Who hates Backgrounds?
Storm Rave (5 days ago)
They make drawing so much harder than it needs to be.
Okami Jones (9 days ago)
I can draw backgrounds but I still need to improve on drawing them, this videos was really useful.
Gideon Madu (11 days ago)
I don't hate it. I just find it difficult to draw one.
Tremain Dzuimo (11 days ago)
They are nice for me but just having to get the angles and putting life into them is hard
jagmat21 ssgss (13 days ago)

Heavenrise (11 days ago)
I remember back when you were working on the first volume of Apple Black and I just wanted to tell you: I'm really proud of how much you've grown as an artist. You really worked really hard and evolved so much!
Asura Lord (11 days ago)
Hey Whyte can you do a video on panel transition. I have a problem on how I want the story to flow from panel to panel and what angles I should do. Its really annoying and all my pages end up looking exactly the same with the same characters in the same position or pose. Could really use any advice for this
Isakuma (12 days ago)
I love hearing about your headspace when making creative decisions for Apple Black and it really got me wondering what kind of music would best suit reading along with it? Is it like medieval tavern type music or does it have more of a middle eastern feel to it or even more tribal drums and stuff like that?
Astolfo Sulla Luna (12 days ago)
I need a video about perspectives
ema gel (13 days ago)
i want to buy copics ..what set is better between ciao A and ciao B
Ulysses _7567 (13 days ago)
Could you do a video having to do with how-to draw destroyed ground like when characters like goku power up the ground around them Breakes and starts to rise or something like that that's something I am trying learn to draw and can't really find a place for where to draw this
Bing Bang (13 days ago)
Hello!! do you also make fiction short-films ?:D There is a short film I would really like to share with you 🎥; you could search for "PLANETA ZEME STONJAUS" on YouTube Or send me a message to give you the link, thanks a lot !
Jennifer Santana (13 days ago)
Is it possible for you to make a video where you sort of rate our art or critique it? I think that would be super interesting and educational.

Denki Kaminari (13 days ago)
Dude u are awesome please do more tutorials like this
Lifesizemortal (13 days ago)
I hate drawing architecture more than anything. Truly makes me want to not draw. I'd rather take reference pics from my own town and trace them, personally.
Dalton Rife (14 days ago)
I hate drawing backgrounds, but in some cases they can bring the drawing to life so to say.
For me what inspired me to draw background was fullmetal alchemist.
HV_Studios (14 days ago)
Looks pretty intense
Jedi Templar (14 days ago)
Awesome. Once I plan out a story I can start some basics. Love the channel. Keep it up

ManiacMike F (14 days ago)
Wow. Because of watching one of your videos I haven't given up on learning to draw manga. Like you said in that earlier video I try to draw everyday still not great or at a arts students level but your advice was awesome. Great vids. I will definitely be checking out apple black.
Harsh Shukla (14 days ago)
Thinking of deciding city layout yesterday and what j got this morning...sensei uploaded a Video to help me!!!!....Thanks you so much!!!!!
Melissa Perez Salazar (14 days ago)
This is why I’m not majoring in architecture anymore!
E Castro (14 days ago)
I was wondering if you already had a video where you explain those red and yellow selections, I assume it's for printing purposes, but any extra info would be amazing!
Marquel Scott (14 days ago)
where did you get the spreadpage template from
Kozmic Kame (14 days ago)
Personally I've only tried drawing buildings but I don't know what to base the world on. Or where the places where my story takes place in world look as well. But cool video, your buildings looks great. And thanks for the vid
Kozmic Kame (10 days ago)
Daryl Aguilar The world I have in mind is casual like, but I want to have some mountains and stuff.. (boi is this a terrible explanation)
Daryl Aguilar (13 days ago)
You should look for places that fit the style of your story, like if your story has some futuristic vibes to it base it on modern Japan because of it's technology and neon lights. Or if it has some grungy or poor style people in your story, try referencing on third world countries.

Snigites (14 days ago)
This video is amazing. Everything that Whyt Manga does is amazing. I have been trying so hard to get to the point of creating manga styled figures and landscapes, but it was so hard. However, after looking at these videos and learning perspective and basic human anatomy, my drawings have greatly improved and a general style is starting to form. I really appreciate these videos and you being an American manga artist really shows that it is possible to have a career with this style. Thanks for everything!

I wish i can draw like this 😥
Hina-kun (14 days ago)
I'm willing to see an entire process of this lovely scape without any speedup or cutouts, like a live stream of a "drawing a double page spread panel from sketch to the digital finishing touches" titled video or something. The progress behind your work is amazing, just as your timing (I was planning on redrawing the cityscape that was originally planned to be on double page but turned out to be a poor single page panel with only one point perspective which didn't even have the slightest impression I wanted to make (´-ω-`)). So I'm sending you one of my biggest THANKS for sharing this along with a request of a drawing-with-you live stream! ヽ(*・ω・)ノ
Brian Uzuegbunam (14 days ago)
Drawing landscape and fictional cities is something I was nervous about doing for my story so I am glad you made this tutorial 😎👍

HERE TO THE GARDEN (14 days ago)
Could I ask what kind of scanner you're using? I love drawing manga traditionally but I don't have a scanner big enough to scan the pages (I am using the Deleter manga pages) and the ones that I see online that are big enough are for offices and stuff and they're like....4k $ so I am not buying that obviously.
J Bro (14 days ago)
If it's too expensive you can be like me and cut the edges from the pages and use a basic canon xD. Can't say it's high quality but ya kno
