^^ YEARS of practice, mah friend. and books. LOTS of art books.

i got my first "how to draw manga" book in 01'. before that, i was trying to copy wht i had seen in sailor moon. xD
here, i'll post some of my early work compared w. something moar recent:

I lol'd at pic#2. -w-;

Then again, I'm pretty much self-taught, so I guess I don't have much say -w-; I usually take a few good pictures and use elements from them, morph them while drawing and shoop some whoop over that. Works like a charm.

I suggest studying real human anatomy before concentrating completely on animu style. You see, it's a style, and a style is something that you apply on something, like in this case experience and knowledge of realistic anatomy.
And yeah, like it was earlier mentioned, the most important thing: lots of practice.

Remember to be open to critique. Some people cant handle it and ignore it completely. Those dont have much of a future.

I take a pencil with a large as Al Gore's nose eraser.

Then I take a lined piece of paper.

Then I take a circle and draw some little eyes and a mouth.

I draw two red socks and two stubby arms.

Then I draw some short hair, and a small mustache over the mouth.

TADA! Hitler Kirby! ;025

I am self trained, but I already knew the fundamentals of drawing which my father teach me...

(he is a real artist and portraits he made are really beautiful. Also my brother is good at drawing. It is only me being very poor at drawing...  ;018 )

Also in my life I read tons of books at home and comic books (No kidding)

And also I read "How to draw" lessons books at school.

I was fascinated by Anime and Manga, so I praticed to draw it.

Personally i just doodled enough in class that eventually my doodles became something. Influenced by the anime and manga. If my scanner works i'll scan some past works.
