This post looks Manga eye-to-eye.
Manga eyes are so expressive. They're the most exciting facial feature.
* The eyes are windows into your character *
Countless feelings and emotion can be conveyed through subtle and not-so-subtle techniques. I found the Eye Charts below helpful because you see a host of emotions up-close and how vividly shape, detail, lashes and color can make an eye sparkle.
I didn't realize how many brilliant ways there were to capture emotion! Through tears, close-eyed happiness, or wide-eyed brightness. I wish I had the talent of these artists.
I’m working on some new characters and learning to draw Manga. While I’ve done character drawings and sketches before, none were really Manga-style. I’m still developing my ‘sight,’ how in writing we have a ‘voice.’ It’s fun, challenging, and creative.
