1 Develop a theme
When it comes to a theme in manga, a cute girl is always an excellent subject. I’m going to draw a girl in my favourite style: Taiwanese aboriginal. Initially, I don’t have a clear idea about her pose or what else I should add to the composition. After many sketches, I decide that an interaction between the girl and some animals is fun to work up. I decide to depict a Chinese dragon, which represents my culture.
