A Manga~Realism Sketchbook
Yeah! ~ My first thread on CA!
Hi my name is Ally,
I'm new to CA, and so far I'm kinda confused on how things work, so sorry in advance if I cause trouble. XD
I also have a active account on DA, though I really need some solid critiques, so I came here!
Okay back to me...
I just turned thirteen, (but I act like twenty year old, so don't mind me~) and really got into drawing "seriously" around 6th grade when i found anime and loved it XD (lol)
I love japanese anime/manga art, but also I'm gonna try and do some realism first, someday I want to self publish a manga.
And this is where I'll post all my drawings and stuff along the way!
~Thanks for reading!

Okay I'm gonna start way back, I did this like in the beginning of the school year when I was obsessed with Naruto, and had no anatomy practice whatsoever, so it was pretty much one of the first times I had ever drawn a dude without his shirt lol.
Also since i did it in class I didn't have any references with me, so the portions are way off. DX

I did this stuff without references, (I should really start using them ne?)

Nice worl Ally.
1) yes, do start using ref. especially when working with the human figure.
2) Dont be sad when people dont comment, sometime people dont have the time or you thread gets pushed down fast when people are active so its seen less. Keep it up, you are doing it for you (I hope) and not for the comments
Keep drawing and posting and drawing and posting. By the time you reach page 30 in your thread, you'll be really good (30 is just a random number but if you can fill it then you have drawn a lot). Good Luck!

oh dear oh dear oh deaaaaaaaar.
I drew like this until last year, when I got my ass on /ic/ 4chan and they tore me a new hole.
Luckily for you, with all the resources here on CA you'll probably be able to get your ass in gear and maybe even bypass me in skill by the time you're my age.
That is if you're willing to accept Anatomy and perspective and all techinal things...
Once you learn just an EENSY WEENSY bit about them- you look at your old shit and go HOLY CRAP WHAT WAS I THINKING.
But I'm rambling. Are you serious about wanting to take your art to the next level or do you want to dabble in animu forever?

Thanks for the replies! I will be working on anatomy and stuff from now on, any good sites or studies that you recommend? (well besides posemaniacs...)
A while ago I was trying realistic, the eye was done from lots of references, and I entered it in a scholastics competition that my brother won last year, but sadly no seventh graders were accepted.
The elf/baby/thing..... i don't like it at all anymore, (especially the nose..) I did it in Gimp when I first got my tablet.
It's my birthday today too finally a teenager lol (13)

I really like your realism pieces. Once you are good with realistic drawings without the help of references, then it will be easier to draw cartoons. First, use reference.
For reference, you can use google or gettyimages. I like to watch people in the busy streets, watching the movement of bodies really help me grasp the anatomy more. I also use myself for reference.
Congratulations on your birthday. What sort of anime do you want to create?

Ooh, very nice. I like your style, very outgoing. :3
Keep up the nice work!
< Doesn't matter how good you are, as long as you put effort into it.

Last night i searched through Getty images, and it was really cool XD So I dew some poses from there, and then when I was reading One Piece I decided to draw some of there poses, i kinda overlapped it all, so you sorry if you can't see the poses from Getty
Also do you think that that is good practise? Like drawing poses and characters strait from manga?
