14 De­pict Move­ment

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight 15 Manga Secrets -

Manga is a dy­namic form of sto­ry­telling; when a char­ac­ter is in a full-blown fight, they re­ally look like as though they’re mov­ing, even fly­ing out of the page. Un­like su­per­hero comics that have fully inked char­ac­ters and points of im­pact, manga favours limbs that blur with mo­tion, back­grounds that be­come speed­lines, chan­nelling and en­hanc­ing the di­rec­tion of the mo­tion and high­light­ing the point of im­pact with em­pha­sis lines orig­i­nat­ing from it. Most of this is done through ink­ing, but can be done with screen­tone, too.
