Making a graphic novel / manga
#33
So the most important thing, that I want to improve is to choose a style, that the finished version shall be done in.
I have 3 styles at hand that I found in other works, that I like and each I wanted to try.

One style that I want to try right now, is the classic `normal` Manga style.
The second is like a mixture of comicy and manga style.
And the third I think I will not be able to do, its `cool-looking, rough comic-style`.
(i might show examples of each in the future.)

So I am studying those and try to get a grasp on how they do characters, and how they make character-consistency, so that the same character looks like the same always.

But I find this pretty hard to understand.

I show you pictures of some studies. I looked at the noses (and in manga eyes also), that are each from the same character.
They always change what they draw and I cant see the system behind it.

on the one picture you see a green, red and blue box around the faces, they mean all the noses inside are from the same character.

Does anybody know:
How do they decide, which lines to draw, and where to leave a blank, just indicating the border of the nose by showing nothing?
How is decided when to draw a line and when to not draw it?
Sometimes its just a dot at the bottom of the nose and the reader reads it still as a whole nose.
But sometimes the whole nose with nostrels and everything is drawn.
But it is not annoying, when you read the manga.

Also, in the comicy style, they always draw the whole nose with all details, but every character has a completely unique nose and unique eyes and mouth. I dont know how they come up with a whole set of facial features unique for each character. That seems so hard!
