Lesson 5 of Manga Cartooning Workshop Photo Journal

A few illustrations of cartoon versions of some students were used to demonstrate the effects of the different drawing pens from the classroom sketching kits.
The first illustration was drawn using a single 0.4 mm pigment pen with no line variation. Thus in order to convey different textures, a fish-net pattern was used to darken some parts of the character's costume.
This second drawing was made with a selection of pigment pens of different line widths plus a warm and cool gray brush pens to give a stronger sense of volume to this energetic character type.
Another drawing made with the same larger selection of sketching pens.
