Manga de GO (A.K.A. Ngago)
- In this section located on page 210, Oda reveals the supplies he uses to draw One Piece.
O: I get many questions about manga supplies, but since I don't know a whole lot about them myself (whoa), I decided I would simply talk about the supplies that I use personally and know about from experience. To be honest, it doesn't really matter, though.
Paper: It's called "Muse Manga Manuscript" paper.
40 in a pack. I get them plain, so they're totally blank. For beginners, try looking for those that have outlines already drawn on them.
Pen: "Zebra G-pen" (L) "Zebra Round Pen" (R)
These are just tips, so you have to insert them onto pen handles that they sell in stores.
Ink: "Pilot Securities Ink"
This depends on your taste. I know that most people use "drawing ink" instead.
Tones: "I-C Screen"
These are screentones. When you read manga, you see places that look like they've been lightly shaded or colored, but those are actually transparent sticker-like things that you cut out and affix onto the page. It's probably a pain for people who use them a lot. There's various handy tricks to using them well.
Right. This is all you need to become a manga artist. The rest depends on skill.
