Well it is now April 3, which means my project of Manga March Madness has officially more than ended. My official scanned drawing count is 25. I still have about three more that are penciled and needs inked, and another three more that are rough outlines. I will posting all of those as they get finished and I have time to scan them. 

Overall I'm fairly pleased with this little project. I would say it was a rather large learning experience. There are so many other characters I want to draw, and I actually started to read some new manga in the process. 

If you notice that my drawing style and influence changed as I went. Sometimes I was trying to capture the feel of the actual book, or artist. Other times I was adding a ton of detail. Towards the end of the month I started looking at Alex Toth artwork and started to incorporate his minimal but well detailed lines. He was a master at black and white and what lines to exaggerate and thicken over what ones should be thinner. He also knew how to add the right amount of detail without going overboard. I feel that the earlier drawings in the month sometimes got lost in detail, where the later drawings I started to learn to hold back some of that detail. Anyhow I like the process of learning and the results I hope anyone reading this will look at them and enjoy them also.

So here is the official list.

Thanks, I would probably agree about the basics being fairly strong, but now I need to step it up. I just cant figure out how. So what would you suggest to make the faces cuter?

No problem you really have a very nice look going on. You have a bit of a classic cartoon strip feel to you. I really like it. I wish I could figure out how to do something similar.
