Recreate a manga classic | Creative Bloq

I’ve been a huge manga fan since childhood and it’s impossible to hide the influence that passion has on my art. In my quest to paint powerful and dynamic images, I’ve learned a lot about how to draw manga from my favourite artists, through observation, and trial and error. 

Yet as illustrators we can also make use of a range of visual techniques – composition, colour, lighting, perspective – to help us achieve such goals. People rarely spend more than a few seconds looking at something before moving on. So in the case of art that also serves a commercial purpose – such as a magazine cover – it’s even more important to ensure those techniques are all working to create an eye-catching composition. It may feel overwhelming at times, but the trick is divide up the workflow, focus on one step at a time and solve any problems as they arise.
