    3. @markcrilley thank you so much for putting this How To Draw video up, it really helped me out. Before i didn’t even know how to draw hair and still don’t (but keeping up the practice this video told me to do) i could get better. Maybe one day I could become a great manga artist such as yourself.

    7. Excuse me, I don’t even know what herterochromia is but I’m pretty sure you just insulted Mark. I’m not sure if your mother ever told you this or you have forgotten but, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anthing at all” And it’s your preference whether or not you shade your eyes but I think that his art is awesome so don’t go being mean to people. Don’t make your soul a hole. (AHHH!!!! Rhyme!!)

    11. Whenever you have crafted up your mind to begin a campaign in network promotion, you have to take into consideration what type of compensation package you, as well as the individuals you are working with, may get. It really is key to find out the compensation you must expect prior to you enter into any agreement so you do not waste your time and energy with an organization which has minor to provide.

    12. I don’t think this type of ‘reference drawings’ videos are any good to who ever wants to ~LEARN~, first one has to understand the planning in constructing a character. The rest, like this video, is just referencing (Which is fine on it’s own).If you draw without an idea how the character should look like (eye sockets depth, forhead size, direction of gaze, countenance, etc), this sort of videos would be extremely frustrating; since you only copy-pasting the author without actually ‘learning’.

    13. 43 people decided to take there anger out on Mark Crilley because they don’t have enough patients to become a talented artist. Since the summer before last, I’ve drawn at least 1 drawing every single day. I’m still not an amazing artist, but every time I look at 1 of my pictures from 6th grade, I’m amazed by how much I’ve improved. No one is just born an expert at something, but the only people that do become experts are those who put in the time & effort, so don’t be discouraged. Just practice!

    14. Naa, you are not the only one, tutorials helped me a lot. For sure Mark is way better than I am or most probably than I’ll ever be. I’m still having some trouble with eyes of my characters and some other details, but there’s nothing that cant be fixed with practice and patience. I guess the main idea is not to give up after a few failed attempts.

    19. I began drawing manga at the age of 12 and I still need alot of practice considering making ONE “perfect” masterpiece and kinda looked like the naruto kind of manga. All i’m saying is to some of you who think you’ll never be as good as mark: Pick up your pencils and continue like i did. 🙂

    20. Wow Mark Crilley, I watched your videos ever since like 2009-2010 and it’s amazing over two years I’ve become a better, much better drawer than I was back then. Your videos helped me not to get frustrated with the mistakes I make, but to make something out of it. I really do appreciate every and last video you make, and it’s inspire me to keep on doing what I’m doing. Even though I may not get anywhere, but drawing in general is my hobbie, and you helped it become a passion. Thank you Mark. <3

    21. I like it that you teach your knowledge on how to draw manga anime and have the time to record to the ones who are rather confused and doesn’t know how to draw. You really inspired me like many other drawers out there. When I watch your videos I get the urge to get my pencil and try to draw what you have taught sometimes I fail sometimes I don’t but it’ just the way all Manga artists been through. Thank you Mark Crilley for all your videos. Sincerely those who watch your videos. 🙂

    23. Granted I’m not Mark Crilley, but! When you’re drawing your own manga, eye style (along with most everything else) is really up to you. Depends on how you want the character to look or what vibe you want them to give off, but eyes are totally up to you ^-^ I’ve seen a ton of different styles in a bunch of different mangas, from huge chibi eyes to thin, almost cynical ones. Just have fun with it! (paragraph, sorry…)

    24. I hold my hand like his whenever I draw, and people that look over my shoulder when I am drawing are like, “What are your bones made out of?” xD It’s just how I keep my hand still and precised on the picture since I have the crappiest handwriting ever. 😛

    29. Can you show us how to draw guidelines when you want the face to look a certain way. For example: when you want the face looking slightly to the right or left. Are the guidelines for the face always the same? And please do a video about WHERE and HOW to shade. 🙂 Thank you! I love how you explain every little thing! 🙂

    31. If you meant the path of love then no.If you meant drawing then I am way ahead of JUST being an amateur.The best advice I can give you is to make your dream guy get used to you, I am one so I know what I am talking about, get familiar with each other and try to find out what his good points are and use them to your advantage.Once again I am a guy so I am giving you in on a little secret.

    33. The more fantasy/action type Mangas such as Dragonball Z/Naruto/Bleach and etc.I don’t read that much manga but when I do then it would be the ones I read after I watch the series to see if they have any continuations. ( Because sometimes they just stop the series and the Manga continues )Ah My Goddess is also a good one.

    35. Hello, I am a new subscriber.. I want to learn how to make a person anime.. I mean, “manganize” the real person.. I like to draw my favorite idol into an anime or a manga without losing his distinct looks.. Like when you look at the drawing you can recognize the real person.. I do not like to draw him so realistic.. I like to make him look like a manga character.. Thank you!!

    39. I watched a few of Mark’s videos yesterday and they really helped me. I’ve never drawn anime before and yet my results were quite good. What I did was, I watched the videos and paused them every so often, careful drawing the details onto the page with a charcoal pencil. It’s hard to explain, you just have to try following every little detail even if it means pausing every five second… Also, I drew around a mug for circles, that helps too haha. xD

    40. Don’t know if anyone will see this quetsion, since this article is a bit older, but: I’ve ordered this from Amazon (gladly) but was surprised to see the note that it “usually ships in from 1 to 3 months” (sounds almost like they’re printing these on demand). Has anyone had experience with a recent order from Amazon of this title? Did it really take that long?

    41. I am immensly impressed by all of your videos!! For such a talented American artist, you are extremely proficient at drawing the Japanese manga style of art! (Far better than what I’ve seen from several people, namely ‘Christopher Hart’, who has a very ‘cartoon’ look, and uses mostly computer programs for color/shade.I myself am good at drawing manga, but haven’t really developed my own style. I aspire to one day draw as quick, professional, and creative as you. Thank you so much for posting!^^

    42. @markcrilly Hello!!! I have always loved drawing and I fiddled around with it but I didn’t do a lot of serious drawing. Since discovering manga it has really got me excited and wanting to learn ever possible technique and detail about drawing it! But I don’t really own or know much about the art supplies necessary for drawing manga. Could you tell me what I would need in way of supplies??? However, I am on a budget so I would need to shop on the less expensive side.

    46. everytime i watch one of your videos i end up making an entirely different drawing than the one that you do. I’d start like you and than on my way i’d think little things like hmm, I want that hair over here or how about I make the fingers clench or lets make her hold her waist, or lets make the eyes bigger with small eyebrows and no lashes. Before I know it you have a school girl and I got a super powered lawyer or something.

    49. That sucks. I know kinda how you feel. I used to be the best drawer i knew but going into middle school/ high school all that changes since there’s so much more people who are older then you and have more talents and such. But before all that people used to be a bit jealous of my drawing and would often ask for help or “lessons.” And after i’d show them, it’d be the only thing they draw and they’d brag to their friends about how good they are… :/
