Progress of making

Inspired from 's My drawing Progress , I decided to post my own drawing process as well. I posted how I color... but never how I draw.

The way I draw is more similar to an animator, it's built for speed. I mind less on the error when I draw, but use daily sketching, common sense and study to rule out errors. I find that to be more liberating for my drawing. So when I draw, or sketch out storyline for a manga, I just get the ideas out quickly.

I don't write for my manga. I draw them right away, like how they are in my mind. Words are secondary.

Fun reference!

I love seeing the creative process of others- I learn so much because we all think so differently.

Thank you for sharing!

you read other people's comments? Go you. Study.

I don't mind critiquing your work, if you want it so.
I think I am a natural born teacher, teaching is my part time job now.

my e-mail is right on my front page.... O_o I don't intend to hide it.

...so, you don't even draw the panels to begin with...what an incredible concept...I think that will help me immensely...at least I'm definitely going to have to try it.

yeah, i prefer to just focus on the story and the drawing for the start, and think about design elements on the page later.

It's just something that never even crossed my mind...I'm still kind of blown away by it.

I used to do panels first, and it turns out pretty restricting,
so I later just developed my own way to stay out of the box before I make one. lol~
Thanks for the watch btw. :)

wow..I wish I could sketch like that. I'm still sketching cylinders and cubes for body parts. It doesn't make me very loose though. Any tips on that?

Nice, I was wondering, I have all these pages of my manga in pencil, should I scan it with gray scale and edit it on photoshop??? or do you think photo is better? (I have no experience with photoshop...)

Scaned images would work better than photograph because the lighting is more controled.
