6. How can you say that when you draw so much like the Americans?
Do I? What is the “American” style of drawing comics? Look at any batch of American comic books and you will see that they are a melting pot of styles from all over the world. The styles are so varied, so wildly different that one cannot come up with a unifying set of characteristics that can comprise a single art “style”.
And that is why manga is so unique. The Japanese were able to create a style that has a very specific style, allowing for a certain amount of individuality, but are so similar that they can be grouped into one unified movement of art.
