Bending the fingers more and increasing the space between the fingers conveys roughness and strength, if not, a blunt lack of sensitivity. 60 i The toes of one of the characters are directly below the chin or beyond it. Having the palm of the hand facing inward expresses acceptance and asseftiveness. When a person is suddenly pulled toward another, the normal response is to grab something nearby to support your weight. , The weight of the character is over the foot in front. Having the palm of the hand facing outward creates the feeling of resistance, rejection, and anxiousness. t I .,t:[i::: 1-', AN

Since the structure of the human body was factored in when drawing,' emphasizing the sexiness of the characters. Use of gradation and tone planing is effective for expressing roundness and three-dimensional effects. The instantaneous exhilaration and movement starts from the deformation of the picture's composition and solid expression of the bodies Flowing hair and a fluttering skirt are standard techniques for adding movement to a picture. Drawing the bodies of the two characters at an angle to the picture strongly depicts the force of the embrace and the weight and presence of the characters. By capturing the instant when they are off balance to the point that they might tumble over in the next scene, you can add an uplifting feeling that is striking. Additionally, the arms wrapped around the body of the other character solidly capture the three-dimensional effect of the bodies, making the presence of the characters more convincing and adding greatly to the presence of the two characters that have become one united body. l} Takehiko Matsumoto I Birthplace: Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan i Tools t .

  109. 109. by Yasuo Matsumoto The pattern on the female's pants are from a single tone. You can convey a spatial effect and sense of depth as well as a stylish atmosphere simply by shading black for the shadows and using diagonal lines for the inner leg in combination with a light tone. A character will look stylish if you partially use patterned tones. For the shadow of the hand on the ankle, draw a curve to match the curved surface of the foot. This alone will emphasize the weight and presence of the body. The nuance of two Iovers begins with the composition of cuddling and a carefully calculated center of gravity ln a picture of a couple cuddling, drawing the characters so that their weight and center of gravity are on the inside gives rise to the exquisite nuance of the couple leaning on each other. This is captured by drawing the upper body and head of both characters leaning in relative to the position of the waist and buttocks. The key to this picture is that the bottom of the left foot of the female and the bottom of the left leg of the male are both drawn. Realistic depiction of the details, i.e., raising of the foot on the side opposite the direction the weight of the body is being placed, impartS stability to the picture as a whole.

  111. 111. The reality created by clearly drawing the details, including the necktie pattern, the cup, and the hamburger wrapping, is an important element for drawing the reader into fictitious story. (- C: Ir Conveying the presence of the two characters begins with capturing the individual human beings-Contrast everything using fashion based on the personalities of the characters Two distinctive characters with completely different lifestyles and tastes are depicted using fashion and hairstyles. These two characters that appear to have absolutely no connection to each other have such a strong presence that it could make readers feel uncomfortable. However, the fashion based on the inner characteristics of the individuals adds depth to the world being depicted in the picture. The blank expressions of the characters give a cheefful mood to the overall picture, but the hands placed casually on the wrist and shoulder suggest the fearless personality of the boy in the back as well as the relationship between the two characters.

  113. 113. Make the shadow of the breasts sharp and boldly solid using black. By doing this, you can simultaneously express the pliability of the material of the clothing and sexiness. Note that the use of black (depicting reflection) on the shoulders and the side differs from that of the breasts (due to the difference in material). 116 Reveal the personalities of the two characters and their relationship using gestures and acting A strong-willed female and a male who cannot stand up to her. Their actions and expressions convey at a glance the world, the characters, and their relationship. This is fundamental to drawing comics and also the most important aspect. Additionally, the hand and foot adornments and adornments indirectly capture the personalities of the characters, their relationship, and the world. The fact that the two characters have absolutely nothing in common is just one of the many aspects that stimulates the imagination of readers.

