It is possible to make a world-class manga without knowing how to draw one inch. You only need to collaborate with a talented artist. If you don't have a decent artist on hand, I recommend starting with light books. They're easy to find and they will help you improve your drawing skills.
Making a true manga takes a lot of work, devotion, and creative talent, but don't let that deter you from attempting. You've got to start someplace. This lesson will show you how to plan out your manga before you start drawing it, as well as how to draw it after you do.
The first thing you need to know is that making a quality manga requires more than just being able to draw well. It also requires that you have a good idea about what kind of story you want to tell, who the main characters are, and what kind of action scenes there should be in your manga. All these factors affect each other, so if you aren't sure yet, just keep reading. After all, it's not too late to change directions!
Now that you understand that making a quality manga involves more than just drawings, let's take a look at how difficult it is. The short answer is that it depends on the artist. Some people can draw for hours and still not come up with anything interesting, while others can write one chapter and be done. There are also artists who can draw and write at the same time, but most people don't have the patience for that.
In general, writing and drawing manga is a long process that doesn't end once you finish your first chapter. Instead, it's better to think of it as a series of milestones that you have to reach in order to finish your project.
Making a manga takes time, but if you've made it this far, you've already demonstrated some perseverance, since this is a rather long piece. When taking on a huge job, it is critical to prepare ahead of time and not hurry through it, as you may burn yourself out. Set a daily or weekly goal for yourself and keep to it.
Manga are created by drawing pictures and writing text next to them. Once you learn how to draw human figures, you can start making your own. In fact, many artists who work on popular anime characters begin by drawing themselves using basic anatomy and perspective. Then they hire other people to paint the images that they create.
Anime studios usually hire freelance artists to help with the workload. They often look for people who live in the vicinity of the studio because this makes it easier to meet up and work together. You may be asked to submit your own drawings or samples of your work so that the staff can get an idea of what kind of art they like. This is also a good opportunity to get feedback on your work from others.
Once you have been hired, you will usually be assigned a certain number of pages per month to complete. This allows the studio time to release new episodes of their show simultaneously with publication of the manga. It's important to remember that both the manga and the anime are copyrighted materials so if you want to include references or quotes from other sources, you need to obtain permission first.
