If you could draw like any mangaka, who would they be? Pick your top three favourites! And what manga they draw that made you want their style of drawing.




As for me I’d want to be able to draw like…
~Kazuya Minekura who’s the mangaka for Saiyuki. Her manga’s are so bishounen filled and I just love her style of drawing, it’s different from any other mangaka All of the characters are different and the hair is just so detailed and amazing. And her chibi’s are just so cute!
~Yun Kouga who’s the mangaka for Loveless. Her style is just so beautiful. I just adore the way she draws Ritsuka and Soubi.
~The mangaka in Clamp who does the manga’s for Tsubasa and X/1999. They’re just so pretty, I’d love to be able to design all of the different clothes that the characters wear. It’s great how they can have a girl look so beautiful in a dress, without having the character having huge breast (eg Sakura from Tsubasa)






Sorry if there is a topic like this one! I just wasn’t sure how to word this properly so I could search. If there is one, then feel free to lock it!

Moved to manga, but there is a risk that this might be a duplicate. I'm going to judge it as not for now, but a future mod is more than welcome to impose his/her own opinion.

MOVED to Manga.

Also, for those: Mangaka = manga artist (sorta obvious though)

Ken Akamatsu - he fits classic lines in a bubble, maximizes the space on a page and brings out the most hilarious of dialogues.

Yuu Watase - the art can be summed up to one word -beautiful.

Eyeshield 21 -> not sure who's the name because the one who make the story and the illustrator is different. i just love how he draw from unusual POV, it makes the pictures some kinda alive
Takehiko Inoue -> i like the drawings that looks almost like the real things, i mean it's like a photograph. very detailed and beautiful

Ken Akamatsu style is my favorite as being the most classical ... in my point of view ... and isnt too fancy (not that I dont like fancy style.... but his is my favorite xD) ... and mainly because I love his characters "chibi" faces!!

An example of chibi faces:

Imma have to second Kazuya Minekura. Her artwork is absolutely amazing, and her stories and dialogue are fantastic. I'd give anything to be as talented as she is.
Also? Kazuhiko Mishima. Her art is all kinds of cute <3

Urasawa Naoki (Monster, Pluto, 20th Century Boys) or Takahashi Tsutomu (Jiraishin, Skyhigh, Skyhigh Karma, Alive, Sidooh, Blue Heaven). Not only do they both have unique drawing styles, they also are amazing at thinking up plots and creating lovable characters. Here's some of Takahashi Tsutomu's drawings:
