Use this size when drawing for the majority of manga magazines.

Commercial manga magazines are drawn in B4 size and then reduced to 82% and made into manga magazines.

B5 size

• While B4 paper is used, the drawing does not use up the entire page. Actually, the drawing area is fixed to about A4 size.

• NOTE: If B4 paper is reduced, it will not be B5 size (magazine size). The fixed A4 size drawing area when reduced will be B5 size.

Paper Quality:

Kento paper, art paper, and high-quality 90-kg and 135-kg paper are the types most often used in drawing manga. (135-kg paper is thicker and more durable than 90-kg paper.)

Since blue pencil < lines don't show up in the printing, some people like to do outlines with them.

Pencil Lines

The frame lines and guidelines are done in blue because this color does not show up when printed.

• NOTE: Lines drawn in blue pencil that are too strong will show when printed. Yellow lines will not show up at all. Red lines, however, will turn black when printed.
