    1. …..Why is Russell Simmons in the Suggestions column, along with an Unzippered Face Makeup tutorial???? I was under the imoression that only Mnga/Anime type art would be suggested. I fail to see what those two video’s have to do with Manga.

    3. @TurtwigLover2121 You’e welcome. I learned what pencil he used by watching an old video of his last week.I wondered the same thing; what kind of pencil is he uses that can’t even be erased?I was so glad I stumbled across that vid. Or, more likely, Youtube recommended it to me.I’m glad you like my cat. Lol.

    4. is this type of drawing human faces called “Manga”? but why are these eyes are SO BIG? the size of the eyes are ridiculous. it is known that Japanese created these type of big eyes in their drawings and cartoons. and we all know why Japanese draw big eyes. but in these big eyes there is a look of a dumb childish passive person that is annoying too. their big Manga eyes are not human eyes; they are the eyes of the dumb sheep.

    5. @CosmicCaprice If you really hate how stylish manga is, then you might as well stop watching manga videos whereas i think they’re cuter than real human eyes… not even a single percent a dumb sheep like you think it is, i know im just 10 but i can’t stand myself from taking you down…Thumbs up if u think im right

    6. Wow bro calm down, this style of eye drawing is looked up upon for a reason. I can understand you don’t like the style, but insulting it and writing your negativity all over it really just shows you haven’t evolved from a child. Why does EVERY eye style have to be the same realistic, small eye? Manga eyes are unique, I admire them.And please look at other manga styles of eyes like shonen before you say “They are too big”.

    7. so you’re saying insulting/talking negatively about something u dont like means you’ve remained a child? why? i think saying that makes you a retarded child. do you mean that adults never criticize any artworks, and only children criticize artworks? i’ve never seen any child talking about art. only adults do. and if adults dont like an artwork they say they dont like it. why should they lie and say they like a bad style of artwork? i hate something, then i say, “i hate it”.why lie? u are stupid.

    8. Secondly, plenty of children talk about art. My son talks about art all the time he is nine years of age and is planning on selling manga in the future like Mr. Crilley here, I was just showing him this video to help him and couldn’t help but notice pure idiocy of your comment.

    9. Eiichiro Oda, who is a world famous manga artist (One Piece), was interviewed about Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail:”I trained Mashima-San, and I think he is a great artist, however I see some-” basically he goes on about how he personally doesn’t think Fairy Tail is the best.Throughout the interview, Oda did not say anything negative about Mashima or Fairy Tail, just some constructive criticism.(Oda also likes Fairy Tail now)

    12. I know we are different types of people… I actually care about other peoples feelings and interests, even If I don’t like them. I respect them for what they enjoy… People should be able to like something without getting slandered or mocked at.For example, I don’t go around saying “Justin Beiber sucks” because some people might like him. Personally, I can’t stand the kid, but I hate to see people feel horrible for their interests, all because of how I feel about them…

    13. So based on your “logic”, if i hate Hitler i should not say “I hate Hitler” because if i do Nazi people would feel “offended” for my comment against Hitler. Then if we all do what you say is “logical” then in the future nothing would change for better, because we all are afraid to change for better because our changing stratigies might “offend” some people. i don’t care my comment “offended” you or anybody else. the truth must be told. honestly, i feel this type of drawing makes boys feminine.

    14. You keep missing my point… My “logic” is that I don’t go to other videos just to make time-wasting negative remarks that will only cause hate. I find that completely stupid.If I know my words are going to offend people, I don’t say it. However, you have no respect for other people at all so I can’t take anything you say very seriously.This style of manga drawing is called “shojo” it IS a feminine drawing style, it is aimed at girls. Research “shonen” style eyes if you find this so feminine

    15. what do you mean “because”? can’t you see it yourself? do i have to explain everything to you? these “manga” eyes/faces are soft, weak, submissive, passive, feminine, gay, agreeable, gullible, trusting, not-a-fighter, empty, disconnected -from-reality, dependent, un-individualistic, non-threatening, not-strong, childish, stupid, dumb, sheep or herd-mentality, non-independent, non-powerful, non-aggressive, unintelligent, etc. get it? how can a little boy draw these eyes & faces & become a man?

    17. I cant believe some people don’t like manga! Are they TOTALLY INSANE! I can not draw totally realistic eyes but with manga eyes I managed to do an okay job. Now I always draw manga people wherever I go. Without Mark Crilley I would never have known the wonders of manga. Thanks so much Mark!!

