I don't watch anime but recently I got these copic pens (proper japanese pens) and I was also givin this book to read so I decided instead of doing crazy punky people I did it in a manga style. I looked at the book for the eyes and that was about it so I am pretty proud of this :) Please tell me what you think and ways I can improove my manga drawings. The clothes are in my type of style :) I hope this is not too big since it's small as I could get it without it looking too blurred and nasty. :) JPG scan. I will try and upload my futurama and more simpsons pictures in the mean time ;)

EDIT: excuse the thanks!! :o it was a thanks to the guy who gave me the pens in the end but it's still my first manga drawing ever. I also used the brush pen as an outline then amazingly coloured it in.(I hardly ever colour in my pictures 'cos I'm too lazy :))

It looks damn fine for a first try at manga-style.

Good job there!

I'm not much into manga and anime, but this is done very well! I also like the coloring, it's not too much, but just enough to enhance the drawing. Great work!

It is very good. The only thing I might want to point out is that her head seems to be disjointed from her body. Instead of putting the front of her neck to the back of her jaw it would probably work better coming up somewhere near her chin.

thanks ;D yeah the head does look a bit off the chin a bit but it's mainly because I'm not too sure how to draw the style and shape of anime heads. I am pleased with it any how :D
