Arrive at the Manga School Nakano for your approximately 3-hour manga lesson. Meet your instructor and fellow students, then listen to a brief lecture on techniques and the history of manga. Students of all skill levels are welcome; the instructor will adjust their lessons to you, whether you're a complete beginner or honing your craft.
Try out some manga production tools such as screen tones, inks and three different types of specialized pen nibs. Begin working on your own manga-type character in a step-by-step way, listening to instructions or demonstrations with each step. Beginners can choose from various manga references to copy with the instructor's help. Manga drawing has several processes; pencil drawing (draft), inking (erasing all pencil lines), painting black parts, correcting mistakes and adding highlights with white ink. The last step is pasting screen tones (grey parts, textures, effects).
At the conclusion of your class, you'll walk away with your finished manga drawing as a souvenir.
