Human Bodies In Motion Punch In The Face

Change the direction of the face and body:

I'AV

liilllllifc

mmsm

mmsm

rv.v

When the hit is either slow or weak

Only the direction of the face changes while the body still remains facing forward. However, the impact will cause the body to lean a little towards the opposite side that was hit.

3. Upper-CUtS Draw the attacked-

character's neck a little

A long, wind-up variation. Bending the attacked-character's body like a bow, lets the reader imagine that the blow delivered to the chin was powerful enough to raise the entire weight of the body.

Be sure and show the attacked-character's jaw even if attacked directly from the side.

Showing the side of the face gives the impression that the blow was delivered diagonally instead of from below.

Use slightly low-angle shots when you want to show the attacked-character's face. Using a close-up on the attacked-character's face makes the situation look grave.

Drawing the fist above the jaw can better show the force of the uppercut.

"Harite" Variations

They are called various things -

bear punch, open-palm punch

Kicked area

• • lines for straight-line kicks (front kicks and sidekicks)

There are a variety of kicks depending on the target (face, chin/jaw, side of the head, back of the head, etc.) and circumstances. In manga, according to your taste, the effect lines vary by the types of kicks delivered.

• • lines for straight-line kicks (front kicks and sidekicks)

Bending the line a little from the ankle to the tiptoe make the kick v look sharp.

5. Punched Faces - Front View

6. Punched Faces - Rear View

Waist facing forward

The body faces in a different direction than the waist. This makes the waist look twisted.

Twisting the waist and leaning the body forward creates a 'punching' atmosphere.

Waist facing forward

If the head, torso and waist are all in the same direction (i.e. no twisting in the lower extremities), the body won't look like it is punching.

Good example

Simple Drawings

Punching means putting the character's weight into it. Leaning the character forward renders the sense of the character punching with all his might.

Head and waist facing in the same direction (top)

head and upper-body facing in the same direction (bottom)

The body faces in a different direction than the waist. This makes the waist look twisted.

The leg on the opposite side of the punching arm sticks out.

The chest faces toward the opponent.

The leg on the opposite side of the punching arm sticks out.

The centerline of the waist faces in the opposite direction from the centerline of the chest.

The chin in an upward position renders a sense of desperation.

The waist faces in the opposite direction of the opponent.

You can draw the fist upside down too.

Looking at the opponent and punching through the line of sight with the chin down makes for a cool effect.

SLAAAP'

WHAP! WHAP!

Not twisting the waist and having the character slap creates a mood.

The hair swinging creates the sense of being suddenly slapped. Draw the neck a little on the long side when the head swings directly to the side, This works for both serious scenes and comedy.

downward diagonal slap creates a more serious mood. Expressions facing downward ephasize the 'deep meaning' of the scene.

Draw the 'hid mark' in the position where the head was.

For violent slaps, the character gets mowed down to one side while the direction of the face and body remain facing forward. This is slightly different from standard punches and kicks.
