My Manga Treasury

I was organizing some papers and stuff at home and I found a sketchbook that I used for drawings. While I was checking it, I found some of my Manga drawings that I made some time ago. I love manga, especially for the beautiful faces and hair. Since I was a child I use to get very inspired by manga drawings to create my fashion sketches. It's funny because some of my teachers at the fashion school, noticed that influence. They said that the faces of my fashion illustrations looked a little bit like Manga faces. They wanted me to draw my fashion illustrations with more realistic faces instead of using the manga influence. That wasn't a problem for me, because I like to be able to draw in different ways so I followed their instructions. At the end of the course, they congratulated me for listening of what they said and being open to change. Now I can draw in different ways, if I want to draw with my Manga influence, I do it and if I want to make more realistic faces, I can do it as well. I'm happy to have listened my teachers; I think it's very important to listen in order to learn. I really learned a lot of fashion illustration techniques from them. I'm very thankful with all my teachers :)
I wanted to share with you some of my Manga drawings . I drew these ones with an "extra black" pencil # 555

"Amor mio"
