Tip #1: Draw from mangas/anime/other people.

You'll learn to develop how manga/anime looks, and is drawn.
Just be sure to develop your own style as you draw. or people you copied from will go >>

Tip #2: As you develop, remember to draw everything.

Because if you spend all your life drawing faces, you'll have chacters with awesome faces, but... not-so-great bodies. xD
Tip #3: Possibly the most important tip. Don't get discouraged!

No ones started out being able to draw perfectly! (*cough* Picasso... *cough*) No matter what anyone says, "Just keep drawing!"

Get Manga Studio Ex...
It is a paid software, but you can find it on google and download it for free if you are resourceful enough....
It is one good software to get started...It has ready-made tones, basic backgrounds such Japanese schools....towns and such....

They have pens that manga artist use too....G-pen, school pen...
I have yet to do a manga with the software yet...but I have a few examples of one page manga drawn and illustrated in manga studio EX....and you will find it very similiar to hand drawn manga by professional manga artist out there....
