What if I can't draw such a circle (to make it nice and not crooked)?

I disagree, mouth should have higher position. between 1/3 and 1/4 in terms of distance between nose and chin.

Here's the examples

I really miss the times of high mouth position in anime styles...

I think this is where I first started to draw manga years ago. Now I don't draw manga as much, but hey, this helped me :p

Why don't you learn to draw study-art and everything then choose what type of style do you prefeer the most by altering reality.  Just starting from manga/anime/whatever will really limit you as an artist.

As much as I appriciate tutorials and you trying to help people. I think anime is not at all good if you don't have previous drawing expirience.

I get where you're coming from, but the author of this didn't say anything about starting art with a manga style. This is just a tutorial for manga heads for people who want to get into manga art style, regardless if they have previous experience with other style or not. :meow:



PS: You're from Balkan too :meow: :D

People will just rush into manga style especialy since this is deviantart and 90% of artists here are starting out, therefore are bad. This can kind of scar their art in the future with they start with this which will probably ruin their art career (reversably).

Not that I really care, the entire site can go to hell for all I care but I thought it would be nice if I put it out there.

I get it, I get it. Just saying it's not the author's fault. Most he can do is put a warning or something.

You can still draw manga and anime as long as you practice fundamentals from reality etc.
That's how I've done it so far, if it weren't for manga and anime I would've never started art. :D

You're pretty ok with your art but sadly no more than that. I am sure you'll only be getting better tho. :D

Jela331, for what it's worth, I think you're doing really well! How long have you been drawing? I also think you handled this bully's words well. It's pretty clear to me they were trying to start trouble and drag you into an argument but you handled it with class and poise. :D I do like your art!