    18. I mean beacuse your last sentence stated nothing but opinion and not facts at all.Not all manga eyes have to be harcore looking or the I don’t care attitude there are mutiple eye types a person can draw and these are part of it. Since when did drawing manga eyes determine if you’re a man or not?

    19. “These” manga eyes are half of what you say… Look up people like Alucard from Hellsing, and tell me he looks soft, weak, submissive etc… You haven’t even looked up Shonen yet, I can tell because you wouldn’t be saying such idiotic things making you look completely stupid.If you still think so… then go back to your little super hero comics then. Alucard owns Superman….

    20. @markcrilley You really shouldnt be so concerned with making your videos short. I’d like to hear the detail in what you are doing. It’d be more beneficial to the viewer, in my opinion, if you didn’t always time lapse your videos. Just a suggestion, of course. No offense meant, just constructive criticism! ^-^Thanks, Lilah

    21. Could you make a video that shows how to draw “pretty” male eyes? Not the super serious one like in action manga, but the big eyes that are not so narrow but still look male? It’s usually used for younger males – for example, the eyes of Negi from Negima are round but not quite so feminine. If you could it would be much appreciated!

    22. “Soo….Mark, want to do a drawing together?””Sure!””Ok, so the needed supplies are 1, a pencil, 2, a PrismaColor Black PC935 Pencil, 3, an eraser.””Sounds good, I got all of those but one.””Which one is that?””Well first off, whats an eraser?!”

    23. 92 people have an opinion that they’re free to put out. Most likely you’re jealous of his drawings seeing as how you feel the need to make an ass out of yourself and assume that everybody in the world is jealous. But I get it, I honestly do, ignorant bitches like you hate the fact that people have the freedom to click on a dislike button based on the pure fact that they did not like, therefore disliked, Mark Crilley’s video. You state, with nothing to prove it, that people are jealous. Dumb ass.

    27. My friend is killing me with her talk about how she’s improving so much!! Im just like Mark Crilley.. Im sort of upset because she KNOWS that I can’t afford the book, and she’s copying pretty much every “new” (not any more) idea I’ve had for my own drawing. Thanks for letting me reply to you in a rant. >.<

    32. Dear Mark.Is there a way we can get our own.. let’s say a “signature” way of drawing eyes? I want to draw eyes but most ways of drawing eyes are taken already and I don’t wanna look like I’m copying a certain artist. I’d like my own way of drawing eyes that when people look at it, they’ll know It’s my drawing.

    33. What kind of pencil are you using? I have a little drawing kit thing with pencils and some kind of white block eraser thing,graphite (I think it’s graphite) sticks…and woodless pencils..one broke so I don’t know what one is I only know one of them is 6B..and it came with like 3 other pencils but I cannot find them right now..I use reg. pencils and pens and mechanical pencils instead..I’m thinking about going to Hobby Lobby and getting a different one..

    34. I know you wanted Mark to answer, but let me just say that in my own experience when you draw a particular thing for a long time over and over, you make minor changes every time that you don’t even realise, so your first drawing will be different to one drawn, say, a month later. You get your own style after you get comfortable.

    36. Not to be rude, but you’re kinda selfish. I say that because you only ever say thanks once and you beg people to buy you’re book so you can get more money. Plus your saying manga wrong” u say “monga, and u pronounce it manga.

    37. manga’s are actually hard to make. (I tried and all the characters looked different every frame ;_;) and manga has different pronounciations. for example, Manga with an AH sound, an A sound, an O sound, I’ve heard all ways.

    38. Actually, manga can be pronounced two ways: in Japan ext, it’s pronounced “Monga” and in America, it is pronounced “Manga”, but no one really cares, so you can pronounce it either way. (One of my friends, and myself pronounce it “Monga”, while my other friends pronounce it “Manga”, but either way works) =^^=

    39. Also, in Japan, the letter a is pronounced as the a sound is te word saw, so it makes sense that it would be pronounced “monga” in Japan. And in America, we pronounce the letter a as in the word great, or apple (depending on the word), so it makes sence that we would pronounce it “manga”. However, some people prefer “monga”, and since pronouncing it “monga” isn’t exactly wrong, it doesn’t matter how you pronounce it, as it is correct either way . =^^=
