Transcript of Copy of How to Draw Manga/Anime Eyes

How to Draw Manga Why are the eyes important? What are the basic parts of Anime/Manga eyes? The Male Eye Male Female Good Bad The Female Eye Male Female clothes Bodies Take a good look at how the clothes on these characters. Look at the tie on the green-eyed boy. See how it appears to blow in the wind? Take a look at his jacket. It moves too. The Face In manga clothes and hair always seem to be blowing in the wind Really Bad The eyes are one of the most important features of anime style characters; they are the most expressive parts of the face, and are part of what makes each character different and recognizable. Side view Even when the clothes are static, something else will be moving. Manga is about the magic of bringing drawings to life through movement, either frame by frame in a comic or through 'anime' a manga animation, (comics are manga, animated films are 'anime) Just look at the movement in this section of hair. How do we create the illusion of movement in art? Because manga is closely linked to animation, the 'framing' of each image is thought of in terms of 'camera angles' even though there is no camera. Below and right are 'overhead shots' Foreshortening This desire to 'animate' goes right back to ancient eastern culture, to 'animist' religion and Buddhism. Animist religions believe everything has a spirit, even a rock. this explains Japan's fascination with and love of robots. Japanese see them in friendly terms whereas we see them as slightly sinister and make movies about them taking over the earth. Japanese manga and anime artists really relish the magic of bringing their characters to life. Another way manga artists really bring their characters to life so they appear to pop out of the page is by using 'fore-shortening'. Fore shortening is when you show perspective by making the 'foreground' of the body big (often an out-stretched hand) and the background (in this case the body) small Here the manga artist has drawn the grid (blue lines) for the body in strong perspective to get the foreshortening correct Here the artist has added things to foreground and back ground to exaggerate the illusion creating further layers of depth. Buddhism has been practiced in Japan since at least 552. Buddhism has had a major influence on the culture and development of Japan over the centuries, and remains an important part of the culture. About 90 million people in Japan claim to be Buddhist practitioners and/or believers, which accounts for about 70% of the population. In Japan, many Buddhists also profess adherence to Shinto. In modern times, Japan's most popular schools of Buddhism are Amidist (Pure Land), Nichiren Buddhism, Shingon Buddhism and Zen Buddhism. Buddhism has been practiced in Japan since at least 552.

Animism encompasses the beliefs that there is no separation between the spiritual and physical (or material) world, and souls or spirits exist, not only in humans, but also in all other animals, plants, rocks, geographic features such as mountains or rivers, or other entities of the natural environment, including thunder, wind, and shadows. Animism may further attribute souls to abstract concepts such as words, true names, or metaphors in mythology. Examples of animism can be found in forms of Shinto, Serer, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Pantheism, Paganism, and Neopaganism. Manga is influenced by the old myths that predate Buddhism. MYTH AND MANGA Bleach is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tite Kubo. Bleach follows the adventures of Ichigo Kurosaki after he obtains the powers of a Soul Reaper (死神 Shinigami, literally, "Death God") —a death personification similar to the Grim Reaper—from another Soul Reaper, Rukia Kuchiki. His newfound powers force him to take on the duties of defending humans from evil spirits and guiding departed souls to the afterlife. Blue Seed is written and illustrated by Yuzo Takada. The plot is based on the Izumo cycle of Japanese mythology and the tale of the god Susanoo and the eight-headed monster Yamata no Orochi. The main character Momiji, is a descendant of the mythical Princess Kushinada. When Japan is menaced by Aragami (荒神"angry gods") spawned by Yamato-no-Orochi, Momiji is intended to be sacrificed to appease the Aragami. She instead, however, becomes a member of the Terrestrial Administration Center (TAC), a secret agency charged with fighting them. Mahiru Shiraishi can grant others good fortune by touching them. She herself does not benefit from this good fortune,

Mahiru begins to have recurring dreams of a demon, and these dreams soon lead to her becoming entangled with the "Lunar Race" — a collection of creatures of folklore such as vampires, werewolves, kitsune, and tengu. These creatures' powers are related to the phase of the moon, strongest when the moon is full and weakest when it is new.

Each story generally involves a search for immortality, embodied by the blood of the eponymous bird of fire, which, as drawn by Tezuka, resembles the Fenghuang. The blood is believed to grant eternal life, but immortality in Phoenix is either unobtainable or a terrible curse, whereas Buddhist-style reincarnation is presented as the natural path of life Phoenix by Osama Tezuka Originating in China, the Fenghuang is known as the Chinese Phoenix This one is by Hokusai. Hokusai loved to paint the fenghuang - here are some more of his prints Hokusai's mythical creatures Laughing hannay okiku kuniyoshi the ghost of asakura togo Manga fenghuang Manga Ghosts kunisada II Ayakashi are ghosts from shipwrecks Japan's craziest monster karakusa - an umbrella with an eye, a mouth, sometimes arms, and a leg.
