Hi, I just learned how to draw manga after reading the Pandora Hearts series, but the only things I can draw are faces. I bought a manga drawings kit and my grandma says I need to draw more than just faces and I'd love to learn to draw more than a profile. I'm big on writing fanfictions, but I have a few original ideas that I'd like to draw the characters without bases. Do you have any tutorials about how to draw full-bodies manga? Because I can't get the bodily proportions correct, no matter how many times I try either the head is too big or the body is too big for the head. Could you please help me?
