20 Ways to Draw Manga Eyes by markcrilley 20 Ways to Draw Manga Eyes by markcrilley
Some of you may remember my "100 Ways to Draw Manga Eyes" video for YouTube and its accompanying graphic here on DeviantArt. I decided to adapt this idea as part of my new how-to-draw-manga book for Impact Books. Rather than simply make them identical, I started from scratch, adapting some of the eye designs used in the video and also introducing entirely new designs. The compilation you see here gathers 20 designs spanning the range of eyes you'll see in the book when it comes out March 8th.

You can get a copy of "Mastering Manga" now at bn.com, amazon.com, or the online bookstore of your choice:

"Mastering Manga" book at bn.com: [link]
And Amazon: [link]

Thanks in advance if you choose to help me this way-- I am indebted to all of you for your support!

~Mark

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was 
ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her
mom and her dad. She got so
bad she went
to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More- government decided 
that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to 
kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were 
using went wrong.
And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every
week on the day of her death she returns to the person that
reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps
into
your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed 
to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she 
will haunt someone else who doesn't. This
isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments
in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life
tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this
chain
u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone 
will say i love you or im sorry WARNING IF YOU STOP READING YOU WILL DIE
TONIGHT. Hi I'm Mike. I'm 11 years old but I'm dead now. I had no 
friends... If you do not post this to 20 pictures you will die tonight 
at exactly 11:59pm.DON'T BELIEVE ME?A guy named Jake read this and
laughedlater that night I took a knife from his kitchen and stabbed him 
to death. You don't wanna be Jake do you?A girl named Sandra posted it
to only 10 pictures SILLY GIRL SHE'S ONLY 11 BUT OH WELL. That day she
saw me and ran to her grandma's house... She asked her could she use her
bathroom...but guess what i was already thereShe's now in a comaA smart
guy named Phil read this and posted it to 20 pictures because he was 
scared... The next morning he won the lotteryAnd his girlfriend accepted
his marriage.0 Pictures- Death10 Pics- A Coma20- pics something good

Wtf is up with posting stuff like this? It was probably made up by some 12 year old kid. And if you were foolish enough to even begin to believe this anyway, if the 'murderer' didn't have eyes, how could he have typed this in the first place? Please stop wasting your brain space and posting chain mail :\
