Art Afro #87 – “Manga Afro” by Unicia R. Buster – October 21, 2015

"Manga Afro" by Unicia R. Buster

“Manga Afro” by Unicia R. Buster

I checked out a book from the Richmond Public Library, “Idiot’s Guides: Drawing Manga.” It will definitely take some practice. What I noticed is the absence of black features – and why I should be surprised is beyond me. Nevertheless, I gave it my best shot to make her look ethnic while still following the directions of the book. Where I really messed up was trying to color it in with really thin markers. I should have used coloring pencils or scanned it and used the computer to fill it in. And her hair looks more like lettuce and less like an Afro. The book covered spiral hair and wavy hair, but no textured hair, coily hair or anything close to resembling an Afro – of course.
