Drawing Manga

So I’m not much into Anime, but the only humanoid drawing style I’ve ever been interested in is drawing manga.
Does anybody have any tips or the like? Because Im completely new to manga style.

Try practicing drawing characters from a magna style you like. And then switch to another style, when you get bored of the current style you are practicing. It’s just a lot of practice and experience.

Okay, thanks.
Do you know what the style with big eyes is called? Because thats the one I like best.

Try experimenting with different styles from different generations of anime (like 1950’s-early 1960’s Tezuka style characters or 1980’s stylized designs of shows and OVA’s like Urusei Yatsura and Dirty Pair). This can help with proportions of character and give some stuff to practice with that can help evolve your own style.

Manga is drawn like a comic, anime is animated

I’d reccomend tracing first just to practice designs like faces, hair, clothing, etc.
