I am doing this note, tutorial for my friends who have fight sequences in their manga but don't know how to do it.

----


I only came to realize how little there is out there on this topic on the net, after talking to a friend of mine about her manga she wants to do, but have struggles with action sequence designs.
When i search, i couldn't find good tutorials right away, that's a sign that people don't talk about this. Most of us who got ok at it just purely learned on our own, and usually does not discuss in tutorial form i believe. Those who are good are too busy doing work for others.



So here's some of my free tips for those who wants it.


I can't say i am particularly good at designing action sequences, but at least i don't have major problems...

As long as i am not doing...
Stare...SLASH, enemy falls.... fight ends.


ERRRRRRK... that's the cheapest.... scene... ever.

(Edit: But One Piece used it with Zoro. lol It works somewhat with Samurai fight style, and you don't need a great fight design for a great story, but it requires no skill in designing this kind of fight, I don't recommend using it and I will not use it personally.)

this helped alot :P im making a manga atm and its my first time doing so. i still havent mastered drawing the body and stuff but i really got the hang of it xD but whats hard is to know how each character look like from different angles. and i keep drawing too big and stuff and its hard to get both of the characters in one panel because i tend to draw very big, because if i dont its gonna look very very small and stupid :P but the reason why im making a manga instead of drawing a drawing of bodyparts a thousand times :D and sorry for this long comment

your problem is a basic drawing problem. Try to construct the characters like they do at Disney and you might have an easier time.
