How to Draw a Basic Manga Drawing; Anime Art Drawing!
This tutorial will show you how to structure and outline a basic manga character. With a wireframe figure, you can view the body of the pose correctly and in proportions before adding details.

When drawing a manga figure, the right proportions are important. They are about 7.5 heads high. The heroes of manga actions tend to have longer proportions, at least 8 tall heads, often larger. The relatively small head enhances the dramatic effect of a low viewpoint in the “hero’s position”. This is a completely different look than the large format cartoon style.
