    6. Any one who is interested in the @isaac50006 argument just to save the effort of searching it is just some brat kid who said mark sucks we all suck then mention how no one can hurt him (but he doesn’t know we can track his IP and what not from his YouTube account find him and track him down not saying you should but just saying) Or you guys can just do CTRL + F then type in his name and read it all XDJust to say mark this was excellent thank you once again! XD

    8. thanks a lot for these nice videos. can teach us how to draw face parts one by one and how to make changes for each part the deferents between male and female face parts and then we can try to draw many faces using our imagination and after that i suggest u to teach us how to draw body parts one by one and how to make changes i think after that we will be able to assemble the parts to make full character and we can change the look of these characters as we like. thank you very much

    11. Thank you so much, Mark. I mean it. I’ve been in a serious artists’ block (writers’ and drawing) lately, and I realize JUST NOW that I should have simply looked at your videos! I don’t know why I didn’t do it before, because your videos never fail to inspire me to get back into my creative hobbies, so I thank you so much for that. I almost thought my creative drive was completely gone.

    12. thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ this really helped many people ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t really know why people are giving bad thumbs for this … I mean, Mark makes the effort to teach and upload these videos. Instead of subscribing/thanking him, you reward him with a thumbs down. Don’t like his video just don’t watch … Unless you can draw better than him, i don’t see why he deserves a thumbs down.

    13. I know most of you probably aren’t going to read this, but next week I turn 17, and I want to become a walrus. I know there’s a million people out there but I promise you im different. On December 14th, im moving to the North Pole ( home of the greatest walrus) I’ve already cut off my arms, and now slide on my stomach everywhere I go as training. I may not be a walrus yet, but I promise you that if you give me a chance and the support I need, I will become the greatest walrus EVER

    14. When you have made up your mind to begin a campaign in network promotion, you should consider what form of compensation package deal you, in addition to the people you are working with, might obtain. It really is key to know the compensation you need to expect right before you enter into any agreement so you do not squander your time with an organization which has minor to offer.

    16. @markcrilley I was so happy when you said you don’t really have to fit one eye in between when you do the face because that whole rule just drove me crazy!!! The way I draw eyes is actually kind of like this one manga illustrator, her name is Mato, and she used to draw the Pokemon Adventures manga.

    20. dude..not to sound like a hater , but why all manga artists only use asians physic? whats so special about this f people. why not use other race” physics..exp blacks, whites,hispanics. why only asians? can any one answer this simple question.

    21. there are manga in which you can distinguish between diffenrent “races”. but, well..mangas are from japan and so the most of the charas are japanese. and of course it is this style..i thing all of those who like mangas also like this..what did you say?… “asians physic” … so it’s okay that the eyes are most the same.and if you read more manga, you will be able to distinguish different “races”, as you said, and types of faces. good luck!

    26. As far as the differences between anything male or female, I generally notice a difference in how curvy or wide something is. With women, things like their torso, chin, cheeks, legs, and eyes are more curved then in men. Men generally have sharper jaws, noses, and more robust features.Sizes aren’t the huge thing though if you ask me (I’m an artist too); a serious woman should have round, feminine, but more narrow eyes in anime, and kind guys can have wide eyes, just make the angles sharper. =P

    27. after watching just about all of mark crilley’s videos i can honestly say that this video pissed me off the most. I hate Mark Crilley for being so damn perfect (no offense) and i hate myself for being a failure of an artist.(offense intended) keep spreading your art to the world Mark your doin’ a great job.

    28. I understand how you feel. There are days where you just want to chuck your art supplies out the window and burn your pictures. And watching other artists who can draw a perfect eye in a mere 2 minutes, can make the feeling worse. But, all artists go through it. Some more then others. There are times where you just have to walk away and then come back to practicing, and eventually your style will evolve in to great works of art. ๐Ÿ™‚

    29. I love your “anacomically” correct way of describing proportions. “In an anatomically correct drawing, the eyes are one eye length apart, but in MANGA…” It serves a very useful purpose both ways :DKeep up the videos, and I’ll be back with another comment…real soon.

    32. I’ve been wanting to face my fear of drawing male manga characters for quite some time now, so I’ve been watching some of your videos on drawing them. I have to say that they helped me tremendously! Body proportions are no longer a challenge, I know what stances to draw them in, and I finally understand how to draw their eyes! Before this, I could only draw female characters, but now a whole new door has been opened for my artistic self. Thank you Mr. Crilley! ๐Ÿ˜€

    33. Researching to settle argument. One Goodreads site reader photo gallery has seated covered up anime figure I thought girl, others say boy. Lovely pairs, easy to compare one above other. Only improvement could be maybe speed up a bit? But a pleasure to watch every line. Thanks for rendering beautiful eyes, so different.

    34. I actually draw my eyes as sort of a cross between the two. I like my characters not to be too girly, so I tend to keep the eyes thin and sharp looking, but I do add girly little eyebrows and lashes. I usually add a smaller highlight so that I can make two for a girly sort of tinge to the eyes. I love your eyes!!! The male eyes are very dramatic and sharp, and I really love how the lines aren’t too thick, and how sharp they look! Mine are hard to draw, and yours gave me a lot of tips! Thank you

    36. I’m an “ok” artist, but I’m getting a little better as I go along. I used to suck at everything I drew. Have you always been this good, or do you just gradually get better with experience? The reason I ask is because I can’t tell you how many papers I have crumpled up and thrown away. Is there any hope to keep trying???

    38. I’m not sure if I’m correct or not but you do not give much detail to the female’s nose. As in there will not be any indication of the nose bridge for the female’s compared to male’s. Unless it’s a much more realistic manga I guess. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    44. You can’t expect him to describe EVERYTHING he’s drawing. That would just make the video boring. If you’re actually listening to his “nonsense”, you’d notice he’s giving advice on how to draw the eyes. There are many types of manga eyes. If he were to say “draw a straight line here, make sure it’s this big and this wide, then make sure this is curved like this” and things like that, you wouldn’t truely be learning anything.

    45. In 100 years, someone will want to learn how to draw anime, go to YouTube, find this, think it was amazing, and then realize that the creator of it is dead. Won’t that be weird? YouTube channels who were made by people who are now dead?

I make OK videos (I would say, anyway) that include covers, art tutorials (mostly cartoons but also realistic things), hair tutorials, plays I do with my friends and so on.

    51. Yeah, now that I look at it, the eyes do match the Korra style. I was also thinking that the male eyes remind me of Mai’s eyes from Avatar. In the episode The Boiling Rock (Part II), in that shot where Zuko just locked Mai in that room in the prison so he can escape. When their eyes meet; it reminded me of Mai’s eyes there.

    56. You want to use a ruler, when you use the guidlines of a face that should help a lot. He dosn’t use a ruler because he got used to hand to eye corrdination, which takes a long time. If you want to see guidlines of a face, I’m not sure if he has a video on it so I suggest you look it up on google images, and find which one you like best :3
