manga! Tips and Tricks Pen Techniques Introduction
A key part of traditional manga is the art of using pens and ink. There are so many variations and many things to try that can make a manga panel pop without even needing screentones. Whether the artist prefers technical pens or a nib and ink there are many variations and techniques to try. This article aims to cover some of the basics to start with.
Some Basic Pen Types
There are two main types of pens, muti-liners/technical pens and nibs in a holder. Multi-liners come in graduated sizes depending on your needs, from a super fine 0.03mm up to 1.0mm, then Brush types as well. Nibs come in all shapes and sizes as well, the most common being the G-Pen and Saji (or Spoon), but there are other types such as school, calligraphy range, Maru.

PATREON PAGE: www.patreon.com/DYW14
I want to make this patreon announcement and also an update of what’s going to happen to my channel for this busy month. Link in the description for details.
Reason for Patreon – I want to bring back my old first webcomic from a long 4 year hiatus in a big way since someone on old webcomic host site, Petite Symphony suggested it during it. Getting the best equipment *1tb ubs hard drive * for both my web comics, making more short videos, animatics, and speedpaints on my growing youtube channel.
Year of the Cow Webcomic – This was my very first webcomic that I ever made since 2009 during my senior year of high school. I’ll explain how that came to be in a future video. There are two versions of my webcomic that is available to check it out and see, my Smackjeeves version (on my deviantart page) and the Petite Symphony version in my Dropbox. Links for both down below.
Upcoming Youtube Video Content – Ever since I made the Splatoon Spongebob Splatfest video with positive feedback, I was able to make more short videos with content with a few speedpaint videos and animatics. There’s going to be an upcoming video for November 18th at midnight while you guys are in line buying Pokemon Sun and Moon. It’ll be a short animatic video btw. There's going to be a character design tutorial video series that I want to make since the PPG reboot came out and everyone's so tired of it that I want to make something else instead.
•Anime OP/END Parody Animatics – Unlike the normal animatic videos that I make, these are going to be parodies of fanvids mixing and matching one show with another’s theme song depending how long it’s going to take.
For example, Pokemon with Digimon: www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1TPqd…
It’s going to be like the Mystery Skulls Animatic www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TqfBE…
I’ve only come up with only 5 so far so look forward for that.
•Animatics – Forgot to mention Game Grumps Animatics, there's going to be more of these in the future when the moment is right. Might even do other podcast moments with my drawings in the future.
•Topic/Top 10 videos - There's going to be topic videos and top 10 videos specifically about animation and possibly anime. First impressions of old and new anime or cartoons to watch, including shorts and pilots.
•Visual Break Down Analysis Videos – Inspired from Digibro’s Kill La Kill visual breakdown www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZYUEw…
and Mother’s Basement. These are going to be hard post due to copyright since it’s going to be an analysis on certain scenes from Steven Universe, Gumball, or other shows I’ve watched, but just in case if that’s going to happen. I’ll possibly upload it on Vimeo or Dailymotion with a thumbnail and link to it.
•Character Design Videos – Since I saw CR’s PPG Reboot episode on Sapna www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8bDhv…
and Extra Credits’ Pose Design 101 about Tracer’s Butt controversy, www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmLkVt…
, I want to make something that’s not your basic character design tutorial video, but it’s going to be involving a few breakdowns on characters from Steven Universe and their character design philosophy from Ian Jones Quartey, fusion character designs, and creating Gems or Inklings from Splatoon.
Streaming – There’s a good chance I will have a stream on Picarto on a Saturday every week for me drawing YotC concept, making animatics and fan edits. I might change the schedule if there’s a better time to do it.
Social Media - I mostly use twitter to chat with other artists and webcomic creators of how they're progressing and posting drawings and stuff. Tumblr is my main blog for reblogging helpful tutorials that I need and other things as references and inspirations, and posting and improving my work there.I have my own instagram to post my process of my art, short fan edits, and WIPs. Deviantart, I'll have to post more of my work a lot since there's so many groups to join and post it on.
