For two years I’ve been trying to reverse engineer Miura’s traditional art and planning processes — down to the detail.
To figure out his art, I’ve tried different mediums, pencils, papers, and other little helpers. To figure out his planning methods, I have created a fancomic that imitates Miura’s emotional and cinematic style of writing and the things that are intertwined with it, e.g. the panel layout. The methods and tools I have tried may not be the exact same as Miura’s, but I think they will get you on the right path.
Well, at least in terms of tools and technique — practice is a different thing entirely…
This post is going into detail for anyone who dares imitating his art and style. It will also show you why exactly Miura’s art is one of a kind.
