Hi,
You are off to a good start, but I agree with the others that this drawing is pretty typical of early drawings by young anime fans. On a happier note, you have already started learning to draw and that puts you several steps ahead of all the people that join DA and ask "how should I begin" and then they disappear. So you are on the path. You just need to keep moving forward.

Looks to me like beginner stuff. You have no grasp on a real style yet, and I recommend that you start drawing real humans before you try to develop a new "style." Manga artists actually study anatomy, believe it or not. It helps with drawing, and it'll do you and a lot of people good!

Good luck.

Yeah I got that much. Manga artists don't start drawing "manga" style instantly. They study real anatomy and human figures. So if you want to be a manga artist, you're going to have to practice drawing how every real artist starts. If you need some reference sites I can provide them.

I have used how to draw manga books for years, I guess I need more practice, and I have looked at other art on here to get inspired.

Unless you are publishing this in japan, it isn't 'manga'.

Style wise, yes, anime or manga style.

Not original. Very typical actually, particularly of beginners. (Sorry)

Technically it's not manga if it's not sequential.

I don't see anything really different from that and what other kids draw.

I would suggest learning some anatomy then as the primary theme of animation is more or less human movement.

manga = comics, it's not a style it's just the japanese word for comics. Of course Japanese comics have a style we're all familiar with.

So really by definition of your work not being a comic it is not "manga" ie not a comic, but it is tbh still manga style.

Worry less about style more about drawing anything that takes your fancy. In the end putting it in a little box and saying "I draw manga" or "I draw stickmen" or "I do cartoons" is less relevant than simply having nice work.

So do I just call it Jap style?
Anyway, I want to draw in this style, I asked because I wanted to know if you liked my style.

It's not much different from regular manga styling, and it's just a pencil sketch, so in so far as I can say, sure I like it, but as I said, it's not about me. Do you enjoy drawing like that? Does it make you happy? Do you think it looks good?

That would be dumb. As Pyrochan said manga is just the Japanese word for comics and it isn't like Japanese people all draw the same, there isn't an national across the board style.


And are there seriously people who don't know Jap is a racial slur?

Oh, I am sorry, I did not know it was a slur.
And anyway, there are people that called it manga style, I had books that said how to draw manga, what is the proper name?

Those books are horrible and hardly ever are written by anyone who has ever published.


A proper name for what? Every single artist in Japan?

It's not an art style. You misunderstand what an art style is. You simple don't draw in an art style. Style is a development.

I'm sorry, but it still looks like manga. The faces are still angular, the hair is still spiky, and the noses are still very small.
If you want to get a new and unique style, try different styles and draw different things. Like sometimes, I find a photo and sketch it as accurate as I can.

It's not that you're bad; you have potential. It's just that it's still manga. :stare: But it doesn't matter in the long run. As long as the style is good, and as long as you like it, then it's A-OK! :D
