The hardest thing about making a comic/ manga is character/location names and the name of the comic/ manga
-to me at least

you're question sounds funny. shoujo is not a style of drawing and shonen is not a style of drawing its a genre of manga. so how can one be harder to draw then the other? well i guess if you're asking which manga is harder to make it'd definately be shonen because most of the time it requires drawing many action scenes. action scenes need alot of emotion and poses. shoujo does too but its more soft. i dont know maybe thier the same.


Your partically correct, they are used are manga genres. But in Japanese Shojo means female and Shonen means male. So Shojo is more soft and more curves and Shonen is more rough and tough. Both have pros and cons but I wanna see overall which is harder to create?

EDIT: I would also like if anyone has and pointers or hints they use to make a Shojo/Shonen picture, that would be really helpfull XDXDXD

Shounen if uve been drawing it long enough then most of your pictures will come out looking like shounen. But shoujo is piss easy to draw cos ive been drawing mu bodies like shoujo for a very very very long time and the faces are easy to draw anyways. Its harder to create shounen characters tho.

don't know...they both seem pretty easy to me...sometimes lol but mostly it's easy...I usually copy a shojou/shonen character & then I draw it in my own style & form a new one...I kinda fuse them, get what I'm saying?then I get all my experiences from drawing that one character to improve in my drawings.

^Oh I see, too bad I can't get past the copying part....XPXPXP

shonen has more background detail...but shojo characters are delicate and hard to draw so I say they are about the same

Well I don't trace either, but I always have a problem of noticing something out of proportional when I get further ahead and it keeps bugging me....XPXPXP

guyz.
cuz i don't like drawing girls when i get to the chest. face is fine though =)

^Yeah but the problem with Shonen is that the characters looks so traditional. I like to draw Shojo because it's very creative and with girls some of them are bound to have an accessory or two which makes them even harder to draw. XDXDXD
