    no one draws manga on manga tutorials

    for a website about manga why does no one draw manga?
    as a matter of fact most people don't even draw in the osamu anime style.

    All the people that used to draw manga-styled either

    A) Still draw manga-style
    B) Left it for another style (myself included)
    or
    C) Just don't come to the site anymore (like Foust)

    Plus MT started to be more of a generalist site years ago. The name doesn't necessarily reflect the prime focus anymore.

    I check it from time to time, more often then not it is more writing then actually discussion on how to draw it.

    How is it unfortunate that people have found their own styles.

    Are you daft.

    You do realise that the site itself has a lot of manga tutorials. Funnily enough, forums don't have to 100% reflect what the site is about. Think of the site as a sign to people; it says that there are like-minded people here.

    THOSE WHO POST NON-MANGA ARTWORK HAVE MARKED THEMSELVES FOR DEATH IN THE NEW WORLD ORDER *^*

    Japes aside, I think "Have you seen all the new people that come here and just post in the critique corner?" would be pretty accurate about the situation here. Unlike the artwork section, people can generally just post their ideas and run away again with no penalty. Which is why the comics section is like it is.

    But yeah.

    There are plenty of people who come here and have either posted loads of webcomics (that have since been buried by other posts), or are working on something, but they want to actually have something to show for it in order to be taken seriously.

    'Manga' as a style varies a fair bit from realistic to absurdly deformed. For that reason I prefer to think of 'manga' as a style of comic or a sequential story rather than a style of art as such. Just how I choose to see it. I also like to use it as a grouping of similar styles of art rather than any given strict 'style'.

    Apart from that I agree with JJ, Aether and GunZ.

    A "manga" is just a fucking comic book that you read backwards end of story.
