But seriously, don't force yourself to draw in a manga style just because it's common. If anything, having an uncommon style might draw in the plethora of readers who are tired of seeing manga-inspired comics everywhere xP People don't read manga-style comics because they're manga-style, they read them because it's a style they can readily understand and because that's what's given to them. If you have a well-made comic that's not manga-esque, that's perfectly fine.
However, don't draw your comic in a completely realistic style unless the story calls for it. Not only will it look "off", it'll also take much longer to draw. Learn to stylize your work consistently, so that it reads more immediately/clearly than realism, and so that you can draw it more quickly.
Of course, I'm not even sure what you mean by "realism." Your dA is empty, and I suspect we might be talking about different things...

realism= realstic = REAL LIFE! (So look around at people thats what style I mean )
eishiya wrote:What mitchellbravo meant is this, I think: "What people really look like" isn't a style. When you draw it, you inevitably stylize it (a depiction of an object is not that object, it is stylized simply by being depicted) and then you can call that a style. Even a photo is not reality.

Are you sure that you are horrible at drawing manga?
Because the manga fan art looks much better than this single realistic attempt.
Or is it that you did object drawing?
Do this next time for the realistic work ...a photo of a friend or a family member. Put it an the wall/desk/what ever and try to draw it.eishiya wrote:Learn the foundations (which are based on reality and are thus easiest to practice with realism), then simplify/exaggerate (stylize) them to fit your story.
Best advice in perpetuity ...ever and ever again.
