Manga versus traditional art

Post by LeahG on Mon 19 Sep - 19:14

I've decided to have a go at drawing Manga

I have approached this by recreating some traditional style cartoons which I have already drawn so the differences in style can easily be seen side by side, what do you think?

I like Magna Mascot (bottom one) the most. I'd lose the star Like a Star @ heaven thing you have going on there though if I were you. It's unnecessary clutter and doesn't do your superb illustrations any justice and looks a bit cheap to be perfectly honest Leah. Any prospective Client worth their salt would make up their minds about this anyway but I think Circles would work better. But that's just me. I love your work. White space is good (as in backgrounds) like in the middle one. Think letterheads/ compliment slips/ business cards/ white vans etc. You are offering them a Corporate Identity and this needs to be very versatile and highly reproducible remember. On the Freelance site Projects Employers more than often ask for a transparent background. I'm sorry but the stars look a bit like Batman and Robin. I'm not trying to tell my Grandmother how to suck eggs here (well you are getting on a bit lol) but I've worked in the Industry. You won't have a problem anyway as long as they are vectorised. That's why the big demand for this so they can rescale and edit them themselves willy nilly anyway so no major deal but I'm just saying.

Plus what you should and could be charging more.

I agree Simon, the stars won't appear on anything I do for customers Smile

The recent garage one was a circle and they loved it. I also do them all with transpaent backgrounds. This Manga deomo thing is just my aesthetic.

Why don't you just blend them together in something even coolers?
