Now let’s get started. Today we will talk about sketching a manga page.

Sketch
A rough representation of a drawing, or a whole manga page, it is guided by the name and followed by the inking (this will be also treated in a next tutorial). It is in fact the most exciting part while drawing manga, and can take few minutes to hours to do the sketching.


Materials
1) Pencil
2) Eraser


Important point:

a) Start the sketch by paying attention to your manga characters, it is crucial as you will try to paint life and emotion through them.


b) Start putting details of your background or draw it completely.


c) As you can see a manga sketch also requires knowledge about human anatomy, facial expression, background like building and nature. (Please refer to our tutorial about how to draw trees as an important background element)

Here are some some rough manga sketches of my previous works.

Treasures of Sendai
Caribbean Monsters
Flowers Power

Good luck for your next project!
