According to my “many year” experiences in drawing manga, I found tat draw a gal is pretty harder than draw a boy. Why?? Maybe I m a boy, so I couldn’t understand gal?!
As we know, female hav differences from male not only in physical but mental too. Ok, dunwan to talk so much in this topic. Below are sum of my drawing during this bored looong vocation. Since my drawing skill haven reach mature stt, so sum of they r drawn from reference.

How to draw a beautiful gal leh? In my opinions, if u wanna 'make'
Above one, is a gal who wearing a seductive black bikini, holding a big hat n sitting on beach, enjoying da sunshine. This gal turning back her head, n give a magnetic n confident smile. In Chinese, this style called 回眸一笑百媚生 (literally meaning Turning back n give a smile shows hundred of prettiness). This pic, is a Typical gal tat most of male like: very NATURAL n a bit wild, so I put a 女, why?? Because 女, this character hav similar shape with tat gal pose: a hand holding a hat, n 2 opened legs, do u guys think tat?!?! Hahaha……

Secondly, a long hair gals, both hands holding a bunch of flowers, also do da same pose like above one, turning back her head n give a smile. But this smile is totally different from upper one, this gal smile a bit sadly n unhappy look. The wind blows, made her hair n her skirt ‘flying’ to left. It can portrait the Feeling of sadly beautiful. (凄美的感觉). This pic, I put a 仪, 仪 means courteous n beautiful looking, Yes, same meaning as da pic, n also hav similar look wit da gal’s pose.

Thirdly, a young gal wit 2 housetails-hair, wearing ancient Chinese (Song Dynasty) cloth, holding a bamboo stick, give a kung fu pose. This gal named Huang Rong (黄蓉), is da gal who I most favourite in Jinyong/Louis Cha (金庸) novels. Huang is a main character of “Saga of Condor Hero”(射雕英雄传), she is cute, beautiful, energetic, kind-hearted, n most important is She is very very very intelligent n smart but sumtime very cunning ( in positive way lah). She is a nice gal. u will never b bored when she is beside u. So I put 灵, means very smart n clever. N da character 灵 also has same pose wit she, isn’t it?

Hmmmm….. This pic mah…. 2005’s U6S2 is my previous form six class. Ok. In da pic,
some long hair, some short hair;

This pic din specify who n who, but it shows a general features of U6S2 gals. Wished I din offend anyone. :p
OkOk… most of my recent drawings’ style is influenced by a Japanese manga drawer, she is Kawakata Kaoru (河方薫), she draws very nice n correct to scale in human drawing, she ady my ‘teacher’. I just a very beginner in manga drawing, hoped everyone who view my kaillery, can give me comments.
