Introduction: Coloring a Manga Drawing

A manga drawing is no fun without coloring it. Vibrant, beautiful colors make it look good!!!
To start drawing view manga drawing by ilovebooks.

Step 1: The Colors

For this drawing I used Crayola color pencils.The respective colors are:
hair       -  mahogany
shirt      -  magenta
jacket    -  yellow
eyes      -  jade green
skin       -  yellow orange and pink

Step 2: Eyes

Outline the eyes with a dark pencil. Color the right half leaving the highlight white black. Color the remaining space left in the eye any color- green, blue, black, lavender, etc. Color the face.

Step 3: Clothes

Color her shirt any color you wish but in this instructable I used magenta. color the jacket too. I used yellow.

Step 4: The Hair

Color the hair and the bangs any color you wish. To add the feeling of reddish brown hair, I used mahogany. This is my own character rose!
