If you read enough manga, you will see how artists draw their characters and worlds. But where did the big eyes, the spiky hair and everything else that we associate with the manga come from? And how have artists used and modified these ubiquitous motifs for decades for their stories? Let’s take a quick look at the most common styles of manga characters and what we can learn from them!
The greatest influence of manga art comes from Disney cartoons. In particular, the Mickey Mouse shorts of the 30s and 40s, which the Japanese exposed after the Second World War. Osamu Tezuki (Astro Boy, Dororo), Shotaro Ishinomori (Cyborg 009) and Go Nagai (Devilman, Mazinger Z) use rounded characters and big eyes, which are clearly inspired by early western animation.
The modern girlfriend has been divided from the boring characters of the soap opera into many different aesthetics, such as: B. my attraction in Blend S and Bloom Into You, or more rounded and accurate body proportions in orange. You can even see the changes in style by comparing the earlier volumes of the romantic manga fruit basket to the later ones — subtle, angular patterns change to become more subdued and realistic over the years.
