The amateur Manga art of JAVY73

Postby JAVY73 » Wed Nov 24, 2010 4:16 am

Hi everyone! Here's my first Manga art version of Jesus.

I also used Photoshop to "boost" the image. I'm kinda rusty but I'll keep practicing for improvement. What do you think?

I'd love to see it before the "boost". :wink:

Hi,

I like the third drawing the most. I think that your figures have a good shape, just maybe the kneeling boy's left thigh is shorter. Just keep on drawing. 8)

your 'clean' style is appealing.

Could the clean style be a trace? Can you explain how you get it without smudges, imperfections, etc.

Hello everyone. I've got some replies:
@Gary Dee, thanks for the feed. You're welcome.
@Levai Attila, thanks for the feed and advice, I'll keep on drawing.
@Anthony, thank you for the feed. In order to keep the drawing as clean as possible I also use correction tape or correction fluid because I make lots of mistakes before I get the drawing completely done.
@Grube Gallery, I also tend to scan the drawing using Lexmark and before I save the image I click on "Fix Image". And I use Manga Studio and Photoshop to manipulate smudges and imperfections.

I drew this when I was in Iraq.
