Module 3: Making attractive illustrations


Effective Expressions of Objects

In Manga Module 3, students will build from the earlier modules and learn to draw manga characters and objects at an advanced level. In this lesson, students will be taught how characters and objects look different from various camera viewpoints. They will learn to choose a composition which portrays the features of these characters and objects more attractively.

Effective Expressions of Characters

In this lesson, students will learn to draw manga poses from different camera viewpoints to express a character’s personality and features. You will learn how poses differ according to changes in the center of gravity and the balance of body parts, which are in turn influenced by the character’s gender, age and body type.
