Manga Artist One Punch Man’s Incredible “Practice” Drawing Is So Good We Thought He Might Not Be Human

The drawing of drinking glasses seems to be beyond the limits of what humans should be able to do..

There are some things we know for sure Yusuke Murata. We know that he spent his early years living in Miyagi prefecture, he designed two classic mega Man bosses when he was in high school, and went on to become a professional manga artistillustrating successful series eye shield 21 and One Punch Man.

What we don’t know, however, is if murata is human or not. No, there haven’t been any reports of him having a third eye or wings growing out of his back, but the guy’s drawing skills seem to transcend the limits of mortal men with surprising frequency.

The latest example comes from Murata’s Twitter account, where he has been sharing some of his practice drawings. No in-progress manga panel previews or anything, just some non-narrative artwork he’s been doing to sharpen his already honed abilities.

That impressively detailed glass sphere, for example, is something Murata drew in Photoshop. Two days later, Murata shared a sphere of a different kind, a drawing of a ball with a reflective metallic surface, that he made as part of his regular “morning practice.”

But where things reach superhuman levels is Murata’s most recent image, of a fancy drinking glass he made, casually describing it as “Practice. Glass” in the tweet.

And when we say Murata “made” it, we don’t mean he crafted an actual glass, because even if it looks realistic, it’s still a drawing!

At this point, Murata’s fanbase has gotten pretty used to being in awe, but this is on another level even for him, and reactions include:

“Knowing this is a drawing is breaking my brain!”
“I knew Murata was good, but this is a ridiculous ability.”
“This… is… ‘PRACTICE?'”
“I never knew it was possible for a drawing to be as good as madness.”
“The guy is off the charts.”

Murata even managed to surprise other professional manga artists, including a true legend of the field, Joji/George Morikawaboxing manga created Hajime no Ippowhich has been running for over 30 years.

“Please stop. It’s getting to the point where I can’t even say I’m in the same line of work as you anymore. Morikawa tweeted in admiration.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Murata always had some kind of innate talent for drawing, but no matter how artistically gifted he was as a child, there’s no way he would have become as skilled as he is today without a lot of diligence. work, as evidenced by the fact that he even now makes drawing practice a regular part of his day. That’s actually a good parallel between him and Eyeshield 21’s the protagonist Sena, a naturally fast runner who still practices like crazy as he aspires to become the best of the best on the soccer field, just like Murata is still looking for ways to go to the next level, even as many fans already they would. they say he is on top of the manga world.
