ZIG Cartoonist: Mangaka -Part 02- Outlining

Today we are doing our second highlight of our ZIG Cartoonist Range.

As some of you may be aware, #Inktober is less than two weeks away, and we have prepared a series of posts to highlight some items that would be perfect for this art challenge.

Last time we highlighted the rendering markers in ZIG Mangaka - particularly the Light Blue and Gray for rendering.

In the above piece you can fainty see the blue that was used for rendering. Overtracing the line with blue will make it visible, but you can edit out with a brightness change.

The other colours in ZIG Mangaka are Black, Violet and Sepia. These pens also come packaged in our handy Manga Starter Sets: 2 Mangakas with 10 Kurecolor Markers (pictured below).

Violet (01, 02, 05) is perfect when colouring with colder colours


Sepia (01, 02, 05) is popular for a more vintage and steampunk approach.


For the above piece was inked with Sepia Mangakas. Once dried the piece was coloured in using traditional Gansai Tambi watercolours, using a BrusH20.

Black which has the most variety in tips (003, 005, 01, 02, 03, 05, 08).


For the above piece, our new ultra fine Mangaka 003 was used for the fine details around the eye. Once the marker is dried (approx twenty minutes), we coloured using Clean Color Real Brush - using a darker colour on the tips of the hair - we then pulled the red out with a lighter yellow to give a three diminsional effect. Mangaka is waterproof once dry.

Remember you are limited just to creating Manga with these pens! They are perfect for graphical studies also.

Next post we we will look at some of our Fude Pens!
