Start sketching a shape with a pencil, for example a round shape as a head.
Continue building upon the shape by sketching a chin, and lines for the eyes, ears, neck and hair.
Colour the sketch with pens.
To finish, draw in the outlines with a thin, waterproof drawing pen.
Manga is the Japanese word for drawn comics. In Europe, manga refers to Japanese-style drawings. Manga figures often have big eyes, small noses and mouths, and unusual hair colours. ProMarkers, which are alcohol-based, or Koi pens, which are water-based, are ideal for colouring manga drawings. Alcohol-based pens require a special pad, known as a marker pad, which keeps the ink from spreading out or seeping through the paper. For water-based pens, simply use ordinary white drawing paper.