  115. 115. Merging the border line of the cuff with the black on the body of the other character is one technique. There is a tendency not to integrate the outline and the background, but a mysterious mood or shade of meaning can be created by merging it with the background. This is the chest region that will be solid in the finished picture. The flat breastplate line conveys a boy of slight build. ln the case of this couple, "matching" colors were used only after the characters were distinguished by different hair color and body size. Their shirts are not exactly the same, but they have a similar "feel." This presentation arises when you want to simultaneously convey the idea that the characters are by nature individual humans but they want to be as close to each other as possible. The black shirts not only suggest that they are physically melding together and becoming one. They indicate the subtle state of mind and relationship of the characters. l) Jun Matsubara I Birthplace: Chiba Prefecture, Japan I Tools <) o Main lines and characters: G-pen tip, Maru-pen tip for fine areas (Zebra) .

You can convey female-like roundness if you think about the three-dimensional surface of the lower body when drawing the outlines of the pattern of the slacks. (: Tone usage on the body creates the sensation of light while also generating a healthy and cheerful mood This is a cheerful, fun composition. By drawing a zany moment, readers can imagine the mood of the characters after the jump is completed. The inflected body lines and the shadows expressed in places using tones generate the weight and presence of the bodies of the characters. The tone used along the bodies simultaneously creates the sensation of the sun shining down from the upper right. The secret to the freshness of this scene is the casual way it catches the characters jumping toward the sun and light. a MikiMurakawa l) Birthplace: Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan Representative work: "J-league Hero Retsuden" in Weekly Shounen Magazine, "Lineker Story," "Takagi Takuya Story," "Kawaguchi Yoshikatsu Story," etc. <) Tools t .

  118. 118. by Tomo Ohtake ---^r'* ) The pale colors and image composed of mostly white create characters that cut the space Using different hairstyles is one way to differentiate characters, but note that here a difference in "hair type" is depicted. Also note that both characters are looking in the same direction, but one character has moved just her eyes in that direction, while the face and body of the other character are facing that direction. This physically conveys a difference in how the two characters approach matters. The characters are simple and only slight tone is used for the shadows. The rock sufface drawn with a careful touch and the earth and horizon done in fine lines convey the aroma of the earth and create the sensation that the characters are one with the world. This gives rise to the unique transparency of the picture. <) Tomo Ohtake I Birthplace: Saitama Prefecture, Japan Representative work: "Hiite wa Tomoni Kurasou" Currently, working on commercial magazines <) Tools t .

  120. 120. The texture of the black cloth is conveyed by making the part reflecting light white. Leaving it white gives the material a lustrous look. ln general, black is depicted using gradiated tones. Here the cloth is on the hard side, simple, and refined. The steps taken when drawing a picture differ depending on the person. It is impossible to draw a rough sketch from the outset that approximates the final drawing if you do not have a clear image before you start drawing. 124 rul/ 1 The contrast between black and white creates a mysterious flavor The female is characterized by "black" with use of long black hair and a black skirt. ln contrast, the male is characterized by "white." Even though the scheme is simple, the balance of black on the female gives the picture a mysterious flavor. The slight tilt of the head and one paftially closed eye give the female a 'look of bashfulness and bewilderment. The male with his right hand behind his back and a straight posture gives a refreshingly confident impression. I Komachi Senngoku <) I Tools l .

Scattered light is depicted by mixing white and dotted lines throughout the picture including the hair and bracelet. The composition, facial expressions, and calculation based on a concept create a brilliant picture The concept here is two happy-looking characters in the light. The festive mood relies on the depiction of the characters including their composition and facial expressions and the flowing hair. The sun shining down from the upper left is presented by painstakingly drawing the details including the hair and clothing. The impact of the characters in the picture increases as a result of minimizing the half-tone shading used for the skin and presenting a clear contrast between black and white. i Rio Yagizawa <) Birthplace: Tokyo, Japan Representative work: "Senjo de...?!" and "BackAttacker" t Tools t o Main lines and characters: Zebra G-pen tip .
