Drawing Fight Scene

Hi everyone! In today’s video, I talk about how to create strategic battle scenes in your manga, comic or novel. One major aspect to a lot of shounen manga, and manga in other genres are strategic battle scenes. Strategic battles are more than simple fights. A well written battle scene will not only show a character’s unique skills, but also how they plan and strategize each of those moves. This is one of my most requested topics on my channel, so I decided to make this video especially long, in order to cover the writing process of a fight, the strategy behind it, and the drawing process. I hope that this video helps you with your manga creations!!

Drawing Fight Scene – How to Write And Draw Battle Scenes

0:00 Intro
1:04 TYPES OF WEAPONS

First of all, I talk about the various kinds of weapons and fighting styles used to manga battle scenes. The weapons I talk about include hand to hand combat, gun fighting, sword fighting, axes, mallets, magic and ranged.
This tutorial will be divided into three parts: the writing process, the strategy, and the drawing.
3:07 PART 1 – THE WRITING PROCESS

3:14 1- FOCUS ON RESULTS OVER ACTIONS
In this tip, I talk about the reason why a lot of battle scenes get tedious. It’s because in a lot of cases, the actions are shown more than the results.

4:46 2- FOCUS ON THOUGHTS OVER ACTIONS
The reason a lot of anime battles are so cool is because much of the battle is actually taking place in the character’s mind. You need to get into the character’s head, in order to make a battle more entertaining.
5:55 3- SET THE STAKES HIGH
This is where you need to answer the question of why these characters are fighting. To set the stakes, you need to give them a strong reason why they need to succeed in this battle. When your readers see how important this is, it will make the battle also more important.
6:48 4- KEEP IT FAST PACED
In battle scenes, a lot is actually left to the imagination. You might not see the punch, but you might see how the character’s face is now bleeding. Try to keep it as fast paced as possible, rather than showing every little moment.

7:56 5- ENSURE THE BATTLE ADDS TO THE STORY
Make sure that when adding a battle to your manga, it always moves the story forward. Never have a pointless battle/fight scene!
8:43 6- ADD DIALOGUE MOMENTS
This is quite self explanatory, but instead of having the characters fighting and just staying silent, try and add breaks in the fight where there is dialogue added.
9:45 7- USE THE BATTLE TO SHOW CHARACTER
A fight scene can actually be used to show a lot about character and personality. Whether they are kind, bloodthirsty, playful or egotistical, they will each have their own fighting style.
10:56 8- SHOW CHARACTER GROWTH
You shouldn’t just have a character be instantly strong the moment they pick up a sword. A character should train over the course of the story, and you should show that growth from beginner to expert.
12:40 9- GIVE CHARACTERS UNIQUE FIGHTING STYLES
No character’s techniques should be exactly the same. I recommend you try and find a way to give your character a technique that stands out.
13:56 10- RESEARCH FROM REAL FIGHTS
Actually write notes. Write about how they stand, or their positioning. Think about where they aim, or various techniques.

14:59 EXAMPLES OF Drawing Fight Scene

Here is an example of two fight scenes, one with a lot of unnecessary description, and one that allows the readers to imagine more.
15:40 Eg. 1- TOO MUCH DESCRIPTION
16:40 Eg. 2- IMPROVED VERSION

18:25 PART 2 – STRATEGY
18:55 1- THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS TO FIGHT
Remember that physical skills and strength are not the only weapons. The mind can also be a good weapon.

19:35 2- FOCUS ON CHARACTERS UNIQUE SKILLS

20:36 PART 3 – DRAWING
20:51 1 – USE A VARIETY OF ANGLES
22:44 2 – DRAW THE LINES OF MOTION
23:24 3 – USE SPEED LINES/IMPACT STARS
24:00 4 – USE SOUND EFFECTS
24:16 5 – BREAK DOWN THE BATTLE
25:40 6 – SHOW THE IMPACT
26:28 7 – FIND THE CENTER OF GRAVITY
27:00 8 – STUDY FROM REAL FIGHTS
