How Come I Suck At Drawing Manga?

How Come I Suck At Drawing Manga?

I try and try and I SWEAR I never get better! I've just started watching some tutorial videos - don't know if they help. Could anyone give some tips or recommend some videos? (Btw it is SO hard to draw one eye and then the other exactly the same... I might need help with that, too.)

For making the eyes identical, you can purchase a Mira.

Actually, they're not. In fact, most schools are required to have one. You could just ask.

You typically use it in math, but it can be used for anything. It reflects one image onto the other side of the page. All you have to do is trace.

i just practise the shape of the head over and over and then all the different toe of eyes over and over and then finally i start to draw:
first shape of head
then hair
then eyes
then nose
then body
NOTE: save mouth for last! you always should give them expression last! See More▼

If you want the eyes the same height then lightly use a router to mark the top and bottom of the eye

when I learn to draw a certain character and they are annoyingly hard to draw, I trace them and see what I can learn from the trace. I don't know if this will help because everyone is different when it comes to these things. For the eyes I recommend drawing them both at the same time and laying them out before adding detail.

Thanks!

It takes months (possibly years!) to learn how to draw manga. When I started drawing, I sucked. But I practiced, and I got better
