    5. there’s something wrong with this, look at the space of the different sides of the eyes, it’s different and the guidelines in how to draw the face is different she has her own way. draw a circle for the the head and draw the cheeks and chin and draw vertical line in the middle of it and draw horizontal lines in it for the eyes and nose.

    10. This is how to draw a manga CHARACTER -.- To draw manga you must learn: How to draw the human body (female/male) with face,hands,feet,toes everything, poses and MANY DIFFERENT ways to draw them. Not only that you must learn how to draw backgrounds, you must be able to draw things such as trees,cars, buildings,houses, stuff like 2 point perspective,etc. I am not saying anything bad about the video btw… I am just saying this to whoever wants to do a real manga. (I know, this is a tutorial)

    11. Sophie-Chan. I am forever in your debt. Thank you so much for teaching me how to draw the hardest concept of drawing I could not cross. You have inspired and helped a young artist like me, so I believe your goal is completed. But it is only completed for me, while you are still inspiring and helping other young artists out there. Thank you so much Sophie, I apreciate it…a lot.

    12. This is very beautiful and amazing. I am training to be a pro for you. I took a hiatus of a year from drawing anime and manga because i got mad that i couldn’t get it right,….and now i’m back to the drawing bored. ^^ Your video helps me get the idea of drawing so pro,….i learned by looking at videos and redrawing my way, not the person’s way. I always, or most of the time got it right, but i learned. Right now, i am going to get pencil, paper, and try this out! You’re amazing c:

    16. When drawing anime, i usually focus on the eye A LOT then when you finally realize something is poor in your ability to draw anime, such as for me, the legs. But anyways! The hair was amazing and now on to the next video.

    19. I’m self teaching myself to draw manga/anime style. Then my non-anime friends accidently trampled on my confidense by calling a girl i had just drawn, without thinking, a guy. I could tell from the beginning that yours was feminine. Any tips, anyone? Or am I doomed to draw traps forever? Btw, awesome vid. 🙂

    21. That made no sense and I wasn’t talking to you so please don’t get agressive over something that wasn’t said to you. However minding your own business would save you less trouble. Just an adivce you need to know because clearly you’re nose is in my comment. I didn’t say comment if you want to say something negative and be all in my business. You’re negativity is so uncalled for. Hopefully this paragraph will make you think about what you’ve done. (I feel like I’m a teacher talking to a 5y/o)

    26. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, but don’t seem to be getting any better, I read and watch as many tutorials as I can but no matter how hard I try, no matter what new knowledge I take in I still end up with the same crappy end-results every time. It seems the only time I can get a someone decent result, is when I have a reference to look at, and even than I can’t do any modifications to that to make it my own without screwing it up again.

    27. we seem to be in the same boat , i switched to digital art because its alot easier to fix mistakes and get more drawing repetitions in without having to buy paper. You should try it, buy a tablet and download paint tool sai

    29. I know what you mean. All mine are alright, but I do what I can to make them better. It never helps, only messes it up. Everyone I’m around is great at art, and it irritates me that I can’t draw a simple face! I asked my sister to help me with art, but all she has to say is,”How am I supposed to help you? You have to do it by yourself.” Isn’t that helpful?

    30. Tell me about it, everyone I talk to says the same thing “You have to do it yourself” “I can’t help you” “It’s something that only comes with practice” I’ve been practicing for years, and yet I haven’t seemed to see any improvement. One of my friends told me “Don’t ever tell yourself that you’re bad at drawing, if you do that you’ll start believing it, after that happens you’ll never improve” I think that’s probably the best advice anyone given me on the subject

My favorite character is actually tails but i do like Dark sonic and Shadow + Amy so yeah if i had to choose who i would be i would choose Tails because he’s just a simple character and still has many rolls to play.

    33. First off, if you state something in public, don’t get angry if someone joins in the conversation. Secondly it was quite clear she wasn’t being “aggressive” or even disagreeing with you’re statement… She was adding on too it.So really, you started the fight with her, not the other way around…

    34. Anyways you’re quite the hypocrite, you might not have been talking too Sweetheartsization but Vitexdoidex wasn’t talking to you either… Anyways, the original comment was clearly in reference to the song in the background…The fact that you didn’t realize this, or that “sweetheart” was agreeing with you; shows your level of intelligence…

    35. Even if the comments are still going on you haven’t realized that it’s an argument , not a fight , Mind your business ,I understand she was agreeing but she’s adding more of a problem , that shows how much you have logic and intelligence ,

You wern’t “minding your own buisness” when you responded to the original comment… “Will you ever stfu” Lady, all the comments were made at once, it hasn’t been a continuous stream; they were done for a while now…

    42. Everyone, the key to drawing is taking your time. If you rush through it your drawing(s) won’t turn out as you expected. So take your time and it will take a lot of practice. A tip is get some Anime pictures off Google Images, and try to copy them without tracing them. Take your time and you will be one of the best Anime artists!

    47. Sophie, i have a question. When you first started drawing, were you bad? Like when you were born did you have this god given talent or did you have to practice and learn things to get this good? Cus right now i love drawing. i love anime and if i was as good as you i could draw like 5 anime characters in 20 minutes. But it takes me a really long time and compared to you, wow they suck.. So, did you have to work hard or was it like a natural talent of your and you built it up?

    48. My weakest points in manga is drawing the shape of the face or the hair, but thanks to you, i’m improving very well! The videos you make help me a lot, and i’ve been setting goals such as shading and reflecting more better, or drawing Cloud Strife and Sora’s hair.

    49. It’s incredeble beutyfull prosess to see play’d fast, the drawing of the hair ^^Just one tip about drawing…. i hope i dont offend you.But it is a good idea of making many layers off shading..starding with pale one and working up to dark shadeings. that kinda pulls the charackter upp of the paper, 3D vise.. But hey ! i loved youre tutoryal, thank you ! =)

    52. Don’t worry there are many black people that do anime, its fine for anyone to do it actually. To like something that no one else around you likes is totally fine. (Some people like football others like soccer).Samurai Jack was played by an African American, and there are more… Anime is for everyone.

    54. Oh, for sure. This “Sophiechan” is no match for the likes of Kyle Naylor. No, none of her work can compare to the famous art of Kyle Naylor. Your masterpiece known as “How To Draw Sonic” is certainly a work of art, no less. You are 1,000 times better than this random lady. I salute you, noble Artist, and wish you good luck in painting better than Vincent Van Gogh, like you always have.
