It can be said that the reason for the characters to look western is to give each character a very distinct appearance so to distinguish the characters in any Animanga (both Anime or Manga)

Here's how to draw an anime eye step by step!!
I’m going to write a lot more about how to draw anime characters in the next weeks, but for now, here’s a short guide with the basic stuff you’ll need to know before proceeding into this domain.
Want to learn how to draw Anime or Manga characters? Listen up. I'm not from Japan, its not from Japan, it's not in my culture, but I spent much of my time studying the Anime design, and I would like to teach you what I know. In this tutorial, you will learn how to create faces, bodies, and other various aspects of Anime. Take your time and keep practicing, and soon, you'll be much better than me.
The anime/manga face is unique in many aspects and it's generally easier to approach it differently than you would a 'realistic' face. Depending on what style you're trying to work with there are of course different ways that may work better for each.
I know there already is a tutorial about making a drawing clean style, but it is the only thing I can make a tutorial about, and i do it different than most people.
In this tutorial I will give you an idea of how you might want to achieve the clean style that some manga artists on RMD use. Some steps of this tutorial could also be used for still-life drawings. The only tools that are required for this style of drawing is the fill tool and the line tool.
The first step in drawing "anime style" is just that--style. What kind of character are you drawing, and for what purpose? For example, a magical schoolgirl will have a different facial structure and body proportions than, say, a villain.
Drawing a manga is usually tougher than drawing just a fanart because it requires more planning and efforts. Also writing a manga is not like writing a text story, because the pictures in the manga tell a story while the words in the novels tell the story.
Before you jump into drawing masterpieces you must first learn the framework on which all things are built.
Here's my list of art materials as requested. I'll do my best to explain what I use and why as well as where to get them.
When using colored pencil for Manga drawing, its easy to pick up tiny specks of color from dark areas, making streaks or spots through your lighter areas.
Just thought to post this here.... Bits and pieces of information I have learned about how to make a manga.
We often view Manga characters in one or two poses, most often a fairly basic, forward-facing pose. So when we need to draw the character from a different angle, they end up looking like someone else!
First things first. I thought that, before teaching anyone anatomy, materiality, cging, shading or anything alike, the first important step is to learn the process of drawing.
Nudity can be quite a touchy subject, but if anyone really want to become more advanced at drawing the anatomically correct Animanga characters in many different poses including the martial arts poses, they may have to overcome any issues they have with nudity and use it as a drawing tool.
This is the complete tutorial for developing manga stories. Hope you will find this somewhat useful.
A very very very very important drawing method is an ability to read and use the patterns in the drawings which many novice artists often failed to realize before giving up.
It can be very easy to get discouraged if you just started drawing and couldn't become as good as your favorite artist in a short time. That is another reason why many novice artists gave up on drawing by just setting their standards too high for the level of their skills.
As the artists advance with their drawing skills, they would realize how essential is it to master the basics of 3D in any 2-D drawings since the animated shows and graphic novels(manga) are very heavy in the use of 3D concept espescially the camera points of view.
It can be frustrating for you when you couldn't draw the way you wanted or duplicate what's in your mind and worse, your drawings look very irregular, lopsided and misaligned. That's because the muscles in your hands are NOT USED to drawing, and the hands can't read what's in your mind.
You can use this and all the other tutorials connected to it as a general guide to drawing anime, or you can copy this picture as precisely as you want. The choice is yours. If you actually use this to draw Ko-Chan, which I doubt most people will do, remember to give me credit for my character.
